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

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

Stunning views, luxurious rooms, great amenities. A nice distance form the main drag. Not to close not to far. The Food was superb. Great for those who want a quiet vacation be aware with seven rooms you get to know the other guest we enjoyed this but understand others may not.

The customer service was outstanding and Schelley went out of her way to email me and set up tours for us based on what we wanted to see or do while in Costa Rica. Christian was our server every morning for breakfast and was so kind to teach us Spanish during our stay! All the taxi drivers, transports and tour... More

The rating on trip Advisor speaks for itself; this place is truly special. We almost felt guilty with the pampering and service we were given. We have never traveled this way and would definitely recommend it to others. Truly relaxing and fun all booked into one package. The staff here know how to make vacation time memorable for their guests.... More

We enjoyed the tranquility and beauty of the Villa Buena Onda for 3 nights in November, just on the edge of green season, so we were able to get a great price. Everything about our stay here was amazing. The grounds and the facilities were new, clean, luxurious and relaxing. The view from our balcony was breathtaking. The pool was... More
