We stayed in the hotel of this enormous complex of villas set cheek by jowl on the contours of the very steep slope. To get from the hotel to the beach or to the supermarket, shuttles were continuously available and were essential. Very difficult terrain on foot and in the heat, quite difficult if you are mobility-compromised. Beach wasn't anything... More

I usually give great reviews to hotels and restaurants because I recognize the effort they put in. Costa Rica is a great country to visit and Playa Hermosa in Guanacaste a wonderful beach community with the kind of idyllic beach that is worth flying hours for. Don't lessen your holiday by staying in such a shabby, poorly-run and cold hotel... More

Traveled with a group of four for a week and stayed in the hotel. After checking in some guy sat us down and pressured us to sign up for some travel club very annoying! Wifi never works (staff wouldn't even let me purchase it). Air conditioning did not work and the smell from the vent gave out a very foul... More

I give them one star just because I can't give -10. It was literally the worst place I have visited in my life. The managment really sucks and they try to rip off all your money by not giving clear information about trips and plans. The hotel sucks, the food sucks and the beach is ugly. You can get a... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Sol. Beautiful panoramic views of the ocean and mountains outside our windows. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was always a shuttle going up and down to reception and the beach, like every 10 or 15 minutes. Locals are friendly and mosquitoes were not an issue. Bring your sunscreen, it is... More

We were picked up promptly at the airport by a representative of the hotel. The driver was all business, did not talk to the guests. At the check in desk asked us to sign a blank credit card charges form which we refused and then after consulting with someone else was torn up and put in trash. The hotel was... More

To Start of let me just say the view alone made this resort wonderful. it was so wonderful waking up and going to sleep with the view they had to offer. I will say this resort is definitely not handicap friendly. the hills tend to be very steep and high. When they say the resort is mountain side, then literally... More

Very nice owners who took care of us and made sure we were comfortable. The kitchen was very well kept and offered lots of things to use to cook. Nice people with good vibes and a short walk to the beach!
