Cinzia and Fiorenzo are fantastic hosts and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our first time in Carrillo. Absolutely everything was wonderful... the quiet, beautiful setting, the spotless and comfortable room (which is cleaned daily), the fresh, homemade, delicious and varied breakfast every morning, and the wonderfully warm and welcoming hosts. You can tell that... More

The owners of this place did everything to make our stay perfect! The B&B has only 2 rooms which makes the whole place very private. We loved the details: from a perfect homemade breakfast that changed every day to the lovely furnished room. Carillo is a very small town and if you are looking for something quiet and private then... More

If you are at all thinking of coming to the Samara/Playa Carrillo area you must stay at Casa Buenavista Bed & Breakfast. It is a lovely home about 200 meters from one of the nicest beaches in the world. The location alone makes it a worthwhile stop on your travels but what makes it a destination are the amazing host...

The details are everything. But they are nothing without a good structure at the base. At Casa Buena Vista, a few hundreds meters from the huge and quiet playa carrillo, both aspects are excellent. Perfectly clean and ordered, every single detail is almost maniacally curate. And what about the organic, rich and so tasty breakfasts prepared with absolute mastery by... More

We chose Casa Buenavista based upon the excellent reviews. Cinzia and Fiorenzo are special hosts as described and certainly helped make our trip perfect for our needs. Playa Carillo is an amazingly beautiful and unspoiled beach. Breathtaking might be the best way to describe it. There are no hotels on the beach and never will be any. Therefore the lodging... More
