San José

Buena Vista Chic Hotel


Comfort outside the capital

Nestled in a coffee plantation on a lush hilltop overlooking downtown San Jose, a short ride from the airport, Buena Vista Chic Hotel is a more than comfortable stop between flights.

30 guest rooms are split between the light-filled buildings and villas surrounded by gardens. Dining is in the restaurant, al fresco on the patio or by the pool, with contemporary international cuisine infused with subtle Costa Rican flair.
