Returned just under a week ago from an 11 night stay in the Sol Palmeras and 3 nights in Havana (see separate review of melia cohiba). I cannot really say anything bad about the hotel. Food was very good and you could always find something to eat due to the wide variety. Cocktails were delicious. The speciality restaurants were nice but apart from the Italian I think we enjoyed the buffet food more. Beautiful beach and sea. Did have to get up early most days to get a sunbed especially on the beach. Could do with having a few more there. My hairdryer kept braking in the room which was a little annoying when you were getting ready to go out but it didn't spoil our holiday. We met friends who were staying on the next floor up and they had nicer rooms, more up to date but again we had no complaints and our maid Mayra cleaned our room everyday and left us some lovely towel art. On that note, the staff are so hardworking and I would like to give a special thanks to Yulian and Robert. We waited a long time for this special holiday and it did not disappoint. We would definitely return and recommend to friends and family. Thank you Sol Palmeras for a wonderful and very memorable holiday
Great things about Sol Palmeras- location.....excellent fir close in snorkelling-food, great range and quality - friendly helpful staff - great grounds and amenities....we went running every day- free bikes .....easy to get to shopping centre or Vradero- buses cheap and frequent- great entertainment and range if bars - excellent range of interesting and affordable excursions Go to Havana by local bus ....and to the south to snorkel in the Caribbean Downside You've got to go home sometime
The Hotel is located at a perfect beach spot to spend time just sun bathing, go snorkling or go for a short walk at the ocean. The restaurants are really good for such a large number of rooms and the staff is mostly very friendly. The pool area is nice with the bar in the middle, although also the bar at the beach is a good spot - at night drinks are even better at the bars really good quality for all inclusive). The rooms are not at a modern level anymore, but clean and equipped with everything you need. We got fresh towels every day.
Spent a week in April. First time to this resort. Staff are great. Resort is very clean. Lots of options for everyone. Beach is great. Lots of Palapas and they are a bit close together but lots of shade overall. Several snack bars for lunch but I would recommend the daily bbq on the beach - fresh fish (rabirubbia) chicken, ribs, chorizo sausage and pans of freshly cooked paella (excellent). French fries and salad on the side. A la Carte restaurants are excellent and the buffet is good- also a bit crowded. Both levels of the lobby are smoke-free and bars are well stocked and well staffed. Nightly musical entertainment is also great. Pool is good. Washrooms are very clean and well maintained. Rooms are not that important for us but, again, well maintained and clean. Hats off to Tomeu Alcina, who we had previously met at Melia Las Antillas, and his staff. No wonder one of the top rated resorts in Varadero. Allison and Kevin Mossman.
