I’ve been to Cuba many times, but this is a first time when I believe hotel was way overrated.

Varadero beach varies a lot depending on the resort. At Royal Hicacos, it is large and clean. Plenty of chairs

The beaches are beautiful, clean. Not crowded, some had beach bars some didn't . Some chairs were in good condition and some were not (you have to look around)

I enjoy snorkeling but you really need to be able to see in the water or why be there. The dolphins were so sad in the middle of a cement cage it was sad and I really hated being part of it.
