The views from this location are extraordinary. The breakfast is extravagant. The rooms are pristine. The serenity, peace and quiet was sublime. Everything was so perfect I was almost afraid to touch anything. Walk 10 minutes to the gelato place which is as good as anywhere in Italy.

The Las Lajas beach is famous for its 20 km of black sand. Finca Buena Vista is outside of the actual town (which is not on the beach) and, as the name Finca suggests, it is in the countryside. The rooms have a patio that overlooks a quiet, very pleasant area. The most attractive aspect is the quiet during the... More

This was our third time staying at Finca Buena Vista. My favorite thing is sitting on the patio and looking out over the countryside. The pool is very nice, the rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is excellent. The owners are very hospitable, I would recommend it to anyone.

I loved everything about this place: First, its location close to the town and a 10min ride to the beach but with a beautiful view over lush mountains and a great night sky! Laying in the pool and watching stars is amazing! Secondly, the hotel. It's very small and run by a lovely couple who make sure that every guest... More

This is a great little B+B in the countryside. The place is relatively new, so the rooms are clean, bright and secure. Wifi works well, but our TV did not work. Local channels only in any case. The owners speak German , Spanish and English. The breakfast is outstanding and one of the best we had on our trip! They... More

Well.... There Are a Few experiences in Life's Adventures that are worth doing twice. And La Finca Buena Vista has been such a thing for me. I had a rough visit to Las Lajas beach 5 years ago, we caught a holiday! LOUD beach scene lasted for days on end. Luckily there was a bar owner who suggested a retreat... More

The finca and it's owners as well as the employee and the dog are just wonderful. One can see that this was established because Berit and Uwe love what they do and do it because they really want to. The finca offers spacious, perfectly clean rooms with a nice view that can be enjoyed during breakfast. The pool offers the... More

We stayed at Finca Buena Vista in December 2014, over the Christmas days. And what can I say? Our stay was fantastic. The German owners, a couple named Uwe and Berrit, gave us a warm welcome, accompanied by their adorable dog Balu. The rooms are clean and spacious with a huge bathroom and an own patio each with an awesome... More

Finca Buena vista was a really nice accommodation. A bit far away and quite hot but they have done well tinting the windows of the rooms... They have AC as well and a small pool for dipping. Harder piece of land to work with. They have done good. Lovely breakfast and friendly maid!
