This the third time we have stayed at Vista Canyon Inn. It is like going home. You are welcomed by Dave and Marsha with a feeling of warmth and genuine care for you safety, enjoyment and further trip planning if needed. The inn is clean and beautifully landscaped. The staff is quite accommodating and will even aid you if you are heading out to the rain forest or coastal region. Breakfasts are great and change each morning. They include fruit, eggs and a variety of Costa Rican food items including empanadas and rellenos. This is a great place to start a holiday after a flight and I’m sure it would work well if you were in Costa Rica on business or visiting for medical procedures. I will certainly return.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Vista Canyon Inn. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. The entire staff is friendly and go out of their way to make you safe and happy. It is so much better than a hotel, like a home away from home. The Inn is very clean, and the room was well appointed with comfortable beds and daily cleaning. Breakfast each morning and coffee was delicious. There are many areas to sit, great view, hot tub and pool. Our guide from the Inn, Gerardo, took us on many tours all around Costa Rica, and many special places on the locals know. This made for a unique and special time for us. He is very friendly and helpful. We were dental tourists, and Dave the owner took great care of us, picking us up from the airport and shuttling us back and forth to appointments. He even took us to the grocery store. We could not have had a better experience.

What a delightful Inn to stay at. Everyone makes you feel as if you were part of the family. The day we arrived they were having a birthday party for one of the guests and invited us to participate. The rooms are so comfortable and inviting. Wonderful breakfast each morning. Location is beautiful overlooking a gorgeous canyon with beautiful landscape . Definitely recommend staying here. Thank you so much to Dave for an awesome stay. Tom and I look forward to seeing you again.

This place is a hidden jem, from start to end we were greeted like we were family. you get the most delicious breakfast and if you are lucky enough you might get cooked dinners from guests who love to include the whole complex or from the owner who amazingly cooked everyone a Thankgiving dinner while we were there. The grounds are beautifully maintain and loved having a pool and a hot tub. this is the place that you go and leave with many friendships. I think the common area where all guests can sit and have meals is such great feature. You get to meet other guests if you really want to. The rooms are nice and clean and the beds are comfortable. Marsha, Dave and Gerardo treat you like family and that is hard to find in this world right now. thank you for the hospitality, you made our three day stay an unforgetable. I can't wait to go back. Tania and Dave

It was great to host you if only for one Night. You definitely took advantage of the pool, hot tub, and adult beverage selection at the bar during your short stay. WHICH WE LOVE. So glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to having you with us again on your next visit to Costa Rica. Safe travels home Marsha, Dave, Eleazar and staff.
