Our second floor room had a beautiful view of the pool and bay, was well cleaned daily, quiet at night with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was clean, flowers tucked in the towels by the maid, the...

My husband and I stayed at the Villas Sol Resort from September 11-18, 2010, We had a one bedroom with a wonderful view!! The staff at the resort were extremely nice and would have given us the shirts off of their backs had we asked for them. The food was ok, but we opted to only do the all inclusive... More

We rented a car from Hertz (good price in advance on Priceline) and were able to find the Villas Sol easily. There is a Luperon - supermarket in Playa Hermosa and several in Playa Coco which is 9-10 km from Hermosa. When we got there we were redirected to the new "RCI" check in office which is down from the... More

I had such an amazing stay. Villas Sol is a wonderful resort and everyone there is so friendly. Yopo & Daniel are a blast to be around - such high energy! Heiner in the restaurant is so sweet. The bartenders were wonderful as well (but too many margaritas made me forget their names). The locals are equally amazing and everyone... More

Although it is supposed to be a 4 star hotel, the staff is poorly qualified, they do not have answers, they lie all the time. The hotel does not have hot water, they do not mention this fact when you book it or either at check in, one manager mentioned to me that it was due to "energy savings", I... More
