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.

Great location

Really mixed experience! Bungalow room spacious and recently partially refurbished. Maid service excellent - towels and bedding changed every day, together with delightful towel 'sculptures'. Stunning beach and good pool. Gardens really well kept. Hotel overall rather tired. Most staff try really hard and are very friendly - there are lots of them! The buffet was plentiful but none of the 'hot' food was 'hot' - tepid at best. Sadly, the all inclusive wine and breakfast coffee were all watered down. The Japanese meal was good with lots of 'theatre', tho' overly rushed.

Should enjoy!

Stayed 2 weeks in this hotel. Bungalow accommodation was very spacious and in nice garden area next to pool 1 minute walk to an amazing beach. Furniture and decor little dated but was clean and maids came in daily to clean and change towels. Mini fridge stocked every 2 days with large water 2 beers 2 soft drinks.Aircon worked great and could be left on all day.Pool and beach had plenty of beds and no towels left out.Food is ok. Luke warm but plentiful. Lots of verity to eat and in the time I was there never seen anyone ill. Staff are amazing. So friendly and helpful even the people who didn't tip at all got great service. If you're the type of person who moans and finds fault then stay away from Tainos also cuba isn't for you. Before you go learn about the cuban history and day to day life and you'll have a fantastic time in this wonderful country.

Hotel on the whole was good - maids were fantastic Lay our maid was exceptional. Drinks were fine but the food was a bit random one morning we had brussel sprouts and mashed potatoe really - there is no traditonal English Breakfast but there is always something you can eat. Japensese night was absolutely fantastic dotn be put off by eating Sushi that is only the starter it was brilliant. The Wifi is terrible you have to buy a card at reception for around £1.80 for an hour and if you get on your are extremely lucky everyone was very frustrated at the lack of the facility. Make sure if you take sterling that all of the notes are clean as they wont change them if they have a mark on them. Havana was awesome but we didnt book with Thomas Cook we booked with the local tour company and they were much cheaper. Tropicanna - we never went but friends tells me it was very poor and not worth the money. Make sure you have lots of 25 cooks for the toilet s you even have to pay in the restaurants in Havana. Local cigarettes are only around £1.50 a packet and are ok. Lots of Mozzies around so please take plenty of Deet. On the whole what a fantastic country and if you talk to the local people they are sooo poor in comparison to us we should be grateful for what we have. Varedero is brilliant the markets are fantastic and try the Beatles bar on an evening groups are fantastic and its free with cans of lager around £1.80 and you dont feel threatened at all very very safe country . On the whole fantastic holiday so what if the food wasnt up to scratch no one will ever go hungry.

Great staff, but...

First of all let me start by saying that we love Cuba and have been there for more than 10 times and we are not the kind who complain about the little things. This was the second time for us to stay at this resort. Obviously we liked it so much the first time we've decided to go back, but this time things were a bit different. After a very long wait at the reception we were told the bungalows we paid for were not available and they gave us regular rooms in the main building and for this inconvenience we were offered a lobster dinner or late checkout or free safe. We chose the late checkout. The room was on the fourth floor of an old and decaying building with 1 elevator that works only sometimes. Next day we had to move to our bungalow and had to carry the luggage from the 4th floor all the way using the stairs since the elevator didn't work. The bungalows are OK but you some bed covers were stained and some matrices had holes in them. Food was OK for Cuba. The grounds and the pool are nice. The staff tries really hard to make up for the short comings of the resort and they are very friendly. This resort needs a face lift and I don't think I'd go there again until things change. Also the departure from the Varadero airport was a total nightmare with over 2 hours waiting in lines, but I will write about that separately.
