Nowhere in Mazatlan will you find a relaxing paradise like EL SOL LA VIDA. We stayed at our timeshare for 5 days prior and by the time I got to El sol, I was stressed!
Ray and Linda make their beautiful place , your personal home. Private pool, private beach. unbelievable value I recommend this place for honeymooners, weddings, or just a romantic private getaway.

Room tip: kokopelli is the biggest room, two beds and a private balcony

Amazing, unique, beautiful, fun, and relaxing are all words that I would use to describe my experience at El Sol la Vida. My partner and I spent 9 glorious days at this B&B. Ray and Linda, the owners, were incredible, welcoming, warm, and a lot of fun. They were one of the main reasons that made our trip so special.

The property itself is tranquil and inviting. It has a lovely garden, a fantastic pool, and breathtaking views of the sea. There is a café next door, which was closed during our visit; however, it will open its doors again this autumn. Ray and Linda’s daughter runs it, and I would imagine if she’s anything like Linda in the Kitchen, the place will offer deliciously scrumptious meals.

Our room was perfect. The bed was extremely comfy, the A/C worked well, the bathroom was spacious, the balcony was charming, and the décor was tastefully done. They do a great job in keeping it super clean.

I would recommend this place to people wanting to relax and rejuvenate. I would not recommend this place to people wanting to party.

We can’t wait for our next visit!

My husband and I havebeen traveling in Mexico for several years, me, been mexican know pretty much everything that Mexico has to offer.My husband, been Swiss, is in his constant pursue of the real mexican hidden jewel. I have to say that El Sol la Vida, has been the best experience we have had so far in Mexico. We had been in good hotels in Mazatlan before, we booked a night in El Sol la vida with poor expectations, but after 3mn of arriving we looked at each other and said.....yes....we found the hidden jewel. Away from the noise, traffic and crazy party, this b&b offered us an invigorating, refreshing experience. Linda and Ray are great hosts, they brought me back to the reason we are still here in Mexico, a beautifull place to live a dream.

From the time Ray picked us up until we left, I had a wonderful time. We were truly made to feel at home and Ray and Linda's beautiful house and garden, along with their great breakfasts, were the best part of the vacation. Two thumbs up – I definitely want to go back.
