I was very pleasantly surprised when I walked into this resort. My only comparison is Mar Del Sur, but really the lobby is very beautiful, my room was amazing; very clean and updated, and the staff were very professional and nice.
So, the beds are cheap....... My bf jumped on his, and it broke. We joked about it for the trip, but when he went to the front desk and told them, the very promptly switched the beds up and brought us a 40 of vodka to our room. I was impressed.....
The third night at the resort I could really smell the whatever smell it is on the canal side. I remember that from last year in town as well. I really do think it is just Varadero in general, but I thought, why not and upgrade to an ocean view room for the rest of the trip. And wow, I am so glad I did. The view from our balcony was amazing. I savoured every minute of it. Just beautiful!!!!!!!
So, trip was great, resort was nice and clean, but my bf was kind of bored sometimes. I'm happy to lay on the beach but he wanted to do more stuff. We didn't bring a lot of money so we were depending on resort stuff. Red and yellow flags make for not so fun beach time for some people, but who can help that, right? Oh, and once I asked for a volley ball, and they said it was already signed out. One volleyball? huh.
It is what you make of it, the rooms are clean, the staff is great. oh, and the food really is not that bad, and the beach is breathtaking. No swim up bar though, and I thought that the main lobby bar (24 hour bar) maybe would have been better if it was outside.
