Stayed at Sol Cayo Largo between April 20-27 2012 to celebrate my birthday and it couldn't have been a nicer gift to myself.
I have read lots of reviews, mostly bad on this resort but I had a wonderful time here.
The food: I was expecting some pretty bad food and to come home 10 pounds lighter but it was actually quite decent. If you enjoy seafood and fish you will have no problem. You really need to know what is good and what is bad, but you will figure it out after the first day. Some foods were reheated and reserved but you can see that if they are serving it again.
I ate lobster twice, both excellent. However they charge you 20 CUC, not included. The pork is also excellent. They made roast turkey which was succulent and very tasty. The pastas are also very good.
For lunch, I highly recommend the barbecue in front of the beach at Ranchero.
For breakfast watch out for the juice lady, who doesn't let you pour your own juice. She'll tell you to get in line. And make sure you tell her how many glasses you want because she'll pour one for her and then give you your share.
Have coffee (espresso, cappuccino) at the bar which is much better than the restaurant and it is very good.
For drinks, the wine at Las Trinas was good. And the best bartender is at the pool bar.
Our room was clean and decent. The showers were rusted. The grounds could use an upgrade. And that is the only negative thing I will say.
The beach was absolutely SPECTACULAR!!! Went to Playa Paraiso and Playa Sirena. And both were great!!
Beware of the roaming cats. They do not bother people, in fact they are very friendly. They just want food from you.
I most likely would return. However I did wonder over to Sol Pelican which was right next door. Their grounds were much nicer and they had a nicer beach. I would be curious to stay over there on my next trip to Cayo Largo.
