Our Opinion

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.


Overview
Sol Melia combined the Sol Sirenas and the Sol Coral hotels together to create one impressive resort. Just 3 kilometres from downtown Varadero and 500 metres from the 18-hole championship golf course. For a touch of European flair, sample the wide variety of dining and entertainment options, which include an Italian pizzeria and Chinese restaurant. A great choice for families with the Baby club, plus food included 24 hours a day too.

Location: On Varadero Beach, Beachfront, 5 minutes to downtown, 30 minutes from the airport.

Sun ...Beach and fun! Cuba si!

Stayed April 28-May 5th 2017 @ Sirenas site,after reading all the mixed reviews glad to set aside all the negative review's and consider all the good stuff and experience what Cuba has to offer! (Knowledge about the country, culture and history always helps) Glad we made the right choice with Sol Sirenas taking in consideration as 3star, as we heard stories of other couples on our way back that were on 4 stars that had bad experince and worse lost belongings. Yes it has its flaws but again for a 3 star it has lots to offer. Check in was pretty fast for us, they honored our request to have our rooms close together and on Sirenas site. ( Yes they have a working elevator) The Beach always 5 Stars :Clean, calm and always safe! Relax or take advantage of the available activities."Shout out "to Animacion*staff hardwork getting tourist involved in fun activities right at the beach.*Bring travel mugs, Do not leave your towel on beach chair( if u want toreserve spot bring old sarong tie Beach bar kept us hydrated with mojito and much more and fresh young coconut!Facilities:Hotel room: No complaints, we only requested to have it clean once, since we only use to sleep and freshen up.Restaurant: Ala Cartes Italian, Cuban, Mexican and Asian, pretty good for 3 Star.*Book your dinner earlier, then you can always go the Buffets! Non stop Grilled Steaks, Porkchops and Fish. Sirenas buffet and Cuban by the beach buffet, seafood and paella was just icing on the cake.*Leave $$$ on your table regardless,(the pot goes to everyone, waitstaff to the kitchen staff) Bars: Doesn't hurt to TIP$$$ on your first night, your set for your whole stay...simple appreciation! ( for favor and gracias)Nightly entertainment: Diffrerent entertaining shows everynight and it continues to Havana Cafe.The 24 hour Snack Bar : Hardest working staff by far to put up with drunks and rude unrully tourist. Definitely will recommend and be back to Sol Sirenas .TiPs**Come on time for lunch and dinner, Funny to see take out in Buffets.There are Families that brings bags and bags of food for take out... Good Idea ! why not better than ending up in waste.*Beach towels required $15 CUC if you loose it there goes your deposit.( 1 of our towel was taken by local day trip guest, we did not want to cause trouble for them so we let it be. (Witnessed by a another tourist that informed us)*Bring Single US$ currency for TIPS , Hotel runs out of changes for CUC and Bank dont give small Bills.*2$CUC for 1hr of internet works on lobby area.*Bring package of ketchups, snack and nicknacks.

Vacation May 2017

I came to this hotel for a cheap vacation with beautiful beaches. It is my 12th time in Cuba, so i already knew what to expect.The beach is very clean, always have chairs available with palapas. The beach bar is unfortunately closed. There is a 5 min walk to the pool bar from the beach. Beach towels are always available. The buffet is in the Sirenas building and our room is in the corales building so we have 10 minutes for food.the food is Cuba, average but always find something fresh and decent to eat. If you have mobility problems, I would not recommend because it is far distances from everything. Our room was in the coral building, needs to be renovated because it is old, but very clean, the cleaning lady did a great job every day and we had fresh towels. The air conditioning also worked well. Our toilet blocked, but the staff was quick to repair it. The staff is all very friendly and ready to help out whenever they can. Overall, for a family with teenagers who was looking for a nice clean place to enjoy the beautiful beaches of Varadero, I would recommend this clean and affordable hotel. It has everything you need and great staff for a reasonable price. I would come back anytime.

