I stayed a week in 1994 during my honeymoon, when the hotel was named 'Sol Palmeras'.

We spent a fabulous week, enjoying the hotel amenities, the friendly staff and the superb location.

Unique Quality: Great views of the nearby sea and beaches.
Wonderful pool.
Excellent shows at nigth (in five laguages!!)
Quiet place!!!

Just returned from a week at Sol Elite Palmeras. Very nice hotel. Easy check in, friendly and helpful staff. Our room had a nice patio looking onto the pool and a short walk to the beautiful clean beach. Lots of choices for full meals or snacks.
We had dinner at the steak house,(not our favorite) Italian, Cuban, (my favorite) and Chinese. We were a group of 13, most of the evenings.
Buffet was plentiful with many choices.
Would certainly recommend this hotel

I stayed at the Sol Palmeras in 2006. A great all inclusive four/five star family orientated hotel. Very clean. Wonderfully friendly staff, Great pools, incredible beach and lots of Child Friendly activities.

An all round Great Experience. Would definitely stay there again.

Unique Quality: Pool Side Bar. Three In Hotel Bars. One Buffet Restaurant and three Specialty Restaurants. Offers a Bus to and from Varadero Airport and has a very unique free Shuttle train for getting around the property and to local shopping.

Sol Palmeras is a great complex. The staff are very friendly and the accommodation is good. Some fellow guests staying in the bungalows complained of insects in the bungalows, but there were none in the hotal. However the food is not that great, the buffet has a variety of food but it is cooked in an interesting way. Also it is the only restraunt that is not air conditioned. The other restraunts on site you have to book for but they do not serve the quality of food that you would expect of a similar restraunt at home.
There is a lot of poverty in Cuba and staff relay upon their tips. It is usual to give 1 or 2 pesos for a small service and to leave a 1 peso daily tip for the chambermaid.
If you have any spare clothes?shoes (even if used) or any cosmetics or shampoo (especially toothpaste or tampons) please do leave them either in your room or give them to your rep, they ensure that those in desperate need receive them.
If you 'roll your own' cigarettes take all papers, tips and tobacco with you as you cannot get them in Cuba.

It was simply called "Sol Palmeras" in 1993, so I assume it's the same hotel as Sol Elite Palmeras in the VT drop-down prompt.
Sol Palmeras is a hotel, which also has bungalows in its grounds. It borders onto a very good beach. Food was of a high standard, service was generally good. The rooms were excellent. The gardens were lush & well-maintained.
Can't remember how much it cost. I know it wasn't the cheapest in Varadero, but it was cheaper (& better value for money) than most Caribbean destinations.

Loved it enough to return three times this year! We enjoy the bungalow because the bedroom and livingroom are separate. Enjoyed the hummingbirds hovering by the patio. Had a lovely little dog that hungout with us one trip - sorry that we didn't find her again on the others. The servers in the steakhouse are awesome - especially Raulito - what a sweetheart. The chambermaids are also very sweet - we love coming into the room to find the beautiful towel swans! Barbara even taught me how to make my own - it is a great way to let Peter know I'm ready for another trip!

Unique Quality: The beach is incredible - very clean, warm, inviting.
