Unfortunately, this hotel is losing popularity in my opinion. For a period that should be stocked, it was very quiet on the site, many empty bungalow.

Positive :

The always friendly staff, friendly, impeccable service.

Negative :

choice of buffet food which has lost compared to previous years. There are more air conditioning in the dining room. And despite all this, the servers still smiling despite the suffocating heat, they were warm, wet and continue to serve us with the greatest of pleasure

The hotel was not new, but the smiling people, good weather and paradise page have filled me.

Positive :

Floury sand, white to perfection. turquoise and hot water. Beautiful wildlife. smiling people. Nice atmosphere, but at the same time quiet.

Negative :

The quality of mattresses and pillows were not very good. By cons, in 2016, the pillows will be changed. Consider requesting a room on the top floor or you will have friends in your room, as there is a good day under the door. The defective toaster, but a new arrived in March 2016.

We had a package with 12 nights Caribe Sol this hotel, or from 24 January to 5 February. This is our 7th trip to Cuba, never in the same place. Transportation Air Cubana was excellent, we had in both directions 3 seats for us.

Positive :

We opted for a bungalow with sea view, worth the extra bit (# 2522). very large and clean room, newly renovated but we still have some work to do. Site not too big, perfect for people with restricted mobility (they have a suitable room in the hotel). A bottle of water every day, soap, shower gel, shampoo and body lotion available. Safety deposit box included. Huge balcony. The whole site is a no frills simplicity. Huge lobby with bar and it was nice to meet up with new friends. Older customers, many family. Buffet (lunch and dinner) large, clean, no air conditioning (which we should) airy with impeccable service. Lots of variety, sometimes there are gaps, but Cayo Largo is an island ravaitaillée by boat, so .... But you can still find something to eat, and it's good. For dinner there is a choice between the Ranchon which offers a magnificent view of the sea or the buffet by the pool, and generous with grilled pork, chicken, fish or chorrizo choice. Five bars, lobby, pool, Ranchon, beach and theater open at different times. The theater of cappuccino in the morning its excellent, and the small lobby sparkling perfect for cocktails. Beautiful beach on the right side of the resort (if you face the sea) mainly natural side. No trouble finding a palapa. The rest of it depends on the day (strong winds during our stay). Transportation for Playa Sirena is free if you take the shuttle, otherwise 2CUC per person taxi. We had bad comments against the new Italian complex vs the beach, but we experienced no animosity on this side. pools clean and plenty of chairs and palapas. The shows are excellent and deserve to stay up a little later! Massage therapist, Angelo, excellent. There is possibility to change money at the lobby or in the village to the bank, the rate is about the same

Negative :

Minor drawbacks: during wetter days, mosquitoes and sand flea, plan accordingly. There are actually small flies everywhere, but most of the food in the buffets are covered. He has a serious problems with hot water, 2 days 12 without hot water (lukewarm or downright cold). No water sports on site, but included Sirena beach. Not a lot of activities to do.

There are 4 things you should know about Cayo Largo Cuba 1-The wind direction influences the beaches (When I was there, there were a lot of waves behind the hotel but a beautiful beach to walk and tanned (dressed or naked). Playa Paraiso and Sirena are beautiful all the time but you have to take the bus to get there. At Olé Playa Blanca, this transport is free while other hotels chargait 5 pesos). 2-staff work 20 days on leave and 10 days (When I was there, the staff was towards the end of their 20 days so tired and not so friendly that even ca. The service was pretty mediocre and it is widely degraded when I stopped giving pesos for everything and for nothing. A waitress at the buffet looked at me even more towards the end and I had to go myself even supply to the fountain for beer.). To have a safe service, it takes about twenty pesos a day. 3-The island is by boat refueled every 2 weeks (more or less) (When I was there, the hotel was at the end of two weeks and waiting for the boat. There was almost nothing buffet (only the guys pasta was open, the pizza station was closed almost all the time), nothing in ranchon (only sandwichw) and morning, AC was hard. I'm not starved but very ordinary. Very complicated even to have a bottle of extra water for the room. 4-It is always nice to Cayo Largo. (even if Meteomedia ANNOUNCED storms, rain and all, I had a rain after noon but the rest very beautiful. A little cloud but nothing comparable to the predictions of Meteomedia. Regulars tell me that the storm was exceptional). No hot water in the room. The air conditioning worked very well. No more mosquitoes than elsewhere Cuba. The only request I made was' quiet corner '' but the hotel put all the guests next to each other and left empty completes sections because it 'was more' 'Conviennient' for the maids. Ordinary really. The shows are very good. Even surprising. The house band are a set of 9:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. and dance performances from 22:00 to 23:00. 6 musicians - 2 6 dancers and entertainers for 12 clients. Nightlife nonexistent. Me is that I wanted AC so perfect. Sunwing flight champagne service is a marketing joke. The service on Sunwing flights are very bad but it's pretty widespread in all airlines. Currently, the airport of Cayo Largo lost its certification for fuel so ALL flights to Cayo Largo undergo a stop (either outward or return) to Cayo Santa Clara thus more two hours. Sunwing and no service personnel during the time ADDITIONAL theft. Not a cat for 90 minutes gone in the plane. I had to ring / belabour for water, I had three ounces All service champagne. I stayed at Playa Olé Blanco Cayo Largo from January 9 to 16, 2016. I spent a lovely week in Cayo Largo but the hotel leaves to be desired. I not go with the children. Cayo Largo, it's really not the place for the family (except may be at Pelicano but frankly - go to Pesquero in Holguin with young children ages). If you are a couple (or single) and not want expensive, the Olé Playa Blanca could be an option but if not, while the Olé was empty, the other 2 hotels (Pelicano and Sol) was busier and buffets of the other 2 Verily hotels and frankly better.

Positive :

Beautiful sunny week despite Meteomedia forecasts Paraiso and Sirena beaches are VERY beautiful. The evening shows The free shuttle to the beaches. 4 wheel rentals.

Negative :

Buffet service with minimalist ordinary Pesos Pesos and bad without. No hot water maintenance-free Hotel which degrade No swimmable beach at the hotel pool of the hotel is really tough. Sunwing

I recommend this hotel to anyone, not very good food and lack of food every day not to go to the beach from the hotel, those who give good reviews is because it passes their week by bus go to another beach which is really wonderful except you have to pay for any hotel I choose not to always be on the outside .So if you are not OERS thoses range will be correct for you

Positive :

There is a very positive thing from the personal was always extremely friendly, I had my daughter sick person and public relations as well as the manager was always there for us to translate and then the person turns super MonRoyale friendly. The problèeme really comes from the wrong place and thoses dpuis hotel construction

Negative :

own food mediocre no beach on site pool and often evil green air conditioning only work half a room in Ps By the way, speaking of another person has all the hotel this week we run out of food
