We enjoyed our stay at Villa Sol. The staff were excellent; A couple of staff spoke English well, so that was very helpful to us. We were there just as the tourist season was opening, so it wasn't very busy yet, other than some bus tours (I think). . The beach pool on the ocean is awesome and the shuttle service to and from is great. You can get a shuttle normally within a few minutes That was our favourite place to be. The hotel is near several coffee shops, an easy walking distance. As well, it is not that far to walk into town; probably about l/2 hour walk to the Super Chez, a large grocery store, and Principal Beach. It is an easy taxi ride to several of the beaches, about $2.50C for the taxi. However, you could also just go to Principal Beach and walk along the beach to the rest of the beaches. It is a true Mexican fishing village, which we loved. Would definitely visit there again.

Most commendable about the hotel is its excellent restaurant. After heading out to the various beach palapa restaurants and being ripped-off with bad food and terrible service, we had dinner at the hotel restaurant once and never looked back! Food was well-priced, the menu varied – with an amazing vegetarian selection (unheard of in Mexico) – and every dish we sampled was absolutely delicious. The bungalows are not bungalows at all but rather a kind of house with 4 apartments. That said, each has a very private feel and has a pleasant terrace with table, chairs and hammock. There is a very nice pool in leafy surroundings with sun-loungers. The apartment itself is spacious with basic furnishings. There is a free purified water dispenser on each floor which is excellent. The TV has English channels. Within a few steps of a gorgeous white-sand beach with large waves. The hotel is within short walking distance of an ATM, shops, and a supermarket. The air-conditioning is efficient but oddly placed. The ceiling fans work well although they are rather noisy. On the down side, the wifi although free had a very weak signal. The service at the front desk was variable from somewhat hostile to passable. The apartments on the lower floor are not recommended because of foot traffic – try for one on the top floor. Although the terraces are sea-facing, you cannot see the sea because of the tall palm trees on the beach covering the view. Overall, highly recommended.
Arrived hours before check in time to be welcomed with the news our hosts had upgraded us to the bungalow. They threw in free breakfast that morning even though we were not yet due. An easy walk to the best swimming beach. Beautiful garden to hang out in. Only drawback a 25 peso taxi ride to most restaurants if you don't feel like the walk. We'll be sure to book the bungalow next time.
