Positive :

Nice large site, beautiful beaches. You can go kayaking and pedal boating only if there are not too many waves. There is, against the hobby cat available at all times with an attendant. Several pools of different depths. We always ate at the buffet. We liked the restaurant a la carte Fontanella (Italy). The restaurant Los Flamencos near the beach is very popular with pizza and spaghetti. There are different "drinks" in every bar of the site. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The site is cleaned every day and every morning (before 7hres) there is a car that smokes the site to get rid of pests. The staff is very nice and smiling when you greet them. We activitées a catamaran and it was perfect.

Negative :

Lack of choice at the buffet. Creole a la carte restaurant very disappointing. No activity (like Volley Ball or Aqua Gym or Salsa) near the beach, all happening at the pool.

Nice big room. Breathtaking sea. Buffet very good though somewhat varied. Lots of vegetation.

Positive :

The personel was very kind to us (the movie). Many activities, beautiful site (vegetation), we eat pretty well and beautiful beach. We were a group of girls and we loved our trip despite the negatives.

Negative :

I'm not on my first trip, including my 4th to Cuba and the ground is not a 4 stars despite that Cuba must often remove a star. I do not like the negative comments are not based but several negative points are needed. Every night at midnight, more water. So when we think back to ensure you not wash. Rooms not clean, several bebittes I do not even want to know what it was. It smells horribly moisture, bring your perfume to not feel the wetness. Lack of towels every day in the rooms. Nothing to do around the hotel. The line is endless buffet for food. I could go back to this hotel but not for the site but to the ambience. AH yes! And he served us our drinks in a glass plaistique, as always ... but réutilisais by rinsing with water without soap ... I pogne a cold sore and I've never had ... by the way!

Positive :

Lush vegetation. Beach beautiful as always. Buffets and opportunity at every meal to appeal to the leaders for pasta, fish, cooked in front of us with our choice of ingredients. Courteous staff. and smiling. A small pizzeria near the beach that has been prueves! Chairs in quantity. In short, I am returning to the beauty, recreation etc.

Negative :

Just a wink to other travelers! If you want to eat the same thing at home, stay there then! If selling too hard, stay in your room! If the waves are too high, the Cubans are not even responsible for moods of the sea! If the music bothers you, stay in the quiet of your home! IF, IF and again IF: If you are "whiners" national do not go out to you and keep watching TV!

Positive :

Beautiful website: luxuriant.Mer réputation.Personnel worthy of his very courteous and smiling. I had problems with air conditioning and 10 minutes everything was settled. The food was good and counters for pasta, fish and other facts for our tastes were good too. In short, there are plenty of chairs, or space at the beach. I am returning. On site, there is a small puizzeria which would be the envy of many restaurateurs to home!

Negative :

No and I would like to add my grain of salt: People who are not satisfied with this complex: Well think about it: if you want to eat at home as well stay there! If you want a sea without waves and stay well Lamaison because nature is not yet controlled by the Cubans! If the music bothers you, well stay in the silence of your own home! If Cuban those smiles are not enough, well maybe that was not yours either!

Positive :

Well okay hotel considering the price paid at this time of year. The beach and sea are beautiful. The site is small, about 300 rooms, making it very intimate, for people who like it. The buffet was still good. Many amenities on the site itself such as bank counter, hair salon, corner store, internet room, coffee corner. Windy, so more bearable as the sole

Negative :

Although this hotel is not very old (2002 I think), some repairs could be made. Some let go (paint, tile around the pool, the beach chairs). Quite windy.

Positive :

Medium size hotel (not crowded) The beach is not crowded. Abundant vegetation on the site. Hot tub and large window in the bathroom with sea view (in the units "Oceanview") Safety box with electronic code in the room. Various shows.

Negative :

CAUTION: Sol Cayo Santa Maria Sol Cayo Largo Home ? impersonal and not very friendly. It does not feel welcome and as other reviewers pointed to the the staff are more interested in tips. Even the maid called her "regalo" for the only day we have not given him, as we were leaving that day! By the way, the room had very little storage. MAJOR IRRITATING: The dining room buffet is constantly smoky hoods because there not work. Result, after 10 minutes our clothes smell of frying and our eyes begin to weep, it is not good to dwell on it. The food is not very varied and is somewhat tasty. The staff is nonexistent smile uncoordinated and cares little for us several times, tired of waiting, we had to remove and clean ourselves a table at lunch. The dishes were often unwashed (greasy fingerprints). From the description of the hotel, a gym is available to us. A gym? What gym? 2 bikes and a "stepmaster" worn, rusted appliances 3 or 4 and 2 pairs of dumbbells .... We are told to get to the Melia for a gym for a better quality. Same for the rental car, scooter or bicycle, you have to go to the Melia. For water sports (also included in the package), it seemed to bother the sailing club instructors who were lounging in their palapas, reluctant to leave their equipment (while at other hotels catamarans, paddle boats, lasers and surfboards were available and already in the water). Obvious lack of chairs and palapas on the beach, and "Life Guard" is very rarely his observation post. Some people were robbed of their belongings on the beach. Be careful! On the site, when we were 5-7 invaded by three different sources of music that rivaled in volume, unbearable! And when asked to remedy the situation, every time we meet was nothing they could do. Only locally we have learned that once a week a party "Cuban" raged until 1:30 am preventing most clients to sleep again, they can not do anything ... Please note you are charged a fee for long distance, even if you do not get the call. At 3 pesos per minute, the invoice is salty, and again, they can not do anything ... In summary, the services of this hotel is uneven from one day to another and according to the staff present. This hotel does not deserve its 4 stars. We do not recommend it.

Positive :

Beautiful sea without algal opportunity to go snorkeling down the beach (beautiful fish). The buffet is excellent. This is the best place I've eaten in four trips to Cuba. A lot of diversity. The Los flammmenco is very good lunch to eat pasta and even pizza. There is Picua on the beach where they serve fences, calmards, hot dog, hamburger ... The fontanella (Italian) is also excellent. There 1h30 drive from the airport to the hotel. It happens in three small villages and the guide explains the specifics of chacuns, so still going fast enough. Very spacious and clean. Some had a few bugs in their room at the ground floor, but no problem on the 2nd floor. Staff very friendly and courteous.

Negative :

The beach sand is not typed, so it's almost impossible to make long walks on the beach.

We had a great week at this hotel! A beautiful site size: not too small, not too big, beautiful vegetation, the food was very good, a great beach, friendly staff and perfect weather! I could have stayed 2-3 days more!

Negative :

Some rooms are in urgent need of renovation! The pool was due for a spring cleaning ... 1:30 bus is a long time after 9 am and 3:20 airplane route ...
