We have for this hotel for 4 weeks paid little and at home always said for the money it can't be but it was a lot of better than expected. The can but also because of the at our time of travel the hotel not fully booked and almost no tourists were there. The food in the main restaurant was really not bad and we had 4 weeks always good and food not just was, as we did in Varadero in hotels other things experienced. The two additional restaurants (Cuban kit …  read hotel review

A relatively large area in a catastrophic and moldy and dirty condition! The food an impertinence! I had almost the whole time about stomach problems! Only no ice cube take! Also the salad and all Sauces avoid! Too many all dishes lukewarm to cold! There were construction works right in the middle of the day in the lobby transacted. It was with color painted, accordingly was a smell problem, which is certainly not healthy was, the mold just repainted and …  read hotel review

The area is in need of a renovation. But the staff keep the area clean and complaints helpful. All are very much endeavored and friendly. Staff outside of the hotel are no persons pushy. Food: sufficient and always available in large diversity: meat to fish, salads and fruit. And it also tasted. Staff always return to the drinks. We recommend the theme restaurants, italian and cubanisch, as served. Beach: great beautiful sandy beach with beach bar Shopping: a few meters, and you can stroll. Understand the many bad reviews not. For us it was a beautiful holiday. Especially the buffet ... on christmas eve with candlelight was one of the major highlights. (sparkling wine, fish, meat, vegetables, fruit, serano ham, italian salami, etc.) Bewertung lesen

The Palma Real was the auftakthotel our selbstfahrerrundreise through completely Cuba. Unfortunately not a good start. Hard to find, arrival late at night, reception with 1 person occupied, although a queue with at least 10 visits stood there the receptionist but had the peace and quiet away. Abgewirtschaftetes hotel from 'old time'. Room fragile and damp, no warm water (ice shower!) , breakfast well... We deliberately for Cuba our claims accordingly reduced but we were glad, only 1 time again and drive even if the Palma Real not the only bad hotel in our round trip holiday remained...

In february i spent two weeks in the Bellevue Palma Real spent. It is a 4 star plus hotel but beware = category, don't forget ☺ From the outside, and the bar at first i was not impressed. The facades have their best days behind itself and also the pool area needs a renovation. However, we had a surprisingly clean room, which cleaned thoroughly every day was. Furthermore, the maids were always a lovely decoration from hand towels. One may here but also never forget, that you are in a communist country, in which everything is still very backward is ..., and not in a 5 star luxury resort on the Maldives. In this respect, i must say, that many vacationers with the absolutely wrong expectations of a holiday in Cuba there travel. Here it would be necessary, good to inform.-) The food was although monotonous but of good quality and plentiful. Most of the waiters and the rest of the staff are friendly and warm. There is many excursions, the about the hotel or the tour operator. The security is through a high volume of securities guaranteed. Animation is every day available and is quite varied. The beach was wonderful, fine sandy beach and turquoise clear water. At the beach you can catamarans or enjoy snacks and drinks at the All-inclusive bar cool off. All in all we had a very nice vacation! Bewertung lesen
