First of all - great location. Detached and in a quiet location but at the same time right on the edge of Varadero, tourist markets are in the walking distance, downtown is 15 minutes away by the bus. There are Havana tours offered by Cubatur (local agency) and your airline as well. Also they are going to build an aquapark... More

Stayed two weeks at this resort-firs time to Cuba. Reason we picked this resort is closer to downtown core and amenities--glad we took this route. First overall appearance of our room; not overly impressed but just there to get ready and sleep. Bed was not overly comfortable--had a backache for few days. Water pressure in shower non existent. Never did... More

Everyone needs to relax. First of all the dogs running around never barked or seemed scary they were always sleeping and completely docile. The cats are adorable I didnt even know they were all neutered thats great. The hotel puts food and water out for them in a roofed station called the "cat cafe". We got the Roc "Plus" room... More

This small resort is the perfect size with a BEAUTIFUL beach. The rooms are average but clean. We had a WONDERFUL maid named Teresa who took very good care of us !! More staff need to learn to communicate in English which we sorely missed hearing at this 99.99% Quebec patronized resort. SOME of the staff need a refresher in... More

We have just returned from staying at the Barlovento hotel for the fifth time in as many years.The property and staff are as nice as always,but I have no idea what they are doing with their food budget,for it does not show up at the buffet.Its the same thing day after day.They need to improve in this area.

First time to Cuba, and was surprised by what was available there, or more the lack of it, once I accepted that, my view changed. The resort was minimal in room quality, but does not advertise as a 5 star anyway. For the way you are looked after, the entertainment, staff friendliness the beach, pools I give them a great...

We had a great time at this resort. Always take the bad reviews with a grain of salt. If you're looking to complain, there will be something to complain about. The smaller atmosphere is what brought us here, and we'd recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing time with the option to party if they choose. We met some... More
