Purchased this trip on Groupon, and was not disappointed. I was nervous about the trip after reading some of the reviews, but it wasn't bad. It is clean, and the concierges are very helpful, (desk staff is not as helpful, but there is also a language barrier.) The bartenders were good and poured good drinks. The beach is pretty and...

We got a Groupon deal and when we arrived, the hotel was booked, we got the last room, very noisy by the pool and had to cut the vacation short and left next day, so I might have a bit prejudgment, but I'll try to be objective. So step by step. 1. The location. It's on a fairly steep hill,...

Great Hotel. Rooms were okay - clean, nothing crazy. Location was pretty cool, up a big hill (not really worth walking up/down but the truth is there is no reason too) They have a shuttle that runs pretty much whenever it's needed, nonstop most of the day. Brings you right infront of the beach! They have a station right in...

From reading past reviews about Villas Sol I was really worried about the type of experience that I would have here. My husband and I stayed for a week and we had such a great time! The staff was so nice and so helpful with anything you need. From Alonso, Suerez, Yolan to Fabian at the front desk they all...

I read all the reviews that I could before our vacation to Villa Sol. I also purchased the Groupon and traveled with 3 friends to celebrate nursing school graduation. We just got back and I had a wonderful time! Most of the reviews regarding Villa Sol that were negative were for pretty petty reasons if you ask me... the resort...

My adult daughter and I stayed for 6 days and could not have been happier. The architecture and decorating are unique and lovely. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Our room was cleaned everyday. The view from our room was of the Pacific - spectacular. The restaurant had a huge variety of great food.

In early May, we spent a week at Villas Sol thru RCI. We were fortunate enough to get a 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit, with its own swimming pool! Granted the pool was small, and only about 3.5' deep, but it was really nice to have this private pool right out our back door. We were in unit 23, which...

At first we were a bit skeptical, but I caved in and it was SO worth it! PuraVida massage therapy is run my Terri and his really talented massage therapists. The prices were very reasonable and it was the best massage my husband and I had ever gotten. We definitely recommend it, especially right after/before a length flight!

Villas Sol: “Pura Vida!” We stayed one week in the hotel (all-inclusive) and two weeks in a hillside Villa. Our hotel accommodation was lovely overlooking the pool, restaurant and bar. The Villa was absolutely breathtaking over looking Playa Hermosa. While we loved the resort it truly was the employees who made our stay so memorable. We were pleasantly surprised that...
