Reviewed 17 April 2015

We went there for dinner after reading some nice, older reviews of the place. It seems that it changed quite a bit in the meantime! The atmosphere was not good and it did not feel even like a restaurant. There was no menu, no choice of food. A tiny mango smoothie (about 5 times smaller than in all other restaurants we have been to) required 3 people and cost us 1500 colones. The cook seemed like it was her first day at work. In the end we paid 20000 for 2 very average and rather small dishes, 2 beers (we were not offered a glass) and the tiny smoothie, which felt like a total rip off compared to what we had in other restaurants. Also the dinner was uncomfortable. The table was too wobbly to put down the beer bottle and a very hungry-looking cat and dog were waiting under our table fighting over every rice corn that fell down...Not to mention the TV that was too noisy to hear the waves...We cannot recommend the restaurant, but haven't stayed in their cabinas.

There is plenty of great food in Manza, and this place is not to be missed. Very simple and low key you get great taste at a great value. I only had the pleasure of one meal but the red snapper was a delicious mix of Caribbean and Mediterranean flavors. The location is great but not so obvious as a restaurant. If you're in town you must try this place!

We didn't stay at the Mar Y Sol - we just stopped by to have a drink and use their wifi. But the atmosphere was so fabulous, we just hung out and soaked it all in. We had a couple of drinks and our fabulous host, Tessa, offered us a sample of his wonderful Rondown soup. Lots of folks who were staying here said it was a great place to stay.

During Feb 2013 a friend & I spent 3 weeks birding in the Manzanillo area. We did not stay at Mar y Sol but we ate there several times; the guests we encountered expressed satisfaction with their accommodations and were quite pleased by the value. It was at Mar y Sol that I had the best burger I've eaten in Costa Rica. Excellent breakfast.

The owners are from Indiana and were friendly and forthcoming during our interactions. Strong and reasonably reliable Wi-Fi signal.
