Villa Sol y Mar
Ranked #1 of 41 Huatulco B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Huge villa, clean, well equipped kitchen, BBQ grill, amazing views, quiet - what more can you ask?
Oh yes, having pancakes for breakfast :) Well they do it to.
This place is really good for a few couples/family/friends and the price was very decent as well.
Wifi worked well also. There is no TV so if you need one stay at home :) We didn't need it.

You must have a car to travel this area as all beaches and restaurants requires driving there.

We stayed at Sol y Mar with our children (2 yrs old) and a couple of friends and had the greatest time. The villa is great and the staff are very attentive. Amazing sunsets and great view in general. The rooms were well maintained and comfortable. Note that the hike to the beach is very steep and not recommended for children -- and all other beaches require a drive. That's the only drawback worth mentioning.

I've been going to Huatulco for a couple years and Villa Sol y Mar is hand-down a better option (in price, location and amenities) than any other hotel or resort. Wayne and Ace are great. The accommodations are absolutely clean and comfortable. And the view is spectacular. Spent a week at Villa Sol y Mar and wish we had been there longer.

I couldn't find one reason to complain, and find it hard to imagine how others did. We will be back. Thanks Wayne for the great trip!

My husband and I spent a few blissful and sun-drenched days at Villa Sol y Mar. It was the perfect escape from the bustle and congestion of Mexico City. Just a quick plane ride from Mexico City, Huatulco is the ideal getaway. We loved the relaxed atmosphere, the fantastic views, the refreshing breezes, and the hospitality at Villa Sol y Mar. Wayne was a gracious and helpful host. He helped us set up a fabulous snorkel excursion through Hurricane Divers, gave us a tour of the town, and shared local knowledge of the history of the community. We felt completely relaxed and well-cared for throughout our stay. The rooms were simple yet comfortable and included lovely balconies. Breakfast was delightful (I loved the good Mexican coffee and the fresh fruit!), and the staff were friendly and courteous. Ace, the canine in residence, was a perfect companion while relaxing by the pool. Taxis were safe and convenient ways to get around (about 50 pesos per ride in and around town and 220 pesos to and from the airport), and we found it quite easy to around. We recommend picking up a few snacks at a local store and taking a picnic lunch to any of the nearby beaches. We can't wait for our next visit to enjoy all that Huatulco and Villa Sol y Mar have to offer.

Villa Sol Y Mar is clean, functional and luxurious. You will make fast friends with owners Wayne, Marcy, and Ace. They are fun and gracious hosts, having vast knowledge of Huatulco and surrounding areas. A worry free place to stay to maximize your Huatulco vacation no matter what you may desire. A seamless experience from initial inquiry to check out.

Our first time to Huatulco and Villa Sol y Mar and both were way above expectations. I have vacationed in Puerto Vallarta, Cancun, Mazatlan and Ixtapa; and Huatulco is by far the best "feel" I have experienced in Mexico. Wayne and Marcy not only graciously share their beautiful home but provide an insider's view to shops, restaurants, tours and beaches. Their home is open to the sun, view and breezes and is architectually elegant in the traditional Mexican manner. I enjoyed the peace and quiet and because of the location of the villa being on the outskirts, we also enjoyed brilliant views of the night sky unhindered by light pollution.

Luckily for those wanting a hockey fix, Canadians are in the majority of vacationers to Huatulco and Randy (from Saskatchewan) at Senor Pucks in Santa Cruz has provided a venue to catch any NHL game you want. We toured the beautiful and mostly empty beaches of Bahias de Huatulco National Park by boat and the snorkelling was outstanding. An evening visit to the La Crucecita town square (especially on Sundays) is a must to see the Mexican tradition of families gathering to socialize and spend time together. La finca de los Vaqueros in La Crucecita is an incredible BBQ experience that will leave you overfed but the flavours are incredible and worth the after dinner discomfort.

These are but a few highlights of our trip and I can't stress enough that because Wayne and Marcy are ex-pat "locals" our quality of vacation was of a much higher standard than it would have been if we were in Huatulco on our own for the first time. We will be back and I highly recommend staying at the Villa Sol y Mar to anyone wanting a quiet, relaxing and fulfilling vacation.

The Villa Sol Y Mar is everything you want in a Winter getaway B&B. Our second stay was as good as the first. Marcy and Wayne are great hosts. Its a perfect place to do as little or as much as you want. Far enough out of town to enjoy the quiet and yet just a 50 peso Taxi ride to the center of La Crucecita. The sunsets over the pool are priceless. We will be back!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The peaceful ambiance of the Villa Sol y Mar is the ultimate in a relaxing vacation. Every room is designed to capture the tropical breezes and beautiful ocean views. With only five suites, there are no crowds or fighting for space at the private 40'infinity pool. Each of the 5 spacious suites features queen size beds, private bath, mini-fridge, air conditioner, ceiling fan and large private veranda overlooking the ocean. The poolside gathering area is a great spot to visit with other guests while watching the setting sun. You receive a complimentary breakfast and have the opportunity to share the use of the kitchen. The beach access is a block away from the villa and well worth the adventure climb up and down the hill. Like a lot of secluded beaches in Huatulco you'll find these gems formed between the mountainsides of the Oaxacan coast. Your hosts, Wayne and Marcy, are available on site November through April, and our administrator Pauline from May through October, to make sure your holiday is one of the best ever! ... more   less
