We stayed at the Sol Y Mar in Zancudo in February 2008 and would never go back. We spent time in different parts of the country and had really great experiences, and only stayed for a few days at this place where we really did not have a good time. The beach is gorgeous but other places nearby are a better choice than Sol Y Mar. We felt the owners (ex-pats) of Sol Y Mar were neither friendly nor helpful and the food was way overpriced and of doubtful quality at best. Most of the guests like to spend a lot of time drinking at the bar until late at night, -hey, to each his own and i've been there done that in the past - but they make a lot of noise, and if that is not your scene, you are actually made to feel like you don't belong by the management. We felt the food was way overpriced and of doubtful quality. If we were to go back again to Zancudo we would definitely stay at Los Cocos next door where the owners actually care about their guests and the attitude is more respectful, classy and in keeping with this beautiful, natural country. Sol Y Mar is a cut below the rest and not worth the few dollars you would save instead of staying at Los Cocos where Susan and Andrew clearly know what they are doing compared to the management at Sol Y Mar.
