Just got back from this resort. It's part of RCI which is a bit disappointing only because I hope other places on their lists aren't like this place. I'll start with positive things first. PROS: It is spacious. They did have one flat screen TV downstairs. There were 2 full bathrooms upstairs where the bedrooms are and a half bath... More

This was a great centrally located place to stay. The security was the best part. We felt safe as soon as we entered the gates. The unit was spacious and well equipped. All units were 2 bd 2 bath. There was no a/c but it was not needed at all.

I booked this resort through RCI at the last minute. For exploring Costa Rica it was a great location and Sol Tropical Tours, which is separate from the resort, was an amazing avenue for exploring the Country. The condo wasn't cleaned very well prior to our arrival, finding hair in all of the showers was displeasing. The towel count they... More

We used RCI points to book a two-bedroom unit in this condominium complex. We were given a complementary upgrade to a three-bedroom unit with 2.5 baths. With fans in every ceiling, a fully equipped kitchen, two televisions, and free wifi, we were very comfortable. The property also has a small but lovely swimming pool, which we did not use. Everything... More

Reading some reviews of this condo, I wasn't sure we made the right choice. But I am happy to report that we enjoyed our stay very much. We were picked up at the airport and brought to the condo. Check in was easy. The condo was very large and clean and had a nice "Latin" look and feel to it...much... More

I feel like I have to write this because based on reviews, I almost didn't stay here, which would have been a big mistake. Our 3-bedroom condo was clean and very nice. People say it's not updated... but what does that mean? When we go to a foreign country, we don't want to stay at the Ritz Carlton-- we want... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Villas Palmas for our first trip to Costa Rica. Overall the staff for Villas Palmas were very pleasant and professional. However the condos were quite dated and ours was smelt of food and stale everything. The beds were akin to sleeping on a wooden pallet at best and the sheets were just as... More

While we don’t usually take the time to do a detailed review on the resorts we stay at, we felt this one deserves more. After reading many of the previous reviews on Villas Palmas we debated at length whether to try it. We are pleased that we made the decision to do so. Warning: If you are looking for a... More

This complex was very comfortable and perfect for using as the central touring location. It is not luxurious but more than adequate. Negative reviews had us worried before we went but the second we walked into the courtyard, our worries were alleviated. The tours from the facility are amazing and more than you could plan on your own. Very affordable... More

San Jose is crazy for the North American person who is used to good directions. Here it is the land of directions via landmarks, so driving ourselves to this place was a bit challenging to say the least. It took us an hour to find it, especially since we had no means of calling them. First, you can only check... More
