Saw specials for this resort in the daily newspaper in Toronto and felt compelled to post. My late friend and I were there end of Jan 2014 for 2 weeks. We stayed in the "super saver" villas. You certainly get what you paid for. Dirty, small, and in need of a major overall. We ended up cleaning the balcony ourselves... More

My husband and I have visited Costa Rica, and specifically Villas Sol resort, twice. We enjoyed it so much we purchased a time share at this location. Service is first class, food is amazing, and there is plenty to do to stay busy, or plenty of ways to relax if you prefer to vacation and "just chill" on a beach.... More

My husband and I spent our honeymoon here in October 2014. We had a two bedroom, one bathroom condo and it was amazing and clean. It had amazing views of the ocean. The staff was friendly and helpful. There was a lot of day trips and activities for us to sign up for. We opted for the all inclusive package.... More

Good for 1-2 days, right next door condo vac Lacosta is a better option however. Has Infinity pools, full body chocolate wrap at an affordable price. Food got a little repetitive for us vegetarians. Great Mojitos in the evening with a beautiful view in Villa sol though!

They shouldn't call this a beach resort considering it's a 20 minute challenging walk even for the fit. There are shuttles but you have to be willing to waste your time waiting for one. Once on the beach you get accosted immediately by beach vendors wanting to take to you on tours, revising their prices each time they see you.... More

Costa Rica is such an amazing country and this resort is different from your usual all inclusive. It's unique layout (on a steep hill) make it interesting. There are shuttles that take you everywhere. People are very nice, Marcos at the main bar is fantastic, food is great and so are the drinks. rooms are very well kept and clean,... More

Rooms were nice, but there was no hot water until the last day we were there. Maintenance came by one day and told us it was as hot as it would get. The activities available were good, but don't understand why main pool is so far away from rooms. Shuttles were plentiful except for the last night we were there... More

We were there off season so only one restaurant was open which served (3) buffet style menus each day, this on an all inclusive package. There is no town to speak of, if you like outdoor activities we took atv's through the mountains to a couple small beaches, zip lines through the canopy, but there was not much else to... More

The resort was amazing. The only complaint we had was the shuttle was not frequent at all. The reviews about the hilliness of the place are not lies. It is extremely hilly. Especially if you are in the villas. Although it was hilly and we really would have preferred to have a shuttle more often than we did, it was... More
