I wouldn't recommend this resort to anyone, the staff is nice but they have no empowerment to do anything. The Resturant's are very limited and this is an all "inclusive" resort but I believe this is more of a limited service hotel. I found a beetle on my food which was beyond disgusting and forced me to be concerned about...

Before booking, we read all the reviews (good and bad) and had a good idea of what to expect. It is a 3.5 Star Hotel and priced accordingly. For our group (2 couples) it is what we wanted - reasonably priced leaving money for tours and adventures outside of the resort. The food, while good, does get repetitious but you...

First time here. Wasn't sure what to expect. Views are amazing. Structure and routine of hotel was smooth. You could walk or take shuttles to get around property. Things are scattered around which for me was part of the charm. Some people may not like that. Staff was friendly and helpful. Food was good. Wifi was ok and only available...

We rented a villa for 5 nights with my family. It was a decent villa with a very nice view but don't plan on staying in the hotel for the amenities. The pool is quite ugly, the beach is crowded and far from being a beautiful paradise-like beach like many others in the area, the villas are located on a...

My husband and I took a couples trip with 2 other couples for the new year. The hotel itself was okay, but the staff were amazing. I did not come across one individual who made me feel unwelcomed. The staff that we had throughout the week were what made this trip so wonderful. I would happily visit again with my...

We just returned from spending a week at the Villas Sol over Christmas and for the life of me I can't figure out what the negative reviews and fuss is all about. Staff was very helpful and friendly (shout out to Ibaum the bartender!), and the food was wonderful! The was always a great selection of fish, meat, rice, beans,...

I would like to hear from you and network yourselves with Trusting Owners who were enticed to buy supposedly an investment to generate income and why they ended up advertising at Resort Marketing Systems to be taken a second time.

Ok, so we arrived on a Guest Certifcate (our friend is an RCI owner and gave us this great gift). Once we checked in, we were given the map, and info about the resort. Great. By the way, if you plan on being in the resort property for all meals and if you want to drink a lot, then the...
