Adults Only Hotel in Papagayo, Costa Rica


Adults-only is an uncommon policy, but we think it’s important to create an environment suited to sophisticated travelers. An all-inclusive, adults-only hotel in Costa Rica is not just uncommon, but almost impossible to come by. We, however, decided to listen to our guests and offer a custom all-inclusive package that covers not just your bar credit, but all the transfers, and two of Villa Buena Onda’s signature tours.


Here you’ll find the peace, tranquility, and romance you deserve while on a vacation. Villa Buena Onda is an ideal place for honeymoons, anniversaries, or just a special trip to reconnect with your special someone. Take advantage of the wide range of services offered, designed with adults in mind.


Our focus on serving adults is reflected in our property and services, such as:

  • Private dinner for two in the romantic setting of our garden
  • A mature, culinary restaurant menu
  • Sensual, couple-focused rooms
  • A tranquil, ocean-facing yoga deck
  • Rejuvenating spa, which includes treatments for couples
  • Tortilla-making classes
  • Local art classes
  • Shuttle services to three beaches: Playas del Coco, Playa Hermosa, and Playa Ocotal
  • And many tours, such as sailing, diving, fishing, and hiking, to name a few.
  • Service: “Friendly, Attentive, and Genuinely Welcoming”


As our guests like to emphasize time and again in their reviews; with only eight suites, an intimate and personalized experience is guaranteed. Before you arrive, you can rely on our staff to respond to your questions about tours and activities in the area, or to make any special arrangements like a private, romantic dinner for two to celebrate a special occasion you need in advance. And once you come through the Villa’s gates, we’ll make you feel like a royalty.

We relaxed by the pool, swam in Playa Hermosa, explored Playas del Coco, went on an awesome surfing & hiking boat excursion, enjoyed happy hour every day, spent early mornings in our hammock listening to the monkeys play, & left VBO tan, full, happy, & filled w/incredible memories.

Adult-only experience at Villa Buena Onda

At our villa, vacations seem to last longer: time moves slowly, letting you relax on your terms. Soak up the sun on our chic sun deck or take in the ocean view from our luxurious, two-tier pool. Mingle with other interesting guests at the poolside bar at happy hour or, if you prefer, disengage completely in a hammock with a good book. With only seven rooms, the ambiance is always peaceful and intimate.


Located just outside of Playas del Coco, the villa is close enough to walk into town to explore the shops and experience the beach town ambiance. Still, it is far enough that you get a really peaceful, away-from-it-all feeling. Situated on the hillside, it boasts with a gorgeous view of the ocean and islands. A steady ocean breeze will fill out your lazy afternoons, along with exquisite cocktails you can enjoy during happy hour at the pool bar.

... We have to say- this was the best part of our trip! Everyone was so accommodating and treated us like royalty. I liked that fact that they gave you your space, but were there if you needed anything. It was super private and romantic and we loved every second of our stay.
