tripadvisor Traveler Reviews

Cuba is great, Veradero is boring

As most hotels in Cuba, this hotel was old and looked like nothing has been updated since the early 80's, particularity the rooms and the restaurants. The food was also terrible, I could barely pick out anything to eat on the buffet. The drinks were also very watered down, I could barely drink those either. Overall, this resort was pretty expensive for what you got. However, the entertainment was pretty good, the hotel had activities going on all throughout the day and in the evening. The beach was beautiful and water sports were included. If you like staying at a the hotel for your whole vacation, you can stay in an all inclusive here in Veradero (it was quite boring). But, if you would like to see more of the country and immerse yourself into the culture I would recommend staying in Havana, there is a lot more to do and see. I really wish I had stayed in Havana, visited Trinidad and not even gone to Veradero.

Total disappointment

Waste of money. The room was OK. Food terrible, Wine was watered . Some of the waiters were under the influence while waiting on you. never again. But I would say that the beach was absolutely beautiful.

Great hotel! Families with babies this could be for you!

We are a family of 3 and we visited this hotel mid-May for 6 days. My son was 9 months old, so a cot was provided by the hotel.Our experience was very pleasant, if you're travelling with a child or infant, this is a great choice! The hotel has a relaxing and chilled feel to it, good entertainment, and child friendly facilities.-Room: At the beginning of our stay, we were checked into a room that was originally set for a family of four, i.e not for us and I didn't like it much since it had no views and it was far from the lift ( not helpful when you have a baby). However, we asked to have our room changed at the reception and they upgraded us to a business class room on the fourth floor for free. The room was clean, modern, and had great views to the sea and pool which felt like a completely different experience from the other room. So thank you guys for that! 4th floor is completely worth it!-Food: The food was good for Cuban hotels standards, there are 5 different restaurants, 3 of which we tried. We highly recommend trying the Marina Restaurant ( I hope I got the name right) and prebook it for more than once if you can.Staff: The staff in general were nice, except an odd few. Many were genuinely nice and professional, and were really helpful with providing food for my baby. They made him purees and fresh juices with boiled water made on the spot, couldn't ask for more really.. Food is always a concern when travelling with a baby and the staff made it easy.Tips: One negative observation was that we felt the need to tip every time to get a good table/service during busy hours. On one occasion our son was falling asleep during dinner and we had to rush to the room, and that one waiter that we've been tipping every meal chased us out! He didn't ask for it, but it was very very obvious. While we understand that these waiters probably live on tips (which is why we were tipping every meal), it felt a bit too much! But that was the only negative thing I could say, and it has more to do with the individual rather than the hotel.-Pool and Beach: The pool and the beach were lovely, clean, and the entertainment was good. No complaints whatsoever.Overall, we had a great experience.. it was so good we extended our stay! highly recommend :)

Nice hotel and people and magnific beach

We've been at the Sol Palmeras resort for our annual 2 weeks beach and sun vacation. We were for the 7nth time in a row at this resort that we adore.They welcomed us like we were family. Nice hotel, good food (in need for more choices in fruits, but the mango is delicious) and the magnificent beach of Varadero. The beach is long, wide and clean with many palapas for shade, smooth golden sand and warm crystal clear blue water. The hotel is not a new one and it is in need of renovation, but with each year passing by we saw improvement in the lobby, in the daily activities, at the pool, bars and beach, etc.). We always stay in the bungalows section that I find it very appropriate for families with kids and they can play outside the bungalow and discover the tropical vegetation and lizards. Also, the bungalows are bigger than the standard rooms. It is like our second home for the summer vacation. The hotel staff is very nice and we would like to say many thanks to our friend for many years now Wilber and also to our dear clown Colorin - we never missed a show and our 2 boys (9 and 6 years old) love him a lot along with his nice show for the kids. They continue singing every day at home the Argentinian song of Chu Chu Ah - Compania! Once again many thanks for the beautiful vacation and unforgettable memories that we are building at the Sol Palmeras resort year after year. Love you Sol Palmeras, keep going with the improvements and we hope we'll see again next year!
