“also disappointed”
Reviewed 11 October 2011

We weren't disappointed in the rooms. However, the noise bylaw was not communicated to the people from out of town that rented sixteen rooms for a wedding. If we would have known we were going to be hassled and bothered every day that we were at Playa Del Sol we would have picked another resort to give our $30,000 to. We were told there was a pool and hot tub but by 3pm we had to find security to open up the gates so that we could use them. We opened up a towel to dry after a shower to find all kinds of leaves and twigs which ended up in the tub and on the person drying off.

Bottom line...rooms were great....but don't plan to have others in your room after 11 pm or you WILL get a $200 fine. This was not made clear to our group (about 16 rooms) when we booked for a wedding vacation for a week from Sept 27th-Oct 4th. As our rooms were already paid for in full - there was nothing we could do when we found out the 'rules'. The pool and hot tub entrance was locked when we had a beautiful sunny day so we were unable to get in unless we jumped the fence. If you want to make this your home with small children, the noise curfew would be welcomed but that's not why we were there. Conflicting housing arrangements at Playa Del Sol make it not so attractive for vacationers. Amanda was very helpful & professional but 'Security' was snotty & so tight we almost choked!! Not happy. :(

16 rooms were rented at the Playa Del Sol from guests from Ontario and BC for a wedding being held in Kelowan As you are all aware, the cost is not a drop in the bucket.... Upon arrival of several guests between the hours of 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM,( all arriving at different times), we all met in the room belonging to the parents of the groom. At exactly 11:15 PM security was at her door advising we were too loud and if she had to come again, they would impose a $200.00 fine for each offence. Needless to say, the mother of the groom was very upset all week, for fear of anyone making too much noise. The next evening, we all met outside in the courtyard at another guests room. We bbq steaks and such. At 9:15 PM.. security at the door advising we were too loud. When we asked him if there had been a formal complaint, he advised that No, there was no complaint made. The parents of the bride had an informal meet & greet evening where again security showed up at 11:15 to complain.
We feel very dissapointed in Playa Del Sol for not advising this group of the ABSOLUTELY no noise policy. The organization should have known when 16 rooms are booked for one wedding that they should have advised us. After spending close to 30,000.00 at this resort and constantly being harassed, we all have a bit of a sour taste in our mouths about staying at this resort. All involved including the residents from the Kelowna area will definitely not recommending this resort......

We found Playa Del Sol to be wonderful for a relaxing vacation! Our condo was immaculate and well equipped and had an exceptionally comfy king sized bed. The owner had thought to leave us many 'extras' including a bottle of local wine! and the complex had a lovely pool / deck area as well as a fitness room and an adult lounge. The whole area was clean and well maintained and I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Some rooms face onto the main road - other onto lovely quiet patio areas or the pool so check before...

our family stayed in a 2 bedroom suite on the top floor for a week and have no complaints at all ! it's quiet, beds are big and comfy, and the apartment itself was large enough for the 3 of us. having a pool and hot tub in the complex is a bonus if you want to swim, but not go to the beach. nice to have self controlling air conditioning in the unit as well. good to have your own kitchen as we cooked our own meals to save money instead of always eating out, which can get boring and expensive. having a unit that faces away from the busy road is a bonus if you have a family and you want quiet at night. we would stay here again, and actually plan to do so.