A little disappointed

We have been planning this trip for over 6 months. We first went to Havana which was amazing as well as tiring as we walked everywhere. Havana was the highlight of the whole trip!. Absolutely amazing. We stayed there 5 days. We were looking forward to going to Varadero and relax. On arrival we had to wait for one hour and twenty minutes to be served at the reception. This was really really bad as the service could have not been any slower. Finally it was our turn!. Besides booking the Cosmonauts accommodation which was the very top of all options with "all the trimmings" we were told that our room was not available as the previous guests decided to stay longer. This came as a shock to both and we got very upset. The hotel offered us to stay at a Junior suite and a very small discount of not more than 28 pounds. We were very tired and just needed to relax and this was not helping. The junior suite was located at the ground level right in front of the public swimming pool. You could not leave your windows opened, curtains had to be closed if you wanted some privacy. There was also a pool of water on the floor at the entrance from the air conditioning which I just cleaned myself. This room was spaces and had a jacuzzi, that was good. We were transfer to our booked Cosmonauts accommodation the day after. We had to again check out in order to check in. With luggage and everything of course!. We waste a day really and we only were able to rest once you were at our room the second day. The only problem is that on the cosmonauts accommodation the check out/in is at 15:00 so.......it really was a day wasted for us.Finally when we got to our room ( after being cleaned ) it was near 16:00 o'clock. I felt happier straight away as this is what I booked. The views were great and the room was truly beautiful. The problem was the really bad smell coming from the toilet. We had to keep the door close. We left the fan on at all times in the toilet. It was a waste pipe smell. We also experienced a blockage in the sink. As well as being locked outside and maintenance guy having to come and fix the issue with the lock. The cleaner didn't clean at all on one specific day. She said " she didn't have the key". Internet was very bad. We purchased a couple of cards ( as it was not included!) and still wasn't working. The jacuzzi at the cosmonauts was not working either.Facilities in general throughout the result needed an uplift!. You could see. A couple of buildings were falling in pieces. One of the pubs/bar as well as the restaurant was closed.Not very impressed at all. Not what we were expecting. Certainly not what we paid for. However if I have to be fair in here the staff were truly lovely. They made the difference for us. Those guys that work at the cosmonauts are sweet and they truly did their best to accommodate our needs. I remember them all!The beach was also very good, shame the weather was not so good but still we enjoyed the sun and managed to finally relax.I would definitely go back but to a different resort. Hope this review helps!

The worst place ever.

Even worse than the $1-hostel with walls covered in mould I had the pleasure of staying at for 1 night in Cambodia.I don't even know where to begin. Service is a disgrace. Check-in was painfully slow. Even though it's supposed to be all-inclusive, some of the staff, e.g. the guy manning the coconut bar, refused to be off any service unless you put a "suitable" (i.e. large) tip in the tip jar. I had booked the place specifically because they advertised a scuba diving center onsite. Such a center doesn't exist. When I found a center in town which I had to call, staff at the reception desk refused to make the call for me and sent me across the large park to the other building. There I had to register with a phone booth, from which I had to call the operator (a guy sitting at a table in front of the 2 booths) who was then supposed to put me through. It took him 3 tries because he kept dialing the wrong number. By the time I finally managed to speak to the dive shop, I had missed the deadline. To add insult to injury, the hotel charged me $5 per call, even for the ones the operator had bungled and even though all the casas I'd stayed at previously hadn't had any issues calling all over the country to arrange everything for me. Someone even mentioned national calls were generally free.The room was shabby, worn-down and disgusting. The lever to turn the shower on/off suddenly fell off​ in the middle of a shower and I had to use a spoon to fiddle around in the mechanics and turn the water off again. When I wanted to inform reception/housekeeping (the phone in my room was broken, so I had to walk all the way down) I was sent to the "complaints center". I mean, seriously, if your hotel needs a whole complaints CENTER, you should admit you have serious issues. Anyway, I told them my shower was broken and they promised to send someone to fix it. Surprise - it wasn't fixed in all the time I was there. The towels were full of stains.The food: ugh! Revolting, revolting, revolting! And as if the food as such wasn't bad enough, they didn't have enough serving spoons on the buffet tables, so lots of guests would just use their bare hands or their (used!) cutlery to move food from the platters to their plates. Cutlery in general was very limited. If you didn't show up within half an hour of the restaurants' opening, you had to hunt down your own knife, fork, and spoon and hold on to them for dear life. If only the cocktails had been imbibable, but they couldn't even make a decent piña colada.For ~180€/night I would at least have expected basic hygienic standards and decent quality. Instead, I had to suffer through a nightmare. Each and every casa particular I stayed at for only 20€/night had a much higher standard and much better, more attentive service.I wanted to spend my final days on Cuba relaxing in a nice resort. I had booked directly through Melía, since I thought (until then) that Melía stood for high quality accommodations. Little did I know the Sol Sirenas Coral would nearly ruin my whole vacation for me.Stay far, far away!

