We had a great time here, the walk to the room/pool/restaurant/beach is quite a hike you need really good shoes and some cardio stamina, they do have a jitney which feels like an eternity to wait for, but when you are tired after a long day you... wait.. Not much to do in this area, Co Co beach is much... More

The trip started with a staff member who claimed to give us information about the resort. She ended up trying to pressure us into going to a presentation for a timeshare, to which point I had to say we are not interested several times. The timeshare itself was very nice, however be ready for a climb to your room or... More

Poor hospitality, horrible food and old and careless installations, the only good thing was the beach and the beautiful weather! The staff is under trained, they don't have the tools, nor the knowledge to help you the way you are paying for. Button line they got stuck in the 80s when they where the only hotel in playa Hermosa.

The best part about this hotel is the grounds and landscaping. The view from the hotel balcony is stunning and the grounds have beautiful flowers all over. The pool is nice, although there could have been more shade, especially because all the shaded seats were almost always taken. The main dining area is beautiful and the view of the ocean... More

This resort is at best very sub standard. The rooms are ok, clean and well maintained. That is all the positive I can say. They have two restuarants on is only open on WED, Friday and Saturday. It has a nice menu until the waiter comes over and says that most of the items are not available. The other restaurant... More

Better than I expected after reading some of the reviews. It is a a duel layout, with a hotel and (timeshare?) villas to choose from. It is a large property located on a hillside, but no fear, as small shuttles constantly patrol, shuffling guests to where ever they are going. Hotel rooms are rather basic, but certainly adequate and comfortable.... More

Villas Sol Hotel & Beach Resort is a very nice place with great views from most of the rooms in the hotel and many from the villas as well. The staff is amazing, very helpful and professional, very friendly and courteous. We stayed in the hotel on the top floor and had an awesome view of the bay/ocean. Many a... More

Our whole group (4 fifty-somethings and 5 twenty-somethings) enjoyed our stay at Villas Sol. We had two 2 bedroom villas right by each other and had plenty of room to host dinners for all 9 of us in either villa. The villas were almost at the top of the hill and it was quite a trek to the beach, but... More

Spacious room and nice bathroom built with solid stone. Food not much choice but most of the time quite good tasting. Some staff were friendly and helpful some stuff not so much. Didn't like constant travelling in shuttle when I wanted to go to beach or from beach, and the shuttle almost always made tour around all property which included... More

Just returned to USA after a great week at Villas Sol All-Inclusive Resort in Playa Hermosa Guanacaste Costa Rica. Had a great time that got better each day as we experienced something new about the property every day. They offer so much that at first we didn't know what to expect, and some of the reviewers had conflicting opinions, so... More
