Villa Buena Onda was the destination for our fortieth wedding anniversary. It exceeded our expectations. The property was wonderfully built, with great views and wonderful staff. We had no recommendations for any improvements. Food was perfect, service even better. Clean comfortable and in a great setting.

You just know they care. Food: The presentation was astonishing. The flavors extraordinary. Location: Serene atmosphere with a view that will set you free. Room: Lovely. But I have to say that I have rarely had such a luxurious nights sleep. The bedding is delicious. Must, must, must experience this!

VBO is a wonderful hotel ! The rooms, food and personalized service are top shelf. At the front desk, Shelley and Cesar are very professional and customer focused.

My husband and I visited for our anniversary and will definitely be back. We stayed in the honeymoon suite and it was simply incredible, the view alone was breathtaking. I can't say enough about how great the staff was. We were treated like royalty as soon as we stepped in! The food was amazing, everything was fresh and prepared well....
