9 Visits and Planning the Next...

We were at Sol Cayo Largo from April 1 to 15 so I'll just sort of piggy-back on CubaJunkie0913's thorough review. It was our 9th time Sol Cayo Largo and 12th to the island and definitely one of the best visits we've had.Flop #1I agree...we grabbed a cab to get to the hotel before the crowd, got the return visitor's check in clerk quickly but...our file wasn't there. She headed off and found it quickly (thank goodness we were ahead of the bus or we might still be waiting). We had put room requests in 3 times, 3 different ways (through travel agent, email, and Facebook message) with no reply (hadn't had one the last few times either). The room we got missed all the criteria we asked for except to not be put in another habitación del infierno like we got last September. (You can find the review if you go back to 19 September 2016.) The room we got was great...location not what we asked for but not too far away...new functional air conditioner (temperature easily controlled with the remote...which also turned off a very bright LED showing the temperature).Flop #2No problems with the buffet...of course we were with Nestor who recognized us the day he showed up and have lots of good contacts with serving staff now assigned to other areas. Our coffee, water and wine were brought to a table as soon as we came in (often before we got to it) and were refilled frequently and usually without us having to ask. I guess we're among the chosen. We got excellent service in the Ranchon as lunch as well...drinks on the table almost before we got there and never empty glasses. Flop #3Again no problem...we both like fish and I got an extra helping of the Calamari because my better half doesn't like it. Previously we were served a lobster tail and a pork dish...get who got to trade pig for lobster. They really should make a choice available and noted on the invitation so it can be preordered when confirming the reservation. Service has improved a lot over the years and was the best so far.Flop #4Yep, the water was off a couple of times...twice during the lunch serving hours. We eat in the Ranchon early so we can hear the band play and got the really big plates and glassware, no styrofoam and plastic. One afternoon during the first week we had no water when we returned to our room...headed to the pool to rinse the sand from the beach off...by the time we got back water was on and shower etc. was working.And a new one...Flop #5Please get the guy at the carvery in Los Dunas a proper carving knife and lessons on how to break down chickens, turkeys, fish, etc. The huge commando type weapon he was waving around meant he could do little more than hack the poor dead animals into misshapen chunks. The food was well prepared and deserves a much better presentation. ObservationsThe food everywhere was generally well prepared but the choices were nowhere near what they have been in the past. Even so, I never went hungry.The beach was great, lots of chairs and palapas (there were always some available whenever I looked...even when somebody left T-shirts on two chairs near us and never showed up for the last 3 days we were there).We had the pleasure of hearing two different bands and enjoyed them both very much...I gift the guitarists with a set of strings each and think I've been adopted into a few families. We were instantly recognized by the second band (the leader plays guitar with a singer in the lobby but not in the band) as soon as they saw us.If you happen to be around when one of the pool maintenance guys decides to play by the pool in the evening stop and listen...he was excellent . We heard him on our way to our final dinner and I made sure he got strings as well.We're already planning trip 11!Nothing to do and all day to do it! Life is good.

When can I go back?!

