I just returned from the Puntarena in Varadero. I (was) slated to stay at Playa Caleta however, it is being renovated and would seem to house only a few Cubans at the present time. SO, there is no swim up bar as it is there and is 'unstaffed'... SO, I stayed at the sister resort next door. I WISH to... More

Myself and eight others stayed at the Puntarena, the brother resort to the Playa Caleta. Went down under the impression that you can go back and forth between the two resorts. Which is true you can, but the Playa Caleta is closed due to being condemned and none of the online options for the resort were available. Not even a... More

This was my 3rd time at Playa Caleta. It has now merged with with the Puntaarena which is the next door resort. Guests can now use amenities at either hotel which I really enjoyed since the scenery doesn't get as stale. I personally thought the buffet and bar at Playa Caleta had better service, was also glad to see that... More
