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.

Pros & Cons

This is a 50 year old 3-star hotel, and very inexpensive for all inclusive. On the balance, it was a positive experience. The rooms are small relative to what you would expect today, but the bathroom has been renovated, it is clean and the 3/4 beds are adequate. Lots of hot water for showers. The kitchen tries to do the best with the little variety available to them, and there is always something pretty good to eat. The beach is amazing, and the location is excellent. It is great to be able to walk into town and poke around the shops, and easy to walk across to the Bahia de Cardenas. Of the negatives, it is very very noisy on at least 4/7 nights, Karaoke, entertainment, stuff & free rum. All that makes the street side rooms better if you like to get to sleep before midnight. We chose this hotel for the beach, location, and cost for a single room. All in all this group of ladies was not disappointed, Not sure I would return to Varadero, but if I do, I'd certainly consider this hotel again. p.s. bring cat food and you'll have a great time :)

Family Feeling

The hotel itself, is close in walking distance to where you all wish to go. Being a single person this really it not the right place to party. It is more for a family setting. Now there's nothing wrong that, the place is relaxing for all. young and older. Yes most of that staff is helpful and friendly. It is a smaller resort which is nice. Rooms are yes clean, they might want to check there air conditioners, a little noisy. If you have been to other resorts in Cuba, the entertainment is really not on the top of there list compared to other resorts. you might want to go to 62 second street. Food is eatable, they run out of pop a lot for your drinks, female bartenders cool, not so with the males. I love tipping the help they are shock just giving them a peso or two, it shows in the expression on there face, it makes you feel good. For first timers to Cuba the enchain of Canadian money to Cuban money is not good, you get back appox, 76 cents on the dollar, that not the best. beach is ok but no bar down there. Bingo each day. On the over all its not bad for the price, so enjoy have fun be safe.Now an added treat here, for people that are into tattoos, I must say there is a great place to go, there are very good at what they do, clean friendly, good pricing. They are called inkside tattoo on 1 ave, 48/49 street, Reinier #58114447, no I do not get any kick back for telling you about them. My roommate got one and was very pleased, No I don't myself get tattoos not my thing. Ok enjoy all.

Really amazing hotel with great staff, facilities, beach, and close to everything

Club Tropical was an exceptional hotel with super accommodating and warm staff. It’ll always be a 5 star in my heart! As soon as I arrived at the hotel, I was greeted by the front receptionist which asked me if I wanted dinner. The hotel restaurant had already closed, but they still let me in so I could eat! I'm in my early 20's, and I’ve never traveled alone before. But at no point during my stay did I feel unsafe or alone. The staff were amazing and made me feel like I’ve known them for years. Everywhere I went, I was greeted with a smile and “hola”. The staff even learned my name, and would talk to me whenever they see me. Some even taught me Spanish, and gave me hugs and kisses when I left! The Hotel buildings has vibrant colours and was very cozy. There are no elevators, but I love stairs so that wasn’t an issue. I got a pool side room on the 3rd floor, which had amazing views of the ocean, pool, and entertainment. The room had everything I needed: clean colourful bedding, A/C, a flat screen TV, lots of mirrors and closet space. The bathroom was very clean, with ample toilet paper, soap, and a nice warm shower. The maid was amazing! She restocked the toilet paper everyday, mopped the floors, made the beds and left cute towel arrangements on the beds. The food was fabulous! There is one restaurant at the resort, with plenty of variety for breakfast, lunch and dinner and desserts. It is buffet styled, and there was even a grill guy at the end if you wanted omelets, or special lunches/dinner (like pasta or grilled shrimp). The café late in the mornings are so good! It’s a must try! There was also a snack bar near the entertainment area, but I never ate there because I was always full from the buffet.The entertainers at the hotel are amazing! I went in low season (September), so they only had shows on Friday and Sunday nights. But there were lots of other activities during the day. The music was always lively, and always ended at 11pm so people can sleep. From my room, you can barely notice the music unless I was out in the balcony. Friday night they had a Cabaret show, and on Sunday night, there was a live band with incredible singers. Both performances were well worth my time. You can tell that the entertainers put a lot of effort into organizing the shows. The bar is 24 hours, and the bartenders were quick and generous with the drinks. One time, I wanted mojitos, and the bartender made me a special mix. The Cuba Libre (coke, rum and lime juice), pina colada, and Rum Punch were my personal favourites. The beach is right at the hotel, it is beautiful and clean, and just like what you imagine from the pictures. There are tons of beach chairs and sun shelters, and it was never too busy. The life guard was very friend, and security at the beach would bring me a beach chair as soon as he saw me. The water is so blue and clear, and with goggles, you can see fishes and little jellyfishes (the little ones don’t sting). There are paddle boats, kayaks, catamaran, and even snorkeling available right at the beach. The hotel is right in the heart of Varadero, and is close to lots of souvenir stands, grocery stores, bars and restaurants. The clubs are not too far either, but that's because I enjoy walking. It is about 5 CUC if you want to cab there. There is no wifi at the hotel, but the staff were super helpful in letting me know how to get access to wifi elsewhere. The people staying at the hotel was the only slight down side for me. Most people were older (50s-60s), or families with children. From my whole trip, I only saw about 3-4 people my age (20s). But it’s because I went in the off-season, so this was expected. The people were friendly regardless, so it wasn’t an issue for me. I’ve stayed at a so-called “4 star” hotel before, but the service itself knocks it down to 3 star or lower. This hotel is rated 3 star, but it was nothing less than 5 star for me. I came in with an open mind, as I saw mixed reviews. But once I experience it for myself, I was shocked at how people can say such negative things. A guy at the bar was trying to tell me how he disliked the staff and food and facilities. You have to remember that what you expect is what you’re going to get. I expected greatness, and I got nothing less than that. I would choose Club Tropical for my next vacation in a heart beat. Thanks again to everyone there! Gracias amigos!

Great Beach and friendly staff

OK, as you know some of the hotels in the town of Varadero are "Older" and might be a turn off for some but if you are not picky about the accommodation, well Club Tropical is a good destination. I travelled with a buddy and it was an awesome, trip we chilled on the beach or walked around town! We rarely were in our room, which had two seperate rooms and each room had two beds in them. The beach view was amazing! The food at Club Tropical is not like the typical North American cuisine ( I live in Canada) but there are more than enough options outside the hotel to choose from.Overall, your vacation is going to be what you make of it!! So, enjoy the beautiful beach, great and friendly people!!PS I traveled there in June 2014.
