My wife, 11 yr.old son, and I stayed at Villa Sol in mid-September 2006, and enjoyed ourselves very much. We stayed in the hotel section of the resort, which consisted of an average (Days Inn) room. Contrary to other reviews our fridge was stocked the day after check-in and was replenished everyday. The view from the balcony was amazing, especially... More

We stayed at the hotel and not the villas. The other reviews are pretty factual. Great views, average room, average cleanliness and amenities. The rooms show their age. Safety is good. The food is at best satisfactory.. The restaraunt staff is very good. Breakfast is the best, lunch next and then dinner. The bar staff is good. The second restaruant... More

This is not the place to be pampered. If this hotel/"resort" didn't have a view, it would have NOTHING. The hotel web site said they have two (2) restaurants - what they failed to say was one of the restaurants is ONLY open on Fridays and Saturdays for reservations ONLY. If you are an all inclusive guest, you are ONLY... More

We just got back from our first trip to Costa Rica. We were met at the Liberia airport by the Swiss Travel greeter as promised, and had a 30+ minute ride to the resort. We had room 2206 in the hotel. It had an amazing view of the Snake Bay. The room is a standard two double bed setup with... More

We just returned from a week at Villas Sol. It's a nice resort in what I would consider the best location in the Playa Hermosa area. I am glad we chose it over the Grand Papagayo or Fiesta Premier as it's location within walking distance to the Hermosa beach was very worthwhile. The other resorts are really out of the... More

We stayed a Villas Sol from June 30th til July 2nd and had a great time. There were 4 of us so we stayed in a 2 bedroom villa. Yes, the furniture is outdated, but if you're going there, why would you stay in your room the whole time?!? Our villa was walking distance to the wet-bar which was nice,... More

We arrived Saturday June 17 and stayed for 7 nights. We traveled with 5 other friends and had a great time. The Villas Sol was great for a big group or just a couple wanting to get away. What an amazing trip. Villas Sol is a friendly resort with many things to do. I highly recommend the Combo Tour for... More

My husband and I travel about 4x per year, using all inclusive if available, and using Worry Free or Fun Jet vacations. And, I always use trip advisor before purchasing a vacation to see the reviews of other travelers. We did this for this Costa Rica vacation as well and all the reviews were good. However, we had nothing but... More
