Buenos Aires has to have the most beautiful of all locations in Santa Teresa. It has stunning views and is only short walk up the hill from the main road. The rooms were extremely clean, comfortable, ensuit and perfect for our needs. The top floor ones have AC and a bigger view from the balcony, the ground floor ones have fans as AC is not necessary but the balcony is swapped with a hammock - the best way to chill & escape the afternoon sun.
What really makes this place is the owner Javi and his partner Flo. They run the place hands on with no outside staff meaning it's a very personal experience, extremely safe but above all fun! Javi was charming, always wanting to help out on advice, directions and how to book various things (surf lessons, paddle boarding, horse riding etc) but more so just a great guy to chat too and hang out with. It felt more like being asked to stay and hang out in their house than it did the formalities of a hotel. We loved it, it really reflected the Santa Teresa vibe.
Javi used to run the restaurant a 2minute walk down the hill which is now run by someone else but on his land. The food here is extremely good and fresh and the restaurant has beautiful views & a laid back feel but most importantly - the swimming pool here is exclusively for the use of Buenos Aires guests. We spent a lot of time hanging here when it was too hot to be anywhere else. This alone makes Buenos Aires THE place to stay!
We loved it. Could'nt fault it an any single way.
Thank you Javi, we will be back!
