This is a late review. I stayed here with a friend in early June 2015. It was only $10 more expensive than Acuzul/Varazul (!!! Anyone who frequents Varadero will understand). I had always wanted to stay here, due to it's location (still in town but at the edge. Near Havana Club, La Comparcita, Caille 62 and (shudder) Beatles Bar) and...

This, like someone said below, is a tough review to write. I am going to keep it to the hotel and not my first ever overall experience in Cuba. I do not have anything else in Cuba to compare it to although I have been to Mexico, all over and most other Caribbean Islands countless times. There seems to be...

We had a great stay. If you can overlook the (very) dated decor in the rooms I'd recommend. The staff/ service was great, good selection of food both buffet style and a la carte in the restaurants. The beach really did make this, clean sand and clear waters! The entertainment was fun too, great band in the bar each evening...

This is by far the hardest Trip advisor review I have had to write, but I will do my best to describe our experience honestly. This was our fourth trip to Varadero.

Hotel was perfectly situated close to the city center. The beautiful beach was full of pelicans. Drinks and food were good too. Bar was opening 24 hour. The Animators and staff were very friendly. Room was clean, but towels was not changed every day. I was very satisfied and truly recomend this lovely place.

The positive reviews perplex me. I do not understand how anyone could rate this hovel as anything more than 2 stars. I took away an extra star because they tried to dupe me by first putting me into an older crappier room even though I had booked a superior room in the newer colonial section. While I was warned that...

It's an all inclusive resort that gives you a plastic wristband on check-in, allowing you unlimited access to all food and drinks 24/7. We spent just 1 day and 1 night (in a superior room) as we'd heard the white-sand beaches of Varadero were not to be missed. For us, 1 night was ample. Staff were lovely, food was plentiful...
