This was the second hotel my husband and I stayed at while in Costa Rica, and we absolutely adored this place! From the minute we arrived, Shelly welcomed us and we felt as if we were at a "home away from home." We felt so welcomed and truly cared for the entire time. The food was amazing. Anything that we...

My fiancé and I stayed at Villa Buena Onda and we could not have been more impressed! From the location, to the atmosphere, food, and service - everything was top notch. More importantly, the staff treated us like family. We'll definitely be back!

Where do I begin? Villa Buena Onda is absolute paradise or "pura vida" (pure life) as the Costa Rican saying goes! The accomodations, service, scenery, food and drinks are worth every single dime. Shelley, Jennifer, Sergio, Carlos and all of the staff there go out of their way to make the villa not only your home away from home but...

From the time we arrived June 8 until the time we left, 2 weeks later - we enjoyed every single bit of Villa Bueno Onda!! This vacation was so relaxing.. I came home in the Pura Vida ether, mostly because of our stay at VBO. The best offering of this place is that it is small with only 8 rooms,...

My wife took us here for our 2nd Wedding Anniversary and it was SPECTACULAR!!! We arranged for transport to the resort from the airport (25 minutes) and from the moment we arrived on property (being greeted with a freshly juiced fruit drink from the Welcoming Staff), to surprising my wife with the Master Suite (she thought we were getting a...

This hotel and the staff are exceptional. I traveled solo and was looking for peace and quiet and Villa Buena Onda exceeded my expectations. The hotel is a quiet oasis. Perched on a hill overlooking the ocean, the views are beautiful from the rooms, the pool and the dining area. There are only eight rooms and most guests were out...

I had very high hopes for this location from the other reviews I read. The location is very beautiful. The rooms, grounds, and staff are wonderful. The food is AMAZING! I gave the location an average rating for a few small hiccups during our stay. My wife and I booked a 90 minute couples massage and when we arrived the...

I surprised my wife with a trip to Costa Rica for our 10th wedding anniversary. As any good Travel Duck, I did a lot of research before booking the trip. I wanted a destination which was a short drive from the airport, all inclusive meals, close to the beach, nice views, luxurious, and most importantly amazing service. Villa Buena Onda...

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.

“Malinche room 204. Better than the Master Bedroom in our opinion since we had a private covered balcony on the quieter side of the villa.”
