Barcelo Solymar Arenas Blancas Resort Varadero Reviews
Enjoyable Stay in Varadero Jan 11, 2017
December 1 to 8, 2016
Since we enjoyed ourselves so much in Varadero last year, we wanted to go back, but this time we stayed at the All-Inclusive BARCELO SOLYMAR ARENAS BLANCAS RESORT. We actually had access to two great resorts - the 525 room Barcelo Solymar and the 358 room Barcelo Arenas Blancas.
We had room #4021 at Barcelo Arenas Blancas where it was a short walk to the beach and just steps away to the swimming pool.
We booked through our agent Kelly at Sears and it was with SUNWING with departures from Windsor, Ontario. flight is directly to Varadero and it is only three hours.
Upon arrival in Varadero, we were picked up by the tour bus and brought to our resort.
Our room had two double beds, Satellite TV, mini fridge stocked with beer, sodas and water, in-room safe (no Charge), iron and ironing board and hair dryer.
The resort had one Buffet restaurant and three a la carte Restaurants - LA PAGODA - Oriental - RANCHON CARIBE - Seafood - EL MARIACHI - Mexican (closed when we were there).
We mostly ate at the Buffet Restaurant - LOS JARDINES. For the most part the food was good , with lots of various meats including chicken, pork and fish dishes. Lots of vegetables and fruits including guava, pineapple, papaya, melon and a dessert and ice cream bar. Our favourite waitress was Yolaine. She was excellent.
The Beach area was beautiful with lots of loungers. Shade areas were at a premium so Hans would get up early before breakfast and claim a couple of chairs by putting some towels there. I really cant take laying in the hot sun all day.
The entertainment was just OK. For the first few days we were there, Cuba was in mourning at the death of Fidel Castro. There was no music or entertainment for the first four days of our stay.
But overall, we had a good vacation and I would love to go back there again next year.
