“A Little Piece of Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2011

Our recent two week stay at Villa Sol y Mar could not have been more perfect. We lacked for nothing. Wayne and Marcy went out of their way to make sure we had the most wonderful vacation. They immediately made us feel welcome, at home, comfortable and as valued guests. They were most accommodating and hospitable in every way.
The beautiful grounds, pool, spacious rooms and entire villa were immaculately kept by the tireless and meticulous efforts of Socorro and Quirino.
We indulged in excellent service, much peace and relaxation, great conversation with our hosts and other guests and a breathtaking view, all which beckons us to return as soon as possible. An amazing experience we can't wait to repeat!

Lee and Shelley Winnipeg, Mb

We stayed at Villa Sol Y Mar for a week, after spending a week at Dreams Resort in Huatulco. It was relaxing and peaceful after the loud music and activities of an all-inclusive resort. Wayne and Marci were great hosts and Wayne took us on a tour around Huatulco and this gave us a good idea of the restaurants, beaches, shopping etc. Everything is easily accessible by cab for not more than 50 pecos, and a number of times we were able to share the cab with other guests at the villa. Tangalunda Beach is an easy half hour walk on paved sidewalks. The villa is beautiful with its infinity pool, outdoor dining and spotless rooms with their own private baths and balcony. Marci was kind enough to drive us to Crusecita so that we could take the passenger van to the city of Oaxaca, where we spent 10 days. Thanks to Wayne, Marci and Ace for a fabulous holiday at Villa Sol Y Mar.

Wayne and Marcy were the most gracious and accommodating hosts a traveller could hope for; their knowledge of local facilites and attractions was invaluable. Expert advice on restaurants and recreational facilities was right on the mark. We were there for a break and relaxation and that is exactly what we found; a great facility with excellent service, simple, but excellent, daily breakfasts with the best local produce and coffee at the ready throughout the breakfast hours. Sharing of the facility with our hosts and other guests was one of the highlights of our stay. We are in the process of finalizing our stay for next year, that should say all there is to know!!

We loved spending three days at Villa Sol y Mar this past week. Wayne and Marcy are very hospitable. The Villa room was lovely, with a balcony overlooking a magnificent bay with the sound of waves crashing on the rocks below. If you like a quiet environment, with a fabulous view, this is the place. It's certainly a far cry from the mega-hotels with their all inclusive packages. We have spent two months traveling in Mexico, and our stay at Villa Sol y Mar was one of the highlights of our trip.

Villa sol y mar. From the minute we stepped out of our cab upon arriving at the villa our hosts made us feel like family. Wayne and Marcy included us in their personal daily activities which gave us a true flavor of the local culture, geography and people that we would have not experienced without their generous invitations. The villa is clean and well maintained. Seccora and Trevino do a great job taking care of the beautiful pool and the rooms. An exciting yet very relaxing laid back place, the views and sunsets across the bay are unforgettable. Too many to mention but many fond memories of our stay at sol y mar. Looking forward to a return visit..

Marcy and Wayne are the best hosts possible—kind, attentive, informed, helpful and fun to talk to. These qualities contribute to frequent gatherings with guests around a large, beautifully-tiled, outdoor dining table where breakfasts are taken, cold beer is drunk at various times throughout the day, sunsets are watched, information is exchanged about attractions, beaches, restaurants visited, and plans are made for the days to follow.

Villa Sol y Mar is beautifully situated—on a hill overlooking Tangolunda Bay, with a view of the rising moon and setting sun, a tranquil oasis removed from town and beach, but only a $4 taxi ride to almost any beach, bank or restaurant in the area. Taxis come quickly when called and are, I think, a better option than a rental car for most people, although there’s a Hertz outlet in nearby Tangolunda if needed. It's easy to find a taxi anywhere for the return trip.

The rooms are airy and cool, private and spacious, impeccably clean—very comfortable Queen beds. It feels more like a small hotel than a typical bed and breakfast. The water is safe to drink, treated with an ultra-violet system. There’s reliable free wireless available and a convenient phone for free local calls. The upscale, residential neighborhood is gated and feels safe and secure. Light meals can be prepared by guests in the large kitchen. There’s a large fridge for guest use, as well as mini-fridges in the rooms. The beautifully-designed, lighted infinity pool is cool and deep and large enough to actually swim in. There's plenty of sun and shade, and a light, refreshing breeze always seems to be in the air.

When we first arrived, Wayne took us on a helpful orientation tour of the vicinity. During the week, our hosts arranged a visit to Pluma Hidalgo, a small town in the mountains famous for its coffee, and a day-long boat tour of the Bays of Huatulco with Hurricane Divers, run by friends. These were priceless experiences.

Dollar for dollar and pleasure for pleasure, Villa Sol y Mar may be the best accommodation we’ve had in nearly fifty years of frequent travel.

I found this incredible Villa online and from the moment I booked it I had outstanding service from Wayne and Marcy. Wayne called me direct to offers his help with any details while staying at the Villa. He found a cook to prepare a New Year's eve meal and wow what a meal it was! Thanks for that Wayne.
While staying at the Villa the views take your breath away from any room in the house.
The pool was perfect for our teenage kids and the small pool perfect for the little ones.

The staff was most helpful and breakfast made by Secorro was enjoyed every morning.
The Villa was spotless and the rooms were spacious and comfortable.

We are looking forward to going back next year!

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
