My family and I had a ball.
I will surely recommend this place to anyone.
Before even going on my vacation I recommended it to a friend but the timing her family wanted was already book.
But from the pictures she said that place is a must visit it looks real nice.
People the pictures don’t lie what you see is what you get.
OMG that kitchen was so roomy my sister plan to copy it. Let's not forget about the views of the nylon pool,the sunset even the night view of the veranda, all breath taking.
Ms. Stacey was so warm and welcoming. Thank you for making our stay enjoyable.
On our last day Ms. Stacey was so pleasantly shock how clean we were and said we didn't have too. We said that is due to our parents teaching quote “How you meet a place leave it the same way”.
We will be back next year by God’s grace so see you again.

We have to agree with the other reviews that this Tobago trip topped most others for us - thanks to the Sol Y Mar experience! The 5 bedrooms provided ample space which made it comfortable for our entire family - parents, siblings and children. I love the open feel where you could be in the kitchen yet still feel connected to those in other rooms or on the outdoors, and yet still find a private solitary space when needed. The house has everything you can think of (and more!) including 2 ovens and a host of appliances and they thought of everything including labeling all electrical outlets etc! A couple of things weren't in top order e.g. ice maker but the key ones were and that made up. There was something for every generation to enjoy - from diving/swimming for the younger ones to hanging by the bar to ultra relaxation in the hot tub (enjoyed by all!) to enjoying a cup of tea in the gazebo with the spectacular view. The beautifully landscaped grounds which envelop the property, with views of mountains to the bucco reef, the sweet sounds of the birds and the gorgeous sunset are just some other yummy features. The housekeeper, Stacy, was warm and welcoming and her local dishes of pelau, stew chicken and callaloo had us going for seconds! There were so many central meeting points like the porch or long dining table making it perfect for a large gathering. My top picks and why I find Sol Y Mar hard to top are 1)Hot tub 2)Pool (perfect in length and varying depths) 3)View and Gazebo 4)Master bedroom with its huge space, walk in closet and separate tub. The construction and layout were obviously well planned and executed.
Service was outstanding from booking to departure!
Everything a la Sol Y Mar was FAN-TAS-TIC! Thank you!

I wanted to take a moment to tell you how wonderful Sol Y Mar Villa was. My family and I had the best Tobago experience ever, the view, the villa the flora and fauna and Marilyn (House Manager/Excellent Cook) and Seon (Landscaper)were amazing. Food was excellent, service was impeccable. Sol Y Mar views were breath taking, Golf couse/montain and amazing ocean views. The villa is beautiful spacious and has every thing you could need, plus a homely field, perfect for relaxation, the art piece were one of a kind. The villa is upkept so well and the pool and hot tub is beautiful and has devine views. I hope to make this an annual trip for the perfect destination.

Well what can I say It has been months and I am about to plan our annual trip and I am having trouble selecting a place in Tobago after staying at SOL Y MAR. It was the best Tobago trip ever and well I can really explain what it feels like at SOL y MAR but I can tell you it is definitely worth it.
I must also mention the most warm service and assistance by both caretakers. You guys really do a great job.
I really hope we stay there next year sometime.

My family and I spent our Christmas holidays at Villa Sol y Mar and had a truly wonderful time. From the moment we arrived our expectations were exceeded as the house was nicely decorated and we were warmly greeted by the villa's house and groundskeepers, Marlyn and Ceon, who helped to make our stay relaxed and enjoyable. The Villa was spacious and comfortable which allowed us (8 adults) to enjoy both quiet time and family time together. We enjoyed waking up to the birds, sipping coffee in the gazebo while gazing out over the horizon toward the warm Caribbean sea and watching the sun set in the evenings. We delighted in looking at the lush hillside and abundant fruit trees. The Villa became our home away from home and we enjoyed the use of its very large kitchen to prepare evening meals and especially loved hanging out in the pool/jacuzzi or playing board games. The location was convenient to many places of interest for example Buccoo Bay & the Nylon pool, Pigeon Point, Sunday school at Buccoo, Mt. Irvine golf course, Kimme museum, just to name a few. All in all, it was a wonderful family vacation --one that we'll remember for a very long time to come.
