This was my first successful trip to Hotel Kawama--I tried earlier in the spring to find them overbooked. This time we had no problems--we'd booked two rooms and had two rooms waiting for us. Check-in: Low season, and we were the only three to get off of the transfer. We were greeted with a smile, and informed that our standard... More

This was our 3rd time staying at Kawama...our last experience wasn't so go, but this time was great, The staff and food have improved, rooms still need renovating, but if your lucky to get into a good room all is great, grounds need some tlc, beach was awesome. This time half the resort was closed, and one entire section was... More

I define this hotel to be good only for couple of days. We had standard rooms with which we were satisfied, but since it was our first time in Cuba and we spend 2 days in Kawama only (than we traveled to Trinidad and Habana) we were satisfied. Hotel was ok, beach was great but it was almost empty (June... More

First time in Cuba and I picked the best place to be! Kawama is simply georgous! Hotel staff are very friendly. The beach is simply breath taking..the entertaiment is fun,funny and the dancers are wonderful! I would go back in a heartbeat, as a matter of fact, I can't wait till April 2015 when I go back!

I'm 20 years old and went with 2 of my best friends from May 4 - May 19. We had read every review we could find and decided to take a chance on Kawama because the reviews were 50/50. We have stayed in some very questionable hotels in Turkey, so we're used to not the best conditions. Kawama however, is... More

We were happy with the short bus ride from the airport to the hotel, and were first in line to check in when we arrived at 11pm. Our rooms were clean, yet small and plain. The beach was gorgeous, and the pool was freshly renovated. There were three days when the water was too rough for swimming, which we spent... More

At the front lobby when you arrive there is a bar where can receive a nice cold drink non alcoholic or alcoholic. Once you've checked in you have a beautiful beach to relax or a georgeous new...

Kawama is the oldest hotel in Varadero, it looks like a fort or a castle. The rooms were quaint nad the big stone walls were mold free... I had great maid service, friendly reception, lobby bar was excellent service, food was good... nothing to complain about. Its right on the beach, rooms have a safe, balcony, airconditioning, fridge, and even... More
