My girlfriend and I went and we loved our time in Costa Rica. We went zip lining, snorkeling, kayaking, and fed monkeys. All of those activities were great. The hotel had really awesome views of Playa Hermosa. The staff was great. Our bartender Daniel was great. He was very helpful on advice on where to go or what to see... More

I had read so many reviews on Villas Sol that I was a bit skeptical about our trip. Boy, was I surprised. The views are spectacular but unless you see them first hand you will not appreciate the scenery. For us, it was love at first sight. We arrived at the airport and greeted by a staff member. We were... More

This resort is not for anyone with physical challenges as it is very steep and although they have shuttles it still requires good balance and strong legs. That said the villas are very lovely with big windows offering great light and in varying degrees wonderful ocean and mountain views. I* found the management to be very accommodating and was so...

My family stayed here for our summer vacation. We stayed in the hotel part - not in the Villas. We had a great trip. The hotel has beautiful views and the staff was very helpful and courteous.

I had an amazing time in Costa Rica. It was my first time visiting and it was more than I expected. The staff is very friendly. By the third day most of the staff knew my name and I felt like I was at home. The rooms were clean. I recommend the getting a villa. The first night i stayed... More

I'll keep this short. Amazing scenery, clean rooms, good food (at a la carte), and friendly staff. The buffet was nothing special but then again, who expects anything from a buffet? You are also close enough where you can go into town.

I stayed at this place as part of a group on a SCUBA trip. When we got our rooms, mine was about 20 feet from the front desk. I didn't think it was a problem until we tried to go to sleep. There was loud talking until midnight every night. What's worse is that every morning at 5 AM the... More

but a pity the food didn't live up to much. It was an amazing place and the staff were amazing throughout. The room service seemed to be takeaway food and was delivered as such which was a surprise, considering it was all inclusive and this was the only thing we paid for we expected some proper plates etc. but oh...
