Great GREAT visit! Two things to note. First, this staff is the friendliest I have encountered in many years and many continents of travel. Michael (concierge), Mannfred, David and Juan stand out, but the whole gang makes you smile. Second, the layout of this large property, and the way the rooms, villas and bungalows are privately situated in the lush... More

Jay and Buena Vista Villas is truly amazing. Being up on a hillside overlooking the beautiful landscape is surreal. You can see and hear the ocean as well as be surrounded by forest and wildlife. Jay was more than helpful from the start. What a kind soul he is and wonderful company. I enjoyed every moment of my stay and... More

First a huge shout out to the dynamic duo-... More

Spent a full week here in February of 2014, and it was beautiful. The room was quite nice, and had a lovely breeze coming through, and a balcony with a hammock. Set the tone for a fantastic trip. Jay and Penny were so kind and welcoming. Jay rented us surfboards, and was very helpful in learning the local spots, making... More

I loved the solitude of this place. The bed was the best I've slept on while traveling here in Costa Rica. The service was excellent and Jay and Penny were both very helpful. Only trouble was wifi signal strength. The Hammocks and trails around the property were the best.

Unfortunately I am the typical American who suffers a bit without his air conditioning. Despite assurancews about mountainside breezes, the reality is that the rooms about ready very warm through much of the day.
