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. 

If a stunning beach is your vacation priority, look no further. Everyone raves about the stunning white sand, turquoise waters and calm seas here. Perfect for a low-key vacation whether you're a couple, a family, or anyone looking for complete relaxation. And the staff garner rave reviews for their enthusiasm, friendliness and service.

Location: Beachfront, 10 minutes from Juan Vitalio Acuna International Airport, 11 minutes to Pueblo.

Great Vacation

Ive been all over Cuba and this is the place that I want to go back every time. The beaches are paradisiac, walked for hours enjoying the sun and sea. The staff at Pelicano are amazing was treated like royalty couldn't ask for anything more. Dinaldo and Nader are the best at the Zun Zun Bar. Enjoyed my stay hope to go back soon.

We ♡ Cuba

This was our first time here and we love it. Definitely going back. It's like home away from home. The staff are beautiful souls♡ Bartenders Yanni, Angel and Yosvanny took great care of you at the bars. Victor at the buffet always treated us well and what can I say about the entertainment staff. Larissa and Lazardo made us feel like family. We cannot wait to go back in spring 2017. Rooms were clean and ac worked great. Amenities were on par for what to expect in Cuba. Our fridge didn't work when we checked in late at night and once we notified the front desk it was replaced the following morning. Beach was amazing. Water was a little rough but we knew that was common for the island. Great snorkeling straight out from the beach hut off the clothing optional beach. We've also been to Verdaro and found Cayo Largo to be more our pace. It's not a 24/7 party but if you are looking to relax on a great beach and meet some amazing local staff then Sol Pelicano is your place to be.I do suggest you bring some sort of bug repellant and benadryl for the after bite. I found out I am more allergic to the bug bites here. Had to go to there pharmacy to get cream and ty again she was very helpful. Beautiful souls on this island. We ♡ Cuba

Another great visit to this Hotel

3rd year going here and once again it does what you expect, staff very friendly, Food excellent, location wonderful, it's very central to everything needed and we always land lucky getting rooms on the sunset side....not a negative but observation: 1. be good to place about 3 benches across from Main entrance, as you get lots standing about here waiting on friends etc...2. Would be nice to be able to have a cup of tea/coffee after diner in evening.will be back in 2017 thanks to all at Pelicanos

Incredible Beach but Supply Management Issues Remain Unaddressed

In late December 2015 my wife and I went to Sol Pelicano for our fourth and last visit. I say last because the quality has deteriorated so much in each of the last two years that I don't want to waste a week's vacation when the only real redeeming quality about the place is the incredible beach.We have been to Cuba 15 times and we are aware that other 3 to 5 star resorts in this wonderful country do not have the problems getting fresh food to their customers that Pelicano's management seem to have. Canned meat, vegetables and fruit were routinely part of the buffet. Canned vegetables were served as part of the a la carte meal. In the past two years they have run out of french fries, eggs, draught beer, hot chocolate, ice cream, carbonated pop to name a few.There no longer is a pool table, unless it has been replaced. The shows at night are okay. Not my cup of tea. I think the act of having male guests dress as women is a little old and should be scrapped. What would be wrong with having a real Cuban band play each night followed by the dancers?Bugs were bad. The resort does use insecticide around 6pm to try to control the noseeums with very limited success. Some folks were unaffected while many others were sporting numerous large welts from where they had been bitten.As this was going to be out fourth visit, I e-mailed in advance and requested a room from one of two different blocks as we had paid for ocean view. Not only did I not receive a reply but the block requested was not accommodated so that we ended up with a partial view of a building and a partial view of the ocean. Room requests for a family trip during New Years 2014-15 weren't accommodated either, so I guess I shouldn't have been surprised.As repeat customers we were to be given a, "special dinner." Since we were not given this during the previous trip; in spite of frequent reminders to different management, we again had to remind the, "Customer Service," staff that we wanted to be included. I don't feel you should have to hound the staff for what you you are entitled to as a repeat customer.I cannot see a return to this resort until Sol management recognize that they may have to get creative in addressing the short falls in food supply. To those that say, "that's Cuba," I say that in my experience it hasn't been at any other Cuban resort we have been to.

Another great vacation at the Pelicano

This was our eighth visit to Cayo Largo and our sixth to the Sol Pelicano. Had a great time once again, largely due to the staff, who are the best we have found in all of Cuba. Special thanks to the staff of the Zun Zun snack bar, the hard-working grill chef, and the staff at El Catey lobby bar, who made our vacation very special. Congratulations and thanks to Manager Alejandro, who seems to be everywhere taking care of everything and whose pride in this resort is evident. They were closing for the season as we were leaving but rest assured we will return.
