Villa Buena Onda is a true hidden gem tucked in the hills of Playas del Coco. It has the feeling of true 5-star luxury throughout, despite its villa size. You get resort service & quality with intimate boutique hotel pampering and a staff you know enjoys providing unsurpassed service everyday. It's really quite unique, not to mention memorably romantic. Thank...

The property was beautiful and the staff were wonderful. We were looking for a more intimate location versus the typical large busy resort. We were hopeful this was the place and it turned out to be exactly what we were looking for. Beautiful location, very friendly/helpful staff and the meals were absolutely amazing. Will definitely come back.

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....
