We stayed at The Playa Alameda Hotel from Jan 28 to Feb 4 2016 with a group from across Canada and had an amazing week. The food at the pool side bar was great, the buffet in the morning and evenings was delicious with lots of variety. But the best part of our day was seeing KUKU and COLON the... More

This hotel is definitely an older property. Dated rooms/amenities but they are working to construct newer facilities which is great. Outdoor areas are lovely. Beach is incredible! Service is the best!!

We just got back from a couples trip with three other couples. All the rooms were pretty much the same but smelled a bit musty on arrival. Once we opened up the patio door it helped. There was lots of selection of food at the buffet and we ate at all three of the a la carte restaurants. They were... More

Dear guest, On behalf of IBEROSTAR Playa Alameda I thank you for taking the time and reviewing us. It is true that recent weather conditions have not helped the inherent humidity conditions of the location of our resort. Never the less our rooms are cleaned and ventilated daily as well as Air Conditioning functioning constantly. This reduces drastically the humidity... More

Disclaimer: it rained everyday for a week so it definitely put a damper on a beach holiday! The hotel is dated and very rough around the edges. The resort is small so there isn't much to do. They do have Cuban music most nights which was great. The shows were decent and the same calibre of other resorts I've been... More

Dear guest, On behalf of the team at IBEROSTAR Playa Alameda we thank you for taking the time to post your impression on our hotel. Unfortunately the weather hasn't been the best lately, lots of wind, rain and cold, unusual for the months we are in. I guess climate changes are affecting all parts of the world indiscriminately. Never the... More

Hotel is a bit dated but staff are friendly and helpful and the basic amenities are all there. The beach is not the best, however, if that is your priority, because of the hotel's location. We were there during windy weather and could swim only one day on our stay. Closer to Varadero town, the beaches were less affected by... More

This was our ninth trip to the Caribbean, but our first to Cuba and we were very concerned in booking a hotel in very unfamiliar territory. Our fears of the unknown were augmented by horror stories of poor food, less than ideal accomodations, poor service, etc. To somewhat allieve these fears, we decided on the Iberostar brand as we were...

Looking forward to our visit this week Friday and giving this hotel a chance after mixed reviews. I always take out the highs and the lows in these reviews and find that it will end up matching my expectations. Back to you in a week or so with a detailed description.
