My gf and I stayed two nights in February of 2012. Though fairly far away from the bus routes, we were able to taxi to and fro with ease... The room was excellent, the pool sublime. The beach was mostly ours, the grounds of the Sol Y Arena was well kept, and the outdoor cooking space was perfect. We really... More

If you want to relax and get away from the hustle then this is the perfect place. Its not a party hostel. Its right on a very quiet beach. The rooms are big and clean.

A really nice place to relax and enjoy the nature, the location is really calm, The rooms are clean and comfortable. Maybe a little far for acapulco, but we don't want to leave the place either. The family who runs it are really friendly. Like most of the others reviewers, I´d like to stayed longer!!

The location is beautifull and most certainly very relaxing. You will receive a warm and friendly welcome. The owners can tell you all about the area, must see and do! The rooms are clean, as well as the kitchen. Go check it out!!

A great place to relax and enjoy the nature. Very friendly owners and you will receive a very warm welcome. The large rooms rooms are very comfortable and clean. Pilar and Clemente can tell you everything about places to see and things to do. The local Volkwagen buses can bring you everywhere in the area for only 6 pesos.

I cannot believe how lucky I was to make last minute reservations here. Sol y Arena is such an idyllic and peaceful place, and the family who runs it is so sweet and accommadating. The room was very comfortable and I felt instantly at home. I only wish I could have stayed longer!

Clean, comfortable, beautiful, and cheap! Very peaceful place to stay. Had a fantastic time, minutes from some of the area's best kept secrets! Ask the owner for where to find little pieces of paradise.
