This is our 3rd time vacationing in Varadero, Cuba. We stayed at Sol Palmeras, a 4 star hotel on our first visit a number of years ago and had a great time. On the 2nd visit, we stayed in Caya Coyo – no problem, its Cuba. Our return to Varadero was spoiled by poor food and high expectations from the... More

Stayed at this resort during the first week of September, and thus do not understand some of the complaints of the resort. I travel about 4 times each year and this is definately one hotel I would return to. To those considering other hotels in varadero, I have stayed at Arenas Blancas, Arenas Doradas, Melia las Antillas, Blau Varadero, and... More

I was married 5 years ago in Dom Rep and it was a toss up to go there again or Cuba to celebrate our anniversary we decided to go Cuba. I sort of wished I went back to Dom Rep. Not because Cuba was a horrible place it is actually a great country, beautiful beaches, and while I was there... More

Having just returned from the Iberostar, I've read the other reviews with interest and feel that they are pretty accurate. The rooms, pool area, beach and most of the staff are all excellent however the food and overall food hygiene is clearly a real problem. The buffet flattered to deceive, looking great far away but less appetising on closer examination... More

We've just returned from a two week stay at the Iberostar Varadero and find many of the negative comments about this hotel hard to swallow. We never found a problem with the food, to the contrary. In all restaurants, we found a wide variety and good quality of food that does nowhere near deserve the criticism it has received. The... More

The good bits were: the best beach we have ever seen, with waiters bringing cocktails to your lounger if you wished (although a tip was expected really if you wanted another!). The sea was beautiful, warm and clear. We never had any problem getting a lounger at any time. We found the food reasonable - I wouldn't say it was... More

The service was warm and we were made to feel welcome by everyone, even the gardeners were welcoming. The rooms were clean, tidy and spacious and the maid made the effort to make the room look different every day..
