Sol Cayo Largo

This property opened its door in December 2000. It's located on the western side of Playa Lindarena (the Hotels' beach). It's usually considered to be the best and most luxurious hotel in Cayo Largo. Rooms are distributed in two-story bungalows. Although it’s an hotel for everyone, it’s more adult-oriented because it doesn’t have a mini-club.
