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.

Fantastic trip to Cuba

This is a really lovely hotel to stay at. The staff are exceptional and try to make your stay as memorable as possible. They are very helpful and always willing to provide service with a smile. Yamirka (La Mulate) who served us drinks in the evening was wonderful. She was so warm and friendly that our son was always sad if she was not there. The beach is very beautiful and the pool is lovely. The food is superb and I was would certainly recommend the Japanese restaurant. There are plenty of things that fussy children like and the fish was absolutely amazing. Some of the nicest I have ever tasted actually. I couldn't write a review without mentioning the shows in the evening. My son and husband don't care much for this sort of thing but they were completely wowed. The shows are incredible the choreography was stunning and the singing and dancing was breathtaking. A lot of the time the audience were left quite open mouthed. They were a lot of fun too as well as being performed to the very highest standard.The room is pretty much what you would expect except a little bigger than most places. We had the most basic of the rooms and there was two adults and a child and yes there were two double beds and still plenty of room. I do not like strange beds but these were pretty good very clean and comfortable.We went on a Jeep safari which was excellent and a visit to Havana and the nearby tropical island are well worth doing.Cuba is the only place we have ever been back to for a holiday as we like to go different places each year. It is fantastic and if you were thinking of a trip here you can book this hotel with complete confidence.

Stop Looking this is the One!!

We had stayed in Havana first and the five star hotel (ok I accept five star in Cuba is not the same as elsewhere) was terrible.....poor staff and service. When we turned up at this hotel resort, the children hugged me. Now thats what every parent dreams of. Stunning location and apparently the best hotel in Varadero and from my experience there is no reason to contest that claim. I would go back in a heart-beat.

Fantastic !! ! Will definitely return to Iberostar Varadero

We celebrated our 25 th Wedding Anniversary in beautiful Cuba . What wonderful people who greet you with open arms as soon as you arrive . Rooms are a little outdated but the beds are comfy . High numbers of tourists from England , Germany and Italy . We represented Canada but could not locate many Canadians around the resort . Food ,Bars and shows are fantastic . This is our second time to Cuba and will definitely return . Thanks again for a wonderful time and Hola ! everyone ...

Will definitely go back!

We stayed at Iberostar Varadero from July 29 to Aug 12. We went as a large family (16 members) and had our own bus (received this upgrade without asking!) from and back to the airport. Well, where to start? Staff right from the Manager (Fidel) who was particularly kind and understanding of the needs my elderly mother-in-law right through to the gardeners who greeted us every morning were cheerful, professional and cared about the service they offered. Osiel also deserves mention for being able to house our 16 family members in one large unit. We have been to Cuba a number of times and stayed at different resorts where there were problems with staff and food, but Iberostar Veradero had no such issues. Again, staff were great and food was the best we have ever had in Cuba. Kudos to the chef's who obviously took great pride in doing their best. The maids in unit 16 also did a great job keeping our rooms very clean. The meal staff at the large buffet (breakfast, lunch and dinner) were incredibly responsive to our needs and were always cheerful and willing to help.The beach of course was incredible and the pool looked nice and clean as well, although we are not pool people.So overall, excellent stay and we are already planning a second visit over the Christmas Holidays with more family members.

Diry, overcrowded and couldn't wait to leave

We went here as part of a Thomas Cook package with Havana. Iberostar is usually good, and we were clear that hotel star ratings are universal, but this was totally sub par to what it was classed as. We got to the hotel and thought it was ok, we ignored the dirty entrance area and staff standing talking rather than helping us with bags figuring it was towards the end of the day.Our room was stuffy, had damp on the walls and ceiling, mould around the safe and in the bathroom. The sheets were damp as the air con just about worked, it made the noise but didnt cool the room at all. Food was shocking, almost inedible. The japanese restaurant was the only good aspect of food but you can only eat it in a maximum number of times during your stay. The pool had rubbish in it and sun loungers were covered in bird poo. There were not nearly enough sun loungers available for the amount of people around, and the same with the bar areas/lounge areas. People were moving towels if you so much as left to go to the pool, and it felt cheap like a trip to Benidorm! After 2 days we phoned to get a flight home to the rain rather than stay here for another 8 days. Thankfully we got moved to a different hotel. Can safely say we would not recommend this, especially if you want to experience Cuba. Here you will get the cheap package holiday experience rather than the luxury you no doubt paid for and thought you would get.
