If you are looking for an upscale vacation with all meals included this hotel is remarkable! With only a 10 person staff we received exceptional attention! We went on the Hidden Beaches tour that was recommended by the hotel and it was incredible!

What an amazing place. Our experience was more than we imagined. This is a boutique hotel with about 8 rooms. If you're seeking a serene environment to re-kindle your love, relax, read a novel or write a book, this is definitely the hotel! The hotel is absolutely beautiful, well maintained and extremely clean, upscale interior design plush landscape, beautiful swimming... More

If you are looking for a personalized, luxurious (4-star) experience close to the beautiful beaches in Guanacaste - "the Villa" is just the place! This very small boutique property offers stunning views, beautiful accommodations and an outstanding staff that exceeded my expectations. We planned our week-long vacation (with our college-aged kids) with the idea that we would do full day... More

We chose Villa Buena Onda through TripAdvisor as we were looking for a tranquil holiday. We were promised that, and we got it. The hotel is a bit off the beaten track, but has wonderful views of the valley and the sea beyond. The rooms were spacious and well appointed, with large sheltered balconies and spectacular views. The staff was... More

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...
