We stayed in the Cabanas for 6 nights, Dec 23rd to Dec 28th 2011. The road to get there was rough to say the least but once we arrived it was great. Rick and Lori where gracious hosts. The food was great, the beer cold, the beach and ocean were fabulous. The rooms were nice, no frills other than two nice fans and tight screens on the windows to keep out the mosquitoes at night. Our large family fit nicely into two cabanas. It was a very relaxed atmosphere, no shoes, no shirt, no problem which is the way it should be at this beach front paradise. We had wireless in the bar area and we could even get it in our cabana a few times. Highlights were the fabulous waves and sunsets. In the evening the mosquitoes did come out especially when the breeze stopped but what else would you expect in a place call "Mosquito". The long drive was worth it. Rick arranged for a driver to pick us up and the airport, even though our plane was almost an hour late we made it to Sol y Mar by about 11 p.m. in time or a refreshment at the bar.
We had discussed with Rick the desire to do some activities while we were there and Rick had made arrangements ahead of time, emailing and communicating with us prior to our arrival about each one and they all worked out great thanks Rick.
This place met or exceeded my expectations and will be a family highlight for the rest of our lives.
