This was our second visit to beautiful Huatulco in recent years and after trying a highly rated local resort our first time we decided to try something more unique (Villa Sol y Mar), which turned out being a great decision! We had the pleasure of staying at Sol y Mar for one week and we will certainly stay here again soon.
Highlights include the clean, comfortable and spacious accommodations combined with very caring and attentive service (muchas gracias Elsa & Pedro!). The location is fantastic, secure and well maintained, with an amazing ocean view and peaceful surroundings filled with positive energy. We enjoyed spending our time in the refreshing infinity pool, reading, doing yoga, watching the amazing sunsets and gazing at the stars -- and eating as much of the fresh local produce as possible. Having access to the kitchen and grill was important to us, as we frequently took advantage of the ability to cook our own meals (note that breakfast including local coffee is served daily). We did not really feel any desire or need to leave the Villa, other than to buy produce and supplies so that we would not have to leave again!
Note if you are a beach person (and somehow not satisfied with the ocean view infinity pool) the Villa does have beach access but it requires some steep stair climbing (bonus=exercise). The Villa has air conditioning, but we never found the need to use it and thoroughly enjoyed the cool evening breeze coming into our room along with the tranquil sounds of the ocean surf.
Suggest you stop reading the reviews and make your reservation now!
- 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
