Spent six nights here, had a great time. Javi and Flo are great hosts, the rooms are very clean and comfortable, the hotel has fantastic views and is a short walk into town. It is up a pretty steep hill so be sure to bring shoes with treads in case it rains! Be sure to have breakfast at the restaurant,...

I went to Hotel Buenos Aires last November and it was beautiful. This was an incredible time of year with lots of beautiful vegetation. Having seen many other parts of this country, Hotel Buenos Aires, no doubt offers the best views. The owners, Javi and Flo were very welcoming, friendly, and made my family and I feel right at home!

We visited on our bicycle last year and staying with Javi was one of the highlights of our trip! He thought we were lost and welcomed us right away - we were glad to find ourselves at his hotel. Hotel Buenos Aires is situated at the top of a very steep hill, but the hike up is completely worth it...

Outstanding place. The owner made us feel welcome and the rooms were clean and extremely comfortable. The cost of the rooms were very reasonable. The only issue was the dirt road going up the hill needs to be better maintained. The hotel had beautiful views and sunsets!!

The view is incredible! It's on a small hill and very accessible, it has the best view and you can watch beautiful sunsets. Javier is amazing, he's been the best host in the world. He made our stay amazing (just to warn you, he's a really good backgammon player). The room is big and spacious. I wouldn't stay anywhere else...

Our room was big, modern and clean, with a private bathroom. There are a balcony with tables and chairs plus another common outdoor area with hammock, chairs etc. There is a restaurant just a 2 min walk from the hotel, which offers very delicious breakfast and dinner. The Hotel has a very good location with only 5-10 minutes walk to...

I stayed here for one week and can't fault the place. The rooms are simple but immaculately clean. Close to the main Santa Teresa / Mal Pais road but far enough away to avoid the dust and the traffic. Highly recommended!

Hotel Buenos Aires has the best view around, and it's not close. The pool was very comfortable as well. Javier was an incredibly gracious host, I cannot say enough nice things about him and his hotel. We would be excited to stay there again. As other reviews have stated, you simply don't get the best view in the region without...

My husband and I stayed here for our 5 year wedding Anni it's just up the hill from the restaurant Brisas del Mar which is amazing. Waking up here is nothing short of spectacular, there's no need for a surf report app just wake up and walk out to the cliff overlooking the pacific, this was our favorite place in...

The Javier and Flo were great. The accommodations were very good. Great views. Very quiet and extremely clean. Great prices and close to town. But far enough away from the dust in town. The pool and restaurant was very nice. What ever info you needed he had it.
