OK for the Price
It's a nice location and great for the price but the food was just ok. Ernesto was the best server. It's a lot of uphill walking if you don't want to wait for the shuttle so you have to be in descent shape.

My serene stay at Villas Sol
The villa was wonderful. The beds were comfortable and I slept well. The customer service of the hotel is quick and efficient when you call the reservation desk. I thought my room light was not working so I called the front desk and they sent someone within 2 hours. The repair man showed me the other light switch near the bedroom lamp area. The staff are super friendly and care if you are enjoying yourself also the shuttle drivers were very nice. I was so glad for the shuttle services. The next time I return to Costa Rica, I will stay here again. I felt safe and the food was excellent.

BEWARE!!!!! Not safe here.
I am not sure where to begin. From the beginning the staff was not very welcoming and the first thing they do when you arrive is try to get you to sign up for a sales pitch to buy property there and then over priced tours. You are taken to the area of your room and told where it is and I had to carry my own luggage up 3 flights of stairs. The bed was very uncomfortable and the wi/fi was only available in the lobby which was down two flights of stairs. The food and drinks were free but not good at all. Then on the last day there I went to the beach early and when I got back to my room the room safe was open and my credit cards and ID were missing. When I called the front desk they didn't even act like they cared!! They did not offer to assist me with cancelling the cards and I had to make them let me use their phone to do so. A " rent-a-cop" they have took my statement but I had to ask three times to get a copy for my records. I told them I wanted to call the real police but they kept telling me I would have to go down to the police department and it would take all day. They knew I was leaving for my daughter's wedding and didn't have time to do that. I want everyone to know that I would not go back there if they gave me free rooms and you should not waste your money going there.

Room only review.
We did not participate in the all inclusive scenario, just booked a room.The villas/rooms are located on a very hilly, gated property. There are no sidewalks along the tiny roads, but the hotel provides a shuttle bus that makes its rounds every 15 mins or so. Our room was very clean and modern. There are pools and restaurants/bars on the grounds, however we did not use them since we had a car and preferred exploring the area on our own.
