Cabinas Sol y Mar
Reviewed 27 February 2013

We arrived by water taxi from Golfito. The owners gave us great information on how to get to Sol Y Mar. We spent three nights here in a Non Duplex Cabina. We had a great time relaxing and enjoying the beach which is right at your front door! The beach is 7 miles long and we rarely saw a sole on it when we were walking or playing in the water. The cabina was modest, yet clean and a great value. The staff were all friendly and we had a great time. We ate almost all meals at the attached restaurant/bar and were never disappointed. We rented bikes one day, but the other days we just relaxed and enjoyed the scenery. We really enjoyed getting to know the regulars and the locals!

Room Tip: We had the non duplex cabina on the far end. I would recommend it so that you can't hear the ba...

This was our 6th year going to Sol Y Mar and every year it gets better. Modest but clean and comfortable cabinas right on the water. Beautiful breezes and sunsets you will never forget. Food is dynamite and so is the bar. Sunday Horseshoe tournaments, volleyball,bar-b-que, Live music and beach bonfires. Owners are super friendly and extremely helpful. Employees do a terrific job. As with most great spots its the people that make it great. Don't miss this if your in South West C.R.

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.
