We had a flight back to the states early in the morning and we could have booked a room close to the airport along with all the business travelers in a "could-be-anywhere" hotel. But, we decided to enjoy the services of a "close to the airport" hotel in a hotel that is about 25 minutes up the hill in the coffee plantations. They offer free transportation to the airport, breakfast, lunch and dinner. They have a wonderful view of the city which can be seen from the hotel and the short stroll through the coffee plantation.
I highly recommend this hotel as a home base or first/last place before you head onto other locations. The staff is friendly and accommodating.
With that said, the hotel is not really within walking distance to any great restaurants or general “action”. It is in the hills with a great view in a relaxing setting!!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The comment ofter heard in this hotel is, "We feel like we are at home." This is exactly the impression the management and staff of the Buena Vista strive to create. We are high on the summit of a mountain with a climate of eternal spring yet only fifteen minutes drive from the International Airport below. We will pick you up there and show you the wonders of this exotic country. ... more less
