Great little hotel

We are a family of four, with two teenage boys, our first visit to Costa Rica. Villas Sol is a small hotel with adjoining vacation condos. All meals were of a good standard and a full varied menu for breakfast , lunch and dinner. Staff were pleasant throughout the hotel. Rooms were spacious and adequate Hotel location was perfect, and a small village/community within walking distance If you are after a hotel with a wide and varied group of guests this is perfect. It's positioning on the hill overlooking Playa Hermosa gives a wonderful view of the bay and a chance to view nightly sun sets Highly recommend this hotel More>

Wonderful Vacation!

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Sol. Beautiful panoramic views of the ocean and mountains outside our windows. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was always a shuttle going up and down to reception and the beach, like every 10 or 15 minutes. Locals are friendly and mosquitoes were not an issue. Bring your sunscreen, it is very expensive in Costa Rica. You don't really need to rent a car or do all-inclusive for meals. Cab ride into town for sight-seeing and get groceries while there - $20 there, $10 back. On site mini mart is expensive. Car rental is very expensive there, as much as $100 per day. Also, if you do a couple of the excursions you have transportation to and from. Highly recommend Nicaragua, long day but fun. Walk along the beach there are places to have lunch and dinner. We are RCI members. We got room 63. More>

Beautiful views from the Hotel

We were picked up promptly at the airport by a representative of the hotel. The driver was all business, did not talk to the guests. At the check in desk asked us to sign a blank credit card charges form which we refused and then after consulting with someone else was torn up and put in trash. The hotel was sparse but clean. No telephone nor was there hot water for one of the mornings we were there. The view was spectacular. The free alcohol drinks were abundant at both the bar by the restaurant and at the pool bar. Activities were free and the prominent language was Spanish so brush up on your language skills. The restaurant and bar staff were friendly and helpful. (tip them and they keep the drinks coming). Food was Ok, edible but not great. Do not buy a package deal if you attend a presentation at the resort. Kevin will promise you the moon but nothing seems to be on the up and up. More>

Beautiful Views Yet not Handicap Friendly

To Start of let me just say the view alone made this resort wonderful. it was so wonderful waking up and going to sleep with the view they had to offer. I will say this resort is definitely not handicap friendly. the hills tend to be very steep and high. When they say the resort is mountain side, then literally mean MOUNTAIN SIDE. but they do try to accommodate you with shuttles that run all day throughout the resort, which are somewhat reliable. but in my opinion the resort staff made up for it with there friendly attitudes and welcoming atmosphere. Definitely would not mind coming back here in the future. i also do not recommend to get the full all inclusive. The food tend to be very bland to say the least. There is a nice tapas restaurant literally a 2 min walk away from the resort called ginger bar. and nice few places to eat on the beach. As well as a supermarket to. What me and my friends got was the pink bracelet that allowed us to put any amount of money on it and spend it around the resort which we used just for drinks at the bar. More>

Very nice owners who took care of us and made sure we were comfortable. The kitchen was very well kept and offered lots of things to use to cook. Nice people with good vibes and a short walk to the beach! More>
