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

Villas Sol Hotel & Beach Resort is a very nice place with great views from most of the rooms in the hotel and many from the villas as well. The staff is amazing, very helpful and professional, very friendly and courteous. We stayed in the hotel on the top floor and had an awesome view of the bay/ocean. Many a... 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

Spacious room and nice bathroom built with solid stone. Food not much choice but most of the time quite good tasting. Some staff were friendly and helpful some stuff not so much. Didn't like constant travelling in shuttle when I wanted to go to beach or from beach, and the shuttle almost always made tour around all property which included... More

Just returned to USA after a great week at Villas Sol All-Inclusive Resort in Playa Hermosa Guanacaste Costa Rica. Had a great time that got better each day as we experienced something new about the property every day. They offer so much that at first we didn't know what to expect, and some of the reviewers had conflicting opinions, so... More

My sister and I planned our first trip together to Costa Rica. We decided to stay at Villas Sol all inclusive. We couldn't have made a better choice! The staff Jerry, Maureen, Kevin, and Dan were all amazing! Pura Vida!

Check in time slow. Requested early check-in 2 months in advance for the group. Denied. $25.00 charge (not mandatory, you can sit in lobby or take an overpriced taxi to town) while waiting for a room to use the pool, eat and have drinks is a reasonable cost but, seems like they strive for this fee by making check in...

One thing is true about this resort: There are lots of hills. Be prepared to walk up and down hills to and from your room if you're staying in one of the villas. My stay was in Villa 55-1. It was a very comfortable 2 bedroom, 2 baths, with kitchen, living room and balcony across the front with exits from... More

Feel like paying extra for everything? Then this is the place for you. WiFi is $25 every 2 days, and you can only use your device .... at the pool? By the way, every single place we stopped had free WiFi, after all, this is 2015! How about a local phone call from your room? A great deal at $1... More

The hotel was old and plain, the beach was not very nice. Although the food was pretty good, it got old (rice and beans were offered every meal). You have to take a "shuttle" to the beach, which is pretty dangerous since the drivers dont realize you can fly out at any moment and go pretty fast. And of course,... More
