Our Opinion
An amazing resort for couples wanting a nice and relaxing stay in Varadero. The resort facilities are amazing at this resort. The rooms are new and modern. You'll very rarely experience issues with the fixtures of your room. If you do, the attentive staff ensure that all of your needs and concerns are met. The housekeeping staff are amazing at ensuring that all rooms are maintained, well-stocked, and kept clean. The resort grounds are beautiful and always clean. There are two sections of the resort available for guests: the regular resort grounds and designated areas for 'Privilege' guests. Try to take the latter option, as you do get more freedom and options at the resort. The food is OK. There is a great variety available. However, sometimes, it varies in quality and taste.
The Ocean Varadero El Partiarca is located on Cuba's gorgeous Varadero beach, surrounded by expansive green spaces with tropical foliage, including the legendary 500 year-old "El Patriarca" cactus. The hotel offers exclusive rooms and Junior Suites, in addition to a vast array of services that includes themed restaurants, a Despacio Spa Centre and Privilege, Exclusive Rooms and Services.
Location: Directly on the beach; 8 km from the centre of Varadero and approximately 34 km from the Varadero airport.  5 km away from the Plaza Amrica Convention Centre, the Varadero Golf Club and dolphinarium.

Almost a great vacation

This was a good vacation spot. The people were great. Shout out to the breakfast workers Irving, Nancy and Madyori. They provided great service and went out of their way to get you whatever you needed. Resort was nice except we had cockroaches which the front desk did nothing about. Other then that, the room was nice but dated. The beach was really rocky. Not sure if that was because of the hurricane. They also made you put out your own chair which I didn't like. The water was beautiful. The pool needed to be cleaned but the water was nice. It was a quiet resort which I liked. You have to pay for internet which I thought was included but found out when we got there it wasn't. The food was ok. It would have tasted better if it wasn't cold.

Great staff and lovely hotel

We stayed here in March 2017.very impressed with this resort. Clean,good food, great staff. unlimited ala cartes. No reservations made so it's easy to get a table whenever you wanted. Never had a problem getting a spot at the beach or pool. Easy to find things and navigate around the resort. Loved the piano bar great fun.All the staff was great Pavel and Rosanne was the best we enjoyed it that much we have booked for new year and are taking friends and family with us.

Great staff

This is a great resort and the effort made by it staff is awesome. Best option to stay is the Privilege, there you can enjooy a private swimming pool, beach and all the premium beverages. One of the best moments I spent there was this year. I will repeat. Dayma is a great host, the best I ever meet in my hole life. See you as soon as possible.
