A group of 16 girls went to VBO for my sisters bachelorette party and had the most unforgettable experience. The property was stunning and the staff was incredible. The chef cooked delicious meals and the house coordinator helped us organize transportation, a private yoga class, on site massages and more! The pool area was stunning and we spent a lot of time swimming and hanging by the swim up pool bar with the bartender. It was a quick drive to Coco for restaurants and bars. Gorgeous rooms and amenities. Highly recommend to all! The photo I attached was taken by a drone we brought. You can see how gorgeous it is! Will definitely be back.

Everything about Villa Buena Onda is over the top incredible! The property itself is beyond well appointed with absolutely everything you want/need. The staff went so far above and beyond to make our stay completely relaxing and enjoyable. The food was out of this world fantastic - fresh, flavorful, delicious and abundant!! We enjoyed awesome spa treatments, the pool and every amenity there! Located in a beautiful, private area, yet close enough to town/beach, if you want/need anything. We had the entire property for 6 senior girls and 10 parents for spring break. I know I've already said it...the onsite house and concierge staff are AMAZING!!!

Wonderful staff, great service. It's a hidden oasis, just close enough to town but far enough removed that you almost feel like on an private estate. Went on a multi-family trip and the entire team treated us like family. 10/10 will return!

Villa Buena Onda was incredible: the house, the pool, the view, the spa, the food…especially the staff. We rented the entire villa for a long weekend and would have stayed longer if we had known how fantastic the experience was going to be. The staff were all wonderful but a special mention goes to Alex, the on site concierge, and Heidy, the house “mom.” They were so gracious and warm and anticipated our every need. We have traveled all over but have rarely felt at home…Villa Buena Onda delivered that.

The best vacations ever, the view is breathtaking and the staff is exceptional, food was really good and breakfast was my favorite part of the day, close to town yet secluded at the same time, we were able to visit 3 different beaches, lounge at the beach club and walk around town.

I can not say enough great things about this place. The staff is top notch, the food is amazing and you can’t beat the location. We rented the entire villa and it was one of the best vacations I’ve ever had. I felt super safe and the staff helped coordinate everything from massages to boat trips. I would stay here again in a heart beat.

Beautiful family getaway! Room for the whole family or group you are going with! You feel like you are in your own personal resort. Separate bedrooms and bathrooms for each, personal chef and bartender. You never have to leave unless you want to. I had a massage onsite that was amazing! The views are so calming. You do not have a waterfront view, but no worries! You are only 5 minutes from downtown Coco, a fun hopping beach town. The Villa has everything you need. Come, enjoy and make memories. I guarantee you'll want to come back.
