The bungalow we more than I could have asked for. Amazing views with great breezes. Our bungalow had AC but its nice to sit in the hammock and not sweat to death. Ryan was a great host, and The Red Snapper at the bottom has some of the best paella in the world!

My buddy and I were here for a few nights at the end of March after meeting a local at a beach bar who recommended the casitas/bungalows. The views are amazing, the tranquility as well, nothing compares. Thanks to the Buenisimo staff for an unmatched CR trip

Friends recommended Hotel Buenisimo and we couldn't have been at a better place for our honeymoon. In fact, we'd only booked one week of our 2-week Costa Rica trip at Buenisimo, but loved it so much that we extended our stay! We went in October which is in the "green season" and were lucky to get great weather--gorgeous warm sunny... More

We simply cannot thank Charlie, Denise and Eva enough for a fantastic week at Hotel Buenisimo. The peace and tranquility of their beautiful property was an incredible setting for a surf/beach vacation in Malpais. (Neema caught the waves of his LIFE!) Our casita overlooking the ocean had a simple (but perfect!) kitchen which was very helpful on our small budget,... More

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday at the end of August last year. We had the most amazing time, and are planning another trip back! The weather was beautiful and there was only one stormy night. We stayed in one of the casitas at the top of the hill that had an indescribable view. Every morning we hiked... More

4 adults and 1 child Thanksgiving 2012. There's nothing like it. All the other places just cannot compare to the hospitality and welcoming that the staff show the guests. It is paradise on earth, the colors were out of this world! Ryan rolls out the red carpet and can show you hidden treasures off the beaten path.

This was our 2nd trip to Hotel Buenisimo. We stayed in a casita this year and loved it!! Spacious, great view, and reasonably priced. The breakfast is outstanding, especially after a good surf session. Built in workout if you do not rent a car or 4 wheeler, which we did not mind at all. We felt very safe and comfortable.... More

Good little B&B. We stayed in the garden rooms which were very good value for a budget traveller. You have your own private room and bathroom and right next to the big living space where there is a pool table, chairs, hammocks and kitchen. It would cost the same to stay in a hostel but staying here its much nicer,... More

My wife and I just got back from Santa Teresa and we stayed at Buenisimo. We stayed in the casita which basically has a 180 degree view and a perfect afternoon/evening breeze that puts to you sleep in the two available hammocks. The hotel offers a healthy and filling breakfast which pretty much gets you through to dinner. You can... More
