We arrived here after 3 nights in Habana. This is a very spacious hotel with speedy check in. We did have a room at the rear which is nice and quiet but we did want a forward view of the pool and we were able to move the following day. Very impressed with all aspects of this hotel.

My family and I (13 and 16 year old boys) visited Sol Polmeras March 10-17. Drinks: Caridad, the bartender at The Plaza bar (outside the Italian restaurant) is the friendliest lady around. She makes great Mojitos, Strawberry Daiquiris and Pina Colodas. Her drinks are the real thing, not like the ones from any other bar at the resort. Food: The...

The trip to Cuba was awesome, one of our best trips. So, about the hotel, we do not regret the choice, we loved it. To have in mind that it is Cuba and because of the embargo it is normal that the feed-stock is very expensive and because of that they try to maintain the structures the best they can....

My wife and I traveled throughout Cuba this month, using a rental car. After an exhaustive trip around the island, visiting relatives in Pinar Del Rio, birding the Vinales region, we decided to spend our last 2 days before returning to the USA relaxing at SP, enjoying the food, ocean, pool, etc. I messed up BIG. I made the reservation...

My family and I stayed March 11-18 in a bungalow. This is my sixth time in Cuba with a number of visits to each Mexico and Jamaica for comparison. As resort amenities go, Sol Palmeras is pretty standard - nice and well maintained but nothing that stands out. It is divided into two adjoining compounds: the main hotel and pool...

We stayed at Sol Palmeras in the end of February. Although we booked accidentally (long story) we did not regret. The service is great. Staff is friendly. Food is good. This is our second time in Cuba. Being a vegan family of 3 we are always concerned when we travel if we find enough food choices in a resort. Sol...

This was my tenth visit to Cuba but my first to Varadero and the Sol Palmeras. I found this resort to be well managed, clean and friendly.
