This was one of the best surprises in all of my travels. The road to the hotel definitely disguises the beautiful place that you are to spend your days in a beautiful and peaceful oasis. It is a small villa with a private staff that treats you like family and royalty at the same time. The food was delightful and... More

Villa Buena Ondo: Exceptional! The vacation to Costa Rica was to celebrate our friend Lakiesha’s 40th birthday. There were six of us on this trip. Three of us has traveled together the entire 15 years of our friendship. The trip was divided onto two parts. We stayed here for the second half of our vacation. I had never stayed at... More

Villa Buena Onda must mean peace because that feeling encompasses you from the very first moment you arrive! We celebrated our 40th anniversary there. Where do the praises begin- they never end! The staff is there to make your days perfect and that they do-their attentiveness never intrusive. Instead they make you feel special and like they truly care. The... More

We loved our time here. The staff was helpful suggesting tours and the place had wonderful views of the Pacific. The food was awesome and the beaches were nice. We had the perfect combination of activity and relaxation!!

Villa Buena Onda was a perfect end of our 11 day Costa Rican Adventure vacation. We spent 4 nights here and would have liked to spend more. The villa is gorgeous, architecturally stunning, and comfortable, the views spectacular, the food excellent and the staff warm, welcoming, attentive, knowledgeable and helpful. There are only 7 rooms at this beautiful boutique hotel... More

We decided to go to Costa Rica for our honeymoon. The plan was to spend 3 nights on the beach at Villa Buena Onda and 3 nights in the rain forest at Rio Celeste Hideaway. Though the weather at Playas del Coco (where Villa Buena Onda is located) was not ideal for enjoying the beaches and ocean due to high... More

We just returned from a five night stay at the Villa Buena Onda and can't wait to return. The hotel is beautiful, clean, and luxurious. The food and drinks were delicious and the staff couldn't be better. Everyone was so friendly and accomodating. I can't think of a single thing they could improve upon!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights recently to end our vacation in Costa Rica. The villa is beautiful, very nicely decorated, with a very pretty view of the water in the distance. Our room was big, comfortable, and had great views (one of the king sized rooms on the top floor). The pool area (while beautiful) is... More

I stayed here with three friends for six nights. We did not want to leave! Can't pick any faults- accommodation was beautiful, and staff went above and beyond. The food was excellent, and I felt very spoilt to receive a beautiful dessert on my birthday and happy birthday sung to me by the lovely staff! We really hope to be... More

I cannot even begin to say how much I loved Villa Buena Onda! It was quiet, relaxing and just made you feel so special all at the same time. Shelley, Jennifer, Carlos, Javier, Christian and Gabriel were all amazing and constantly made sure that we were happy. The food is great (thanks, Gabriel!), service is perfect, rooms are huge with...
