We recently stayed at Sol y Luna for a week and it was lovely. The cottages are charming, clean and comfortable, and set in a beautiful private garden. From your front porch all you see is tropical greenery and wildlife coming and going. One morning as we were having breakfast we saw a troupe of at least 3 dozen howler monkeys crossing through the trees right in front of us!
The beach is a 5 min walk down the lane and it's beautiful - you can only swim at high tide because of the rocks, but that is what most of the beaches in that area are like.
We took the bus back and forth to Montezuma and Cabuya - it runs every 2 hours and cost $1.
We also took taxis occasionally to come back at night if we went out to dinner (last bus leaves Montezuma at 4:15) You really don't need a car.
As many others have said, Patricia and Simon are great hosts - they give you all the information you need as soon as you get there and will willingly make restaurant and taxi reservations for you - they even did personal laundry for us!
We tried 2 of the local restaurants they recommended and both were excellent - a little place in Cabuya with fabulous food and Los Artistes in Montezuma, where we had a wonderful, romantic dinner right on the beach, lit by candlelight. Loved it!
Sol y Luna is a quiet, peaceful retreat to come back to after a day exploring, and I wish we could have stayed longer.
