Casa Buena Vista is a very well run hotel with finishings to a high standard and wonderful breakfasts . The owners are hands on snd it shows. Terrific location and 2 swimming pools . The rooms are very well designed with all the amenities and very comfortable beds . Located about 200 meters from what I consider to be the best unspoiled beach in Costa Rica. It is the perfect small hotel for relaxation and exploration. Can’t wait to return

I have been traveling in Costa Rica and this is one of the best hotel/B&B's I have even stayed at. The rooms are basically new with great design and are super clean, the grounds and pools are amazing, and the location is perfect for a quick sunset stroll on Playa Carillo, or short day trips to some of the most beautiful and secluded beaches in Costa Rica. The view from the balconies of the jungle canopy and grazing horses is pretty relaxing. The breakfasts are healthy and delicious, and Jan the manager is incredibly friendly and accommodating. I'm already picking out which room to try for our next stay.

This place was so perfect! Very friendly owners who gave local tips and were kind enough to shuttle us into Samara! The rooms were great and the pool was very nice! Minutes away from the gorgeous Carillo Beach!
