Now don't get me wrong this hotel is one of the cheaper options in Varadero and we specifically picked it for this reason as we were on a budget. We only stayed three days and 90% of the facilities etc are spot on. What let's this place down is the free standing detached restaurant where they serve the meals. The... More

Although this is a small hotel, it has a very homey feel. The staff is wonderful, the food is better than at most 5 Star hotels in Varadero and the service is bar none. Make sure you book a Superior Room or you may end up in a regular room which is not very nice! A Superior Room at this... More

As always at ClubTropical a great time was had, We continue to return because of location and the fabulous staff. Many friends have been made and that just makes the stay even better. Continuous improvement and reasonable price make this resort our favorite. One disturbing change is they are allowing many cuban locals (not guests) to use the resort for... More

Stay away from Holy Week and April school break at this resort. Too many Cubans "running" the resort. Can't get near the pool even if u wanted too...too many diapers in pool and too many dirty diapers left on beaches...sad... Varadero's beaches are dumping grounds for folks living there...not sure I'll be back?

We travelled to Varadero from 3-10 Apr 15 and stayed at Club Tropical. There were 3 moms and two 13 year olds and one 15 year old in our party (3 rooms). Overall the vacation was excellent. We paid $764 all in for the week and had no real expectations for the resort. Rooms: Upon arrival we were given rooms... More

Did not unpack for 3 days, slept in clothes in +27C as the... More

overall it was o.k. the food was the same as the rest but again not bad.I undestand that when we got there it was a cuban holiday so the pool was for the most part used by the locals. We asked several times for a fridge but never got one so for me that was my only real complaint. the... More

Yes the place is a bit run down, but I only need a place to lay my head, shower and eat! Staff is great, food is Cuban style but beats the heck out of going into the big resorts where there is so much food wasted. My BIG COMPLAINT is that most of the Canadians there were "litter bugs" very... More
