I love the location of this resort- right on Play Hermosa which is one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. The rooms are on a hill so if you have mobility problems this might not be a good choice. They do have a shuttle to bring you down to the beach, restaurant, etc. There is a small grocery... More

Just got back from a 4 day stay, all inclusive at Villas Sol and to be quite honest they really need to step up their service and food to be rated as a 4 star hotel. We arrived almost at pm, the from desk girl, Juliana, needs to be more friendly, actually the whole front desk staff needs to improve... More

Stayed only one night as we were leaving the next day from the Liberia Airport. Very convenient as the hotel was only about 35 min away. Lovely bay setting but you are far from the beach., However, free shuttle runs often. Our room was in hotel 3rd floor on end. Nice view of small pool and the bay. Easy stroll... More

Just spend 4 nights/5 days at Villas Sol. It is a c+ location. They just miss the boat. The staff is very nice. Many are bi-lingual.
