Villa Buena Onda was fantastic! We spent four wonderful days and were treated with superb service and accommodations. The food was great! VBO is the place to chill and soak in the rays. We'll be back. Tom & pat

We spent a week in this beautiful place and it wasn't nearly enough time. The setting is spectacular, the food is delicious but what really makes this place worth coming back to time and again is the staff. They couldn't do enough for us. A special "shout out" to Shelly, Caesar, and Carlos who were especially helpful and kind. This...

A veritable paradise. Tucked away in a rustic surrounding. The food was excellent, the menu extensive enough to hind anything you want, the service excellent, the presentation very creative and the taste-very tasty. The staff goes out of their way to make sure you are happy. Wonderful stay. Highly recommended BUT get a 2nd floor room. The view is spectacular....

We were treated like royalty from the moment we arrived. Everyone was very friendly and attended to our every need. VBO was quiet and peaceful with beautiful views. Meals are served on the outdoor patio, beautifully presented. Yoga, mani-pedi, whatever you want, they will try to please. 3 different beaches nearby with shopping. Very nice!

We really liked this place. It was quiet and peaceful -- but within easy walking distance of all the hurly burly of Coco. The rooms were first class and the meals were great -- especially breakfast! The view over Coco towards the ocean is like a postcard. The service is wonderful. We arrived very early from a red eye flight...

Villa Buena Onda was the destination for our fortieth wedding anniversary. It exceeded our expectations. The property was wonderfully built, with great views and wonderful staff. We had no recommendations for any improvements. Food was perfect, service even better. Clean comfortable and in a great setting.
