We had a marvelous time staying at this Villa. The staff treat you even better than royalty. They treat you like family and friends. One of the gems about this resort is the intimacy. There are only eight rooms available. Not only do you get to know all the staff by name (and vica versa), you also get to know... More

My husband and I honeymooned at Villa Buena Onda the first week in April 2014. As we are an older couple, we sought a romantic destination venue exclusive to adults, with privacy, and limited guests. We are foodies, and a bit fussy about our food, wine, and cocktails, thus our gastronomic expectations are high. I can't say enough about our... More

Excellent Resort to Relax. The staff was OUTSTANDING!!!! Jennifer, Shelly, Javier and Rosa were especially helpful an treated us like old friends. I would highly recommend Villa Buena Onda to anyone visiting Coast Rica's west coast. One recommendation would be to rent a car if you would like to see an travel to different areas. We rented from Adobe Rental.... More

My wife and had a great stay at Villa Buena Onda. It was chosen as the final boutique hotel of three we stayed at during our Costa Rican honeymoon. We ended on a high. The staff were great, funny and accommodating. The hotel itself was all we had hoped for with great views of the ocean. The shuttle meant getting... More

We chose Villa Buena because it was a Boutique Hotel and didn't allow small children. The Villa is beautiful in every aspect, spacious rooms, beautiful grounds, PHENOMINAL staff! Never before have we received such personalized service from the concierge, Chef, Bartender, and even the complimentary shuttle driver...we couldn't have made a better choice to meet our expectations. The Ocean view... More

Full course, and muy rico, breakfast (desayuno), lunch (almuerzo), and dinner (la cena) are included with your stay. The foods range from local fair to American and European options, with full menu service and drinks with every... More

Villa Buena Onda was a perfect place for a week long vacation. Close to the airport (Liberia), easy car ride from great beaches, wonderful amenities, I could just keep going! Rooms were beautiful (and spacious). Staff was very helpful and friendly. We booked a bunch of excursions through Buena Onda and they easily managed all the details. The meals were... More

My husband and I decided to take a "babymoon" (I'm 5 months pregnant) and had pretty strict criteria when we were initially looking at locations across the globe to travel to. When we settled on Costa Rica we relied heavily on reviews left by other tripadvisor members to make our decision. When we first stumbled across the reviews for Villa... More

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.

Nearby half a dozen beaches, fishing spots, surf breaks and under an hour from the Rincon de La Vieja (hot springs, mud pits) National Park.
