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
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...
