Hotel Club Tropical
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Charming hotel, excellent staff. Right on the beach. Music is little loud but stops at 11 pm so you can sleep. It is very clean and solo traveler will find this as perfect choice. Keep up a good work.
After reading all the bad reviews on this hotel i kept an open mind. And it was not bad at all. Rooms were clean and always had hot water. The a/c worked great. The staff was amazing. The Beach is beautiful. And the best of all it is right downtown so you can walk to all the shops or hop on the bus which costs 5 pesos that you can ride all day. The beer was cold and the drinks were plentiful never ran out. I would recommend that you bring a Bubba because the cups they serve the drinks in are really small. We went on two excursions the bus day trip to Havana was an great adventure learned alot of history about Havana. Which is a very beautiful and historical city. It cost us only 57 pesos, if you want to book it go through your airline rep they got us a good deal.We also we on the Catamaran Cruise which includes swimming with the dolphins , snorkeling and a beautiful lunch on the island of Cayo Blanco where they served lobster, crab , shrimp and so many more items that were not avaliable at the hotel. And we only paid 87 pesos it was well worth every penny. They had shows by the pool every night starting at 9pm and ending by 11. After that we hit the bars along the strip. The Beatles Bar is the best it played rock and roll.Dont forget to bring toilet paper for when you are off the resort cause they charge you a peso for it. I would definitely go back to Club Tropical is a very nice hotel and suited the 3 of us just fine.
I started with the internet issue because they lied on 3 spots about this. On their website it says the hotel has wifi. Sunwing tells people this hotel has internet and their Europpean site says they have internet. At the hotel in the lobby they have a sign that says wifi is 10 CUC per hour. I figured it is expensive but I needed it so I went to reception to pay. THEY DO NOT HAVE INTERNET ACCESS LET ALONE WIFI! THEY HAVE NEVER HAD INTERNET IN THIS HOTEL!when I asked about it the reception lady said: " you don't need internet....you are on bah-kei-shon (vacation)". When I showed her the sign beside her that says there is wifi in the hotel she said there is wifi 9 blocks away!!!So I had to go to the ancient internet office and spend over 3 hours waiting in the line to have access to a dialup connection. My work requires me to be connected even during vacation.Apart from the internet issue, Varadero is becoming a hub for elderly alcoholics who chainsmoke by the pool. Quality of service is in decline and there is hardly any live Cuban music to be heard. The highlight of the stretch is a loud junky bar named The Beatles. I have been to Cuba over 20 times and now I travel to other destinations. I think being lied to about internet and other items is unacceptable.
We have been to Varadero more than 10 times now. And this is the first time we chose a smaller hotel. The truth is, sure it was small, only 145 rooms, one restaurant, 1 pool. But, we have never been treated so greatly. Our arrival was at 3am and the receptionist Maritza was the best, welcoming us,and treating us like family. Our room was clean and available as soon as we got there. We made great friends,and for sure we will be back. We enjoyed the quietness, ( the pool activities after 9 pm were noisy but it was great to see the fun) The beach was clean, and chairs always available. We had a great time 🍻
First of all this is rated at 2 stars by Sunwing so if you expect more than that then stay somewhere else. What drew us to this hotel is that it is downtown and on the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. Granted the more expensive hotels farther out on the peninsula have nicer rooms,bigger pools,better entertainment etc. they don't compare with the Cuban atmosphere derived from downtown. Our entertainment was walking the streets (very safe) visiting the different cafes, people watching, classic car watching and soaking up the Cuban way of life. You won't find luxury hotels downtown (maybe a couple farther down but farther removed from the action )but scouting out the different ones I would recommend Club TropicalWe were in the main building street side, great for people watching,classic car watching, a little noisy at night with traffic but worth the view, sun in the morning, pleasant at nightFood was good, always something to eat and different grill every night Room was clean,bathroom very clean good pressure hot waterStaff - some friendly,some not so muchMaids did a tremendous job dailyDrinks- well drinks, bar mixes , beer cold. I did see,more expensive bottles of booze but didn't ask if they were non comp.Beach- beeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaauuuuuuutttttiiiiiiffffffuuuuulllllll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!and not overy busyPool- Ccccccccccccold!!!!I believe more social contact than big resortsI highly recommend this hotel for anyone that wants a clean,relaxing,sun soaking, Cuban atmosphere but isn't expecting 5 star amenities at 2 star prices (and remember star ratings are only about amenities)
