Dont usually choose all inclusive but worked out well with no cold salads left to go warm and multiply bugs! Great choice of precooked and cooked on demand. Found the A La Carte restaurants disappointing ( Italian had the nicest ambience but the coldest Lasagne!) and the minigolf was very poor on the outskirts of the resort only to get... More

This resort is average at most. Pros: Very nice beach and ocean. Plenty of palapas and beach chairs. We had no problem finding palapa and beach chairs even at 11 am. Beach bar is ok, nothing special, they use very small plasctic cups for drinks which is very inconvenient because ice will melt in minutes and by the time you... More

Myself and my family visited Sol Palmeras for 10 days and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! A 2 hour coach ride away from Havana, but do note that there is an airport in Varadero also that some airlines fly in to. We were impressed by the hotel as it was kept clean throughout. Yes, the rooms are a little tired... More

We have just returned from a week in sunny Varadero. After doing our research and based on Tripadvisor reviews, my husband and I decided to stay at Sol Palmeros. We were very happy with our choice.

Me and my husband have just returned from another fantastic holiday visiting this hotel. This is our 3rd trip to the Sol Palmeras and as usual everything was just perfect.

This hotel was okay. The staff was very friendly and deserves a 10+. One waiter, Frank, definitely went the extra mile for us. A small tip is very appreciated. Winter is ant season in Cuba, so whenever we left food in our rooms it would get covered in ants. Overall, the sleep quality was very good The hotel was clean,... More

This is a good hotel but certainly not a great one, it's best feature being it's beach. Our stay here got off to a bad start thanks mostly to Sunwing holidays, (who I have complained to separately), but was exasperated by the Sol Palmeras. We had an overnight flight down from Calgary which left around 9pm and landed in Varadero... More
