“loved it--will go back”
Reviewed 3 January 2008

For a price of $60 /night this was a true bargain. Usually we stay in hotels 2-3 times the price, or more, and this one was as good. The room was fair size, the mattress excellent, the decoration in excellent mexican traditional style, the staff very friendly and helpful.

We will go again. And if you want to book boat trips to the island Espiritu Santo, the office is there. This is an experience in life like few others!

This adorable and small hotel is more like a guesthouse, with a shared kitchen if you want it and a rooftop terrace complete with hammock and sun deck. It is peaceful, well-decorated with extensive tilework, and friendly. The front desk people speak English and can help arrange kayak tours through their own company. They have a parking lot and plenty of hot water.
The only downside is that it is a bit of a walk to get into town, and walking home in the dark is tricky as the sidewalk is difficult. The upside is that you are surrounded by local restaurants and local people!

  • Liked — The many places to relax in the building.
  • Disliked — The location.

We spent one night at the Mar Y Sol at the completion of a seven day sea kayaking trip from Loreto to LaPaz. It is located very close to the marina and the malechon.
The rooms were very clean, large, and the shower was hot. We didn't need much more to make us happy. There is a terrific roof top patio overlooking the marina and LaPaz.
The staff was excellent and very helpful.
Side note: Sea Kayaking with the Mar Y Sol crew was the coolest thing my wife and I have ever done together.

Found this gem on the Internet and it is more than any reviews can describe. Authentic Mexican building style and wonderful Mexican staff 24/7. We were in the top floor one-bedroom suite--great experience, view, AC, balcony, and space. We left for the airport right as the airport closed down for a hurricane (we did this two days in a row, as did the airport), and Lucero, the manager, welcomed us back in like family. Other outstanding staff are Hugo, a 20ish year old boy who does the early evening shift and Sr. Perfecto who does the graveyard shift. Maribel and Teresa, two cleaning staff, have heart and soul. In our hurricane hideout, all staff provided everything we could possibly need--clearly we bonded with staff. The hotel is a a wonderful experience: quiet, clean, safe, in town (but away from the fray), and an authentic slice of Mexican life. The private kitchen in the suite was a wonderfhul bonus but the shared kithcen on floor 2 was also immaculate. BTW, Lucero and Hugo speak great English. PS: We paid half down here via Visa and the rest in cash in La Paz--worked fine.

  • Liked — Authentic Mexican architecture and design features
  • Disliked — A few blocks from the Malecon--but this saved us on noise big time

We were staying at another hotel and came here to rent a kayak (these guys are also mar y aventuras, the kayak/camping guys). We took a look at a room and decided that this was the place for us. Almost 1/2 the price of Los Arcos and only 14 rooms. The owner Ricardo is local and was helpful in places to eat and also arranging for a one day kayak/snorkelling trip.

It was also great to talk to the people returning from 2,4,5,8,10 day camping trips.

i will go back to this place.

Stayed at Posada Luna Sol in La Paz in June '06 & it was a very pleasant experience. Clean & fairly new. Good AC & ceiling fan that work. If you need english language TV this is not your place. Only Mexican channels. Great rooftop deck. Would stay again.

My family & I just returned from a trip to La Paz Mexico. After ton's of searching on line for accomidations, we reserved a room at Posada Luna Sol. This hotel is absolutley beautiful and our room was very roomy as well as clean. There is a roof top area that we relaxed on every evening to watch the stars & listen to the ocean. The staff was friendly & so willing to help & accomidate. I will definately stay there again.
