This is a great start/end point for a stay in Costa Rica - It's close to the airport (and runs a free shuttle) The newly renovated room we had was beautifully and tastefully done with huge comfortable beds and a balcony. The shower had a...More
We stopped for two nights at this hotel during our honeymoon, both times we were catching flights the next morning.
The hotel is very pretty, set in the mountains, with a terrific view. We stayed in the "SunDeck Suite" and the Villa.

Response from BuenaVistaAlajuela, Owner at Hotel Buena VistaResponded 3 September 2012
I am happy that these guests enjoyed some aspects of their experience with us and unhappy they were not 100% satisfied. The comments about poor service are of particular concern because we normally receive complimentary comments regarding our helpful, friendly staff. We had a staff...More
A great hotel. We had a villa, and it was simply great - very convenient, and nicely decorated. There seemed to be thought behind every feature, such as convenient light control, comfortable beds, nice bathroom, good shampoo/conditioner, etc.
There's also great view of Alajulela as...More
This is an amazing property with banana trees and coffee plants. Splurge and get the villa. It's so worth it. It is beautiful with bamboo ceilings, patio overlooking city with a rocking swinger chair, ceiling fans, and gorgeous Tommy Bahama like bedding. The bathroom is...More
What a great place to relax and get some rest before heading back to the States! After a week on the Osa, our family of four was tired and ready to go home, but rushing to the airport the day before would have been torturous....More

The staff were wonderful about picking us up at the airport at no additional cost. They also offer all sorts of excursions at very reasonable prices. Poaz is usually a 6 hour tour and costs approximately $120.00 for 2 people. The tour also includes a typical lunch. While we were there, Poaz volcano had just erupted causing some damage to the surrounding area. Therefore, we were not able visit this last time. My hope for you is that the clean-up will have been completed prior to your arrival. Staff at Buena Vista might be able to make a special trip from 2 - 6pm for you. However, I would encourage you to go in the morning, if at all possible. That way, you and your daughter will not be rushed and can enjoy the sights better. Also, the fog tends to roll in during the early afternoon making the volcano less visible.
I hope this was helpful and I wish you and your daughter a lovely Costa Rican holiday:-)
