Arrived on Nov.9th 2013 to lots of wind but the staff were very friendly and the beach was so nice!
White sand, beautiful blue water and a 7 minute (or less) drive to Pilar Beach - a must see and only $5.00 cab ride from the resort - Dont take the bus! - its long and annoying since it stops at each resort! waste of valuable beach time :)
* this resort is small and cozy since you see the same people all the time
* food is minimal but okay for cuban resort food (just okay but who cares in Cuba??)
^ looking for food? try going to their sister resort at Tryp Cayo Coco - much larger and you can spend the day there for free - the bus takes you there from the resort! - they have more food since they can afford it ... BUT "Sol's" beach is more private and the larger than life atmosphere isnt for everyone..
* the Staff were very friendly - and of course a tip goes a long way!
* Stay close to the pool since this resort is very wide - not long.. being close to the middle is best (not noisy i promise) since being in the 1200's or 100's is just too far! tons of walking so we switched rooms! (They were nice about this)
It's a good getaway for some sun and relaxation! :D Lots of British people and English Canadians so it was always a jolly fun time! :D
PS - bring bug spray..
