Clean, well managed. The staff always friendly and helpful. We stayed three times, using it as a base as we travelled around Costa Rica; we had the same room each time, and we could store our luggage for free between trips. There were good at sorting travel to and from the airport and other destinations.
We were recommended local attractions (coffee plantation tour - very good! After a few coffee and coffee liquor tastings too many we were a bit giggly all evening!) The pool is small but clean and warm, with a gorgeous view out across the countryside! We bemused the staff by swimming in the middle of tropical downpour - then rescued us with a couple of tequilas, "you might be needing these" as we walked through the streaming rain to the hatch at the bar...
The food was Costa Rican touristy - but good.
Very good place to stay!
- 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
