This all-inclusive property has an authentic Cuban feel and boasts tropical grounds leading to the adjacent white sand beach. Nearby is Varadero’s 18-hole golf course, the Plaza America shopping centre and a nightclub, whilst on-site there is a vast array of activity options, characterful bars and restaurants with a range of international dining choices. The property is colourful inside and out and has a charming and natural feel. It’s a great choice for families as well as couples, groups, honeymooners and wedding parties; no wonder then that Trip Advisor reviewers rank it in the Top 10 of Vardero hotels.
The grounds at the Sol Palmeras are impressive to say the least; a cultivated jungle with dense tropical vegetation and palms set in lawns between the paths. There are two good-sized pools with bridges and an island with a thatched bar. An attractive restaurant with wooden furniture is also under a thatched roof for that authentic beach feel. Heading towards the beach front guests will find a small bar adjacent to a sandy area, hammocks between the palm trees and the children’s play area and mini-club. Various activities are available throughout the grounds and there is an additional bar at the beach so you can quench your thirst without having to stray too far from all the activities on offer wherever you are.

Standard rooms sleep up to 3 with 2 twin beds or 1 king-size bed, private facilities, air-conditioning, mini-fridge, TV and balcony or terrace. Junior suites, suites, bungalows and suite bungalows are also available; in addition to the facilities of the standard rooms, upgraded accommodations afford a preferential location, iron and board, coffee machine and umbrellas (though hopefully you won’t be needing those).

Varadero is a great resort whether you want to visit Cuba’s infamous capital city of Havana or just enjoy a wonderful beach holiday in a fabulous location. It is a superb beach retreat set on a peninsula with stunning views and, as it is the most established resort in the area, it has a wealth of activities to tempt. The white sands of the 21 km beach stretch from the north edge of the Hicacos Peninsula and go on for miles; well 21 km! When you fancy a change from the hotel or beach, modern downtown Varadero has lots on offer from shops and street markets to restaurants and from leafy parks to boat trips. The resort is also only around a 35 minute transfer from the airport so it won’t be long before you are lounging by the pool, cocktail in hand.
