My husband and I spent our Honeymoon at Villas Sol. The property and grounds were lovely, with views from everywhere. The whole resort was clean (including the pools), the food was delicious (if you are are even mildly adventurous), and the staff was friendly and helpful. It was not crowded at all - I have a feeling mid-April is not...

Just back from 4 nights at Villa Del Sol. Check-in was speedy and friendly. We were in the hotel part of the resort, which I would advise if you don't like hiking up & down hills. The villas are all up hill which would be quite inconvenient if you are having all your meals in the hotel. Our room was...

We found the hotel rooms to be clean and comfortable and modern. The safe in both our rooms did not work and even though we requested they be fixed, it didn't happen. The food was fine, not outstanding, but lots of choice. The weekends were very busy with local vacationers so things got a bit picked over. It is a...

Villas Sol is a hotel, but their main business is a time share resort. We went on a specially priced deal and stayed at the hotel. We weren't required to sit though the time share pitch, but it was always there in the background. The rooms in the hotel were very nice but not luxurious and the beds were VERY...

This is not a bad place. But be aware of what they offer, and if it fits what you want! Villas Sol is located on a hill. You can stay in the main hotel, or you may get a room up in the "villas". The shuttles run up and down the hill all day... and they should actually charge for...

We stayed here, via Groupon for a great price, for four days last week. I would echo the recommendations to stay in the Hotel (vice villa) and on the top floor. We had a wonderful 3rd floor king room. What can I say - all was very good. The staff was all very friendly, the place was secure and clean,...

We decided to stay here after purchasing a groupon for the place. With it being so cheap I really lowered my expectations of everything but when we got there I was sooo impressed.
