Location: Beachfront, 6 minutes from Juan Vitalio Acuna International Airport.
We had everything we needed. They rooms are air conditioned with comfortable beds, the showers work fine, and we had clean rooms every day. The buffet was consistent and served a wide variety of everything. I'm a vegetarian and had a large selection to chose from. The snack bar had good food too. The international restaurant was our favourite. As always, the people were kind and genuine. We really enjoyed the beach and pool area too. I would go back for the value.
We've been to Cuba around ten times trying various regions and finally got around to trying the island of Cayo Largo. My wife and I stayed there the week of July 8-15th 2017 and had a great visit. First of all, the price was only C$718/person tax incl. so that was a nice start. We met some people that paid a bit less and some paid up to +C$900! Shop around folks!The resort is typical Cuban......could use some updating. Beds were comfortable and the room was clean and well stocked; towels, water , pop, beer, in fridge. We were even given a welcome bottle of champagne! Oh, and did I mention? We requested room on second floor when we booked and they upgraded us to a beautiful ocean view without even asking! Nice touch!As mentioned before, we have been to Cuba many times before and our primary goal is just to relax for a week on a beautiful beach. In that department , Cayo Largo, and more specifically, Sol Cayo Largo delivers. It's a beautiful white sand beach and if you're into walking, you can walk for hours as it is a big one! We were hoping for a bit of snorkelling but unfortunately, the water was a bit too wavy and silty to be able to see anything. It's true what I had read prior to coming; the sand is so white it never really gets too hot to walk on on those blazing hot days! For those who are on conservative side, beware that there is a clothing optional side of the beach! For adventurous ones, it's a nice surprise! The food was nothing to rave about but we don't go to Cuba for their fine cuisine. even by Cuban standards, the food was a notch down from what we've become accustomed to in Cuba. Vegetarians and fresh fruit lovers beware! It's an island and everything has to be flown in.......lower your expectations. I didn't see a single banana the whole week. I saw a mango served once. There were pineapples, papayas, guavas, etc. though. Most times there were canned fruit, peaches, pears, etc. Fresh veggies were a little scarce. I suspect there were a lot of frozen veggies from the looks of things......If you can happily survive on rice, various stews, fried chicken, fish, etc. No issues. They even had made to order pizza; i never tried it but it looked pretty good!The entertainment was good. House band was excellent and the animacion group more that capable. Though it was a pretty low-key resort, there were plenty of happy and entertained guests every night if you cared to stay up and watch the nightly shows.The service, although good was not the best I've experienced. The servers were warm and friendly but sometimes seemed more distracted by socialising amongst themselves than attending to guests. I'm not demanding and I don't mind getting up and fetching my own water/beer/coffee, etc. but I wasn't exactly eager to tip most of them as I was at other resorts.The layout of the resort is small and compact and nicely maintained. Everything was within walking distance. I will mention one thing though. Some nights at beginning of dusk, a small plane starts to fly suspiciously low around the resort. I asked and an employee confirmed, they are spraying for mosquitoes. If you have any sensitivities to this type of thing warned. I tried not to think about the fact that the main buffet is open air!We took a day trip to Play Sirenas (very beautiful and calm beach) and it only cost something like P5 each for return trip. While there they offer snorkeling trips for P10 or P25 each depending on who's asking. We didn't go but most people who did reported that there wasn't much to see. We walked along the beach and we ended up pretty much where the snorkeling tours go! I think we saved some money there!All in all, our stay at Sol Cayo Largo was exactly what we expected. It is a great value for what we paid. You cannot get that quality of beach for that price. For those looking for Disney on a beach with world class cuisine, you can pay C$1500+ and go to places like Aruba. But if you're just looking for a low key, relaxing week on a beach.......Cuba is still one of the best values dollar for dollar!
Just to start. This is the best of 5 trips to Cuba (at different places). This is the only hotel where you can enjoy the beach everyday and find a place to sit. There's a lot to do including walking, catamaran, scuba diving, snorkelling, trail exploring etc. Yes it is Cuba so this time of the year is very hot and humid. So prepare yourself to moderate your consumption of alcohol, hydrate well and rest as much as you can. The night entertainment was original and different. The local band was great too. Food was ok and diverse all through out the hotel. I tried every single bar and restaurant!
Rooms were okay, in need of some serious upgrades. The bed was terrible, never had a good nights sleep, up aching and sore everyday! Lots of hot hot water, but the pressure wasn't there. The bugs on and around the sink and counter top were awful! Would have loved a coffee maker in the room, the trek to the bar each morning to bring back a coffee to enjoy on the balcony just wasn't worth it. The beach had lots of shelters and plenty of loungers, but the waves every day and most days a red flag day made it impossible to enjoy it much. The pool on the other hand was kept very clean and we used it most days. Food was pretty poor, not a lot of fresh veggies , even lower than most resorts we've been to. All the staff was great! Friendly, helpful and genuine! Not a place I would ever consider going back to. First and last trip there for sure.
The rooms were fine, except the lack of a coffee maker in room. I love to wake up and have a coffee on the balcony every morning but had to go to lobby bar & get coffee in little plastic cups to do so, as you weren't allowed to bring real mugs away from the bar. I found the food pretty decent for Cuba, but please invest in some netting for keeping flies & birds off the food. There were some really friendly stand out staff, Ivo, (Jose) Palacia, Mario, Osmany, and the guy working night shift in lobby bar (sorry I didn't get his name, too groggy eyed @ 6am) made us feel very welcome. The beach in front of the resort was rough, but the walk from Sol to Sirenas beach was AMAZING! Bring sunscreen & water & make the trek, so many beautiful l spots to rest along the way. Traveled with my Dad & loved that there was no single charge & we each had our own room. Entertainment was sparse but we were on the beach all day so didn't bother us.
