This was our 4th trip to Cuba and 2nd stay at this hotel. Our first stay here was amazing and the only reason we we stayed at the Riu on other occasions was because the Riu had a swim-up bar. The renovations that are taking place right now could have been better planned. Both bathrooms near to the pool and... More

Major Tip. There are (at least 4) other Iberostar Resorts in Varadero. If you are looking onTrip Advisor or Google, and you type in 'Iberostar Varadero' you won't get this resort. We asked to be moved from this as (presumably the Spanish HQ) had decided to have major building works on two of the blocks. As a result there was... More

The food was very good and tastfull. both as buffet as well in the a la carte restaurants. Pitty was the rebuilding of the lake and some buildings causing some noise. Also pitty were the public toiltes that... More

The hotel has a beautiful lobby and the outside bars and restaurants are very well preserved. This unfortunately doesn't apply to the rooms of the hotel. We had a romantico room which is bigger and better that the other one. The room is big with both shower and a tub, a small walk in closet and a sofa. The pillows... More

We just got back from the hot and humid Varadero! We knew going in August that it would be hot, but wow! The resort was beautiful and well maintained. The grounds were raked, grass cut, and always tidy. The lagoon was empty and they were working on fixing up a couple of the washrooms, but I'm guessing, since it's off... More

Good sized resort - not too big so all is close by. Best points are the entertainment and friendly staff, and the beach, of course! The resort is undergoing renovation, as a section is closed off and some washrooms are being worked on - and the public washroom areas certainly need it. I am not a nit-picky guest, as I... More
