After a decade of visiting Varadero and staying at several hotels, I can honestly say Iberostar Selection is exceptional. The reason why it stands out is its staff. Just to name a few, it's Iris, Yaritza and Yailyn at the reception and of course Idelsis & Fidel at relations. Their professionalism, attentiveness and friendliness is what separates this hotel from the rest. The hotel itself is beachside, with a decent pool available. There are three separate restaurants, apart from the main dining one, though the Asian one is being renewed so I can't say how it is. I'd especially recommend to visit the Mediterranean one, it's seafood focused and food quality stands out there, though the rest is good as well. My room is very spacious (it is a junior suite), equipment is okay. The internet, which is usually charged separately by hour in Cuban hotels, was included in the price which is part of the reason for the good review. Last but not least, Covid measures are taken seriously, which I appreciate and the rooms are kept immaculately clean by the cleaning staff daily.

My husband and I just got back from this wonderful resort. Everything about this trip was absolutely perfect. This was my 9th time in Cuba and must say that this resort exceeded all expectations for Food, Room , Beach and lastly, Service. I want to specifically thank Yohani Torres, Ilan, Yoani Moran, Maragarita and Yarleins . You all made this trip better and it’s because of your hard work that the resort is the way it is. I would absolutely recommend to everyone!

This is a very special resort. The villa design is very appealing. The beach, pool, theatre and facilities are all world class. Special thanks to: - JD for teaching us salsa dance - the dancers for fantastic evening shows - the gardeners for getting us coconuts very day - the waiting staff at the buffet - Milayda for taking care of our room - the security and onsite doctor for helping my wife when she fell and bumped her head Will come again soon.
