Everything about this place is simply wonderful! 😍 The serenity and tranquility, our wonderful room and the view, the delicious breakfast, the pool setup, and the friendly, amazing owners 😊 They have provided us valuable information about the surrounding area, activities, beaches and places to eat nearby. We felt like spending our second honeymoon here, thank you so much Vincent, Sabine and the family 🤗 We will definitely come back!

This place is about 100m from the Playa Carrillo beach which itself is a nice beach to hang out. Our room at Buenavista was a nice clean fair sized room by the pool. The place is ran by a very friendly German family. Breakfast is good too. Right now the 'town' of Playa Carrillo is just a few small guest houses on a little dusty road off from the beach front, but I think it might grow in the future as an alternative to the bustling Samara nearby, but this was exactly what we wanted, somewhere nice and quiet with not many people, close to the Playa Carrillo beach and just a few minuted drive to Samara. Not everyone thinks the same but we preferred Carrillo to Samara. The beach itself is different in that there are NO restaurants, bars, cafes, etc. like Samara, just a nice, clean quiet palm tree fringed beach with the odd scarlet macaw in the trees. Great sunsets down on the beach too. Highly recommend this place if you want clean, friendly and quiet.

The other comments say it all, it's perfect! I just want to add that we had a "standard" room, across the street from the main building. And we loved it, it had air conditioned, wine glasses, plates, a mini frig etc for a simple meal if desired. It was more private than the rooms on the poo, and we had a private little garden to sit outside and enjoy birds and horses across the fence! For us it was even better than the more luxury rooms. A great relaxing stay!

My girlfriend and I enjoyed out stay immensely, the owner Vincent and his staff are wonderful, beautiful accommodations, the jungle, the immaculate gardens, beautiful large clear warm pool, the place is very spacious, steps to the ocean, snorkeling, fishing, bicycling, kayaking, or just sit back and let the day evolve, paradise, we'll be back!
