We stayed at Casas Del Sol for just 3 nights at the beguining of June. I knew it was up in the hills north of Saree Beach but we where not prepared for the problems this caused. We where taken to the villa by a complimentary taxi then back to saree to hire 2 quad bikes for 2 days by the taxi driver. The quads cost £50 a day, very expensive, but as we had our 14 year old son with us there was no other option, we did use 2 taxis on our last night when the quads had been returned and these cost thb 500 for a 4 minuite ride. This was because of how steep the roads up to the villa are and very poorly maintained so nobody wants to take there vehicles up there. We saw the person who met us at the pier and gave us the keys and info on the villa but didnt see them afterwards , even when we left, so you feel a bit isolated. The Villa itself is very nice but to remote and not maintained outside as it is just jungle really. It does need some little things improving to make it more comfotable. There where sun beds but no cusions on them, No mosquito coils ect which is necessary, there are lots of insects so you cant be squimish. There was a smell of sewerige rom the double room bathroom and no where enough towels for both showering and using the pool, and the pool towels not good quality. These are only minor things and other than that the villa and the viewsare great just far to remote and expensive to get to.
