... lady pulled the knob off when she shut the door too quickly. A young man showed up to fix it, but it was just junk so he replaced it. We wonder which guestroom is missing a door knob.
Besides lounging on the beach and playing in the warm water, Miguel and I have taken some long walks up and down the town. Most of the homes are in dire need of repair and many of the locals seem lost. Cuba provides each citizen with a ration card that ...
We are in Cienfuegos. I am ending my day at the Hotel Jagua in Room 606, eight doors down from Room 614 where Castro slept on the evening of August 18, 1960. But I am getting ahead of my story.
The day began with breakfast at the Hotel Melia Varadero which I mention only because they have not one, but two enormous buffets. For our morning activities, we drive back to Matanzas, passing the only golf course in Cuba-nine holes. One of the men in the ...
... be without dancing. The Cubans, mostly the women were not shy about asking the tourists to dance. Anna must have thought that the party wasn't livening up quickly enough. She grabbed my shoulders, called her father to come in front of me; in a minute she had started 'a train'. Just think, a conga line of thirty or so, mostly youngish Cubans and mostly oldish Smithsonian tourists all having a wonderful time. Now that's a people-to-people ...
... are more luxurious, and all inclusive resorts and tourists are everywhere. The farther East of Varadero you go, the more luxurious the all inclusive resort until Cuba is no more than an absentee landlord. People come here for sun, sand and surf and they are not disappointed. While on the main street in Varadero, we met (or perhaps he met us) a cigar salesman. He asked us where we were from (a normal opener) and then asked us if we were interested in cigars. I wanted to ...

Our stay in Sandals was the wonderful gift of Janet (Zoe`s mum), it is by far the nicest place we`ve stayed on our trip so far, well at least when it comes to comfort. The bed was immense especially when you consider that we`d been staying in a tent for a month, in fact I think the bed was probably bigger than ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sol Sirenas Coral Resort Varadero
I recently came back from my vacation in Cuba at the Sol Coral-Sirenas resort. It was absolutely my WORST vacation ever!The resort is rated a 4 star, and should only be rated 2 if that. (The pools and beach are nice). The rooms on the other hand....my sheets had hair on it (that weren't mine!). The curtains and lamp shades were hugely stained. Plumbing issues throughout. Balcony door didn't lock and the room was constantly enveloped in a musty smell. My suggestion, pay an extra $100 and go to a 5 star! Yuck!
We just got bak from Sol Sirenas Coral ( Sol Club Coral and Sol Club Las Sirenas joined to make Sol Sirenas Coral) We got bak 1 week ago and our vacation was wonderful. We left from Toronto Airport , flights on time everything was perfect arrived there at about 10:30 a.m local time and as soon as we stepped outside the view was breathtaking. Palmtrees all around 25 degrees in mid day not himid at all, perfect weather. We were taken to the hotel about 20-25 minutes away since we made several stops to drop others off at their hotels. The resort itself is very beautiful. There are 2 hotels joined together and no matter in which one you stay, they are both very beautiful not to mention you have access to both and all facilities since it is an All Inclusive resort. We got our room at about 12 noon and it was very beautiful, clean, nicley arranged towels, and everything was very nice. Our maid did a good job throughtout the week aranging towels as swans and leaving little presents as well as notes. ( dont forget to tip!!!!!! about $5 a week) Lobby was beautiful LOTS of vegetation!!!!!!!!! and many restaurants to choose from. Despite what others have said about the A la Carte restaurants which need reservations, the food is EXCELLENT!!!!! even the chineese which was said to be bad NOT TRUE!! its very good!!! food was great , drinks even better unlimited any amount all day!, The pools are AMAZING, VERY big , not too deep but it gets deeper after, a free form pool with a swim up bar, music by the pool side surrounded with palmtrees everywhere. Make sure you take a walk to see the beautiful scenery, we took one every night, Sirenas resort has THE MOST BEAUTIFUL grounds i have ever seen.!!!! many paths, hammocks, jacuzzi's, trees!, plants, an occasionlal lizard but not to worry they run away when they see you!! The beach was wonderful, crystal clear water with a turquoise colour, bar on the beach, buffet on beach, snack bar, beach is cleaned daily, umbrellas and chairs and lined up every night. EVerything isomend it to anyone !!! honeymooners, family's, couples anyone with children, There are numerous activities for children with supervision at the mini club, and they even participate in one of the nighly entertainement shows at the theatre. There is a mini golf area, tennis courts, More that you ever wanted to overall there is not one bad thing to say about this resort!!!!!!!!!!!! GOOD LUCK!
Best trip ever
We went for our honeymoon May 99. Sun was hot people were great, food and accomidations were excelent! Going back soon.
Great for the price
For the amount of money we paid for this trip, it was most certainly worth it! Rooms were always clean, food was ok, but there wasn't that much to choose from. You have to make the reservations to the specialty restaurants early to make sure you'll get in. Beach and water were the best!!! Snorkelling, swimming (anything to do with water)- you'll be satisfied with. Take the snorkelling/horseriding tour - it is really nice. We are going back to Varadaro to get married this year.

We had an excellent time at the sol club coral(AUG 2002), booze was ever flowing and it just didn,t stop(didn't Carlos the barman have BIG muscles), all staff we great extremely helpful, food was really good for an all inclusive. Not enough brits there, but we are there to mix and mingle with other nationalities. Must be good as we are returning Aug 2003.My ONE fault was the night entertainment was too short, although was very good, really funny on occassions. I would advise anyone to visit. try it you will LUV IT!!!!!!!!!!
Crazy Crazy Crazy
It was one of the best times of my life. The rooms were great, the booze was flowing and the sun was shining. Also, the workers were very friendly and met all of our needs.
We were bumped from a 5 star to this 3 star , never any clean beach towels, no extra blankets for rooms, limited toilet paper in dirty public washrooms, staff resentful and nasty at times. leaky roof throughout lobby, food was o.k. at best
Thank goodness for the beautiful beach and sunny weather or we would have all cried. We saw many other properties on the strip that were so much nicer. Please choose carefully.
Stayed there for NewYear 2002.
May not be the greatest as far as food is concerned but well above average. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Beach and pool are clean and offer all amenities. Very good value for the $$.
Would return anytime.
Sol Club Coral Varedaro - Terrible food and Drinks
The rooms, pool and beach here are fantastic. However if you value you stomach, dont stay here. The food all tasted the same, dinner would become breakfast and their idea of a caeser salad involved, cabbage, oil and vinegar, carrots and 1 piece of anchovy. I would never come back to cuba again because of the food, and I'm not a picky eater. As for the extra trips, although we enjoyed them, they are expensive and the tour guides beg for more money at the end.
