We were only in Alajuela for one night, but our experience made us want to stay longer. The hotel had great views of San Jose and Alajuela and is only 15 mins from the airport. We met the owner and he was very helpful and accomodating. The room was beautiful, very Spanish-like. Not too much in the surrounding area but it is easy to get around. Food at the hotel was great, and the bed was the comfiest we had for the whole trip. Free shuttle to the airport which was great! They also provide tours that you can do in the surrounding attractions (which unfortunately we did not get to do). There is a small coffee trail that you can take around the property which was nice. We didn't stay in them, but they have villas on the property which looked magnificent, and had stunning views to the valley below. You can see Poas volcano from the front of the hotel as well. There is a small pool in the back which was nice as well.
We would definitely stay here again if we go back.
- 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
