I can't for the life of me figure out why this resort gets so many good reviews. It was downright dreadful. We were first checked-in to a "Villa". It turned out to be a very small, dirty room with 2 double beds with threadbare bedding. No bureau, the door to the postage stamp of a patio which wouldn't even fit...

We stayed at the resort Jan. 31st to the 7th of Feb 2017. It is a pretty area but the Villa Sol needs many repairs to bring it back up to a nice resort. The food was ok, a little repetitive but their deserts are very good. There is only one buffet, and a restaurant which is very hard to...

Rooms were sub-standard - saggy beds and dirt on the walls. The front office staff were extremely unhelpful, almost bordering on rudeness. The food was not very appetizing - unless you enjoy eating three types of rice every single night and boiled chicken - although breakfast and lunch were not bad each day. There were no activities in the resort...

Nice place to visit, and relax. Loved the view. Perfect setting for the sun every night. Waiters seemed to be stressed at times, but overall, everyone else was very friendly and cordial. Seems we ate beans and rice daily, but they were good daily. The Guanacaste region seems to be very expensive when it comes to buying souveniers. Not sure...

This was our first visit to Costa Rica. We were looking for resorts near the beach and that did not have a mandatory all-inclusive. We were interested in visiting during the dry season during the time that it is Winter in the US. This was a timeshare exchange made approximately 10 months in advance. The resort was contacted in advance...

Stayed for a week 02/10 - 02/17. Gorgeous view, fun and relaxing pools, extremely clean and workers have a great attitude. Food is typical 3 star all inclusive. Weather was obnoxiously wonderful. Go for the Palo Verde river tour. Chance to see a lot of varied wildlife. We were very satisfied.

My Wife and I spent two weeks at the Villas Sol in early Feb, 2017. The resort is older and can use a little TLC for sure, but we had a very good stay. The staff are incredible and I really cannot say enough good things about them. Michael, at the bar and upper pool area, was amazing. Such a...

Stayed four nights on an all-inclusive basis - a vacation plan sales promo. The setting is truly lovely and it's easy to walk to other Playa Hermosa establishments and number of which will be recommended in other reviews. The rooms are clean and the air conditioning, hot water, etc. are all more than adequate. The drinks are a bit weak...

My sister and I had 4 nights and 5 days here.. Feb 4 thru 8.
