If you want a gorgeous beach, relaxing atmosphere, good drinks, and clean rooms, then this hotel is for you! As for your needs, if we're being realistic all you... More

We have just come back from touring Cuba and stayed at lovely casas particulares. However staying at the Sol for 3 days was far from being enjoyable! The food was terrible apart from the pizza place (los flamencos) where the service was great. Yes there is a lot of choice at the buffet restaurant but the quality and the service... More

I want to say first of all from reading these reviews, a lot of my fellow Canadians are very spoiled and bratty. They never experienced anything outside the realm of their bland suburbanite lives. People shouldn't expect a four star hotel in Cuba to be the same as a four star hotel in Paris. It is completely ignorant of their... More
