Fabulous beach

Probably the best beaches we have ever been to. Fully recommended, also the Varadero town bus tour, well worth it.

Varadero beaches are clean, sandy, and water is fairly shallow for a good ways out. The public beach is as nice as the hotel and resort beaches (except no chairs) plus there's a better choice of nearby bars and restaurants.

We were in Cuba for the first time (me/husband), we loved the resort. Was clean and our maid was just the sweetest. We didn't have the best weather but overall had fun!. After supper was so exciting and romantic as we watched shows and even had a piano show in the lobby.

Lovely sandy beach just down from our hotel. Water was clean and clear. We were not bothered by anyone selling goods.

I played golf there 3 times, on one hole you are sort of on a small cliff overlooking the ocean. The water was the most beautiful I have ever seen. The color was to die for. So light blue ,clear and clean. It epitomizes the tropical waters you see on TV.

Its a beautiful, endless and white sandy beach with clean water and gorgeous nature. The palm trees are everywhere. Great for chilling and getting tan.

Our trip to Cuba was well planned and we did not expect to spend our time on a beach. But experiencing Varadero beach shifted our plans. At least, we modified one day and we spend it only over there. Just amazing place to be...

Always a pleasure to return to Varadero beach. We have stayed in several different hotels along the beach no matter which hotel the beach is always welcoming.
