Very Average

The place was clean and comfortable but other than 2 crowded pools had little in the way of things to do. The beach was a distance away. There was a shuttle to go everyone which was essential because the place has very steep walks. The staff was very helpful.The meals were very average. After the first night we elected not to get the all inclusive plan and elected to eat outside which meant driving to Coco Beach or the restaurants at Andaaz. There is a nice restaurant just outside the hotel but the rest were quite a drive away More>

This resort is huge. We stayed with friends in a 2 bedroom villa. It's very hilly which generally requires getting from one place to another on the very regular shuttles. There are 2 pools .....the first pretty small. Even though we were there in the Low season it was generally crowded. The second larger pool was again crowded, noisy and looked run down. This place is all inclusive ( food and alcohol) meaning a lot of people consuming a lot of alcohol. Our room was ok, sparsely decorated and appointed. The air conditioner very loud which caused a poor quality of sleep. All meals were buffet, which became monotonous even though there was a different " theme" each night there was a sameness. There is an a la carte restaurant that seats just 13 couples. The way to book is from 6am on the day you wish to go. By 9 am it's booked out. Why a system where you pick when you want to go and book on arrival at the hotel is not in place is not logical. Some guests we met had been more than once, others, like us, couldn't get a booking. On the plus side the staff are lovely. More>

Villa Sol is an asesore familia ran operación. Rico and Chris aré world class folk se that e sirve your every ende is met! Every staff person at the estabishment was professional and courteous! I highly recommend the facility to families and couples seeking scenery, solitude, culture, and lifelong friendships across the grid. Whenever the folks at the top (R & C) make an effort to ensure your every need is met, the commitment to quality speaks for itself! No vacation is without faults due to u foreseen acts of nature! Drought conditions led to water being off across the region. My wife had intestinal issues and the staff saw to it that they brought large bottles of water to the roo! Best view of the Pacífico I every sitúes sed. I vos to retire in the región! Quite posesivo at Villa Sol ; ). Plegase note that Villa Sol is not afíliate de with Coco Tours and has no desaliñas with the two low lifes! I urge everyone to purchase their tours through Villa Sol and they will have the vacation of a lifetime. See you soon, Rick, Chris, and crew! Muchos Gracias y Mucho Gusto! Pura Vida More>

Awesome stay and beautiful wedding

We had a group of 19 staying here and had an amazing time. The food was fantastic, always - fresh, delicious, with lots of variety. I really don't know how anyone could complain, there's always something for everyone. The drinks were also outstanding, especially the cocktails. The best part was the service, as everyone at the resort is very eager to please and super friendly. We had a lot of special requests between all of us, and they did their best to meet them. Finally, we had our wedding on the beach here, which was beautiful. One glitch was the water being unavailable across the resort and rooms for a few hours, and this happened three times in a week. However, I'm sure this isn't the hotel's fault, and they did their best to get it fixed quickly and keep everyone informed. All in all, we'd recommend it to anyone. More>
