First time to Cayo. Generally it is a bit isolated compared to the expanse of Varadero which we have had multiple trips to. Staff are most pleasant and accomodating. We live in an imperfect world and these folks on the whole put their hearts into ensuring you are well looked after. If concerns arise re: noisy a/c, plumbing, etc., a... More

Just back from our third visit to the Sol Cayo Guillermo. Stayed from 3 June 2015 for two weeks. We had extra day because plane back to UK delayed, so came home on the 18th. We were a bit concerned when we read the comments in TripAdvisor, because as return guests we didn't think some of comments were very helpful.... More

*WARNING* Extensive Rant, Scroll Down To Bottom For Key Points This hotel has driven me to never want to go back to Cuba EVER AGAIN. Yes, this resort most definitely had the nicest beach. Clean sand, clear water and plenty of space so that you never felt too close to other people, but, this resort was extremely lacking and I... More

Only 78 more days until I return to this quaint little spot in Cuba. I have to say one of my favorite places thus far and I have seen almost all of cuba with the exception of Santiago and Baracoa. The staff are amazing all the way up to management. I cannot begin to thank the sales manager Nelido enough.... More

I've been to this hotel two times previously and cannot fault the hotel in itself really. Yes the rooms and certain areas could do with updating but what people forget is that Cuba is not as modern or up to date as other countries and what may be needed to fix or update the hotel must be ordered and a...

This is my first time staying at this hotel, and I had read a lot of mixed reviews before hand, so went with an open mind and no expectations. Having visited Cuba before, I knew what to expect with the basic standard of living. I have travelled to most Caribbean islands, and Cuba is definitely in the top 3 for... More

Trip Advisor – Sol Cayo Guillermo Hotel is considerably tired and need of some updating, in some places structurally but in most cosmetically. Hotel is clean, staff friendly and in the main they are very friendly and happy to help make your holiday a pleasant one. The rooms are comfortable, clean but again they are dated. We had to get...
