It takes an hour to get to attractions like Barva Volcano and Poás Volcano, where you can go hiking and bird watching. Poás Volcano is an active volcano, but there’s an extinct crater where you can see a blue-green lake. In just 30 minutes you can get to the Doka Coffee Estate, and try some of the unparalleled coffee that grows in Costa Rica’s tropical climate.

All of the rooms in Hotel Buena Vista have desks and wardrobes where you can store your clothes. Rooms here come with cozy, tropical decorations and flatscreen TVs. Each room has a private bathroom where you’ll have access to hair dryers and premium bath products. Guests can access free Wi-Fi on the grounds of the hotel.

The dining room has a high ceiling and decorative butterflies on the wall. Quetzal Grille serves typical Costa Rican food, which is prepared with fresh local produce. Your stay comes with a continental breakfast that includes tropical fruit.

Guests can unwind in the communal sitting area, and browse the gift shop on the grounds. You can go swimming in the pool, which is surrounded by lovely plants on the landscaped grounds.

Feedback from Travelers

This was a great start to our trip. The hotel staff were friendly and the food was good. There was just enough nature onsite to keep our kids occupied.

Amazing amazing views. Villa 2 was spectacular! The people were extremely friendly and helpful, especially the servers at the restaurant. Everyone was super friendly.

LOVED this little place! I think we counted 17 rooms. We were met with a freshly squeezed OJ concoction (delicious) and whisked to our room. Very comfortable bed, plenty of hot water, great view of the city below, excellent food in the dining room - not one thing to complain about! A very, very nice place to stay.

"This was the best trip our family ever had. We got exactly what we asked for, except the hotels were much better than we expected. I’ve never felt so satisfied and cared for."
