Flo and Javier were extremely accommodating. The room was spotless as well as the property. The restaurant was down the hill and the main walk down to it was harder for this ole lady, but there is a short dirt road you can use to get to it. Fantastic view of the ocean. It was very relaxing to sit outside...

The views from the hotel room and from the breakfast area were stunning- best place to chill with a beer and enjoy sunset if you ask me. The hotel was really peaceful and the rooms were very comfortable. Javi and Flor were brilliant- extremely helpful and accomodating. They take such pride in their hotel and you feel at home here....

I needed an escape from the stress of the daily grind and the Hotel Buenos Aires was perfect. Javier was fantastic, calm and helpful. He is right there when you need anything and super responsive. The view is second to none, not just for Costa Rica but the sunset perched on top of the hill is unmatched, breathtaking. My husband...

We visited at the end of the dry season, so the whole area very dry and dusty. Buenos Aires is a little haven away from the road noise, elevated to get the most fantastic sunset and views of the Pacific. Javier the most helpful and genuine host. We stayed for five nights, and will be back for longer next time....

Most beautiful view we had in Costa Rica! Very clean and spacious rooms and a very friendly host. The main road in Santa Teresa is quite dusty and noisy, none of this will be your concern when you stay at Buenos Aires! Moreover the hotel offers a great breakfast and has a nice swimming pool as well.

This place was so nice to find away from the chaos of the rest of Santa tereasa. Quiet, clean and friendly, we were beyond happy with our stay. From playing with javi's dog, enjoying the pool to ourselves and the best free breakfast selection I've had with amazing views I would highly recommend. We enjoyed the amazing sunset view with...

The owners are very good and friendly. Would suggest to anyone staying in this part of the world it's one of the best places to be in town. The view in the mornings and at sunset are untouchable. I loved this place and will be back. The pool is also very clean.

The hotel is located on the hillside of Playa Carmen. The oceanview is stunning, you can check the waves first thing after getting up. I had a room with fan. It was plain but had everything I needed (fridge, bathroom) and was spotlessly clean (cleaned every day). And the rooms are affordable compared to the other places around. Best part...

The view here is a 10 for sure! Even the locals comment on it when you say where you're staying. It makes it much more enjoyable if you rent an ATV to get around (or if you've got a car with 4 wheel drive) since the hill is quite steep. If you come during the dry season like we did...
