Just got back from Mexico, and Linda and Ray Wright have got it right! This lovely, small, secluded B&B was wonderful. Linda & Ray are fabulous hosts, attentive without being intrusive. They were always ready to help us out in any way, and couldn't have been warmer or more accommodating. Our room, Sunrise, was perfecly appointed: fabulous private terrace, large bathroom, great satellite TV (from Canada!). The grounds are beautiful, with an immaculately kept pool, and you are literally steps away from the ocean. The beach seems endless and is almost always empty, you can walk a long way without seeing anyone. This is the perfect spot for a real getaway. The Surf's Up cafe run by their daughter Leanne is right there, open for breakfast & lunch (though guest get a fine continental breakfast included, served by the pool). Leanne will fix you a wonderful private supper if you make plans ahead of time...we did, after consulting about what was available we decided on a pasta primavera - delicious, served under the stars...be sure you visit the cafe one way or the other.
One thing to keep in mind, El Sol La Vida is in Nuevo Mazatlan, so it's quite far from the malecon or Centro Mazatlan. You'll need a car or a cab to get just about anywhere. Linda and Ray were great about helping us get cabs - and there are buses too, if you speak Spanish and can find the right one. If you value seclusion, this is a fabulous place. If you need more action, grab a cab. But get to this little piece of paradise soon, we understand development is coming and before you know it, the high rise hotels will sprout! Right now, it's a private paradise, we hope it keeps it's charm no matter what!
