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.

Great Vacation

We had a wonderful vacation. The staff were very friendly and provided great service. Deysi our server at the buffet restaurant for the first three days, at dinner time made us feel very welcome and our glasses were always filled. The servers at the other restaurants and the bars were also very attentive.Our room was large and was always kept clean by our maid Dianelys. She would make swans from the towels and leave them on the bed or in the bathroom. The fridge was filled every day with pop, beer, and water.The buffet restaurant had a variety of food. We ate at all three of the al a carte restaurants and found the food to be okay. Tha house wines were good. The beach restaurant made great hamburgers and it was nice not having to go a large restaurant every day for lunch.The beach is beautiful and we never had a problem finding a place to sit in the shade. The water was warm and you could walk out quite a distance before it got too deep. The server on the beach did a great job ( I don't know his name ). The hotel grounds were well taken care of by the gardeners. I would definitely return to this resort.

Verry Good Resort

My wife and I just got back from our third trip to Cuba. It has been about 10 years since we were there last and this time we took our daughter, her husband and their two teen age kids. Our previous trips were just my wife and I and we went to adults only resorts whereas the Iberostar Varadero is a family resort. Overall we had a great vacation.This, like our previous times, we found the staff at the resort to be some of the friendliest and helpful we have encountered in the Caribbean. In particular, our server Daysie in the main buffet dining area made our meals there great fun.The resort is an older one in Varadero and is beginning to show its’ age a little, however, it is well maintained and the grounds are immaculate. The rooms are reasonably large, comfortable and well air conditioned. The King size bed was firm, as I like it, and I had no problems sleeping. The mini bar was stocked with 4 beer, pop and large bottles (2) of water each day by the maid. My daughter had inconsistent delivery of the water (none a couple of days, one other times), as the tap water is not drinkable the bottled water is essential.The beach is what I came for, miles of white sand water that was always warm. Depending upon the tide we could walk out into the water 300 – 400 feet and it would only be as high as our waist. The water was crystal clear and we could frequently see fish swimming around us. My daughter and her faily spent time at the pools where they engaged in the many activities that were arranged for the guests. Both around the pool and on the beach there were plenty of umbrellas available at all times of the day.The one issue that I have with the resort is the food. Breakfast and lunch were good, however I found that the dinner menu at the buffet lacked a little variety from day to day (as is the case in many resort buffets). We visited the three al a cart restaurants and found the food to be good by Cuban standards, however we were limited to only visiting each once during our stay, this even though when we were there we saw plenty of available tables. I can only assume that this was done to contain costs. This is in contrast to our previous stays in Cuba where we were only limited by seating availability in these restaurants.Overall we had a great time and enjoyed our experience at this resort.

Iberostar services was really good but desapointed for the food.

Hello,I have been to Cuba almost 40 times now Since 2009. And I have tried all type and different resort all around Cuba. This resort is really nice and clean, but we were expecting to have seafood for the night of our stay, but there was nothing :(. For a 5 stars resort they should keep always 1 choice of seafood every night, grilled shrimp or lobster or calamari. That's the only disappointment I had with this resort. Anything else was really good, services and the drinks people attitude were really good all around the hotel. A big 5 ***** for the show the night I was there. WOW It was the best show I have never seen in Cuba since 2009. We rent on Monday only for 1 night to try out the resort. Thank you again.

Hands Down the Best Hotel!!

Oh My Goodness!! What an amazing hotel! If you want to go to Cuba an experience luxury, you would definitely love staying here at the Iberostar in Varadero. It is an ALL INCLUSIVE HOTEL in Cuba. At this hotel, you can eat all the food you want and drink all the top shelf liquor you want as well. This hotel is located right next to the Atlantic Ocean. The beach was very nice, but lots of coral in the bottom of water. There were shows and restaurants that you can book, but you have to do it ahead of time. There are a lot of people staying at the hotel, so you must book everything as soon as you get there. My family and I truly loved this hotel and it was our last stop in CUBA. Hands Down The Best Hotel!!!
