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.
Location: Beachfront, 30 min from the airport, 15 min to downtown Varadero.
All inclusive holiday with sister. Hotel was ok, nothing spectacular. Staff in hotel were only nice to get a tips. This was particularly true with staff in the main dinning area. One actually asked if we did not get good service when we did not leave a tip on ONE occasion. I was on holiday and do not want to carry a purse/money everywhere I went, especially in an all inclusive holiday resort. Even the woman at the gift shop in hotel had a tip tray next to till. In the area where the food was being served the chefs had saucers for tips, totally disgusting as we all know the germs that money has on it! Also only one bottle of water left every two days in room. One bottle per person, per day is more appropriate. Far more civilised to leave tip at end for it to be shared equally with all hotel staff to benefit, ie gardners etc. than to be ignored if you didn't leave tip and given bad service. This is supposed to be a 4 star hotel, more like 3 star.
I would like to thank the management and staff of the Tainos Iberostar Varadero for the gift for my birthday last week. It was a really great surprise to see the bottle of wine and the Felix compleanos message, left in my room.I look forward to visiting Tainos again.Many thanks to all of you.Best wishes to all.Amanda
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.
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.
