Awesome oceanview

Villas Sol is located at Hermosa Beach in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. It is a four star hotel that is close to Santamaría or Liberia international airport. We drove from San José via Liberia's new highway. I love the view of the bay from the balcony. More>

Poor air conditioning

Traveling with a group of twelve and we all had problems with the air conditioning not working well. They did give some of us a fan for our last two nights. The food was good. Shuttle to the beach was timely and convenient. Our phone in the room never worked nor did the wifi. Also most of us had issues with the keys not working. I went thru 4 in 4 days. That all being said, the staff were friendly, good food and great cocktails. More>

I'll go back here, definitely, when I can. I stayed in one of the hotel rooms, and missed their time share presentation. I was told it was a great presentation, and offered a different set up to RCI affiliation. The room was clean, spacious, and everything worked (I was told that some of the rooms had faults, but mine didn't), and housekeeping serviced it daily(although the paperwork said it was every 2nd day). There was a problem at times with water, as Costa Rica was in a severe drought period. They had to have water shipped in, and inconvenienced the guests as little as possible, and it was in no way their fault. We got an all you can eat & drink package, and it was great value - bottomless cocktails are my kinda thing. The food was very good, and they had a different country's cuisine themed every day, so it was not at all repetitive, and it was in a buffet format for all meals. It backed onto a nice beach, with a masseuse who was really goos at 10% of the cost in the resort. Once you were off the property & onto the beach, there were all sorts of sales pitches for tours and souveneirs, but once you've said no enough we were left alone. The water was really clear, and lent itself to a really nice swim. The pools in the resort were very nice as well, and they had enough lounges for those who wanted them. There was a free shuttle that took you around the resort & to the beach, which was handy, as the resort's really large. More>
