This is our second time staying in Villas Sol. We love it. The staff is friendly and service oriented. The grounds of the resort are well maintained and easy to get around via shuttles. Several restaurants and bars on the beach and activities sponsored by the resort. Booked a couple excursions; Arenal and snorkeling with sunset cruise. The food was...

Had a very nice stay at Villa de Sol Hotel and Beach Resort with my husband and friends. Especially enjoyed the sunset cruise. The pool was lots of fun with games and activities and plenty of drinks and snacks. The resort is set on a hill so you need to be physically fit to climb the hills. Excellent staff and...

We rented a private villa on the bottom of the hill, just around the corner from Reception. It was clean, spacious, and affordable. The villa requires a deposit upfront before using its amenities, including restaurants, but it was accurately refunded at the end of the stay. They have a shuttle that comes every ten minutes and will take you up...

Food, coffee, wine, fresh bread and pastries, water etc. Then we drove the easy 30 minutes to Villa Sol. We had a GPS but didn't need...

Villas Sol Hotel and Beach Resort is nestled among the northwestern hills leading to Playa Hermosa. The hotel sits atop the highest point of the property and provides excellent views of the half bowl of mountains creating a natural bay in the Pacific Ocean. Every room comes with a view, so don't worry about which room to take. The Dining...

Our vacation was perfect and exactly what we expected. The resort wasn't crowded and the staff were friendly. The food was excellent, the room was clean and the amenities were great. The negative reviews of this place should be ignored. Yes there are hills and you might have to wait a couple of minutes for a shuttle bus. The upside...

Just came back from a week here. We stayed in the hotel part rather than the villas, which I was glad of as it suited us and it was easier to get around as the shuttle goes from the reception to the beach to the hotel. Check in wasn't great. We had a man that wasn't friendly or helpful in...
