Our Opinion
Please note that hotel standards in Cuba tend to be lower than in other Sun Destinations. Unless travelers are familiar with the resort or Cuban hotels, we typically recommend that travelers book a minimum 4 star resort when traveling to Cuba.�

This beachfront hotel, features all the same great inclusions as the other Sol Melia all-inclusive properties. With such a wide variety of bars and restaurants, you'll never have to leave the resort! Ask about the free honeymoon and wedding packages available.

Location: Beachfront, 10 min drive to downtown Varadero, 30 min from the airport.

Friendly & Warm Stay

We were fortunate enough to stay in one of the bungalows on site during our vacation. Unfortunately, my husband needed medical assistance for his bronchitis half way through our week. The Doctor and Nurse on staff were amazing - so helpful, kind and knowledgeable. We were entirely at ease with them and once my husband started his antibiotics, he felt so much better. It's so reassuring to know that the Cuban Heath Care is top notch and the staff really care about their patients. Otherwise, we had a wonderful holiday and can't wait to go back again! The food was awesome, there were lots of choices & restaurants to dine in every day & night. The Maid service was exceptional each day. And as for the beach, it was so beautiful and relaxing.

Great Stay!

I stayed at the Sol Palmeras from June 6th to June 13th. It was my first time staying in Cuba so I didn't know what to expect but I went with 3 other girls who had been to Cuba several times and they said it was one of the best places to stay. The resort is very spacious and you never feel as if there are a lot of people unless you're in high volume areas such as the beach, the lobby bar or attending a show. Our room was located on the first floor and was a bit of a walk from the lobby but the beach and pool were very accessible. Our rooms were very well kept and cleaned daily- I would suggest if you want a new bottle to take the one they give you as they won't replace the water in the room if it's more than half full. The resort had a good mix of energy, and you really could choose if you wanted to indulge in the more exciting parts or to just relax. Families, older couples and young people all traverse the hotel so it kinda works for whatever you're looking for. It's also a 5-minute drive to town which was super convenient. The beach was stunning and massive! My absolute favourite part of the hotel was the staff. All the serving staff from the bartenders to the buffet servers were friendly and accommodating. The entertainers were absolutely incredible! Our favourites were Robin and Jose Angel. So sweet and made everyday super enjoyable. Jose Angel was by far the best dancer - make sure you ask him for a least one dance during your stay there. There are only two negative things I found during my stay. The first being the weather- I would highly recommend avoiding Cuba during June as it is their rainy season. We had gotten rained out two days in a row- but fortunately, the hotel was well equipped with activities to do inside but if you are vacating for the sunny beaches- I would suggest looking at dryer months. The second being was the food. The buffet wouldn't vary much too day to day but the restaurants were great if you could snag a reservation. There is a small island in the middle of the buffet that served the best Cuban food and we usually ate from there most days. Overall, very satisfied with my vacation and I would highly recommend this hotel.

Amazing time in Cuba for American Travelers

Our stay at Sol Palmeras was absolutely amazing. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming, the rooms and resort was beautiful and the variety of food was delicious. Rolando was very fun, had high energy, very accommodating and gave EXCELLENT customer service!! The nightly themed parties were an great addition to the resort atmosphere.I will definitely recommend this resort to other American travelers.

Amazing hotel.Lovely rooms Fantastic beach.Only thing for me that let it down was choice of food for evening meal in buffet.Never met a grumpy worker in the hotel.Everyone was so friendly and worked so hard.Entertainment every night,but the shows seemed to be a bit samey,having said that the entertainment staff were brilliant and had amazing energy and we always smiling.Food:The buffet was good for breakfast and lunch but didn't enjoy it for evening meal.Weird cuts of meat and fish.We booked the Chinese twice.It was very good and easy to walk to.We booked the Steak house twice,also very good.Didnt go to the Italian as people said it was not good,didn't go to the seafood restaurant either.Husband and son both had Birthdays while staying here and in both restaurants we received a cake with candle and a bottle of champagne.The beach and sea were the best I have ever been to.Sea floor just sand,sea like a warm bath.Kept clean too.The last night we paid extra for a lobster meal on the beach.Beware......we got eaten alive by mozzies !!!!!Little train takes you (free) to the little mall,about 10 mins.ATM machine there also I think a bank.Last thank you ...and the best goes to Idelmis and her team in the are the best!
