This is a 3.5 star review but didnt feel I could offer 4* I booked this hotel in Jan '15 for a 9 day all inclusive holiday from 11th July '15 without much research and thereafter was concerned about the reviews, however, I was pleasantly surprised and think you will be too! We had a small budget this year for... More

Unless you speak an European language you will feel in the minority and this should be stated in the advertisements/ brochures. Being an "open" hotel, a lot of the entertainment was in Spanish, although the entertainment team did their best it was still very immature .We felt very isolated ,expecting a British clientele but it was very cosmopolitan..Part of any...

I've stayed at the Varadero a few times this year. The hotel is clean and the food is good. It is only a short walk to a major tourist strip near a black sand beach at Playa la Arena, and buses to the rest of the island run frequently from the various stops around the hotel. The "all inclusive" deal... More

We enjoyed the stay at Barcelo Varadero. The food was of a very high level. Animations, especially for children were sensational. Poko cleaned on a regular basis, mattresses were very comfortable.....

Hotel is located pretty much far from everything: beach, nightlife and sightseeing spots. The food was literally horrible, not much of a choice, overcooked veggies and bad tasting water. At night you could see mice and cockroaches, which was kind of gross. The pool was really nice, many different ones with different depth, which was really cool since we came... More

After 6 nights in Barcelo Varadero, I realized that this 3* hotel is better than I expected and I can honestly say it's maybe been quiet better than few hotels in Egypt rated as 5* ... All inclusive service is based as self service with drinks, alcohol and snacks during the day. Just between 17-19:00 is the some kind of... More

We stayed as a couple at this hotel for 10 days June 2015. Staff were absolutely amazing and as were the team of entertainers from animacion. Despite previous reviews stating entertainment was directed more towards spanish there was extremely good efforts made to entertain for all customers from every country in at least four different languages and catered for all....
