From the moment we booked with Shelley at VBO to the minute they (sadly) dropped us off at the Liberia Airport we were treated like family! Absolutely the most wonderful staff - very helpful, honest and knowledgeable. Our suite was beautiful and we loved the storage available. The food was to die for at every meal and the drinks were...

This is an excellent place to get away and relax but also close enough to be shuttled into the midst of things. The food at the Villa Buena Onda is excellent (I never had a bad meal) and staff is friendly and I feel I got to know them. Sergio wad our go to guy for excursions. He was excellent...

My wife and I stayed here for the last half of our visit to Costa Rica. After staying in Arenal, near the volcano, we enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere that Villa Buena Onda provided - especially the pool and beaches. The food was fantastic and the service was exceptional. There are a couple items I would try to fix: 1. Noises...

We recently stayed here for our 20th wedding anniversary from April 22-25 before transitioning to La Fortuna. We arrived later in the evening on the 22nd and were immediately greeted at the front by the staff with drinks and swiftly delivered our luggage up to our rooms while the evening concierge Caesar gave us a tour.

My husband and I went for our 10th anniversary. Between the amazing food and staff it was exactly what we were looking for. Shelley booked out excursions with care and they were amazing. It was the perfect mix of everything. We hope to return. Pura Vida!

Book this hotel if you are looking for a private villa feel, without the price. Super modern amenieties with great service and good food equal an amazing stay. If you can book on non peak times it may feel as though you are the only resident in the hotel. We enjoyed many "private" meals and pool time by avoiding the...

The hotel is about 1-2km from the main drag of restaurants, stores, and bars in Coco Beach, but I actually liked getting away from that area, and enjoying the privacy and amenities of the hotel. The staff are polite, extremely kind, speak English very well, and do whatever they can to make your stay enjoyable, Rooms are spacious, have flat...

As we were on our honeymoon, we wanted smaller, more intimate places to stay where we could relax but have options for activities nearby. This place was perfect! The staff was also wonderful and accommodating. The food was excellent and the room was very comfortable. I would recommend visiting during a time that does not overlap with spring breakers or...
