I just came back from a FANTASTIC week at Villa Sol in Playa Hermosa. Our room had a gorgeous view overlooking the ocean, great air conditioning, and a comfortable bed and futon. The food cooked by Chef Christian Ameth Castillo and his hard working crew was absolutely amazing. I am a vegetarian and was consistently impressed with the freshness and... More

The best thing about this resort is the View & the friendly people, Otherwise what people have said previously about this place, is true. The food is blah & repetitive and the resort needs updating, I hope they work on this. I'll try Not to repeat what others have already said & just comment on what we found out when... More

Villa Sol, Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica “Room with a view” We stayed at the Villa Sol April 6-13, 2015 and this was our first visit to Costa Rica.

Room service was "unavailable" our entire stay and the food in the restaurant was basically inedible. The views were beautiful but they nickel and dime you for every single thing. Pay a little more and stay elsewhere.

Dear Hope V, thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to review our property. We deeply regret you were not satisfied with our services, we certainly have never included room service as one of them and regret you were expecting it. Really hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip. More

My boyfriend and I just returned from our vacation at Villas Sol and overall had a good time! Friendly service throughout our stay made our experience worth while. The hotel is in average condition, it lacks appeal in the main reception lobby and could use an update. This hotel accommodates all inclusive packages, day packages, condo rentals and time share...

The staff at the resort was very helpful but the service we requested was slow. The resort needs updating and was not to the standards that you would expect in Mexico or Hawaii. We had the all inclusive package for one day but the foods was bland and boring and the drinks were pretty bad. The soda came from 2... More
