    “Beware...and do not stay here!”

    It was our first time going to Barcelo and heard that you shouldn’t expect too much from this resort because it’s a known party place, very loud, etc. I couldn’t believe how run down and dirty the whole resort is. We arrived at Noon and the check-in was at 4pm? We waited for hours for our room to be “clean” when we finally went into our room it was filthy, safe was broken, door in the washroom couldn’t close, huge piece of dust all over the floor, pillows were black along with the mattress...and small towels for 2 people that were also dirty! we just couldn’t believe our eyes and how the maids would even think that our room was “ready” for our stay. Thankfully, we met amazing tourists who were staying next door at Arenas Blancas and let us know that we can request to transfer..which we did the following day and couldn’t believe the difference in cleanliness, service, buffet, atmosphere, it was just over all amazing and we will NEVER go back to BARCELO IT WAS A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT! we’ve travelled to Varadero many times and this resort should be embarrassed running there resort this way!

    “BARCELO SOLYMAR ARENAS BLANCAS”

    HELLO AGAIN EVERYONE Great news I must say that my trip this time was much better. After being a customer of Barcelo for the past 7 yrs going to the same place twice a year for 7 yrs I must say tell you about the service rendered at the Hotel. The service is excellent the people are friendly they will bend over to assist you the food is great you could not ask for more from people. Yes there are always a few hick ups like the towel issues on this trip for some customers but all they had to do to is walk over to Solymar and they would get the fresh towels. A small inconvenience but all in all Great service attitude was friendly and room clean. I highly recommend this resort. Close to all amenities within walking distance.

    “Ok”

    Similar to the arenas Blanca's...although staff bit friendlier and the hotel appearance at entrance is a wee bit nicer. The cafeteria is cleaner. I wouldn't recommend the massage unless u want bruises or hand cream in your face for facial. Drinks are cold though

    “Fun week in Varadero”

    First and last time at this resort. Check in was easy as we upgraded to a less crappy room. The air worked well as did the shower but the shower doors were broken which is why there was mold everywhere. Towels were stained and discoloured as was the bed sheets. So gross! Terrible beds, more like army beds. Food was really bad even for Cuba. Even the A La Cart dinners were terrible. Always cold! Pool view was mistake as all the drunk kids kept us up all night. Too many 20 year old punks from Toronto that thought they were in the UFC. Fights every day and the staff/security did nothing. Fights in the buffet, tables flipped over. People with broken legs, feet, arms. skull fractures. We were nervous just going to the pool. Great beach and most staff were really nice. Bar staff were rude and attended to Spanish people first even if some people waited 20 minutes for a beer. Not a resort that I would recommend. I told this story to Air Transit who didn't care to reply

    A discount* or promotional code (also appears as “promo code”) is a combination of letters and/or numbers that gives a discount on the normal rate. If you have a discount code, enter it when booking and you will receive a discount on your booking. Once you have entered this code, the prices shown in step 1 of the booking process will already include the relevant discount. 

    The discount does not apply to prices on extras and/or extra services, neither does it apply to prices on last available rooms. You can only apply one discount code per booking which will only be valid at the time of making your booking.** 

    The maximum amount of accumulated discount will be at most 25% off the rate for hotels in Latin America and at most 20% off the rate for European and Mediterranean hotels. It is possible to combine a discount code with a special discount*** (discounts when you book multiple rooms, senior, resident, millennials, large families, etc.) and the discount for being a my Barceló client. 

    *Barceló reserves the right to accept the application of advertised discounts. 

    **The application of the discount code is not valid upon arrival at the hotel; the discount is only applicable at the time of booking. 

    ***The hotel will request to see valid official documents to verify compliance with the conditions for the discount codes and special discounts. In the event of not providing valid official documents or non-compliance, the hotel reserves the right to charge the amounts that were deducted from the original reservation.
