Our OpinionThe 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 3.5 star resort.
Stayed in the Sirenas side and the rooms we dated (ok old) but clean. We heard lots of complaints about the Coral side rooms. The buffet was pretty boring. Ala cartes: Italian was good, Chinese wasn't very good. FOOD Rating 1.5 star. The grounds were nice, The bars were good, The beach was very nice. It was good for a cheap extended weekend getaway to get some SUN
We visited Sol Sirenas Coral for our 3rd time last January. We enjoyed it again. The staff there is special. They really make a difference. First, we arrived around 11:00 am and our rooms were ready so great start. Beach is beautiful and food is good, specially at the A La Carte Restaurants. Sure, the place is a bit old and need some renovations but slowly they are doing it. For the price we paid, i cannot complain. Really nice staff, always smiling. Even when they have to deal with drunk and arrogant clients. We saw a bunch of those the week we were there but the staff stayed professional and smiled and helped them still. Our room was always kept very clean. I would return there for sure.
Before our arrival I read the reviews here,and the least I could say that I was mortified what I will see and get. I was so stupid to believe everything that I read. It's not perfect,but you get everything,and maybe more for the money you're paying. We stayed there for 9 nights in the Sirenas part. The room was great and we had ocean(sea) view. It's the right size for 2 persons. The internet was poor. While we were there it didn't work for more than 48h. Sometimes it was slow,but they had the internet cards during our whole stay. The pool area was clean. The bars were good. However,they are really slow at the lobby bar. The beach should be cleaner,I got some small thing stuck to my feet on daily basis. The maid came every day. However,I noticed that she only made the beds,and emptied the trash can. The bed sheets were not changed while we stayed there. Food was good quality,however,it was the same. Nothing new. The omlettes for breakfast are amazing. And the best part about this hotel is their animation team. I mean they start in the morning. Aqua gym,dancing,they do stretching in the morning,pool parties. Those guys are the best. So if u have any hesitations whether to stay in this hotel or not. 100% yes. Everything best for the staff. Keep up with the good work.
On arrival reception were swift to deal booking us in but that was where the help ended. As our room was not ready we were told a porter would take our cases, we were left standing for 15 minutes and reception just ignored us. Finally when room was ready, the main reception left was out of order, but again reception did not inform us of this so we were left, along with other guests to carry cases up the stairs, only to find two days later another lift - might have been nice to be told about this.Rooms were ok and clean and a great view of the pool, just look a little tired and need of some TLC. Beds were the most uncomfortable I have ever slept in.We had hot water and good air con which was a positive.The tables in reception were dirty, marks still on from drinks from the night before. Grounds and beach were lovely and well maintained although pool did not look the cleanest with food floating.Food was bland, tasteless and the same for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the buffet area. Best meal was the Italian restaurant.Buffet service was hit and miss, plates, dishes and cutlery were often not available and often had to wait for drinks although quality of drinks was good.
The grounds and the location are lovely. Once you are past the FIRST lobby and you are golf-carted to another area - the shock begins. The front desk staff are survey at best. If the credit card machine is down 9this happens a lot) the expectation is to stand there and wait for hours. I am not so innocent a traveller, but this was down there. The 2 person elevator only worked sometimes and was super scarey.The rooms, 3rd world, communist, embargoed, I get that. How about soap for the grey towels and sheets.The staff within the hotel I found wonderful as a polite Canadian. Surprised at the level of rudeness from the tourists. Mainly South American, Mexican and Quebec. Very good buffet. A lot of families with super well behaved kids. Delightful.lovely pool for all.First time - 2 nights - great entertainment. Water exercise class and Dancing class for all to join in. A Professional ballet group dancing around the pool, with a minimum of 5 changes! Tremendous.Live 4 pièce band in the lobby at night.Off to Havana and excellent Airbnb for 9 days.Second time - 3 nights. Procedure at desk took 1.5 hours! Finally got into slightly better room. Okay the first night. And then the Gong Show happened. 3 bus loads of 20 somethings arrived drunk and ready to roar.The hotel completely catered to them. The drinks flowed. Music with amplifiers to shake your bones were turned up. AND THEN a bubble machine was turned on around the pool.Families and children exited quickly from the pool.People's clothes were coming off. Peeing and whatever in the pool. These people were barely able to walk.This is an all inclusive. The drinks were flowing.The next day, there was not a soul that would go near that pool. Several people complained and many more stated this was the worst place they had stayed in Cuba - these people had been 4 to 6 times in other resorts.SMOKING IS EVERYWHERE.
