Our Opinion

Sol Cayo Santa Maria is a quaint older resort, not a bad choice as far as budget options in Cayo Santa Maria. Although the bungalow style resort is the oldest in the area, the rooms are being renovated. They have a restaurant on the beach and lobster dinner is included. Great mojitos here. A kid's club is available for ages 0-12.

A stunning Sol Melia property, this hotel offers a romantic getaway with an abundance of services and amenities. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation on a white sandy beach then come and visit the Sol Cayo Santa Maria. This exquisite property has been lovingly designed to blend perfectly with the unspoiled natural surroundings of the area, including a spectacular stretch of virgin sand beach. Guests enjoy a complete range of today's most popular amenities and a setting where dreams come true.

Location: On the beach at Cayo Santa Maria, 90-minute drive from Santa Clara or 3 hr drive from Cayo Coco airport.

Went for our last five day vacation after traveling around Cuba. We weren’t luck with them weather but still what a place. The Cuban Caribe is absolute gorgeous. The water is cristal clear but not very warm, white sand and the beach is amazing. Just go!

Relaxing and Friendly

We stayed at Sol Cayo Santa Maria from Jan 3 to 10, 2018. Even though the resort hit hard by Irma and many things were not up to date, but our stay was made very relaxing and enjoyable by the friendly and hard working staff. The high lights of the trip;1. Music lessons.2. The evening show was great. Though it was performed inside due to the rain every day.3. Very friendly staff at the main lobby bar, front desk and customer service.Other:Room was pretty nice except hot water issues.The set-up of the resort is excellent.Food was not bad at all ----- average but no complaint.Cuban restaurant was great and Italian was good.--- Could not enjoyed the beach and pool due to the weather was not so great.Overall --- it was well worth spending a weak at SOL.Parm - from Toronto

Perfect beach, very nice hotel, good food!

The beach was one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. The food was amazing- which doesn’t happen very often in Cuba. There is BBQ for lunch , the quality is really good. The room was really nice, big and clean. We had seaview. The beach was perfectly clean. Drinks were not that big so you need to order more often, which is the case in most all-inclusive-hotels. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Beautiful beach, low-key hotel, relaxing stay

We visited as a family with teens at the beginning of January 2018. Although the hotel was closed for 3 months after Hurricane Irma, the only signs now are slightly frayed palmtrees and newly planted shrubs. The layout of the bungalows and the well designed gardens help make the hotel feel very uncrowded, peaceful and relaxing. The beach is exceptional - with this hotel having the best position on the cayo, in terms of width of beach, and sea conditions. To the west, there are no more hotels until the very tip of the cayo, so there is an empty beach for walking. To the east it is clear that the other hotels are rather packed in together, along a thin strip of sand. Dinghy sailing, windsurfing and pedaloes are included in the package. And tennis courts, and a games area with table football and billiards are available. Our teens were never at a loss for something to do. The massage therapist, Roberto, was fantastic, combining chinese massage with reflexology, and a couple of chiropractic moves - possibly the best I´ve ever had! Thoroughly recommended!The rooms were fine for a 4* hotel, with an abundance of hot water, and functioning aircon. The public spaces - bars, restaurants - are ample for the number of guests. We never felt inconvenienced by too many people, even in this peak season. This is definitely a hotel I feel I could return to.

An Interesting Experience

Many employees worked long hours to make our stay at Sol Cayo Santa Maria as interesting and pleasant as possible. Ada at the bar lobby, Dailyn at the pizza restaurant, and Roberto (room-cleaning) were especially friendly and helpful. We appreciated how hard Gladys and Miguel Alejandro and Miguel and many others worked to prepare dinner at La Picua on New Year's Eve. Be nce, have a sense of humour, and enjoy the stunning beach. If the Hotel Sol management agrees to give everybody a well-deserved raise, I promise to change my rating to Excellent!
