I hear that some of the regulars at the now almost empty due to renovations Sol are complaining about people from the Melia and beyond using the CO beach at the SOL and some of the amenities. We were once regulars at the SOL but until they finish the renos, its the Melia for us.
I thought at one time, there was a sharing agreement, on a descending scale, for all 3 of the Melia resorts Las Dunas, Melia and Sol. This past November, we were never refused service at the Sol while sporting Melia bracelets and we noticed this on previous visits when we DID stay at the Sol. I hear the regulars want to start a campaign with the Sol management to refuse service to outsiders and possibly restrict the access to the beach loungers and palapas I get it If push comes to shove, has anyone ever approached the Melia to see if a CO section could be set up near there?
There is a very large section of the Melia beach to the west of the nautical centre and into the Sol area that is unused and basically abandoned. It has been that way for years and years! Can we go rogue and start it up if a big enough group, on a particular week, just does it?
Who would it hurt? That section of the beach is huge and is set back quite far from the sea It works for Cayo Largo with each hotel having a CO section I heard a rumor that one CSM hotel is turning a blind eye to the fact that there is a CO crowd on a section of beach farther to the east hotel installations? Me and my spouse went twice at the Sol before switching to the MBV for our naturist vacation.
Everyone I spoke about Cayo Largo either come back with tales that the beach has been eroded by the tides or the Sargassum seaweed is covering the beaches and it stinks. I say good luck to those who wish to initiate a movement at the other resorts at CSM but the safer bet remains the MBV now that topless is allowed around the pools. There is a sign posted at the Sol on the west side of that beach - or at least there was in January of this past year, when my wife took a picture of it.
It was a good distance before the first palapas. Playa Nudista. Seems pretty clear to me. And there was also a server from the hotel taking drink orders from those on that section of the beach. The server was fully clothed. Seems clear to me too. If you don't read the sign oh well if you are offended by what you see it is your own fault.
Curious was the server male or female. A naked female server might not be a horrible idea. When we were at the IE years ago when it was adults only, went for a walk over to the CO section There was a young, outgoing group when we ere there. As a nudist couple we do not want to offend anyone by having them come upon us unexpectedly.
If they ever decided to have a CO beach I would definitely book there as it is a wonderful resort. Cayo Santa Maria. Profile JOIN. Log in to get trip updates and message other travelers.
