This is our second visit to the Barlevento. We were in Cuba 7 years ago, and since then the hotel has changed to an adult only, the food has improved 100 percent. My husband is very picky and found something to eat everyday. We did 2 of the al a cartes, and they were a wonderful experience and the food... More

This was our first visit to this resort and second to Cuba. Our expectations were well met as we had read reviews and understand the fact that we are getting a week away from Canada's cold winter for an extremely reasonable price. Somebody cooks for you (there is always something even a fussy eater can find), rooms and resort are... More

Stayed January 9 - 16, 2015, I based my decision to stay at this resort on other reviews which, the majority were favorable. I've been to Varadero once before so I know that you have to be prepared for limited quantities of food, hotels not up to standard,etc. however, this was totally substandard. The food was not good to terrible,... More

I will make this short. Advertised as a 4 star by Sunwing. I would give it a 2.5 to 3 star at most. The most frustrating thing was the staff. i have been to Cuba many times and no where have I found less service oriented staff. Tables never wiped, no ashtrays, no internet cards, no hairdryers for room and... More

We have been to most places in Cuba and have had some pretty bad experiences but never had any trouble with the staff or people anywhere. Roc Barlovento is cheap and you get what you pay for, so think about some of the dumps you have stayed in elsewhere in your lives.. We are going in April to R.B. for... More

Stayed for 3 nights, weekend away 9-12 of January to celebrate my birthday . The place was a complete joke. Depressing and more like a nursing home . Everything is old and mouldy... No entertainment except for one hour during evening , no life ... Rooms are horrible , customer service is bad at the reception. The staff is ok,... More

I went to this resort from Dec 31 - Jan 7th. It was my first Cuban experience! I had an amazing time!! I was on the third floor and loved it. The bartenders were great, tip or no tip. The grounds were beautiful! The maids took care of my room, again tip or no tip. Can I just say, back... More

Roc Barlovento was our first trip to Cuba and was a huge disappointment. Staff-not friendly or helpful, if you tipped every time then yes but otherwise they ignored you and this was true in all areas of the resort Food-not edible, almost like pig slop. The hot sauce we brought from home could not even help. Most of the time... More

We have been to cuba for the past 11 years staying at a few different resorts and now find ourselves very happy at the ROC Barlovento! Sure the rooms can be repaired and upgraded! But I suppose we just know how to deal with the Cuban culture. We love it here and hope to be returning again within the next... More
