Do not be fooled by the photographs on the owners web site. They make the cabins look quite nice, but in reality they are rough. We paid extra for the stand alone cabin with the "unique river rock shower ". Our cabin was dark smelly and full of insects. We used a whole can of insect spray before we were able to go in to our bathroom.
The cabins needed updating cleaning and the rust scraping off of the window bolts so you were not forced to live in constant darkness. No attention was paid to details an example being the mismatched bedding, no fridge or proper working fans.
At the time we stayed the owners were away and Willy was incharge. May be this was the reason for the hotel's relaxed atitude He was a nice enough guy and answered our questions if we approached him but didn't really want to know other than that. He ran the bar and seemed more content chatting to locals or reading the paper. Willy's brother worked during the week and he was the total opposite, friendly, helpful and always had time for a chat.
The food, I can't fault the food everything was cooked fresh and there was lots of it. The girl who cooked worked hard but again was not at all friendly.
All in all we couldn't wait to leave this place and move on to Puerto Jiminez where we had a brilliant time staying at Palms.
The Sol y mar is cheap and you get what you pay for. I would have rather paid a little extra and stayed at Los cocos further up the road. They were fully booked ........I wonder why !!!!!!
