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...

What a beautiful Villa!! It is all stone with marble flooring with a view of the ocean! Wow! I felt like I was staying at a movie stars home! It is stunning and you are treated like family! It is a very beautiful place and also very relaxing. The food was wonderful, the service was wonderful; I highly recommend!!

WOW !! What a perfect conclusion to our 10 day stay in Costa Rica. Villa Buena Onda was like living in your very own mansion with a full staff at your fingertips. With only seven rooms it is a very intimate, relaxing venue with a superb view of the Gulf of Papgayo. We started our honeymoon in LaFortuna doing adventure... More

I cannot even begin to express how I feel about this amazing place. Upon arrival you are given a book that tells a little about Villa Buena Onda. One of the things that they say is that the goal is to make you feel at home. I can't say that this is true because we felt more than just at... More

Villa Buena Onda was the second stop of our Costa Rican vacation. For the first time on any vacation, we weren't ready to go home at the end. Everything about Villa Buena Onda was spectacular, but the staff deserves the credit. Everyone was friendly, accommodating and wonderful. Shelley went above and beyond - she emailed us before the trip and... More

My husband and I stayed in an Upstairs Room for 4 nights on our Honeymoon. The contact we had with the Villa before we arrived was excellent. But the person we corresponded with, was not there, so we were unable to meet her. We were welcomed upon arrival and were taken to our Room. We were told a few Rules:... More

Villa Buena Onda was amazing! We stayed in an ocean view room but actually wished we'd booked a pool view because you can still see the ocean with a pool view, but then you get a hammock. The food was very good, although not the best we had in Costa Rica. All the staff is incredibly nice, helpful and kind.... More
