Hotel Buena Vista is an excellent hotel with really awesome service. Their restaurant closes at 9 pm, but since my flight was arriving at 9:30 pm, they sent their menu card with the shuttle driver so I could order my dinner and have it ready as soon as I checked in. I have never experienced this kind of personal service. The hotel is clean, and the staff is very friendly. We had two rooms with balconies that overlooked their garden and had a mangnificient view of the city. Breakfast was nice (bread and fruits), but we had to order other entrees to really have a filling breakfast.
The only downside might be that the hotel is around 20 mins drive from SJO airport, but it didn't matter to us since we were using this as a base to drive to Poas volcano and La Paz Waterfall Gardens before driving to Arenal.
I would highly recommend this hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The comment ofter heard in this hotel is, "We feel like we are at home." This is exactly the impression the management and staff of the Buena Vista strive to create. We are high on the summit of a mountain with a climate of eternal spring yet only fifteen minutes drive from the International Airport below. We will pick you up there and show you the wonders of this exotic country. ... more less
