Javi’s Hotel Buenos Aires is one of those places you don’t want to write a review about because you don’t want to share the magic. My husband and I stayed there for a week and it’s just paradise. The vibe is super relaxed and so warm and welcoming, Javi and Flo are doing an amazing job. The rooms are beautiful and clean, and nothing can compare to the view from each room’s hammock and/or chairs! It’s breathtaking and we also absolutely recommend to check out the sunset from the beautiful garden - just wow! The location is great and close to all amenities and restaurants, the beach is a 10 min walk max., but to be honest we didn’t want to leave there too often :) There is a restaurant down the stairs that serves breakfast and is also open in the evenings, the chef there is super nice and friendly and speaks to every guest in the mornings welcoming us! He is also an amazing cook - we spent a few evenings there and the dinner was fantastic. It is important to note that you should be prepared to walk quite the steep hill up when going to the hotel (or drive it of course) and also between the rooms and the restaurant/pool area. We loved it though, it was a nice workout every time :) all in all - thank you so much for having us there, we might come back and never leave again!!

We were three friends travelling together in Santa Teresa and hotel Buenos Aires was a beautiful place to stay in! The rooms and the whole yard was very clean and every room had a hammock in the front patio. Also the view was amazing! The hotel is situated on a hill so it was nice to watch the sunset away from the dusty main road. It was a bit of climbing to get to the hotel but it was good exercise and the playa Carmen was just down the hill. Supermarket and surf board rentals were availabe just near the hotel and the beach access. And what a friendly and helpfull owner couple, muchas gracias! The breakfast at the nearby restaurant was okay; it could've been more diverse and the service was quite slow at times. But all in all we would definitely recommend hotel Buenos Aires!

Absolutely book a trip here. Javi and Flo made us feel so at home. The view is magical it’s the best place in Santa Theresa to watch the sunset. Having an amazing breakfast included everyday is such a fantastic addition. And you’re walking distance to tons of fabulous restaurants. We were able to get up the hill with our very small rental car just fine. Javi is always around to refer you to local places and to make sure you’re having the best trip. He even took beautiful photos of my partner and I watching the sunset. It was absolutely one of our favorite stays and we look forward to coming back really soon. Also they have a very cute dog that made our trip even better.

Javi is a great host. Must stay here! Very clean and Javi is there to answer anything you need. It is a climb and great exercise but if you need stop half way and take a dip in pool it will rejuvenate you. It seems to attract a great clientele to have friendly evening and morning chats if you like. Highly recommend this place!

Perfect place to stay at to discover Santa Teresa.
Charming hotel located at a top of a hill (10min walk to the main beaches and city center) that offers the most incredible view !
The rooms are comfortable and have AC.
Our host Javi was very kind and helpful and knows the area perfectly.
You can enjoy the gorgeous pool a few steps down as well as the fancy restaurant.
The breakfast was stunning.
Thanks Javi and Flo we highly recommend this beautiful property.

My fiancé and I absolutely fell in love with this hidden gem of a place - we just checked out this morning and are already dreaming about coming back. Let's start with the basics: this was by far the cleanest place we stayed at during our trip which covered Jaco area, Manuel Antonio, Monteverde, Arenal, Rincon de la Vieja, Santa Teresa and Tamarindo area! The cleanest sheets, towels and the freshest smell to the place! We stayed at the bottom room with just a fan and found that we didn't need the AC which we didn't have. Our room was also very quiet.

Now about the heavens: the view from the place is beyond any words day and night. You can watch the mighty power of the ocean from birds view here. Even at night, I couldn't get enough of the sound of the crashing waves and it was magical to actually see the waves crashing in the moonlight!

The host Javier must be just the coolest person in Santa Teresa - he and his girlfriend go out of their way to make your stay memorable!

Finally, the pool area and the restaurant are amazing! We only tried the restaurant for breakfast but we can say that it was delicious and the service was great. And the pool was so clean, refreshing and peaceful.

I can't wait to be back and will recommend this place to all my friends and family. We even thought it would make for a cool small venue for an intimate wedding! You won't be disappointed!

I was very impressed by the reviews here, and decided to give Hotel Buenos Aires a try.
And well, the reviews did not lie.

The hotel to us was the definition of Pura Vida. A completely magical view, pleasant sounds and good people provided a perfect atmosphere for our 4 day stay. Although the amenities may not be as luxurious as the 5-star resorts our parents used to drag us to, this place makes up for that (and even more) in charm and vibes. Also, the rooms are clean and we found nothing to complain about. Although there is no safe for valuables (which I would normally consider a must) we had no concerns over safety of our items here, and we generally felt very secure. The hotel restaurant is good, and we found that the prices were very fair.

Having read some reviews, we were a bit scared of the steep hill from the road/beach up to the hotel. Several people had recommended ATVs or 4x4s to climb it, but honestly we didn't find it to be a big problem. There is quite a climb from the bottom to the top, and we did manage to lose our breath every time, but still we managed to go up and down +6 times every day without a problem.

Most importantly: Javi, the owner, is a completely genuine and extremely nice and helpful guy - if only all hotels had a guy like that...!

I dont think we have ever experienced such great value for money, do yourself a favour and stay here at least a couple of days if you are ever in Santa Teresa.

Extremely well welcomed by the owner Javier and his wife! A little nest of paradise with the most astonishing view on the ocean of Santa Teresa. The perfect place to enjoy a sunset wow view! The room is large and clean, same for the bathroom. The pool is peace and surounded by many animals (chipmunk, birds...). The breakfast is very good : coffee, fresh fruits, watermelon/pineapple juice, french toast. In love with this place. Thank you Javier
