We were 3 girls aged between 18 and 21 years. We were accommodated at Arenas Blancas. The rooms are clean and really nice.

Positive :

The fact that Arenas Blancas and Barcelo Solymar is a great advantage! The two complement each other perfectly. The Italian restaurant Solymar is very good, we went to dinner there almost everyday! The atmosphere on the beach is much more fun side of Solymar. The buffet too! The ambiance bar / lobby is much better against Arenas. The pool is also nicer to Arenas! There is a restaurant on the beach side of the Arenas, the buffet is very good for lunch. There was often a beach party on the side of Solymar evening at the beach bar, good atmosphere. The Arenas is a few seconds walk from the city. The havana club has a very good atmosphere. And filet mignon at the restaurant La Fondu is super good ... and cheap! The Beatles also can be an interesting evening. We did the Jeep Safari tour and this was the best expenditure of the week. It is an unforgettable day! It's worth what it costs and it was a full day of activities!

Negative :

Pay attention to what you eat. About 11 people, we were at least 6 to be sick. Most of the time, the lobby of the toilet or any toilet outside the rooms, no toilet seat. Also, if you plan to go out in the city, bring you the toilet paper. You often pay outside the hotel.

Excellent hotel, everything is really ok liked was super, small snag on the beach ,,, lack of chairs, the selfish world who reserve chairs at the beach and the pool and sometimes they are nowhere ,,, parties in town.

Positive :

A wonderful hotel and beautiful beaches. The food was good and very clean. There were also fine performances. Me and my partner have enjoyed it :)

Negative :

Sometimes the service can be a bit slow. It just takes a little patience and say that we are on vacation. There was also the smell of oil that seemed normal for employees, but it was not very pleasant for us. That said, we had friends who was at a hotel 30 minutes away from ours and they also smelled. So it was not related to the hotel, but Varadero.

As for the hotel, (amenity) this is what I expected ... value. As for the staff, well below my expectations ... it seems more disturbing than anything else, no smile, no hello, they did not even raise his head to look at us to Varadero in general ( 6 times already and fifteen Varadero in Cuba) very disappointed hospitality Cuban Despite their wonderful sea, and competitive prices, I think to set foot in this country, when I travel, I don ' not expect that you place me the red carpet, but a minimum of respect is needed ..... and that, I do not know why, Cuban did really more.

Negative :

lack of respect towards tourists of any country.

We were at the Barcelo Arenas Blancas from 12 to 19 January.

Positive :

Beautiful beaches, good food, nice hotel. I loved being able to go on two sites and the nearby village.

Negative :

Please do not book the sea view if you want the tranquility because the whole evening entertainment and bars are just down ... very very noisy! . I really appreciated being informed me of this before my arrival. Our only defensive weapon: good oreilles.Beaucoup plugs for the young at this time of the lot so noisier year night around 4am when they return to their rooms in hurlant.apportez your beach towel as there seems a t_il problem with the company that washes all varadero towels and there were towels available only on the day 3.Difficulté to have place on the chair because people early and reserve them there are sometimes a few hours later ... cheap shot.

Arenas Blancas, near the "downtown" (Calle 62 and Beatles), 5 min walk, we went there every day sometimes 2 times a day. It's worth walking down the street to 32nd "Calle 32", to enjoy Cuban life, its merchants and the many cafes / bar that litter the main. For single girls (s) eg not recommended to walk that far in the evening. Do you rent a scooter, $ 22 per night, great activity to visit the island (bring your driving license (and passport) or they can not rent). All credit cards accepted at the International bank for cash advance (at 32nd Avenue), otherwise the convertible peso is king for everything you buy. Mastercard not accepted in automated teller machines (36 th Avenue, 2 wickets), Visa ok. Bring your umbrella (small if possible) if you plan to walk every day, it rains at least one day a week ... if not full of taxi approx 1 km peso. Quatro Palmas and Arenas are two good hotel choice for those who want to be close to the action and life of "downtown" Varadero.

Positive :

Although it is not new hotel, it is clean and well maintained in general. I have not seen any insect pest in the hotel or my room. Very acceptable food to Cuba, it is necessary to go to the side of the Barcelo available for customers Arenas, which offers a much more generous and varied buffet, Barcelo was recently renovated and offers more luxury in its public areas. Customer Barcelo younger than Arenas (approx early thirties) and the beach there is a lot more action Barcelo side (music, volleyball, etc ...) while Arenas side quieter . Buffet restaurant near the beach in Arenas very well recommended for lunch (noon-15h). Barcelo farther from downtown on foot (30 min walk). Common range for all hotels: great !!! Probably the best I've seen. Arenas food 24, available at the restaurant near the beach after midnight (hotdog, hamburger and fries, draft beer, water)

Negative :

shows the ordinary Arenas (or go to Calle62 Beatles (rocks show excellent live)). Quiet but clean pool, pretty family with young children. Shared bathrooms (lobby and other) rather messy and sometimes disgusting smell (go to your room if you can !!). Lobby bar rather small, long wait when crowded. Cleanliness kitchens who prepares the food certainly does not meet the North American standard! wash hand they sometimes ?? ... General Decor, dull and pale colors, fluorescent light to the lobby atmosphere rather drab.
