We stayed at this resort from 3/1 through 3/9 2015. We had an ocean view room with a gorgeous view. We were on the 2nd floor of the main building and you only had to walk down two flights of steps and across a little bridge to be at a pool, bar and buffet restaurant. This is not a luxury... More

Loving staff, very attentive to yourneeds. Rooms very clean. Food was great as well as the drinks.It was an all-inclusive, so we tried their breakfast, lunch and dinner.No complaints.We always sat to eat at the table for two at the balcony, so we had two beautiful birds that would join us everyday to eat. We had no problems sharing our... More

Having previously stayed here on a couple of vacations I really hoped it would be better than a lot of the reviews....but it was not to be. There are some very positive things about the hotel...the view from the hotel rooms is incredible, the food service was very good and most of the staff seemed to care about service. The... More

I have been visiting Costa Rica for the past 10 years. Playa Hermosa is a small, but beautiful beach. Although the sand is volcanic it strangely is very soft to the touch. Villas Sol is located on the hillside above the beach and is in close proximity. We walked easily down the hill to the beach everyday. There is a... More

Jerry and the resort staff were very accommodating. They did everything to make our holiday a great experience. The resort is under new management and are making changes; like the option of all inclusive, considering adding another al a carte restaurant. some patience is required. Down falls: breakfast stops at 10:00 am ; 1 snack bar opens at 11:00-4:00; no... More

We stayed in the condo/villa area (57-4). No towels upon arrival but an inventory list was present. We called the desk and reported the lack but when we returned hours later there were still no towels. Since I had just changed a tire in the dust I called again and then showered and used paper towels to dry. The bath... More

Very comprehensive and beautiful resort. The staff was exceptionally helpful, although available staff was limited. Food is average. The views and friendliness are the best things about this resort. I would avoid the all inclusive, if possible because the food is average. There are some great restaurants on the beach.

The staff was friendly and responsive to our every need. Before you book a stay here, realize that this place is not on the beach. You can take a free shuttle to the public beach or walk to it. Not being on a beach gives the place a different feel than one that is actually on a beach. We stayed... More
