My wife and I went to their RCI point/timeshare presentation, but we did not buy. They had given us a certificate for 2 nights stay in exchange for listening to the pitch, but they would not honor the certificate when we tried to use it later on our vacation even though they had told us they would. Bad deal; don't... More

This was our first time in Costa Rica, but certainly not our last. It was of course, our first time at Villas Sol Hotel, and it will be our last. Our first introduction to the hotel was when we checked in. It was not a good start. Even with reservations in hand, they had trouble finding us a room. They... More

My husband and I stayed at Villas Sol last year; it was our first trip to Costa Rica. We booked the hotel upon the recommendation of a friend of mine who travels a lot. Boy, will I never trust her opinion ever again! it is a 2-or 3 star hotel, no way a 4 star one. The food was horrible... More

I went to Villas Sol for one week with my daughter in Feb., 2007. It was my third time in Costa Rica, and her second. The overall experience was superb. Perhaps the most enjoyable aspect was the magnificent views from the main dining room. We always asked for a seat outdoors on the seaside and were totally enchanted with the... More

First, I'd like to thank everyone who posted a review (both good and bad) as this really helped us have a better experience at the resort. Thanks to candid feedback of others, we enjoyed the scenic 2+ hour sail boat tour - need to get to activities booth for sign up a few minutes before 8. Sign up is 8-9am... More

We (husband, two teenage boys & I) just returned from a wonderful trip to Costa Rica, staying at the Villas Sol. Seeing that it was rated 2-3 stars really scared me. I don't consider myself "high maintenance", but I didn't want to have major regrets because I tried to book on a budget. Well, I wasn't disappointed. The hotel was... More

We stayed at Villas Sol from Dec. 23 to Dec. 30. I can honestly say that I have stayed in better accommodations, but what are you looking for? We booked tours every day so we only were at the hotel to eat breakfast and supper. Costa Rica is not a place that you come to for just lounge around the... More
