Barceló Solymar Arenas Blancas Resort


  • Lots of restaurant and pool choices

  • Affordable


  • The young, party-hardy crowds can keep you up well into the night
  • Must love a bustling atmosphere

Fodor's Review

If an active beach vacation is what you're looking for, this centrally located, really big, all-inclusive resort combines two properties that share a plethora of pools, restaurants, and activities. The Arenas Blancas side has a striking interior courtyard adorned with hanging plants that fall for the length of the four-story construction, along with newer, more contemporary rooms than the older Solymar side. This is a busy complex, attracting families with kids of all ages, as well as younger crowds who mass at the property's main bar every night. Close to the center of town, it's also the ideal location if you want to get away from the crowd and explore on your own.
