My husband and I and another couple went to this resort. For myself and my husband was our first time. For our friends it was their sixth time. We had a lot of fun, food was good, people were great. A special thanks to our bar tender/ waitress Jose Antonio, Sandra in the Mares lobby. Over all a very good...

I stayed here for a week with my friends and had never been more excited to go home. Worst resort in cuba out of four I have stayed in there. The food was all either undercooked or overcooked while there was never any space to sit at the buffet. The bartenders were rude unless you tipped and always got the...

From start to finish, this was a perfect vacation spot. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating, the food was excellent and the location was the stuff dreams are made of. The room was perfect and had an amazing view of the coast. I cannot recommend this resort enough. If you find yourself headed to this part of Cuba, stay...

Stayed here for a week in from 16th March 17. Hotel was average, clean but in need of attention. We stayed in the Mares side which was very noisy, so spent most of the time at the Luna side pool or on the beach. Buffet food was not great at all, none of it was hot or even warm enough,...

I spent the second week of March (2017) with my 7 year-old granddaughter. It was our first time in Cuba. The week was truly amazing -- sunshine, good service, fun activities. The Kids Club exceeded our expectations. My granddaughter was well supervised and delighted in all the activities from karaoke night, to horseback riding, beach party, ping pong ... The...

Stayed here in December and returned for a week in March. Upon arrival there was a large group ahead of us, but within half an hour, or less we were all checked through quickly by smiling, efficient staff. A great start to a good vacation. Stayed on the Luna side with a 3rd floor room in Building 6, quiet,with a...

I have wanted to go to this resort for a long time... since they don't allow 4 ppl to a room (even with kids), I didn't get to go until now. This hotel was supposedly amazing... in its day. I should have known that the years and the sea and the fact that Sol is a government owned and run...

Our family of three spent a week here in March 2017. We stayed on the quieter Luna side but took advantage of the entire resort - all within a 10 minute walk. We had a great experience in every restaurant, bar, and pool. The beach was absolutely lovely with snorkelling right off shore (we brought our own gear). I am...

Each time we have visited SRLM we have seen gradual improvements to the hotel: the rooms are slowly being renovated, the food is improving and hopefully by our next visit the washrooms on the Mares side will be renovated! But the hotels greatest asset are the staff. This is the reason why we return and I am sure why lots...
