I really wanted to like Sol Y Luna and was excited to stay here, but can't say it lived up to my expectations. I can see why some people would really enjoy it here though because it is very calm and restful in a beautiful forest location. I can see this hotel really turning into something great, it is just missing a few touches. The price is incredible though, so I suppose you can't be terribly picky.
It just seemed like the hotel wasn't ready to be opened yet, it felt deserted and I was scared to walk around by myself at night. There are no lights around the walkways or pool area. There is a light in the pool but not on the deck so it was dark and a bit scary (I am a bit of a chicken though)...and the road was almost impassable due to a very bad rain. Alex had it fixed immediatley, but since the last rain was October I wondered why he hadn't fixed it before our arrival. The property is beautiful, with howler monkeys on the grounds, and the cabinas are great and private. Ours was not clean though, and the sheets seemed as though they had been washed awhile ago then left on the beds. I found dead bugs and dirt in the beds and in the bathroom.
We went to breakfast in the morning and when we returned the room was being cleaned, so I am thinking it was perhaps a fluke that things weren't up to par...we didn't stick around to find out though.
We were there in the low season so I think that perhaps Alex just hadn't gotten into the swing of things yet. There is a wet bar at the end of the pool (and the pool area and jacuzzi are beautiful by the way) but it is not open (it would not have made sense for it to be open as there were no guests.) One negative is that the path to the beach has been closed. We did not like driving to the beach and did not stay a second night here.
