only one word: exellent!
casa buenavista is one of the best place to stay in quiet, with a very "friendly" attendance, and in the morning, the gorgeus breakfast home made, will shock you...
anymore playa carrillo is one of the beautifull beach in guanacaste.

VERY nice B & B with the most charming owners. Well decorated clean rooms with the most FANTASTIC breakfast every morning in the breakfast area. 2 different breads with home made marmalade. Fresh fruit, and a warm smile serving it! Nice little gardens with lots of wildlife. Fiorenzo and Cinzia were so friendly and helpful with anything we needed. Can't wait to stay here again. Short walk/drive to the worlds most beautiful beach! A bargain at any price!

From the moment my travel companion and I arrived at Casa Buenavista Bed & Breakfast, we knew we had found an exceptional place to stay in Playa Carrillo. Based on the photos we had seen on the Internet, we were pretty confident this B&B was beautiful, but we couldn't have been more happily surprised when we arrived. Because Casa Buenavista only has 2 rooms for rent, my friend and I were the only guests all weekend, and we couldn't have felt more pampered by our gorgeous, very comfortable, and beautifully decorated private rooms that each included a private bath, AC, ceiling fan, and patio area. Owners Cinzia and Fiorenzo Guindani are a very talented, warm, and welcoming couple who have created a tranquil oasis for travelers to Playa Carrillo. Their property is gorgeously landscaped, and the included breakfast is a full course of fresh fruit, breads, muffins, jams, and coffee (all freshly prepared by Cinzia!). Listening to birds while enjoying Cinzia's scrumptious breakfast treats in this B&B's outdoor eating area couldn't have been a more relaxing way to start each day. Cinzia and Fiorenzo were happy to help us make our plans for each day, and they let me know that their computer and WiFi network is available to all guests throughout the day. If you have the chance to travel to Playa Carrillo, and you'd like to stay in a very affordable, extremely comfortable B&B that is just a 5-minute walk from the beach and nearby restaurants, you should definitely make reservations at Casa Buenavista Bed and Breakfast.

Room Tip: Both rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. The room located in the lower part of the property has a larger patio area and more shade.

My boyfriend and I traveled to Costa Rica for 3 weeks, in June, and we absolutely fell in love with Casa Buenavista and its owners! We were initially supposed to stay only 2 nights, but ended up staying an extra night because we loved it so much! It's a little quiet paradise in the mountains owned by a really nice and charming couple from Italy. The place is gorgeous, surrounded by a beautiful garden and just up the hill from the Pacific ocean and an amazing private beach called Playa Carillo. This beach is by far prettier and more private then Samara beach. Playa Carillo is the perfect place to hang out all day, under the sun... And then at night, you're only a 5 min drive away from Samara and all its groovy little bars and restaurants. There's an Argentinian steak house that Cinzia and Florenzo recommended us, that's literally around teh bloc from the B&B that you absolutely have to try. I can't seem to remember the name of the place, but just ask Cinzia and she'll gladly tell you where to go.

Also, the daily breakfast cooked by Cinzia is absolutely incredible! Really, it's that good! She makes her own bread, marmalade, cakes, muffins, etc. It's delicious! My boyfriend is still talking about the food to this day :)

Go to this place, you'll fall in love too!

Our stay at casa buenavista was beautiful. The room was very nice, big and clean. The breakfast, especially because it was self made was awesome. We really enjoyed staying at Cinzia & Fiorenzo house. The beach is just a few minutes from the b&b and just beautiful. We've been there at off season, so we had the beach just for ourself. Carrillo is a sweet little village, with all you need. It was also very easy to get there. You just take a bus from San Jose, for 7$... Overall is was one of our nicest holidays and we would live to come back some day.
