We stayed at Villa Buena Onda for 1 week and it was the best part of our vacation. The rooms are amazing and the view is breath taking! We could not asked for a better more enjoyable time. We will be staying there every time we are in Costa Rica.

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
