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.
We were there April 10 -20/17. I stayed again in the Cosmo building, my son and 2 grandkids (9 yr old boy and 13 yr old girl) in the Coral section. Thanks to all at the Coral reception who helped us with their upgrade to a Jr suite in a super area! We were all treated like royalty. It was a Cuban school holiday during our time there, so lots of staff doubling up and trading shifts to have time off with their own families. Busy it was and my son and grandkids found out VERY quickly how far a smile and simple manners went. No hurry makes a pleasant and rewarding vacation along with the attempt at Spanish (mangled as it was)! I downloaded Google translate onto my tablet this time and it was a great hit with the staff and my kids. My son had a note exchange going with his maid which was hilarious because there really are limits to the translator but it did get everyone's point across with apologies for the words it skips. He kept the notes to show his wife once he was home and I know darn well they were a treasure for him to bring home. My maid and the staff at the Cosmo building had a great time with it and we were better able to have a discussion and learn new words at the same time. I would know like to sincerely thank the staff at the Cosmo building for allowing my son and grandchildren to join me for a birthday lunch in the Breezeway. The kids were warned by dad and I both that it was an adults only building ( Level service) and a privilege to be allowed so they HAD to be adults with good manners to attend. Thank you very very much! As well I would like to thank them for the prawns and the arrangements for my grandsons first Cuban fishing trip. All the way to the beach in front of the Cosmo building LOL. He caught two good size snappers and my son was thrilled for him.We were thrilled to receive personal gifts from "our server" at the Coral buffet. I also received a conch shell from my maid. How thoughtful you all were and made a lasting impression on my grandchildren and my son who now understand why Cuba is so special for me. The grandkids are already saving for another trip! I will see you again October 11!
I would say don't go to this place with high expectations and you'll be fine. Some tips= bring your own toilet paper and towels. If your staying on the sol sirenas side it will seem like you have no hot water sometimes you need to run it for like 5 mins or more.Staff was pretty friendly. The coral side is more run down but that's where everyone parties. The sol sirenas side is a little more quiet. If you have little ones in strollers just ask to be switched to the sol sirenas side. The elevator is really bad in the coral side and the back side has many levels and no ramps that's you can go up or down. The property is quite large and has many building on it. All in disrepair or condemned. Looks like they are starting to renovate them now. I loved that it was close to downtown Varadero. Think it would be an awesome place if they took better care of it
Stayed here only one night. There are two separate hotels here: Sirenas and Coral. The check ins are separate and since the name is combined you don't know where to go when you arrive. We were at the Coral site. Pool deck/concrete was cracked and had been painted too long ago. Layout is odd and seemingly lacks reason with buildings at weird angles looking inward and many buildings with poor views. My room looked over a rooftop to a portion of the pool. There are some houses on property that can be rented out but looked almost like staff housing. Buffet was just ok. Plenty of food. Long lines for the grill The beach is the best part of the resort. Excellent sandy beach going a fair way out. Rooms are odd. My room had a large jacuzzi tub in the middle of the room and shower that was too small. The TV was not usable -- all channels had heavy static.
We stayed at the Sol Sirenas Coral (on the Coral side) in Varadero Cuba. I keep going back because I have such a good time…. Good value for the Canadian dollar! I love my beach walks - 5 star. I love the live dance shows at night - such amazing talent and beautiful, creative performances. I love to dance so my favourite part of my vacation is the dance classes both on the beach at noon and at 5:00 on the shady stage at the Sirenas. I enjoyed the animation team. They made every event, dance party at night and even ping pong with my husband so much fun!!!! “Equipo animación del Sirenas es la mejor porque trabajan: Lisbey, Amed, Renier, Leyra, Ainesey, Odlanier Y el jefe de animacion Otto.” And I’m learning Spanish!We loved eating at the buffet and the a la carte restaurants, (Italian, Mexican and Cuban), in the evening, the Ranchon Playa restaurant at 1:00 for lunch every day. Delicious! The service is wonderful. The coffee at the Tea Corner at the Coral is the BEST in the World!I always get a massage from Ernesto at the Spa. – very healing. (25 pesos).We had never been there so late in the season before – end of March-beginning of April. The ocean was warm and beautiful for swimming. I walk the stairs, so the slow elevator doesn’t bother me. I take it for my suitcase on the way in and the way out. I will go back with friends in December when the snow falls at home.
We visited the Solar Sirenas the first week of April. Booked the trip last minute so got a really good deal. 4 adults staying in the Coral side of the resort. Food was actually very good with plenty to choose from each meal. Resort is undergoing some renovations to add more rooms closers to the beach as well. Coral side is a bit of a party zone but not to the point that it was overbearing. 10 minute cab ride to the centre of town. Just as cheap as taking the all day bus and definitely quicker. Would go again for sure.
