First time to Costa Rica and I have to say honestly that I did not see another hotel in Santa Teresa that I would have rather stayed at. Hotel Buenos Aires is perfecto! It sits on top of a big hill which is nice because it is just far enough away from town to feel "secluded" and very relaxing, with... More

Peace, quiet, good food, exercise, sunshine, friendly people and no worries. A prescription that we had no problem following. Everyone comments on the view for good reason- simply spectacular. Javier and Flo do a wonderful job making every guest feel at right at home. We are already planning to return next year. This place was perfect for us, but maybe... More

My husband and I stayed at Buenos Aires for a week in February, 2015. The view from the balcony was stunning. We made sure to be out there every evening to watch the glorious sunset over the Pacific Ocean. It was so breathtaking it brought me to tears. The rooms are simple, but more than adequate and very clean. Javier... More

We stayed at Buenos Aires for 6 nights in March 2015 and it was fantastic. From the beginning, Javier was helping us out. He recommended Surf lessons for us, booked our zip-lining and arranged our taxi to and from the airport. He gave us tips on where to go and how to get there. Its on top of a huge... More

We had a wonderful stay in Buenos Aires hotel where we spent 4 nights in Feb 2015. The rooms are simple but comfortable, and Javier is always willing to give his tips. The 100m steep walk to get there is really worth it for the view and the hospitality of Javier! We also really enjoyed the swimming pool after surfing.... More

What a place! My girlfriend and I spent 5 days at Buenos Aires and we had such a relaxed time enjoying the friendly service of the Hosts(Javier&Flor) and the breathtaking view from up there.

Awesome location, Javi is very welcoming, amazing view of the surf below from the front of the property. We saw people have trouble getting up the gravel road to the house and even get stuck, 4x4 vehicle recommended, just keep the car's momentum going though and you'll be fine, the precarious steps require an able body for traversing up and...

It is just one of my favorite places on the Planet. Peace and quiet - away from the busy town life of infinitely perfect surfer girls and quads (four wheelers) walking and riding through the dust in town. At Buenos Aires Hotel you can truly unwind.... completely - nowhere to go - nothing to do. The breeze is lovely and... More
