Rarely do we go back to the same place for a vacation over and over again unless it is consistently special. Cayo Largo is one of those "special" places so we went back for a third time to the Sol Pelicano from February 4th until 11th. The Cubana flight to and from Toronto was fine and on time both ways...

Unfortunately, just days before we arrived the beach had a major erosion. The staff worked hard daily to clean it up and expand as much as possible with moving the sand around constantly. This did not affect our swimming, just had to walk down a little path. Water was clear, warm and even tho a bit windy - totally beautiful!...

Minus getting there and no beer for 24hrs(we were however compensated with a private lobster dinner for 4, just beautiful EVERYTHING) We were very pleased with all the staff!!! Entertainment, bar staff(both bars), buffet staff and front desk! Please note when you stay here, chances are you'll be aquatinted to the same staff everywhere, as the employees stay for 20...

Honestly, if it wasn't for my Wife getting sick, I would give this place above average rating. This venue is dated, needs major refit. Lobby is somehow dark and not welcoming at night. Rooms are nice size with balcony and short stroll to the beach. Do not plan to take a shower in the afternoons, simply no warm water and...

We stayed at Pelicano Jan 28-Feb 4. This was our second visit in the last 3 years. This time we were quite disappointed right from the beginning. We had to wait 40 min for the bus to arrive to take us from the airport for 8 min drive to the hotel. The rep of Hola Sun at the airport could...

We stayed January 2015. Check in was okay, they treated us well and since we where arrived early they stored our luggage while we checked out the beach and buffet. Our rooms where large, a little dated, beds where comfortable but could tell they where getting tired, bathroom was large but no door on the shower so water got all...

Travelled Jan 28th to February 5th, 2017. Flight Flight with Air Transat was cramped and the attendants unpleasant. Return slightly better, but the 10pm flight time was horrible as we couldn't eat at the main restaurant before leaving for the airport. Also, our bags were not prioritized as promised, so it took forever to get our bags. Check-in & Rooms...

The Hotel Pelicano (no longer Sol Pelicano) was the first hotel build on this small (3 by 28 km) limestone based island. Since the middle of 2016 it is operated by the Gran Caribe chain and has 307 rooms. As so many Cuban hotel it needs up-dating, but that requires money. The good part of this destination is the beautiful...

One of the most beautiful place in the world.. cayo largo is a paradise, sol pelicano is a good balance between confort and price. Unfortunately the food is not the best one but I think that is a common problem in the island. Trust me, with this view, the food even if is not tasty cannot be a problem! Ask...
