Iberostar Playa Alameda
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The Iberostar Playa Alameda is one of the better resorts to stay in Varadero. There is quite a few buffet items to choose from. There are plenty of a la carte restaurants to choose from. However, be advised that you're only able to reserve to three of them per stay. Pleasant beach, with plenty of loungers available to relax on. There are scooters to rent on site, making it great for those who want to go beyond the resort strip. This resort is well suited for couples and children alike. A great stay in Varadero.
Location: Beachfront, 10 min to downtown Varadero, 35 min from the airport.
We went to IBEROSTAR Playa Alameda Hotel in Varadera on April 15 2017 for seven days. It was a lovely holiday, our fifth time to Cuba. The accommodation was very acceptable in the categories of safety, cleanliness and atmosphere. The highlights were the great beach, beautiful live music and entertainment( Magic Show was 9 out of 10) Food was average, not exceptional. Best for us was the Romantio Restaurant, lasagne was very very good. and lunch at Il Rancho was fabulous.(live music) Say hi to Roberto for us, charming hard working fellow. Towels were not always readily available , be patient the workers, they do their best. You may have to ask with a smile many times. It is not their fault if the administration does not support the overall effectiveness of delivery . Tipping is so appreciated.There was an issue with water not draining properly from our shower, and it was never addressed, even though we advised many times. The Bars serve lovely drinks and the workers there are exceptional in their efforts. Bring bug spray for evening strolls, there are mosquitoes, keep your balcony door closed. There is construction near building 16!! our building was 11 and the view was not scenic, but quiet at night and day.
Most important is the service ! All the staff were exceptional and we were happy with our stay. The rooms are a bit musty but hey it's the tropical weather that contributes to that. The food is great and we always found something to eat. My daughters 8th birthday and they treated her very well. The beach is fantastic and the best part of this hotel is that it is small. You can walk to everything in 5 minutes. Shows were great and entertainment staff is awesome. There were always activities but not so many that u felt annoyed. Always found spot on beach but had to be there early to reserve under umbrelllas. We stayed in block 20 which had renovated bathrooms and is closest to beach. Would definitely come back ! Thank you everyone for a really nice week !
Normally I won't write recommandations but this one is absolutely worth it! Visit for 14 days with a friend and had a great time. Food was amazing with a good variety. Good service in general, lovely people and just an beautiful place to stay and relax! After many trips and hotels that I visit so far this is in my top 3!
The most of personal in the buffet restaurant was not kind enough, no smile when you ask for help and serving. Very poor knowledge of English language. Slow service and long waiting time .Always the same type of food and meals.Plates not clean and dried enough. Poor choice of wines and very bad quality.Quality of any type of coffee very poor and takes forever to get it.Bar close to lobby very dark and depressing. Wi-fi connection very slow and does not work on all phones. No warnings how to save time on wi-fi card.Rooms are ok if they are renovated. The following things are not good in the rooms:- Clogged draines in the sink and shower- Separeted beds- Floor never been mapped- Toilet seat not fasten- Mini bar fridge very noisy.On the bright side is very kind personal on reception desk and guest service office.Very good entertainment crew and program in the theater. Nice music in front of lobby.I hope new manager will take action in order to improve this resort and bring this resort on proper level.
beautiful grounds, fabulous entertainment, friendly people (mostly), decent food (mostly), but maintenance in the rooms was sadly lacking - broken fridge, air conditioning, safe, patio door. They were all fixed but there was no reason for them to be broken on check-in
