We stayed 3 nights at Hotel Buena Vista prior to our flight home to the UK after 70 days touring Central Amercia. It is located about 5 miles from the airport and a shuttle was included in the room rate and we were transported to and from the airport with ease. Being some 4000 metres high the climate was cool with less humidity and we enjoyed our stay. Our room (25) was a twin Queen with a small balcony which gave us a fantastic "vista" of the valley and San Jose. The restaurant had a varied menu, and the meals were of a good quality and freshly made, there was also a small bar area.
There was a small swimming pool which was at a ‘refreshing’ temperature whilst we visited, although we were visiting in the rainy season! We were blessed with sunny dry days during our stay though. The wifi was usually very good but did depend on the number of guests’ devices being used.
There were several interesting tours available from the hotel but we were here just to chill before our return home so did not undertake any so cannot comment.
This is certainly a hotel we would return to and we would like to thank the owner, Ed for taking the trouble of chatting to us several times during our stay and all of his wonderful staff who were always courteous and helpful and a great asset to the hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The comment ofter heard in this hotel is, "We feel like we are at home." This is exactly the impression the management and staff of the Buena Vista strive to create. We are high on the summit of a mountain with a climate of eternal spring yet only fifteen minutes drive from the International Airport below. We will pick you up there and show you the wonders of this exotic country. ... more less
