Barcelo Solymar- April 2010

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

My first day on the forum!! I am just starting to plan my wedding in april 2010 (14-15) at Barcelo Solymar. I see that it doesnt look like one of the most poular resorts in Varadero.. is there any reason for this? I have never been to Cuba before so I am not sure.

 

Is there anything I should be aware of about getting married there? I understand that all I need is my passport and Birth certificate and no translation is required since this is my first time ever being married.

 

Does everyone on here book through a travel agency or has anyone ever just booked individually online. I have a lot of family back east as well in the west so we are flying from all over and the cheapest rates seem to be for us to book all online on our own and flights are only spaced one day apart for some! I spoke to a travel agency but I found the rates to expensive and this the easiest way to do it!

 

I emailed the Hotel to speak to someone about booking the wedding. Are they usually pretty good at replying to your e-mail in a timely fashion!!!?? Lots of questions I know but I am ready to get this ball rolling :)

 

Thanks,

 

Jules

Barcelo is really great and wedding coordinator is super nice. Very laid backwink.gif

It's pretty popular resort - they have a wedding there everyday. Gazebo is nice and big and surroundings are pretty as well. We spending few weeks of April in Vardero every year - weather is great as well.

 

Resort is close to the town and basically you can walk there - which is great:)

 

you can see pictures from this resort here , this was a very short wedding coverage, unfortunately we didn't went for a session out of the resort - but you can see resort very well (password Varadero):

If you've never been to Cuba before you'll love any resort you stay in. You'll be so amazed with the Cuban people and listyle that you won't notice most things more experienced Cubagoers notice.

 

Two things I would recommend for that resort...

1) BRING BUG SPRAY! There are a lot of mosquitos there, especially April/May. We got eaten alive when we went in May. The Barcelo is a beautiful resort with tons of folliage and therefore tons of mosquitos.

2) The service at the bars, especially at the lobby bar, is notoriously slow. I definitely recommend bubba kegs. At least you can stock up when you finally get service.

 

The great thing about the Bracelo is that you're walking distance from almost everything. So pack your walking shoes!

 

Congrats and have a great time!!! :)

Congrats on choosing a great resort, you'll love where the Solymar is geographically on the Varadero strip... Walking distance to town and to a favourite tourist hot spot Calle 62! Enjoy!

    • Hello, I am getting married after 2 months. I and my fiancee were searching for a beautiful spot for our pre-wedding photoshoot. And finally, we have selected Algonquin Park. We have decided to do some adventurous activities there. In the video, we would like to show our moments of trying adventures together. Especially, hiking and canoeing. It would be really fun. We have found a suitable trail for hiking in Algonquin Park. Had anyone tried hiking there? What would be the estimated amount for it? Please do share it here. Thanks!
    • Anybody getting married at the fives beach hotel in playa del carmen in 2020? I'd like to connect with others as we are experiencing some issues and misinformation with the karisma transition. Hoping we can all help each other!
    • Pronovias Pria Wedding Dress. Sweetheart neckline with beautiful soft lace detailing throughout. Low lace back with button detailing. This dress falls beautifully on your silhouette and is so comfortable to wear. Bought a size 16 for my big hips, but tailored it to fit more like a 12-14 (in street clothes I'm a size 10). If you're looking for a destination wedding dress that won't make you sweat all night, this one is for you! I absolutely loved this dress and will miss never wearing it again.  Alterations: Ribbon empire bow on belt at waist was removed and replaced with a sparkly applique. Train was removed. More pictures are available. Paid $1400 Cdn, asking for $500 - it's in good shape (looks like new with no markings!) and has already been professionally cleaned. 
    • My daughter is getting married in Punta Cana on May 23rd, 2020. The hotel is charging a fortune for centerpieces that I can make it easily. I need a contact of wholesale florist please. To buy directly. If anyone could help I appreciate
