We were at this hotel from June 15 to June 21, 2013 and I enjoyed my stay. It was 17 when I went back to the hotel. Good service and very friendly staff. This hotel is like our cabin and we're still going in January June and September.

Positive :

The beautiful beach clean room friendly and helpful staff. For food and of course is cuba but always managed to find something to put in their mouths.

Negative :

S for me is like my second home. Everything is perfect and given the number of times at this hotel, and outstanding service. There are advantages to always return to the same hotel.

Me and my boyfriend had a great trip to this hotel. We get between 11 and 18 May 2013.

Positive :

One positive is that we may as well eat in the buffet Barcelo Solymar than go see the show we like in one of the two hotel. So more choice of pools, buffets, a la carte restaurants and also more animation. People are really nice, I have not met anyone who did a stupid air, people had all the lip smile! The food was excellent for Cuba and the beautiful beach! Hotel very well located a few steps from the town of Varadero, so really easy to access the buses that make us go around the tip of Varadero. The rooms are very clean and well maintained.

Negative :

Surprisingly I have no negative point raised except maybe the building would need a fresh coat of paint, but for me it really is not some thing that bothers me!

We stay at Arenas Blancas April 30 to 7 May .... Oufffff what about this trip ... we arrive at 14h there was no room before 16h .... Hotel as a very young side of Barcelos Salymor .... noise ... noise ... noise ... was not much slept .... Little security ... we call to make complaints and nothing ... Ontarians and Torontonians in industrial quantities to come celebrate their end of the session ... NO respect ... they are shit in a lift, break, windows, flower pots ... Vomit in a pool .... her screaming and screaming at all hours of the day or night and so on ..... !! we change room 3 times in 2 days (including one that cost us $ 50 pesos for a night .... the lady was not happy ben ben) ...... !! According to several Quebec traveler who is attending this hotel not believe .... I will not be traveling in the these dates!

Positive :

Very good food, clean, clean room pool, delicious Mexician Resto. , Incredible beach

Negative :

We demand Wakup Call in the morning because there are no dial clock in the rooms .. He forgets to call .... : A Few Safety difficult to get service and support. Drink too strong .... Even if their request to put a little less alcohol rooms are made very late .... 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. ..

It was a good hotel, the fourth I do in Varadero. I would rank second, just behind Playa de Oro. A big plus point is that it is at the beginning of the first avenue, so easy to get around, no need to take a taxi, the carriages, buses! And that is connected with the Solymar, so there is everything to everyone. Parties, tranquility, it is!

Positive :

Drinks provided each day in the room. The number of bar, near the city center, LONG beach, the beauty of the resort. Some people were very friendly. Really good Mexican restaurant!

Negative :

Non variety on the menu, always the same. The slowness of employees, it was amazing. Yes, it is in their culture, I know, but there they were exaggerating. You do not want to work, go home what! It was pitiful! View a server at the bar ask you what you want, you tell him one beer, he says to you, perfect. Following this, he starts fooling around, wasting time with the other bartender, AFTER he have a beer for HIM! Once there, he decided to serve ... How pathetic! Closing the pool bar at midnight ... must go solymar it is open at night, it's really disappointing. The leaders were not present OFTEN ... and there was no promotion for the evening show ... I have not been to see one ... only! In short, there is work to do, but this is a good hotel!

Stayed April 5 to April 19 at the Barcelo Solymar

Positive :

I really liked this place. Supersaver our 2nd floor room overlooking the pool was very nice with flat screen TV & fridge filled every day. As I'm not picky and I love to eat everything and not afraid to try, I liked the food. The a la carte restaurants was very good though so ... lobster was overcooked unfortunately but hey, I went to eat 2 times Barbacoa & Barracuda. I thought the staff was very nice except for some but it did not spoil my holiday so far. A guided day in Havana for 59 CUC pesos it was great. I certainly went back .....

Negative :

As we were next to the pool and therefore the bar of it, people were celebrating a little late so we could hear them shouting late some nights but you get used.

Barcelo Solymar 21 mars au 28 mars 2013

Positive :

The site is very clean! The room too! The staff were acueillants! Magnificent beach. Near the town of Varadero. The staff we try to speak French :) Location safely.

Negative :

The food is poor, depending on the tastes (no variety). Cleaning our room was often around 3:30, 4:00, so two days it is not happen. The fridge filled 1 times 2! Not much choice of drink. Bar closes early! The 24hrs is no atmosphere. And no coffee maker in our room (very nice trip though, I go back malgrés these little details!

Positive :

The hotel is perfectly located. The beach is very good. The site is nice and there are plenty of greenery. For Cuba, the buffets are great.

Negative :

There was a leak in our bathroom, which woke us up at night. We did not have hot water during our stay of 7 days. Lack of chairs at the pool. The a la carte restaurants are not at the level that it should be entitled. We have not been able to access the total number of à la carte restaurants which we are entitled because the staff was poorly planned reservations. We were not offered anything to compensate, which equates to a lack of professionalism.
