    “honest review”

    i don't even know where to start. the buffet is the worst i ever seen the smell when you enter is disgusting. this should be 1or 2 star resort. they say there's an 24hours bar wich is false lobby bar close at 11 and you can just get hot beer after at snack bar. the bar at the beach is occidental side you need to walk so far. been here couple times it's worst everytime and price go up ??? really.the room they seem wtv but been sick every single time i stayed there. met people that were sick too loosing there voice and i think i must have been due to all the mold in the rooms and dirty really dirty a/c. the animation is so boring they do bingo every single day and can't wait for 5 oclock to go and run away. people seem to hate there job not a smile there or an hello.i don't understand the high price for this hotel it should not be more than 500-600 since you have to pay to go out to eat or get a drink that you can actually drink that doesn't taste horrible.the only thing good about this hotel is the location but it's not worth the price there asking it's ridiculous

    “Wonderful, relaxing trip!”

    I have just returned from Cuba. I stayed in a Superior Bungalow and it was excellent! On a daily basis, the services for the room was very good. The favorite part of the trip, for me, were the people and the great variety of food. At the restaurants you have great choice and you can consume as much as you desire. I am very fussy about food and I always find many food items that I can eat. Each morning, I am able to walk, each morning, alone, downtown.because i feel totally safe. The best part of my experience is always the beautiful people. I love Lala who works at the (Los Dunas bar), the housekeeper Yadita David Martinez Ordouez, at the adjoining bar, I like all of the dinner lobby, the entertainment staff and Yuya, Alain, Daimenys, Comito,and Yosvany at the main lobby bar, because the people are genuine and always accommodating. If you have any questions or problems, you are always able to get answers or have your problems rectified. The manager is very genial and asks about your stay, whether negative or positive. I acknowledge that there are some minor problems at the resort(the hotel is in dire need of work). However, they NEVER have a negative impact on my enjoyment of this beautiful, exciting, invigorating country. I have traveled to other countries, such as Italy and Spain and did not enjoy the food, in either country and the people in Italy. Overall, I enjoy the food and people, in Cuba, This was my sixth trip and as long as my health permits, i will visit Cuba, on a yearly basis. Susan Lucas (ssnsnow@aim.com)

    “Best chef in varadero”

    lucky for us we had the best meal at sea food restaurant chef Hector his very impressive , my opinion he could compete with any great canadian chef ! We had the best meal no doubt about it. The service by katty crew was impeccable . I just wish that the great chef Hector was in charge of the buffet at solimar it would bring a few more star for this hotel rating .
