“Satisfied but expected more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

I think we got what we paid for.

We got this trip through Air Canada Vacations last minute deal.
$665CAD pp for ocean view from Montreal direct to Varadero
There are number of pro and cons and it really depends on what kind of vacation you are looking for.
Capacity for this resort is about 1000 but when we were there probably only 200 guests. When they are busy I am told maybe they can accommodate 450.
Having said that you cannot expect as much action or activities etc as at other busier or newer resorts

Pros....mainly because it was not a busy resort

beautiful beach, nice property
short bus ride to downtown Varadero
we could almost always get beach chairs in shade or sun
we could go sailing, kayaking, peddle boating or snorkeling right from the beach when we wanted...no waiting
never waited long to be served at the beach bar, lobby bar or pool bar
always could find a chair by the pool
staff was always friendly and personable
had a great ocean view room

Cons...
food was average at the one buffet and one a la carte
because of low occupancy not many other organized activities ....if that is what you look for...
entertainment at night was not that great....although one evening the show was excellent....again if that is what you look for...
only one elevator in service and it could not stop at the third floor we were on so we always had to use the stairs....which in our case was okay for exercise




So in short as long as you are aware of the pros and cons you can decide if this if good value for your vacation...

Room Tip: Look for Ocean view

I was in this hotel for a week. Week from hell ! .What you see on the hotel webs is not delivered. Quite dark ,- good to carry a flashlight. Only one pool, 2 bars, one buffet and one restaurant. I am not a princess expecting perfection but this resort is just BAD!!!!!!!!!!!
Please, don't go there .I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO THIS RESORT!!!!!!!

We went to Allegro Varadero on Nov. 22 for one week stay, 5th floor ocean view, we never make fuss, we are easy going couple... just to let you know that presently there is NO POWER in this hotel, cause of city construction, many hotels nearby have power. good luck to those who already booked specially on 5 th , elevator, bar etc...even dough power comes it is still dark, please carry flashlight with you specially going to the night show, our agent offered us to move into another hotel, the manager of Allegro insisted us to stay, we advise...incase you are unhappy ask your agent to move you into another resort, that's all folks
Have a great vacation

The hotel website says it has 4 pools, but they don't open half of the resort anymore. So there's one pool. And much things are just sitting empty. They are also only situated on one beach, not three. There is a small hut that sells drinks on one end of the beach, but the actual beach bar isn't even opened anymore. So you have to trek from one side to the other. The power was also off for a period of day, they said because of construction in Varadero City. It said the power only out 10am-2pm but was off until 5pm more than one of the days. No power anywhere in the resort. No water nothing. Couldn't flush toilets anywhere and was a mess.

I went to the allegro a couple of years ago with a group of friends. Got a super cheap deal, which made it ok. Rooms are ok at best, but were clean. Food was mediocre at best, even by Cuban standards. That said, beach was amazing. The best pork sandwiches in the world are made out by the pool (and that long line up every day was worth every second, we even tried to get the recipe for the marinade) and the Spanish coffee and the coffee bar in general were highlights of the resort. Wouldn't go back unless substantially cheaper than the others in the category. Been to way better 4 stars. But solid 3. A bad week in Cuba beats a good week at home in the winter, so temper your expectation for greatness and you will be just fine. Wouldn't be my first choice to go back but.......you won't die of starvation.

We went to this hotel first time about 6 years ago.
Hotel was in descent shape,nice beach bar,cigar bar. Food was plain,but eatable.
We return last year,march break.
As returning quests,we got large room with ocean view. Furniture was not the best,but we go on vacation because of the beach. Don't spend lots of time inside.
Beautifull beach,good tennis courts,good service,safe country and good weather.
That's why we go on vacations. And we found this in Allegro Varadero.
Not to mention delicious pork sandwiches they made us every day outside of the buffet restaurant.
So this is Cuba,don't ruin your vacation,just take the best out of everythink and enjoy your holiday.

Stayed December 2012, traveled with family

Although the resort must have been the jewel of the coast it has faded from it's past glory.2/3 of the facility is shut down, no swim up bar, no disco and the fountains are now fish ponds. It's a huge place and the friendly staff does not have the man power to maintain it. The rooms are very dated and the mattresses have no support . The buffet is very limited.
