If you require someone to wait on you hand and foot this is not the place for you. The staff provided a quick check in and got us to our condo. We were in #8. This is a three bedroom, 2.5 bath unit. There were four of us one couple and two friends. The units are comfortable and equipped with...

Mark's Sol Tropical offer a terrific 'Highlights Tours' package. Our guide for the week, Christian, was absolutely brilliant, hugely knowledgeable about the wildlife (and finding it for us) and excellent at fully achieving all that was promised about the tours. About 12 of us went on each day trip, most signing up for the Monday to Friday package. We saw...

We booked Unit 12 through RCI for a week, and we really had very few complaints about our stay! We arrived knowing that it wasn't a 5-star resort, but the condo really satisfied every need: - We packed enough clothes for the week so we didn't need to find any laundry services. - The Wifi worked through most of the...

1st - you'll have a roof over your head. 2nd (and most important) - you'll have Mark of Sol Tropical touring company readily available. Mark and (especially) his two primary team members Chris and Happerare GREAT! We did a full week of tours with them, plus an extra. Mark is pretty good at running the business, with a great heart....

Staying at the Taranova-Villas Palmas was an adventure. Loved the people - the staff, the concierges and the security guards were awesome, and the best part was the condo's relationship with Sol Tropical tour company -- those folks were the best. As for the condo itself, it was serviceable but the internet was iffy, it wasn't the cleanest and the...

Hard to believe this is a taranova site. Very dated. Internet is horrible. Not really close to a lot. If using just a base it is ok. The beds and pillows were extremely uncomfortable. The condos were in an area that has a park across the road and seemed to be the hang out for people and was very noisy....

The Tarano-Villas Palmas is a nice place to stay. It is a bit dated, but comfortable. The English speaking staff was extremely helpful in ordering cabs and ordering food. They also had good suggestions about restaurants to visit. The floor could have been a bit cleaner, we got black feet walking on the tile, but that is a minor inconvenience....

This isn't a modern hotel, but it is a authentic style Costa Rican hotel It had three bedrooms, full kitchen and two TVs--one of them Flat Screen. It was right around the corner from a large modern Best Western Hotel and not far from a modern shopping area.

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...
