Having booked in Oct. and our travel agent asked for third floor and told them it was our wedding anniversary we were very disappointed with the musty first floor room assigned us. Back to the front desk we went and after a long wait we got a decent room on the third floor. Our other complaint would be the cigarette... More

So, what can I say about this place that I have not already? This place is wonderful and the staffs are the best! Osmany, to see the smile on your face was worth the trip in itself! Check in was a breeze as they were expecting us. I was off to ‘my room’ Room 326. The room looks out over... More

The location within Varadero was good. We were the first to get off the bus from the airport and last to be picked up on the way back. The beach was great and we loved the lobby, and the beach bar. We were super close to the market. It's the only one you really need to look at considering they... More

I enjoyed the hotel, beach, pool, food and drinks. Great location as you can walk into the town of Varadero, there is an Italian restaurant kitty corner to the resort, and an artisan's market a block away. There is also a bank which is the best place to change money, just past the Kawama resort, about a 10 to 15... More

On my day tour to Havana we we're the 2nd last stop, and the guide said it had taken an hour to pick everybody up (& would take that long to drop people... More

Everyone seems to have their own opinion about Cuba, the food, people, etc. For us we know what to expect and for our second time had one of our best vacations ever. The resort is comfortable and easy to find what you need. Was great was getting off the... More

Rooms definitely need updating but apparently the govt took away the resort's reno funds so they try hard with the little that they have. Nice location close to the market and restaurants. It's a quiet, relaxed setting if you are looking for an adult only resort though there is also ample opportunity for fun. Excellent quality evening shows - best... More

Travelled to Cuba alone and stayed at Roc Barlovento for a week. After checkin, 5am in the morning, got a drink at the 24 hour lobby bar and that was the start of a wonderful vacation. Met new friends there and Roc became like my home for the following week. The resort is small enough that you can forge new... More
