“amazing beaches!!!”
Reviewed 28 February 2011

all i have to say is if you are looking for amazing beaches.. this is the place to be. the hotel is a regular hotel in cuba, the nicest in our opinions on the island. it was all we needed. we are beach people so we spend most of our time on the beach. long walks with nobody in sight for hours is exactly what you will get. blue blue waters. ocean view room was well worth it, every evening we sat on our balcony and enjoyed a bottle of wine while watching the sun set.

the pool and grounds were nice. not five star but i would rate it four stars. the beach resturants and the lobster dinners are very nice.

rooms are clean and large.

the drive to the resort was less than ten minutes which is a huge perk for us. service is good. if you explain what you what, they will do whatever it takes to accomadate. if you want wine for the room, just ask and you will see for the rest of the week they will make sure you have your fridge stalked. tipping may help as well.

renting a jeep for the day was very intresting. we were able to drive to some private beaches and tour the island and not get lost as there is basically just one road.

they have a shuttle that goes a few times a day to the parriso beach. it has a small bar there where you can purhcase drinks and walk out so far in the water and see lots of starfish. its a pretty beach but so is the beach in front of the hotel.

we dont normally do excursions but we did this time. the catamaran excursion was a very very well worth day spent sailing to islands and snorkle reefs with a lobster/chicken lunch included. drinks were also included., cans of beers ect.

we walked around other hotels and we were very happy we chose the sol cayo largo. if your looking for a party vacation... this is not the place for you.

the food was ok. we were always able to find something we enjoyed. chicken/hamburgers/pasta was excellent. also very much liked the fresh breads.

definatly return.

We just returned from Sol Cayo Largo, a 2 week stay. Feb 4-18,2011
Enjoyed every moment of our holiday.
Flew CanJet with no problems at all.
Our room was spacious and clean, housekeeping was excellent and personalized.
The layout of the hotel was comfortable and well maintained.
The food was plentiful and good, gain some weight while we were there!
The staff were amazing... friendly and wanting to please all the time, regardless whether you tipped or not.
The beach was clean and went on for miles. Waves were rough a few days but we had fun playing in them.
Went to Playa Paraiso one day and the water was a bit calmer, crystal clear. Transfer was free from the hotel via trolley train with numerous time options to come and go.
Sol Cayo Largo is a place for relaxing, not for someone looking for alot of parties.
Overall one of the best places we've been to in all our travels so far.
We are definately going to return again!

We have travelled to many places and this is the best beach I have ever seen.
We never go back to the same place twice because there are somany places in the world, but this is a return place anytime.
The Sol Cayo Largo was very friendly and the place is clean. The food is Cuban not alot of flavor but bring some spicies and lots to choose from.
the pizza is great at the pool bar. the lobster is good where ever you get it from.
We did a dinner at the marina at the restaurant there and had a great dinner of lobster and steak and great wine. Lobster is $20 cuc just about every where butit is a nice size and mmmm.
The beach is breathless, aqua blue clolours and powder sand so white. You can walk forever and enjoy the sounds of the ocean and the awesome beach, there really wasn't too many people and for such a beauty spot we had no problems getting chairs or having a private spot in the ocean.
there is nudity but you get a few chuckles out of it and really was not a problem.
We came in that way, there is none around the pool or hotel so stay there if it bothers you.
Staff are so friendly and they aim to please, always smiling and love to chat about anything. Remeber to get 3 drinks and giveone to a hard working staff memeber.
We did up grade to a ocean front room, which was nice to go out and listen to the waves and enjoy the hammock.
Here are my few compliants and I only state them hoping the management reads and learns what can make paridise be perfect.
Stock the fridge, really what does a can of pop cost, we get it free anyway, all the other resorts re stock daily.
Some english music would have been nice once in a while, instead of the christmas music at dinner and the same cd everyday at the pool.
Would be niced to see all the water features working at the resort, maybe next time.
I upgraded so that we could enjoy coffee every morning in our room and yes thats alot of money for coffee but it is what we enjoy, but they had no coffee all week for the coffee machine, that wewere very disappointed since we bought a large of baily's to have with our coffee and hammock.
The massage was great and for $25cuc you can not beat that for an hour.
Other then that all was great there was plenty of chairs at the pool and the beach.
Taxis were cheap enough and no problem to get.
Check in was good and check out was great as well.
taking a taxie to the airport was a great idea to beat the crowds
We can not believe we did not find this paridise before now and would go back in a heart beat.

We have been vacationing in Cuba now for 10 years. We will be returning to Sol on March 5 this year. We go to relax on the naturist beach and we always look forward to renewing our aquaintances with the staff. The staff are always very attentive, professional and friendly. We always try to get a room at the west end ( 3244 is our favourite) and we are never disappointed. Over the years there have been a few minor glitches with the food. Last year at the Ranchon at the beach some of the meals were sub standard and they ran out of white wine, but all in all it was very acceptable. The entertainment staff are wonderful. The kids work very hard on the evening shows and they are very talented performers. The local bands are also wonderful and we especially enjoy the Cuban music. The bar staff is always entertaining ( Noel :0) ) and the serving staff in the buffet are wonderful (Ania ). We particulary like going down to the beach early in the morning and setting up for the day, have coffee at the bar, then a leisurely breakfast, then back to the beach. Going back year after year we have noticed some wear and tear in the rooms and around the resort in general and we can understand that for someone going there for the first time that it may seem a bit sub standard, but we find we generally have nothing to complain about. What makes it all worth while are the friendships we have developed over the years with the staff and their untiring efforts to make our vacations enjoyable. We love Sol Cayo Largo and ope that it never changes.

Sol Cayo Largo was recommended to us by friends who had been there 6 times.
We have been to other parts of Cuba 3 times, but we really loved this place.
If you are like us, and are looking for; beautiful beaches, great weather, lovely grounds, clean rooms, and a place to really relax....this is it! The staff at Sol are wonderful! Very attentive and sweet. You can walk for an hour and a half along the beach one way if you want, or you can stand where you are and look at the ocean, or take a train to outer beaches with not so high waves. The food...well not so bad, you will not starve! Every morning, fresh cooked eggs and omelets, fruit, yummy yogurt, toast, tasty juices...dinner, fresh cooked pork roasts, fish and turkey. Don't expect Canadian food, remember you are in a country that does not have access to everything. Enjoy the ride!
My only complaint, and I hope the owners are reading this....your beach restaurant needs work....there were flies all over the open bin of pork, and one of the staff sprayed and insecticide over the meat!!! Not good, not good at all. But rest assured there are other places to eat that are much better, such as the restaurant by the pool. Also, please cook the meat all the way through....if it is not a steak, cook it all the way, the "hamburgers" which were actually" porkburgers" and were not cooked all the way through.
Sand flies on the beach, oh yeah, you cannot avoid them in the Carribean, wear insect repellent on your legs to avoid them.
All in all a wonderful place, we met new wonderful friends, and we would love ot go back to Sol Cayo Largo and most likely will do that!

This was our 10th time at The Sol Cayo Largo. We stayed for 3 weeks. Of course the hotel is starting to get old and needs renovations in the bathroom (rust and mildew) but the rooms are very nice and comfortable. Some sliding doors to the balcony also need changing.
The PR team is excellent and always ready to help. The staff overall is always the same for the last 10 years. The change in manager this year was welcome, because the management that was there Jan 2010 was not very pleasant and we could feel the the staff was not happy.
A big plus for the change. The only thing we would like to see improved is the Internet connection and also to try to do something about the people using it for hours on Facebook (which slows the connection drastically).
Overall another exceptionnal vacation for us. We will go back for sure.
