Friends recommended Hotel Buenisimo and we couldn't have been at a better place for our honeymoon. In fact, we'd only booked one week of our 2-week Costa Rica trip at Buenisimo, but loved it so much that we extended our stay! We went in October which is in the "green season" and were lucky to get great weather--gorgeous warm sunny days and spectacular thunderstorms after dark. Denise and Charlie are the best hosts and we felt right at home.
We stayed in the orange casita, which was exactly what we wanted. The casitas are tucked into the side of the mountain overlooking the ocean, surrounded by jungle. They have a wooden rustic feel, round design, great artsy decor, good vibes. Each cabin has a basic kitchen so you can cook for yourselves, a nice washroom with hot water shower and good pressure (a luxury in CR), also an outdoor shower to get the salt and sand off after hitting the beach. There's AC or you can open all the windows--there are screens to keep the mosquitos out. Maintenance issues are dealt with right away (we mentionned a tap problem and next time we went to our room it had been replaced). It was amazing being able to slow down and get away from city life, laying in hammocks on the deck of our casita and watching monkeys in the nearby trees, playing Tico-rules pool in the Rancho (common-room) which is also where you get wi-fi, surfing most every day (we rented boards from Charlie), meeting lovely people, and just enjoying the good life.
WE LOVED OUR TIME AT BUENISIMO! Thanks again Charlie and Denise! XOXO from Toronto
