Beautiful beach hotel!
This quaint little place is right on the beach and the views are amazing. They have a great tiki bar outside and two small restaurants. The hotel staff was friendly and helped with everything including booking excursions. I would definitely recommend this place!

An Absolute Diamond on the Beach
Great 5 day stay , Kind and hospitable staff , rooms on a scale of 1 to 10 , 10 being best I rated them at a 9.5 our beds where serta mattress the air conditioning was a mini split system providing ice cold room temps . The part that really amazed me was the quality and taste of the food kudos to the chefs . Looking forward to my return and having some Pura Vida at the Buena Vista Beach Villas .

A great find
This was a Great place to stay right by a beach with a great vibe. The food was excellent and the bar is a fun place that will deliver your drink right to the beach. Though that is only 100 yards away. The staff were cool, friendly, and open. I will stay here again. Great value. Better than a resort for me

Great stay
The overall stay was very pleasant. We arrived in May 2019 and the beach was beautiful. The water was warm but maybe a little rough but made for some fun times in the sea. The beach was generally quiet with plenty of space for yourself. The rooms were large and comfortable. We were in no 800 and had an excellent view and no noise issues. First impression is that the hotel is a little far from the shops and restaurants, but the reality it is not really. We did when we first arrived there ask the guy in reception to get us a taxi to some of the restaurants we passed on the way to the hotel. The taxi driver had no meter and charged us 4000 colours for a what turned out to be a 5 minute journey. Maybe the hotel should have warmed us or guided us a little more? However we quickly learnt the way. Walk to the park is easy and takes maybe 10/5 mins along the beach ( head left as you come out of hotel onto the beach). There are restaurants and shops on the way to head up the hill and to the restaurants towards Quepos. Simply take a bus which passed every 15 minutes right outside the hotel entrance on the main road. It costs 340 colones no matter how far you go. The bus back also drops you off just outside the hotel entrance.

Impeccable service and beautiful beach
My wife and I stayed here for three nights during our honeymoon. The service and scenery were so impeccable we were speechless on arrival. Brandon and Michael were helpful on arrival and departure. Kenneth and Daniel provided us with the best and friendliest service on the beach and at the bar. A decent walk to Manuel Antonio and quick drive to tons of restaurants and shops up the mountain and in nearby Quepos. We truly can’t recommend the place more highly. We hope to return next year.

Great Place and Service
We loved this place. Small. Right on the beach. Great meals. Friendly staff. Strongly recommend. Great balcony although more comfortable furniture on porch would be nice. That said, we sat there frequently. Easy walk on beach to Antonio Manual Park. Great beach. Sun and shade.

There aren’t enough great things that we can say about Buena Vista, we absolutely loved our stay here. The rooms were lovely, the balconies were gorgeous, the AC worked so well, and it’s literally right on the beach. We especially loved the staff!! Brandon in the office was so awesome and helped us book great tours! We loved JC and Daniel at the bar, they made the best drinks and Nico and Jonathan on the beach took great care of us! Our only regret is not staying longer at this amazing spot!! Stay here and get a beach front villa, you won’t regret it! We even got to hang out with monkeys and sloths on the beach!

Cold Showers!!
Cold showers!! was there during the rainy season so it was rainy and cool. still did our stuff but coming back after a day spent in the cool and wet to a cold shower is the worst. Front desk Jan's was very unhelpful, maintenance guy came and "fixed" it, but it didn't work. we sucked it up and had to deal, which is unfortunate since this was the most expensive hotel on our stay. Location was good, on beach.
