This hotel was so far the best one that I have stayed at on my three visits to Varadero. Front desk personnel were friendly and helpful.

We spent a week in Varadero at Sol Palmeras Hotel. First of all it has such a beautiful garden and beach, that it was always a pleasure to take a walk there. Area: The main building of the Hotel is quite good. There is a huge lobby, where every night you can have fun or only drink a coctail or... More

After moving from another hotel to this, I was very very relieved that we did! This hotel is a great 4 star hotel as you expect. It is a 3hr transfer to hotel so be prepared especially with children, but it's a scenic route along the sea and towns.The atmosphere is fantastic with lots of lively staff and evenings full... More

As a party of four who have travelled extensively throughout the Caribbean, we had a fair idea of what to expect in terms of accommodation & property maintenance…ie a little tired / shabby / run down etc etc. However the Sol Palmeras really pushed this to the limit. Overall the facilities were ok at best, but some areas were in... More

I just came back from a wonderful and happy 10 day vacation at the Sol Palmeras which was our 1st time going there. They up-graded our room to a suite per their error which was better than we originally had.

Check-in was prompt and despite having to wait for a room as we arrived early we were well looked after. The atmosphere, when first entering unfortunately set the tone for the rest of our stay. As a previous reviewer said, a touch of "Butlins". The food is generally poor, the buffet gets boring after a while and the à la... More