Very nice week at the Sol Sirenas Coral

Reading all the reviews gets confusing with all the contradictory reports of often the same resort on the same week! I can only give you an account of my experience and it was a very nice getaway for a Canadian in the first week of February 2017!I found the reception was quick and knowledgeable. We ended up on the louder side of the resort (the one with the bridge and stream in the front lobby in the publicity pics) but we got rooms far away from the main lobby as we had small kids in our party and we had no noise problems.Our rooms (all 3 of them) were clean and were cleaned regularly and well. A special thanks goes out to our chamber maid Elsic Banera who regularly made animals out of towels and gave special attention to the 3 kids in our group. She was always smiling and indeed ALL the staff were very pleasant and accommodating. I will say that the flusher on our toilet did not consistently work well (enough water was not always released but a couple of cups of water in the top of the tank fixed it when it did not work. Did I lose it and say the trip is crap? Of course not. Don't sweat the small things and be thankful to be on vacation when so many others can't!) Of course I see how hard they worked and their multiple roles so I go out of my way to talk to them and ask about their life. What an amazing experience to see someone have a real conversation with you when you take a little time out of your vacationing to connect with someone!The pools were great, swim up bar service was excellent...I think her name was Olga was very kind to us.The Food: This seems to be the only reason some people go on vacation...to gorge themselves into a food stupor that can only be remedied by a 4 hour nap by the beach! Overall I did not have a problem with the food... nor did the 3 kids under the age of 10 with us. They did not eat everything (nor did I!) but everyone found good things to eat. As the week wore on you could see things become unavailable from the menus and at the snack bar near the pools. But all of a sudden it seems a shipment of food came in midweek and boom! Bounty once again. When you consider the cost to stay there, and the resort feeding you 3-5 times a day, it does not leave a lot of money for them to do it with! I totally appreciated the creative lengths the chefs went to to make a meal with what they had. Yes there was a lot of seafood meals but they had LOTS of other things to eat so you'll have a good time. Again, if all you want are hamburgers, hotdogs, fries and steak, stay home! I'm sure there's a McDonalds that knows you by name. The a la carte restaurants were generally okay, people had varying experiences over the week but I say give them a try. The beach! Fantastic! The water was warm and calm for most of the week. It was pleasant enough for the kiddies to play in and we all had a blast there. I can say, having just come back from Hawaii, the water was better in Cuba believe it or not! At least from a swimming point of view. Many places in Maui and Kauai the waves are too high to go in, especially for little kids! So, Cuba rocks! (and we are still paying for Hawaii!). The entertainment we had at night was very good at times, disappointing at others as they did not perform every night and sometimes the show was more of just some of the dancers fooling around at the bar. But, when they had a rehearsed show, they were very good!Overall we had a very nice time and as this was our second time, the experience was consistent with our first time.
