Food: I don't know why people say the food in Cuba is bad. My experience at the buffet at Sol Palmeras was nothing but positive. There was the usual omelet station and pasta station, but there was usually some type of meat being carved, usually pork or turkey; in addition there was fish station with 2 kinds of fresh fish,...

This was my 8th time in Cuba and have visited several different resorts in Varadero over the years. This was one of the best resorts we have been to. I would give this a 4.5 star but that was not an option. It is rare to not find something wrong with a resort in Cuba, but this was one of...

Just got back from a 1-week vacation at Sol Palmeras with a group of recently retired friends. We had a great time. The staff was lovely. The resort was clean + well-kept. The food was very good (the buffet was repetitive, but lots of selection + good quality). The beach was glorious. Service was prompt + friendly, even if you...

Returned yesterday from our 2-week vacation. Great resort, perfect location, great food and nice friendly staff. Our one bedroom bungalow (229) was perfect. Thanks to Jorge Enrique and Ada Nerys at the buffet restaurant and housekeeper Myladie (sorry re: the spelling) for their excellent service. We are planning to return next year. I would recommend this resort. SamC

We just returned from 2 weeks in Varadero Cuba at the Melia Sol Palmeras all inclusive. We had a great stay in one of the small bungalows on site, rather than the main hotel. We'd recommend these bungalows, but try to get one close to the hotel (especially if disabled) as you can be placed a long way off. We...
