we have been to pesquero a few years ago and really enjoyed it ,its a large lively hotel with two large swimming pools , one was closed when we were there but still lots of room, we are off to iberostar tomorrow, i get the impression it will be a quiter atmosphere, if you have not decided by the time we are back i will give you an opinion on the two

It is a very difficult choice. The Playa Pesquero is a larger hotel with 944 rooms.

If you want a night life outside of the resort choose Varadero but if that's not important to you, I'd opt for the Pesquero.

We were in the exact same dilema a few month ago, we ended up choosing Iberostar Varadero. IBV is smaller with 380 rooms, PP has 912 rooms(or 944 depends on sites). PP was hit by hurrican in 2008 and vegetation took a hit, because of that IBV seemed to be more lush. It also seemed to have more shade available, and to us that was important(2 young kids). These were the main factors that made us pick IBV. We liked it a lot. I posted a review on it.
