The Naviti Varadero Resort is a great resort for travelers looking for a spot with an amazing beach. The remaining elements of the resort has very little to be desired. The properties are outdated, but maintained regularly, which isn't a big issue. The rooms are adequate and are cleaned regularly. The staff is pleasant and attentive. They'll try their best in accommodating your needs. There are OK buffet items. The resort has a separate area for a kids pool and activity area. Good variety of nightly entertainment, especially the Michael Jackson show.
Location: On a superb stretch of private beach over 1 kilometre long. Approximately 30 minutes from the airport.
We transferred to the Naviti from another resort after two days at a plow-down resort known as the Gran Caribe Playa Caleta, and it was well worth the upgrade for less than 200 bucks. The rooms have been tastefully updated and the grounds are in great shape considering the recent hurricane that hit this area. Our maid Redy was wonderful and ensured our room was always neat and cleaned to perfection.Despite the cool weather and wind we endured during our stay, the activities staff worked hard to keep guest entertained. One such staff member that is worthy of mention is Chaca, a young man who was always engaging the guests. We observed him being berated by an German female guest who screamed at him over a lack of towels at the pool. Chaca maintained his composure and resolved the situation professionally.Live entertainment in the lobby started around 6 pm every night followed by the scheduled 9:30 shows. Our favorite show was the Reynaldo and Manuela show in the Cohiba Bar which was on every night during our stay. They, along with Beatrix, Yaris and "Training", made our evenings complete.The food quality was great, varied, and tastefully presented, often done with theme nights. The only disappointment we had was with the a la carte restaurant which needs some improvement on. A caesar salad with shrimp consisted of a single leaf of romaine with about two tablespoons of shrimp slopped down on the center of it. God bless them for trying, but it misses the mark, compared to other a la carte's we have been to, but is not anything to deter us from already planning a return trip to this wonderful place and it's warm climate and, equally warm people.Can't wait to return.....
Was a beautiful resort but was half closed. Kids had a great time. Food is not good but you have to consider where you are. Rooms are clean but sheets and blankets are old and stained. Couldn’t ask for a nicer beach and pools were super close. Recommend if you don’t care about eating same thing every night your there.
I was very pleased with my stay at Nativi Varadero. I was a solo traveled for a week of relaxing time and I felt very safe all the times. I previously got a room at the beach club (I preferred there as at night would not be noise as in the main building),on the ground level with a beautiful wrap around balcony that I really liked, but soon I noticed that I would not have much privacy as I could see people walking outside on the way to the beach....so I asked front desk if they had any room available in the upper floor and they were really helpful to accommodate me with no problem. They understood I was a gal on my own. The room was the same but the mirror of the other one and with 2 double bed instead of a king, what was no problem at all for me ....the view was awesome actually as I could see the beach from my balcony...yayyy. Thanks ladies at front desk. The room was very clean and that is what matters form me most.The hotel in general was clean, but restrooms would get very dirty and without paper around mid morning/noonish (and that was all the restrooms we had access to)..so I learned to always carry paper with me :)....looked they were short staffed at some days. But overall I have no complaints, I didn't stress over this things, I was in vacation and want to enjoy...after all its Cuba and you can't expect the same level of hotels you find in Canada or other first word countries....even though they do there best to please you. So, these things were not a big deal for me. The entertainment show were very nice even though I just watched 3 (some night I was already at my room by 10..lol....I said my goal there was to have a relaxing week and sleep was on the menu..haha). I am originally from Brazil even though I live in Canada and I really like the samba show on the "Latin show night"..congrats to the dancers for the great show.The food was not the great....I expected to be able to eat quite more fruits, but its ok, I guess. The food was good, but not many choices if you don't eat gluten and trying to avoid loading on sugar, but I survived. The problem is that was exactly the same every single day, so you get very bored.... I eat omelette every breakfast as was the only choice beside tons of bread and pastry and for dinner was always chicken and some fish....but no much different things...one night I managed to get some shrimps...yayy. This I am talking about the buffet restaurant that at this time there was only one restaurant opened...maybe when the other 2 are opened too the selection is a bit better. For the a la cart you had to make reservations starting at 7am (better be there not late then 7:30), but my experience wasn't the greatest as I run to make to my time reserved and I took more then 1 hr to have my order taken....not sure if was because I was alone....but I don't think so, they actually were short staffed, there were only two girls for the whole restaurant even though was not too busy....but its ok. Food on the a la cart was so so...I chose a plate with wild rice and came with white and the fish was the same as the buffet..at the end I was still hungry..haha.But overall I great time there, everyone is very friendly and smiling most of the time. My maid was awesome and I asked her to get me 2 bottles of water everyday instead of one as I need to drink lots during the day and she never forgot. she wound also change my towels everyday what was nice....thank you Somalia, I really appreciate it my dear....(Hope the clothes fitted your kids). Want to thank also some other staff that were great making my delicious caputinos and pina colada.... thanks Yaris, Miley, Manuele, Betty and others I can't recall the name.So, my final words is that I would recommend this hotel as long as you don't have 5 stars expectations. The essentials are very good....clean rooms, good bed, great service from staff and good friends to make. Happy vacations!!
The rooms are renovated and look like on the pictures. The beds are large and comfy. Water is only included one large bottle (I asked for more and got one more bottle), one restaurant was opened, lobby bar closes at 12, waited 10-15 minutes to get a simple Cola, at lunch time they run out of Mojito, food is not that varied, almost always the same selection of vegetables, rice, pasta - you find something to eat, no real taste & cold but you're not starving or get sick. Chocolate ice-cream is good but almost always empty as well as other things that taste (olives, tuna, chicken,...)Show up at restaurants when they open as fill up of food is very slow or thing just disappear when the first round is gone.In 4 nights NEVER hot water in the shower, complained about it - the technician tried to "fix" something - nothing changed...far too expensive for the value you get. Only the beach is really nice (if the weather is good...) Better a room to the street (really no noise) but you have sun on the balcony. better in the upper levels as I had one time some small cockroachs one time.
all the girls and Reinaldo are so amazing !!! it's the only reason i keep coming back..when you go there you feel like family.. the drinks are great and always coming ...they will always take time to chat with you and to get to know your name and memorize your drinks !!...you will never see a sad face in there ,even when the place is packed so thank-you guys for making me want to come back every year.. love you all..and see you again really soon
