Sol Palmeras 4, Varadero: reviews
The vast majority of Russians liked the hotel. There are no special complaints about the number of rooms. Many note not quite new furniture and somewhat modest furnishings, but this is not an obstacle to normal living. Check-in is fast. Many of our compatriots advise not to book expensive apartments, because even the standards in this hotel are quite good.
Moreover, if for some reason you don't like the number, you can change it for free.
As for nutrition, there is no dissatisfaction on this issue. There are a lot of fish and seafood, vegetables and fruits on the buffet. The only thing I didn't like was drinks, which are not provided during dinner. Based on reviews, tea/coffee and water machines are only included for breakfast and lunch. During dinner, drinks are served by waiters upon request.
The territory of the hotel is beyond praise. She is completely green. The main building has gazebos with sun loungers, hammocks are tied everywhere between palm trees. Many of ourcompatriots liked to lie and watch the palm trees sway.
The beach is a real "heavenly delight". If you move about two hundred meters from the noisy bar, it becomes less crowded, although all the main infrastructure is located there. There are plenty of sunbeds, but they need to be occupied early in the morning.
The vast majority of Russians highly appreciated the work of the staff. Regardless of whether a tip was left or not, the maids twisted funny figures out of towels every day during cleaning, changed the water and were always friendly. There is, however, dissatisfaction with some waiters, but these are rather the only cases.
The contingent of the hotel is Europeans. There are more and more Russians every year. Animation is everywhere - on the beach, in the pool, in the lobby bar. In the evenings, concerts and discos are organized with noisy dances and free cocktails.
In conclusion, we can say that if it were not for the long flight, judging by the reviews, most of our compatriots would return to this hotel as soon as possible.
