Over the last 5-6 years, I said “last time
in Cuba” a lot of time. It was always a mess. As the price was fair, I gave another last chance, this time Varadero.
I travel 4-5 weeks under the sun per year even during the pandemic and I also know that Cuba is different as they are a third world country.
Sol Varadero beach is a very small resort that was renovated recently. Renovated recently by cubans so don’t expect too much.
Beach is fantastic, lot of chairs, no need to rush for one.
Rooms are fully renovated. Shower is big and there is hot water and pressure!!!! First time in Cuba for me there is always water and hot water at all time. Very clean. Maid very nice.
As for the food, its cuban food so expect nothing even less then nothing and it will be fine. they try their best but they have nothing.
pool was closed 1-2 days. the water was not clean. i would say its the worst thing on the resort.
take note that during weekend, there is a huge number of cubans coming for the weekend! if you have the chance to do your excursions during the weekend you could save some times away from them.. specially at the buffet…
Couldn’t of asked for a better week!

My boyfriend and I spent a lovely week at Sol Varadero Beach. We were recommended this hotel by a friend and we’re not disappointed at all! The resort is very clean and newly renovated. Everyone is very friendly. If you have the chance to meet Johana, make sure you say hi! She is very kind and welcoming and always offered to help us during our trip. She’s a ray of sunshine! I am vegetarian and had no problem eating at every restaurant and buffet. The buffet was always opened every night which was nice. The beach was beautiful and the different animations during the day were fun. We will definitely be back!

Hotel is well renovated and clean. The staff started to be friendly on our second day. Beach is really quiet no need to get up at dawn to reserve chairs. The big problem here is that the buffet is closed every other night for supper . This was not explained during our check in. Reception just told us they had reservations for us the next day at the Italian restaurant at 9:30 pm! Kind of late for us so when we showed up at the buffet at 7:30 pm we realized it was closed. We were not the only upset guests. The next morning we spoke to the Sunwing representative and he told us he had just learned about this himself. I can understand not having all the à la carte restaurants open but to close the buffet every other night is crazy.
Excellent 4* clean hotel

This hotel has been fully renovated and is 16 years of age and older. More tourists than locals and the grounds are very well kept. Yoan at the lobby bar, Yolanda and the staff at the snack bar are amazing, always serving with a smile. The entertainment lady, I forget her name but she will ALWAYS play music you request and make sure people participate in a great way. The customer service manager nordladies is exceptional..I can't say enough great things about her. Just a beautiful person inside and out. Lorena at front desk made sure we were always taken care of and you could see she loves her job same with Hugo.
I didn't catch all the staff names but even the Sunwing rep was wonderful!!
Only issue was there was no vodka for most of our stay and we had some issues with the room and towels and the pool being out of service BUT as soon as it was brought to their attention it was fixed immediately!!!
I would highly recommend this resort and WILL RETURN SOON!!!
Our maid was super sweet too!!! We felt homesick after visiting ROC arenas Doradas that we were going to go home but then we got transferred here and we felt at home... Sooooo much that we were very sad to leave.

This resort is amazing, the food was pretty good, drinks were great and the workers are amazing, they are all so nice and caring. Sherley and Alejandro are the most friendly and outgoing workers there. They really do make sure you are having the best vacation ever. I would for sure go back to this resort for another vacation.
