It was wonderful returning to the Barlovento and being greeted by the staff. Juan Jose, the manager made sure that all arrangements were to our satisfaction. We were at the Barlovento between low and high season so some of the a la cartes were not in full operation. The Mexican and Italian restaurants both operated out of the Mexican Restaurant... More

Just returned from a 3 week stay in your hotel. The management, the staff, are wonderful people and try to do everything possible to make you comfortable. The only thing they don't have control of, is the weather. We did hit some rain, wind, cloudy days, cool days, but all in all our second experience at this hotel was wonderful.... More

I've been to this hotel many times and for the last couple of years I've been going twice a year. I never regret it. Since the change of management, now with Juan, we've notice a focus on personalizing your stay at the hotel. The staff is extra nice (was always good, but noticed a change). Food is very good and...

Returned to the Barlovento Nov 15 - 27, 2014. Extra special treatment by Juan, Katia and the rest of the staff. I have nothing but good things to relay as I love everything about this resort. My return visits do not go unacknowledged. I appreciate everything that the hotel has to offer. One of the most recent changes to this... More

So where to start. We booked this trip last minute to Cuba. We have always liked Cuba but never been to Varedero. The resort was lovely but the rooms were one of the worst. I know you only sleep in them but there are some issues. The good the pool was so clean, the food was good and the people... More

Dear customer. Sorry for your bad experience with our room. I wish I could have help. The renewal process of many rooms will be completed later this month and will continue in 2015.

We arrived at the Barlovento Nov 24/14, and were looking forward to a wonderful week of R&R, and the Barlovento delivered it with no problems. I am not sure what some of the people are expecting when going to hotels, we go for a vacation, some good memories, a meal that will not leave you hungry, a room and comforts... More

Dear customer. We appreciate your comment and for your time to write about our Hotel. Hotels are never the same from one day to another and sometimes we succeed and others fail with our customers. But keep the same enthusiasm for improvement. Cuba can not be compared with other locations with more resources. However, it is a country that opens... More

Dear Customer Sorry about the hot water. Indeed, we had several problems during your stay with the hot water, and sometimes not come out as hot as expected. Fortunately we changed part of the installation made 22 years ago and by 2015 the plans is to change the rest of the installation. We know our weaknesses but we are becoming... More
