very nice hotel, good food. The beach is beautiful. By cons, if you want to sleep well avoided bungalows, I only slept about 2 hours per night. People shout, soul and ca are really disturbing. I do not ever rent it a bungalow, very bad experience! Otherwise I recommeded this hotel.

value / average price put ....

Positive :

The beach is just beautiful!! the site is relatively clean and the hotel is located 10 minutes walk from the town of Varadero and markets chip. The restaurants in town are very good (about $ 22 per person on average). The hotel is nice but bring your own toilet paper wherever you go because it is a rare lol PS waitresses are very nice buffet.

Negative :

The food and the food still!! The taste is fine as long as you are not difficult but unmanageable! We were a group of 18 people and 14 of us were sick!! The a la carte restaurants are worse than the buffet. Be careful're better provide a solid budget restaurant in town is better. The lobby is small and everyone then smoke .... The pillows are body pillow so sensitive necks bring your pillows. Finally, for the bar service must give a tip because we see that they are tired of even tourist. I do not want to be too pessimistic have spent beautiful holiday still enough to have lots of Gravol :)

We are going to torque the week of March 29 and I was disappointed. No WIFI card, smoking everywhere, even at the beach restaurant. We had not finished our dinner table when our neighbor is on. I find it not very respectful. Furthermore, along the inside hall before entering the restaurant, there smokers. In terms of drinks, there were only orange juice, pineapple juice not for Mary picfor or other.

Positive :

The staff are very friendly and helpful. The beach is A1, food not bad but repetitive as usual,

Negative :

Lack of respect for non-smokers and lack of resources such as WIFI. Many cigarette butts in the sand at the beach. Pool not cleaned often. Always begging for chairs, not enough sunbed as the pool at the beach, Lots of broken chair.

I wonder how you prove that I am credible and I do not really find a solution. By cons I'll be honest and you decide if what I say seems true or not! We loved it! Really, being courteous, the hotel staff was totally friendly (I do not mean to give the tip without stopping, I mean a smile, a "gracias" and a "por favor" time to time). On the buffet, it is redundant and it is perfect: there is simply everything! How to be more varied when you offer it? We had never seen such a well stocked! And on top of that, there are some grills and bar really great pasta! The site of the hotel is huge, very pleasant but shallow pool and the beach is beautiful! The only problem concerns the chairs to the beach, get there early, as many people go there at 8:00 am to reserve chairs they never take throughout the day ... This should disappear but it has become commonplace. So a very generous amount of sun at the beach, nothing to say about it!

Positive :

Everything is perfect! The food, the buffet, the staff, the beach (just sand, I do understand where people were able to find corals ...) and restaurants in the following map: Seafood and Spanish. Room service is also excellent.

Negative :

The only real problem with this hotel was the customer: disrespectful people, people who think they are kings through a herd of slaves, who believe that everything is allowed and disrespectful to everyone except their navel . People returning to their rooms at 3:00 am screaming and singing (I was less proud to be a Quebecer as the days passed), people who throw their garbage on the ground by raising the nose , people who disrespect the staff of the hotel ... It was sad to see but can not do anything. And Lord, I loved the game of football in the morning before the dish of bacon buffet! It played the elbow it was funny to see! People who will steal your toast, etc ... Well, you see, we can not do anything for the customer can go to the beach and get away a bit :) Also, the buffet is open quite late, I therefore advise you to go to dinner and supper 14h to 20h, the army like that ogre has passed and the place is quieter :)

Positive :

Beautiful beach. The food at the buffet and the restaurants (Spanish, seafood and oriental) delicious. Good service + food bars, though some bartenders were not smiling. Large clean pools. Large and lit with pool view room.

Negative :

Poor room service: The room smelled after the passage of the maid (damp smell and pee), not filling shower gel and toilet paper (we had to ask!!) And very late in the afternoon household. Have had to complain to the front desk and housekeeper "christ" with beef by air more ... Also spider the ceiling of our room humidity and bugs: (

We traveled with family 6 people, Pappy mammy mom dad and 2 children, a super fun trip especially for the 2 children 8 years and 5 years this was their first experience. The 5 year old cried when we told him we have to go,,, I can not m saying go ........

Positive :

For the Solymar hotel we have a very good overall assessment The ability to enjoy both hotels and Solymar Arenas Blancas c "is very good, the pools are large and clean, with plenty of beach chairs, and generally clean, except on the end of the day with unwitting tourists who think that having paid can no longer worry of "environment the correct food in large quantities to be very picky to not find his account. The restaurants reservation, I would say medium as appreciation. Bungallow with the result was not what I had booked, however, and with confirmation, but hey it has to do with. The staff at the lobby bars are nice, the bar Lunas children are making friends with servers, and learned the "Spanish ... The gardens are very good you are in full greenery.

Negative :

The disappointment of not having the following bungallow yet booked because the room was downstairs for pappy and grandma with bad knees and hips, we had to go up and down all week because that was allocated bungaloow us rooms were on 2nd floor ... Then the 3004 bungalow has been neglected all week by the maid, not enough toilet paper, no soap, unwashed floors .. uncleaned mirrors, and the service rendered to 5 hrs when we returned to the beach. After asking the egg reception,,,,, the maid had an air of beef every other day, but tamps for her tips were cut.
