Came here from a personal recommendation. Lovely friendly owner, pretty views - very relaxing. A short walk downhill to the town. Fantastic food at the restaurant and nice pool. Amazing view to wake up to. You just have to walk back up hill to get home :)

Hotel Buenos Aires is perfection. We were immediately greeted by Javier and he showed us around and gave us good information about the town. Prior to arrival, I emailed Javier multiple times and he was quick with responses and helped me with planning our trip and setting up transportation. We stayed in an upstairs room with AC and were very...

What a great place to call home while on holiday in Santa Teresa! Had such a good time in February that I had to return for more at the end of March.
