Our Opinion
Please note that hotel standards in Cuba tend to be lower than in other Sun Destinations. Unless travelers are familiar with the resort or Cuban hotels, we typically recommend that travelers book a minimum 4 star resort when traveling to Cuba. 

Overview
Relax on beautiful Las Coloradas Beach, one of the finest on the island, and enjoy the unique view of the Great Reef from this fun-filled hotel. Active families on a budget will enjoy the good value and excellent children's club at Sol Club Cayo Coco. By day, stroll along the white-sand beach, bordered by swaying palm trees or play a round of mini-golf. When the sun sets, sip your favourite beverage in the 24 hr lobby bar, or dance the night away in the resort's disco.

Location: On the beach, 1 hr to the town of Moron, 15 min from Cayo Coco airport.

Melia Cayo Coco,To all those seeking a hotel by the coastLook no further as Melia Cayo Coco is better than mostIf a holiday in the Caribbean is your dream stayThen this hotel will not fail to impress day by dayThe staff are so friendly, everyone has a smileNothing is ever too much they go the extra mileIn no time at all a place in you heart they will findSo when accidents happen they won't mind'Mi Casa Su Casa' is what they will offer youSo bring your friends and family so they can experienced this tooAt the resort waiting for you is an extensive beach with lovely white sandCabanas, umbrellas even a guy to brush your sun longer is on handThe Animacion team lead the fun and games, on both the beach or the pool,No one cares if you act the foolEveryone is invited to partake in the funPut your worries behind you and enjoy a rum in the sunI guess by now you can tell I am a fanIf you want to know more drop me a line - I will get back to you when I canSo to all those at the Melia I would call my friends,Hoping to return soon, our best wishes we send.For currency exchange the local market is a good choice.Take a small hand brush for the beach to brush off sand before laying down on the sun lounger.Take a thermal mug, go for hot drinks at breakfast, cups are two sips only, then use the cup for cold drinks at the beach or around the pool.If you want something ask the customer service team, they are outstanding.Paying for upgrades at the hotel direct rather than through your travel agent will save you lots of money.Plan ahead for transfers, the buses are great but you wait ages for everyone to clear baggage, get a taxi, by the time everyone else arrives you will already be by the pool sipping a cool drink.Most of chill out and enjoy your stay.

Fabulous holiday

Visited Sol Cayo Coco towards the end of July going into August for 2 weeks. Travelled with my husband, 13 year old son and friends who we met on a previous holiday. Our first time in Cuba so obviously the first time at the Sol and it certainly will not be our last. I can honestly say that it's the best holiday we have ever had and we cannot wait to return. Everything about the hotel was perfect. Our room was spotless, hotel and all its surroundings are spotless with some truly stunning views. Staff work tirelessly to ensure that everything is perfect and that your having a great time. My son made so many friends whilst there and we didn't see him as they were off playing volleyball on the beach, golf and playing other ball games on the beach. We enjoyed a few trips out whilst there, speed boat, snorkelling etc... At weekends it does get quite busy with people coming to stay for the weekend. This never bothered us but we were made aware from other English holiday makers that they had shared some complaints to the management, example towels going missing around the pool, not being served at the bar...management were out immediately and those who had, had to make those complaints were satisfied. Like I say the best holiday we have ever had and we will definitely be returning. I got quite tearful when leaving especially when the children's entertainers came to wave goodbye to the younger children, all of whom were sad to go home. A truly fantastic place.

Great Cuban resort

Stayed at the Sol the 1st 10 days of April, 2017, and it was wonderfully! We had 10 days of pure sunshine and warm weather. This resort is on the smaller side, with two great beaches. The main beach has all new wooden structures made for shade, and we never had a problem getting chairs. The beach does get a bit breezy some days. The quiet beach around the point is incredible. It has a small bar for cocktails as well. The water here is simply wonderful for floating around in later in the day. It was always crystal clear. Food was probably the best we have had in Cuba. Buffet was very good with a nice selection, with even fresh lettuce and salad stuff which you won't find at most Cuban resorts. They have a couple of grilling stations. We usually sat in the same area and got to know the staff that way. They always had a smile when we arrived. The a la cart at the beach was just "ok". I think the loud music coming from the theater while they were practicing for the night show kind of ruined the atmosphere. The Don Diego a la carte was very nice. Food was good but service was a tad slow.Entertainment was good in the theater every night starting at 9:30pm. Prior to this there is music in the lobby area. The front desk staff (all staff!) are very friendly and always could make change for tipping. Try the Spanish Coffee in the Lobby bar in the evening. Awesome. Most times when we were in line for a drink the staff would say go sit and we will bring your order. Nice.Pool is laid out nicely. If it got too busy, or no chairs available, we just went down below the kids pool and always got chairs and shade if needed. They had replaced all of the towels for the pool/beach with bright orange and they were always available when they opened for all 10 days. The snack bar at the pool is open morning till late night and food was very good!!Room was a basic Cuban room. We were celebrating our anniversary so I e mailed in advance and we were put in an ocean front room which had an amazing view. Thanks!!There is a small market about a 15 minute walk to your right when you leave the front of the resort. A lot of the same stuff at each stall, but gives you something to do. This resort is only about a 15 min ride from the airport which was also nice. Would we go back? YES!! Can hardly wait!

A No Frills Holiday

Hi we returned yesterday from a week at the Sol yesterday...Kids 10 & 8 so 4 of us. Check in was great the reception is outstanding at this hotel the best we have ever been too😀. The room very basic one good bed the other sagging and very hard no extra blankets and terrible terrible pillows bring your own like suggested I did and was happy since they aren't real pillows. Lots of ants in the rooms and the odd cockroach as well. We were on the first floor.They honour your room request which was greatly appreciated if you email hotel ahead of time.Kids Activities were lacking, maybe an hour per day and Only by the pool so if you are at the beach there is nothing there for the kids except the beautiful ocean. There is no kids club where they entertain your children....a mini disco every night for 20 minutes as well.There is a video game room with PS3 kids loved it ! Food: the main buffet was very repetitive with not so great options the pasta guy was great (tall man) and the cook to order stations hit or mis some of the foods were raw inside we showed waiters nothing was done hamburgers were not cooked or the fish, my son was ill for two days and my husband the day we left. The staff in the restaurant were great if you tip they treat u really well. My daughter who is 8 was served rum in 2 drinks and we had to keep saying no rum we figured the lobby bar wouldn't serve rum to a child but we were wrong.The hotel is very quiet not a lot of activity at all so if you don't meet people you will be bored if you want some fun.We had a nice time staff were great but the food really was a disappointment that I ate pasta sometimes for lunch and dinner I have been to Cuba over 12 times however if they learned how to cook great food would be better.
