~ we arrived April 7th and left the 14th, all things considered, it was a great vacation, but that was primarily our own doing... our arrival was not what I'd expected, they were not welcoming or helpful, my first impression was not a good one... ~ only after meeting Gilberth on the beach the first evening did it all turn...

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

4 of us visited for a week this last week in March. I traveled to Villas Sol having read online some of the reviews prior, so was prepared for anything. We had a 2 bedroom condo (villa #63) which has a nice balcony view of the bay. Tip- Be prepared to walk (lots of hills), however the shuttle/trucks do come... 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. The maintenance staff are not which makes trying to communicate to them in my broken Spanish very difficult. Tried multiple times with speaking with the front desk staff and them sending the maintenance staff... More

Four adult travelers stayed in 2 hotel rooms with amazing views and roomy balconies. Rooms were fantastic, centrally located for pools, food, views, shuttle pickup, cleaned daily and even got fresh towels shaped into swans. The A/C provided sufficient cooling as long as we kept the drapes closed and the bathroom door shut. We did not have coffee in our... More

It bothers me to read all the negative reviews on this place, the reviews were that bad that I was nervous upon my arrival to only find myself ashamed to have listened to people, who obviously love to complain. Let me set the record straight. This resort was absolutely beautiful, the scenery and views were breathtaking. The rooms were more... More

Overall we had a great stay at Villas Sol. The pools were nice, the staff was friendly (mostly) and the food was good. We had a beautiful view from our Villa overlooking the ocean and could watch the sunset while the kids played in our pool. It was very nice to be able to just walk down to the restaurant... More

Horrible experience, on our first night we encountered cockroaches on the pillows and the walls. We were already sleeping when this happened. We called the front desk at 11 pm. They came with a can, sprayed the room and said: All good. Of course I was not accepting that kind of service so I requested for another room. It took... More

This hotel shouldn't claim to be good for children - beside of the possibility to have a travel bed and small children areas in the main pool son with a ball and a couple of water toys, there wasn't anything interesting for our 22 months old son. No child care service as well. In the first restaurant in Coco Beach,... More
