Really a once in a lifetime experience! The villa is beautiful and the staff are exceptional. The ambiance is quiet, and personal-which is what we were looking for. Not your typical party all inclusive resort. Perfect for relaxing between excursions. Food is excellent (we were dissapointed when we were on an excursion and missed a meal!) I really cannot think...

My wife and I were looking for a peaceful vacation without screaming children and lots of noise. This was the Perfect place for us! Where should I start.... Location - It is nestled on a hill overlooking the treetops with a view of the bay. Every night we witnessed the most beautiful sunsets. There are 3 beaches (Coco, Ocotal, Hermosa)... More

Our stay at Villa Bueno Onda was only a day, but incredibly enjoyable. We chose this location because of its proximity to Liberia International Airport. The pace itself feels like you're saying in one really big house. The gated driveway entrance opens into a huge common area that feels like a living room. It's looks out to a large two-level...

A once in a lifetime experience. This villa offers everything families, couples, or friends need in a quiet, relaxing stay. Its away (about 5 minutes drive) from the beach town of Coco, up on a bluff, with gorgeous views of the coastline. The staff will make you feel welcome from the minute you get off your shuttle, or out of... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here before catching our flight out of Liberia. Even though we were only here for one night, it was a memorable stay. From start to finish, everything at Villa Buena Onda was luxurious and top-notch. It felt like we were staying at a friend's luxury home, minus any kids since the resort is adults-only! Upscale...

If you're looking for a true tropical getaway, book a stay at Villa Buena Onda. The property is not only beautiful, it's exclusive and quiet as an adults-only, seven-room property in Costa Rica. My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights during the week, and there were only two other couples there, which made the experience all the more intimate... More

This stay was a truly memorable one. Beautiful view from the room with A/C functioning flawlessly. Bed was so comfortable and plenty of space in shower. All the staffs are courteous and friendly and accommodating. Best part was meals. Not only they serve 3 meals a day but they are so unique and delicious. Hats off to Gabriel. I just... More

My wife and I brought our three adult children and their significant others for a milestone family vacation to Villa Buena Onda. The week we spent here was beyond excellent. I have stayed in many hotels around the world and this place is among the best I have stayed at in 30 years of traveling. The small hotel model was... More
