As in many places in Cuba staff is the best part of your holiday experience. Sol Cayo Santa Maria resort is small and friendly. It’s not hard get to know everybody by name. The atmosphere is easy going, no line ups at the bar. At the buffet they might be few at the grill but not bad at all. Food... More

Before we left I was a little nervous based on some of the reviews the resort got. However once we were there, we had a great time. Yes the hotel is older, but the rooms are clean and relatively comfortable. There was one review blasting the fumigating that happens, I for one was happy for this, my husband and I... More

This was my 3rd time to this small resort and the service from all staff was outstanding. The friendly director is always present and ready to resolve issues. The lounge singer is amazing.The resort is getting renovated slowly and getting better every time I go . I think this resort is worth the renovation cause its smaller size makes it... More

Sol Cayo Santa Maria is the oldest resort on the island. But don't let that deter you. The rooms are clean and comfortable with breath taking views of the ocean. The buffet was good. Lots of variety 3 times a day. They don't have salt, pepper and condiments that we are use to in Canada so bring your own. In... More

This was part of a package for us but by choice there are better resorts on the island. This place has seen better days and although the staff are willing and attentive they are up against it here. Canteen catering and iffy plumbing combined with very loud music blasting out all day long does quite make up for the pools... More

This is our 4th trip to Sol Cayo Santa Maria. We were there from Jan 8 -22 There are so many positives about the resort. It's a beautiful setting with a long beach.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sol Cayo Santa Maria in April 2014 and we have already booked for April 2016. Our room was fine, the food was good and the beach was excellent. This is a smaller resort with only about 300 rooms which makes it perfect for relaxation. I understand they are making renovations to parts of... More
