The entire staff was so friendly and welcoming! They went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect. It was so great to be...

Minutes after booking, your personalized journey begins. I arrived via hotel shuttle around 5 pm, greeted by smiles, a mango smoothie and a beautifully appointed living room style lobby: framing a jaw-dropping view of their infinity pool, miles of trees saluting the sun setting over the papagayo coast in the distance. I was handed my room key (an actual key,...

Initially surprised and slightly worried as we went from airport to hotel. Although I would call this spot more of an all inclusive B & B than boutique hotel, but all in all after a few days there we were charmed by the isolation and the staff. Set way above the beaches in a residential Barrio area, it turned around...

Just came back from a week at Villa Buena Onda with family/friends. This place is amazing! The views, the staff, the meals, the drinks, the actual villa! The pictures don't do it justice. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure you have a great time and your every need is met. The housekeeping staff keeps your room and...

This hidden jewel in the middle of paradise far exceeded all our expectations. We just spent four nights at this exquisite villa and could not have been more pleased. The rooms are large, clean and have amazing views! But more than the beauty of the villa - it really is the people there that made our trip to Playas del...

My wife and I returned to Villa Buena Onda this past weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary in their newly completed Master Suite. We absolutely loved it!

My girlfriends and I stayed at this beautiful resort for a couple of nights. We LOVED it. The staff was amazingly friendly, the food was 5 star quality and the rooms were spacious and clean.
