Beautiful beach!

We stayed at the Barceló Solymar from March 30 - April 6, 2016. This was my second time at the Solymar and my boyfriend's first time in Varadero. The hotel was very clean, the staff very friendly and helpful and the best part was the warm weather (37 degrees Celsius), powder soft white sand and incredible turquoise waters. The hotel is in a great location - so close to town. The food was good - ate at the buffets for breakfast, lunch and some dinners (the grill stations in the morning make fresh eggs - scrambled, omelets, etc. and for lunch and dinners they grill up fresh shrimp, fish, chicken, beef & pork), wide variety - no reason for anyone to go hungry. They have lots of breads, salads, fruits, crepe station, etc. Because it was my second time at the Barcelo, we were able to pick 3 a la carte restaurants (chose the Mexican, seafood and Japanese - all delicious) and were able to eat at the seafood restaurant for lunch - again great food. We ate off the resort twice - once in Havana at El Canonazo (not far from the fortress) - it's a tucked away restaurant which is very quaint with amazing food - chose the platter for two - wide variety of lobster, shrimp, fish, etc. and then at The Cave (also known as La Gruta del Vino) - amazing small restaurant inside a cave which seats around 20 people. Had the lobster and shrimp - which were huge and so delicious. The staff and owners were super friendly - they gave my boyfriend a Cohiba cigar and we signed our wine bottle to go up on the cave wall. This place is a must if you are in Varadero. While in Havana we took in the show at the Tropicana - a must see. What an amazing show. Loved our trip to Cuba - beautiful country with lots of history (going into Havana is a must) with incredibly friendly people. Will return!
