Our OpinionThe 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 The properties are outdated, but maintained regularly, which isn't a big issue.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.
All rooms have an overview to the beach. Very beautiful beach. Fortunately our room was the closest to the beach. Very good service. Good food. In the end of 5 days you could be enough but the beach paradise will strength you to stay. You have activities all nights and some days activities during the day. Also good if you have children. The drinks aren't from the "standard" brands. So, if you are strict in this point this can be a disadvantage. We weren't also told about the possibility of having some food during the afternoon. We only realised it on last day. Something That could be forgotten by the receptionist.In the end... very good! Relaxing...
The property was great white sand beaches the water was nice. The rooms the pool was fantastic. Most of the staff were friendly Mario the bartender was great once he got to know you alot of time when you got to the bar your drink was waiting for you.The renovations got a little load at times The only down fall was the food it was not good at all no veriety the same thing everyday over all its a nice place if they bring up the food quailty.
My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights a week ago. Going here I was scared because I read all the reviews and it seemed terrible. After the first day I was trying to figure out what everyones fuss was about. The room was basically new. No mould and very clean. We paid for a garden view and was given an ocean view for free. The food was bad but it's Cuba so what do you expect. The employees were nice however the people who preform the shows are not. The ONLY complaint we had about this hotel was the fact the staff where very VERY demanding of tips. Before we left I purchased things like toothbrushes, deodorants, kids toys etc.. to leave the maid and did cash tips for waitresses and bartenders. I understand these people are poor. But my friend and I where followed around the hotel, being hounded by the dancers to give them money. Earlier that same day we had a young worker come up and lie that the show cost money to be in (as it was a fashion show). My friend paid the money because she wanted to participate and was told to be there at 9pm to get ready. When we showed up we where told to go sit in the audience, as no guests where in the show. The same girl then approached us later telling me to pay for her taxi home from work. We then left the main area and headed back to our room because within 1 hour we where approached 7 different times, being told to give them money. Again, I understand these people are poor, and I did end up giving them money, but they where blatantly rude towards guests, not asking, telling them to give them money.
You have to take this review with a big bag of salt because the hotel is undergoing significant renovations so only part of it is open. I did feel that the value for the beach you get to go to is pretty good considering nearby hotels were double the price. Our room was an ocean view with a nice spacious bathroom but the bed cover and the throw pillows were VERY dusty and had an old smell. Our first course of action was to stow those away in the closet and to air the room out. The rooms were nice and spacious, clean and the housekeeping staff did a good job of making everything look nice and fresh every day.The big downside to the Naviti is the food. The buffet is very restricted and never offers anything new, and the other restaurant that you had to make a reservation for was basically a 3-course menu of buffet food on the plate. It was nice to have food served though and kept us from binge eating at the buffet. From what I've heard about other all-inclusives in Varadero, the Naviti is definitely among the worser options for food.The staff is the plus at this place. They were very friendly and always cheerful. This may be in part because the crowd is much more Cuban at the Naviti so they appreciate the non-Cuban visitors who are not trying to get plastered all day long. Overall a very mixed bag. The beach and cheap price dominate the downsides of the food and lack of amenities because of the massive renovations. If I had more money we would have gone elsewhere but for the price we paid (100usd total for 2 people per night) it was just fine.
The employees are really friendly and try top please you any time, the beach is amazing with Pelican coming to welcome you, Fantastic stay. I was having a room facing the sea. The garden is really nice and you can walk along the beach for almost 2 to 3 km.
