We enjoyed our stay so very much. Jan and Avtar were incredibly gracious and the breakfasts were absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. So nice to enjoy the garden setting while chatting with interesting people at the start of the day. Max and Lily were fun and extremely well behaved. The apartment was more room than we really needed, but very...

My wife and I stayed here last year in April. It was incredible. Jan and Avtar are two wonderful people, who work very hard for their guests. You will not find a place to stay anywhere with better hosts. The grounds of Eden Atenas are breathtaking and are as good as some of the gardens you might pay money to...

This was a wonderful surprise. I was in Atenas to buy a property and this was my first stay at the Eden. It's a very relaxed atmosphere - great views, plenty of privacy, sumptuous (!!!) breakfasts (thanks, Jan) and well-read and accomplished reconteur in Avtar with whom I spent some wonderful time. The rooms are very clean and well-appointed and...

Just returned from a week long stay at Eden. As soon as you arrive you understand the name. Lush gardens make up the entire property. Stunningly beautiful. The hosts, Jan and Avtar are welcoming and accommodating. Jan's breakfasts really do live up to all the hype! Hands down the best breakfast I've had in Costa Rica. The family German Shepherds...

Beautiful grounds. Like being in a tropical jungle . You can have a room in the main house which are very nice. There was also a private apartment and a casita if you want more privacy. Good breakfasts and you can request good size portions. Nice pool and very relaxing

Eden Atenas is a lovely place. This B&B style accommodation was just the right spot for my first few nights in Costa Rica. It had an amazing garden view and views of the hilltops from the balcony. You can tell the owners took great pride in the beautiful garden. It's like a tropical and botanical paradise. I enjoyed my stay,...

Staying at Eden Atenas it felt like we were in middle of a tropical forest instead of only a few minutes from Atenas. The owners have beautiful gardens throughout property. Clean and comfortable. Felt very much at home. We stayed in the apartment just steps down from pool. Large terrace with lots of living space and full kitchen overlook the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Centrally located to be near the airport and many of Costa Rica's best attractions, yet a world away from the tourist bustle, Eden Atenas is the perfect headquarters for your Costa Rican visit. Here you will be tempted to just relax by the pool, enjoy spectacular tropical gardens (the work of tropical horticulturist Jan and design enthusiast Avtar), watch Toucans or Mot Mots, and be wowed by the best breakfast in the country. Whether you are helping yourself to a mango off the tree, lounging amongst the hibiscus, bougainvillea, gardenia, and jasmine, or watching sunrise over the volcano, you will have no trouble understanding why we call this place Eden. The only complaint we ever hear, is "If I'd only known, I would have stayed longer" ... more   less
