    “Nice vacation at Barcelo Solymar”

    Last month I was for 10 days at the Barcelo Solymar. The great advantages of this hotel are the beautiful beach and the 5 minutes walk to Varadero bars and restaurants. This hotel is a good example of value for money. My last vacation was the 7 times at this hotel. I want to thank some employees who are the most friendliness specially at the bars. First, I want to thank Ana and Humberto at the beach bar, always smiling and very effective. Second, the entire staff of the pool bar with the Queen Lala, Riley, David, Aleouchi and finally my good good friend Morgan.

    “Food not as expected but it's Cuba!”

    This hotel is very nice and big. The staff was very nice also. The entertainment could have been better. I feel like they should have more things to do especially during the evening. The food was okay. There were lots of vegetables but the meat was very bad quality. If you stay less than three nights you cannot make reservations at other restaurants. You can only eat at the Buffet.

    BarceloSmAb, Director de Relaciones Públicas at Barcelo Solymar, responded to this review
     Dear Lidice M. We also regret that our buffet couldn´t meet your expectations, mainly because the quality and the diversity of our culinary offer counts to our strengths. We take your comments regarding our cuisine very seriously, because we wish that our gastronomy remains a very special treat for our guests. Best Regards.

    “Dirty, outdated, overall terrible excuse for a resort”

    Do yourself a favor and stay far away - the hotel was falling apart, the only good thing was the proximity to the beautiful beach of Varadero. We ate in the main dining room where dead cockroaches lined the floors, the towels in our room were dirty and old and seemed to have a blood-like stais on them, the bathroom stunk of sewage water, and the overall ambiance of the hotel was very poor.

    “WOW!!! JUST AMAZING!!! ”

    I usually wait until I get back home to write something but I feel I had to do this live while I’m here. I know there’s plenty of negative reviews but I can only speak from my own experience. In my opinion the resort is great. It has everything you need: -Great location (a few minutes walk to the main strip with most of the bars and restaurants) -THE BEACH THE BEACH THE BEACH!!! Simply amazing with its white sand and crystal clear water -I’m staying in the bungalows and the room is great -The staff is very kind and helpful, never had a problem Keep in mind this resort caters to a more younger crowd and it’s known to have a more party atmosphere which coming from someone that’s 50 I really didn’t mind but I guess it has to be your thing. I’ve been to Cuba quite a few times with the first ones being in the Cayos. Nothing wrong there but you can’t beat Varadero and the proximity this resort offers to everything. On a last note I’d like to thank all the staff and management, especially Brisaida, for making this stay so far a memorable one. I’ll definitely be coming back to the Solymar.

    “take your towels from home but better choose another hotel”

    I was staying for 1 night with late check-out. It was expected relaxing day at the end of island trip. Room is dated and bathroom was dated 30 years ago. door to the balcony is almost imposiible to move. I was asked to wait untill 4 pm as room was not ready (what is OK as this is hotel policy). But I got only 2 small towels. I reminded reception a few times, then complained, then reminded again, shouted once but they were not able to give me towels neither for beach, or for bathroom. this is my first experience using bed sheet instead(((. Hotel is extremely noisy at night, drunk people are running and shouting everywere. I found plastic can after someones drink on my room door in the morning. this was room in the main building. reception is extremely slow and unhappy, looks overloaded and tired with all these turists... food was OK, nothing to be proud of. Meat was cooked badly, limited choice in vegitables. nice beach, possible to find natural shadow
