Pros: location, views, pool. Cons: service, all inclusive restricted by night ( ie saturday - only mexican), transportation takes forever, no service when your are close to the beach...not even water.

This was our second year at Villas Sol. We enjoy the resort and plan to return many times. It is a comfortable, affordable, pleasant place to use as home base while we are in Costa Rica - enjoying day trips, nightlife, and dining in the surrounding area. To be realistic, Villas Sol is not a "destination resort" where you would...

Spent a week (Feb. 28-March 6, 2012) at Villa Sol. To put this in context we are in our mid-60's in good condition. The property is built on a very steep hill requiring many stairs and steep paths. They do have shuttles that make a circuit every 5-10 minutes. This is an RCI time-share resort with many villas above a...

We visit Costa Rica yearly. We have stayed here twice, at different villas. The location is nice, with good views but a steep walk to the public beach (which is not the best but is good for kids). The shuttles run frequently if you don't feel like hiking. It is now "all inclusive", and it's not expensive ($45 or so...
