Let me start by saying that I have been a devout Iberostar customer for several years. I have also been to Cuba in the past, so I had an idea of what to expect. Having heard a lot about how amazing Varadero is, my family and I enthusiastically booked a week at this resort. Sadly, our experience here was awful... More

Everything about this hotel is great. I was very impressed with the Theater and entertainment! The food could be better, but fruits are very fresh. The hotel could use some repairs Will be going back soon.
