The Sol Sirenas Coral is a 3 star resort and the general rule of thumb for Varadero and Cuba is that you don't go less than 4 stars. This resorts seems to get mixed reviews, some travelers will enjoy it while other will completely despise it. If you can afford to stay at a 4 star then definitely do so, but if on a limited budget this might be a good choice. If on a budget, also look at the Palma Real as it is a popular and good 3 star resort.
I very nervous flying Cubana airlines after so many bad reviews.my daughter and my husband and myself.let me tell you honestly it was fantastic they were on time very friendly and accommodating. The planes are not old. The flight was so smooth. We were given food for free and also allowed extra luggage if needed. we booked with Hola Sun and it was flawless. Well organized and comfortable transfer buses. the resort needs some work its not a 4 for sure but has potential the pools are gorgeous and the beach is spectacular. the staff don't speak much English but can get by, the food was okay nothing to talk about. Overall great experience for a first timer. will go back for the BEACH!!
Overall we had a nice time, but this is mostly because my husband and I are very open-minded and easy going and from the get-go decided that we would just make the best of it.For someone that's visited other resorts, especially, other Melia resorts, then the hotel/buffet wont be up to part. However; the beach is so beautiful that it outweighs some of the not so nice things you would see there (Def. not what you would expect to see at a "4 stars" hotel)(I'm actually a bit surprised that MELIA is not leaving up to their reputation in this place hiding behind the whole "oh well, this is Cuba"...we definitely paid just as much as if we had gone anywhere else in the world, so "oh well, this is Cuba" is N/A when it comes to the price.The "Tea Corner" was the best with very good coffee. And the pool was good for my daughter because it was low enough for her to play around - could have been a bit cleaner. Otherwise the country is beautiful and we enjoyed our time there (especially outside of the resort), we found the Casa Particular to be best.
On internet, the pictures showed images of the Coral resort (closed) and nowhere is mentioned that there are 2 resorts within one large resort - (Coral and Sol Sirenas). Also it does not mention that the Coral side was closed. When we booked, only the Coral side images were presented on the website which is obviously misleading. When we arrived at the resort (Sol Sirenas) I did not recognize the place that I bought tickets for. The place is beautiful, with great palm trees, vegetations and warm and clear ocean water. The room we stayed in , the AC unit was barely keeping up, the bathroom smelled like sewer, room smelled like old house, the doors were squeaking badly ( no oil to use for the doors it seems) , most of the electric outlets were so rusty that was hazardous to use ( see picture). The mini fridge was under the TV hidden in the furniture and when I saw it I thought is a piece of garbage stored there as it looked so rustydeal After 2 days my son discovered that he could enter the room without a card as the door could not lock properly. The service came fast and fixed the door but the following day the same problem reappeared but this time the batteries in the door expired. Called service again to replace the batteries. I felt like a contractor hired to deal with broken and old stuff...The customer service there is the worst I have encountered ever, you have to stay in line for everything, even for a juice, at least 10 min, the bartenders seems they do not notice you are waiting regardless of more or less people in line. They seem kind of sedated and do not care if they receive tips or not.. they do not have the notion of customer satisfaction for the service provided. The tourists there at that time do not know the meaning of staying in line, everybody cuts the line as they know it takes forever to receive anything if they stay in line. Getting a drink, juice or anything took a painfully long time. All services were slow and employees just disappear and return to work when they feel like..leaving customers waiting very long...The employees at the pool bar where non existent, the pool bar was useless as was nobody working to serve drinks most of the time. At over 30 degrees Celsius.... my kids were asking for juice and had to serve myself with juice that I could reach from the pool side.Thanks God for the snack bar where was the only place French fries existed.. This place has a problem with potatoes big time.The buffet at Sol Sirenas had problems with having not enough spoons, cups, and dishes , we had to hunt for those as well as for tables, The food was the same everyday, and if you came late no food refills for you...Could not eat a decent steak or a barbeque, or a green salad....the chicken was just bones and fat in a runny stew... The potatoes were in form of mashed potatoes made from powder...There were 2 coffee automatic machines that had to be fixed everyday.. and wait a long time for a watery coffee.After 3 days in the resort and several complains for this horrible service, finally we were asked if we need drinks with our meals.. and also more spoons were provided.. The overall impression was of poverty..The a la carte restaurants were better however, the portion sizes were too small.The pool table and the ping pong table closed at 7 pm, exactly when we wanted to go out and do something with the kids. Mosquitos were everywhere and my family was eaten alive regardless of using Off spray. The washrooms ran out of paper too soon, at evening/ night no paper for you.. Music was good, salsa dance lessons and evening entertainment was also good.This place has great potential, too bad the service provided was terrible. I want to relax during my vacation and not run after food, spoons, napkins, ketchup, etc or wait a lot in line for drinks and fight for tables or cups.. I will never return to this resort even it was free...
So far it was the most amazing holiday I have had. The beautiful sea and beach front of our hotel impressed me and I would definitely like to return to Cuba because of that. We had several choices for food and we could always find something we liked so we haven't starved.The animation shows could be better and what's according the room it was spacious, tidy and daily cleaned. I didn't have big expectations from Cuba so in general I was nicely surprised. ðŸ˜Š
What an amazing time we had at this Hotel.We stayed at the Sirenas side and the Cosmonautas.The room was beautiful and we had a great time being so close to the beautiful beach.We stayed for 7 days and the weather was really good.What more could we have asked for?On some days the water on the beach was flat and so beautiful .What made our trip so enjoyable was the people who work at this Hotel.The customer services people were amazing and special mention to Norleidys,Yolanda and Rossario.Also special mention to the staff at Cosmonautas Alexis,Karel and the rest who were truly amazing.Thanks guys for making our stay so special.We will continue to come to this beautiful place because of the wonderful people who work here.This trip was our 20+ visits to this Hotel.Thanks again Vernon & Monica L
