Little slice of paradise

Dee148833 (Bobcaygeon) on Jan 25, 2023

I had the pleasure of staying here for 10 days in January. My sisters and their spouses were with me. The staff are amazing. Suzette and Jorge were wonderful. Karen went above and beyond. I have already booked a trip back. You won’t be disappointed coming here. All the a la cartes were great. The beach is everything you want on vacation. I loved every moment of my trip from the buggy rides to Varadero to the lazy days on the beach. Everyone is so accommodating. And don’t get me started on my massage it’s was like being in heaven. I will be back with my daughter and grand babies on march 3-10 2023. Cant wait!!! Yours Diane

Cant Wait to Get Back Here

Cubatravelled (Wetaskiwin, Canada) on Jan 19, 2023

We stayed in a bungalow (3507) at the Solymar from Nov 26 to Dec 10 and are headed back Feb 4-11 with our son, and his wife along with our 7 year old grandson. Room was in a nice location almost on Arenas Blancas property just across the pool from the stage. King bed was comfortable and there was very hot water to shower with each day. Meals were good with no shortages of eggs, bread, or butter, that people from other resorts were having problems with. Wine was not available for meals in the buffet but there was wine at the a-la-cartes. There was less variety at the buffet than our last visit here in 2019, but enough to keep a bit of a change each day. The quality of the food was fine and was kept warmer than we have found other times. We went to each of the 3 a-la-cartes one time and were invited to the special dinner for repeat clients. The Cuban, International, and special dinner were very good with the Italian a bit below expectations. All the staff we were in contact with were friendly and helpful. Orelsis, Jose from Solymar buffet, Dimaris from Solymar lobby bar and coffee counter, Esteban, Juan, Jose, Iris from the Arenas pool bar, Latharo from the Arenas Lobby bar, and Therisita from PR who keeps all the rooms organized. We didn't know what to expect with all the shortages happening in Cuba but from listening to other travelers at the airport and uptown this hotel had very few of the supply shortages that happened at others. The atmosphere here with all the walkways and palm trees along with the closeness to the boulevard across the street make this our "go to" hotel in Cuba.
