A partner of Tulemar Resort, Buena Vista Beach Villas is located on Playa Espadilla, in the heart of Manuel Antonio. Straddling tropical flora and fauna on one side, and turquoise sea on another, the eight villas guarantee a stunning view from every angle. Nature permeates this coastal hotel, so expect guest appearances from sloths and white-faced monkeys, hanging at leisure in the trees around the property.

Buena Vista Beach Villas is a 3 hour drive from San Jose airport, in the Manuel Antonio area. The center of Manuel Antonio is only a 3-5 minute taxi ride away, where you can find a host of shops, restaurants, and bars. Also a 10 minute walk away is the Manuel Antonio National Park. Explore nature’s treasure chest by taking a walk through the winding trails, where tropical birds can be found just around the corner.

Sounds of the Sea

On a one mile stretch of tranquil sand and surf, the tones of nature will fill your stay. Admire the sight of the sea in the day and listen to the sound of the waves as you sleep. Savor it all from your bedroom retreat.

If the ebb and flow of the tide draws you in, the hotel provides beach equipment rentals, including body-boards, surf-boards, bikes, and kayaks. If you want to stray further afield, off-site tours can be arranged for you. Get your fix of adventure ATVing through the jungle or canyoning down waterfalls.

A Fresh Take

The rooms are decorated in a contemporary, minimalist fashion. With crisp white linen and dark wood furnishings, they offer modern amenities such as smart TVs and botanical toiletries. At eight units in total, seven rooms, and one suite, all come with balconies or patios, and full or partial ocean views. You can expect lovely scenery, and a place to soak up the tranquil beach lifestyle from anywhere on the property.

Small is Beautiful at Buena Vista Beach Villas

The merit of such a cozy hotel is that service is personalized, with hospitality of top priority at Buena Villa Villas. Staff are encouraged to get to know guests on a first-name basis, inspiring a friendly, informal atmosphere.

From bringing drinks straight to your sun loungers, to organizing off-site adventure tours, staff work hard to ensure that every whim is satisfied. Park yourself under the hotel’s shaded palm trees or sweeping umbrellas, knowing that you’ll be in good hands for the day.

Dining and Reclining

As the sun goes down, you don’t even have to stray from your beach-side oasis. Enjoy a cold beer or a golden hour cocktail from the on-site tiki bar, which runs happy hour from 12 p.m. – 10 p.m. daily. For some evening entertainment listen to live music and watch the flames leap from the hotel’s beach bonfires, or be tossed around by local fire dancers.

This ambiance extends to the hotel’s restaurant which masters simple, much-loved classics. Choose from Latin American specialties, such as ceviche, guacamole, or the catch of the day. Always fresh and always at reasonable, market prices, dinner is an alfresco affair. For breakfast, choose from international options such as the ‘Gringo’ breakfast of eggs and bacon. Or go Tico with the ‘Pura Vida’ breakfast, serving the staples of gallo pinto and corn tortillas. Happy to accommodate vegetarians and those with other dietary needs, there’s something for everyone in this gem of the Central Pacific coastline.
