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...

Said Jesus to the thief on the cross, but truly any guest at the Buenos Aires enjoying a fantastic breakfast at the Brisas del Mar could say that to any other guest, and it would be apt. This was our third time at the Buenos Aires -- a stay of eight nights this time -- and I've reviewed it twice...

Stayed here a week with a good friend & we had a fabulous time. Fantastic location, perched on a hillside overlooking the ocean. Quiet, peaceful & clean. Amazing sunsets. Chill little front patio area & stocked mini fridge. Pool access just down the hill. Beach access, shops & restaurants a few steps farther at the bottom of the hill. Javier...

To arrive in such natural surroundings and yet find a lovely spacious room , with white curtains just moving gently in the breeze, freshly laundered bed linen and towels AND a view of the ocean below was just breathtaking! Service? That's far too formal a word to describe the warmth, kindness, practical help and concern for guests comfort and happiness...

This was the best place we stayed in Costa Rica! The rooms are clean, the host Javi is really helpful, the view/sunset is amazing and the included breakfast is fantastic and one of the best breakfasts I have had, ever. The banana pancakes were my favourite but it was all great. The hotel is up a bit of a hill,...

Very tasty breakfasts served in the restaurant below with the iguanas (Carlos, Rodriguez & family!!) Beautiful and tranquil haven away from the hustle & bustle with fantastic views and...

My partner Jordan and I stayed here in December for 5 nights and did the yoga/surf package. We had a lovely stay here and Javier was very helpful from the moment we started booking the reservation until we left. We opted for the fan room option which was sufficient for us. The room was spacious and clean. The views from...

This place is incredible! My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights, but we could have stayed there forever. This place not only offers you the most amazing view over Santa Teresa and the sea, but also a very relaxing atmosphere, cosy hammocks, and a very friendly and helpful host, Javier. Besides, we really enjoyed a very delicious breakfast...

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Buenos Aires for 4 days. The hotel is a dream. The Vista is spectacular. The iguanas hang around in the trees and relaxing in the hammocks is just gorgeous. Javier is also super cool and supports with all matters. We would definitely come back. Saludos, Sonja y Stefan