We stayed at Sol Cayo Largo April 8th to the 15th.This was our second stay at the hotel, our 3rd visit to Cayo Largo and trip # 18 to Cuba overall.All in all, the hotel scored higher marks with us this time around. If possible, it was even more beautiful than last year. They do a great job at keeping the place looking inviting and clean and well cared for. We lucked out with a perfect weather week, not a drop of rain and barely a cloud in the sky .Overall, this vacation was a smashing success.But… ya know, it’s Cuba and it’s not without it’s issues. Although these are pretty minor (to us anyway) in the grand scheme of things, they’re worth mentioning.Flop #1On arrival, we were sent to the returning guest check in tables instead of the main counter (yay!) but.. they seemed to have lost our reservation. I emailed ahead of time requesting an upper floor room in block 22 or 23. I received the standard reply (subject to availability) but figured OK- request received. The lady that checked us in searched and searched her envelopes, but couldn’t find us. After about 10-15 minutes and 3 trips back and forth behind the desk, she presents us with… room 0724. They’d be challenged to find a room farther away from our requested location. It was right behind the snack bar. I know it was a honest issue, they really did lose us and gave us someone elses room. I know this cause her name was scratched off the envelope and the towel card (Sorry Danielle!). Anyway, off we went to 0724. We figured we’d check it out and ask to change rooms in the morning. They were pretty overwheled with check ins when we got there. The room, as it turned out, was great. New AC unit that worked so well (a bit too well)… King size bed, functional everything, hot water, decent pressure. We know a gem of a room when we get one- so although it was a much farther spot than we wanted to be, I wasn’t budging from there!Flop #2Ok, I’ve got to talk about the buffet, cause this is a special problem. It reminds me of a highschool cafeteria. You want to be in the “in crowd”, in part of a clique, or you are left out in the cold with a a dirty table, and no utensils and zero service. We had problems with the buffet last year too. From Sunday morning, untill Thursday- we received bad to NO service. Getting our own utensils, trying to wipe down the table.. you want a drink? Pffft.. good luck amiga. The wait staff picks their clients. Everyone sits in their waiter/waitresses section every meal. I was really starting to take this personally by the end of the week. Us, the buffet outcasts. It was pretty common to see 5-6 servers standing around chatting and flat out ignoring us. Finally, we were adopted! Nestor saved us. We made it into his group. Nestor, please never leave. I don’t want to have to court a new server next year. Seriously, seriously Management, do something about this. It’s ridiculous. Flop #3The returning guests dinner. Beautiful set up, amazing service… But, no menu. The main dish was seafood only. Calamari and Mahi Mahi. They never mentioned to anyone that the dinner was fish. Not everyone eats fish. What a waste. At least 4-5 tables got up and went to the buffet, leaving their main courses untouched on the table. We inquired with the waiter if there was another option (we were OK with the dish, but were curious). He said chicken was no problem but they’d need to know in advance. Great. So ask? You need to call and confirm your reservation at the dinner, so the simplest fix would be to mark on the invitation to let them know if you don’t eat seafood. Then, they could prepare chicken in advance. Everyones happy and they don’t throw out expensive meals.Flop #4 (the final one!)A full day (about 10am to 5pm) and a second afternoon (1pm-5pm), no water. Not just in the rooms. I was used to that from the last time. It was pretty common last year for the water to be off during daytime hours. But this was the entire hotel. So, no hand washing, no toilet flushing, no dishes, only plastic cups and styrofoam plates, no coffee (whhhhhat? That was the worst!). You get the idea. The bathrooms got gross fast. I’m not sure what the problem was, or if it was a planned outage, but it was pretty intense. We ended up renting a scooter and going out (when the bathrooms at the Marina or Sirena are better options, it’s bad news)Alright- now that I got all that off my chest, lets get to why I LOVE this hotel and will always be back..The beaches are other-worldly. (We did have a lot of red flag days- but it’s not like that’s the hotels fault). Even with huge waves, it’s beach heaven. The place is GORGEOUS. Did I say that already? Cause it really is. It’s the perfect size for us, and the layout is convenient. The bar service at the lobby and the “disco” bar are fantastic. Going out is easily done by taxi or by renting a quad or scooter. Paraiso, Sirena and the Marina are great places and all within 5-10 minutes of the hotel. The vibe is very laid back, everyone seems to be there for the same thing.. R&R, indulgence and a helluva suntan. We met so many nice people. Despite the issues (I’ve never found a hotel without a few..) this place draws people back over and over and we understand why. We talked to people that were there on their 10th or 15th trips. Give me a few years, I’ll have them beat! Till next time my tiny island paradise!

Comfortable but well worn resort on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Stayed April 1-8, 2017 and enjoyed a 2nd floor (top) room bldg 10) that just happened to have a view of the ocean between buildings 12 and 13 that are classified as ocean view. Oceanview is a little overrated as you are two rocky dunes and 500 feet from the ocean and none can view the beach.The resort has all the basics, decent pool and restaurant although only two al a cartes.The entertainment staff tried, but the shows were on the low end of the quality scale. Most of the staff were quite friendly if you made an effort to engage them in conversation or acknowledge them rather than just ordering drinks or services like they were your personal servant. We overhead some people remarking on the rude service after they barked at the staff like they were some kind of slave.The food..... we were prepared for mediocre to bad , based on previous reviews but managed to find more than enough to enjoy. The buffet although small had a decent variety and the quality was good. The pasta station was the busiest followed by the fish then the meat stations for the lunch and dinner buffets. Anyone that tried the pasta was quite happy with it. We saw several Quality managers with checklists reviewing the buffet products and bringing some of the chefs out of the kitchen to point out things too them. So management is taking some steps to try bringing up the food quality and presentation.Overall if you want to see one of the finest beaches in the world at an incredible low price (900-1100 Can$ for the week) and don't mind an older resort , go for it.

Unpleasant hotel in great location

We went here at the end of our holiday around Cuba.Positives:-Beautiful beach, white sand and clear blue water-Great weather-Quite a reasonable pricenegatives:-rooms were dirty and shutters were broken-all the fitness machines didn't work-pools might look great but are actually very dirty and full of spilt drinks and tissues-food is really quite disappointing, so unauthentic and tasteless

Quiet, Relaxing,Friendly

Forth time to Cayo Largo but first time at Sol Cayo Largo. The beaches were fantastic but wavy. Lots of palapas and sun cots at both the beach and the 2 large pools so always available. The bartenders and waiters were efficient and friendly. Loved the open air buffet restaurant after being closed in during our winter but the food could have been better. Hot food should be hot and cold food cold. Variety was lacking especially anything fresh such as tomatoes and greens. Also ran out of butter numerous times--dry toast for breakfast;ugh. Our room was comfortable and kept very clean by our cleaning lady but the room was weary and needs some updating as does the bathroom.
