My husband and I recentaly stayed at Sol y Mar with 4 other couples. The accommodations are extremely comfortable for 5 couples with amazing views. We all preferred having dinners at the villa instead of going out. We also enjoyed birdwatching from the front porch and pool area in the morning and afternoons. There is excellent maid service as well with a spacious kitchen and large dining table. There is a lovely beach just down the hill if you do decide to venture out. Will definitely return.

While the villa views overlooking Buccoo Reef is amazing, the villa employees were extremely nice and polite and helpful, Sol Y Mar villa definitely needs a little upgrading. I love the fact that each room has its own private bathroom, but the outside is not representative of the inside. The bathrooms need serious upgrading. There is only one (1) television which is located in the main bedroom, so if you are a family with kids, it does make sense to stay there as the entertainment is limited. There is a tiny television in the loft which is small. Please note that all the bedrooms are on one floor and bedroom 5 is separate from the main house. The boys (3) teenagers could not unpack as there was no place for them to put their clothing. The kitchen is very nice and large and is a great meeting place, Sol Y Mar has everything you need to cook with. The BBQ pit needs to be replaced as it is a little dated. With regards to the WIFI, it is only available in the main area and does not reach throughout the villa, so you are not able to go to your room and be on the internet which was not the best situation. The backup generator did not work when we stayed there (10 of us for 12 days) and hopefully that issue has been resolved. My only other issue was that the staff came very early in the morning (7:00 am is too early for vacationers) and the grounds keeper came at 5am, a little uncomfortable, and even earlier on the weekend. So while I liked the villa, upgrades are definitely required in order for the inside to match the beauty of the outside and for Sol Y Mar to become a 4-5 stars villa!

Sarah Marconi from U.S.A. visited in June 2017 and awarded  Five out of Five

My husband and I, along with 2 other couples, vacationed at Sol Y Mar Villa last week and had an absolutely wonderful experience. The villa is very well appointed and the views are even more picturesque than we anticipated. The villa is quite spacious and the veranda/pool area were the perfect place to relax and enjoy the birds and other wildlife. The owners were incredibly helpful and responsive with island recommendations and the housekeeper, Stacey, was a lovely person and excellent resource. I would also highly recommend our driver, Mr. Tito, as he went above and beyond to make us comfortable and set up many tours for us. If we are lucky enough to return the hidden paradise of Tobago, we would absolutely stay at Sol Y Mar again!

Sarah Mcintosh from Trinidad visited in April 2017 and awarded  Five out of Five

We were a group of family and friends, from TT and England, who had a fantastic stay at Sol y Mar. Outstanding villa, beautiful views, great pool and jacuzzi, everything you need for cooking. It feels like being in an exceptional home, much better than most villas where you get the bare minimum of plates, glasses etc. Also, extremely comfortable without being ostentatious. Great service from friendly housekeepers Stacey and June, and Keshorn who took care of the pool and garden. We all loved it and vowed to come back.
