We have just returned from 2 weeks at the Sol and had a good holiday. Some points made in previous posts are spot on, ie no glasses, food hit and miss on main courses although starters and sweets were ok and SOME staff, not all, not as friendly as we have become accustomed to on our many visits to Cuba. All that said our room was good, overlooking the crazy golf with a seaview, it was always cleaned to a good standard with towels and sheets changed as required not stained or ripped. I think rooms must differ as previous posts have mentioned a bath? We had a great bathroom more like a wetroom, no bath. The a la Cartes were not worth the visit as no atmosphere and the one on the beach was very blowy, I dont think they should allow meals there at night when the wind is up or they need to invest in some sort of blinds or windbreaks as you couldn't enjoy your meal. The grounds were beautiful as were the beaches both left and right and the pool and poolside very clean and well kept. Only watched one show which was Michael Jackson and that was very good . There were some singers in the main lobby bar who were good but just to 'cruise ship' for me I prefered the cuban bands they were fab. We visited Cayo Guillermo and Pillar with the beach at CG as good as Pillar, It was good to be able to use all inc at the Sol on CG and the Trypp CC where we had our lunch, both were very good. The icing on the cake was a trip to Havana organised by Roberto and Maru on the beach, although a long trip - 6 hours with a couple of stops - it was well worth it. We stayed overnight in an apartment and Maru never left our side he was our driver and tour guide and our chef cooking us a lovely meal at night and then took us out to the hotel Nacional for some entertainment. This hotel has the potential to be very good with its stunning grounds and surroundings but all of the negatives have been mentioned in many posts before and still nothing seems to change. We filled in our questionaire on leaving and had an email acknowledging this but only time will tell whether they take heed, it will be ashame if they don't.
