Intoxicating, rich, colorful, extensive gardens with many pathways and places to sit and watch all the numerous birds and butterflies. Truly unique.
Zero gravity chairs, benches, rocking chairs, hammocks from so many view points we recently had a guest complain, "there are too many amazing views to place oneself, it was just too difficult to choose!"
Pool is kept pristine with minimal chemicals.
Each day a new creation from the kitchen inspired by whats fresh from our organic gardens.
Peace and tranquility is the essence of this Garden of Eden.

Interaction with Guests
Hosts are easily accessible for questions, travel plans, and socializing if desired.
We arrived late in the evening after being being lost in the dark... we were welcomed warmly, our room was super clean and the wifi worked perfectly. Only the next morning when we woke up to the sound of birds that we realised how beautiful the garden was, all sorts of birds and butterflies fly by non stop. Our breakfast was delicious.
I would definitely recommand this place without any hesitation.
If you are a traveler who enjoys a slightly more rustic setting surrounded by gorgeous gardens and plentiful wildlife, Eden Atenas is the place for you. The proprietors are very welcoming and pay attention to every detail. Jan's breakfasts are magnificent, while Avtar is a masterful concierge in a very relaxed atmosphere. Getting to know the other guests was a high point of the adventure, and by the time we left we felt like old friends. Though I hadn't planned a future visit to Costa Rica, I feel that I will be visiting Eden Atenas again.
We really had a great time at this place. They welcome us as they know us for a long time. The room was clean, the breakfast was AWESOME and the garden very beautiful. We felt safe with the gate and the two dogs. They help us to find great activity. The Wi-Fi works very well and I'm sure you'll love this place. Ask for the "Titi room" :-)
Our stay at Eden Atenas was wonderful! Jan and Avtar are gracious hosts and masters of their craft. Jan made delicious breakfast each morning which turned out to be the best food we had during our trip. And Avtar helped us plan what we would do each day including calling us a taxi since we didn't have a rental car. Some of our best memories from our trip happened while relaxing at Eden and talking with the hosts and other guests. Also, staying in Atenas gave us a feel for the real Costa Rican culture and lifestyle. I would recommend Eden Atenas to anyone! Thanks!
We spent our last day in Costa Rica in Atenas Paradise, and it may sound a cliché but for us it was nothing short of that: a bite of paradise.
We had a very relaxing afternoon, an interesting walk in the garden, and a really enjoyable chat with our remarkable host, Avtar.
We had an early flight, unfortunately, so we missed Jan's famous breakfast. (She packed us two muffins, though.)
Great room too, with a great bathroom, hammock and rocking chairs on the balcony,...
I even loved the dogs!
In short: only superlatives!
La experiencia ha sido genial, la pareja que nos acogió son una gente encantadora. El me ayudo muchísimo y fue muy amable. Ademas tuvimos conversaciones muy interesantes y distendidas. La casa y el entorno son preciosos, Que naturaleza, que música natural, la diversidad de pájaros, plantas….Realmente un Edén paradisiaco. Jan, una mujer que adora lo que hace, cocina con tanto cariño que hace auténticas obras de arte. Una artista de la cocina!
Muy recomendable y para repetir.
I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Here's why:
The basics: Great rooms, idyllic location, stable and high quality wifi (a rarity in CR), the best breakfasts I've ever encountered, a great pool, 2 lovely dogs.
But those individual bits don't capture the whole that Avtar and Jan have created here. They have created an environment where you feel cared for, afforded your own space, where you have two wonderfully spirited and knowledgeable hosts accessible to you at all times. Jan is a fantastically open spirit, with seemingly boundless kindness and creativity. Avtar is an absolute colossus of a thinker: able to be profoundly thought-provoking and profoundly funny all in the same sentence. The two together make for a perfect environment of transformation. The kind of thing that a stay in paradise is all about.
