We were at the SOL from April 8th - 15th 2014. We were not blessed with sun and calm waters this time. Red flags all week and 5 out of 7 days were grey and windy. This was the first time we booked for just a week at the SOL and even if the weather was not perfect, we came... More

the beach is stunning, no seaweed, nice and clean. The paths are quiet and shady. Most importantly is the people who work at this resort. A special shout out to Jorje Luis at the bar and lounge and can't forget Elsa, Vivian and Cary at the beach bar for everything! Of course all the staff were lovely too many to... More

2nd time here. Same perfect weather. No lineup for check in. Many of the same staff and the definitely the same friendly attitude. Fifteen hundred block was at the beach and had a great breeze and privacy to the porches/balconies. One change was the flute and cello duo at the piano bar. Lots of interesting versions of familiar tunes by... More

Stayed for 4 days, from March 24 to 28. Nice location, awesome beach . Rooms are musty smelling, plumbing is not reliable, everything shows signs of disrepair ! Food is good though. Bathroom has huge picture window with a curtain that's narrower than the window facing walkway. Great if you're an exhibitionist!

We were at the Sol for two weeks, March 11-25, 2014. We did not know what to expect because the reviews were all over the board, but decided to take the chance, and we are glad we did. The Sol was constructed in 2001, is the oldest resort on Cayo Santa Maria, and is fondly called "The Grandpa." As we... More

Hi, I have traveled to the Sol many times. Normally I go solo and have a nice restful time. This last time was for a family trip. I went with my boyfriend and my 6 month old baby and two step daughters (11 & 13). Everyone had a blast. The girls loved the beach and the wonderful attention by the... More

Stayed at the Sol from March 14 - 21. We had booked a superior ocean view room and we received what might be the best room on the property. We had stairs leading down to a sandy "back yard" and a path that lead to the beach and because the path was cleared we did have an ocean view. The... More
