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

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

The only thing I enjoyed was the view from the room. It was beautiful. We enjoyed the tours we booked from the hotel pricey but they were fun. The staff was not so polite. We had no towels in our room and called to get them delivered to us but were not happy about that. The Food from hotel was... 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.

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.
