First visited as part of a BVSC night out package (picked up from hotel in convertible classic car, brought to Xanadu for dinner, then on to a bar & then to BVSC concert). The Mansion itself is absolutely "WOW" & deserves a visit in itself. Staff were friendly & the 3 course meal was beautifully presented. I had the Lobster... More

Every time I go to Varadero, I take the time to visit this wonderful place. The wood work and marble work is amazing. Make sure to visit Ruban in the upstairs bar and enjoy one of the great drinks he can make.

Mar 19 Our TO felt that our group should stop here for mojitos and a bit of R&R before checking in to our hotel. This is a handsome estate; I think the locals call it the Dupont House. This mansion exudes quality and high-style. Upstairs is a open air but roofed room where we enjoyed the local hospitality. A sax... More

Visited this mansion as part of a tour of Varadero hosted by our resort. This place is gorgeous!!! The furniture and the dark wood and the view...unbelieveable. We got to explore some rooms and the exterior of the building. The top floor has a bar with a live band. Our tour provided us with a free drink while we were... More

We spent a couple of nights here over the Christmas holidays, after a week visiting family and friends in Havana. This was a return visit to a place we know and love. As always, the beautiful beaches and great weather made for a very relaxing and enjoyable getaway. And the Xanadu continued to work its magic: a late evening drink... More

We spent our last night here after touring Cuba for 2 weeks. I loved the old world charm/style. Our room was spacious and as there are only 8 rooms it was nice to have a mansion almost too ourselves. The staff is delightful and most gracious. We had great service. The restaurant was quite nice as well, good food and... More

Visited Mansion Xanadu for a second time in December 2013, this time accompanied by my wife. We loved the beauty and style of the building and the beautiful and easily accessible beach. Having the golf course nearby was a real plus for me and my fellow golfers and not having to drive to play golf meant there was more time... More

As above! Bar is good, mojitos were the closest we came to a decent one (despite testing a lot in Havana and Varadero!), the staff were slick but the menu promised something that the cooking perhaps didn't quite deliver.

This mansion should be as we've read on other reviews heaven on earth, but it's really not. The house itself is lovely but it is all ruined by the way it is managed. The rooms are dirty as a creepy motel (hairs in the bed, dirty towels, suspicious traces in the shower), the staff is really unfriendly, impolite (they don't... More
