This is a clean and moderate hotel. We did not go in with high expectations so we were pleased with our selection. Great location, friendly staff, I thought the food was exceptable. You could order fresh omelettes for breakfast, fruit, toast. Bring your own peanut butter if that's a staple for you. There was a very small selection of cereal... More

We loved Roc Barlovento. Friendly staff, air conditioned, great food, close to markets in Veradero, extremely clean beach and grounds, excellent entertainment, perfect coffee, they accommodated our room requests, smooth check in and check out. For tours we were the last resort to be picked up and the first to be dropped off, giving us less time on the bus.... More

We ended up changing from Club Kawama to this hotel and we were so happy we made this change! Our room was nice...just the way I remembered it from 11 years ago but a little nicer. The grounds and the staff were amazing! Cuba still has a long way to go in the food department...not really sure why this is... More

Our first trip to Cuba, spent the first week in Havana then went to the Barlovento. I hope everyone staying here appreciates how much the Cubans work to make everyone have a good holiday. Excellent staff. The food was very good, a little bland (i.e. few spices) but lots of it and well presented. The beach is awesome. The property... More

We had stayed at the Barlovento several times in the past, but this was our first visit since 2013. Some specific thoughts on our return visit: ROOMS We were in 351, which has been renovated and has a partial ocean view. The new furniture and beds were appreciated. The bathroom could still use updating, but everything worked fine. This room... More

We were at the Barlovento from the 16 to 30 january 2016. Like every hotel in Cuba it needs some update. The food is good and varied, the friday lunch near the beach is very nice with music and all kind o food.

First Impression: When we first arrived at Barlovento it was late in the evening. It was cool, dark and raining outside. The hotel lobby which features a bar, cafe and large lounging area was bustling with guests. At first glance, the lobby featured rather dated and worn decor, with guests that looked about the same. To be completely honest, I... More
