How busy is Starfish Resort in August?

I'm planning to stay there solo for 3 nights in August. (August 3-August 5) How is the vibe at the resort? Is it dead? Is there alot of Canadians? Young crowds? Retired people?

Never went in August. Been to Starfish Varadero twice. We enjoy this Resort. Great people working at Starfish. It's more of a family resort. Hope this helps you out. There is more then one Starfish resorts in Varadero.

I find in August in Cuba more European tourist, fewer Canadians that's why I go in August and weather is great.

I stayed at the Starfish Varadero a couple of years back for the last week of July/first week of August. The resort wasn't busy, but wasn't dead either. The guests were typically either Canadian or Cuban while we were there. At the time, the guests were a mix of families or younger couples. It wasn't really a party resort during our stay, but that can change based on who arrives in any given week.

We were there in September......the main pool ( closest to the beach) was almost completely taken over by Cuban families ( lots of kids)

This is NOT a criticism, they were all having a lot of fun, and it was nice to see.

However, as a couple of senior women, who prefer a bit of peace and quiet, we found the other pool ( behind the hotel) much more to our taste.

We actually only use the pool for a quick dip in the late afternoon, after spending the day on the beach and in the ocean, and ( since we were staying in the main hotel) this suited us perfectly.

It is a nice resort, with a gorgeous beach, and a nice mix of guests....families, seniors and quite a few younger people too.

Which one? I went to Starfish Varadero in August one year. It was busy enough. The pool bar/restaurant by the front pool wasn't open, but it was otherwise lively. Lots of Quebecois and Cubans on vacation. The Cubans were fun to share a hotel with.

I really liked the hotel. :o)
