These guys are set on a prime location in Santa Teresa/Malpais area. You are sitting on top of a cliff with a view of the ocean and town right below your feet. Pretty relaxing vibe, which after 12 days travelling around Costa Rica, were very welcoming to my wife and I. Initially we were planning a 2 day stay, but after one day we decided to go for 6.

Room Tip: First level rooms have hammocks, which in my opinion are a plus. The difference is that they have no AC, only fans. However, fans did the job for me...

There isn't a better place to view the sunsets over the entire town and beach. 180+ degree view of white water, checking the surf each morning is easy from this perfect view. Javier is a gracious, knowledgeable host and Flo keeps the entire hotel spotless (and i do mean spotless!) with room service each morning. This place is clean, completely safe/secure and away from the dusty roads yet only a 5 min walk down the hill to the beaches and shops. Rooms are either a/c or fan. All with locking doors, hot showers and mini fridge/stocked bar. There is also a pool for lounging or cooling off.

This is by far the best hotel/host in all of Mal Pais/ST. The view is incredible!!!! The hosts are like you best friends.

Room Tip: You wont be needing hot water showers ;) Close your window coverings in the afternoon to keep the sun out.

We spent two weeks in Costa Rica over Xmas and New Years and the 4 nights at Hotel Buenos Aires were one of the highlights. It is a short (but strenuous) walk up the hill and close to everything in town and the beach, Buenos Aires also lays claim to the best sunset views, a great pool and an amazing restaurant. It is also next door to Horizon Yoga, so very convenient for drop in yoga. Javier was an amazing host, and was extremely nice and helpful.

Unfortunately we could only stay for 2 days on our whirlwind trip through the pacific coast but even so, those two days left a lasting impression. The beach that you can see from the overlook is exceptional and a quick walk. We spent both of our days there. The room was comfortable and we only needed a fan to sleep peacefully. Our first night we did notice two HUGE spiders but my boyfriend quickly disposed of those. We ate at the adjacent restaurant one night and it was one of our favorite meals of the entire trip. We didn't have reservations but they squeezed us in (note: closed on mondays). The view of the sunset can't really be put into words so I took a million pictures instead. All-in-all, I loved it. One more quick note, if driving, you definitely need 4-wheel drive to get up there.

What an amazing view! We arrived around sunset and immediately enjoyed a fresh Imperial on the 'terrace'. After enjoying the sunset, Javier took the time to have a chat with us and he gave us some good tips for dinner.

The hotel is great to enjoy the ocean view, relaxing atmosphere,... especially if you like to surf (we're not surfers, but I guess the other guests were).

Maybe one small disadvantage: the hard mattress.

But I still recommend everyone to book one or more nights at Buenos Aires!
