Standard Rooms

Hotel Buena Vista's standard rooms have 2 queen beds, satellite TV, wireless internet and private bathroom with built-in hairdryer. Located on the first floor, the walls are concrete which reduces ambient noise.


Deluxe Rooms

Deluxe rooms are more private with balconies that have various views of the surrounding area. We recommend the valley view rooms where you can sit on the patio and enjoy the truly amazing panorama before you.



Junior Suites

Perfect for families or groups, Junior Suites are larger than the deluxe and standard rooms with several choices for queen, king and single beds. All suites have balconies to sit and relax on.



Sun Deck Suite

The Sun Deck Suite is even larger than the Junior Suites. The most notable feature is the 17 X 24 ft balcony with a direct view of Poas Volcano. Sunsets are beautiful from this vantage point. This room has two queen beds and one single bed.



Luxury Villas

Buena Vista has added villas to their choice of accomodations. Beautifully appointed, these free standing units can sleep up to 6 guests with two queen beds and a sleeper sofa. Almost 800 sq feet affords a living room, bedroom, bar area, private bathroom, cable tv, wireless internet, and a balcony. Again, the views from these units are spectacular.

Swimming Pool

Buena Vista does have a small swimming pool available for use by its guests




The Quetzal room serves a wide variety of dishes, from soups and salads to sandwiches and dinner entrees all at reasonable prices. There is a large assortment of appetizers and snacks. The menu is also kid friendly, with burgers and pasta available. The type of cuisine ranges from American to Indonesian to the traditional Costa Rican fare.
