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

Dark room in bldg 2, now windows, no shower and TV working..waited 3 days to be moved. Horrible, should be closed.People are trying to please, must be standard practice to place you in the "hell hole" first to be later "upgraded when you complain to vacation rep. Did not unpack for 3 days, slept in clothes in +27C as 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

The place is run down a bit. The staff was very friendly , the security very good, the only downfall is the type of tourist from Quebec that come to this place "Most of them White Trash Uneducated Quebecers" their reputation is known in Cuba. They call them "Tabarnacos"....

This hotel is a tired, worn out place. It was very affordable, but again, you get what you pay for...we did not have hot water to shower 5 of the 7 days we were there. Food is VERY average at best, bordering on mediocre. The pool area has live music on many days of the week, which is quite good,... More
