Great views from the room but... Food was just OK, A/C was not working, cold water for shower, not beachfront (you have to ride a shuttle up and down a very steep hill), pool areas are too small, not enough chairs by the pool and on the beach, no WI-FI in the room and you must pay almost $10 per...

The hotel and time share options were great for those who are seeking to have a peaceful vacation. The rooms were stellar, well kept and accessible to the dining area. The staff and transportation team worked well together to ensure guests had a good stay. The food was great and the drink were tasty as well. I highly recommend this... More

Stayed 7/18 to 7/24. I would give Villa Sol average because there is no rating between poor and average. Staffs: Victor was a real nice guy and, the ladies at the concierge were not helpful. Shuttles were slow, someone already mentioned if you were at the beach late night (8:30 between 9:00) you could be sitting for a while, my... More

I really don't know where to began and I cannot believe that I am having to leave a bad review about a vacation experience. We were so excited at first and looking forward to our stay at an all inclusive resort. We were even more excited when we were greeted by the concierge service personnel, Victor and promise that we... More

This place is a concrete jungle baked in the morning till sun sets. They have touts at all the speed bumps in Playa Hermosa and on the beach. They have high pressure condo sales and vacation sales which they can make sound like a dream if you are enticed to a (SALES?) presentation. They forget to tell you about the... More

Arriving in the heat of the summer, we were treated to a hotel room and welcomed by the staff. The staff was friendly, helpful and took care of all our needs. The resort is laid out very nicely with shuttle service at intervals of 5 minutes to all parts of the resorts. Walter the restaurant Captain was extremely helpful and... More

I stayed here a few months ago with timeshare points. The pros: Our room was very spacious, clean and had a beautiful view of the ocean. Kitchen was well equipped, and housekeeping did an excellent job of cleaning our room everyday! The staff, for the most part, was very friendly and to a lesser degree, helpful. There were timeshare representatives... More

We really enjoyed staying here. The food on the resort was kinda boring, but outside the resort - omg awesome. We really didn't spend a lot of time at the resort itself because we did excursions every day and just wound down in the pool after. The room itself was gorgeous and the balcony was huge. It was a little... More
