Amy Adejokun Section editor

With its 407 rooms and 200 bungalows, the Sol Palmeras is a club for families who will be seduced by a great activity programme and a beautiful beach, however the old facilities are quite deplorable.

    Location 7.0 /10

    Nearby the hotels Melia Las Americas and Melia Varadero, the Sol Club Palmeras is located a few miles away from Varadero (10 mn) and 21.7 miles away from the international airport (40 min). It faces the sea of the Straits of Florida on the north coast of the Hicacos peninsula. Outside the three Melia hotels, the surroundings are rather bare.

    Accommodation 7.00 /10

    407 rooms and 200 bungalows fitted out with a balcony or a terrace are the set of rooms of this impressive hotel. All the rooms have air conditioning, satellite TV, radio, safe (extra), telephone for international calls, fridge, 110 volts power plugs. They all have view of the sea, the gardens or the pool. Installed several metres away from the centre of the hotel, the bungalows have a kitchen area and a lounge room with a fan.

    Overview 7.00 /10

    Forming a semi-circle around a green garden, the Sol Club Palmeras, built in 1990, is a bit old. Its decoration alternates indoor and outdoor gardens, with giant ceramics and pottery. Arranged with care and originality, the wide area (100 000 m²), which separates the pool from the beach, is planted with palmtrees with stretched hammocks, flower beds and lives at the rhythm of children's frolics.

    Food and drink 7.00 /10

    The hotel includes two à la carte restaurants: chinese and italian, as well as a steakhouse-restaurant close to the pool. You can also eat at the main buffet, spacious, bright, sober, although a bit noisy, with a varied cuisine available. In the evening, meat, grilled fish, etc... Nothing is missing ! Besides, snack-bars are installed in the bungalow area. Five bars in all are available for you in the area of the hotel, two of them are snack bars (one is open 24 hours a day).

    Beach 7.50 /10

    It is quite wide in comparison to the beaches of the neighbouring hotels and it has dried and plaited palm leaf sunshades. There are deckchairs available (for an extra charge).

    To know

    Here the clientele is international. It is possible to have lunch or dinner in the two Melia hotels nearby, they belong to the same complex ( Melia Las Americas and Melia Varadero).

      The Melia Varadero is a large hotel with 490 rooms on five floors, on the sea front. It has plenty of facilities, but it does lack charm.

      The Melia Las Americas de Varadero is 4 miles from the town centre. Its setting makes it one of the most luxurious hotels in Varadero. Note to golfers: an 18 hole golf course designed by Less Forber.
