Arrived at the hotel late and tired. They did not want to except my credit card for some unknow reason and demanded cash for the entire stay up front. When we did not have enough cash with us to pay in advance we were escorted out to the street. I do not recommend this place. Go somewhere reputable.

Really wanted to Like it!

We had a great reaction to our Villa (one bedroom, one bath) when we arrived. The villa is spacious and inviting and had a fantastic view. That was the last of our enjoyable experience. We walked into a string of problems that tainted our vacation from the start. Villa Sol is a beautiful resort property needing to update and upgrade it's accommodations. The villas are sorely outdated with the problems associated with lack of maintenance. If you want a trouble free experience, try another resort as we do not recommend.

RCI finally gave us a good place

First, we were a little concerned about the location which ended up a great place with a beautiful beach with several restaurants on the beach. We ate at these 3 times during a 5 day stay. We heard over and over the food wasn't great, so we never tried it. We were close to the pool and the music is blaring from 8am to midnight. Even earplugs didn't help. So the next night we decided to simply join the fun and we had a blast with dancing and the bartender was amazing. This property is nice, spread out but they have a shuttle every 15 minutes, so no worries. Just go and enjoy. Several pools, market close by and front desk is available 24 hours.

Great Vacation

We stayed at the hotel. It was all exclusive, which means meals and drinks. The room was very nice and had a great view of the ocean. The staff were wonderful and very friendly. To get to the beach you take shuttles, and they run quite often, so that was not a problem. I liked the food, but I am not picky. There was always something good to eat and the people working there are great. I didn't care for the restaurant by the bar pool. Food took too long to get and wasn't very good. The buffet was much better and the drinks I loved. The restaurant has a beautiful view of the ocean and sunset. Remember that in Costa Rica the food is natural, such as beans/rice, fruit, fish, and vegetables. They prepare a variety of dishes that were quite good. For tours, I didn't care for the company and their services. I liked Mardigi Tours instead. Better vehicle, friendlier, and more knowledgeable . We were able to see monkeys, birds and large lizards at this hotel... Note: Keep sliding doors locked because raccoons know how to open the doors and find the refrig.

Unbelievably bad, racist, bigoted treatment!!! Hospitality -- NONE

My niece and her companion arrived at the Villa Sol after being delayed hours by the airlines. It was almost 9pm. The room was a pre-paid package. The hotel wanted a credit card for damage deposit. That's expected. This was one of 5 trips purchased in a packaged through VIP International. The girls presented their debit card, but the hotel refused it saying it had to be a credit card. Then they escorted the girls by security to the front gate and deposited them on the street at 11:00pm. NEVER GO TO THIS HOTEL! Was it because they were black?? I think so. They could have taken the deposit on the debit card, let the girls into their room and sorted in the morning. Today I called the hotel. They told me "too bad". I told them I would write them a very bad review and also get an attorney. He said "Do it!" I spoke to Edward. A very bad man. It was by sheer luck, that I live not only in Costa Rica, but close to the Villa Sol. I have stayed their in the past when we were building our house. It was dirty and the service was awful. I suggest you go anywhere else. My next letter will be to the Tourism Department of Costa Rica. Makes this beautiful country look bad.
