Good position, close to the ocean. We had big bedroom, but most or rooms are very small. Very poor maintenance. Cleanliness at the minimum level. Very bad pressure in water pipes. Lazy staff. Expensive (cca 3 EUR/day) beach towels for rent.

We stayed our last night in Cuba in this Hotel. The rooms werent really clean, we checked three different rooms bec. eather the shower or the toilet was broken. The personnel wasn't really engaged to help or even give you a better impression of this hotel. Breakfast was ok, but not a good quality. We would definitely not choose this...

We are a group of 9 friends that had 3 days to stay in Varadeo. We were looking for a place without all incusive meals because we had a short period to stay and we wanted to do other activities there (not stay in the hotel). We also wanted to try the local restaurants and not only the all inclusive...

Stayed one night, very shabby. Two star hotel, and no pretensions otherwise from the owners. Good location to the beach. Value OK for one night together with breakfast. Out of season rate 35CUC (CDN$45)for a single with beakfast. 45CUC for a double.

There is no elevator in this hotel. Instead, you need to climb 2-3 floors by wooden, uneven stairs. Bend your head, so you don't bump it on the extremely low ceiling! We were given a room without a toilet seat and we were told that it's not the hotel's fault that it's missing. The double-beds are extremely narrow, they suit...

Like others here we had booked the Pullman and were then sent down the road with our luggage to this dump. I realise on a budget you can't expect The Ritz, but we arrived to the bar downstairs banging out its sound system right underneath....which continued until the wee hours. We moved rooms after I electrocuted myself on an open...

I enjoyed the on site restaurant and proximity to the free public beach and small market shopping and dining area. The room was clean and conformable with an air conditioner. The bathroom had a window on the door so there was a lack of privacy . I stayed here as part of a school trip and it met our basic...

We were booked in the Pullman but stayed here as it the sister hotel. Room was clean, friendly helpful staff, breakfast was ok, again nice staff in the restaurant. It had a beach bar a couple of minutes walk from the hotel, the staff didn't rush you even though it was closing time. Great location with plenty of bars and...
