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

We went from December 26 to January 2 with Air Transat. Good company, brand new Boeing 737, left with a few minutes late we landed with 5 minutes early. By cons in Cayo Largo airport, it's always a mess and it's freezing! We go to the south for warmth, not to freeze at the airport ...

Positive :

The hotel is not new but there's a lot of painting and the room was very clean although the shower water was not hot. The staff at this hotel (our second time in 4 years) is really nice and very stable, so even after 4 years, many familiar faces. Some employees work there since opening 12 years ago! The food is OK, better than it was 4 years, eggs or omelettes every morning, grilled on BBQ lunch and evening buffet (or à la carte restaurant). Take the catamaran cruise for the sunset with dinner at lobster. It was one of the best excursions from my trips to Cuba (8)! The bus is free at this hotel to go to the beaches (and Siréna Paraïso) ... The buffet was magical and December 31 gargantuan: smoked salmon, crab, cheeses etc.

Negative :

Very strong waves that period therefore prudent for swimming. There were a drowned in SOL during our stay! Italian tourists are numerous and not always nice public beaches (Siréna and Paraïso). Many people at this time of year so forget the stairs naked on a deserted beach! The pools and whirlpool are not always very clean and it is salt water. The new pool bungalows is clean and ceramic but it is far from the site ...

Have met many people who were returning there for the x th time, saying that before the beach was amazing but for 2 years, it disappears if the wind rises. In two weeks, she was not there for 7 days. Had to go to other beaches, but it was worth it. Es will I go back? it will depend on the price

Positive :

The smiling staff, very clean rooms, water bottles every day, good buffets.

Negative :

The clarinet player EVERY NIGHT OF CR ... in the lobby. The beach disappearing, a lot of mosquitoes, so not able to go on the balcony after 17 hrs. I know it is not their fault but our $ 100. was worth only $ 68. CUC
