Our Opinion

This is another great resort for families in Varadero. While the hotel grounds are old, they're well-maintained and it doesn't take away from the aesthetic of the resort. The rooms however, are all top-notch. You'll never have an issue with the amenities or ensuring that your room is well stocked. Incredibly attentive and friendly staff will always be there to address your concerns and needs. There are OK food options with regards to buffet and a la carte items. Be advised though that the food in Cuba isn't as comparable to those of other resorts. If you're looking for a place with plenty of activities to do, this is the resort. The beautiful beach offers some of the best snorkeling locations, and there are many options with regards to other out-of-resort excursions.

Located on a beautiful stretch of Varadero Beach surrounded by tropical gardens, the warm, inviting and renovated accommodations are divided into two areas - 1 low-rise building and 18 two-storey bungalows. Singles, couples and families appreciate this hotels' excellent four-star value, wide variety of entertainment and activities, including complimentary afternoon tea and dance lessons.

Location: Beachfront, 30 min from the airport, 15 min to downtown Varadero.

Value , friendly, recommended

A really friendly and good value Hotel. We stayed in bungalows which were roomy and with balcony on two sides. A little dated but comfortable and clean. Food was always plentiful and varied and bar service excellent. Perfect beach and spacious pool. Not noisy even when busy . Downside was gym - broken equipment I'm afraid. Not the top of the range but well worth the money.

First time to Cuba, Resort was excellent as was the food and entertainment right on the beach lots of excursions available and Havana well worth a visit. The Tropicana show is a must see as well as the catermaran ride with snorkelling and lunch on a private island we didn't want to come home. The next time we go we will hire a car as plenty to see but took cabs everywhere these are not expensive and great fun as most of them are big 50's American classics.

Lovely Cuban experience.

This was a lovely holiday experience with a small group of friends. The Hotel although slightly dated was pleasant clean and staffed by some of the most lovely people who work hard to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The Head Chef and is Number2 really try hard to please; checking and quality controlling all the time. Keep in mind they have to use seasonal produce and have very little in the way of imported goods. It is a country that still has food rationing for locals.. I was really impressed that everyone could be catered for virtually every meal. I loved the selection of fresh and preserved seafood available throughout our two weeks stay. Ana the Thomas Cook rep was brilliant and would try her hardest to sort snags out very quickly. Her knowledge of trips and excursions was second to none. She arranged a bespoke trip to Havana for us with a very accommodating guide who knew so much about so many different topics. The rating is a little higher than I would have given but that is more to do with a lack of aircon or fans in the reception and drinks lobby.. Wifi is a pay as you go system @ 1.50CUCs per hour. It's not fast and the country lacks the modern infrastructure to do anything about it. Cuba is still subjected by US embargoes and has been since shortly after the Fidel Castro revolution. I was impressed the people, they are so proud of their health service (free) and high education standards (free) for all, up to University level, if you're adept enough to go to university.I felt safe at all times on the excisions and at the resort. Just loved the whole Cuban experience and the sea & beach are to die for.

Fantastic Family Vacation, it`s a super special place.

I travelled here with my sister, brother-in-law and my 10 year old daughter, August 11th 2017 for two weeks.The hotel staff are amazing. They treat you like family. Nothing is too much trouble. Their focus is to make sure you have an amazing time.The animation team (Julio Cezar, Elvis, Dairon , Ali, Kataya , Javi, Remy, Lucy ,Yaya) all work so hard to make your time there fun. They have the balance completely right when asking you to join in activities, they encourage you but aren't bothersome. The range of activities they offer is great( tennis, table tennis, rifle shooting, darts, dance lessons, shuffleboard, penalty shoot out, beach volley ball and many more) and they always make a special effort to include children. I watched my very shy 10 year old blossom because of how the staff included her and she loved the activities. She didn't use mini club but Lucy who runs it is a lovely person who obviously enjoys her job.The pool has a shallow and deep area with a Jacuzzi in the shallow area. It is clean and they often hold games there each day, plus bingo. The staff also hold a beach party with two large screens and a dj, beach bar is open till 1a.m. The towels can be replaced for the pool as often as you like and I can highly recommend Noel, the massuse who is housed next to the towel collection point.The lobby bar is where a lot of people sit in the evening, they keep the windows and doors open on both sides and a lovely breeze blows through to keep you cool. The bar staff , morning and night, Mae Lang, Esperansa,,Udaisy, Sandy, William are all friendly, and are kept very busy.The coffee here at the lobby bar is beautiful.The hotel room was large, clean and comfortable. We stayed in the main hotel and the views were fantastic.Access to food seems to be available 24hrs. It is a self service style buffet and hot counters. The breakfast Chefs make the best omelettes and pancakes... Eveningtime, Matteo the pasta chef makes fantastic sauces and is really happy and friendly.The waiting on team we met included, Jensi, Glenda,and Yanita they were all so welcoming, attentive and friendly but professional. I found George down at the beach bar an absolute pleasure, he had a really chilled vibe and was always happy. The gardeners make a wonderful job of the grounds, attention to detail is fantastic. The theatre has entertainment on each night and we found the team super funny, they also had Club Tropicarner dancers on one occasion. I am glad we chose to stay here in a smaller hotel, it may be less plush than other Iberostars I`ve stayed at but its the team working there, everywhere in the hotel that make this place feel so great. My favourite place ? the beach , it is simply stunning and so shallow for the smallest of the children to play safely in. This really is heaven on earth and I can`t wait to return.
