My husband and I decided on a last minute trip south and chose Cuba as our destination. Sol Cayo Santa Maria was within budget and in spite of the mixed reviews we booked our trip. From arrival to check out the hotel, beach and staff exceeded our expectations! Sol Cayo Santa Maria is the oldest hotel in the area and... More

Just got back from our 4th trip here in 5 yrs. They still are renovating the resort but it was recently trashed by a huge Grad party this past March. The beach and staff here are still number one. Unfortunately some of the staff have relocated to other resorts and more are pending. Everyone at the pool bar and lobby... More

If it hadn't been for a few extraordinary staff members and the most beautiful beach I have ever seen, this trip would have been very disappointing. Granted August is a slow month for tourism in Cuba but we paid premium price to be ignored by front desk when we arrived. We paid extra money for a ocean view, only to... More

We stayed here in mid Aug 16 and it was billed as a luxurious resort, and having travelled around Cuba the previous week staying in all different excellent hotels this was definitely very disappointing. The shower did not work, cracked tiles on the entrance to the apartment, the handrail falling off up to the apartment, water running down the externally... More

I stayed there 9 horrible days from August 23rd to 31st, 2016. This hotel should be downgraded to 0 star! Our bathroom had so little water in the shower that it was nearly impossible to take a shower and do not even think to about hot water. The bathroom was not cleaned every day and we had to request the... More

We stayed back in April May 2013. I remember this hotel as being the oldest we've stayed at. The rooms were not fancy at all but A/C worked good showers. When you are on an island this beautiful what do you need your room for? The beds were pretty uncomfortable. This is due to age and supplies. The food staff... More
