Beautiful beach. Pleasant. Courteous and friendly staff. Italian and Chinese restaurants are our favorites.

Positive :

After contacting the hotel to tell them that we are regular customers of Melia Sol Palmeras and in particular Mr. Gessa took care of booking our rooms and à la carte restaurants.

Negative :

The staff at check in was not really friendly. Probably they were under pressure, a group arrived at the same time as us. They wanted to hear nothing of our email exchanges with Mr. Gessa. One of the attendants towels is not very friendly either. Nothing seems to want to know people.

Negative :

We were there in April 2013, with a small 6 month old baby. Excellent hotel. In the past, I went to Tuxpan and two hotels 4 1/2 stars in Cayo Coco and I must say that the Sol Palmeras amply exceeds these hotels. This is an excellent 4 star. The food is varied and each day you can buffet and another small restaurant if you're up late. For dinner, there are also options, the buffet and the beach bar and a la carte restaurant (burger, sandwich ham, rice etc). We went to the Italian restaurant only among the five a la carte restaurants. It was excellent. Well sure, it is not exactly as in Italy, but it was not the buffet tables. The menu was different. The animation is excellent and the resort is not dérangerante. There are always all over the pool to the beach to be quiet. In the evening, there are always singing in the lounge before and after the shows. The performances are as varied (stunt bike, water ballet, magician, etc..) To travel with a baby or a child, it is a great place. There are lift so walking with a stroller is easy. Upon arriving we were in a room with two beds pushed together instead of a double bed. We asked to change and the next day we were in a room with a king bed.

Positive :

Everything! I had read the reviews before going and I was not disappointed. We had excellent service. Be nice to the servers and give tip allowed us to have a 5 star service. It was also disappointing to see that very few people gave the tip. This is the first time I'd be willing to suggest a hotel.

Negative :

He had to get up early (7:30) to get palmas on the edge of the sea, but there was always chairs available and that even in the shade no matter the time of day. There were staff who traveled the pool chairs at the beach as needed and temperature.

Beautiful 4 star in Cuba. I suggest you if you do not have very high food standards

Positive :

- Directly on the beach (main hotel), lots of chairs and palapas, towel service, ice cream stand was yum! - 30 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from downtown Varadero, train Property - Standard Room a good size, very clean with beautiful towel sculptures :) large bathroom, lots of pressure in the shower - Good effort in a la carte restaurants (scenery, diversity) Especially the seafood restaurant El Marino - Very clean - Beautiful lobby, lots of space for a drink and sit

Negative :

- No gym - mattress in the room not very comfortable, no storage for clothes - Buffets, inconsistent service and quality (no bcp choice, everything seemed the same, simple execution) - Shows and entertainment a bit amateur - No server to the beach or the pool, no swim up bar

beautiful catamaran excursions, perfect weather, friendly place

Positive :

nice hotel, great restaurants, great bungalows and pleasant, easy access to the beach, good food, choice of two swimming pools, a lot of possible activities, etc.

Negative :

some rooms are a bit remote from the heart of the hotel rooms infested with small ants otherwise everything is very clean, the sand of the upper part of the beach is filled with pieces of shells large enough to hurt your feet, refrigerators filled only twice a week instead of every day, but everything else is ok or better, good hotel in general
