Lonely Planet review
About 5km north of Alajuela, this whitewashed Mediterranean-style hotel, perched on a mountaintop, has panoramic views of the nearby volcanoes. The best of the tastefully decorated, newly remodeled rooms have private balconies with valley views; five villas offer privacy along with wood-beamed ceilings, minibar and private balcony. A small trail leads from the hotel through a coffee finca and down to the main road.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Buena Vista and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Alajuela & the Northern Valley.
