Very nice Hotel with relativ good food, which was better than I had before in other hotels in Varadero. I met very nice people and employers there. It was a pleasure to meet and to be hosted by Yoelis (Choco), Pedro and Abraham... Also not to forget Gretel at the beachbar! I would recommend the hotel for everybody, families, singles or couples, younger and elder tourists.

Recently stayed at this hotel. Had great yoga classes in the morning. Five star service with a very friendly staff. Very Covid friendly. The hotel rooms were clean and well maintained. Highly recommend this hotel.

Unfortunately we had to cancel our trip last minute due to Covid-19 and travel restrictions. Even though our cancellation time period was long past, the Azul Ocean Club Hotel refunded our money. I just wanted to write and let everyone know and say that at such a difficult time for us, this was much appreciated- especially in a time that is difficult financially for all of those depending on the tourist industry. We truly appreciated the gesture and look forward to the time when we can re-book and stay at your beautiful resort.

Amazing and quiet place. Clean room. Wonderful restaurant. Private beach. Advice: rent a car, consider renting one that's a 4×4. This is down a gravel road but within driving distance to major cities to visit. We wanted rest and relaxation, not a touristy crowded place. Get a place on the first floor if booking 1 room, those are the ones with a private outdoor shower so you can star gaze while rinsing the shampoo out of your hair! The restaurant is yummy but can get pricey. Think about buying groceries for your room. Keep your toothbrush in a travel container. Some tiny ants like toothpaste.

Stayed here for 3 nights in February 2020. Walked into our room and was overwhelmed by the Doterra infuser. We had to unplug, remove from room and open windows. Rooms are clean and nice. However, we repeatedly stubbed our toes on the pull out sofa. Room prices are reasonable however food and drinks are over priced and mediocre at best. We ordered food by pool and we were literally attacked by an aggressive iguana. He was notorious for this and staff thought it was funny. We warned family with young boys to not have food by pool. Overall my husband felt like it was a 90’s establishment trying to make a poor comeback. I didn’t mind the rooms(once oil diffuser was removed). Great beach, over worked staff, ok food -but over priced
