Our stay at the villa was everything we hoped for. The advertisement was in no way misleading.The accommodation was very comfortable and safe with everything we needed and breath-taking views made our stay very relaxing.The complimentry meal was a wonderful surprise.The caretaker, Stacy was also very warm and extremely helpful. I will therefore highly recommend the facilities to any group.
I guarantee you will have no regrets.

I would recommend Sol y Mar to anyone who is looking for a really beautiful place to relax and enjoy the sea and sun. Sol y Mar is close to the airport and popular beaches in Tobago. So access to these places is easy and there is ore than enough space for parking vehicles.
The villa itself is huge and despite that it makes you feel very much at home and it is cosy. It offers a lot of amenities. The kitchen is large enough to accommodate a big group. I stayed with my family, 9 adults and two children and we were all comfortable. The swimming pool is large enough for you to enjoy a swim or just soak and relax. It is very clean also. The villa is surrounded by a lot of vegetation and beautiful plants which makes the place cool. It is situated in a perfect spot where it is quiet and you have some degree of privacy. We felt safe and secure there. On mornings it is a pleasure to hear the birds and see them come to eat food which we put for them. There were different species of them all beautiful.
The scenery was breath taking. We had a perfect view of Buccoo Reef from the front porch and pool area.
The staff there, Stacey and Keshore, are very pleasant, polite and helpful. They ensure the place is maintained and kept clean.
Sol y Mar lived up to its expectation for my family. It is exactly what you see in the pictures on the web site and more. We had no regrets what so ever in choosing Sol y Mar. When we were looking for some where to stay in Tobago where our family would be easily accommodated Sol y Mar was our preference from the time we saw it.
A really beautiful place. After one visit you feel to go back again.

My wife and I held a mini family reunion with each of our extended families over 10 nights at Sol Y Mar. The positive reviews I read before making the booking were all well deserved.
The house was more than large enough to accommodate everyone comfortably and I thought it was very well designed with its open living area leading out to the large outdoor patio and beautiful pool. The design provided a large central area for the family to be together without feeling overcrowded.
The house itself was full of the Caribbean charm that one would expect from a Tobago vacation and felt truly authentic.
The unique layered pool also proved to be a hit. The shallow kid friendly section allowed the adults to stay close enough to their toddlers without having to stay in the shallow area also.
The picturesque landscape coupled with the position of the pool and gazebo (facing the sunset) is spectacular.
Finally I have to mention the house manager, Stacey. She was very professional, friendly and accommodating and did everything she could to make our stay perfect.
Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for the perfect Tobago vacation and hope to return myself someday.

If you are looking for an extremely comfortable villa for a large group, i would highly recommend Sol y May.
The physical location of the villa is absolutely superb, with an amazing view of bucco reef, nylon pool and pigeon point. Due to the altitude of the villa in the hills, there is always beautiful ocean breeze.
The villa itself is very wonderful, Very spacious and welcoming. However our group only slept for a few hours a night because we were all to busy lazing in the pool, having drinks on the deck and relaxing in the jacuzzi!
Miss Stacy the house keeper is such a darling woman, she instantly made us feel at home. Very polite and eager to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
The Care taker Keshawn (I am sure i spelt it wrong) went out of his way many times for us to procure fresh produce for our food. He also checked in with us frequently giving us a great feeling of security.
All in all we had a fantastic time and will definitely be returning to Sol y Mar again and again.
The owner of the villa is very responsive and goes out of their way to facilitate whatever requests you may have. Thanks again L.O.
When you are leaving Sol Y Mar make sure and sign the guestbook!

To say that Sol y Mar in Tobago is a great place to vacation is simply an understatement! Our time there, and there were 10 of us, was a vacation dream come true for everyone. This part of the world, and especially this piece of real estate, is by far the #1 destination that any of us have been (and we have all travelled extensively). Stacey the house manager certainly added to our fabulous experience, so if you have not been to this property or to Tobago, then you should consider it for your next holiday retreat! thank you Les and thank you Stacey, we will be back!
