I want to thank all the staff at the Sol Pelicano for a great week in Cayo Largo (Nov 4-11,2013) It was the first week they were open for the season and was not full. Our room was bright, clean and renovated. Food was really, really good. Italian executive chef at the helm and food was full of flavour. Fresh calamari (one of my favourites) was available most days at the beach restaurant, The Ranchon. Excellent cappuccinos and mixed beverages in the Lobby bar. Very good pizza right beside the theatre. The pool and grounds are well maintained. Great mini-club for the young children. Music wasn't too loud - a refreshing change. The people of Sol Pelicano are happy, warm and so friendly. Please seek out some of the workers behind the scenes with your gifts. They work very hard and everyone deserves to 'be seen'. The tours are very reasonably priced. We did the sunset cruise, rented a car for the day and visited playa sirenis and playa paraiso. The bank in town (a 5 minute free shuttle-hold onto your hats peeps) will give you the best exchange rate over the airport and hotel lobby. You will also find some vendors there and a restaurant with cold cervezas. There isn't much shopping so don't be disappointed. No vendors on the beach. The sand on the beach is very fine and white and is hard-packed and very easy to walk on. You can walk for miles and miles (all the way to Playa Paraiso and Sirenis (2 hours or so). Warm shallow waters is what we found. Weather was 26-30 degrees everyday we were there at this time of year. We really enjoyed our stay and we will definitely be coming back to Cayo Largo again. We booked with HolaSun and had a great morning flight in; were on the beach before noon. I am a travel agent and also visited several of the other larger hotels there so if you would like some insight, feel free to message me.
