Ray and Linda got this place in the sixties, renovated and expanded it since with great taste. Rooms are spacious, beds are heavenly and the showers are turbo powered. Few rooms, tasty home-style cooking for breakfast, and Ray and Linda's generous personalities make you feel at a dreamy version of your home.

El Sol La Vida, a charming adults-only bed-and-breakfast off a dusty dirt road in Nuevo Mazatlan, is a true oasis in the parched, sun-drenched Sinoloan scrubland – and a welcome alternative to the Golden Zone of tourists and high-rise hotels a few miles away. The peaceful, breezy pool area, with its palms and cacti, affords an incomparable unobstructed view of... More

Just beautiful! Ray and Linda , the owners don't just treat you like a guest, they treat you like family! Amazing location, private beach , pool, hot tub and beautiful deck with palm palapas. only 4 rooms that are all beautiful and include a beautiful breakfast every morning. The question is not if we will come back, it is when!

We stayed here for 2 weeks and love everything about it. The owners, Ray and Linda, are just terrific hosts and know how to treat their guests. It is always kept very clean and that includes the grounds, pool, patio and of course, your room. It felt like a private getaway. The kingsize bed made me want to sleep in... More

Excellent bed and breakfast type hotel on the beach. Adults only with 4 rooms. Ray and Linda are great hosts and can help you plan your day if needed. The restaurant next door has excellent food. The rooms are clean and comfortable and all have an outside sitting area.

July was humid, hot and raining all in one week. A lighting strike took out the wfi so had no Internet service...to that I say, who care the fun we had in town and the service and hospitality shown us at the resort made this one of the best trips ever. Can't wait to return for another visit.

We spent two weeks in Mazatlan, enjoying the hustle and bustle and noise but loved our last five days spent relaxing in peace and quiet in this gorgeous haven. We read books under the palapas watching the waves gently roll in, swam in the warm waters of the ocean and floated undisturbed in the beautiful pool. The whole place was... More

A place to unwind and get back to true relaxation without the distractions of hundreds of guests and loud music 24 hours a day. The location is breathtaking and the rooms are unique with great décor, clean as can be, and private. Breakfast is served outside in the morning on a small credenza. Our hosts then brought out additional items... More
