Hotel Villa del Sol
Ranked #12 of 13 Hotels in Isla Verde
Reviewed 7 August 2012

I tried very, very hard not to hate this place but it was an absolute mess. There was one woman working there that night doing every possible job. She was the receptionist, cleaning lady, bartender, and valet all in one. The room was small and cramped despite having been booked for 5 adults. The towels looked dirty, the only way into the bathroom was through the bedroom, and just being in the hotel made me itch. Then, to top everything off, the doorknob was broken, It would jam every time I tried to open it and then would just come right off the door. We didn't even stay the night. after an hour or so we managed to get a room at the Intercontinental and left this place as quickly as possible.

Convenient location close to airport and beaches. About the most likeable staff we encountered on the island. Some free parking adjacent to the hotel. Many restaurants within easy walking. Cockfight arena just across the street.

Room Tip: Internet okay near lobby. Spotty elsewhere.

I took my sister to Puerto Rico for a girls getaway and we stayed at the Hotel Villa de Sol. We chose the hotel because it was affordable and the pictures of the rooms and bright yellow Spanish style building won us over. We were EXTREMELY disappointed! Let me first say that... IT LOOKS NOTHING LIKE THE PICTURES advertised on the internet. The bar and restaurant were closed the entire time we were there. When we got to our room it was hot and muggy because the a/c had not been turned on as a courtesy and the room reeked of some sort of perfume/disinfectant. The table and chairs on our balcony were covered in mildew. The headboards and frames on our beds were not secured, the pillows were flat, the bed was terribly uncomfortable and we woke up our first morning there with bites on our legs, arms and torso! OMG!... The iron was broken, the ironing board cover was covered in stains and don't even think about asking for extra towels or pillows! They acted as if I were asking for their first born! It was two of us and only one small hand towel. I love my sister but neither of us desired to share the same washcloth. Our room didn't get cleaned until late in the afternoon, and again two people, one washcloth. It was close to the airport so we knew we'd hear airplanes go by... but nothing could have prepared us for what we heard. We could have sworn that the planes literally taking off on the same street! We paid $109 a night, but it was worth every bit of $50 bucks a night. I'm a flight attendant and I'm usually in and out of hotels up to 20 times a month and this was by far THE WORST PLACE EVER!!!

There is no coffee machine inside the room. We were told to do it by ourselves when we asked for a delivery of a new bath tissue. It's terrible.
I don't think the staff pay enough attention to do the room, since the mattress is displaced and the pillows are more like being thrown on the bed randomly.
Noise from everywhere, the air conditioner, the traffic outside, the airport nearby, makes it impossible to fall asleep without earplugs.

pros: open style hotel- nice staff- rooms were clean, clean pool, a/c working, great location walking distance to beach nigthlife resturants supermarket and casinos..... no problems with water or any type of bugs and was staying on 2nd floor-- we took 3 rooms and didnt have a prob with any..

loved their little cat that sleeps in the lobby near the pool- i call it the cat the hotels mascot-as they have a name for her-pet lover here!

cons- no elevators- had to walk to room on second floor via stairs.. food ordered from bar took a long time- no place to park...

we stayed on the second floor and had no problems... the pool closes early and of course if you are looking for a 5 star hotel with perfect service this is not the hotel for you.. but if you are on a budget and just need to spend a few days to tour the island and visit its great!!

i have read a few reviews and never realized how picky people can be when paying $100-$120 a night in a tourist area where the surrounding hotel are a min of $250 a night... umm what do you expect? how the rooms were painted and if the blinds were not opening and if the towel holder was loose is really not a priority of mines when i stay at a hoteel.. but i could guarantee that it was clean and affordable and the staff ladies were friendly...
