Me and my wife went to Sol Pelicano in March of this year and we were impressed by this hotel !
First thing is the 4.5 min bus ride to the hotel ( the shortest bus ride we had was 40 mins), I actually timed it ! We paid 950.00 $ cad per person wich is decent for Cuba in March.
ARRIVAL : The check-in was a little messy since all 5 buses came from the airport at the same time so we can't really complain it would be the same anywhere with 250 person cheking at the same time.
ROOMS : We had a regular room gardeview but well located as you can see in my pictures. The rooms have a nice size and all of them have a balcony. The room was super clean and spotless everyday.
FOOD : Amazing ! Yes you read correctly, this place has a 50% occupancy from Italians and this shows in the food. The chef is Italian and very good. We enjoyed ALL of our dinners ( Buffet or A la Carte). My wife took a " Filet Mignon " and it was tender and cooked to perfection ! One night they did a Rosted pork ( see pictures) again absolutly fabulous. Don't get me wrong you get lobster, shrimps, scampies and champagne every night, but you have one of the best cuisine Cuba can offer.
ANIMATION : The crew is fantastic. The only down side is that half of them HAVE TO entertain the Italians and speak mostly Italian and very little english. The Cuban staff is super energetic and won't over bug you to play but if you start paticipating you will have even more fun.
BEACHE : The hotel beacheis short but clean. The water is clear but when we were there we got a few red flags. You have to take the shuittle to Las Sirenas, it is a public beach about 20 min away from the hotel and it is amazing ! (see pictures)
So Overwal it was an amazing experience and I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Cuba.
