We definitely got our taste of costa rica adventure staying in this private bungalow. When it says its in the middle of nature, expect lots of bugs. Unfortunately for us it proved too much, but thankfully Avtar and Jan made accommodations in another room. They were extremely helpful with giving us directions. Great hospitality.

Response from Eden:
Thanks Karla. It is true that our Guesthouse rooms provide a modern and less challenging stay. We are glad we were able to offer you that alternative. The private bungalow, being set off on its own, and completely surrounded by dense gardens and jungle, can, at times, be a little overwhelming for those not used to Costa Rica's amazing biodiversity. This is mostly true in June when all those things that have been dormant through our long dry season suddenly make their appearance. At this time of year (June), as Karla pointed out, the Guesthouse rooms are the best choice for those who might be off-put by the intensity of jungle nature, while the cabina remains a great choice for those who are more attracted to seeing Costa Rica in all of its intensity and glory. Having said that, we have undertaken to have contractors come in this week to make sure that that glory is always and only on the other side of the private bungalow's windows.

We were welcomed with cut flowers, fruit salad, fresh eggs, and a delicious treat to eat. Pros: Beautifully landscaped tropical paradise. Clean, well-maintained swimming pool. A very nice drive from the airport area was pre-arranged-- the driver was excellent and a wonderful person to welcome us to Costa Rica. The community patio was very inviting and had an amazing display of flowers, beautiful sunsets, and an array of bird species. Cons: Despite being close to Atenas, walking is not feasible and a taxi is required for any trips to town. The place is in serious need of maintenance and a good spring cleaning (e.g., cobwebs in window sills and on ceilings). Screens that now are torn or fixed with band-aids need to be replaced to keep insects outside. Even the mosquito netting surrounding the bed will not keep small insects out. This made the room very uncomfortable when trying to read with lights on in the evening hours. Ants abound despite major efforts to keep all surface areas clean. There is no hot water in the kitchen or bathroom sinks and the limited water from the shower is lukewarm at best. The double-bed could seriously use a new mattress if you care to sleep in comfort. NOTE: The proprietor, Jan, is a sweet and kind woman who was very accommodating and pleasant to work with.

Eden Atenas is so beautiful and peaceful. As a woman traveling alone, I felt totally safe there. I had all the privacy and alone time I wanted as well as social time and great conversation. Jan and Avtar were perfect hosts, providing so much helpful information and guidance. Jan's breakfast was every bit as wonderful as rumored! And the dogs, Max and Lilly, were so sweet. Loved my stay, my room, the rain, meeting other guests, making new friends, and everything about my stay.

A wonderful place to stay amongst the birds and trees, our "private cabin" was indeed private, overlooking the forest with huge windows and an airy feel to it. Although it was just one open-plan room it felt very spacious. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was simple but very nice to work in, and the desk was a very welcome bonus! I loved it! Avtar & Jan were wonderful hosts, making us feel very at home. Jan took care of us in every way and even made us some delicious "treats" and arranged taxis, etc. The whole of Eden Atenas, with its several living spaces, beautiful gardens and fruit trees, and community-feel, was a tropical paradise. Atenas town is not too far, with a lovely weekly market. It was a wonderful area to relax and rejuvenate. We did not want to leave after 10 days and continued to miss being there! Perhaps we will return when the time is right!

We had a such wonderful experience at Eden Atenas. Although the pictures are breathtaking, they hardly do the view justice. Sitting on the porch overlooking the gardens, you feel as though you are in absolute paradise. My boyfriend, now fiancée, proposed to me on our balcony. That's how perfect the view is. Jan and Avtar were terrific hosts. They exuded hospitality and went above and beyond to make sure our experience was perfect. Jan prepared a breakfast that has been the best meal of the trip. She went to great lengths to prepare is a five star meal. Avtar gave us a tour of the grounds and wonderful lesson on the local plant life. They were always around to answer any question, or provide pleasant conversation. All the while, completely respecting our space. We felt like we were completely alone in the middle of the jungle, but with two new friends right up the path. We stayed here because of its proximity to the airport, but will be making a return trip because of our experience. They even set up a driver for us that was also a great tour guide. I truly have nothing but positive things to say.

Eden Atenas is aptly named. The lush gardens are truly like a slice of Eden. The amazing botanical diversity and the splashes of vibrant color everywhere make this the most beautiful spot I encountered in Costa Rica. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our mornings sitting on the cabina balcony, sipping our tea and watching the abundance of butterflies flit from bush to bush. Jan and Avtar are warm, welcoming hosts, always ready to answer questions, give tips, and engage in intelligent conversation. Don't miss out on Jan's culinary expertise - we had a few meals there and enjoyed them immensely, especially when in the company of Jan and Avtar.
