Adults Only Boutique Hotel

The adults only experience in our clients’ words below:

We stayed at Villa Buena Onda for 3 nights on our honeymoon and it was the perfect way to relax. The food options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner were all fantastic. We ate to our hearts delight and loved every single meal. -August 2018
Delicious Food, Great Options, Incredible ServiceTripAdvisor User: John B
... The view is a million dollar view, you can't get anywhere else, and is available to see from the lobby, the pool, and your room! The staff is always there to help you with any questions and to serve you. We even got a cooking lesson from the Chef! The food at every meal is 5 star. We didn't want to eat anywhere else. ... This was the highlight of our trip.
Don’t stay anywhere else!Sharon S
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Villa Buena Onda. The property is very small - only 8 rooms - which allows the staff to really get to interact with you and offer very personalized service. (...) You will not be disappointed by your stay at Villa Buena Onda! -August 2018

Perfect for Honeymoons & Anniversaries

Villa Buena Onda is perfect for couple getaways as we provide the perfect adults only environment of relaxation and romance.

It was perfect for a honeymoon- quite, safe, secluded, romantic, and intimate with only 8 rooms with other guests. The food and drink was wonderful with a wide variety of options.
Amazing honeymoon destination!Aubrei B
My husband and I came to VBO for our honeymoon and before we left, we decided to return for our first anniversary. As I sit at lunch on our last full day, I'm looking at an amazing scenery, with a belly full of delicious food.

... 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.

Everything I tried was amazing - there was lots to choose from, and all of the options were delicious. The restaurant does a great job at blending local flavor with my favorite dishes from the US. The service was also great; each of the waiters spoke English and made an effort to get to know you. Overall, it was a five-star experience!
