Avoid the Sol Cayo Santa Maria at all costs during the rainy season. There is a massive mosquito problem at this hotel and the rooms do not have mosquito nets. I can imagine people thinking I am one disgruntled traveller and talking extremes, but I have just arrived home as a medical evacuation I was so seriously affected by the...

Decided to go to this hotel on the strength of previous reviews, also was a very good price- or so we thought. The travel co. (Thomas Cook) should have paid us to go there, not us pay them. What started off as a 10 hour flight from Gatwick, changed to a 12 hour one when TC decided to go via...

This was a last minute holiday at a reduced price and I was very pleased with what we got for the money we paid - However, If I had paid full brochure price, I would have been disappointed compared to previous holidays. The staff were very friendly, and the hotel and grounds were fairly clean. The food was average -...
