Stayed four nights on an all-inclusive basis - a vacation plan sales promo. The setting is truly lovely and it's easy to walk to other Playa Hermosa establishments and number of which will be recommended in other reviews. The rooms are clean and the air conditioning, hot water, etc. are all more than adequate. The drinks are a bit weak...

My sister and I had 4 nights and 5 days here.. Feb 4 thru 8. The staff was always kind and helpful, always asking how are you, smiling, and letting you know that they will do whatever you need to make your stay comfortable. The food was not its high point and the beach will not rate as most beautiful...

We had a great stay at Villa Sol. The rooms were clean, food was good and staff were lovely. The beach was AMAZING. Shuttle buses were prompt and easy to get around. Wifi was disappointing, patchy and cost money. The wildlife on the resort was great, iguanas, monkeys, etc. Staff went out of their way to please. Fine dinning was...

Low key family resort with gorgeous views from every room. Built on a steep hill but has shuttle service between buildings and down to the beach for those who chose not to walk. If you get the "all inclusive" package, food is average but lots of choices of what to eat. Beer wine mixed drinks all included and dispensed liberally....

We rented a 3 bedroom villa for 6 of us and had plenty of room. The villas are located on the lower portion of the resort so you don't have the great views from your villa. It's a trade off between views and space. We didn't do the all inclusive---figured there was no reason when you have a full kitchen....

I wouldn't recommend this resort to anyone, the staff is nice but they have no empowerment to do anything. The Resturant's are very limited and this is an all "inclusive" resort but I believe this is more of a limited service hotel. I found a beetle on my food which was beyond disgusting and forced me to be concerned about...

Before booking, we read all the reviews (good and bad) and had a good idea of what to expect. It is a 3.5 Star Hotel and priced accordingly. For our group (2 couples) it is what we wanted - reasonably priced leaving money for tours and adventures outside of the resort. The food, while good, does get repetitious but you...

We rented a villa for 5 nights with my family. It was a decent villa with a very nice view but don't plan on staying in the hotel for the amenities.
