“paradisiac!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2013

Villa Sol y Mar is a fantastic home built in a lovely location, owned and operated by two fantastic human beings (Wayne and Marcy), plus a great doggie (Ace). My wife and I were lucky enough to enjoy all of the above, alas, only for a short time. During our stay we got to talk with both Wayne and Marcy, and our lives were enriched by the experience. If you are looking for a quiet retreat with a breath-taking ocean-view and good vibes, look no further than Villa Sol y Mar.

Our stay at Villa Sol Y Mar was suddenly interrupted when my wife suffered a life threatening stroke. Wayne stayed by my side for the ensuing 21 hours. We were taken to the local clinic which was primitive at best. Thankfully, I am retired MD and was able to aid her and arrange air ambulance to Houston. Wayne even loaned me money that was needed to pay for her transportation. She is now in rehab and slowly recovering. Before this happened we felt Villa Sol Y Mar was the best place we had ever stayed and we still feel that way. I cannot thank Wayne and Marcy enough. We would return there in a minute if we are able.

We had tried for 2 years to find "our" place in Huatulco, and last December we found it at Villa Sol y Mar. We rented the whole Villa for the last week of the year and we really enjoyed ourselves. Wayne and Marcy were fabulous hosts. The villa is really comfortable, with a great view. We really enjoyed our stay there. Breakfast was a nice treat, by the way....we surely recommend it and look forward to coming back next year

We agree with all the wonderful reviews of Sol y Mar. Wayne and Marcy are gracious hosts. Quiet, beautiful, easy access to town. Huatulco is a wonderful place for those who want to experience Mexico in a safe, comfortable, crowdless beach environment. We would return in a heartbeat.

At the risk of sounding repetitive I just wanted to add my glowing praise of Villa Sol y Mar. Thank you Wayne and Marcy for being such wonderful, caring hosts. We felt at home the moment we arrived.
Set in a gated residential area a short taxi ride from everywhere but far enough from the crowded all inclusive resorts we realize we chose well. The view is awesome, the pool so inviting, room immaculate, breakfast just perfect.
If you want to do nothing you are in the right place. However Wayne and Marcy are a feast of knowledge and will happily assist you in any plans you may have whether it be fishing, golfing, visiting coffee plantations or just finding the best beach!
We heartily recommend Villa Sol y Mar and look forward to our return.

Room Tip: We had room 1. Largest room and in my opinion best.

Wayne, Marcy and Ace were gracious hosts and very knowledgeable regarding Huatulco and the surrounding area. They were intune to all guests' personalities, variety of interests and made helpful suggestions for dining out.

During previous Mexico vacations my husband and I would typically seek out a location to watch the sunset and enjoy a cocktail, here we had the best view right from Villa Sol y Mar every evening. Marcy, Wayne and other guests made us feel like were among friends. Several mornings I accompanied Wayne, Ace and other guests to Bucana Beach to walk the beach as Ace got in his run and also witness the breathtaking sunrise.

I would definitely recommend this location for travelers 55+, you can do as much or as little as you wish.

This is our fourth trip to Huatulco and our second stay at Villa Sol y Mar. Going back to the Villa was like coming home... to family you really like!

We had a very unique experience, as we were the only guests at the Villa until the end of our trip, due to a cancellation.

The Overbys’ let us choose to be involved in as much or little of their daily lives as we liked. We joined Wayne and Ace every morning to walk the beach watch the breathtaking sun rise over the ocean. We loved the breakfast beverages fresh squeezed juice and coffee (grown locally on the mountain at Pluma Hildago).

We were invited to join them and their friends on a drive up the mountain to purchase coffee, had an opportunity to join a group for a delicious breakfast. They toured us around the area and were taken on an informal tour of a local garden that grows the most amazing orchids.

Hubby and I spent our days in each other’s company enjoying the beaches peppered with a few days lazing poolside.

There were also some unexpected adventures when we were invited to Join Wayne on trips to Zipolite. A great place to paint, sketch, meet new people and explore your inner mermaid.

Another unexpected bonus day was a trip to Puerto Escondido. We all piled into Wayne’s Jeep and had a fun and scenic drive, ate the most delicious meal, saw amazing surf and enjoyed their company so much.

Again, we would not have experienced this had there been a full house at the Villa. We realize how extremely fortunate we were that everything aligned perfectly for them to give so freely of their time.

The same spirit of generosity was also extended by their personal friends who went out of their way to include us in everything from Super Bowl festivities to looking for accommodations’ to rent long term.

The things at the Villa that have not changed, is wonderful breakfasts, the sound of the ocean outside your door, plenty of space, comfortable and clean rooms, amazing views, a pool that I cannot drag myself out of and comfortable outdoor living.

Our host and hostess were exceptional; they effortlessly maintain a “Vacation Oasis.” All glitches are handled quickly and efficiently. They genuinely care about each guest’s personal experience and go above and beyond anything I have ever experienced.

Would I go back? In a heartbeat!

Would I recommend it? Absolutely!

Can Wayne jump more than a half inch? Yes, he can, I have seen it with my own eyes!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The peaceful ambiance of the Villa Sol y Mar is the ultimate in a relaxing vacation. Every room is designed to capture the tropical breezes and beautiful ocean views. With only five suites, there are no crowds or fighting for space at the private 40'infinity pool. Each of the 5 spacious suites features queen size beds, private bath, mini-fridge, air conditioner, ceiling fan and large private veranda overlooking the ocean. The poolside gathering area is a great spot to visit with other guests while watching the setting sun. You receive a complimentary breakfast and have the opportunity to share the use of the kitchen. The beach access is a block away from the villa and well worth the adventure climb up and down the hill. Like a lot of secluded beaches in Huatulco you'll find these gems formed between the mountainsides of the Oaxacan coast. Your hosts, Wayne and Marcy, are available on site November through April, and our administrator Pauline from May through October, to make sure your holiday is one of the best ever! ... more   less
