We are glad we decompressed at this top quality B&B north of Mazatlan's Golden Zone. Ray and Linda are so welcoming and as soon as you arrive they fill you in on options, how to get around, even planning day trips with you and other guests if you are so inclined. We didn't really miss having a car. Ray even... More

My wife and I winter in Mazatlan every year. This year, after a very hectic few weeks dealing with a family destination wedding, we decided to spend a 3 day weekend at El Sol. We were able to unwind and our hosts Ray & Linda made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Our room was great. Had a private terrace,... More

So glad we stayed here, can't say enough good things about the location, the amenities, or the hosts. It's an oasis, loved every minute of it! It's a little out of the way, but only a few minutes of driving has you at restaurants and shops. We enjoyed being able to take all that in and then retreat away from... More

El Sol La Vida is far from the madding crowd but near enough to get the bus, taxi or pulmonia to town. It is set on a beach north of the Golden Zone. Very relaxing and charming hosts, Linda and Ray. Continental breakfast was filling. Lunch was obtainable from daughter Leanne's Surfs Up cafe. The garden room I stayed in... More

Just got back from Mexico, and Linda and Ray Wright have got it right! This lovely, small, secluded B&B was wonderful. Linda & Ray are fabulous hosts, attentive without being intrusive. They were always ready to help us out in any way, and couldn't have been warmer or more accommodating. Our room, Sunrise, was perfecly appointed: fabulous private terrace, large... More

El Sol la Vida is one of those places that makes you feel good fortune has somehow brought you there. Ray and Linda are wonderful hosts. Generous and genuine. You have everything you need before you need it. Laying by the pool in the heat and Ray suddenly provides a cold beer and you think "Hey, that's just what I... More

We stayed at this place for three nights and found it lacking. Right in front of it at the beach is a crumbled protective wall. The bed was kind of soft, breakfast was a laugh, luke warm coffe and some bread. Please don't call it a B & B. The pool is very cold so it is kind of useless.... More

We value TripAdvisor and its reviewers as they help provide others with guidelines of their experiences. Unfortunately, there are always two sides and in this case I feel it is important to voice the second because its unfair to small businesses when they work hard to provide quality services and customers voice their opinions in a negative manner. We have... More

At some point, me and my girlfriend were the only ones on the huge beach. The bed was great to sleep in. Lovely place, honest, tasteful, discrete, and charming, run by a friendly family. Fway from the crowded beaches and loud speakers blasting music all day long. Comfortable rooms and great service, personalised and well priced. You get much more... More
