This is a smaller resort but quite a gem. The beach is lovely food was good and our room was nice. Lovely little coffee area. We hired a cab who took us into Santa Maria for the day which was amazing. We went to Che's memorial which I recommend and then went to a resteraunt called Che. Best food ever.... More

After reading some of the reviews on here before heading for vacation Aug 30 to Sep 6th, I was a little hesitant in what to expect. All I can say is I don't know what the people who wrote negative reviews are talking about because I was blown away by the excellent service that we received from the day we... More

The hotel facilities are dated, food barely palatable and not much distractions at night, BUT if you are a snorkeling fan and you can't double your spending to stay in the neighboring Melia Buenavista which has equally good snorkeling condition, this is the one. You will forget about all other deficiencies of the hotel when you are the west end... More

This is the oldest hotel on the cayo and is in disrepair. The food was good but became repetitive. I liked how the rooms were 4 per unit, but it did become confusing at night to find which one was yours. The night time entertainment was good. There were next to no daytime activities. The location of the bars was... More

I have stayed at this resort twice. Whether you will enjoy your time at The Sol depends on two things: what you want from a vacation, and what you actually need. 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

This is a good hotel by any standards, but a great one by Cuban standards. Very helpful staff. all very keen to speak English and know why so few English now visit. Food was good.
