Good for Cuba

This hotel offers a good selection by Cuban standards. Food is okay compared to other experiences and rooms are clean. They have a good selection of pools and bars. The reception staff could do with being more helpful but that seems to be the way for Cuba as a whole.

The best thing about my stay was...

All inclusive

Great hotel and location

I thoroughly enjoyed the hotel and the amenities here. Staff were very friendly. Food was excellent. Location was great - a short walk outside the hotel and you were in the main town strip. The beach was stunning. All the amenities to offer at the hotel were without fault. The only thing that ruined the trip were the large amount of drunken groups of younger travelers on college break. If you stayed away from the Solymar pools you could avoid them though.

The best thing about my stay was...

Food, Pools, beach, proximity to town

hotel barcelò arenas blancas-solymar

Il complesso Barcelò di Varadero è composto da 2 hotel contigui, l'Arenas Blancas che è un 4 stelle e il Solymar che è un 5 stelle. Si possono usufruire i servizi come bar ristoranti piscine spiaggia e varie attività di entrambi gli hotel. L'Arenas Blancas è un po' più tranquillo, il Solymar è frequentato principalmente da giovani canadesi che alzano un po' troppo il gomito e fanno molta confusione. A parte questo posso dire di essermi trovata molto bene, le camere sono ampie, pulite, dotate di ogni comfort, il minibar viene rifornito quotidianamente e gratuitamente, il cibo del buffet è buono soprattutto quello del Solymar ed anche nei ristoranti a la carte si mangia bene. La spiaggia è molto bella, in quella dell'Arenas Blancas ci sono pochi ombrelloni però e manca il bar. Le piscine sono belle e pulite e l'animazione è coinvolgente ma non assillante e fanno dei bei spettacoli la sera. La posizione è strategica perchè è in pieno centro a Varadero quindi ci si può muovere a piedi senza dover prendere sempre il taxi. Un ringraziamento particolare a Diago il barista della piscina dell'Arenas Blancas che è sempre stato molto gentile e professionale e a tutto il personale. Consiglio vivamente di prenotare quest'hotel, sicuramente ci ritornerò.

Magnifica playa con hotel de mediana calidad

Hotel al lado de una maravillosa playa, habitaciones aceptables aunque el aire acondicionado no funciona adecuadamente en todas las habitaciones, pocas actividades recreativas, en el todo incluido bebidas de bajo coste. Comida repetitiva y de mediana calidad. No estaban abiertyos todos los restaurantes de especialidad.
