Spent 6 nights here in June 2012. The hotel, whilst looking slightly dated, is reasonable and littered with plenty of helpful staff members. Having spoken to several people who have visited cuba on previous occasions, they all stated that the food here was better than all other hotels in Varadero. The main buffet area, had a good mix of food that was very nice, and each night had different themes to the food, e.g. Mexican. The staff here are also very helpful and serve you with drinks etc.
The hotel also had al a carte restaurants which you had to book into at the main reception. We could only try the 'Japanese' and the beach bar, as all tables where fully booked for the whole week in all restaurants and these where the only available tables. The effort was greatly appreciated, but the execution of the food was not the best. I would try the beach bar al a carte again, however, I would avoid the 'Japanese' as it really wasn't nice. Do not let this put you off the hotel though as the food in Jimmys buffet area was very good indeed.
We spent all of our days on the beach, and if you are into it the beach staff organise games of football, volleyball, bowls etc. If there are any lazy people who do not put their rubbish in the bins provided, a person will regularly make a sweep of the beach area and collect all rubbish. (Which should not be necessary).
The pool looked like it could do with a bit of maintenance also.
My greatest advice to anybody visiting here is to bring their own cup! We only had our drinks out of the small plastic party cups. Everybody else had bought a large Cuban mug from the shop on the hotel (sold out when we went to get one!), and so this can be a small item that will make your days lazing on the beach a bit better when you can get a larger drink.
Finally the bed arrangements are not the best for a couple. 2 large single/queen sized beds pushed together is not great.
The hotel has no WIFI which is a negative. I believe all hotels should provide free wifi to guests.
