Our Opinion

One of the three Iberostar suites found in Varadero. This is a resort that is perfect for both families and couples. The facilities, from the resort lay out to the rooms are beautiful. The resort is beautifully laid out, with the poolside being centrally located, it's a perfect location to catch some sun, grab some food and drink.

Iberostar has done it again! The glamorous Iberostar Varadero brings Iberostar's European style to the warmth and magic of Cuba. Enjoy 24 hour food service, an elegant on-site spa (complete with its own swimming pool), public internet access and dining at the 'show cooking' Japanese restaurant.

Location: On the beach, 20 min to downtown Varadero, 40 min from the airport.

Fabulous holiday

Hotel reception - very friendly and welcoming, quick check in, cold drink handed to you on arrival. Lobby staff took cases to your room and were friendly and fast. Money can be exchanged here and internet cards can be purchased (2cuc for 1hr) Rooms - very spacious, clean, comfy, cool, well looked after every day, bathroom fabulous with walk in shower separate bath, hairdryer and variety of toiletries. We were in 1643 and were lucky to have a sea view. Pool area - brilliant, clean and spacious with plenty of beds and cabanas. Swim up bar with some good staff but some a little miserable (the only minor issue for whole holiday). Ele was very good at mixing the cocktails and joining in with the fun - fab smile and great service (just hope your cold had gone Ele so you get your sparkle back x) Daquiris and sambuca were my favourites �Restaurants- liked them all for different reasons. There is a microwave if you feel food is not warm enough in the buffet but mine was always ok. Tried loads of fish and it was delicious. Gym - good but some CV equipment not working. Towels and water provided. Spa - went once and loved itBeach - cannot be beaten but watch the waves as they caught me out!!! LolEntertainment team - Dennis was absolutely brilliant and is a credit to Iberostar. Dedicated to his job, brilliant with customers, always full of enthusiasm even when unwell (hope you feel better Dennis). Our group enjoyed the twice daily shooting, the foam party, evening shows and poolside fun. Thank you Dennis � xCoffee shop - included in the AI package and was great Bars - lobby bar great but just wish it had some cool air fans as it did not cool foe on an evening. My hand fan worked over time!! Groundstaff - work so hard every day and deserve a big thank you for keeping the garden areas do lovely. Even the work going on did not interrupt the holiday. Don't know how they work so hard in that heat and humidity All in all we had an amazing time. Would highly recommend the whole package. Hearing stupid minor complaints infuriated us - people forget they are in Cuba �!! My advice - understand the culture of the country before you book as you need to manage expectations not just presume the western and American influences are in all worldwide hotels.

Pluses and minuses

We spend 2 weeks in this hotel and got married there. So i think i will start from Belkis the wedding planer. She is a very nice lady she planned everything smoothly. No problems at all!The hotel staff nice and friendly but not everywhere! Restaurant staff yes professional and look after the guests but staff in the buffet nothing like that. They are much nicer for spanish speaking guests! Tables not prepared for people coming to eat! Awful coffee! Milk and water basically!Our room was clean and decorated by our maid Magnolia thank you once again! The whole hotel was clean!Mediterranean restaurant hmm didn't like it! Not very tasty food! One starter to choose! Soup! Awful lobster soup taste like sick! Surff and Turff i think that was the name for the lobster and stake we had. Well my lobster tasted like muddy water and i am pretty sure it wasn't cook properly.! Stake without taste and so small!Not big choice from the menu anyway!Japanese restaurant its basically fried rice egg and menu so confusing!International restaurant again one starter. Soup! Tortilla soup! Better than lobster soup but still not very nice! Better food in the buffet! Cocktails are daiquiri and rum! Strong drinks tough!Music in the club its spanish club music(salsa!) if you will request any other Dj will play or not. Its depends if he's got the song or know the song very strange anyway!Beach white sand and quite clean can't really complain! Not enough sun lounges! But they got more new ones on our last day! Also new beach bar has been built!We did 4trips. Havana all day,jeep safari,catamaran and Sugar, Rum and cigars. Jeep safari well horseback ridding looking at the time literally 5min! Motorboat 10min no snorkelling coz ocean was to rough so we could do horse ridding longer or motorboat. We did complain to the Thompson rep but they didn't do anything!Sugar rum and cigars was okay and havana! Catamaran good!

Excellent vacation!

We visited iberostar Varadero for 10 days end of September and it was a beautiful vacation !!! The beach and the ocean were exquisite, clean and warm....But the main attraction was the personnel; everybody was very helpful and trying to do their best in order the guest have the most pleasant stay.The room was spacious, ammenities nice, even though the furnishings and the bathroom's tiles could use a bit of an update; but those are only small details that didn't influence our stay.Food plenty and good, service OK for the most part....fruit choice could use a bit of an improvement.....Night shows were somehow dissapointing, I am sorry to say that because we truly loved the resort....Pools pristine and vegetation lush....all in all we will definetely return to the resort.And now the best part for me: I would really like to say a big Thank you to some special persons from the hotel: Idelsis the concierge ( whose warmth and helpfulness made us regard her more and more as a friend), Janet the Room Manager for her proffessionalism and constant desire to improve the services, and least but not last Yovanny the bartender whose wit and jokes gave us a lot a fun...Big thanks also for Fidel the chef for his constant care about the quality of food and service; Andrew and his collegue ( sorry I don,t have his name) for their good humour and for spoiling us with good things from the grill, Reglita the maid for her politeness and good housecleaning...We will always remember Juan Carlos for the best massages ever !!!!If possible book the room from block 20, close to restaurants and far from the disco and noise..We strongly recommend the resort, best time ever!!! Thanks again everyone from Iberostar Varadero for one of our best vacation .
