Our Opinion

A good budget option for Varadero packages, however, travellers should keep in mind that anything under 4 stars in Cuba can be quite basic. The beach here is very nice but the food and room options are minimal and value based. If you are just looking for cheap getaway, then this hotel might suffice. If you want a quality vacation in Varadero, go for a minimum 4 stars. A couple of good, well priced recommendations are the Memories Varadero, Riu Varadero and Iberostar Tainos.


The red tile roof, white-walled courtyard and tropical gardens give this hotel a Spanish-Colonial ambiance which provides a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere for families and couples alike. The Starfish Cuatro Palmas is centrally located downtown, close to shopping, restaurants and bars. The Las Palmas section of the hotel is located across the street from the Cuatro Palmas section of this property.

Location: Downtown, approximately 30 minutes from the Varadero airport.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
older hotel with old habbits

I have visited this hotel second week of December. the best memories I have from the stay is the front counter staff: Lisa Marie and Sarvelia. They both were excellent in providing TOP NOTCH customer service and I would like to applaud them for it. They deserved extra vacation days off just for their happy faces and being helpful. Without them this review would be 5 pages long - instead I will keep it short to the point.Now about the hotel:It is an older facility in good location if you want to be in the city.Rooms are cleanSecurity is watching your back so you will feel safe.Beach was well maintainedKitchen was well stuffedFood is average for Cuba - I never complain about food.I wish hotel management would treat workers with more curtesy and dignity. This is the poorest looking hotel that I have seen so far in Varadero ( and I come to Cuba 3-5 times a year). Buffet supervisor, bold guy from Dominican Republic was unnecessary addition at this resort. He did not help to enjoy my time.what WENT WRONG?- No DISCO at the premises- at buffet waitresses place cutleries on not so clean table as opposed on the napkin or servlets- Shows at nighttime are limited to low budget attractions- I was missing listening constant Cuban music either at the beach or by the pool area.- age average who comes here is around 60- although no kids are allowed at the resort (adults only) there were times where Lifeguard kid was present at the beach with his wife.- fridge in a room was never refilled - it was near impossible to get bottle of water daily.

We were there from Dec. 22nd to the 29th. like two years ago. We had a great time again. Karina and Mirna gave us the rooms (4) we asked for in the main building with the pool view. What makes this resort special for us is the amazing staff, (Elimay, Mercedes, Abel, Mario, Mattias...etc. The food was good again, the rooms were better than are first visit, being painted and had new furniture, and the ocean was amazing! The only request i would make is that, being an adult resort now, it would be nice to have a hot tub instead of the kids pool that is not being used. Thank's again to everyone from Starfish Cuatro Palmas for making our stay feel like our second home again!

Super nice Hotel! excellent service and a friendly atmosphere.

Excellent Place to visit! I had one of the best experiences staying at the Starfish Cuatro Palmas. The rooms where looking like new, clean. Also I was impressed by the new remodeling of the hotel and new looks. Friendly staff, and very helpful management. I would definitely recommend Starfish Cuatro Palmas to anyone looking for a peaceful, and exotic destination.

Great place to visit with excellent staff and the food was good and the proximity to the beach is great to have the best. A great resort and a great location on Varadero. Quality and service are top notch.
