I stayed at the Sol Palmeras between 28th April and 5th May 2011 with my partner. This was my first experience at an all inclusive resort and I'm happy to say it was a good one! Initially from reading reviews I was a little sceptical however the week spent at the hotel was enjoyable and comfortable.
Our room was on the 4th floor. It was clean and stocked with fresh water. Noris, our maid, was friendly and made beautiful towel creations every day which was a nice touch.
The hotel is clean and although the buffet may not be to everyone's tastes, you can always find something you like. I avoided the attempts at British food as it wad nothing like home (obviously) but the fresh fish grilled to order was delicious.
The pool and beach areas were beautiful. The pool bar, although sometimes busy, had good service.
We took advantage of the excursions which were very good. The Havana & Pinar del Rio trip is a must (195.00 CUC pesos) as well as the Crucero del Sol (catamaran trip with dolphin interaction 101 CUC pesos) These were booked through our hotel rep but there are desks in the lobby that also sell excursions the prices are the same. There is also internet access, 2 pesos for ten minutes, although the internet is slow!
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and it was a shame we were only there for a week as I'd love to have stayed longer! Thank you Sol Palmeras it wad great!
