Villa Buena Onda is a 7 room boutique hotel nestled in the hills overlooking Coco Beach (playas del coco) and according to staff, was a private home when it was first built. We had booked a pool view room, but because they were not at capacity, we were offered a free upgrade to an Ocean View room, which we gladly... More

We had the pleasure of enjoying a short stay at Villa Buena Onda during a special family event where the whole Villa was especially reserved for us and our friends. We arrived just in time for lunch and got to experience an absolutely amazing meal outside by the pool. We sampled the curry chicken salad, the chicken nachos, the beef... More

We recently spent an all too short stay at Villa Buena Onda. The hotel is an imposing Villa and gives the feeling of being in someones luxurious mansion rather than in a hotel. The attentive but discrete staff are just incredible, always there but never in the way. The rooms are large, very comfortable, modern and equipped. We stayed in... More

Pura Vida! As I enjoy my bamboo massage on the open terrace and the fiery ball of heat slowly disappears at the end of the ocean, I'm reminded that we are experiencing the final moments of day light of our Costa Rica honeymoon. The violet clouds dancing to the music of the ocean. Every palm leaf surfing on the wind... More

My husband and 18 year old daughter and I just returned from a wonderful week's stay at Villa Buena Onda. We were very impressed by the warmth and friendliness of all the staff coupled with their professionalism. Shelley and Jennifer both know the area well and were able to answer every question we had with speed and courtesy. When we... More

I don't normally write hotel reviews, but our four-day stay in Villa Buena Onda is such an exceptional experience that I felt I could not possibly do it the disservice of not writing and raving about it! The hotel is like home to us. It is beautiful, clean and comfortable, and very well maintained. We notice that every little detail... More

I was impressed with this hotel before we even arrived! I received an email from Shelley introducing herself and the hotel, along with details of excursions they offer. As it was my husbands birthday on the last night Shelley helped me secretly arrange a special dinner too. The villa itself sits up on a hill in Coco with the most... More

We stayed only two nights in the top king ocean view bedroom and were so sad to go! The staff look after you like family and the cooking class is so fun. Drinks are very good, food is gourmet, and the bed is luxury! We only had 8 guests so it felt like a private mansion all to ourselves! Treat... More

You will read some amazing reviews about this place and they are all accurate. I saw one person that gave it a poor review; didn't stay there! I'm telling you, STAY HERE. It is beyond compare...where to begin? We started our vacation in Arenal in the central rain forest and were being taken by van to the Villa Buena Onda... More
