  • This is a luxury lodge as far as I am concerned. The paved roads, impeccable service, well signed trails, and rustic rooms were perfect for our stay. The lodge employs ~60 people and they work very hard. The food was pretty standard and the restaurant prices were about what you pay in the USA at a reasonable hotel. Given the remote nature of this place, I was happy to pay fair prices. The only draw back was several of us were bitten by insects either in our beds or during excursions; This is hardly the hotel's fault. We did see a lot of tour groups come through from the beaches. They all looked tired from what must be a long day. I don't know why anyone would make a day trip here; You should stay a couple nights, enjoy the view, and do the excursions a la carte for a much better experience.
  • We had a fantastic guide! He was extremely nice and funny-also spoke great English. We had so much fun!! I would highly recommend the mega combo. Best bang for your buck, completely worth it!!
  • PLEASE AVOID ANY AND ALL EXCURSIONS HOSTED OR PLANNED BY BUENA VISTA. We traveled 2 hours on an excursion with them on Sunday, December 3, 2017, from DREAMS Costa Rica and saw person after person almost lose their life or get seriously injured. Just within my party of 19 people, we had a few people flip over in the water slide, one of them seriously injuring her head when it smacked up against the concrete slide as she flipped uncontrollably. The worst and most horrible site was the woman who was allowed to move from one platform to the next on the zip line before the person in front of her had been detached properly. They almost collided in midair, but she instead collided into a tree and seriously injured her back and had to be rushed to a local hospital for care. Both she and her 12-year old daughter left the resort absolutely traumatized by the experience. I also witnessed a man from another party come out of the water slide with a bloody mouth and a missing front tooth. He said his experience on the slide was similar to what we witnessed within our party. Our guide was really nice and informative. However, he claimed that in all of years he had never seen any serious accidents happen during the excursions. I find that hard to believe after witnessing so many of them in such a short period of time. Avoid them if you want your life.
  • Awesome experience. Zip lines and hot springs/mud bath are Amazing. The waterslide is dangerous. It moves so fast you almost go over the edge
  • So many forever memories from here. Firstly the welcoming staff and then all of the activities that are available. I went horseriding for about an hour through some of the most amazing mountainous countryside and then stopped mid-hack to visit the waterfall for a view of an amazing waterfall. I cloudwalked along the trees to see close up views of a family of monkeys in their natural habitat even though I have a fear of heights! The information tour of the coffee making facilities and free samples of food and snacks provided a lovely stop with an opportunity to look around the home made pottery selection. Followed by the scariest longest water slide that won't be forgotten in a long while. The drive to and from this volcanic retreat provides views of the most stunning countryside and a chance to see more of this beautiful country and local people. Ours was a private tour so we stopped at local shops of our own choice on the way back to pick up souvenirs and took millions of photos as and when we wanted. Fab day and lovely staff and would definitely go back and best value ever
