The hotel was great. Dania at the front desk was fantastic. Celestino, the golf cart valet was fabulous. He was quick and took care not to hit any bumps along the way as he could see that I was limping when we first arrived. He always gave us a weather forecast and told us about the events going on the...

This was relaxing couples vacation. We had not been to this hotel before but we are familiar with the Meliã brand. This resort in particular (or perhaps it was the time of year) seemed to be a popular spot for retirees. This made our stay slightly less enjoyable as the hotel staff worked hard at taking care of this larger...

Stayed at the Sol Palmeras in November. Check in was a bit of a hassle. We were first in line but it took over half an hour as there was only one girl doing her best with a difficult guest in front of us. Four employees at the Check out desk with nothing to do... would have thought one or...

We stayed here for 7 nights whilst visiting Cuba. The hotel was good but not fantastic. Personally I tried to avoid going into the main building as it felt like a shopping centre with the smell of water kept indoors from the indoor water feature. However most of the bars are in here. The main Buffett restaurant was ok, lots...

The Sol Palmeras was a wonderful resort on all levels. The staff, the accommodations, the beach, the activities. Staff definitely went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure your comfort. The resort offered many specialty food restaurants that were all of great quality.
