This resort is located right in the middle of the Hicacos peninsula, nestled between many other resorts that are frequently quite a bit larger. However, having been to a few other much larger resorts, this petite, quiet and well-maintained resort was a welcome change. Nothing ever seemed rushed and if you have ever been frustrated waiting in line at the buffet or trying to get to the service desk before hundreds of other guests to book those a la carte restaurants, this place is refreshing in that it is exactly what it says it is: a resort - where everything is relaxed. There are no lines or screaming children despite not being an adult-only resort and service is great without the constant need to out-tip the guest beside you.
The rooms at the resort was clean and we had no complaints about any utilities. The beach seems closer because of how small the resort is and there are more than enough chairs and cabanas for the guests. The quality of the beach is also top-notch, which is quite universal in Varadero with few exceptions. The food was average quality with no surprises and not much choice. There is only a single a la carte restaurant that serves a mix of different-themed foods. It was okay but nothing spectacular. Overall the food was one of the weaker points of the resort. The beverage selection is as you would expect from any all-inclusive resort and you won't get top-shelf unless you ask for it.
The entertainment at night was passable. However it created more opportunities for us to either enjoy a cigar outside while sipping on some drinks or play some games indoors. If you prefer some alcohol-fueled, loud and dancing-filled entertainment at night you can still get that here but there is just less of an obligation or compulsion to do so because of the overall atmosphere of peacefulness.
There were a wide selection of excursions. We picked the one-day Havana rum and cigar tour and the catamaran cruise with dolphinarium visit and both were quite good. The rum and cigar tour tends to herd you towards a couple of popular sanctioned shops and though you'll never get a counterfeit product there, you can get the same things for cheaper at the airport duty-free.
