Fodor's Expert Review Colinas del Sol

C. Boquerón, 600 m east of high school gym, Atenas, Alajuela, 20501, Costa Rica

Although it is just a few blocks from the center of Atenas, this pleasant German-owned lodging feels like it's in the country, with remodeled bungalows arranged throughout wooded grounds. Nine of the bungalows contain a kitchenette and sleep up to four people; the six smaller units come with a refrigerator and coffeemaker. You can bend and twist with bilingual yoga classes in the salon or take a dip in the large swimming pool. A covered rancho-style restaurant rounds out the property.
