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.

Fantastic holiday

Just come back from our first holiday in Cuba and both hope we will be able to go back again some day. Beautiful country, wonderful people, amazing places, fantastic food. What's not to love?! Booked via Thomas Cook. Impressed with the comfort of the plane and delighted with the service we received. 3 days in Havana first with amazing guide Liuba who was tremendous. 10 days in Varadero and went on overnight trip to Trinidad . The hotel food in Trinidad was pretty mediocre and had to pay extra for water at breakfast but loved every minute of the trip. Tainos is a lovely hotel. Any complaints about the food cause us to query what people expect as we have nothing but praise for the range, quality and delicious choices every day. Ate stacks of fruit and salads every day without problems. We both had traveller's tummy for 24 to 48 hrs which was a shame but nothing we could pinpoint specifically to have caused it. Couldn’t recommend this place highly enough. Thanks for a truly unforgettable holiday!

Lovely family hotel with excellent staff

We stayed here 28th July to 10th August with a large group of friends. It was an amazing holiday, helped by so many wonderful Cuban staff. First of all, our bungalow room was clean and comfortable and our maid Tamara kept it beautiful for the whole stay.Entertainment was brilliant. Elvis makes the holiday and our youngest son Evan worships him! Elvis was always willing to take the time to dance with Evan and told him he is Cuban inside. A compliment indeed. Other brilliant animation and kids' staff - YaYa who chose Evan to play baby Simba in the amazing Lion King show which we will remember for the rest of our lives. Then The lovely Lucy who looked after Evan and Gabriel at kids' club, and Julio Caesar who never seems to be off duty! We took part in a lot of the games (Mr and Miss Iberostar, shooting, darts, coin toss, bingo and dancing) while we were there but it was by no means in your face if you wanted to be left to snooze in the sun. Ana the Thomas Cook rep was full of knowledge and helped us with any queries, even organising a pink Cadillac as a jokey surprise for the men to attend the Buena Vista Social Club evening! Then there was George and Tibero at the bar who both went over and above to ensure we and other guests wanted for nothing. These people and many others at the hotel, made our holiday, but the hotel itself was also lovely.The pool is perfect and never too crowed and the beach is idyllic. The buffet restaurant serves great omelettes at breakfast and cooked to order pasta for lunch/dinner as well as a load of other good food, all beautifully presented. No problem with birds - this is a peaceful location and as such, there is wildlife around, which we saw as an asset. All food was covered when outside, unless inconsiderate guests left it open, so please don't believe any negative comments. The Cuban restaurant was lovely and one of our best nights, and the Japanese served fabulous food, showman-style, if in a little less relaxed atmosphere than the Cuban. There is plenty of choice and we all found it easy to eat well and enjoy the plentiful cocktails. There are a few little shops and stalls in reception which offer the usual souvenirs and on our last morning one of the stall holders who sells bracelets and jewellery, gave my son a key ring as he had noticed his baseball shirt and the fact he had a lot on his bag. This sums up what the Cuban spirit is. The people are kind, welcoming and warm, and we feel honoured to have been able to stay at the Tainos.We left with heavy hearts when it was time to go home. Our boys were gutted to say goodbye and are already missing Elvis, YaYa and Lucy, and we will be returning as soon as we can afford it. Thank you everyone at the Tainos for a brilliant holiday!
