We would also like to know the answer to this. We will be taking our 16 yr old son so we would like to know suitability for him as well.

Beach is almost identical, there's not much distance between the two.

Snorkelling / diving / things to do in the area is the same at both resorts, more info here:

Having visited both when I stayed at the MCG, I would choose the Sol CG over the ID, but that is a personal preference, I don't think you can go wrong with either.

I should add that the dive centre is at the MCG, which is between the SCG and the ID! More info here:

Thank you. There is virtually no difference in the price of the two.

PS is the beach as beautiful as it looks in the pictures? Reminds me a little of the Maldives.

Better than the pics! Wow.We loved the Maldives but it is just so expensive to go there. The beach at Cayo Guillermo really reminds me of them.

There isn't a great "lot" to do in regards to a 16 year old at the scg,mostly centered towards a laid back atmosphere.The id has more of a younger personnel.
