We were upgraded to this hotel after a very poor experience at another hotel. The Solymar was a very nice and welcoming place. The rooms were clean and very well maintained. The food was very enjoyable and there was a large variety to choose from. It did seem a bit crowded but that is probably just me as I don't... More

This two hotels combination could be very nice place to spend your holidays, but the very heavy noise at the pool side and the beach side too, was too much for us. We spend 10 days on Mar 2014 there, now for third time and our opinion is that the infernal noise has growed up more and more. Nowbody knows... More

Unless you are a large enough party to need multiple rooms do not waste your money upgrading to a bungalow, basically you will be sharing a living room and dinette with total strangers and sleeping in the equivalent of separate hotel rooms upstairs. Water pressure was good Food was better than expected however the service at the a la carte's... More

This was our 4th time back to Arenas Blancas and we will definitely come back every year. Many of the staff are like family to us so we come to Cuba primarily for the people. The beaches are the best anywhere in the world and you can walk all over Varadero in a very safe place. Very few Caribbean locations... More

Just got back from another trip to Arenas Blancas. This was our 8th stay at this resort and for sure we will be back again next year. The weather was great, no rain at all. The only complaint I have was the location of our room. We had requested a room overlooking either the pool or the parking lot and... More

We went on a group tour to this hotel. It's a decent hotel for 3 star standard however faces issues of cold water, uncleaned washroom and uncleaned pool, occasionaly. Overall, we had a good time. Due to Cuba's economic conditions hotel lacks proper facility such as running elevator, Internet and food sanitation.

Everything was excellent !!! This was my third time at the Barcelo Solymar, and won't be my last. I went with my husband and son, there was something to do for each of us. The staff at the Barcelo go way above their call of duty to help you and make your stay very enjoyable. The staff from the management,... More

My boyfriend and I just got back from a wonderful, five-day stay at Barcelo Sol y Mar. We had fabulous weather the entire time and I would certainly recommend the place – for the right kind of traveler. The Sol y Mar section of the resort can get pretty rowdy. We were shocked to find the place so busy during... More
