This is a very unusual place. The rooms are all glass looking out a the ocean. Great view of the sun setting into the Pacific! It is somewhat of a walk to the beach but it is worth it as the beach is very clean and there were not many people there. It is a great beach for those like me who like to walk the beach. The Hotel pool is very nice and warm as well. The restaurant food was good. The only downside is the the walking paths to you room are uneven and steep in places.

I can’t write enough about how amazing Buenavista is! This property is gorgeous with 12 units, inviting pools, beautiful Mountain View’s, clean rooms, and was my favorite place I stayed during my trip. It includes a homemade breakfast that was some of the best food I had while here. The rooms are cleaned daily and are updated, modern and comfortable. The family is phenomenal and very accommodating and kind. I absolutely love them! They helped arrange tours, transportation, and anything you need. Vincent is one of the sons who helped suggest restaurants, what to do, coordinates and arranges all of your needs and takes care of every detail. It is less than a 10 min walk to the beach, restaurants and small convenience store. If I ever get to come back, I would stay here! This place is a tropical and charming paradise, and the family who runs it are the most amazing people who loves their guests and make you feel like family. Pura Vida!

This hotel has spacious rooms, which was nice but there were no closets or hangers in some of the rooms (our group had three rooms). Two of us had to move to a new room, because of a problem with the water but the staff made it all easy. The grounds of the hotel are quiet and peaceful, but there is a very steep incline/decline to the pool and restaurant from reception and many of the rooms. This could be challenging for some. The food at the restaurant was very good. Everybody seems to follow handwashing, face mask and distancing rules. Short walk to the beach, but you have to walk along the road, which is common in Costa Rica but unfamiliar for us.

We had a great time at this resort. The staff was excellent and very supportive. Food was excellent. View to the ocean was excellent. The pool was perfect and offered a great view of the ocean and the monkeys that roamed the local trees. Our room was spacious and very clean. Loved this place.

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Nammbu and loved it! It was so peaceful and relaxing. The view of the beach from our room was so nice and we enjoyed sitting on the patio watching the sunset. The onsite restaurant overlooking the beach was great too and ALL the meals we had there were wonderful. It's a bit pricey but we had no interest in leaving the resort so we ate all our meals at the resort. Plus the service we got from the staff was 5 stars! From the restaurant, the poolside service and the front desk... everyone was so nice and helpful. We can't wait to return on our next trip to Playa Carrillo! One more thing.. Playa Carrillo is a nice quiet beach without all the tourist and business other beaches have. We enjoyed our walks on the beach too!
