“Right on the beach!”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

We went there with a friend and we had a nice cabin for 3, enough space, clean, and jsut a throw stone of the beach!!The beach is really nice you can't see any hotels from there just palm trees and teh see, and so quiet.You can watch the sunset and enjoy your drink from the restaurant where the food is really good.

This place was great. The cabins were very nice and well kept,the beach is maybe 30 meters from the cabins, and they have a restaurant/bar on location. The food at the bar is great and they make everything from scratch. The owners, Rick and Lori, are awesome. They were extremely helpful in telling us how to get to and from Zancudo. I would absolutely recommend this place.

We were told about this place from a passer-byer and went we arrived we couldn't believe how nice everything was! We just stopped in, not planning to stay, but noticed how friendly the staff was just decided last minute to stay the night. It was so inexpensive for the two of us - and our cabina was so cozy and comfortable! We ate there and were completely impressed with the food (how good it was AND the selection!) - it was fantastic all the way around! We are recommending it to everyone! Thank you Sol y Mar for such an amazing experience!

Room Tip: We were in the last cabina - and it had a private porch and hot water and was so quiet!

We stayed at Sol y Mar for two nights. Our cabina was really nice. Steps from the beach. Quiet, clean and comfortable. The food was delicious and the bar a lot of fun. Get there by water taxi from Golfito. Looking forward to going back.

The low season rates for the cabins was a pleasant surprise, and we actually didn't find better deals in the rest of our trip along to southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica.

Rick, Lori and the rest of the staff were friendly and very helpful at all times, and even though we only stayed two nights, we were sad to go.

Zancudo is an awesome beach, even though the beach is several kilometers long, we only saw one person all the way to the horizon. I you are looking for a place to relax, in opposition with the crowded, noisy and dirty beaches closer to the Central Valley of CR, Zancudo is the place for you.

This was the last place i stayed in on my 4 day solo mountain bike expedition. i was recommended by a friend of theirs. I really think they have something good going on here. the staff is all tico and they have worked there for a long time and seemed very knowledgeable when i asked about activities and the condition of the roads and how to go to other places. i biked from Golfito that same day so i was extremely tired! i loved their big bed in the simple room. its a simple room but it has a warm shower that's always good after a long day of biking. Loved the refrigerator in the room definitely an extra. good price also.

my third time at sol y mar and it keeps getting better! the owners, rick and lori, do an excellent job running this place. it is unfair to call them the hosts, because all the staff at sol y mar are your hosts even the walter the groundskeeper, not just rick and lori. i was lucky enough to be there for rick and lori's 15th anniversary in zancudo, a much anticipated event in zancudo where they throw a party for everyone in zancudo with free food buffet style, it's their way of giving back to the community that has welcomed them. what a great example for other expats to follow! we stayed nearly a month and worked our way through nearly the whole menu and it was all good, i highly recommend the teriyaki kebabs on barbecue night and yoko's steak and eggs for breakfast.
stay at sol y mar and you will make friends! your hosts at sol y mar -
rick, lori, willy, karla, nuria, rosy, yoko, bal and walter run the best hotel in zancudo.
