My room was beautiful, the food was fresh, plentiful and tasty. I was impressed with: the dining room staff, my room attendant, the breakfast chef, the front desk personnel, the pool attendant and the coffee barista. The Cuban coffee is really excellent! A new towel origami every day! There is WIFI in the lobby for limited hours. It is an... More

After three nights in Havana, this hotel was a welcome respite. The staff were friendly, accommodating and attentive to our requests. The food was plentiful, the entertainment, vibrant, passionate and energetic, Most importantly the all inclusive was as expected. The buffet food was good but not great, the bar staff were quick and helpful and really we didn't feel stressed... More

We went to the Roc Barlovento because of its handy location at the top of the Varadero strip and we were well rewarded.Close to everything & only $5 open air cab to the end of the strip. Great friendly staff. Food was better than I was anticipating and the bartenders all made good drinks... what more can you ask for.... More

I stayed here for two nights, I can't imagine staying here more than 4. The entertainment changes- which by the way is world class entertainment- but the town and hotel are not big enough to warrant more than 4 full nights. It becomes monotonous, but if that's what you want from a vakay this is the place. I prefer to... More

Ok. So the food was not the best, it's Cuba. We stayed for three weeks and never went hungry. The location is perfect, within walking distance to markets, convenience store, car and scooter rentals there are many great restaurants a stroll away or jump in a coco taxi,cab, or a. horse drawn carriage for an larger selection. The hop on... More

Yup, there were horror story reviews we read before going, but overall we were very pleased with the Barlovento. The biggest pleasant surprise (based on reviews) was the quality of the food. It was very good! Not a ton of variety, but well prepared, tasty, and served by some of the friendliest waiters and waitresses we've ever had! Excellent location... More
