We went to this hotel in April 2011 with our 2 young kids, this was our first time in the Carribean. We had a very pleasant stay at the Sol!
We arrived at night at around 10 p.m. There was no wait at the desk so we could quickly get our room. Everything was quick and people were very nice.
We were in the room 2130 and it was very clean and comfortable. I think this was one of the refurbished room as the bathroom was brand new. I can say the room was above my expectations. Also it was very quiet, we were in front of the mini putt on ground floor (at our request, we wanted to avoid stairs with our yound children). Please note: there is no clock in the rooms, so bring your watch!
Restaurants and Bars:
There is 1 buffet, 1 snack bar and some à-la-carte restaurants. I had read some bad reviews saying that the food was not too good in Cuba so I went there with a low expectation, and I must say I was pleasantly surprised! The food is very good and there is always someting new. At the buffet you can eat what is offered or go to one of the 3 counters where you can have something cooked in front of you (bergers, meat-vegetable rice, pizza, pasta, …). The snack bar at the buffet is very good too, at one moment of the day there is churros offered. There was always ketchup, mustard, VH, Tabasco (and more) sauces availiable. We did not try any à-la-carte restaurants.
Very nice!! There is 2 beaches, one is absolutely beautifull and perfect to go with yound children (no big waves, no deep water). The other beach is the one in front of the hotel and has been damaged by erosion, but still we found it interesting anyway. The waves are bigger there and water gets deep quickly. Pools are very nice also: the pool for kids is just perfect and very safe. You will always have a place to sit, there is always more chairs than clients!
Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
As we were with our kids we did not buy any all-day excursions, but we did go on the glass bottom boat. This was really great, about 2½ hours long, and we had the chance to do scuba diving there. Amazing! There is the option to visit the Cayo Coco island also, or go to the cities of Moron or Ciego de Avila. We did not do any of it this time, but we will certainly go back in Cayo Coco!
