Amazing views but skip the all inclusive package
Lisa M, charter oak, ca

Our stay was in a 3 bedroom villa with a private small pool which was nice and comfy. Pros: Clean rooms, working AC, full kitchen, secured gated grounds, calm and relax resort, Coco Beach is not too far where all the nightlife is at, and great views. Cons: No Wifi, terrible food, shuttles run slow, lack of towels and when requested more towels the front desk gave me the run around that it's one towel per person. Recommendations: Skip the all inclusive package and have the typical food in town, skip the shuttles and just take that steep walk. More>

Loved villas Sol ❤️

We stayed here all inclusive for two weeks with Thompson holidays . We were lucky to get to stay in the hotel which was lovely, great sized rooms cleaned daily with breath taking views ! It's a big resort which felt like a little village, we had no problems walking around the resort and down to the beach tho it was great to hop on a shuttle when it got to hot to walk up hills ! The main restaurant reminded us of a safari lodge with its wooden decor, it was such a pleasure to eat whilst looking out at the fantastic view . We enjoyed the food ,good selections always seemed fresh the only thing i would of liked would have been to have fresh fruit choices for dessert at lunch and dinner not just at breakfast ! We had no problem booking the other restaurant, service was good but food nothing to shout about ! We spent most of our evenings chilling round the restaurant bar drinks and cocktails were good although they could do with a lot more chairs the seating is sparse to say the least ! There is a lively bar with a DJ for everyone who wants a boogie . There are two nice pools, the big one lively playing music all day the smaller one was quiet and nice to sit around and read a book . There is a lot of wildlife around the resort which we loved ! Beach is beautiful and was never busy apart from the sun bed area which is in the shade with the beds chained together, walk a bit further on up to find a peaceful place to soak up the sun , sea is warm and really calm .you can go for a nice walk along the beach there is also rock pools to explore when the tide goes out . We saw Howler monkeys at the beach everyday which was fab. We got the local bus into coco beach , there are some gift shops some bars and restaurants there , worth a visit as its not to far . We booked all our excursions through JC a lovely guy who runs aquatics tour just as you go down to the beach . Highly recommend him to organise your excursions . The staff at Villas Sol really made our stay special and memorable , they were all friendly and nothing was to much trouble for them , would like to mention a few of our favourite staff members .. Ivan and Rafael who made the best mojitos , Flori-Beth , Wilmer , Milton , Diego who all gave us great service in the restaurant. A special big thank you to one of the managers Melvin Garcia who went out of his way to make our holiday absolutely amazing ! 😄 We really enjoyed our stay at Villas Sol and if we ever visit beautiful Costa Rica in the future we will be sure to stay here again ... Pure Vida ❤️ More>

Amazing views, decent amenities

The villas offer incredible sunset and beach views. Currently the property is under some renovations but it did not get in the way of our visit. Most of the staff speak English and are very friendly and accommodating. There is a shuttle that will bring you around the resort and to the beach. The resort is required all-inclusive in order to eat onsite, and it is not recommended to try and find your own food. The food at Bahía was pretty good, although somewhat repetitive. They do try and mix it up every night. More>

Fun Trip to Costa Rica

We really enjoyed the Villas Sol. On the property the is a hotel and villas. We stayed in a villa. The rooms are adequate but nothing special. Kitchen was minimally equipped if you plan to cook in the room. No towels, pot holders and utensils. If you do the all inclusive, it really does't matter. The food at both restaurants is great. A big variety of meats, vegetables and desserts. Watch out for the birds in the main restaurant. If you leave your table unattended, they will steal your food. The resort is beautiful and well maintained. Taking the shuttle is a must to get from the beach to the villas on top of the hill. (Unless your into hiking). The villa employees are very attentive and speak English very well. The tours offered are great, especially the Buena Vista Mega Tour. There is not wi-fi in the villas, you can pay to use on the second floor of the hotel. More>

Great stay

We had a great stay at the Villas Sol. Traveled as a couple, and had plenty to do and see. Playa del Coco is not too far away, and you can find all sorts of little shops and rentals there. Activities coordinator Joey at the resort was great, very friendly, and added positively to the experience. Ivan at the wetbar was also fantastic, mixing great drinks, and providing some really good conversation. Overall a really good experience. More>
