We are in the middle of a four night stay during Thanksgiving in 2020. This is obviously in the middle of COVID-19. The hotel is not that busy so we feel pretty safe here as we haven’t seen many other hotel guests. The highlights are probably the incredible location of being right on the beach and incredible wildlife that we have seen in just a couple of days. Even though we were thrilled to see sloths in Manuel Antonio Park through a massive scope, on our beach of the hotel we saw two sloths including one that was probably about 30 or 40 feet above our heads in the tree. And when we checked in we are greeted by a beautiful white face capuchin monkey on our terrace. We are staying in room 807 and the terrace has a unblocked view of the jungle and canopy which is wonderful. The room is a decent size for a family of four with two double beds—it was a junior suite. The room has everything we needed—a small refrigerator, microwave, plates and utensils. And the entire staff is so friendly and warm. And price super reasonable for the location and wildlife. Highly recommended.

My friend and I just stayed here for two nights and can not say enough good things about Buena Vista Beach club- upon checking in we were given a quick tour and personally introduced to all of the fantastic team members. This place is right on the most beautiful beach in the world- the chairs and umbrellas are provided- with drink and food service on the beach- the rooms are spotless and beds super comfortable- classic margaritas are the best! And the staff all constantly go above and beyond to ensure you are having a great experience- do not hesitate to book- you will love it!!!

We loved this hotel and did not want to leave! Great location right on the beach with beautiful views. The staff was friendly and accommodating and drinks and food were reasonably priced. We saw monkeys while laying on the beach and it wasn’t overcrowded.

Es un hotel muy pequeño (8 habitaciones), no ofrece amenidades ni incluye el desayuno. Pero está justo frente al mar. Es silencioso, tranquilo; durante todo el día y noche escuchas el oleaje del mar... Es el lugar ideal para despejar mente y alma. It is a small hotel (8 rooms), without amenities and the breakfast is not included, but you can buy it and is good. The hotel is located in front of the sea, so, during day and night you are listening the waves... It is a good place to relax and rest your mind.

Nice hotel right on the beach. Clean, updated room. Huge balcony facing the ocean. Beach side restaurant and tiki bar. Staff was so nice. Food at restaurant was delicious. The day we checked out we were going snorkeling in the morning and asked if we could check out later than the usual check out time so we could take showers before we hit the road and they gladly accommodated us. Really appreciated that!
