Stayed a week and enjoyed magnificent service, clean rooms well serviced, a super location with breathtaking sunsets, a well managed bilingual office and a concierge who is absolutely and simply outstandingly thorough, courteous and helpful beyond the call! Only deficiency is the effectiveness of communication between RCI and the resort. We would love to return and probably will!!

For the most part, service at Villas Sol was great. Yoselyn was in regular contact with me before leaving the US. Mariam was one of the first staff to greet us at the front desk/member services area. She helped throughout our stay with questions regarding the resort and tours. She helped us print our boarding passes the day before we...

Wow, I have never had such a fabulous view from a hotel! The main restaurant, bar and pool at the hotel building are high a top a hill over looking Playa Hermosa Bay. And the views at sunset are the best anywhere. The all inclusive option was a treat after having been 4 days without meals elsewhere. Our room in...

Resort: Overall the resort was in pretty good shape for its age. I found the grounds to be clean and buildings to be in well kept up. I'll have to echo some of the other reviewers in that the hillside that the resort sits on presents some challenges. Being able bodied I didn't have any issues, but the older vacationers...

We stayed in the hotel portion of the resort which is located halfway up a hillside. The hotel was clean and the staff were excellent. The beach was a bit of a trek but there were regular shuttles to and from it. The buffets were varied and very appetizing. We thoroughly enjoyed our activities/tours and when we elected to remain...

We stayed in the hotel portion of the Villas Sol so I have to review that only. There were many villas of all shapes and sizes up on the hills. We had an oceanview room in the hotel. It is an older resort that was probably built in the earlier part of the 1970's. It is well mantained and cleaned...

Went here for a week for my birthday. I give it three stars because they have some minor improvements they can do, otherwise I would've given it four stars. Upon checking in we realized that the hotel put us in the wrong room. We requested a room with the personal pool in the back but what they put us in...

I cannot stress how much mobility and fitness will be an issue if you suffer from any impairment. I broke my ankle back in January and was off crutches and in a walking air cast.

A lovely place to stay (All-Inclusive) local drinks and the variety of food was good. No real evening performances other than afternoon volleyball, bingo, Zumba, etc. The pools are clean and good. The people are friendly and eager to help. Transportation is provided by the resort with a change for hotel and condos and Reception.
