A vacation to try and relax

The saving grace for the hotel is the staff. All of the staff was very friendly and always helpful. We stayed in the hotel part of the resort. The room we stayed in drastically need to be updated. The bed needed to be replaced. The air conditioning in the room would barely keep it cool enough for us to be able to sleep. The rooms had no WiFi unless you wanted to go to the lobby, but supposedly they are trying to change that situation. The food was average at the main dining area. The private restaurant the food very good. Transportation around the grounds was good. (Beach back and forth)

Good Location, Terrible food

Great to be above the beach, but the hills are steep, so if you do not mind waiting a long time for the shuttle (about half as often as the resort down the street) or can walk long, steep hills you should be fine. The food at the main/buffett restaurant, however, is as bad as it comes. Meat & chicken is almost always swimming in grease at breakfast, lunch & dinner, bland flavoring, basic & bland desserts. Fish is mixed (sometimes greasy, sometimes not). If you do not mind rice, salad and bread you can get by, but a waste of money if you are looking for an all-inclusive 'deal'. Beds are not comfortable and maid service hit or miss (half the time we did not have the right quantity of towels)

Not the best vacation

As a solo traveler, this resort was not a very good choice. There's not much nearby so going without have a car was challenging. The amenities, food, and custom service were sub-par. Most of the staff did not seem very customer service oriented-few smiles. It seemed that the resort caters more to local Costa Ricans than an international clientele.

First and Last Visit!!!

This was our anniversary trip and we looked forward to our first visit to Costa Rica. What a disappointment. Don't get me wrong the sunset views are gorgeous but the resort was very disappointing. The limited things to do on the resort really need some work. It's hard to believe that anyone ever returns for future visits. The hills around the resort are very challenging for older guests and the food options are pretty limited as well. During our 5 day visit there was a water outage on 2 occasions. The staff is very friendly and work hard to ensure satisfaction but the resort really needs some work. Villa Sol is located near Condovac which becomes confusing when trying to get transportation through the resort. They don't share the transportation.The Jacuzzi had cold water :(

Great resort.. however

This is a GREAT resort for doing NOTHING. it’s a very relaxing place.. Food is amazing. The staff are great very helpful and nice. The resort itself however is externally BASIC. and by basic i mean there isn’t much to do in or around the resort. The location had amazing breathtaking views but that’s about it. One SMALL pool on one side and the main pool which is SMALL as well. If you want to hit the beach. BE WARNED it’s black sand beach and the water is NOT CLEAR. also. You have to take a shuttle to and from the beach. There’s nothing to do walking distance so if you wan to do something you MUST have a car and have Waze and be adventurous or result into doing one if there tours. Tours. Tours. Tours. Tours. Playa del coco is the only other near by town. I gave them two stars because the staff is amazing and the food was great. But that’s it. Here’s nothing else to this place
