We stayed in the condo/villa area (57-4). No towels upon arrival but an inventory list was present. We called the desk and reported the lack but when we returned hours later there were still no towels. Since I had just changed a tire in the dust I called again and then showered and used paper towels to dry. The bath... More

Very comprehensive and beautiful resort. The staff was exceptionally helpful, although available staff was limited. Food is average. The views and friendliness are the best things about this resort. I would avoid the all inclusive, if possible because the food is average. There are some great restaurants on the beach.

The staff was friendly and responsive to our every need. Before you book a stay here, realize that this place is not on the beach. You can take a free shuttle to the public beach or walk to it. Not being on a beach gives the place a different feel than one that is actually on a beach. We stayed... More

Villa Sol was very nice. I stayed in the hotel. The staff was very helpful. I would like to especially thank Jerry for helping me get my wife's phone back from the taxi.

Villa Sol is a great place to bring your family or just your spouse. It is a very Beautiful destination in Costa Rica. Only 25 min from the Liberia Airport. The beach is one of the most beautiful I have seen. Black sand from the Volcano ingrained with the white sands. Plenty of excursions to please everyone in your group.... More

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon in November. We were a bit hesitant as it was an amazing deal purchased on Groupon during the tail end of their rainy season but the deal (by Travel by Jen) was too good to pass up.

First off, PLEASE, management of Villa Sol, DO NOT respond with the standard "we take your comments very seriously" response prior to reading. It makes these reviews appear unimportant to you folks as we are the people who pay to stay at your establishment and take the time to post the reviews...
