A custom, exclusive ONDA experience for you & your loved ones

With direct flights from 18+ major North American cities, Guanacaste (LIR) Airport is a growing international hub and accessible wedding destination. Arrive easily to our Playa Grande location, just 70min from LIR, without the headache of long travel days. We’ll help coordinate transportation!

Let us make your life easier! We work directly with you to coordinate the entire trip – from the moment you land to the moment you leave, we’ll help bring your beach wedding vision to life, including customizing in-house events, meals, and activities to your liking. Welcome pool party? Reception dance party? We got you!

Unlike booking a block of rooms at a large hotel, we offer the unique opportunity to reserve an entire hotel just for your special wedding event. A wedding buyout at ONDA means all hotel spaces are completely privatized to create a comfortable, intimate, exclusive environment to enjoy with your loved ones.

Our friendly, passionate team members are what make ONDA, ONDA! They’ll make sure you feel right at home and that all your group’s needs are met throughout your stay. They’re here to support you and ensure this event is everything you’ve dreamed of! Look to our staff to learn more about Costa Rican culture and local life.

With a designated Tours & Activities team on-site, you can seamlessly mix in a sense of adventure to your wedding trip! Give your guests the opportunity to enjoy local experiences on their own, or coordinate group excursions for the full party, like a group surf lesson or sunset catamaran cruise, all easily accessible from our Playa Grande location.

Love from past ONDA couples

Cami & Cheke • Nov. 2023 | Beach ceremony • Reception dinner • DJ Dance party

“We celebrated our wedding with family and friends at ONDA and it was the best decision!! The ONDA team is the best, always attentive if we needed anything. The Beer Garden and the bar are a very nice space, with delicious food and drinks at a good price. Plus René and the bar team make very good drinks!

The hotel is steps from the beach, and we had the opportunity to surf with the ONDA Surf team (Javi and Oli)! The rooms are comfortable and clean, the pool perfect and common areas equipped. Allie accompanied us throughout this experience and took care of the details of the wedding, it was beautiful!”

Lillian & Alex • Dec. 2023 | Welcome pool party • Beach ceremony

“We bought out ONDA for our close crew of friends for our celebration of love this past weekend. The ONDA staff were amazing. They helped organize shuttles for some of our guests (not even staying at the hotel), a group surf lesson, and pulled off our epic pool party with no problems. Everyone raved about the food and beverage, and even when things were hectic, they pulled everything off without a hitch. I worked very closely with Allie these past few months leading up to the event and was so impressed by her organization, attention to detail, level of accommodation, and care for our guests. By the end, I felt like Allie and everyone at the hotel were our friends and we were just hanging out. The rooms themselves were super comfortable – and we were able to comfortably fit our group of 32 with room to spare. I would recommend the ONDA to anyone looking to host a non-traditional celebration or wedding or event in an intimate yet very cool and trendy space. Pura Vida!”
