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 The properties are outdated, but maintained regularly, which isn't a big issue.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.
I spent my birthday at this resort. After 2 days in Havana, I was looking forward to relaxing in beautiful Varadero and I did. The beach here is simply lovely with a small cliff like area that make sunset viewing a wonderful experience. However, the hotel is being renovated and only about 40% of it is actually in use. This didn't bother me at all since I love boutique hotels and this felt like that. There were probably no more than 40 people at the resort - loved it. The beach, chairs and everything felt rather exclusive, but when a resort is only being partially used what suffers is the food and entertainment. The food is not good at all. It's pretty much the same every day and not much variety. Breakfast was not good. Lunch and dinner weren't bad, but not great either. They didn't have proper serveware for coffee and tea in the mornings. They used plastic cups with paper towels wrapped around it. There also isn't much to do. No water sports and so on that I could see. This didn't bother me, but if you're traveling with kids or looking for a little adventure with your beach vacation, this isn't the place for you. Overall, I had a great time and wonderful birthday. Would come back when the hotel is fully up and running again.
Was a wonderful week and fun and sun! Had the best staff and I must say the best room. Right on the water. We enjoyed our week to the max. We couldn't have asked for a better place, the main bldg was being reno'd so it was a small venue but the entertainment and service was top notch. Wonderful people all around.
This was my first trip to Cuba (February 2014). I have since been back and know what to expect of the country. This resort is quite nice in appearance and size. Like all places in Cuba, it could use some updating. It was dark and dingy in the hallways. The bars were not always open. There was NOWHERE to get food at nighttime when I visited. Sometimes the pool bar was said to serve late night snacks. However, I only found them to serve food on the weekends at nighttime. The first night I arrived after a long day of traveling and there was nowhere to grab a bite. I went to bed hungry that night. The buffet food was terrible. It was bland and unappetizing, but there was lots of selection. I ate mostly bread. I travelled the next year to Mercure Playa de Oro and found the food there much better. I also must say the A La Carte's at Naviti Varadero (at the time it was called Allegra Occidental) were AWFUL. We had to go to the buffet to find something to eat after our scheduled dinner. The shows were the same every night. It was worth going to see once but after that it got boring. The comedy show we had to leave part way through due to the racism and lack of comic relief (ironic for a comedy show)! That being said, the complaints end there. The beach is absolutely beautiful, the pool was nice, the staff were wonderful. I would go back but only if the price were right. Varadero cannot be beat. If you keep in mind that you are only looking for a place to lay your head at night -- this is perfect. However, I have been to better resorts for cheaper prices in Varadero. Perhaps this place is nicer now that it has been renamed and hopefully revamped!
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.
