We really enjoyed our time at the resort. All the staff was extremely pleasant. The view from our room was spectacular! It was or first all inclusive. We enjoyed the food and loved the drinking all night. However, if you are looking for seafood on the buffet you won't find it here. That was okay with us add we don't... More

I'm not going to talk about the views or the scenery or any of that. It's Costa Rica, of course it is going to be beautiful and there are excursions and all that but as far as the hotel goes, stay anywhere else besides this. I have heard the Hilton up the road is great. This place just seems like... More

I am very tolerant and like things to be off beat but avoid this place .. Number one complaint is that the room, in addition to being dowdy and frankly ugly, is filthy. When we arrived I was aghast at how dirty it was ... Rug in the living room had clearly not been cleaned in a very long time.... More

Wow I have to say the experience was awful. We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo. Beds were uncomfortable as hell. We had a bunch of ants in our kitchen. They came and cleaned everyday but did not get of the ant problem in the room. The food sucked. Geez they only have 1 buffet restaurant not much selection. If... More

the view is spectacular. The shuttle service to the beach runs frequently. Everyone is friendly. The buffet food was just ok. They say breakfast starts at 6am, but that is only cereal and toast, the rest of the food comes out at 7am. Some days we only got bath towels and some days only hand towels. Internet only available in... More

Saw specials for this resort in the daily newspaper in Toronto and felt compelled to post. My late friend and I were there end of Jan 2014 for 2 weeks. We stayed in the "super saver" villas. You certainly get what you paid for. Dirty, small, and in need of a major overall. We ended up cleaning the balcony ourselves... More

My husband and I have visited Costa Rica, and specifically Villas Sol resort, twice. We enjoyed it so much we purchased a time share at this location. Service is first class, food is amazing, and there is plenty to do to stay busy, or plenty of ways to relax if you prefer to vacation and "just chill" on a beach.... More

Good for 1-2 days, right next door condo vac Lacosta is a better option however. Has Infinity pools, full body chocolate wrap at an affordable price. Food got a little repetitive for us vegetarians. Great Mojitos in the evening with a beautiful view in Villa sol though!
