[quote=@jeweles21]We’ve narrowed it down to Cayo Largo for our trip in May.
Can’t decide between Sol Pelicano, Cayo Largo or Sol, Cayo Largo.
The price difference between the 2 is very little, so not an issue.
We know that the beach, location will be the same. If you had to pick between the 2 based on the actual hotel, staff, food, which one would you pick?
In my opinion, the biggest difference between the two resorts has more to do with the atmosphere: it’s definitely livelier at the Pelicano, the Sol is more quiet and laid-back.
Personally, I prefer the buffet at the Pelicano, not only because of the food, but also because it’s air-conditioned (the Sol’s buffet is open air) and I prefer AC in the evening because mosquitoes love me!! It can also be pretty hot in May, so you might want to keep that in mind. I was at the Sol Club in June and found it pretty darn hot in the buffet at night. Only thing missing at the Pelicano’s buffet (unless it has changed recently) is a station for flambéed desserts… the ones at the Sol Club are really good!
The rooms are a bit nicer at the Sol, but the ones at the Pelicano are still decent, especially ocean views.
The staff is great at both places, you can’t go wrong in that regard.
Another difference is that the Sol has a gym, the Pelicano does not.
Don’t hesitate to ask more specific questions and do keep us posted on your decision!
