This place is FAR from Tamagringo. If that's what you seek, it might be right. Great pool. Tico hospitality. Backyard BBQ. A bit far from the beach but walkable. And the beach, Playa Grande, is out of this world. I grew up in Hawaii, have high standards, and I consider this beach to be top shelf. My 10 year old... More

We came to Costa Rica for our honeymoon and stumbled upon Sol Y Luna on the Internet, and I am so thankful I did. This place is wonderful. The host, Alex, is extremely hospitable. He prepared us meals for supper and they were delicious. Cristian who also works with Alex was great and took care of us while we lounged... More

We spent several nights at Sol y Luna and loved every minute of it! Alex and the other guests were so nice, the pool is spectacular and the walk to the beach was especially memorable because of all of the monkeys living in the treetops! Alex's place felt like the Costa Rica we came to know and love 10 years... More

My wife and I have been playing and working in CR for 25 years and have stayed in a lot of places in the P. Grande area. The last few years we have stayed at S y L and always enjoy it. The cabinas are basic and supply all the needed amenities but it is an "authentic Tico experience". An... More

3 weeks was not long enough. Walking through the jungle every morning to the nicest beach in the world was special. Alex and staff were very helpful. Hopefully next year will be longer. Great space to get away from life's stress.

This is a gem in 1 of the most incredible towns ever! Very rustic, close to everything in town. Beautiful beaches and the locals in Playa Grande are beautiful! Pura VIDA!!! The staff at Sol y Luna is so friendly and Alex will give you tips for all of the local places to go.

I've stayed at Sol y Luna Lodge for a week, between the end November and the beginning of December. My stay at the lodge was more than wonderful! The location is perfect to visit Playa Grande and to have good time. The bungalows, very clean and spacious, are equipped with any kind of amenities, and are beautifully furnished. The beds... More

We decided to visit Playa Grande for a chance to see the leatherback turtles and surf the legendary waves. Luckily, we weren't disappointed on either count. Sol Y Luna Lodge was the perfect place to stay. Alex, the manager, is wonderful, and extremely personable. He went above and beyond to make sure that we enjoyed our time there. The bungalow... More

My time at the property was the low point of my vacation. The room had a very unpleasant odor to it. I tried airing it out during the afternoon and running the fan but the smell would not quit. There was no blanket, only a set of sheets on the bed and they were stained. The mosquito net did it's... More
