Nestled near a picturesque beach and a dolphinarium, Iberostar Tainos has been praised for its prime location. While opinions on value vary, the staff's warm and attentive service consistently makes for memorable stays. Room quality receives mixed reviews, balancing cleanliness and views with maintenance needs. The hotel's vibrant atmosphere and entertainment options are celebrated, though some guests suggest room for improvement.

Calgary, Canada2 contributions
The resort is beautiful and the beach the best I’ve ever seen, warm water, soft sand. The food was pretty good, easy to eat healthy. The staff were nice. The entertainment was top notch during the day and night. I would stay here again, but I can’t: the hotel rooms had bugs, all of our 3 rooms had blood etc stained sheets, a/c too cold or not working, you won’t get a towel, no safe.

I've been to Iberostar Tainos several times in the last Year and have had an amazing vacation at Tainos. The Staff Employees are absolutely amazing and they will go out of their way to help you with whatever is needed. The grounds are well kept by the amazing Gardeners 👏 always plenty of different choices of food for your 3 meals a Day. I would highly recommend this Hotel for tourists traveling to Varadero Cuba 🇨🇺 in the future.

We were there for the first two weeks of January. As everyone says the beach and the gardens were amazing!! It’s actually hard to describe how beautiful and well kept they were!! And some of the staff were very friendly and gentle!! The structure itself is in a kind of decay state. We were in a bungalow with cracks and holes all around were all kind of insect could go in and out as they please, Curtains, towel and sheets were old and full of blood stains, the toilet was not flushing properly (imagine a holiday were you need a bucket of water every time you go for number two) and let’s not even mention the smell coming from the drain…….. The sun-beds were broken, old and uncomfortable!! The beach towel most of the time were not available Food and drink: I know it’s Cuba so I’m not talking about the variety and the quality but everything was cold and uncooked (even the pizza was raw most of the time) With cockroaches on the buffet and birds pooing all around! All in all we made the most of our time and maybe the holiday was not the bad But if you planning to come here make sure food/hygiene wise you are very, very, very open minded, Bring your own towel and don’t waste time exchanging money!!!! No one here use Cuban pesos!!!!

Our stay at Tainos was again wonderful. It is the staff that bring us back year after year (Julio, maylien. Beatrice, poolside staff and servers in bar, lobby and restaurant). All make sure we are giving a great time. Jania is a wonder. Thanks fir getting all 14 of us in together at the Japanese al a carte. I know some people complain about the food but no one goes hungry. Please next trip have White wine for us but the red was OK. The grounds and pool are kept very clean. Last but not least Jania,she rocks

Awesome experience. First time to Cuba and it will have a lasting impact with great memories. Friendly staff in all areas of the hotel, ready to greet and ask how you are doing. The other guests probably felt the same as the energy was reciprocated. Every day felt like I was welcomed, even to the point where my drink orders were remembered (with a smile 🙂) The beach is gorgeous and can be walked from east to west with comfort with a sight to see from birds to boats to beautiful people. A lot more nuances that have to be experienced to know and feel. I would recommend this hotel to any person or group who is coming to Cuba for the first time. Until next time, cheers to a great week.

My take on just returning from Tainos, varadero. The resort is lovely and most of the staff exceptional. Rain and wind no one's fault. The not so good. We were 3 women in a bungalow room. An extra bed was brought in. The sheets were for a smaller bed, the blanket for a twin. The first turn over resulted in an unmade bed, the sheets migrated to the middle. I did ask for an extra sheet to put 2 crossways, and was sent another sheet that worked great for 2 nights, before they were changed again. Not pleasant to have to sleep on a bare blood stained mattress. The shower stall was never cleaned. The drain was plugged. We took to showering in sandles. One shower would leave 1/2 of the shower stall with standing water, 2 showers it was nearly full, and 3 had it running into the sink area. Yes I did ask at the desk for someone to come and look at it, no one showed. I finally 'plunged ' it with my sandle clad foot and got it to drain better, but man how unsanitary. One cockroach in the bathroom, numerous small bugs around the food daily. Bathroom sink remained greasy, taps never wiped. So all in all, lovely gardens, lovely setting, it looks tidy, but far from clean. Food, they did the best they could. Havana tour, booked through the hotel, was a huge letdown. Not 5 mins into the drive, the tour guide started his spiel to book further trips with him. First stop the fortress which essentially contains a gift shop for rum and cigars. This was not what we wanted from a private tour. The tour guide did ask where we wanted to go, what we wanted to do, a prepared list was given to him, and it went largely ignored. He had his own agenda. The worst part, after talking to other guests who said they payed $150. canadian for 4 people, and got the same trip. Our cost $220 for 3 people. Catamaran tour to snorkle.. is great if you want to watch 25-30 year olds drink themselves silly. I'm sure my rant will cause lots of -, but its my view.

My family came to Iberostar Tainos for a week in February 2024. We were seeking sun, sand, and a break from our Canadian winter. We got it! The resort is small but I think that is a strength. The grounds were beautifully kept. We stayed in a ground level, garden-view bungalow and it was plenty big with a comfortable king size bed and balcony. There was a banana tree outside our balcony! The staff come in every day to make up the room and leave fresh water. Our daughters stayed in a second level bungalow room nearby. We had some issues with the room keys not working but they were quickly resolved at the front desk. The pool area was clean and inviting and we were always able to find chairs and umbrellas. There is fairly loud music playing throughout the day. Staff try to get you up and moving with various poolside activities. Pool/beach towels are provided and can be exchanged throughout the week, just bring them back when you check out. The beach is incredible! Soft, white sand that stretches out for ages. Very good swimming. The water is clear and warm, even in February (although not to the locals!) There are plenty of chairs and umbrellas. Paddleboards, kayaks and catamarans are available. Food is plentiful. It took us a couple of days to find what we liked to eat at the buffet but then we were good to go! The a la carte restaurants require reservations, so do that as soon as you arrive. We particularly liked the Japanese restaurant. The staff were very warm and friendly at Tainos! They go out of their way to smile, get to know you, and to make your stay pleasant. We had a good and memorable stay and hope to be back someday!
