Hotel Buena Vista

Road to Poás, 6 km (4 miles) north of Alajuela's Tribunales de Justicia, Alajuela, Alajuela, 20103, Costa Rica

Perched high above Alajuela, this hotel's superb staff makes up for the somewhat dated, uninspired interior, and it does have the "good view" it is named for, although most rooms overlook the lawns or pool area. Three balcony rooms on the second floor in back have decent views of the Central Valley, but even better are the views of Poás Volcano from the three rooms above the lobby. Mostly, the view is best appreciated from the back lawn. Rooms are fairly standard—carpeted and sparsely decorated, with small baths and TVs. The restaurant behind the lobby serves international dishes and grilled items.

PROS

  • excellent service
  • family-friendly

CONS

  • mediocre restaurant
  • farther from the airport than other options
