I have stayed at several all inclusive resorts and by far the Villas Sol is one of the best vacation deals around. The staff was very nice and always ready to assist us. Even better was the dinning at the resort. We found a great deal for this resort online by searching for "$389 Villas Sol Hotel and Beach Resort... More

We booked an all inclusive package at this hotel for late Dec through new year. What a mistake! We left mid vacation for a far better place in Joya, Costa Rica. The place is far from the beach (which is below avg.). You've to take a shuttle to get there. Its an all inclusive resort, but trust me, its a... More

Went last December with my family, it was recommended by IAT Costa Rica. We arrived too early at San Jose by Condor and it was a 4 hours ride, so we got to the hotel around 11:00 am but they gave us the rooms right away, so that was a plus for us. My son loved it and we had... More

On arrival, my wife Susan and I were greeted by Harold in the hotel lobby. The surprising thing about Harold is that he took the time to understand our particulars so that he could be as helpful as possible to enable us to enjoy our first and only visit to Central America. He made many suggestions on enjoying the resort... More

We were absolutly amazed by this breath taking location!! Hospitality was perfect, we can't wait to go again in 2 years. The beach was our favorite every morning to see sunrise and to watch the sunset, so romantic would definately recommend this location to love birds......

The staff was rude and unavailable. The food was bland and not indicative of costa rican cuisine. They charge you extra at every step, and provide you with nothing they promise you in advance. We stayed at several places throughout the country and had a lovely time, don't stay at villas sol and have your opinion of this beautiful land... More

The natural beauty of Costa Rica is breathtaking. The women and men who served the tourists and guests were wonderful, humble and attentive. The all inclusive portion of the package was sub-standard. The food, while plentiful, was rather bland. Juices and adult beverages were diluted with too much water. Entertainment was nonexistent. I will go to Costa Rica again. I... More

I stayed at the all inclusive Villas Sol in Costa Rica, Dec.2-6, 2014. I checked in at reception near the entrance to Villas Sol where an imprint of my credit card and signature were taken. This imprint and signature was then transferred to the upper hotel reception. I did not have any Villas Sol charges billed to my visa when... More

Best regards Ms. Caren B We are really concern about this situation which never happened before at Villas Sol Beach. We´ve already contacted VISA in order to track the failed transactions, however and as you know we don’t keep your credit card information once you left and this is for your own security.

I'll start with the positives, because there certainly were some, but the overall experience was negative, so I will close with those. The food was actually pretty good - especially for an all-inclusive arrangement. Perhaps this was due to our staying during the peak season, but everything was very fresh - especially the salad options, with a small but decent... More
