We were looking for somewhere to stay for our last couple of nights before flying home and were drawn to Atenas because it was rumoured to have the best climate in the world. The Orchid Tree is a great place to enjoy that climate, whether that's watching hummingbirds from the breezy lounge/dining area or relaxing in a swinging chair by...

Brad and Pat have a beautiful place and they are terrific hosts. Their story is one that more people should consider, re-evaluate your priorities and live a more rewarding life. We could not have had a more enjoyable entry into the country as these folks gave us. No need to look any farther if you are wanting a place just...

We are having a great stay here by the pool on our last day in Costa Rica. It's just 20min from the airport. I highly recommend it as an entry stay as well as an exit like we are using it. Brad and Patricia have some great advice for those entering the country and for us they provide a beautiful...

We stayed at the Orchid Tree for 4 nights and did several excursions around the valley. It is about a 5 minute drive to Atenas, where you can find a good selection of restaurants. Pat and Brad are wonderful hosts, who try to make your stay as comfortable as it can be, while being unobtrusive. The breakfasts, which are plentiful...

I gave this B&B five stars because there wasn't anywhere on this site I could give it six! Previous reviewers have said everything I could have written here so rather than repeat them there are things I can add such as in bed and breakfasts where we have stayed before we have felt obligated to vacate the premises after breakfast...

We chose the Orchid Tree for our last night in Costa Rica. What a great decision that was! Brad and Pat were such gracious hosts. This place is gorgeous and peaceful!

The Orchid tree is very relaxing, beautiful, and with super great owners Pat and Brad. I was interested to visit Atenas because it's close to nature, not touristy, 30 mins from airport, and has the best climate in the world according the National Geographic Magazine. The owners Pat and Brad are incredible hosts that are 100% devoted to their guests,...

We just returned from a wonderful holiday in Pura Vida Land. What made it memorable was our stay at the Orchid Tree. Brad picked us up from the airport, gave us tips about the area and drove us to town everyday. We would wake up each morning to the delightful call of the roosters and the birds, and to the...
