The rooms have a view of the ocean, the bar and grill provides amazing foid and beach-y drinks, and it is within walking distance of Manuel Antonio Nacionales Parques. The water is unbelievably warm, the staff so friendly and helpful and tge concierge is great in obtaining the covid-test required to enter back into the U S, i will say this property attracts younger patrons as well as provides non-stop photo opportunities of local fauna, i.e. red macaws, capucchin monkeys, orange-backed spider monkeys and howlers. They also had a resident sloth; how could you go wrong!?

This place was great! The staff was so friendly, the vibe is chill and fun! The food is good, the drinks are good, the room is good... I have nothing bad to say! We would stay here again. I guess the only thing I could say is that if you are looking for crazy night life or excitement (we were not) this might not be the place. It was chill and relaxing, our kids would have been bored, but they were at home with grandma! One thing that they should correct- they don't have any paddle boards, boogie boards or ocean toys to use. We had to pay $10 for boogie boards... kind of a bummer. The location of this place was GREAT, we could walk to town (Manuel Antonio) for meals or eat at the hotel - both great options!

This hotel is right on the beach, has a terrific restaurant, and excellent staff. It’s far enough from the craziness closer to the park entrance, but not so far to be annoying. While at the hotel itself i saw sloths, toucan, capuchin monkeys, and other great wildlife.

We stayed here for 4 days with another couple and had an amazing time! The rooms were great, food was fantastic, great service, and it’s located right on an amazing beach. The room we stayed in had a wonderful little balcony to enjoy coffee or watch the rain. The beach was by far one of our favorites - well maintained with plenty of sun or shade options. Andre took care of us most every day on the beach and always made sure we had everything we needed, including drinks, food, and even laughs. Simon took care of us in the evenings and was fantastic! Would stay here again in a heart beat!

What a jewel! Buena Vista is a small boutique hotel with great location and the best staff ever. The hotel is right on the beach (no steps to negotiate) with an amazing restaurant and bar and service on the beach. Our room (the suite) was spacious and extremely clean and yes, the monkeys were always right outside our balcony. The best part of Buena Vista, however is the people that work there. We stayed a week and felt like we left with a host of new friends. Simon, Aundrey, Sabrina, Gabi, Ingrid (all of them) took care of our every need from the moment we checked in to booking our tours and scheduling our Covid test for our return to the States. The service at the restaurant and bar was always outstanding as were the food and drinks they served. I highly recommend Buena Vista - we will be back!
