Having researched this resort, we came there knowing it was the oldest on the island. There were a few issues with some of the infrastructure being old, and needing some repair. This did not detract from our overall experience. The food was better than any resort we stayed at in Varadero, plus the staff was very friendly and helpful. If... More

Although a little older place, its constantly being renovated, room by room. Just a nice size resort for us, not too far to walk anywhere. Food was good, main buffet is enclosed and air conditioned, big plus after the beach on those hot days. Very good selection of food, in both meats and veggies. Staff were awesome and very friendly!... More

My boyfriend and I decided to go on our first vacation together in August 2014. We were on a budget as we are both students so we weren't expecting a 5-star experience. When we first arrived, we had to find our room on our own, there was no one to show us after we checked in. The first day was... More

We stayed Feb 12 - 26, 2015, couple in our early 50's. I had done my homework, read up on TripAdvisor and came with a total understanding of what to expect. If you want 5 star then book 5 star, otherwise your vacation is what you make of it. We found the place to be exactly what we love about... More

The staff was great. Like many other reviews, I would suggest this to be a good destination if you are looking for a "lie on the beach or by the pool" holiday. We took a catamaran excursion which was very good and the snorkeling off the beach wasn't bad but I had expected more. The location is very isolated. It... More

We arrived at that this resort with low expectations and were not disappointed. But never thought we would be experiencing Survivor Cuba. This is the third trip to Cuba and this was the worst. The trip from the airport was uneventful and check in was ok. We paid for a superior room with an ocean view and it was that.... More

I'm sure that if you want a holiday during which you do nothing then the Sol Santa maria would be adequate, but be aware that cayo santa maria is an island with absolutely nothing but hotels on it. We took the "panoramic bus tour" which simply drives from one hotel to another -there is nothing to visit or do. We... More
