Absolutely Stunning Beach

My fiancé and I traveled to the Barcelo Solymar from June 27 to July 4th , 2015. When I first read the reviews for this resort, I was pretty terrified of what to expect when I arrived, but it is not nearly as bad as people have been making it out to be … some people you can just never please. Was it perfect … no … was it still enjoyable… absolutely. Let me start by saying the resort is a little run down in some areas, but not to the magnitude some make it out to be. I will say that they are making efforts to be try and update / maintain their facilities. While we were there, we seen multiple different locations in the building being painted, new shower heads being put on the outdoor showers, the pool bar was renovated, fixed up and reopened while we were there and all the loungers by the pool appeared to be brand new. When we first arrived, the check-in was quick maybe a 10 minute wait, and the lady was very nice and polite. We were originally put into room 1260, unfortunately the air conditioner was not working, and because it was so hot we went right back down to reception and they happily changed our room to 1221 which was much better, the air worked pretty good and the bed was clean. I do have to mention that in our first room when I was checking the bed for bed bugs (which I thankfully did not find and), I did however notice quite a large white stain on the red box spring (you can take a guess at what it might have been … eeeek). The rooms are older but they are fine, our couch was black leather, and it was all torn up so they just threw a sheet on it to cover it … not very good for first impressions, but we are easy going so it didn’t bother us much. The maids were good, clean rooms but she only left hand towels to shower with, which was weird, I would recommend that larger towels are left in the room to shower with. The food as with most Cuban destinations was not the greatest, but they did put on a decent spread of food. My biggest complaint about the buffet was the lack of air conditioning, it was very warm and muggy every time we ate in the buffet whether it be breakfast lunch or dinner, and the doors were always open so flies would get in. We only got to try the Italian restaurant and it was ok, when we tried for Mexican and Japanese’s on other nights it was closed, but we didn’t try very hard to get the nights they were open so not a big deal. The positives of the trip was that the staff was friendly and the beach was absolutely gorgeous, probably the nicest beach I have ever seen. The crowd was a mixture of families with children and young adults. We are 29 and 33 so the noisy partying didn’t bother us much but it was definitely louder (at times) than most other resorts I have travelled to. Overall, if you are looking for luxury, fine dining and a quiet relaxing vacation, this is probably not the best resort for you, however if you are young and aren’t picky this is a reasonably priced decent resort. We had a good vacation, and for the price this is a good stay.
