Overview

View of Property at Villa Buena Onda - Adults Only

Offering eight bedrooms that span two stories, Villa Buena Onda is an adults-only boutique hotel catering to couples seeking a romantic getaway. Situated in a 10,000-square-foot mansion, the hotel is open, spacious and perfectly blends Balinese and Mexican architectural styles and decor to create a unique atmosphere. The property includes 2.5 acres of dry tropical forest that overlooks Papagayo Bay. The greens and blues of Costa Rican nature are the backdrops for the property's two-tier swimming pool made of natural stone. The garden's orange and pink hues are just as beautiful and provide the perfect spot to take a leisurely walk or read your favorite book, and the view of the sunset can't be missed.

Your romantic getaway must include at least one stop at Secreto Spa. Hidden near the Playas del Coco, the spa is accessible through a manicured garden that offers plenty of privacy for the spa. The adults-only hotel features minimal decor that provides a sense of peace while remaining elegant. The spa offers several types of couples' massages, including traditional Swedish or deep tissue options, or if you prefer, try a unique bamboo massage. Sessions are available for 50 or 90 minutes. If you are visiting the spa alone, try a reflexology session or a manicure, pedicure and facial combo. A lovers' package is available for couples who wish to enjoy wine, fruit and cheese during their sessions.

Perhaps one of the biggest perks of booking a stay at Villa Buena Onda is that all meals are included in the price. Nya Restaurant offers both local and international cuisine in a romantic setting fit for fine dining. The chef uses locally sourced, fresh ingredients in every dish, which can be made to order based on availability. From chicken nachos to fish tacos for lunch and stuffed Portobello mushrooms to baby back ribs dinner, there is something for nearly everyone on the Nya Restaurant menu. Cocktails and a snack menu are available throughout the day, and the restaurant can create meals that are gluten-free, vegetarian or adhere to other special dietary requirements.

Other amenities at the all-inclusive Villa Buena Onda include an ocean-facing yoga deck, tortilla-making classes, local art classes, a wide range of adventure tours and shuttle services to Playas del Coco, Playa Ocotal and Playa Hermosa.

"I am not sure how or where to start. My vacation was heaven, The staff went out of their way to make sure that everyone's needs were taken care of. The staff went above and beyond what was expected of them. Because of that our vacation was stress free. I can't thank everyone of the staff enough. If you are planing a trip to Costa Rica do it first class at Buena Onda. "

"My husband and I are celebrating our 70th birthdays this year. We wanted to spend time with our children, their spouse and grandchildren - ages 3 to 19 years of age. After many weeks of searching for a place we could gather to celebrate our family. We found the perfect place where we ate all meals together every day for 8 days. We played in the two pools and were served by Christian who created any drink we wanted - from water, cokes, to fun beach drinks! We were pampered with any activity you could think of by the incredible staff - especially Dianna. They were personable, joyful, professional, incredible!!!!!! We have a grandson who is lactose intolerant and another grandson with cerebral palsy (tube fed). Our personal chef met all of our needs and then some. The presentation of the food, as well as the flexibility of meal times, was marvelous. The staff booked all the excursions we wanted to do and everyone was seamless. We went canopy zip lining, four wheel riding, white water river rafting, jungle raft riding, massages right at the villa - anything we wanted to do. The villa was immaculately cleaned every single day. The staff actually did our laundry (not just towels, but clothing). The security was amazing - all night security guard just to make sure all are safe. Every bedroom had an incredible view. The beds were amazing comfortable. The view from the porches of the villa are breathtaking! We overlooked the spectacular, lush,hillside with the Pacific Ocean in full view. The people of Costa Rica are the kindest people! They smiled and greeted us wherever we went. The little village (just a 10 minute walk into town) gives you the flavor of Costa Rica - bright colors and the beauty of black sand beaches. We could not have wanted a better experience and will definitely return to VILLA BUENA ONDO! If you contemplating a villa stay in Costa Rica VILLA BUENA ONDA is the perfect vacation to relax, enjoy life and be pampered beyond your wildest imagination!!!!!!! "

" Our stay with friends at Buena Villa Onda in January was an incredible experience. Our rooms were lovely and well maintained, the views beautiful and service superb. Gabrielle prepared wonderful meals and Chritian,our bartender, took wonderful care of us. The staffs awareness of our needs and comforts and their friendly, gracious manner was a delight. They laughed with us, endured our teasing, and made us feel so welcome. Dayana was so organized and in control. Our boat trip to our own private island and the rafting trip were well planned and very enjoyable due to the efforts and personalities of the staff - such fun - no hassles for us. We also appreciated your protectiveness in making sure of our safety at all times. We were happy to have a security guard on staff making us feel even safer. The staff was incredible - so personable. They worked so well together attending to our every need. They made our stay everything we could have hoped for and more. Our Costa Rican vacation was one of the best ever with our friends. We all felt a special connection with Dayana and the staff. Thank you!"
