My husband and I as well as a couple of friends stayed at Ocean Varadero El Patriarca from March 20th to 28th 2015. This resort is not a 5 star. According to me, it should be a 4 or 4.5 at most. We enjoyed our stay, yet left feeling disappointed. Check in was great. Fast and efficient which is always... More

A few girlfriends and I stayed at this resort at the end of March. We stayed in the privilege section, and I highly recommend this package. We had a nice private pool, and access to a bar that served premium drinks. Bartenders Jorge, Aida and Nestor were awesome. The main pool had a swim up bar and was also a... More

We were at the hotel, during the March break 2015. Very clean hotel, with friendly and efficient staff. Beautiful location. I like the fact that they had 4 rooms in each unit and not one single multi storey building. Food was very good. Mike's café was excellent. We had coffee and lattes every day. Nightly entertainment was reasonably good.

Perfect getaway to escape the Canadian winter. The only CON is, if you are wanting fine dining, this is not the place to go. Remember, this is a resort in a developing country and you go there for everything else they have to offer, which is amazing!!!!! Every meal we had was just like you would make at home (unless...

A girlfriend and I booked the privilege section of this resort on the recommendation of her travel agent. After reading the negative reviews, we didn't know what to expect. Fortunately, we had a pleasant experience although found some of the complaints to be legitimate. We arrived too late to take advantage of the privilege check in but I understand it... More

We very much enjoyed Ocean's and would go again. The resort was not so busy that you felt crowded and could relax. It was clean with the exception of little ants in the room and spacious. Everything was close no matter where you stayed on the resort. The beach had free included paddle boats, kayak's and a 20 min free... More

This is our third stay at this resort and we love it. First year only one week but two weeks since then. Jorge Luis and Aida at the pool bar rock. Tatania, was great. Tania in the piano bar keeps it moving. Alex in the lobby never fails to greet us with a smile, hug and a handshake. Nestor and... More

Just coming back. Good service but personal is not always friendly. Nice beach..If you want a palapas or a good beach chair you have to go at the beach before 6 am !!! To reserve your spot! Buffet is okay. Beach restaurant is a little buffet and just a few choices offered. Absolutely not a 5 stars Hotel. Very clean... More

If you are looking for ..Clean rooms ,beautiful beach ,sparkling pool, nice staff, great resort! Food was as good as it gets in Cuba! The buffet has numerous food choices, that you can actually create your own dishes! I celebrated my 50th birthday at the Italian restaurant and quite enjoyed the shrimp entrée! topped off with cake and a chorus... More

A group of 7 of us just got back from Ocean Varadero . We spent March break there. The easiest way I can think to do this review is to simply point out the pros and cons. Cons: We had to wait 2 hours to get our room because they said they had no clean linens. After telling the front... More
