Buena Vista Lodge is your DESTINATION, not hotel
The most important thing to know about Buena Vista Lodge (BVL) is that it's your DESTINATION, not the place to rest your head while you go to other places. We booked this hotel thinking we'd go to two national parks nearby, but the road to get to BVL was such a nightmare, we decided to occupy ourselves with the activities offered on-site at BVL... And we're so glad we did! We walked to/from the spa (otherwise you pay for a tractor or horse ride), which made it free. We loved the spa. The hanging bridges were free, there was free coffee and corn pastries, an excellent free breakfast buffet... Free hiking trails... So great! Don't go zip lining here, though. Save it for Arenal or Monteverde (the zip cables here are on the short and boring side). There were howler monkeys in the trees behind our room, and that was our favorite part of the trip. There are wildlife everywhere. The pool was nice, too. Bad news: The room could be cleaner. The floor was gross (I could tell by how the bottom of my white socks darkened). The toilet became clogged because it had zero flushing power, and the front desk isn't open 24 hours so we had to wait until morning to get a plunger. So, BVL is an amazing place for the activities, but the hotel room itself was so-so. We had a great time overall.

Too rustic, long, long way up! And, no A.C.
Hotel is very rustic but clean. It is a very long way up to get to the hotel with primarily unpaved roads up. Please note::::: NO A.C.!!!! It was not noted in write up!!! Also, beds were extra firm! :(

Outstanding5.0 / 5
Spectacular!
My family loved this destination! The hotel room itself was very simple but clean and perfect for our needs. Lets face it you don't go to Costa Rica to sit in your hotel. The activities that this hotel offers are outstanding!!!! The views are spectacular!!! Out of 20 days in Costa Rica this was one of our favorite places. The staff here were all extremely nice and always willing to accommodate. I highly recommend this location and the extremo package for the activities!

Perfect family getaway
Great location all the activities you need, horse back riding, hot spring, zip lining, hanging bridge, water slide!! the drive to get there a bit long 1H, but once there worth the drive. Not a luxurious hotel but perfect for an adventure getaway. Perfect for families. The food nothing exceptional, very basic.

nice
Rincon de la Viejo is another beautiful rainforest. The horse ride to the springs was alright...the return trip better as we went off the beaten path far more beautiful. The zip/canopy had far too many people ( 16 ) so the wait time for each line seemed eternal.
