If you are looking for a HUGE resort with all-in F&B, a nice beach, lots of people and don't mind to wait a bit for the day to day activities, you are all set. I am not this type of traveler and think Cuba has more to offer than "Club med style resorts" so I did not feel quite comfortable... More

The Sol Palmeras is a fantastic hotel. Me and my partner stayed for 2 weeks and absolutely loved it. Initially check in was a bit hectic and all over the place but this was due to the influx of people at the reception as we got to the hotel- all of the Thomas Cook travellers were then taken into a...

Me and my Fiance have just returned from 2 weeks in Sol Palmeras in August 2014 and I have to say, this is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Having read the reviews before hand, I was a little apprehensive as they were very mixed, but please don't listen to the bad reviews. Everything about it... More

Our first trip ever to Varadero, Cuba was a memorable one that will last for some time. Travelled with my wife and my 4 year old boy in a blistering August heat. Arriving at the front desk was kinda chaotic with other travellers checking in but once greeted by the front desk lady it was quick and smooth. Our first... More

Me and my partner stayed here for 2 weeks in July/August and absolutly loved it! Beach was beautiful and the pool area was just as nice. Our room was in the main hotel and was cleaned every day by our extremely friendly maid. I am a very picky eater but still managed to find something to eat everyday, yes it... More

I spent a week at this hotel in June, it lives up to it's 4 star rating; The buffett was huge and had a variety of food that everybody could enjoy, the beach was awesome, the surroundings seemed to be a bit dated, but none the less the rooms were clean and comfortable. Everything was laid out perfectly, not a... More

My husband and I were in Cuba at Sol Palmeras from June 4 to June 21st. In all honesty I can say we had a blast. From the "almost on the beach" bungalow, to food at the buffet and a la carte restaurants, and everything in between. We have arrived at the hotel in the afternoon and we didn t... More

I have heard great things about this place from friends and being a single dad it is a very rare chance for me to get away and heading here Aug 29, I hope to have a good and relaxing time. I asked my travel agent for a clean, quality fun place :-)
