Drinks after Golf

We went up a winding staircase to the bar with the most spectacular view. After golfing in high heat, it was definitely wonderful to while away an hour with ice cold drinks while enjoying own live group of Spanish musicians.

A step back into an earlier era. The roof-top bar (formerly the casino for his friends) is not to be missed.

This is right beside golf course and we looked at the outside on a walk from the hotel. We did take the Varadero city tour for $9.00 cuc and toured it. Had a drink in the bar upstairs. Architecture is fabulous and the view from the bar fantastic.

What a beautiful house - building. Inside and out. Lovely setting right on beach. Romantic setting for dinner outside.

spent the last night of our holiday on the top floor watching the sunset with a large Majito. The hotel is stunning full of marble floors and expensive Mahogony stair cases. A saxophone player played as we watched the sun go down over Varadero. This is a must.

Great location, the view is amazing - food is very good, slightly overpriced. Worth the visit if you need a break from your all-inclusive!

This wonderful house was a residence of a millionaire DuPont, who owned a big part of Varadero-peninsula. It was also him who built the first golf course near his house, the predecessor of 18-hole course of Varadero we can play at now. The house belonging now to Varadero Golf Club, there are lodgings, restaurant and a bar/café on the top... More

The Xanadu offers an inviting place for lunch or a drink when visiting the Varadero section of Cuba. Food & service were excellent & dining at one long table on the porch was a treat during the lovely weather. Worth a stop for sure,& if you have time, a meal with a Mojito !!

We were at an all inclusive resort about 15 minutes from this retaurant and decided to make a reservation for supper as we had heard from friends how good the lobster was. We caught a taxi and arrived at the restaurant 2 hours before our reservation so we could go up to the bar and enjoy the view as well... More
