I did a fair bit of research about the hotel before going so I kind of knew what to expect. The beach is absolutely amazing, best beach I've ever been to. When the waves weren't bad (we had a few windy days) you can snorkel right off the beach! Watch out for jellyfish though, the clear ones don't hurt you,...

This was my second trip to Cuba and it won't be my last. My family of 6 all loved this resort. The restaurants were amazing, not just for Cuba, but for anywhere else. The Buffet and 5 a la cartes were all excellent. We were booked into 2 bungalows which were very spacious and totally filled with character. They were...

This was my second time at Sol Palmeras (first time in 2001). This time we were a family with a small child so we elected to stay in a bungalow. I would only stay in a bungalow from now on as it was peaceful, private, spacious and got us to check out different areas of the spacious property. We ate...

I was a Sol Plameras from November 27 to December 5, 2016. Found the hotel very appealing. Suite was clean and attractive; Food was very good and above all the staff (to include from Managent to Reception) was friendly and professional. My experience has been nothing but excellent.

Check in was so easy, course it was just my husband and I. We were on the top (4th floor). Very quiet, even at our bed time 9:30! The view was at the opposite site of the pool ( front side of hotel) as we got to enjoy our morning coffee and watched the traffic, there was a tree that...

The greatest strength of Sol Palmeras as a resort is its staff. Very patient, very friendly and very helpful. No easy feat when confronted with a bus load of impatient western tourists. Food-wise there is huge choice on offer. The buffet offers a range of different cuisines, many dishes cooked fresh in front of you. Naturally, as the resort caters...

We stayed at the Melia Sol P for a few nights after 10 days travelling elsewhere in Western Cuba - after staying in Casas, private hotels, and government hotels of varying price points I thought we'd experienced a decent sampling of Cuban standard food and board and had prepared my expectations for the resort according. Unfortunately it seems I didn't...

The hotel was great. Dania at the front desk was fantastic. Celestino, the golf cart valet was fabulous. He was quick and took care not to hit any bumps along the way as he could see that I was limping when we first arrived. He always gave us a weather forecast and told us about the events going on the...
