Mar y Sol Beach Resort


    The details

    It has to be said that feeling footloose and fancy free is pretty easy when you're running around your own private beach in the Caribbean, sipping a freshly made Coco Loco and organising your day purely around sea frolics.

    Meanwhile your friends are shackled to their desks doing the 9 to 5 grind clutching a Nescafe.

    We know where we would rather be.

    That would be Mar y Sol Beach Resort. A show-stopping Southern American inspired house, complete with darling shutters and a wooden panelled veranda that drapes around the entire house with the elegance of an Hermes neck scarf.

    If you’re already feeling smug about holidaying on the best chunk of the Rosario Islands - on a private beach no less - then wait till you get inside this slick beach haven.

    The sweeping hallways, white-wash walls and dashes of mood-uplifting colours sprinkled around the house like angel dust throw off that Caribbean holiday flavour you’ve long been searching for.

    The bedrooms are your typical 5 * affair - with the added ‘private island bonus’ part of course. After one night’s sleep in any of the 5 bedrooms, you’ll soon find that a blissful bed and no white noise makes for the best night’s sleep of your life.

    There is something extra comforting about the homely touches, such as the wicker bedsteads, patchwork quilt hangings and handmade cushions that make you feel like you’re in a private residence, and not an hotel.

    And it gets better outside, with jazzy colour contrasts, seriously fashionable sun loungers and lots of social areas to make it even harder to leave the grounds. Especially when the generously sized pool is just as tempting as the crystalline sea on your doorstep.

    You’ll have to flip a peso to see which one you’ll dip into first, but either way make sure you have a dinner (or three!) on the marvellous swimming pool terrace to watch the last wink of sun.

    * How the cozy interiors contrast wonderfully with the va va voom outdoor furniture
    * Enjoying the jaw dropping views from anywhere in the house, thanks to the surround terrace
    * Having a private beach to call your own is definitely a bucket list box ticker

    * It’s a private island escape so don’t expect a lot of social action in the evening
    * Watersports and boat hire are not included in the price of the rental. Please contact us if you would like to arrange this separately
    * You can still stay here if your group is small. Agua Azul also functions as an hotel
