The low season rates for the cabins was a pleasant surprise, and we actually didn't find better deals in the rest of our trip along to southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Rick, Lori and the rest of the staff were friendly and very helpful at all times, and even though we only stayed two nights, we were sad to... More

my third time at sol y mar and it keeps getting better! the owners, rick and lori, do an excellent job running this place. it is unfair to call them the hosts, because all the staff at sol y mar are your hosts even the walter the groundskeeper, not just rick and lori. i was lucky enough to be there...

Stayed here with my best friends and we had a blast! This place actually gave me the idea to move to CR! Rick and Lori are the coolest hosts and they make your stay at Sol Y Mar incredibly fun! They know the area, they know everyone, and whatever you want, if its possible they make it happen. It is... More

I have stayed at this location for 4 out of the last six years. I have read the reviews. I love this place! Ok Rick and Lori are just a little off beat but they have have always provided a great stay. The cabins's are dated and rough, just what I'm looking for. The beach is outstanding, where else can...

Playa Zancudo has to be one of the most beautiful beaches I've visited and walked... and I loved the laid back atmosphere of the small town and the people I met along the beach or along the street. However, as good a deal as Sol y Mar is (and it is), Lori, the owner's s/o has a lot to learn... More

I had no idea that this guest was dissatisfied. No complaints were made during 2 previous visits and a 3rd booking was made to return the following week, although that last reservation ended up as a no-show, and we were left with an unoccupied cabin for 3 nights. I must have upset this former guest by chastising her over the... More

Fantastic location in sleepy Zancudo where you look out at the sea from the porch of your cabin. Watch picture perfect sunsets from the lively bar (sports on TV and good live music once in a while) where your friendly hosts (Rick and Lori) and the lovely Karla will make you delicious cocktails or serve you ice-cold beer. Big tasty... More

We spent 3 nights at Sol y mar in Dec. This is a real get away from it all spot. Rick and Lori do a great job of making you feel welcome and seeing to your needs. You will be greeted in the morning by one of them with a big smile and ask how your night was. Walking this... More

In Golfito for business and stayed here for an evening. The boat ride through the mangroves down to Zancudo was awesome. Cabins were clean and comfortable. No A/C, but none of us had any difficulty sleeping. It was great to get away from everything, but still have wifi. I would absolutely, go again. The locals were incredibly gracious and appreciated...
