Super close to the airport, ergo short bus ride which is great after the time you spent at the airport, especailly with small kids. Check-in was allright, so was the room, even though it was kinda old and ugly - you get what you paid for. They were going through some renovations, I believe. So try to get a renovated... More

Easy review. Food: not PLENTY or plenty to choose from. A la carte did not have a strict policy for dress code. Saddest part, there is NO food after certain hours, unless you count a small bread with cheese and warm ham. So if you get hungry fast, save some food in your fridge. The best spot, go to the...

It was the first time we went to all inclusive hotels and we were a little bit hesitant as to what we will confront. But everything was fine! The hotel complex provided all necessities, medicine care, shops,restaurants for all tastes, swimming pools and of course an infinite beach. Our room was spacious, clean,cool and quiet. I have no words to... More

We were dreading to go to an all inclusive resort like Sol Pelicano as the stereotypical stigma are attached to these resorts; as most people who go to these types of places either get serious stomach issues due to the food or the type of crowd that goes there. But we were very pleasantly surprised. The only way for you... More

Cayo Largo is a very special place, a one-of-a-kind vacation experience bound to soothe a beach lovers soul. However, if you visit with unrealistic expectations, you might find it’s not the kind of vacation you want, because it is certainly not for everyone. Cayo Largo is a small island with no permanent residents. Outside of the beaches, you can explore... More

We stayed at the Sol Pelicano from April 4 to April 18. This was our third visit to this resort. Overall we enjoy this resort but it does have some idiosyncrasies that travellers should know about so they will know what to expect from their Pelicano experience. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the housekeeping staff were lovely. In... More
