Just back from costa rica yesterday,may 23. Stayed at vills sol which was a great resort. No problem at all getting around resort and we stayed in the hotel section in a room overlooking the pool plus an unparalleled view of the Pacific Ocean.

After travelling all day, we were looking forward to dropping our bags, grabbing a meal and then unpacking. Instead, upon checking in, we were given an inventory list and had to spend our first hour counting utensils, cookware, plates, kitchen appliances, etc. and checking them all on a list we were handed. Any discrepancies would result in our being charged...

Booked through a travel agent at this unknown all inclusive resort. My husband and I are not the all inclusive resort type. However, this place was great! All of the staff are amazingly friendly. We were there in May which is the rainy season but it only rained as evening was approaching, so the days were spent between the 2...

We traveled to Costa Rica for a week of scuba diving. The hotel, Villas Sol, was average in accommodations. The rooms were adequate, we had problems with the air conditioning as did most of our group. The hotel location is about 1/4 mile from the beach and up a hillside, to the view is great from most rooms. Ask for...

We had a terrific vacation at Villas Sol Resort. We bought the all inclusive package and it worked very well for us. No need to cook in the modern well stocked kitchen, we used the dining supplies for snacks only. Our three bedroom villa was updated and very clean, a sweet maid came every day and took good care of...

As an owner of one of the private villas, I loved reading your review! It is definitely the way to go when staying at Villas Sol. A villa offers a lot more room and privacy and the plunge pools are terrific. Shout out to your MIL for her youthful spirit.

Had to change rooms twice due to air conditioner not working, others had same issues. Only one restaurant open for all meals and food was not good. Liquor was low grade at bars and watered down, facility is dated to put it nicely, we had to request wash cloths- none provided. Even though advertised as all inclusive, we bought liquor...

Recently I purchased some time share points from Hilton Grand Vacations. Last month, when a free week became available, I used some airline award miles and some points from my time share program and made a last minute trip to Costa Rica, which I had never been to before. I found that the last room/place available that was part of...

Food was ok. Room cleanliness was not that great. The ironing board was disgusting, and there was not ever enough toilet paper or towels. We had to ask for a chair for our balcony. The walks to get to the different areas was really annoying. It was a nice beach and nice views. This was the only upside. I would...

This is our second time staying in Villas Sol. We love it. The staff is friendly and service oriented. The grounds of the resort are well maintained and easy to get around via shuttles. Several restaurants and bars on the beach and activities sponsored by the resort. Booked a couple excursions; Arenal and snorkeling with sunset cruise. The food was...
