nice views fro bar

visited this mansion but we could only get access to the bar at the top of the building. The staff were not overly friendly and the cuba libre we had to drink was not very good. Other than the view being great it was nothing to speak of

Reservations were made for our group of ten at this fabulous monument to pre-revolution times. Originally built and owned by DuPont, Xanadu now boasts an excellent golf course, hotel rooms, a bar with an extraordinary 360 degree view, and a lovely dining area that provides al fresco dining overlooking the turquoise water. ....and, the food was very good!

We visit the mansion with the Varadero City Tour. We were told the history, had a drink upstairs in the bar. Beautiful view of the gold course and the beach. Great atmosphere where you can enjoy the view, a drink and listen to the musicians play.

After 18 holes in the blazing Cuban sun, a fantastic place to have a few Cuba Libre's and tell lies to your golfing buddies. The architecture on the top floor is out-of-this-world and the view from there is fantastic.

We stopped here on the way back to our hotel in the late afternoon, which did not do the place justice. I would recommend you take a taxi here from your hotel for a tour and dinner. It is an amazing house with lovely details and period furniture. It is well maintained for the most part. The views are amazing... More
