Give as a Gift

Secluded Resort Hiding on Tropical Hillside

An azure sky hangs over the Gulf of Papagayo by day, and as the sun submerges each evening, it speckles the area’s rugged hills, lush rainforest, and shimmering sea in bright-red hues. Such a peaceful, picturesque scene takes place daily in plain view at Las Gaviotas Bar and La Bahía Restaurant, the on-site restaurant at Villas Sol Hotel & Beach Resort. Although it is open for breakfast and lunch, the popular buffet really heats up at dusk, when diners sit beside the setting sun to sample classic French, Spanish, Italian, and Costa Rican dishes.

Luxuries abound in the standard rooms, but none hold a candle to the views of the Gulf from the private outdoor balconies, each replete with ample room for rooftop activities such as yoga and extreme falconry. Relaxation and recreation is the modus operandi—the resort features two pools, an adults-only jacuzzi, and activities that cater to children and adults. Three bars are spread throughout the resort, including a swim-up bar shaded by a palapa roof and Romance Bar, home to nightly karaoke. Because of its location on the hillside, there's no immediate beachfront access, but guests can walk to the beach in 5–10 minutes, and an internal transportation shuttle to the beach departs every 10–15 minutes, easily connecting guests with the surf.

Guanacaste, Costa Rica: Exotic Beaches and World-Class Surfing

White boats can be seen bobbing in the clear blue Gulf from Villas Sol's hillside perch, bending completely to the will of the waves that toss them around. The sea calls to all who visit the tropical hideaway, inviting them to dive into aquatic activities including snorkeling, sailing, and ocean kayaking. The area is well-known for its skimboarding, but those seeking more daring aquatic thrills can catch some gnarly waves 30 minutes from the resort or practice cannonballs in a stranger’s pool. Adventure and wildlife tours can be arranged through the resort's partner, Swiss Travel Service, which shuttles explorers to exotic places such as the Coter Rainforest and the Monteverde Cloud Forest.

I enjoyed the two different pool areas. The staff was friendly.

The food needs to be cooked better and more options. I thought the larger pool was adult only, not sure if I read it on the website, but was disappointed that I wasn't able to relax at either pool.
