We stopped for two nights at this hotel during our honeymoon, both times we were catching flights the next morning.
The hotel is very pretty, set in the mountains, with a terrific view. We stayed in the "SunDeck Suite" and the Villa.
The rooms were clean, and the hotel was very nice. But the room was not as promised, and had absolutely no view of the Sunset ... in fact, the sunset on the otherside of the hotel. This was the only reason we picked this room...quite disappointing.
We were very, very disappointed with the hospitality of the front desk - they were not helpful, and it seemed like we were disturbing them every time we had a questions or needed something. One at least 3 occasions, they were huddled in the back room and came out looking quite annoyed that we needed their help.
We did laundry there - 3 items - 2 pairs of pants and shirt - the cost was $13 US.... you can make your own call on that. I will say that it was my mistake, as I had thought I read the prices for a load of laundry...I didn't think it would cost the total price of one of the pairs of shorts to wash three pieces of clothing
Breakfast - couples slices of toast, fruit on a plate and some coffee. I expected a little more considering the cost. at least a continental buffet...not a tiny plate
The Villa is gorgeous, the coffee and banana plants pretty cool, the pool looked very nice as well.
- 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
