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.

5th visit and still the best

This was our 5th visit to the Tainos, with a couple of other vacations in between and still the Tainos is our preferred hotel. It's a perfect family resort. The pool: great pool for children to sit in and play at the edge. To make it even more enjoyable the wonderful Bartenders walk around and deliver drinks to you.The food: best food we've found in Cuba. There is no way you will go hungry at this resort. All of the servers are so friendly and especially kind to our small children. The rooms: our preference would be the bungalows. It's much easier with small children to run to the bungalow for a bathroom break or whatever toy they forgot in the room then it would be to go to the hotel. The staff: amazing. We have been to 4 other Cuban hotels and the Tainos is by far the best. They will do anything to make your stay with them enjoyable and stress free. And it always amazes me that they remember the faces they do. They see so many people each week yet they remember returning guests. I can't say enough good about this hotel.

Birthday get together with family and friends

Able to arrange a birthday get together before we arrived through Giselle (and Mayelin) at customer service, she answered all our questions and arranged the menu with us (23 of us) Giselle will go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your time at Tainos. Amazing friendly staff Annelys at reception to the wonderful bar staff, Daylin and Reisel, William, Rey and George who kept the coffee and drinks coming. Special thanks also to the great buffet staff, Glenda, Yanet, Betty, Roberto, Adrian. Thank you for being so kind to wee Trinity, she adored you all, the pictures, paper hats and paper roses are all over the house. Elvis, you are something else beyond entertaining, you're a natural! The daytime activity team need to stay on task more but most of it was enjoyable.Food, drinks were plentiful to choose from, a favourite was cucumber juice in the morning. Same variety every day so instead of a little bit of everything I chose to have pasta one day, potatoes and meat another etc... Great beach, most days had help with loungers. Fabulous holiday!

Peaceful hotel with very friendly stsvg

It’s an equivalent to EU 3* hotel so you can imagine it’s not the most cleanest hotel, the resources inside the room are limited and in ‘ok’ standard . They had great food and the staff were very lovely and helpful. The nightlife entertainment is very poor, after 10pm there was nothing to do so people just hanged out in the lobby, went back to their room or took a taxi to the city. The internet was not strong and had to be purchased but that was expected.

The staff made this 2 weeks memorable

The staff at this hotel are amazing! Giselle, Catalaya, Ali, George and Elvis to name but a few!Nothing was too much trouble and after a couple of days the staff remembered our drinks orders and our names.Its no wonder we met people who have been back 13 and 16 times!
