The hoteliers make this hotel brilliant
Posted Feb 16, 2016
When I arrived at Finca Buena Fuente I didn't know what to expect. I arrived late at night in a Toyota Sedan after driving over rutted dirt roads in the dark. When I arrived, a charming man came out to meet me and direct me to my parking space and room, across a little bit of off road trickiness, which my car was fine with, actually, but an SUV would always be the better choice in Costa Rica.
My room was spartan but clean and happy. I had a kitchen I didn't use. There was a coffee pot but no coffee. But that didn't matter:
The best thing about Finca Buena Fuente is the coffee, the food, the service, the cook/waitress, and the amazing hosts, the hoteliers themselves. I think the man is named Luca and the woman, though I never learned her name, was amazing. They're Milanese Italians who opened this hotel and Northern Italian restaurant and garden. They're amazing.
Though not included in my $90/night stay, I had morning breakfasts that put the buffets I got from the nearby Westin to absolute shame:
Fresh handmade yogurt, watermelon juice, granola, papaya, little bananas, all grown on the grounds, pots of delicious coffee, and tap water from their well that was sweet and never made me sick, just happy. They made me eggs, too, and I got two eggs, over easy, once I let them know if and how I like me eggs. Oh, also, home made bread and toast with grass fed butter and preserves. So good. Superior.
I would return to Costa Rica just to stay here and see this amazing couple.
