This trip was amazing. the staff were very friendly. The food was good, with some good selection everyday. he only thing I would say is that getting around the resort could be a bit of a pain if you don't like to walk. But it didn't bother me one bit. I do like to use my legs. They also have... More

We stayed in a villa for one week. The villa had everything we needed however the entire place is in need of an updating. We had a hole on the outside of the villa which allowed a skunk, yes a skunk, full access to our villa. We informed the property manager but nothing was done to remedy the problem. We... More

If you are called by a promoter, make sure they are not sneakily signing you up for a Timeshare Tour. They put you up in the Hotel instead of the rooms they are offering you. The one redeeming factor was our Hostess/Waitress. Her name is Maria Jose' Hernandez Wells. She did more than her normal duties. She went out of... More

This was an amazing place. The rooms are all cascading down the mountainside. our room was at the very top and we had views of the ocean and the mountain ranges and 5 volcanoes behind us. All 3 restaurants and pool bar were excellent. The staff was more than helpful and loved getting to know you and helping you with... More

We stayed in the Villas Sol Hotel not in the resort. Our holiday was rewarded as time-share hopefuls. Our hotel room was large, very clean, the air-conditioning worked well, there was plenty of hot water, the bathroom was lovely and over-all we had no complaints about the room, the food or the service we received. The only complaint we did... More

I had read negative reviews so was a little hesitant to book. But it was a great value! You won't find a better view, amazing sunset night after night. The resort was not crowded so we were very relaxed. The restaurant and bar staff was always great! My favorite was Ranier.... a doll of a bartender! His drinks were perfect,... More

We arrived at the hotel with a group of 20 people and were greeted by a very pleasant attendant, Melissa. The reception area was very small and could only accommodate one attendant. She was very personable and professional and handled the crowd very well. The reception area has now moved to a new location at the front gate and can... More

We staye at the hotel here on our 4th stop in a month in Cosa Rica. Having read the many negative reviews, we had low expectations. But, we have been pleasantly surprised. The room is spacious, clean and comfortable with a private balcony with great ocean views. The shower is very good. The food is not gourmet, but who would... More
