I can not even begin to convey how wonderful our experience at Buena Vista Villas was!! The facilities are absolutely beautiful with spectacular views of the beach as well as the rainforest. The rooms were perfectly maintained and cleaned. The beds were more comfortable than the bed I have in my own home. The beach was beautiful. The pools were awesome. But as much as I have to give credit for the facilities, I have to give even more to the staff. Our concierge was Danny. He went above and beyond EVERY expectation in making sure my family and I were comfortable. And after I got injured (due to my own clumsiness), he even went more out of his way. He went to town for me to buy me supplies for my injury after he was off of duty! And the entire staff did the same to make sure my family was taken care of!! This was DEFINITELY not our last visit to Buena Vista Villas!!

Room Tip: I had access to 3 different rooms during my stay. All of them were wonderful, but 305 had the most spectacular view!!

We just got home from the most amazing vacation we have ever been on thanks to the amazing staff at the Buena Vista Hotel! Danny, our concierge was so helpful and welcoming. The property is amazing and the villas are like individual tree houses….simply amazing. David at the beach each day was so sweet to us and helped us with kayaking. Restaurants were so close to the hotel so we could walk at night which was very convenient. We were so happy with this resort and can NOT WAIT to come back to visit again! I HIGHLY recommend this resort!

Room Tip: Request one of the villas so you have a view of the water!

Thank you 508kate! We too look forward to your return! Buena Vista is fortunate to be centrally located in terms of restaurants, bars and shops. Glad you enjoyed the numerous free activities at the beach and David is a master at launching kayaks which is sometimes needed to get past the surf- Thanks for the review- Pura vida, Chris

Andreas did a great job showing the family the property and being available to help us with activities on and off the property. It was stress free and wonderful. We actually used the beach and pools more than outside activities because we were at the end of our "active" vacation.

Thank you Chris I’m glad to hear we provided the perfect end to your “active” vacation! It is not uncommon for guests to the Manuel Antonio area to simply stay and never leave our resort after all it has a lot to offer: individual units, secluded beach numerous hidden pools and great bars and restaurant! Thanks for staying with us and for the review! Pura Vida, Chris

Our family of six stayed in Buena Vista Casas May 28-31, 2014. The property is gorgeous. Adjacent to Manuel Antonio National Park, BVC has its own private beach and nature trails. We was monkeys every day. The house we stayed in was terrific, with decks and a hot tub, and we happened to have the family pool just outside our door. The staff was superb. We interacted with Orlando, Mauricio, and Brian in the front office, as well as Jose in the restaurant, and they could not have been more helpful. Late May was a good time to go, as the resort was not very crowded, and we actually enjoyed the afternoon (or evening) rain showers. Highly recommend this property.

Kelly thank you for the review. FYI Buena Vista Luxury Villas BVLV is not right next to the park but a very short bus or cab or car ride away. The Park is actually adjacent to the public beach. Glad to hear you enjoyed our Premium Villa. The rainy season is similar to the rain you see in the Caribean; so you normally have nice mornings and early to midafternoons and then you can get rain. Thanks again, Pura Vida, Chris

This place is beautiful with amazing views. Walking to great bars and restaurants is easy. The private beach is beautiful and convenient. The staff was friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Danny and Daniela, our concierge and bartender, who made our stay wonderful.
