April 2014. We booked a trip to Varadero Cuba. We stayed one night at the Oasis. We arrived at 4am and the place was dark, The bellboy took us to our room down hallways that had no lights and were almost impossible to see in. The room was very poor. We had pre-ordered a balcony room but were put in... More

I went into an Cubatour-office in Santioagigo de Cuba and asked the woman if she could help me and call a hotel I had found in Lonely Planet, a quiet place where I could relax the last two days before my 10-11 hour plus 1 hour flights back home. She did, but every room at that hotel was booked, 'But... More

We knew what to expect after reading the reviews so we went with an open mind and tried to plan it like a camping trip with a roof over our heads. With this in mind, we were pleasantly surprised. The first room was ok.. but it was on the ground floor and I always like a 2nd floor room in... More

Like so many others, I no high expectations of this hotel, but for the basic price of $205 plus taxes, I could not go wrong. Booked on Tuesday for the Sunday flight, as this is what I would do again. The hotel has a nice beach, with Palapas, beach bar, but not beer as it is only available at the... More

We have taken many trips now & this was the worst ever. When it rained the sewer drain in the bathroom backed up all over the floor & the stink was terrible. We both are not picky eaters but this buffet was very very bad. We had to go out to eat quite a lot. It was not many choices... More

My sister and I stayed at this hotel in mid-February 2014. We knew going in that it was a 2-star and expected it to be so. The room: -we lucked out and had a spacious room with three beds -very basic, our TV worked and so did the A/C which was awesome -our water did not get hot, which wasn't... More

February 20-27, 2014. First time to Varadero. This small resort, built in 1956, surprised us. We have stayed in another 2 Star rated place near Havana (Las Terrazas) and this is a definite step up. The pool was always maintained, the beach was indeed a private one, and there was a large selection on food choices available in the buffet... More

The hotel was created in 1956 so it is smaller and has developed gardens, the lay out is lovely. Our room was large and had an exquisite view from the balcony-the sea was about 20 yards away and we could hear the waves while sleeping. Our air conditioner, beds, bathroom and room amenities were good. The maid was a little... More

Lets start with it is a 2 star in Cuba so don't expect anything near perfection. This is what you will get all for a great price. The staff are excellent, friendly and accommodating. The food is limited but better than some 4 stars I have stayed at in Cuba. We had lamb, pork, fish and rabbit -yes rabbit try... More
