Our Opinion
A basic 2 1/2 star property with limited facilities. In Varadero we usually recommend that travelers stay at a 4 star minimum, with the exception of a few decent 3 stars resorts. This is not one of them! If you are on a budget and looking for a decent 3 star, try the Palma Real or Barlovento over this one.

Located directly on the beach, this 3 star resort offers guests privacy & relaxation in a stunning setting.

Location: On the beach in Varadero, 40 minutes from Varadero airport.

OK but full of thieves!

Stayed January 7-14. This hotel is owned and operated by the Cuban government which means that there's a difference in service and quality compared to a resort.Location is good as its on the main Avenue. Bathroom was modern and up to date. Lots of hot water. Bed was OK.No mould in room, bathroom or A/C unitBar staff over pour resulting in a lot of drunk people. Food is mediocre but its Cuba and its a 2** hotel. Dining room staff need training but they try. Lots of inexpensive and good restaurants close by. No Wi-Fi. Pool area is beautiful and well maintainedThe Activities/Animation manager (Randy) is very good at his job...motivates people to participate. Nightly acts were good.Overall the facility was about a 3/10HOWEVER.....My departure time was 7:25pm and I foolishly placed my suitcase in a "secure" area. When I got to the airport I had to open my suitcase and discovered that it had been ransacked and a number of items were missing including a sport watch that was in my shaving kit. I don't think I will stay here again.

Beautiful beach

stayed here for 7 days. my first trip to cuba and it was a wonderful vacation. If you want luxury then I think you need to go to a different country or maybe a 5 star resort. This hotel was totally fine for the price. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Everything is old and outdated but clean. Honestly the best features are the ocean is right there and the sand so white. The food is terrible but I was expecting that. You can always bring some snacks from home to help with the boring food. Varadero is a great town with lots to see . You can also hire a driver to take you to Havana. We did and it turned out to be a wonderful excursion. For my first vacation to cuba i was very happy and thought the hotel was great for the price. so i would have to say that i recommend it.

The only person i would recommend this hotel to is Katrina, Hurricane Katrina

Aside from the heavy handed joke in the title this hotel was Horrid. Before arriving to the hotel I had expectations of a tropical paradise. This place was as tropical as a skunk. The only tropical thing you may take away from this place is a tropical disease. Food unidentifiable, Diarrohea plentiful, Dining with swarms of flies, sleeping with reptiles, breath mould at night, sleeping on a rock, dry yourself with a dirty towel. WIFI --> non existantGym --> flooded with water to ankle level, has one machine that looks rusty and no weightsBeach --> practically not owned by the hotel but hotel is nearbyCoffee --> disgrace for one of the best places in the world for coffeeNever Again. Please don't put yourself through this experience especially at 130 CUC per night. All inclusive ?? you will be all eating all excluded if you book. Oh and the first hotel where i had to store my money underneath the mattress.. There is no safe.

Not very Tropical

Me and my partner arrived to Hotel Club Tropical in the end of December to celebrate the New Year. When we arrived the reception staff was busy chatting to each other and completely ignored us. A few minutes later we were finally served and offered a room key. I can describe our room as a “very scary place”. Dirty walls and floor, broken bed, old furniture, cold shower (no warm water in our room), the bathroom was tiny and dated, towels had a terrible strong smell. Later we discovered a large lizard living in our room ... my partner had to escort him out. In the morning we went to check the restaurant for breakfast. The food looked like it was tortured before it was cooked. It definitely didn’t look fresh and tasty. We were too scared to eat anything from the buffet so we requested a homemade omelet, juice and a coffee. We noticed that our waiter was using a floor brush not just to clean the floor but also to clean the tables after guests left. We immediately finished eating our food and left. Later in the day both myself and my partner developed a food poisoning, it really ruined our plans as we had excursions booked which we had to cancel. We found the hotel staff very rude and unhelpful. We ended up leaving this hotel and staying in a local air b&b which was a lot better in terms of standards and it only costed us a third of the price that Hotel Club Tropical was charging.I normally don’t post negative reviews but on this occasion I felt that I should share my experience with Club Tropical to help other travellers. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed for 4 nights in this hotel. Food was very similar every day , but on New year party they decorate tables and had a better menu choice. Room clean, but towel didn't be change every day. Juices in the bar from powder and water from tap(so thats isn't fresh juice Iike they call). If you just wanna get drunk that is perfect place, but for families with kids not really. Breaches are clean and sandy. I would say 6/10.
