Their breakfast is excellent, with a variety of made-to-order eggs, bread and fantastic fresh bread, juices etc. All tables have a view of the sea, which is just a few steps away :) The lunch wa so-so but dinner was...

A wonderful peaceful hotel on the beach with loungers facing out to sea. Very friendly staff and good food. A quiet peaceful location. I went at the end of a touring holiday with a friend. It was a wonderful ending to an amazing holiday.

When I booked our trip, it was difficult to decide which hotel to stay at. We liked what we read about the Bahia del Sol, being a smaller, friendly resort, and away from the busy "all-inclusive" resort settings. We were not disappointed with our stay there. The atmosphere is low-key and relaxing, surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens. The staff was... More

Spent 4 relaxing days here after traipsing the jungles South and East. What an amazing location. Staff is great and friendly. Food options are good. Rooms are very nice and facilitate buying groceries and eating in if you want. Only complaint is the very poor lighting in the suites (likely due to an attempt to use energy efficient bulbs). Monkeys... More

We really enjoyed our 4-night stay here. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is that our suite (#204) had poor lighting and dated decor. It was clean and spacious though, and included a fully equipped kitchen. The rest of the facility - grounds, pool, beach and restaurant were all first rate and the staff was exceptionally friendly.... More

This is a really nice, small resort. It is well planned - for its size, there seems to be just the right amount of space devoted to pool, open green space for relaxing and viewing the ocean, restaurant, plus a lush, well-kept garden area. There are only about 25 units, two-thirds of which are suites. Our two-bedroom suite was wonderful... More
