Comparison - Sol Cayo Guillermo and Iberostar Daquiri

Has anyone stayed at both of these resorts. Looking for a comparison of rooms, food and most importantly the beach. Would also like to know if it is close to Pilar Beach - can you walk? We have stayed at the Sol but are looking at the ID. Also considering Iberostar Mojito and Sol Cayo Coco if anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

We have stayed at the Daiquiri, the room and bathroom was fine, we didn't care for the loud entertainment in the lobby bar, this would stop us going back. We usually stay at the MCG and we have visited the Sol. If for any reason we couldn't stay at the Melia we would choose the Sol. You couldn't walk to Pilar beach from any of the hotels, you can catch a bus that stops outside the hotels and drops you off there for 5cucs or get a taxi.

The grounds are nice at the Daiquiri, but that is in the "eye of the beholder". It is a tad newer and has some nice features but I feel the Sol is a bit more intimate and more laid back. It's a tuff to say. Preferences?

If the beach is priority, the Sol wins hands down. The best on the Strip!

As Pansy mentioned, the walk to Pilar out for most people. I do know of some who have done it. They said never again!

Good luck with your research!

The beach at the Sol is nicer :)

There is turtle grass (similar to MCG) on the ID beach.
