  • So Great!

    "Just loved this place and Nicaragua as a whole. We're huge fans of C. Rica (and always will be) but this little piece of Nica paradise was perfect for us. Owner Mark and manager Buzz were the best - everything EXACTLY as promised. My teens' reaction upon seeing the beautiful condo, killer view, big screen TV and WiFi service better than our home? "Mom - you gotta find us more places like this for vacations!" It only got better with Pili's excellent food at the cafe and Esteban's killer pina coladas/smoothies. Ricki and Jarvin rounded out the excellent service at our small but oh so perfect cafe/bar/pool a stone's throw from the condo's back porch. Hubby couldn't decide whether to golf first and then surf or vice versa. Did plenty of both - the 9 hole course is beautifully maintained and you MUST tee off the blues on hole 7 - the view is the best of most golf courses short of the big famous ones. Didn't take advantage of so much that we could have - fishing, fresh seafood delivered to our door (well, who was I to compete with Pili's cooking?), pangas to other surf spots.... but we had to save something for next trip! Carolina cleaned the condo for 3 - 4 hours every other day and washed, dried and folded our clothes. Maxi Pali grocery store in Rivas has all supplies necessary for self-sufficiency. Road is paved almost to Playa Gigante turnoff - 1/4 mile of progress every week! Massage by Miriam - in the condo - heaven. Buzz will arrange. The breeze was consistent and wonderful - way fewer bugs than at our family farm in Kansas. Sadly, the ongoing drought in Nica made for great weather for our stay, but everything is still very, very lush compared to our home in SoCal. Loved the howler monkeys we heard every night and every morning in the hills to the south of the river - and one little guy who visited one day in the tree next to the condo. Incredibly brilliant blue and orange crabs in hundreds of holes under the trees. Bird sounds that we miss very much. And the beach - our very own. My teens spent hours body surfing, collecting shells, exploring tide pools at south end of the beach. Never, ever saw more than 5 people there at one time. Even in front of the break, a huge crowd was maybe 12 people on the beach. Based on our observations of the level of activity EVERYwhere in Nica, this kind of private paradise will fast disappear. We will be back soon!"

All worked perfectly in the kitchen, the AC was working very well. The pool is a plus!. Totally recommend you to stay there!!. Seth and Lindsey extremely kind!"

  • We had a great stay at Mar Y Sol!

    "PROS: -House was perfect for two couples. -Loved the kitchen and open living/dining room design. -On-site property managers were pleasant and attentive. -We regularly purchased cokes-in-bottles from Flor. -Very short walk to a nice beach that we enjoyed. -Beautiful sunsets from the bar/restaurants steps from the house. -Very short drive to SJDS and grocery store. -Fun day trip to Playa Coco (45 minute drive on very rough road) CONS: (Keep in mind that you are visiting Nicaragua, not Hawaii, so certain aspects (e.g. the smell of burning trash) are unavoidable.) -Air conditioning unit was in one bedroom, the other bedroom got pretty hot even though we turned the A/C unit on around 4PM and left both bedroom doors open. -Barbed-wire fence gate leading to property was a bit of hassle to open and close, and slightly dangerous. But you see this kind of gate/fence all over Nicaragua. -Also, the directions for getting to the house were a little unclear once we got to the driveway, since the "gate" just looks like a normal fence. -They're building a house next door so construction noise was very audible. -Two mice in the kitchen, one found in a cupboard (dead) and one seen running around (alive). All of these "CONS" didn't really detract from the wonderful time we had a Mar y Sol, but I thought they deserved mentioning. I will also say that I was a bit nervous about crime in the area after reading different reports online, however we didn't have a single problem during our week-long stay at Mar y Sol. Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!"
