I visited with friends who used their timeshare points there. The location and beaches were great, the resort itself just seemed a little lackluster. The first thing I noticed was the staff didn't seem very happy - hardly a smile anywhere. It seemed a little dingy and dated, and we had several issues in our rooms. Dirty, leaking a/c units...

If you have decided to come to Costa Rica, you need to do your research and make sure you know what kind of traveler you are. My best friend and I came with our lonely planet book and chose to live day by day. Knowing this, we chose Villas Sol, because the all-inclusive feature was optional and only $60/day...which included... More

We had a great time here, the walk to the room/pool/restaurant/beach is quite a hike you need really good shoes and some cardio stamina, they do have a jitney which feels like an eternity to wait for, but when you are tired after a long day you... wait.. Not much to do in this area, Co Co beach is much... More

The trip started with a staff member who claimed to give us information about the resort. She ended up trying to pressure us into going to a presentation for a timeshare, to which point I had to say we are not interested several times. The timeshare itself was very nice, however be ready for a climb to your room or... More

Poor hospitality, horrible food and old and careless installations, the only good thing was the beach and the beautiful weather! The staff is under trained, they don't have the tools, nor the knowledge to help you the way you are paying for. Button line they got stuck in the 80s when they where the only hotel in playa Hermosa.

The best part about this hotel is the grounds and landscaping. The view from the hotel balcony is stunning and the grounds have beautiful flowers all over. The pool is nice, although there could have been more shade, especially because all the shaded seats were almost always taken. The main dining area is beautiful and the view of the ocean... More

This resort is at best very sub standard. The rooms are ok, clean and well maintained. That is all the positive I can say. They have two restuarants on is only open on WED, Friday and Saturday. It has a nice menu until the waiter comes over and says that most of the items are not available. The other restaurant... More

Better than I expected after reading some of the reviews. It is a a duel layout, with a hotel and (timeshare?) villas to choose from. It is a large property located on a hillside, but no fear, as small shuttles constantly patrol, shuffling guests to where ever they are going. Hotel rooms are rather basic, but certainly adequate and comfortable.... More

Our whole group (4 fifty-somethings and 5 twenty-somethings) enjoyed our stay at Villas Sol. We had two 2 bedroom villas right by each other and had plenty of room to host dinners for all 9 of us in either villa. The villas were almost at the top of the hill and it was quite a trek to the beach, but... More
