Resolven (Welsh: Resolfen) is a small village in South Wales. It is situated in the Vale of Neath, next to the A465 Heads of Valleys Road. Resolven is also the name of an electoral ward and a community coterminous with the village, in Neath Port Talbot county borough.

In the immediate surrounding areas there are a number of industrial sites, which have become somewhat run down during the 1980s and 1990s. The popular Rheola indoor market is located near the village on the site of an old industrial factory.

The larger surrounding area has much attractive and barely touched countryside. It is the former residence of MP Peter Hain.

Resolven has played host to one of the best known stages of the Wales Rally GB for many years.

Resolven (Solfen) - From 'A Topographical Dictionary of Wales' (1849)
RESOLVEN (SOLFEN), a township, in the parish of Lantwit-juxta-Neath, union and hundred of Neath, county of Glamorgan, South Wales, 7 miles (N. E. by E.) from Neath; containing 500 inhabitants. This place is situated in the upper part of the parish, near the left bank of the river Neath, where the mountains are lofty and rugged, and their declivities and the glens well covered with timber. It comprises 5000 acres, of which 2000 are common or waste. Solven Hill is an elevated mountain in the hamlet, at the western base of which, overlooking the Neath, are the remains of Glyn Castle; the streams that flow into that river down the glens of the mountains form many pleasing cascades. Here is a chapel of ease to the parochial church. The tithes have been commuted for £70, of which £55 are payable to the impropriators, and £15 to the rector.
