We stayed eight days at the Playa del Sol and had a nice time. We had unit 601A and it's a nice unit for up to 4 people. I highly recommend using an agency to rent out a unit at this or any other time share type property. We used pvrpv and they were able to secure the exact unit that we wanted on the ocean front side of this property. When I contacted the reservations desk directly, they weren't able to offer me a better rate or a guaranteed ocean front room.
The facilities were safe and mostly clean. I suspect that every unit is different in terms of quality of furnishings/fixtures. Unit 601A needs some updating in terms of furniture and bedding but it was acceptable. The balcony furniture was terrible/unusable and desperately needs to be replaced. The pool was marginal -- it had some mold around the outside edges that could easily be cleaned up by the staff with a simple daily scrub. There's no in-room safe, but there are deposit boxes available. They did attempt to sell us the time-share option, but we just politely declined and it wasn't a problem. Note that the September heat is really oppressive!
Overall, this is a great location and the oceanfront rooms are quiet and have wonderful views and easy beach access. Try the Kit Kat Club for breakfast. It's wonderful and just a block away.
