My sister and I planned our first trip together to Costa Rica. We decided to stay at Villas Sol all inclusive. We couldn't have made a better choice! The staff Jerry, Maureen, Kevin, and Dan were all amazing! Pura Vida!

Check in time slow. Requested early check-in 2 months in advance for the group. Denied. $25.00 charge (not mandatory, you can sit in lobby or take an overpriced taxi to town) while waiting for a room to use the pool, eat and have drinks is a reasonable cost but, seems like they strive for this fee by making check in...

One thing is true about this resort: There are lots of hills. Be prepared to walk up and down hills to and from your room if you're staying in one of the villas. My stay was in Villa 55-1. It was a very comfortable 2 bedroom, 2 baths, with kitchen, living room and balcony across the front with exits from... More

Feel like paying extra for everything? Then this is the place for you. WiFi is $25 every 2 days, and you can only use your device .... at the pool? By the way, every single place we stopped had free WiFi, after all, this is 2015! How about a local phone call from your room? A great deal at $1... More

The hotel was old and plain, the beach was not very nice. Although the food was pretty good, it got old (rice and beans were offered every meal). You have to take a "shuttle" to the beach, which is pretty dangerous since the drivers dont realize you can fly out at any moment and go pretty fast. And of course,... More

We originally had reservations at a hotel in Playa Coco but were told our room was unavailable, but not to worry. They had a wonderful alternative for us...Villas Sol! We were skeptical at first but were pleasantly surprised. Villas Sol provided breath taking scenery of the ocean, clean, spacious accommodations, attentive staff and a terrific breakfast. Since we only stayed... More

My husband and i stayed at Villas Sol and LOVED it so much we purchased a one bedroom villa! When we arrived, our room wasn't ready, which was really no big deal because it gave us a chance to go to the local market and purchase groceries. Because we were already familiar with the "RCI/Worldmark way" (it's less expensive to... More
