We had such an amazing time at Buena Vista Luxury Villas/Tulemar. Our unit had everything we needed and included a beautiful view of the mountains and ocean. The macaws and toucans made their daily debut as the sun came up right off our deck. Everyone on staff treated us like royalty! Gary made sure our journeys were safe and an... More

Every single person I encountered here was so incredibly friendly and helpful. Gary was our concierge who helped us book tours and transportation whenever we asked, day or night. He had excellent recommendations for restaurants and places to go. The restaurant on the property was great. Manny was our server almost every time we went. He was so friendly and... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Buena Vista in June. The location was fantastic - it felt as though we were in a private tree-top hideaway. The view of the ocean was exceptional, especially watching the storms roll in from the Pacific. The amenities were perfect: AC, fridge, clean linens, good housekeeping, strong water pressure. Other amenities such as... More

If you are looking for a luxurious "urban" rain forest vacation where you have all the benefits of the rain forest with the City just a few minutes away, I can't imagine a better place than Buena Vista. The villa we had was a 2-bedroom split level condo that is as nice as my house - and I have a... More

We had a fantastic time at the Buena Vista Villas. The staff were amazing! Our concierge Fernanda was tremendous! David the Beach Manager helped my daughter with a jelly fish sting. All of the bartenders and restaurant staff, drivers and our cleaners Juan and Christian were so friendly. All the staff deserve special recognition. A Resort is only as good... More

First time to Costa Rica and can't wait to return. Our family of 4...2 kids age 22 and 20 stayed in a 2 bedroom villa next to family pool. Our villa was huge ( could've fit more family/friends) and was so convenient to pool, beach and main road where we would just walk to restaraunts and stores. The favorite aspect... More

My husband and I stayed at Buena Vista Luxury Villas for our honeymoon and it was all that we could ever ask for and more! The service was amazing!! Alex, our concierge, was the BEST. His recommendations were perfect and he was available whenever we needed him, without being too intrusive. The accommodations were very modern, spotlessly clean and well... More

This was truly a wonderful experience for our family. We usually travel to Hawaii for some fun in the sun but this took us by surprise. Best way for me to describe it is like being in Hawaii with a private zoo off our balcony. We saw monkeys, iguanas, snakes, birds, sloths and many more. This was our first trip... More

Beautiful vistas, well-tended property, friendly and accommodating staff. Be aware when making reservations that some properties are difficult to reach: many stairs and steep inclines without railings. Our 3-generation group had a lovely well-equipped house with three bedrooms, but one of the bedrooms was 63 steps below the living area. The concierge, Michael, contacted our agent at Costa Rica Expeditions... More

We are a family of four, kids 11 (boy) and 9 (girl). This was our first time traveling out of the country! Maria Fernanda was our online concierge and was fantastic!
