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

Good hotel perfect for young people and those who like to party. I think this is the best hotel located in varadero because the beach is beautiful and it is close to restaurants, calle62, Havana Club International and small shop within walking distance.

Positive :

Hotel in section two to accommodate two main types of customers: Solymar is festive on that beach and pool and it is quieter Arenas Blancas. The rooms are clean (for the ones I visited) but I saw one that smelt of damp in the villas. Beautiful beach with plenty of chairs and palapas for all. Solymar buffet is good.

Negative :

Restroom cleanliness leaves something to be desired but it is the fault of the people who can not stop himself. The food on the beach is poor and the buffet Arenas Blancas lack of choice so I recommend the buffet Solymar all.

beautiful place lush planting almost no activity clientelle 60 to 74 that a young single woman between 45 and 50, the juice mixed not very good. no atmosphere and music at the bar and especially 5 to 7, or the beach, arriving Friday and Monday almost half of hotel were gone. probably not the strongest season in early May.

Positive :

very wide range, very close to downtown and a beautiful site

Negative :

juice not very good, it's like they mixed the juice with water not very very flavor and mixed with bouissons not very good either. since the year I go check this hotel and the price is 1200 to 1300 and this year I had a ais 958, so if I would pay 1200 I would have been disappointed. and for smokers there is no ashtray on the site and the pool
