The stay on this mansion was amazing, considering that this is a piece of very luxurious history, with very amazing architecture. The rooms are very spacious and stylish; and the view from the balcony was formidable, as it gave me a great and close view of the beach. I would recommend making a reservation through this website: http://www.varaderogolfclub.com/en/accomodation.asp because of... More

Having spent 2 weeks travelling around Cuba and staying in some good/some not so good hotels, we decided to treat ourselves to a room here. The building is fantastic, the architecture amazing and the bedrooms vast. The shower in our bathroom being bigger than a single bed. Really enjoyed the hotel and especially the bar on the 2nd floor with... More

After spending a wonderful fortnight travelling around Cuba and having some very good local food we wound up in Varadero and decided to have a special meal at the restaurant advertised in guide books as the best on the peninsula. The setting is wonderful but I am afraid that the food was less than impressive. I ordered lamb as a... More

Six people in our group and we decided to take a break from our all-inclusive and had a lovely evening at Zanadu. The Mansion is absolutely beautiful. The food, wine and service were excellent and the music, fantastic! The prices were consistent with what we would pay for similar food and wine at home. Unfortunately it was a stormy night... More

My mother and I went to Mansion Xanadu for a nice dinner out. This was our second trip to the Mansion for dinner (we were there last year as well) because we loved the view and the feel of the place. It is very beautiful with lots of wood and wonderful architecture. The food is expensive but that was okay... More

What a wonderful place! Full of history and with excellent service and food. The place to start your holiday. Especially when you are looking for something special and you do not want to stay in an ‘all-inclusive’ establishment. Here is THE romantic and cosy place to be in Varadero. Close to a wonderful beach. Just perfect….

As the previous reviewer has stated, this was originally called the Dupont Mansion, built by the family that started the Dupont chemicals empire. It's an amazing place and very different to the all-inclusive hotels which line the Varadero beach. It has historical character in spades and a very refined, upmarket feel. We ate at the restaurant, overlooking the sea, and... More

Mansion Xanadu is the former Dupont family house in Varadero. Google it to find more info. The family house is now a 6 room hotel and could be described as the golf course hotel as it is located just by the entrance to the golf course. The place is absolutely magnificent, nothing has changed in the last 50 years, it... More
