I've gone to Cuba 4 times, this was my second time staying in Veradero. I was very happy with the hotel and the experience. The resort staff and check-in was very easy, and everyone was always willing to help answer any questions or offer friendly advice or just fun stories.

Stayed at the resort for 14 nights mid-October 2018. Whilst many reviews have stated this is not a 5* resort you have to consider the country in which you are holidaying. Appreciate the fact that you are getting the best of everything Cuba has to offer but understand that the

Dear Torrey, As a repeat guest, we would like to firstly thank you for consistently choosing our favoured all inclusive family hotel for your stay in beautiful Varadero and for notifying us of your concerns related to your most recent stay over the holiday period. Although we are delighted our beautiful grounds, stunning location and marvelous beaches were to your liking, we are disappointed to read that you found discrepancies in some of our wonderful facilities and services. We do have a great team of professional and competent staff who do their best to ensure that our hotel is well presented and that facilities and services are of a high standard. Furthermore, our highly trained team do their best to attend to the concerns and requests of our valued guests as adequately and as efficiently as possible. Our priority is to ensure guests are comfortable and can fully enjoy our facilities and services so we apologise if this was not the impression you received and are sorry for any inconvenience caused. In addition, we regret to read that we were unable to completely satisfy you and your family with our gastronomy. Our chefs work hard to prepare menus which are exciting, varied and fresh, using the best of the produce available in Cuba, so we are disappointed that we were unable to fulfil your expectations on this occasion. Again, we thank you for choosing to stay with us and for providing your invaluable feedback, rest assured, Torrey, all your comments will be relayed to the relevant departments for their further consideration. We do hope you will offer Iberostar another opportunity in the future to show you our genuine hospitality and outstanding service. Best regards, Quality Manager Iberostar Varadero

This resort isn’t quite a 5, but it is also better than a 4. We loved our stay here. Everything was clean and the food and entertainment was excellent. After hearing about the bland food in Cuba, we were surprised by the meals. Food was fresh and flavourful. They do have

Hello, it is very easy. We always ask Victor (from the animation team) to hire a driver and guide for the day. You can stay overnight if you like. Enjoy!

Do they play music at the main pool during the day?
Sometimes, they have aqua fit in the pool and will play music then. The pool area is actually rather quiet compared to many I’ve visited. They also have musicians at lunch playing by the pool restaurant but the sound doesn’t travel Hope that helps

Are there a lot of gluten free options at the resort?
Hello, there are no gluten free food at the resort. You will have to make arrangements with the Chef. We were there in August 2018, another guest (a Dad) had to ask several times for Gluten free food for his daughter, they did accommodate his request. It's a very nice hotel, people are very friendly! enjoy!

"stayed in different quarters of the resort, can't really complain about any area we stayed at."
"If you are lucky to get a room in block 18 ask for a top floor room, as you may see the beach."
"Building 17, level 2 or 3 I believe is the best location with direct view of sea"
"the water pressure can be poor in the shower in the afternoon when everybody comes back from the beach/pool."
"Garden view"
