We stayed for our first 2 nights in Costa Rica at the Buena Vista. It is only a 15 minute drive from the international airport but is out of the town up in the hills surrounded by a coffee plantation and has lovely gardens and a coffee trail which can be explored. The staff were very helpful and friendly, the room we had was a good size and the wifi worked well. The food was good, I did think the "included" breakfast was a bit light - we had a fruit platter and toast, juice and tea or coffee. We had dinner there and it was good. The hotel is conveniently situated to visit the Poas Volcano and the la Paz Waterfall Gardens and if you don't have your own transport they run tours. There is a small convenience store just 100 metres from the gates of the hotel so you can buy things like bottled water and snacks.
- 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
