Our Opinion
This is an older hotel that could use some updating, but it is still a charming place. In its heyday this was a 5 star hotel and Marilyn Monroe and the Rat Pack used to stay here.

NOTE: This hotel has closed.
This historic resort, completely renovated in 2002 and set in beautiful gardens, offers the largest hotel rooms to be found in Cuba. Varadero's best stretch of beach is right outside your door.

Location: Beachfront, 30 minutes from the airport and only 5 minutes from downtown Varadero.

Cuba - get there while it's not too commericalised!

We booked the Royal Service and sort of got what we booked, after speaking with the Manager (Mallorcan, Tony?) everything was sorted out. After that we had a fabulous time, the view from our room was fantastic and our butlers Marylin and Yasmin were super and friendly. We had great service from the Royal Service pool bar. A special mention goes to Mayli in the Bella Mar restaurant, who was clearly the most efficient. On the downside there are elements of communist Cuba still prevalent which shows up in service and food availability. In all a great holiday and hats off to the manager who is bringing the service culture we expect to Cuba.

Royal Service adds to experience - but at quite a cost

We had 5 days here at the end of an 9 day organised tour with Kuoni. We opted for "Royal service" which meant it was more peaceful and larger room, but we felt it wasn't worth the high extra cost. I am gluten-free which with one exception (Mexican restaurant) none of the staff seemed to understand (OK sir, so no separate bread at the start of the meal - then bread with the starter, and a biscuit as part of the desert!!). We had had lots of sun on 8 of our 9 days of the tour around Havana, the western area & then the towns of the central/southern areas, but mainly rain & strong winds in Varadero (& we were told much of the previous 9 days had been the same). Limited things to do if want more than beach & pool. Havana is the closest place for a trip out but it is a good 2 hours away so any trips offered will entail a lot of travelling.Oh, and the mosquito repellent the maid provided with us was singularly INEFFECTIVE, so maybe bring your own!!

My husband and I booked this resort as a very last minute 5 day getaway and we were very pleasantly surprised at how much we loved it! It was our first ever vacation in Cuba as we had always been hesitant to go due to all the negative reviews we had read regarding, food, mosquitos, poor service, run down rooms etc. We experienced none of the above. We were given an upgrade from the junior suite we had booked to the Family Concierge section (room 5516), had 24 hour butler service (Big thank you to Miquel and Pavel) who provided little extras throughout our stay and ensured we needed for nothing. The room was immaculate, well stocked daily, no bugs and very clean. The wait staff at all the bars, buffets and a la carte restaurants were friendly and pleasant...we walked away having made friends in some, Elizabeth at the family section buffet greated us every morning and lunch with a smile and conversation and was happy to have a little dance with my husband who was enjoying his vacation to the fullest. At the family section pool and snack bars..Ismely, Alejandro, and Duniar were fantastic! And at the main pool/beach bar, Idolfo was like a 3rd bultler to us...bringing us our drinks in timed perfection. To my huband and myself this vacation was a true 5 star experience, we can't wait to return. Thank you to the Paradisus Veradero resort and spa management and staff for making our first vacation in Cuba one to remember. It was like a honeymoon experience for us.

Top marks for entertainment

The staff at this hotel are great very friendly and helpful. The evening entertainment is superb our favourites was the water ballet and the saxophone / clarinet player. The themed restaurants in particular the Japanese was superb , the main buffet although a fair selection could have been hotter. We did have a problem with flies but mentioned this to our rep and the next day the problem was much better. The themed restaurants are not all open every day and the booking system a bit traumaticRooms great and always clean.

Amazing getaway in a beautiful environment and surrounding

I took my husband for his 50th birthday and it was one of the most beautiful vacations we've been to. It was our first time in Cuba and after Havana. We stayed at the Royal Service, the rooms were very nice and comfortable, the service was impeccable and we had the best butlers ever: Yaremis and Marilin. they made our stay unforgettable and they outdid themselves to make my husband"s birthday an unforgettable one. The resort is beautiful and very clean. We would have liked a bit more of Cuban music but it did not take away from the charm of the place. The best food was at the main restaurant of the Royal Service area, the rest of the restaurants were not as good. We met amazing people staying at the resort. I just want to thank the staff for being so attentive to all our needs and to making our stay unforgettable.
