We stayed here on a Headwater trip. This is a nice hotel with lovely views over the Central Valley of Costa Rica - our rooms did not have spectacular views but were still good quality with all necessary facilities. Good food. A nice first stop in Costa Rica up above the cities. Small but nice pool.

Room Tip: If you want the good views then you will need to upgrade to one of the balcony rooms.

... well, the best i have stayed in !
The hotel is easy to find (which is a real plus in Costa Rica), on the road to the Poas volcano and close to the international airport (~ 20 mins).
Great view on the central valley, beautiful gardens, nice little pool, wifi, postal service, coffee and quality souvenir shop, tourist infos, very good restaurant...
But their best asset is their staff !!! Especially Harlem and Coco... These guys there are really friendly, professional and helpful... They went the extra mile for me and made my last couple of days in Costa Rica so much easier !! Thank you guys !!

Just got back from a great stay in Costa Rica! Stayed 3 nights at Hotel Buena Vista on the front end of our trip and 1 night at the end. it was super easy to get to BV from the airport, which was great. The complimentary shuttle was much appreciated! We stayed in a deluxe balcony room and it was great. Very clean and comfortable. The view was beautiful. We went zip lining at Colinas de Poas (only about 15 minutes away) and also visited Poas volcano.
Everyone we met at the Hotel Buena Vista was so nice and helpful. Harlen was amazing! Was great with his recommendations and made the kids amazing virgin pina coladas. They were thrilled!!
We would stay there again, for sure!!

Very helpful and efficient. Beautiful place. Very helpful in getting to the airport !
Staff was friendly and helpful. Restaurant was enjoyable. We were able to take one last "bird-walk" on the nice "Coffee Trail before the sun went down.
Thanks to everyone there !
