They shouldn't call this a beach resort considering it's a 20 minute challenging walk even for the fit. There are shuttles but you have to be willing to waste your time waiting for one. Once on the beach you get accosted immediately by beach vendors wanting to take to you on tours, revising their prices each time they see you.... More

Costa Rica is such an amazing country and this resort is different from your usual all inclusive. It's unique layout (on a steep hill) make it interesting. There are shuttles that take you everywhere. People are very nice, Marcos at the main bar is fantastic, food is great and so are the drinks. rooms are very well kept and clean,... More

Rooms were nice, but there was no hot water until the last day we were there. Maintenance came by one day and told us it was as hot as it would get. The activities available were good, but don't understand why main pool is so far away from rooms. Shuttles were plentiful except for the last night we were there... More

We were there off season so only one restaurant was open which served (3) buffet style menus each day, this on an all inclusive package. There is no town to speak of, if you like outdoor activities we took atv's through the mountains to a couple small beaches, zip lines through the canopy, but there was not much else to... More

The resort was amazing. The only complaint we had was the shuttle was not frequent at all. The reviews about the hilliness of the place are not lies. It is extremely hilly. Especially if you are in the villas. Although it was hilly and we really would have preferred to have a shuttle more often than we did, it was... More

I had read so many reviews on Villas Sol that I was a bit skeptical about our trip. Boy, was I surprised. The views are spectacular but unless you see them first hand you will not appreciate the scenery. For us, it was love at first sight. We arrived at the airport and greeted by a staff member.

This resort is not for anyone with physical challenges as it is very steep and although they have shuttles it still requires good balance and strong legs. That said the villas are very lovely with big windows offering great light and in varying degrees wonderful ocean and mountain views. I* found the management to be very accommodating and was so...
