Great location, down-town Varadero in the entertainment district with several options to choose from literally across the street: Havana Club, Calle 62, The Beatles and many more. If your looking to party this is the location to be at. Your also able to take alcohol from the hotel bar and bring it to these venues which are mainly outside. The... More

Being our first time to Cuba March 27 to April 3rd we were pleasantly surprised with the Cuatro Palmas. We were reluctant to go to Cuba because of the food. But we found the food very good for a 3 star resort. Good selection and fresh fruit everyday. We would recommend bringing maple syrup and some jam since it is... More

Holy fight for loungers by the pool and beach. I've never had to fight for a lounger before as I did on this trip. I was more stressed out over this than spending a day at work. People were arguing amongst each other over the chairs. We were there the week of April 6-13. If you didn't have your lounger... More

I have been in this hotel last year (January 2014). The quality of service especially the food is better now. Main reason to choice the Hotel is the proximity of night attraction (calle 62, beatles Bar, Havana club). markets for souvenirs are also nearby. the beach is amazing. I stayed in the bloc 2 (Las Palmas section) the other side... More

Starfish Cuatro Palmas is in the actual city of Varadero and close to everything, including the Cale 62 night club, The Beatles bar, craft market, pharmacy, medical clinic, luxury stores, Casa del Ron, restaurants, taxis, park. The resort is small, and with super nice beach. But the number of beach chairs and palapas is an issue and you need to... More

Stayed here recently on a 7-day out of Windsor. April 2nd to 9th. We were on the last flight in for the evening and unceremoniously were dropped off across the street from the hotel. Didn't seem like an ideal start. My roommate then had a rough time checking in - originally they tried to put us in buildings 2/3/4 which... More

I was there from March 28th to April 4th. First, I must say that I was expecting less since it was a 3.5 resort. For me, it should be a 4 stars. I know some of the rooms need a little TLC but I heard that the place was closing for 2 months for renovations. The grounds are beautiful. The... More

Anieca, Mario and Jose just to mention a few were just fantastic. This isn't a five star hotel but... More
