Jan 28 - Feb 7, 2016 Just returned from 10 day all inclusive vacation. Pros and Cons of Resort Before we went we read good reviews and bad reviews. This resort is built on a hill and if you have issues walking it is not the resort for you. There is a trolley/van that goes around the resort to pick... More

We went on vacation for our first time to Costa Rica last week and had a great time. We stayed in the hotel, so I can't speak about the Villas, but found the rooms to be very nice. The room was plain, but very well maintained and everything worked properly. The views on the balcony were amazing! The beaches were... More

Paid a hefty deposit and since 25th October been paying off the package from our bank account. Still no package! Not even on their system! Now we... More

Temp was in the 90's. We stayed in the hotel. The beach was down hill. The truck shuttle is available but you have to wait and sometimes it takes awhile. We enjoyed looking for large iguanas on premises. There are howler monkeys in the trees by the beach. Entering the beach you will be approached by people trying to sell... More

This was our third visit to Villa Sol. It has been one of our favorite places to stay. The quality of food has improved steadily. The views are stunning. The staff are friendly and go out of their way to help; they truly embody the spirit we have expected from Costa Rica and why we keep coming back. Our only... More

Check in was cordial, greater they tried to get us on a tour of property for discounts was not pushy and initial experience was fine. We are in a 2br villa. Nice view, clean and comfortable.with the way the first few days have... More

Arrived tired to face the legendary check in process. No welcoming drink. No help with luggage. Not at all what we had hoped for. There is a BUT.......we than went on to have a superb holiday. Room was clean with a brilliant view. They changed it for us quite happily as the initial one was less good. Staff were fantastic,... More

This was our first vacation in Costa Rica. Our room was very clean and our maid Marybell kept it that way everyday. The food was delicious, not as many choices as other places we have been but always enough (the fish was very salty). There are not enough praise I can give our bartender's Marco and Ivan they are AMAZING.... More

Food was sort of blan and the drinks had very little booze put in them.....you could not get a buzz drinking there. Hotel is built on a steep hill and... More
