The Mystery and The Magic of Cuatro Palmas: Promising but No Cigar Anyone looking for a centrally-located, truly beachfront hotel who doesn't mind taking some chances, can't do much better than Varadero's French and Cuban-owned 3 1/2 star Four Palms hotel. The Magic This is a place where everything bodes well from the beautiful, compact property with splendid Spanish colonial... More

Spent 7 days (aug 23-30-14) and weather was sunny but very hot 40c and humid, 2 late afternoon heavy storms that lasted about 2 hours. Hotel service was beyond efficient and polite. Maid service advised us of toilet issues and hotel had us moved to a upgraded oceanview room with no extra cost. Food in buffet took getting used to... More

Another stay at quatro palmas. The management is again trying to improve the hotel. As most of people complain about meals at most Cuban resorts, we find the food to be okay and have never gone hungry or got sick after 15 visits to Cuba over the last 12 years. The staff at this hotel from reception to restaurants and... More

I went there in February 2014 and am going back in November. I loved it all .. the food, the sea, the people .... the smells ... and the culture. It depends what you are looking for. A great place to unwind and meet fellow travellers

I arrived and went to another hotel in Varadero. This hotel is a bomb, everything old, dirty, disgusting! Not have internet, I see the food and was not eatable. I'm going to Tuxpan, was better. Not recommend to anyone. I'm still waiting for my refund.

I recently came back from a wonderful vacation in Cuba, and the hotel has a lot of pros and cons: Pros: 1) Amazing beach and super clean! The water is blue, white sand, perfect on a hot day! 2) Offers of bus tours and trips to Havana, and you get a lower price if you came with the sunwing airlines... More

My wife and I visited the Cuatro Palmas in November of 2008. We had reservations about going to Varadero, but the price was right, so there we were. Room was average, but we were on the ground floor, and the "balcony" was extremely small, and it was only about six feet away from the busy street that ran in front... More

For the price I paid for this resort I expected it to be on the same level as other resorts for the same cost nearby (Arenas Blanca/Bellvue Palma Real) but it wasn't. I went to these resorts because Palmas didn't have foreign exchange counter, what an inconvenience. Other cons: - no pool bar - only one bar is open at... More

Average hotel standard of the building. Poor service with a couple of exceptions. The Cuban attitude makes you not want to come back. They always make you feel like that you have to tip them to get any kind of service or a smile. The restaurant's food was substandard.

This is the third time that I will be in Cuba - and the third time that I will be staying here - with my family - we went in July the last two years. The location is perfect! Beautiful beach, cleaned early every morning. Great swimming. Lunch at the beach restaurant is excellent. Limited choice, but all excellent -... More
