Stunning views, luxurious rooms, great amenities. A nice distance form the main drag. Not to close not to far. The Food was superb. Great for those who want a quiet vacation be aware with seven rooms you get to know the other guest we enjoyed this but understand others may not.

The customer service was outstanding and Schelley went out of her way to email me and set up tours for us based on what we wanted to see or do while in Costa Rica. Christian was our server every morning for breakfast and was so kind to teach us Spanish during our stay! All the taxi drivers, transports and tour... More

The rating on trip Advisor speaks for itself; this place is truly special. We almost felt guilty with the pampering and service we were given. We have never traveled this way and would definitely recommend it to others. Truly relaxing and fun all booked into one package. The staff here know how to make vacation time memorable for their guests.... More

We enjoyed the tranquility and beauty of the Villa Buena Onda for 3 nights in November, just on the edge of green season, so we were able to get a great price. Everything about our stay here was amazing. The grounds and the facilities were new, clean, luxurious and relaxing. The view from our balcony was breathtaking. The pool was... More

I stayed here for 3 nights with my wife and had a wonderful time. Staff was super friendly, great service by the bartenders (Cristian, Carlos and Javier) and the food by chef Gabriel was really really good. Shelly and Ceasar were great too, always with great tips about what to do. We enjoyed our stay, it was a necessary break... More

We read reviews about this location and thought this would be possibly a good place to stay, and it was!. This was the perfect place for my family to enjoy Costa Rica and their beauties. This hotel has seven rooms, very big and spacious and the beds were incredibly comfortable. The food was really good too! I recommend the seafood... More

We felt like we were staying in a friend's home...not just some resort. Let me start by making a couple of suggestions. First, meet other guests and staff. This is such a small place and knowing your neighbors at the small outside dining area and sharing stories makes it even more fun. Plus it gives you someone to play Jenga... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Villa Buena Onda (VBO) from 2/15/15-2/20/15 and everything about the stay was simply exceptional. Situated in the hills and mountainside about 5 miles of Playa del Coco, the VBO is a private 7 room villa providing a private staff and picturesque views. The staff was unbelievably warm and friendly and attentive to every need... More
