My boyfriend, my sister and her husband and I stayed at this hotel July 9 -14, 2014. I would not recommend this place to anyone and would definitely not go back. I have been to CUBA seven times and this is definitely the worst hotel I have stayed at. Housekeeping was to a minimal. We never had enough towels in... More

Traveling solo was no problem staying in this great hotel. It was easy to walk out the front door to all the shops and restaurants in Downtown Varadero. I felt very safe all the time. My room was comfortable and I slept like a baby. Entertainment was great especially the Water Ballet. But by far the Staff made my stay.... More

Was here again mid May. Hotel was just as good as last time in mid March. Food still quite acceptable for Cuba standards. Not comparable to North American or European standards but it is good for Cuba. The Hotel management has brought in European chefs to help out with the offerings and presentations. It has made for a good offering.... More

I loved this hotel. It's not the most fancy hotel I've been to but for what you pay, it's awesome! The beach is one of the best I've ever seen! Stunning! The hotel is small so you get familiar with the staff and every single one of them treated us like royalty! The restaurants are always accessible (unlike some larger... More

The location of this Hotel is ideal as it is right on Varadero main street. The staff in the Hotel are for the most part very friendly, exempt for a girl named "Ytayna" from the front desk she was just rude and unhelpful, and we heard from other people she is just rude with everybody. The animation people were just... More

Hello everyone: First let me say that we were upgraded to the Barlovento from the Kawama when it was overbooked for a Cuban delegation of metallurgists. This was from April 20-27 and it was a delightful upgrade. This is an adults only hotel and this was my first experience at such a hotel. All the packages advertise pretty much the... More
