I had a birthday BBQ with friends on a Sunday afternoon by the pool. We were permitted to bring dj equipment and play music the whole afternoon/evening. Alex was a nice host. We got very lost on the way there and he offered to meet us to lead us back to the apartment. On Sunday, route 27 (highway from San Jose) was completely blocked (2nd time this has happened to me on this hwy on a sunday) so we had to take the long way through La Garita to get to the apartment, which took twice as long. Alex maintained contact throughout.
The property is as beautiful as it looks in the photos. The apartment was clean and comfortable and had towels, kitchenette, utensils, cable tv and everything we needed for the bbq. There are also nice, clean bathrooms by the pool which made it very comfortable for our guests. Perfect place for a weekend getaway.
Let me just say if you're into warm, generous, and extremely hospitable people. As well as beautiful and original landscaping and architecture. Look no further than casa verde. We only stayed one night but we felt like we've known them forever. I won't cheapen the experience with words. It's really just something you have to experience for yourself. Absolutely a must stay, whether it be one night after flying in or one night before flying out, just do it. Trust me, if you don't have a good experience here or with the family, it's not them.... It's you. Cheers!! Thanks again!!!!!
Casa Verde Atenas was beautiful! It was a great price for what comes along with it. Each apartment has a King bed, a kitchenette and a shower with warm water. Alex, our host was very friendly and answered any questions we had about Atenas! Highly recommend! Perfect for couples!
Casa Verde Atenas is, without a doubt, a beautiful, warm, and enchanting experience. Our host Alex and his family made us feel very welcome indeed, with Vilma's INCREDIBLE breakfasts and talks with the family. The experience is authentic; something you'd never get in a hotel. The apartments are beautiful, comfortable, well-designed, and clean. The gardens are to die for, and spending time in the Rancho beside the pool is amazing. We give Casa Verde Atenas 10 out of 10! Go for the food, the views, the amenities, the proximity to town (and other beautiful places in CR), the friendship, and practice your Spanish ! We absolutely loved this place and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a real and warm Costa Rica experience.
The entrance to Casa Verde Atenas was beautiful with flowers and fruit trees all around the property. When we arrived we were shown two apartments that where located above two other apartments one of which was the casa verde atenas office. The apartments were modern and well designed. There Is an opening above the beds for airflow, a bed net would be useful. They were doing construction In the rear of the property, so we did not use the pool or the sauna. Alex was very kind and accommodating. Casa verde Atenas is in a nice area, right off the highway, near many stores and restaurants and close to the airport.
Casa Verde is a fantastic place to stay while in Costa Rica. Alex and his family are an extremely charming and welcoming family. Our room was very spacious and clean, with a fully equipped kitchenette. The pool is a great addition and the great breakfast is just the cherry on top! A quick drive from SJO and a good way, relaxing way to start a trip in Costa Rica. Would definitely stay here again.
The house was difficult to find, but Mr Alex is the best. He went out of his way to help us. The house Is gorgeous. A nice place to stay right off of the highway, which is nice if you need to get to the airport. It's only 15 minutes away. The hot tub isn't hot, but a great place to relax. Overall a lovely experience.
