Our Opinion
Five star beaches at a moderate resort. 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.

Located on Cayo Guillermo, Hemingway's famous 'Island in the Stream', Sol Cayo Guillermo sits on a 4 km stretch of spectacularly powdery white beach. Situated in the middle of a nature reserve, it is joined to mainland Cuba by a 56 km causeway.

Location: On the beach, 90 minutes from Moron, 30 minutes from the airport.

Well the place was clean and the staff was nice but food was not very good it was cold most of the day and they keep reply the same thing ever day . Lots of the people we talk when we stay had a up set stomach .and lot of thing broken down so we only had one blender in the end to make cocktail .

A little tired and run down

We stayed here 13 years ago for our then 25th wedding anniversary and unfortunately the rose tinted glasses let me down. The entire hotel is in need of a refurb and I believe that is due to happen soon. The staff were typically Cuban i.e. very friendly and courteous. The food however was not the high standard it used to be. The Ala Carte restaurants were however good. The beach is the best in Cuba in our opinion. One thing that disappoints is that the Archipelago used to be primarily a nature reserve but is now being developed with many new hotels being built. The Sol thankfully is perfect for the area and doesn`t dominate the skyline in the way that the new ones will. In fact if you did not know where it was you would be hard pushed to find it through the treeline. Out of all the hotels we have stayed in in Cuba ( 5 so far ) this is still our favorite . Because it is run down at the moment I have had to grade it as a 3 star and not the 4 it is labeled as. Given the refurb then it should retain it`s 4 and possibly climb to a nearly 5 .

Sol cayo guillermo

Just returned from another incredible stay here for the 7th time....of all the hotels in cayo coco and cayo guillermo..this is obviously our favourite and is definitely the best location for the really get the feeling you are on a desert island in or outside your room unlike other hotels that could actually be anywhere...but at the same time you are only 2 or 3 minutes away from a vibrant and really fun main hotel area and restaurants......thanks Nelido Casay Díaz...for everything ,you did a fantastic job....thanks to all staff but especially Anita hector jonny and Rolando yamilla and our favourite dinner waitress are truly beautiful people inside and out...except rolando and jonny who are only beautiful inside!!!!....😂😂see you all in November we think...❤❤❤❤

Day out to Sol Cayo Guillermo

We didn't actually stay at the Sol Cayo Guillermo, we stayed at the Sol Cayo Coco. However due to them being Sister Companies, we were allowed to use the facilities that the Sol Cayo Guillermo had to offer. We took the open top bus down to the Sol Cayo Guillermo for 5cuc each and then spent the day there. We also had lunch at the Hotel which was really good! Every station available was good and even the buffet food was lovely. The chef even came out to rotate the food constantly so it would stay hot! If you do plan to do the same as us and visit a Sister Hotel to use their facilities, you must make sure you go to your Hotels Reception desk and let them know you're doing so. They will then provide you with a voucher which you hand in to the Reception desk at the Hotel you're visiting. The Hotel will then provide you with temporary wrist bands for access to your All Inc drinks and food. Even though we haven't stayed at this hotel, both times we have been to Cuba, we've always visited the Sol Cayo Guillermo for a day out and it has always been good. The hotel looks nice, entertainment and activities seem good too.We did get told though that the Sol Cayo Guillermo is shutting down on the 1st June for refurbishment and they aren't sure how long it'll be shut for. Wonderful hotel and lovely staff. Will definitely visit back in the future!
