My wife and I stayed here in March for 3 nights in one of the lower units without a/c. Looking back I would have gotten the a/c considering the temperature. Fan was fine, but I was still very warm. There was a real mix of people staying here. Surfers, older couples, to backpackers. People beside us usually had music playing,... More

We spent 4 nights at this place with another couple. The first night we arrived it was quite late and the owner waited for us to arrive (which was greatly appreciated). The walk up the hill is always a rough one but we were prepared to handle it and it keeps you active :) The service was great, rooms were... More

You have to be dedicated to get up the hill on arrival at this hotel but it is definitely worth it for the view when you arrive. All the rooms look out over to the beach and the sunsets are beautiful. The rooms are pretty basic but you don't need anything here as the view is so good! The bathrooms... More

Came here from a personal recommendation. Lovely friendly owner, pretty views - very relaxing. A short walk downhill to the town. Fantastic food at the restaurant and nice pool. Amazing view to wake up to. You just have to walk back up hill to get home :)

Here's why you should stay here: Best View in Mal Pais, owners that take pride in their establishment, CLEAN and well maintained, private and quiet as it is set back and up from the road, nice clean swimming pool, great yard with many places to sit and have a few drinks to enjoy the sunset, terrific value (trip advisor rate...

Hotel Buenos Aires is perfection. We were immediately greeted by Javier and he showed us around and gave us good information about the town. Prior to arrival, I emailed Javier multiple times and he was quick with responses and helped me with planning our trip and setting up transportation. We stayed in an upstairs room with AC and were very... More
