We stayed here after 3 nights in Parque Central Havana. The hotel is nice but basic which is what we expected from Cuba, 5 star in Cuba is not 5 star elsewhere. The maids do a basic clean even with tipping no above and beyond!! The rooms need updating new furniture, furnishings and paint. The food is nice but standards... More

I stayed here for two weeks in July 2016 with my mum and 5 year old girl. Cuba as a country is wonderful, so much to do, so much to see and the people are an absolute delight. It was the only island I've been to where I felt my safety was not at risk, unlike others where you are... More

All of the locals regard Iberostar Varadero as the best in Varadero, this justifies the rating on tripadvisor. The staff, second to none, food, not 5 star uk but when you know the situation in Cuba, this is the best, good variety, bit bland but they don't do spicy!. The accommodation is excellent but don't expect the Hilton. The service... More

Just back home from a two week family stay. First time in Cuba and so not sure what to expect, however the hotel and complex were fabulous. The staff are always friendly and you don't have to tip them to get service with a smile, we tipped at the end of the holiday. There is something going on in the... More

We have been to Cuba every year visiting family. We always bring around 15 to the beach. This year we spent significantly more to return to Iberostar Varadero. We had been there in 2011 and thought it might be worth the extra money. It had really gone down. The animation was terrible. Very little to do and no excitement. Worst... More
