My husband and I decided to book a last minute vacation to Varadero to get away from the cold weather at home. We had originally booked at the Occidental Arenas Blancas but when we arrived there at midnight were told they were full so we were being sent to the Barcelo Solymar.

Hotel's Favorite
Last January, i had the pleasure of going to the Occidental Arenas Blancas, and this January, the Barcelo Solymar, right next door. What is good about these 2 places, is you can go to both. The buffets, the nightime shows, even the a la carte restaurants. Another plus is, they

The beach is fantastic and is the best asset for the hotel...The place is seriously ready for renovation as it's run down. Being a hotel on Cuba we had set our expectation low but it was overpriced for 2 rooms for 5 people. Upon arrival one bathroom wasn't cleaned and it toke 5

The hotel physically is ok, the food is average, but what made this place great for us was the animation team, Bruno, Rolly, Claudia and the others do a great job of keeping you entertained the whole trip. I have been to this resort twice, the main reason I came back the second

This, like all the hotels in Cuba, are all going downhill. It is so unfortunate the Cuban government does nothing for the tourism in Cuba and just lets all their hotels deteriorate like this one. This hotel was beautiful in 2009 when we were there last and we had a fantastic

vista espectacular!!
Los colchones están gastados, lo menos que se espera es una cama cómoda aunque pedimos cambio los de reemplazo estaban igual
Yes. You can eat at Arenas Blancas if you stay at Solymar. Use their pool etc.... walk through their lobby and walk to the right and you are downtown Veradero. Restaurants and shops. 24 hour clinic. Calle 62 (a fun bar with live entertainment). The Beatles bar with rock bands. If you stay at Arenas Blancas you can NOT eat at Barcelo Solymar. I recommend staying at Solymar.

"ask for a better one, they all suck"
"Ask if they have a room with a comfortable bed. Pick rooms not overlooking pool -party central."
"Don't chose any room, stay somewhere else"
"Be hard when registering on the reception otherwise they will try to put you on a deficient room"
"All rooms are good, if you are not happy they try and give you another one."
