We booked this resort last minute and only did minimal homework. Some reviews we read are glowing and some are downright scary, but without doubt we were pleasantly surprised. We just returned yesterday and I thought it important to add my 2cents to help quell some of the fears. Remember, you are in Cuba and quite a way from the main island. We were aware that there (were?) are some issues with water. Yes there were times when a trickle came out of the tap and there were times that there was nothing. It sounds unthinkable but it was really not that bad. We never went without being able to shower or wash our hands. Mainly the issues happened at night or early in the morning but we had water during the day. You may experience some dips in pressure but overall I didn’t find it the least bit inconvenient. We met travellers staying at other resorts who had similar experiences so you will be no worse off than anyone else.The room was nothing fancy but it was always clean and the bed was very comfortable. We went to Cuba for the sun and sand, not room decor.The grounds are very pretty and well laid out with lots of manicured paths to get you where you’re going. For those wondering, we only saw a couple of iguanas when we walked down the beach to the right.None on the grounds. Yay!There are areas out on the beach that are nude. It’s not imposing or uncomfortable so no need to worry about that. I would say the food was great! There was a lovely lady making crepes every morning and an omelette bar. There’s bacon, ham and fresh bread everyday so you will not be wandering aimlessly looking for something to eat. Dinner was just as great! The international a la carted was spectacular! We left very full and very satisfied I assure you.Now the important part, the staff. They are an amazing, hard working group who really do go out of their way to ensure you are happy and taken care of. I found no one who was tip motivated or unfriendly. We were greeted by everyone as if they were old friends thrilled to see us! If you are in the buffet, please go see Carlos. He is a beautiful man with an absolutely kind heart. Yosbel was always welcoming and a treat to see everyday. Noel is a super fun guy who always made us laugh. These people work long hours everyday. Take a minute to thank them and the many others for their dedication. They really do give you everything they have and then some.If you are wondering if you chose the right resort, go take a quick walk through the one next door. It’s not even close to the caliber of Sol! In closing, the food is great, the staff are amazing and I would absolutely return to this resort just to see the magical show again. The “magician” and his lovely “assistant” were the best! The dancers, the ladies who sing are top notch! Oh, I can’t forget about the band. Holy, they are talented! Buy the cd. It’s only $10 and worth every penny.Go, relax and have a good time. You won’t regret it 😋
We stayed from december 24-31, Negative:the rooms need some love and more cleaning ( bed heads are rusty, covers had sands on them when we arrived). The Entertainment team were doing their best but I've seen so much better in Cuba.. By the end of our stay there was no more water to wash ourselves, they claimed it was a generalised problem on the island of Cayo Largo but the tourists we met from other hotels said they had plenty of water. The staff made it sound like it was the first time ever happening but same complains were written in previews reviews in the month of november. So for two days we had to wash ourselves with water bottles ( what a waste) and use the same Beach Towels.Postive:The beaches are so beautiful ! For 2 CUC you can take a cab to the virgin Islands: PLAYA SERENA AND PLAYA PARAISO. Breath taking view ! We also took the whole day excursion in which we went on a catamaran snorkled, visited natural swimming pools with starfishes all over and an iguana Island and you have an option of Lobster or Chicken that you eat on the boat. It was a memorable experience. On Playa Serena theres a volleyball net, pedalos and you can tour with a small Catamaran, the chairs are rented for 2 cuc. Playa Paraiso is 20 min walk from Playa Serena and its BREATHTAKING! Also you should know that its 1h30 walk from the hotel. The staff are very helpful and nice, specially at the reception even though we had the impression they were low staff often times.The WIFI is only in the lobby 1CUC per hour, you buy a card and try to log in, depending on how many people are connected it can take 20-30 min before being able to connect but once your connected it works pretty well i was able to facetime with family from there. The Food was good considering its Cuba, we always found something like pasta, pizza, crepes and eggs in the morning... but not much variety, you can tell vegetables are from cans like mushroom cans. lot of cheese like Blue Cheese and Goat cheese... In conclusion we like our stay, the beach is worth going back for, the hotel we will reconsider...
We went for a 1 week vacation in November and had read all the other reviews before.Water problem supplies: yes, they happen mostly during overnight and mid of the day but it is available at peak times. However, we have prepared ourselves by having some bottles of water in the room just in case.Food variety: yes, there is not that much food variety but it is not bad. You can find international food (pizzas, pasta, meat, fish,...) and in some days really fresh food. It is comprehensible because we are talking about an island where supplies are not received daily.Mosquitoes and bugs: yes, go prepared with a mosquito repellent but still expect to be bitten some times. Those suckers are persistent. The best option for your room is to have the aircon with low temperature and they will stay away.The resort overall is good but we see the damages from being so close to the water. They are renovating it slowly.This is not a 5-star resort so don't expect that kind of resort.Beach: amazing... best one we have ever been!Island: beautiful... rent a 4x4 moto to meet the island because it is worth it!We recommend the hotel but don't expect any kind of luxuries!
This was our second time to Cayo Largo del sur Cuba. We stayed at one of the other resort in March. The Sol Cayo Largo is not for everyone, if want a resort that is 5 stars and a place that the music is loud all night long than this is not your place. Sol Cayo Largo is a great place to relax and have fun. The beach is beautiful with white powder sand. The restaurant at the beach has a great barbeque, they have fish, pork and other meat cooking. The pool has a nice swim up bar and a another great snack bar for lunches. We rented the ATV to tour the island again which is a great way to see the other beaches and the rest of the isalnd a very good deal. The staff are the best and second to none they are helpful, friendly and they make your stay special. The food was good we never went hunger and mywife isvery picky. The only thing is they don't seem to have potatoes but other than that there is everything you want. Also the only thing they need to improve on is more umbrellas on the beach. As I said at the start this resort is not for everyone all I know is that we are looking forward to going back at the end of Marh a great place to relax.
My third time to Sol,Cayo Largo. I needed a week to relax and read my books. And I did it. My room with a grudge was facing the pool and it was ok. There was no room facing the ocean. Almost no kids and quiet. The beach is a beauty and you can walk very very far. I would have like more palapa in the Beach it seems they were all on the nudist side. This resort is so clean you could eat in the floors . A few negative that has not change. - wifi is the worst....- at the bar it looked like they are tip oriented.- snack bar menu is no good, there is almost anything to eat ....- and my breakfast seems like I could not find anything I liked.Other then that I loved their lunch and dinner. Coffee at the bar is the best. All to say I would go back and all the staff are lovely xoxox
