We stayed here for just one night when we arrived in San Juan before heading to Arenal the next morning. It was a well maintained classy hotel on top of the hill overlooking San Juan. Nice coffee trail starts from the door. The room was average with 2 double beds but was clean and the beds were comfortable. There was a nice garden around the hotel with great views over San Juan and a pool area but the pool was very small and did not function. The hotel is situated far from the city center and rooms were very quiet, but there was nothing around in a walking distance. The only dinner place around is hotel's restaurant. The food was good but clearly overpriced. The staff was great and friendly. Overall expression was good and would stay here again.
- 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
