Stayed at the Sol the week of April 12 to 19 in Bungalow 123. Great location, close to the Beach and to the main building which houses the Buffet restaurant. After being at the Melia Varadero a couple of weeks earlier, it was easy to compare these two resorts owned by the same company. The buffet food setup is actually... More

I read these religiously when choosing a resort so I figured I should give my opinion as well. First, people who complain about the food and the resorts not being an actual 4-5 start should not be going down south.. it is what it is. Room: We got a bungalow, I would 100% advise people to get a bungalow.. they... More

We stayed at the soul Palmeras the April 11 to the 18th overall it was a very decent experience. The first night there was a mixup with the room we were put in the bungalows which we found very dated and far away from the main hotel this was rectified the next day and we are put into rooms on...

This hotel is fine, but having stayed at a 4 and 5 star in Morocco last year, for a lot less money, I was a little disappointed by the quality of the rooms and facilities. The weather was great, but nowadays you really expect WiFi in the reception at least (to be free of charge) for guests. We would recommend... More

Cuba - Varadero - Sol Palmeras Resort (a 4-star Melia resort) For the past 20 years, we've been going on vacation in the Caribbean area, every year. It was our first and probably last time in Cuba this year, at the beginning of April. I'll start with the conclusion: Tour operators in Canada (WestJet, Sunwing, Transat, Signature, etc.) are FLEECING... More

We just returned from our third time to the Sol Palmeras after spending another family holiday there. As always, the staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and to make sure that things are going well. We have never had a bad day here. We do not come here because the resort is new and shiny.... More

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.
