My experience staying at this resort was acceptable, after all it is Cuba and people should expect to see some decay. The staff was awesome! Easy access to the a clean beach and easy access to bus services was a must for me and this place delivered. Don't make this resort your number one choice if you're thinking of staying... More

I always get an apartment which comes with a fridge. the food still isn't very good but my partner in crime is Cuban & she actually liked eating here every meal because of the variety. I understand her economic situation doesn't allow her the opportunities I have in Canada so I dealt with it & it saved me money. There... More

I visited Varadero for my 4th time and for the 1st time I was traveling solo. It was the best experience I have ever had. I was sceptical at 1st booking a low budget hotel but it was awesome. The staff was great. My room was always clean. Thanks to Adrianna!!! Wonderful woman. There wasn't much variety for food but... More

I was very disappointed with the whole experience of this hotel. I love Cuba but wouldn't recommend this hotel. The pool was dirty and green, half the time the bar didnt have cups or booze. Just mainly beer

the pool is great and the animacion is very entertaining - especially on the odd rainy day. the food is typical food found in Cuba. the rooms are clean and are exactly as depicted - nothing fancy but you aren't staying in your room much. Staff are for the most part friendly.

The room walls were peeling with damp, and smelt strongly. No key for the safe, and just generally the room was in a... More
