Overall, if you're looking for sun, sand and all inclusive beer, then this is the resort for you. Pina coladas and strawberry daquari were good sometimes but not consistent. Large younger party crowd here it seems. The beach is not typical of varadero, very coarse sand with shells and not kept clean of seaweed or jellyfish. Bathrooms in the lobby... More

Having stayed here before more than ten years ago I expected changes. Hotel itself is not luxurious which I knew ahead of time but is clean and comfortable. I was truly disappointed in the service. I don't know if it was my partner or my perception alone but most times we felt ignored by staff or even as though it... More

Ok so before my boyfriend and I went on this trip, we read all the reviews on this site and we didn't know how to feel, so we went in with no expectations. But after being there, I have to say, all the complaints on this place are people who wanted five star treatment but were too cheap to pay... More

We stayed from Jan 24 until Feb 7, 2015 at Puntarena as Playa Caleta was closed for renovations. Our travel agent did not tell us that and we were very disappointed. We had alot of other people tell us the same thing. We booked through Trip Central. When talking to the staff they claimed it was one in the same,... More

This was my 8th trip to Cuba, and my 4th to Varadero. The Playa Caleta is closed and guests are all transferred to the Puntarena I know what to expect food-wise and what not to - so I'd like to think that my review if objective and honest while based on previous experience. The good: Room was recently renovated and... More

the rooms were absolutely not clean, the 2 person-bed had 1 person drapes. The meals were 'food', but without any creativity or extra touch, every day the same. The lobby personal was unfriendly, the restaurant personal was friendly. The pools were good, the sandy beach also.I would certainly not go back. The noise from the beachhouse was a definite problem... More
