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.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Justin M :

I traveled to this resort to attend a family member's wedding. Absolutely amazing. Staff were great. Before coming here, I was informed by a lot of individuals that the food was not the greatest. However, I found the food to be amazing! I am not a fussy eater, and didn't see anything wrong with the meals whats so ever. The beach was absolutely beautiful. Will definitely return.

First time in Cuba

Apologies in advance for the lengthy review - What can I say, this place is wonderful.We stayed there from 15th Nov to 22nd Dec and it was one of the only holidays where we weren't ready nor did we want to come home. It is pure paradise.The beach - I have not travelled that much mainly stayed in the Med or Greek islands and have seen glorious beaches before (Fuerteventura, Majorca etc) however this each is really something else. Clear blue seas and talcum powder like sand. The water is very shallow for a long way out and very very warm. We always managed to get a sunbed and parasol at any time of the day, in a good spot and it was never over crowded. The non motorised water sports are included in the A/I package so we went on the catamaran and the pedalos. The staff are always coming around asking if we wanted our drinks topping up. There is also some great beach activities on the beach.Rooms - We stayed in room 1141 and just about could sea the ocean. Special thanks must go to Marilyn who kept our room in tip top condition, we had no issues. Food - We tried all 3 a la carte restaurants and found them all to be delicious. The house wine Vina Maipo is very palatable (and I am not really a wine drinker) so much so I am now looking for it in England. The buffet restaurant is good and you will never go hungry. Entertainment - The entertainment is the best I have ever seen, with a varied programme. During the day the animation team were fab, there was no pressure to join in and they were all very professional. Cocktails - the best I have ever tasted, in particular the strawberry Daiquiri and the pina colada.Mosquitoes - This is a hot climate so yes there are plenty of mosquitoes, my husband suffered from quite a lot of bites however repellent and anti histamine cream did the job. Cat sanctuary - There is an area of the hotel where there has been a cat house built. The cats are friendly and do not bother you and do not enter any of the hotel buildings.People/Staff - All the staff are very obliging and really go out of their way to ensure you have a great time. They cannot do enough for you. The gardeners left a flower each day on our door and made animals out of palm tree leaves.Cuban Day - Unfortunately this was on the day we were leaving so could not take part in the full day but it was great fun. Lots of old american cars in the hotel grounds, live bands, fresh coconuts, the whole feel of the day was that of cheer, happiness and having a good time. To summarise our holiday, I can honestly say it is one of the best holidays I have ever had and cannot wait to go back. Its like somewhere I have never been before something else.Thank you to everyone at Iberostar Varadero for making us feel so welcome in your beautiful county. The staff are a real credit so please pass on our grateful thanks to each and everyone. see you again soon

Probably the best in Varadero

The best buffet restaurant in a Cuban All Inclusive Resort.No Cuban tastes at all at any of the restaurants but really nice food and service in the buffet.Get up early if you want a nice chair on the beach as it gets really crowded after 10am.

Third time here – amazing!

Our family (2 adults and two small kids) stayed in this resort 3rd time and again we had outstanding experience. Common question about Cuba is food. It was delicious, there were a lot of varieties and, of course, no any food poisons. We went a few times to different restaurants, but with kids we actually preferred buffet in the main building.This resort really listens – we asked for certain accommodation and it was done. Landscaping is very beautiful, beach is amazing, no any seaweed or rocks at all.Staff is really something – very friendly and helpful. With many of them we developed a very good relationship. One of the staff members even remembered my name! If I wanted to see some improvements, I would say that they need to review evening program for kids at 8pm – it the same for a couple of years. I would also like to see renewed matrasses for kids.This year we are going there our fourth time.

Beautiful Resort with Fantastic Staff!

We just had our wedding here with 28 guests. We stayed from Dec 27 to Jan 7. The hotel was excellent. The Food fantastic. The staff absolutely warm, caring - just amazing; they make you feel like family!So many wonderful people took such special care of the entire family for the whole week. Special thanks to our wedding coordinator Belkis Rodreguis- she is fabulous. Her attention to detail is exquisite and she ensured the entire day and evening was perfect. She deserves he reputation of excellence!!Also to the other amazing staff - the entire group was overwhelmed by the sincerity and warmth of these tremendous caring individuals including the concierge Fidel, Osiel, and Rafael; our bartenders Alain!!! Mandy; and Ali!! And Yeisel! all worked very hard to ensure we had the best time possible and always served us with smiles and warmth!! Our DJ Yasser was first class arranging all of the AV for our singers from Canada - he then put on a fantastic party in the disco for the reception where his music filled the dance floor. ( **Iberostar should use him every night because he knows what to play to get people on the floor- other nights the disco was empty bc the music didn’t fit the crowd at the hotel). So many other special Cuban friends on the staff to thank. The restaurant staff at the Buffett and la Parilla were outstanding. The food at la Parilla, for both the wedding and New Year’s Eve was outstanding as was the service where they accommodated the entire group of 26 without a flaw. At the Buffet special thanks to Jorge who arranged a table for the whole group to dine together on several occasions and he and the staff there treated us wonderfully! Also 2 thumbs up to our pasta chef Alexi and the man behind the scenes Orlando Ramos who go above and beyond to bring happiness with all they do. The gourmet restaurant was an excellent meal and experience suited to the adults in our group. A First class experience. ( they perfectly adjusted for shell fish allergies providing delicious alternatives) Lastly, the New Years Eve bash was outstanding and incredibly memorable. For many in our group the best ever which speaks volumes of the job the hotel and the entertainment staff did that evening- they do it all!!Bottom line - this hotel and the staff make this a very special resort!! The food, the entertainment, the facilities, the beach, and above all the Iberostar staff. If Iberostar is about quality and Cuba is about the warmth of the Cuban people then the very best of them come together at Iberostar Veredaro!
