Our Opinion

Some tour operators may rate this hotel 4 stars, which it is not. If your budget permits, we would suggest picking a better resort. Be Live Experience Varadero is an older property with some refurbishments. The beach here is excellent, like most of Varadero, and the location is close to town which some people like. Only recommended if the price is right and for travelers who don't mind basic accommodations and facilities.


Travelers return year after year to this hotel, located close to the heart of the action of Varadero. Activities abound for all ages, including water sports, dance lessons and Spanish lessons. Or surrender to the Latin rhythms pulsating in the on-site disco and dance the night away.
Location: Beachfront, 30 minutes from Juan Gualberto Gomez International Airport, 10 minutes to downtown Varadero.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Lorne A : Saint Colomban
Best pizza in Varadero

If you are looking for a resort that has a party atmosphere this is the place. It is a large resort with 7 floors and a bar on the 9th floor. There are also private homes for rent and also small 3 story villas. The bar has a beautiful 360 degree view of the ocean and bay. The hotel is older and is under renovations. The lunch restaurant by the beach has the best pizza and Lily the waitress always has a smile. The main buffet is average and the selection is good. The al a carte restaurants are very good. My room on the 7th floor had a great view. The air conditioning was good but a little noisy. The bed was king size and comfortable. The shower took a while to get hot water but the pressure was good. The staff as always does their best to help the guests have the vacation they deserve.. Would I go back, yes !!

This is at best a 2 star hotel at most so do not expect anything else. It is very old and dated. The swimming pool looks good on the surface but there is a lot of small debris at the bottom. I think this hotel is over priced. It is worth staying in a higher star hotel and paying a little more to have that basic standard. Beach is beautiful but littered with cigarette butts and obviously not well maintained. And you should be aware if you are a non smoker that there are plenty of smokers everywhere at this resort.

We went for a nice/decent hotel, but mainly looking for a superb amazing beach and we found both If you want to find fault, you will find it, however, we knew what we were going to and got exactly what we paid for. In our opinion it's a decent 3 star hotel we all pros and cons that you can find in most Cuban hotels: nice staff but poor services compared to European or US standards.We check 5 rooms before finding the “better” one.. or the less “worst” (depends on you point of view and how you look at things). Rooms furniture and their maintenance are poor and outdated, food is basically the same everyday but you never get starving. If you are looking for luxury and fancy place go somewhere else, but if you are looking for a quite decent place, located in the best part of Varadero beach… this is your place.

Old and not well maintained hotel, I don't recommend

The resort was mostly empty no many tourists, nobody was answering the phone at the reception, we couldn't have the room until 4pm, it tooks 30 minutes to get the keys of the room, nobody was bringing us our luggage like the reception told us, the person who was taking care of the luggage was not there, after waiting 20 Minutes we went back to the reception because they don't answer the phone.The resort is old, some places are ugly and dirty.The buffet was small, no much choice, the food was not good, the fruits were not ready, the pasta were dry, the deserts doesn't taste good.At the bar there is choice for drinks we ask for a mojito that was on the menu but they didn't had !The beach is very nice.The room doesn't smell good, you can't choice the temperature in your room, AC on or off so either you are hot either you are freezing.The seat near the reception are old and dirty, the same in the room. The beds are ok but the pillows are not comfortable, very old.We have been to "be live" Hôtel in punta cana, it was so much nicer that we couldn't believe that the one in valadero was so old and bad looking.We paid $105 which is a good price but even in the us for this price you get a so much better prestation. We won't come back and don't recommend to stay there !

Great deal, affordable, great beach location, clean room...

Hotel reviewMy husband and I were spending our one year anniversary, as soon as we walked in, we were greeted with smiles and friendly treatment that made us feel welcomed and happy. Our room was lovely with an ocean view that was breathtaking, clean and wonderful. We almost didn't want to leave the room the whole week. The beach location was amazing. Arletis was great in accommodating us to make sure we had all we needed to have a perfect time for our one year anniversary. We already booked our next trip to stay there again in November. We can't wait. See you soon :)))
