The pool area is nice with pool bars and ice cream stands. At the beach there is a bar. There is also a coffee shop. Varadero... More

This was our 2nd visit to Varadero, and the same hotel. We were pleased with the perfect location near the beach, where we spent the days. We enjoyed the activity level both by the beach, the pool, the Lobby bar and the theater. The staff was very serviceminded and helpful. Room standard was good, cleaning very good, our responsible cleaner... More
