Villa Buena Onda is wonderful in every aspect; location, staff, facilities, and food. I stayed here while on my Honeymoon. My husband and I both stayed in a downstairs room. It was awesome. I loved that it was adults only and there weren't many other guest at the hotel. For this reason, it was so peaceful. We ate like kings... More

Villa Buena is amazing. It has six rooms, so if you don't like big crowds and just want to relax then this is your place. The staff builds a friendship like relationship with you, and makes you feel like a millionaire on your own private resort, or your own little slice of heaven. The view is breathtaking and the pool... More

After spending a week adventuring through Costa Rica, Villa Buena Onda was the most relaxing and luxurious way to end our vacation. The Villa (rooms and common areas) and the staff was amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed each of our tasty meals and appreciated the the serenity of sitting in VBO's infinity pool while also in the most lush landscape. Although... More

My wife and I have stayed in a lot of very nice hotels and this one has them all beat. It was luxurious without being pretentious, very comfortable, and had an open and inviting atmosphere. We were especially charmed by the staff. They went out of their way to share with us their culture and personal stories. They all made... More

This resort was perfect, the staff was very friendly and meet all of our needs. The food was probably the best meals I have ever had. Would strongly recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet romantic getaway.

On our way to the airport I turned to my husband and said..."you know there is definitely a downfall to staying at such a small place and that is that you just get attached to people like they are family." First, I would like to thank Gabriella at reservations for, among other things, sending me directions to VBO in spanish... More

This is the first time my husband and I have reviewed a hotel separately as I did the initial planning for his 80th birthday celebration with our immediate family. It included our two sons, their wives and our 16 year old granddaughter. From the beginning the planning was easy for me with the reservation director Gabriela. He has already mentioned... More
