Our Opinion

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.

Striking white sand beaches, ideal conditions for watersports and the Iberostar Playa Alameda Hotel are all great reasons to make Varadero your next holiday destination. Located just 15 minutes from the town of Varadero and 7 minutes from the Shopping Mall Plaza America, this resort is suited to both families and couples alike. Kayaking, windsurfing, Spanish lessons, a jacuzzi, kids club, 2 eye catching pools and much more will make your sun filled days soar by. While the evening entertainment, on site disco with drinks, bars and 4 restaurants will keep you going well into the night. With all of these features plus spacious hotel rooms it's easy to see that the Iberostar Playa Alameda Hotel will be on the top of every vacationer's travel list.

Location: Beachfront, 10 min to downtown Varadero, 35 min from the airport.

Smelly Rooms

I stayed at Iberostar Playa Alameda in Varadero Cuba for one week. The rooms smelled bad, like there was moulds. We changed rooms 3 times but the best room we changed to was still smelly. Our room was cleaned everyday but all the maid did was made the bed, she did not clean the floor, nor did she clean the sink and toilet bowl. The TV wasn't working since the remote control battery was dead so I told the maid and the front desk about it, but it was never fixed. Most of the staff was good, but some staff were lazy and just chatting in the buffet dining. Breakfast omelet guy was good and professional, and I enjoyed breakfast everyday. The gardener George was very good and always smiling and gave us coconut sometimes. The bartenders and drink waiters were the most busy personnel on the premises and they're all working hard and most pleasant. The shows every night were the best of all. The nightly shows are spectacular. One more thing, the water pressure is almost nil, and no hot water.

Pretty Good for Cuban Standards

Don't expect everything to be perfect but the people, location, beach, swimming pool, evening live music, night entertainment, food and bars are very good. In a way, the least favourable comment goes for rooms. Some have been refurbished and are pretty good but those that haven't been refurbished recently are up to 2-3 star hotels in Europe, particularly those on the ground floor that have a lot of condensation and damp. Fortunately, we were only in the room to sleep and the rest was fantastic. My 3 teenage children also loved it. Request a refurbished room.

The people are amazing

My trip here was for about 4 days and 3 nights. The resort in itself was beautiful, everything wasn't a far walk away. The room's were cleaned daily, only con was that the sheets had that funny smell as if they hadn't been fully dried. Food was okay, obviously nothing like in Canada but still decent enough to survive on. Beach was amazing, only thing is wish we would have had more beach towels. The staff and people at the resort were so kind and creative and really make your stay that much more enjoyable. My experience at Playa Alameda was great, and I highly suggest if you have the chance to take a visit

I stayed at Iberostar Playa Alameda in Varadero Cuba. The rooms smelled like mildew, the showers were clogged up so every time I took a shower my feet were covered in dirty water because the drains were not working properly. The refrigerator was not cleaned. The beds felt like bricks and something sticking me in my back when I slept. This all “inclusive” resort did NOT have food available at all times. When I arrived to the restaurant, the staff told me “sorry” you will have to wait 45 minutes until the buffet opens up. After pleading to be served because I was starving, the staff then served me under cooked fries and told me this is all they had to serve until the buffet opened up. I was under the impression and based on my many travels around the world is that all inclusive resorts should have food available 24/7. This was NOT the case at the Iberostar.The Buffet: There were birds flying around and above the food, keep in mind; the buffet was not outside but in an enclosed building yet birds were still flying around the food and the birds were drinking from the same water buckets they were serving to people. The Pool: The pool looked dirty, green and slimy…to the point if you went swimming in it you might come out with a YEAST Infection!! Although, Cuba is a third world country and facilities might not be the same as American standards I still DO NOT want to be drinking from the same source of water that birds were drinking from. I have been to a lot of places around the world and it’s sad to say but this has been one of my worst travel experiences!Letta W. Travelista Goddess
