3 words: clean, quiet, friendly. Well, 3 words is not enough to describe this place. It was the best hotel we stayed in Costa Rica. it is a really good price-quality hotel. The restaurant is also the best in town. We will certainly come back here for our next trip to Costa Rica!

We went with some friends planning on staying 2 days and we ended up staying 12!! You wake up in the morning to an amazing 180 view of the sea and can watch the surfers catching the... More

We have a home in the area, and often eat in the hotel restaurant (Brisas del Mar). When doing so, I have often looked up at the hotel and wondered what it must be like up there. So this past trip I walked up to it and was blown away by the site.

It is my 10th time visiting Surf Hotel Buenos Aires in Costa Rica, sometimes together with my friends, sometimes only with my wife and also alone. Definitely the best spot to check swell and to get in touch... More

Wake up to the smell of coffee, and the sound of surf thundering below. Open your door, walk out onto the terrace, fill your cup with freshly brewed Costa Rican gold, and look out over the beach hundreds of feet below. From the chair you are sitting in, you can see for miles, and think about where you want to... More
