Why Stay with Us?

7 Reasons to Visit Us


Unique Concept — at Villa Buena Onda we create a FEELING and EXPERIENCE for our guests. At 8 rooms, we are ultra boutique. We have an unmatched staff-to-guest ratio, are adults-only, all meals are included and our location is ideally secluded-yet-close to the action of the region. Other properties may share some part of this equation, but all together, there’s nothing like us! We are a rare gem, loved by our guests who seek what we offer.

Location — at just 27 minutes from the LIR airport, you will save precious vacation time with an easy trip to our doorstep.  There’s plenty to see and do in our area too, so you won’t miss out on anything….except a long road trip on bumpy roads.

Service — many hotels say it, but few truly deliver.  Most of our team has been with us for our entire decade in business, so you will be treated like a family member returning home for the holidays.  The family vibe shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, given that many of our team ARE blood relatives. But don’t take it from us, read our guest reviews.

Meals Included —  We have worked hard to fine tune our kitchen in order to serve consistently good food that pleases the diverse palates of our guests. We offer both locally inspired and sourced cuisine as well as flavorful and multicultural fare. Between our classic menu and daily specials, the varied cuisine keeps our guests delighted. In recent years our restaurant has earned multiple TripAdvisor awards  and has become popular with non-guests as well.

Connect With Locals — we do our best to keep VBO feeling “tico”.  We want guests to depart having experienced some connection to local people, culture and flavor during their stay.

Plenty To Do…Or NOT — we offer a handful of on-site activities for those who like to keep busy and learn a thing or two. There is also a lot to see and do in our immediate area, starting with three very different beaches.  For guests whose ideal stay consists of ambling between their room, the pool, the spa and dining area, reading, sunbathing, relaxing, enjoying a cocktail and taking in the view…well, that’s just fine too.

Peace — VBO is a place to unwind and RELAX. You won’t hear loud music, see melted ice cream at some crowded buffet, nor see many guests up much past 9pm.  If you are looking for excitement, action and kids running around…you won’t find that here. If you want serenity, quiet time with people you care about and perhaps some solitude, we are your oasis.
