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.

I would not have changed my Barcelo Arenas Blancas for any other, it was very good, if you want more action go Solimar. and the hotel is conveniently located near the city center for walking and kiosks for shopping

Positive :

perfect place to relax or for those who like to move, mass activities

Negative :

Cuba, the food is not too good, choose chicken and rice paste, this is good

This was my 7th time in Cuba and I think it'll be the last time. Cuba has changed and I do not believe it to be in it!

Positive :

Nice hotel, well located. Beautiful beach. Hotel's staff are generally very nice (except 2 persons)

Negative :

The food is not good. Hotel very bryant for rooms that overlook the pool because of fêtars who sing and shout the night without thinking that they prevent people from sleeping. We had booked a superior room with s view of the sea and got a room where we see the distant sea and overlooking the pool. We were in block 5 I think the block 4 overlooking the sea was much quieter and would have had a real view of the sea. "Drinks" are not very good. We had rain for 3 days and the water was running all over the hotel (even in our room)! At the end many people were sick. Difficult to find a "palapa" on the beach because many come sooner wear a towel and return to the beach much later: I think a lack of respect!

we could not go to blancas because it was under renovation, we have to transfer card Solymar, what a disaster, this hotel should be renovated because it're infected. have youth about twenty years with their big radio that does not respect the people, the music at the end throughout the site, another pipe with a hatchet who walked and gave poffes to all those who wanted. we could not hear the evening coffee so there was noise, even servers fesait their tunes and more to be inside people smoked cigars méchand trip.

Positive :

nothing much except some positive waitress at buffet

Negative :

this hotel is really the worst I've visited, in the rooms there is so much wind that between ca prevent us from sleep we had to install towels in the cracks, the first week no activiter not show either we are going to do an activity, see the cathedral and the show rate, we could not enter because it was Saturday and it was close, I'm already out that go on a Thursday and it was closed for renovation. the show was supposed to be outdoors, but there was a renovation Havana, it was outside, we were all together like sardines and it is the same show that there are at Memories Cayo Coco, ca us listen to 260.00 Canadian, a hotel when you're on the beach and you want to, you have to go in the lobby restaurant seafood and it is about 5 minutes from the sea and even in the lobby of the hotel there is only one toilet in the hall and art room and feel the urine and no toilet paper in any of the hotel amenities, and the other is completely at the end behind the bar inside or worldwide smoke. the hotel was at full power so when the first week of rain we had to go to our room after waiting in line for the buffet because there were too many people. the early days people only came to clean we had to complain and also to block the sink that was it took a week. it's been 9 years since I go to cuba, never seen such a hotel, all are under renovation, we had to go to aranas blancas but it was under renovation but the other is not better, it's really a two star. one of the pools was green, there were so many people that could barely swim in the pool is to the sea was forbidden because of the big waves,

As Arenas Blancas was closed for renovation, we were sent to the Solymar.

Positive :

The place is very nice, clean and perfectly located. The beach is beautiful. Even the food was good and I would say excellent (except lasagna) Italian eatery in the lobby. Two pools serve the Solymar, one quieter. Lots of chairs available at the beach as that at the pool. Few palapas at the pool and at the beach a lot. Our room was spacious and clean. The mini fridge was full of beer, liquor and water every day.

Negative :

Invasion, the 3rd day of our holiday Cuban, Peruvian and Venezuelan have not learned to live with their children and not knowing themselves to be held in public during the week of Thanksgiving. Looks like a gang of Elvis Gratton power. Never on that date. Yet we love the local flavor in general, but there is was too much ... luckily there was qu''il beach !!!!

We booked Arenas and we went to Barcelo Solimar. Week of good weather and heat +++

Positive :

The buffet is very good and varied. Activities are good. Beach towels were in the room and returned to the room.

Negative :

The air conditioning was not working very little air and no more had not connected before we arrived so it was a furnace entering the room. The last two days, no water in the toilet. We made the trip to Havana with a car which slammed the bag so you could hear not speak the guide. There would be renovations to this room because it smells damp and mold in rooms
