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.

Going Back to Paradise

I love the Sol Cayo Santa Maria because the staff and the beach are the best in the Caribbean. The staff are friendly, polite, helpful and make one feel like part of their family. Thank you to Pancho, wonderful captain of the Italian restaurant, Yumi and Martha. Lachi, Adrian, Anet, Marbee, Robert, Leo, Mike, Yosvani and Joleioy are fabulous dancers and entertainers and so very talented. Yimy, Fabio, Eddy, Brito, Rogney, Jorge Luis and Ernesto are serving the bars and restaurants and make me feel very welcomed.The white, fine, sandy beach stretches for miles in both directions. The ocean is clear and azure and in constant change, reaching to the distant horizon.Rooms are spacious and mine overlooked the ocean. Thank you Rosa.It is the oldest resort on the key and is being refurbished by very polite workers.I am always excited to go back to paradise.

Exceeded Our Expectations!

My husband and I decided on a last minute trip south and chose Cuba as our destination. Sol Cayo Santa Maria was within budget and in spite of the mixed reviews we booked our trip. From arrival to check out the hotel, beach and staff exceeded our expectations! Sol Cayo Santa Maria is the oldest hotel in the area and did show signs of being tired. In spite of this, the hotel, grounds, pools and beach were spotlessly clean. In fact, there were guests from the hotel next door coming to our hotel on a daily basis because the beach was in better shape and cleaner than the one at their hotel!There is an obvious sense of pride in the employees and owners. The staff were generous in spirit and incredibly hard working and in spite of their 2 hour bus ride to work every day they were smiling and welcoming from sun up to sun down. We enjoyed getting to know them and learning about their families and way of life.We did have a challenge with the plumbing in our room and with one call our issue was taken care of, there was also a follow-up call by the management the next day. More great serviceThe hotel was going through some obvious upgrades and renovations while we were there and a few of the restaurants and the dance club were closed. In spite of this, there was lots to offer; restaurants, different bars, buffet. We were never with out a drink when we wanted one and the food was plentiful and very good. This was one of our most relaxing and memorable vacations, thank you Sol Cayo Santa Maria and Staff, we look forward to seeing you again!

Beach still the best

Just got back from our 4th trip here in 5 yrs. They still are renovating the resort but it was recently trashed by a huge Grad party this past March. The beach and staff here are still number one. Unfortunately some of the staff have relocated to other resorts and more are pending. Everyone at the pool bar and lobby bar are great ( Oscar, Fabio, Julio, Annamaisy etc.. can't remember everyone. Staff at the buffet and recreation dept and the cooks were great also. The buffet had lots of choices and again the pizza and beach restaurants are great. The grounds keepers are doing a great job also. I hope that the renovations will be completed quickly ( it would be sad to see the Sol get run down more). Our trip was good but Air Canada lost our luggage, (very stressful for my wife and of course me!) and we didn't receive it until the day before we left ( no fault of Cuba or the Sol.) The Sols customer rep ( Patchy, I believe) was great and told me if they could do anything they would. The air Canada reps at the resort were great also but AC didn't update them anytime. All in all we enjoyed meeting up once again with our friends at the resort and we look forward to seeing everyone again soon! Thanks for the memories David Terry, Sydney Nova Scotia Canada
