Our Opinion
Please note that hotel standards in Cuba tend to be lower than in other Sun Destinations. Unless travelers are familiar with the resort or Cuban hotels, we typically recommend that travelers book a minimum 4 star resort when traveling to Cuba. 

Imagine the feeling of soft, manicured sand between your toes! Pretty little Villa Tortuga has a great spot on the beach and close to town.
Location: On Varadero beach, 20 min from the airport.

Most Awful Hotel I have ever stayed at in Cuba

1. My room was changed last minute. The room had a leaking air conditioner, that could not be turned off or controlled, it blew strong cold air while dripping a lot of water in to a large puddle on the room floor. There was: toothpaste and saliva on the bathroom sink fixture; there were no towels; no towels; no toilet paper; minifridge had not been cleaned in years; generally the whole room was filthy; a single wire acted as lock on the sliding glass door on this bottom floor unit. The store at the front of the resort which was part of the resort, was often worked/cashiered by a blond straight haired woman that regularly ripped me off - i purchased the same items every day and every day the same items cost completely different amounts. I think the most she scammed me for was 10 CUCs. On my last visit to the store, she refused to give me any change.The food was above and beyond the usual bad food of Cuba. They served rolls covered in some sort of syrup on Xmas Eve, they served the same stiff rolls the following breakfast, lunch and dinner and then the follow breakfast after that.I am suing transat as result of this experience.

Ok for the price

We had a group stay at Villa Tortuga from December 10th to 17th. All in all the resort was alright. We had some issues with leaky toilets and moldy rooms but the weather was great,the beach is right there. The food wasn't the best but you could walk to restaurants close by. We paid under 500 dollars so really no complaints. Sun and Fun!!

Horrible in many ways

We hoped to have a great experience in beautiful Varadero beach. And this was the experience in this all inclusive place: rooms are unmaintained and in horrible condition fit for a Brazilian favela; the tourist segment it attracts is low end cheap travelers from Europe and Canada including many people who are constantly drunk (free alcohol), throwing up and many dodgy characters fit for extremist right wing rallies and white trash; food is below average although plenty and free; many parts of the rooms were rusty and not working (doors), air conditioning could not be controlled; the whole front desk is a mafia of secondary tourist market (off books). But the beach is beautiful.
