Sol Cayo Largo is grrrreat. Sol does not disappoint!!
I have been to Cuba quite a few times, first time to Cayo Largo area. I must say I do not go to Cuba for the food, or fancy hotels... I go for the beach and the rum!!! The beach at this resort is amazing, def 5 star beach. You can also take a little "choo-choo train" on wheels to another fantastic beach a few minutes down the road where they have snorkel gear and all the non motorized water sports. The food was pretty good to my surprise! - at breakfast time they had yummy crêpes and omelettes aside from the regular buffet food. The snack bar was grrrreat - spaghetti bolognèse, chicken sandwhiches.. they even had poutine! For dinner at the buffet there is an amazing fresh pasta selection made just the way you like it! The fruit and fruit juices are so delicious!
Alexander from the pool bar is amazing! And Oscar at the lobby bar was grrreat!
It is not a party resort - def a relaxing vacation which is exactly what I needed. Would def return, no complaints other than the massage which was very...rough. Our air conditioner was leaky and when I advised the front desk it was fixed within a couple hours. They go out of their way to make sure you are alwaysss having a good time and happy!! They even sent a bottle of champagne to our room!! Vast majority at this resort are return clients which is a good sign - one man had been here every year for the past 20 years!! By far the best resort on the island in my opinion from what I saw and heard.
I went horseback riding by the ocean, saw Lola the iguana who loves to pose for pics, even saw a crocodile! Released a baby sea turtle into the ocean (check out the turtle rehabilitation center for 1 CUC and taxi ride is 2 CUC per person def worth a look they do such amazing work to protect this endangered species- they have put over 100 000 turtles back into the ocean thus far), took out some bikes and strolled around and mostly lazed on the beach sipping my piña colada. You can also rent scooters and jeeps right beside the resort which is very convenient.
FYI - yes there ARE bugs outside - you're on a remote island people, c'mon and be realistic! But not nearly as bad as the reviews post - I almost didn't choose this resort after reading the "bug reviews" as i HATE bugs - and I'm glad I didn't listen to the complaints as I am 100% satisfied with my vacation and will tell everyone how great Sol Cayo Largo is!
