Our Opinion

In a great central location, close to local shopping and nightlife. The Barcelo Solymar is a good choice for couples and singles looking for a lively vacation as there a few nightclubs within walking distance. A great beach and nice pool area. The rooms could use some updating. Merged with the Arenas Blancas Resort to become one resort complex with two sections. A good 4 star resort because of its location, pool and beach area.

Barcelo Solymar

Couples and families alike will experience an unforgettable holiday at the Barcelo Solymar. A wide variety of daytime activities await you at the beach or around the pool. Then relax and enjoy the nightly entertainment. As the first Barcelo hotel in Cuba, this property offers both hotel room and bungalow accomodations, and is within easy walking distance to the cafes and shops of the town of Varadero.

Location: Beachfront between the Arenas Blanca and Hotel International, 25 minutes from Juan Gualberto Gomez International Airport, 5 minutes to Varadero and 2 hours from Havana.
