Stayed two nights with my husband and the place is good for the price. Javier is friendly and helpful and makes guest feel very welcome. Only two downers the beds and pillows were a bit too hostel and need to be retired and if you don't have an ATV OR 4WD you need a Sherpa to get up there. Other... More

My partner and I have just returned home from an incredible three weeks holiday travelling around the spectacular country of Costa Rica. We hired a car for 11 days, but apart from this we only had a rough idea of our travel plans. We ended up heading for Santa Teresa initially for two nights, but ended up staying at Buenos... More

First time to Costa Rica and I have to say honestly that I did not see another hotel in Santa Teresa that I would have rather stayed at. Hotel Buenos Aires is perfecto! It sits on top of a big hill which is nice because it is just far enough away from town to feel "secluded" and very relaxing, with... More

Peace, quiet, good food, exercise, sunshine, friendly people and no worries. A prescription that we had no problem following. Everyone comments on the view for good reason- simply spectacular.

My husband and I stayed at Buenos Aires for a week in February, 2015. The view from the balcony was stunning. We made sure to be out there every evening to watch the glorious sunset over the Pacific Ocean. It was so breathtaking it brought me to tears. The rooms are simple, but more than adequate and very clean. Javier... More

We stayed at Buenos Aires for 6 nights in March 2015 and it was fantastic. From the beginning, Javier was helping us out. He recommended Surf lessons for us, booked our zip-lining and arranged our taxi to and from the airport. He gave us tips on where to go and how to get there. Its on top of a huge... More

We had a wonderful stay in Buenos Aires hotel where we spent 4 nights in Feb 2015. The rooms are simple but comfortable, and Javier is always willing to give his tips. The 100m steep walk to get there is really worth it for the view and the hospitality of Javier! We also really enjoyed the swimming pool after surfing.... More
