We stayed in the hotel, first floor, which was convenient for my wife who has foot issues. Restaurant, small pool and bar on same level. Well stocked gift shop on that level too. Room was clean, plenty big for two, had digital safe, nice sized bathroom with rustic tiled shower. Good hot water, shampoo/conditioner provided. Only slight issue we had,...

The staff is very helpful and friendly. Buffet style food at restaurants was very good! Shuttle service is a must and available frequently due to the resort being built on a hillside. Resort is not directly on the beach. But, the views of the Pacific at sunset are amazing! I would stay there again!

We loved out stay in Guancaste Costa Rica, though we didn't spend much time at the resort. Playa Hermosa is a black sand beach, and we were told the most beautiful beaches were about an hour away. We had a rental car so we spent most time at Playa Flamingo, Tamarindo, Conchal, and Danta. We did end up at Playa...

Villas Sol's villas are fully equipped, they have cable access, a kitchen and A/C. However the villas lack WiFi access. The only place that has WiFi access is the Hotel (which is about half a mile away from the villas). This wasn't as bad because this area has Cellular Service, but if you don't have a Data Plan or Sim...

Visted here with my significant other couple weeks ago. Excellent staff! Especially the bartenders and waiters-- Michael and Ivan are AMAZING bartenders and probably among my favorite people I've met in Costa Rica. They were indeed the highlight of our stay because of how kind and gracious they were. Always a big smile on their faces and hooked us up...

The property is 40 years old but well maintained. It may not be as flashy as new resorts but has a quiet charm. All rooms in the hotel have a balcony with an ocean view that is absolutely wonderful! October is considered rainy season yet it really doesn't effect that part of Costa Rica so you can secure good deals...

I have just read collie 88's review and I agree with everything she said. Only we did not see the monkeys. The room in the hotel was spacious, the view stunning and the staff entirely accommodating.
