The most beautiful beach, weather was perfect, loved some of the staff who were super helpful and made us feel welcome and changed the whole experience by their warmth and hospitality. Some of our favorite people were Yariana the cafeteria supervisor who made sure we were ok all the time, servers: Danisa, Yaday was so kind and always with a smile, Davier the cook, Lazaro and Yariel, Ana who cleaned our room so creatively everyday, Natasha who made the best coffee at the coffee bar and Rodney at the reception who was very helpful. The resort will not be the same without these people, thank you so much for the service you provided to our family.

This was my 20th visit to Club Kawama. My partner and I went with 3 friends who have also been at the hotel many times. We are always happy to see the staff we have become fond of over the years. They really make our stay a good one and we feel valued by them. We also come for the "best beach ever!" This year was a different experience for us due to the hard times in Cuba right now. The resort didn't have many selections and choices when it came to food at the buffet. We were thankful the Italian Restaurant was open at noon for pizza and/or pasta. Wine was only available on the resort 4 days of our two week holiday. A few other things were hard to come by or they ran out for short periods of time. The a la carte restaurants were also closed a few days due to the small number of clients at the resort. Our room in building 20 was comfortable, clean, great air conditioning and plenty of hot water. Building 20 seems to be so central to everything you will need. A special thanks to Leida for all she does for the clients at Club Kawama. I always appreciate her checking in with us to see how we are doing and if we have any concerns. She listens and truly cares. Other caring workers include: Madelaines, Dayne, Nancy, Yaniel, Natasha, Yulia, Yaidell, Yillian, Alan, Yaymeys, Denisa (Italian at noon), Nesca, Maday and so many more! We appreciate all you do for us. This is a very special place for us and we hope Club Kawama bounces back to the standard it was a few years ago.

I arrived a day late due to Flight error arrived at 10pm. Was put in the oldest part of the resort an all brick building inside as well! It was in a dark corner! It smelled musty, thd bottom sheet only covered 1/2 the bed...no cup in bathroom, no towels just 2 hand towels! The sink smelled like death! SO I rented an air b+b it was so much better! Their is little food in Cuba now stores and many restaurants are closed in Varadero! I feel for the beautiful people of Cuba but my 8th visit was depressing 😕

This was my 23rd stay at Kawama. I put a video on YouTube in February of my last trip. I love the staff after so many trips and I can't fault them for the management. I realize the country is hurting worse than ever but it is still my vacation I am hoping to enjoy. I took 4 friends and amongst our 3 rooms one had no hot water another no air conditioning and another a red ant infestation that overran the room. I stayed in my room with cold water. My friends changed rooms and the ones they got were worse than the ones they left. 3 of them will never return to Kawama. I'm planning a trip in December with 3 other friends and one in January with 3 different friends. They are all Kawama repeaters and I hope that my effort to bring money to Kawama will be repaid by more consideration to the repeaters who are trying so hard to help this resort it's staff and Cuba.

This would be the worst conditions of any trips to Cuba and as a Kawama Repeater. We always travel with an open mind and no high exceptions. We have been to Kawama many many times as a Repeater but never has it been this terrible. Many locals at the hotel this trip, rude people whose only concern was to overload plates of food to be placed in baggies and put in coolers to take home. They have no manners and no concept of lining up and waiting for their turn to get food,,,,sorry folks if l am in line you will not jump in front of me, l will put you in your place. The food or lack of.....l understand the tough times the country is going through but necessities are a must......Coffee, milk....bread....wine....beer...etc Swimming pool must be maintained daily.......hotel had no Chlorine hence the green glow of the water filled with small children and their parents.....they stayed in the pool ALL DAY.....how may bathroom breaks in the pool!!! All in all the vacation was very disappointing....none of the blame on the staff are to blame as they are all being told what to do by new management who in my opinion does not have a clue of how to delegate priorities of hotel requirements. Tearing down a beautiful reception is a total was of time and money, spend the money on things that need updating.......bathrooms in public areas, run down rooms with black mold. Canadians are generally passive understanding people but l think Mr Kawama Manager you have pushed this Repeater too far this trip, l doubt we will return unless things change drastically. And shame on you Mr Manager for treating your long time staff members so poorly, Kawama ran before you came and would run fine if you were to leave........

I booked 28 days here and lasted 2. No coffee..no milk..no ice..no cups..no chlorine for pool. Buffet was limited and locals were rude. Staff was excellent. My room was supposed to be an upgrade but the air conditioning barely worked. I spoke to regulars who had been going for years who said they would never return.

This was the first time we had gone to this resort but will NEVER EVER go back. The food was space and the staff was extremely rude and yelling at people. Was the worst experience ever. We stressed out more than we relaxed. No water food space no milk for coffee then there was no coffee the pool bar ran out of water and beer. Was the worst ever

We visited Club Kawama 3d time! This time we stayed August - September 2022. The service was horrible and price was double than we paid others 2 times! We are family of 3 people. I understand , that this is 3 * hotel, don't take me wrong. But we paid $900 per person, its the same price as we could pay for 5 stars!! I only chose this hotel ,because I had previous positive experience. I assumed that for this price the service would be much better and the room would be higher level. I don't complain about food, because it is Cuba and pandemic has affected it in negative way. I got it. On our arrival I asked for glass of water in the bar, and was denied because they don't have plastic cups. I was sent to the lobby for cups Receptionist was extremely rude. We didn't have water in the fridge even. I asked at reception and they sent lit later to evening. The absence of plastic cups was explained to me due the pandemic and economical recession. So, our first day was so frustrating. Eventually, receptionist gave for us 10 cups and said to save them and reuse. On the top of it we always tipped them up , we brought a lot of stuff from Canada : closing, dollar store stuff, children toys and closing. I used to do that all the time. Additionally, toilet wasn't flushing, no hair blow in the wash room. Only 1 bar soap for 3 people!! I needed to beg housekeeper to give for us a bar of soap of course with tips! Yes, she cleaned very good, she was so happy, brought extra bottle of water. Drinks in the bar were so limited variety, only rum and beer and sangria. So, i was so exited to come to Kawama ,but was very disappointed. Only beaches were spectacular this time and beach bar bartender, elderly man. I am still so upset with all of it, and I am not going at this hotel .anymore. I think, the staff became just spoiled , the need to be more controlled by the government or their providers.

I have been to this hotel before, so I was comfortable returning with my 11 year old daughter. The whole hotel has gone to hell. Room: Smelly and musty. The shower curtain was disgusting and the toilet didn't flush. I had to fill the back of the toilet with the shower head in order to use it. There was a leak from the room above, that the hotel refused to address. The safe didn't work, I was promised every single day for it to he fixed and never was which meant I had to carry cash and passports everywhere with me. Food: There was 0 dips for food. No margarine or butter, no ketchup, no mustard, no mayo, nothing. They hover over you while you use salt and then take it away. Cuba isn't known for good food, but it was worse. Drinks: I literally had to fight with them to get water. You're supposed to be able to buy it at the pool bar, but they refused to sell it to me. They would only give pop or booze. They even tried to give my 11 year old rum! Staff: Some were great! Some were downright disrespectful and inappropriate. They tried to force me to leave my bag (with all my cash and passports) at the entrance of the buffet, and when I told them no, they kissed their lips at me and shook their head like I was the bad one. One even asked me to bring him back to Cuba We met an amazing mom and son and made friends but all in all, this was a terrible week in Cuba. I will splurge for a better hotel next time.
