Villa Del Sol
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 April 2010

I can only say good things about Villa Del Sol. Its staff, its proprietor, its location, its facilies, its ambiance are all outstanding. The town in which it is located - Playas del Coco - has a wonderful beach in which the town government has invested.

Villa del Sol is exactly what you see on Serge's website or facebook. Nive pool. We stayed in a studio, had brbq everyday, walking distance to the beach. Did snorkling, went in a boat from 9 to 2PM, with some beverage and lunhc included, paid # 35.00/person. We left our best friend behind, Cleo, a very nice dog. Hope she's fine. We met nice French-Canadian people at Villa del Sol.

We had booked with Serge at Villa Del Sol in Playa del coco based on it's location and resonable rates. Based on other reviews and photos on-line we felt comfortable with our choice. Once we arrived it was just as we expected, good location close to town and the beach, nice pool, great breakfast every morning. The grounds and rooms where clean and the staff was very nice. Costa Rica is not a vacation place where you want to sit in a resport all day, there is too much to see and do. We were hours from many excursions (Arenal National Park, Monteverde Cloud Forest, and much more). On one of our off days from site seeing we were relaxing at the pool and then the beach where my girlfriend had an accident in the ocean, a large wave came down on her and she hit the bottom and broke her collar bone. Serge drove us to the doctors, x-ray clinic, and pharmacy in Liberia. He went above and beyond to help us, not sure what we would have done without his help, it made this situation much easier to deal with. Thanks again Serge! Villa Del Sol is everything you need while staying in coco. Windsor, Ontario, Canada

Villa Del Sol was a wonderful place to stay. There were 12 of us, so we had the entire bed and breakfast, though we did all of our own cooking. The staff was always available for help or questions, yet they were not hovering around. The villa was ours. Serge was extremely helpful, and kept in touch with us throughout our stay. We did have to ask for extra beach and pool towels. The villa was comfortable, with plenty of room for relaxation.

We enjoyed grilling out every night next to the pool.. The pool was well kept. When other guests were using it, it was not a distraction.

Serge reserved a tour guide/driver for us for the entire week. He was Randall Umana O. , owner of Shaman Tours. Randall was awesome...he provided suggestions for tours and assisted us in planning our time in Playa del Coco. Because we had young adults as well as parents, we sometimes did 4 different things in a day...private beach, snorkeling, surfing at Tamarindo, bull fights at night. He was always willing to take us wherever we chose to go, sometimes 4 of us, sometimes all 12 of us. Also, the young adults would go to town for the nightlife in the evening. They were comfortable doing this in their group.

Arenal National Park, hot springs, and canopy zip lining were fabulous. A long day, but well worth the time. Surfing at Tamarindo twice was a highlight, and diving with Summer Salt at the Catalinas was terrific. Saw reef sharks, spotted rays, moray eels, and turtles.

Randall is very informative and knowledgable about Costa Rica. We are planning on returning next year, and have invited Randall to be our guide.

The town is fun, funky, not too touristy ...very low key. The walk to town was 15 to 20 minutes. The beach from Villa Del Sol only a 5 minute walk. The beach is not a pristine white beach. For that, you need to go north or south a town or two.

Hope this was helpful
