I stayed at the Playa Caleta in January 2015 for 7 days/6 nights. Over I think we got what we paid for -- the location was lovely, food and drink were plentiful and the resort shows were entertaining. Here's an overview of the different elements of the hotel: Room: 3.5/5 Our room overlooked the canal on the fourth floor and... More

My husband and I travel twice a year. We have been all over. This is the worst, most disgusting resort you could stay at. We had another couple with us. I was so embarrassed to have them see this place. The food has flies all over it. All over the tables, just disgusting. The wait staff are lazy and beg... More

The food was decent and the staff was fine. Our maid Maria was friendly and efficient as well as one of the buffet servers and the pool bar staff. The rest... More

The hotel is older and could use some work, but it's clean, the food is good and the service is great. We've stayed there 3 times now and, yes, it does need some work. It's close to Varadero (there is a free shuttle bus every day, or a quick taxi ride) and there is a bank where you can change... More

I went to resort at the end on August of 2015. It was a great family resort to visit. The beach was beautiful but had a lot of shells, beautiful white sand though! The food was decent, nothing extravagant but enjoyable. The staff are friendly and helpful. The entertainment in the evening was good and enjoyable plus interactive. If you... More

Some rooms remodelled. Ours was not. Food very poor. Grounds very close to beach. 40 feet from door. Reserving dining rooms/restaurants tedious. Noisy all night until 05:00. If you go here because of price.... You get what you pay for. We would return to the Varadero area but not less than a 4 star. Cuba rates the resorts differently. Slow... More
