Just returned from a 2 week stay at Sol Palmeras. In total it will be around 40 weeks I have stayed here over the last 10 years. Need I say any more. If Sol Plameras was not an exellent resort I would not go back. I have stayed at other resorts in Cuba but none are like Sol Palmeras. The last time I visited Sol Palmeras was in Dec 2018 Just before the Pandemic arrived and turned the world upside down. The staff did there best to make sure the guests were able to enjoy there stay. The hotel, grounds and rooms were clean and well kept. The food was very good in a country where supplies are hard to come by. The entertainment was as always top notch. The resort was not too busy and that was the way I like it. It will pick up soon as the summer season is about to start. The weather was beautiful and very hot. I was happy that my AC unit worked well and kept my suite nice and cool. The staff as always were great and there are too many for me to thank so I will thank them all for the hard work they do to ensure the guests have a great trip. I am already planning a family trip in December back to Sol Palmeras.

As a Travel Consultant I had visited many hotels in many destinations in the Caribbean but this particular vacation to Sol Palmeras Varadero that I took recently with my family proved out to be one of the most memorable one, mainly because of the hotel itself and the heart touching Cuban hospitality. This was our first trip to Cuba ( I can promise that there will be many more to follow from now on ). We were kind of apprehensive about this trip due to all those negativity about Cuba but this Gem of a hotel " Sol Palmeras" surpassed all our expectations far beyond. This outstanding budget friendly hotel nestles in a lush vegetation on a stunning white sandy beach blends with the nature supplemented by beautiful landscaping. Great location, a five minutes free shuttle train ride to Plaza Las Americas. We stayed at the Superior rooms on 4th floor ( which seems to be newly renovated ) very clean, lots of light and no musty smell, comfortable beds and pillows, fairly upgraded washrooms. The quality of the foods in this hotel is another main reason for many of their repeat clients base ( we met a number of families there ). This hotel seems to be one of those fortunate hotel brand who can import some foods in Cuba. We had no problem with foods in any of those restaurants that we had lunch and dinner especially the buffet restaurant had plenty of food supplies with many options to choose from ( we didn't have to use any of our ketchup, spice etc that we brought with us ). The lobby bar and the entertainment area is a great place to relax and chill. We received excellent services from every single person working in this resort. Every employee seems to be very happy working here with a smiling face. We have met some incredible good human beings in them. Our very special thanks to Osiris and Dayana at the Guest Relations for making this trip more memorable for us ( they truly became one of our family now ), Maria the Sales Manager ( for giving me her valuable time ) and last but not the least, Mr Tomeu Alcina the General manager ( who I noticed, personally supervises every single service area in the resort, hats off to him ). We visited Havana and Varadero too and returned to Canada with a memory of a life time. Long live Cuba!

Just home from 4 weeks at this resort! First time at this hotel, but not first trip to Cuba. The resort is clean, full of welcoming staff eager to help all the time! Remember that in recent years Cuba is struggling with food supply for the Cuban people, but given this i was never disappointed with any food/meal. Do your research on Cuba before complaining about meat/lack of beef/steaks, or other food options. The food was fresh, clean, and plenty. I made too many friends to name them all - from reception, security, bell Boys, restaurant/bar staff,management always walking thru with a smile, maids, Entertainment staff, talented singers, trumpet, violinists! The staff /friends i made this vacation truly made my vacation! The beach is one of the best in Veradero! The rooms and pools were fantastic😊 Remember the staff are appreciative of any tips you can leave, but if you’re going to tip in loonies/toonies, remember they can’t deposit coins… so bring $5’s and $10’s and help exchange them before you leave! Also they can’t deposit bills that are torn or written on! I can’t wait to return & thank you to each and everyone of the staff i met this vacation! 💕

My wife and I just returned from a week at Sol Palmeras, and we both enjoyed our stay very much. The staff were more than friendly and helpful - they were like family! It was our first trip to Cuba and our first all-inclusive vacation and we were a little worried about whether we would like it because we are more used to cruising. However, we thoroughly enjoyed our 7 days there! The beach was second to none and was an ideal place to view sunrises and sunsets. I am a photographer and found photographic subjects everywhere on the resort! My granddaughter, a budding photographer, spent much of her time in the pool and she accompanied me on a few photo trips around the resort! My grandson spent his time playing ping pong, soccer, basketball and swimming! Lots for kids to do there! I would definitely return to this resort. My hat goes out to the entire entertainment crew - especially Carlos who is such a talented person with a very big heart!

It was a really fun experience for me and my family. It wasn’t that busy when we went so we got a lot of attention and care from the staff. The activities during the day and night are really fun, inclusive for all ages and lots of salsa dancing ! The beach is beautiful and just outside the resort, can’t wait to come back soon!
