Lovely resort, majority of staff great, they really care about you there but unfortunately infested with BED BUGS. The nights were a horror - you get bitten/eaten by the bugs. Moving a room did not help us as the other place was infested as well. The hotel denies bed bugs and their apparently specialised staff never find anything on inspection.... More

We never done AI before and I don't think we will do it again. We upgraded to a suite as it was closer to beach. A very musty smell in room and complained at reception when going for dinner that if it was annoying during the night we would require a new room , they were very understanding . The... More

After seeing reviews posted about this hotel had us a little concerned, but our concerns were soon quashed. On arrival our check in and room allocation took no time at all, in fact we were on the move to our room in approx. 10 mins. Our room was spacious, clean with plenty of amenities. We were in block 10 which... More

Lots of activities are organised throughout the day if you want to do a little bit moe than lie in the sun. The evening shows were great and kept us entertained. Plenty of choice when it comes to food... More

Buffet had enough choicesfor my little picky eater, Japenese restaurant was great entertainement as well as tasty for a Cuban version. Pool was amasing! Beach incredible! The animation was good, but we mostly enjoyed the bands at the lobby... More

We had booked this hotel for seven nights all inclusive, after spending five nights in Havana. So we were looking forward to a week relaxing. We arrived after a long coach trip from Havana in the afternoon sun so when we saw the hotel in Varadero it was a welcome sight. The receptionist was friendly and gave us a welcome... More

Arrived at this hotel by accident after the one we had booked overbooked our rooms. Had two nights at this lovely hotel and enjoyed every minute. Reception staff were very helpful in getting us organised with a room and made us feel welcome and at home right away. The beach area is lovely and very quite. Spa pool is especially... More

We visited in August with Thomas Cook flying from Manchester on one of their A330`s. It was on time & food was good. Transfer to hotel ok, checking in was no problem either, bags brought to room promptly. We had requested a block and floor level we liked and it was waiting for us,  and before we had changed to...
