This was my fifth holiday at the Iberostar Varadero since 2009. My partner and I enjoyed every minute spent at this great hotel complex.
The facilities, staff and food quality have improved over the years and the 3 a la carte theme restaurants were all excellent in their own individual way as usual. The fish choices and lobster in the “Mediterranean” were excellent and the “Japanese” food and entertainment was also top quality. Last but not least the “International” which is situated in the second buffet restaurant by the pool was very good with freshly cooked food to order, a better option than the main Buffet (no criticism here). The main Buffet restaurant is to be commended with an excellent range of food options at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The beach is probably one of the best in the world and is easily accessed from the pool area, sun beds and umbrellas/shade was plentiful.
The hotel gardens are a real pleasure and are always beautifully maintained. We stayed in block 13 (ground floor) overlooking the garden and fountains, blocks 13, 14 and 15 are the quietest blocks and still just a short stroll from the main hotel areas. The room was very well appointed, clean and well maintained and in fact couldn’t be faulted, the room maid kept the room spotless during our stay and she also entertained daily with her clever towel art.
I had complained about the "over the top" pool entertainment in my last review which so nearly stopped me going again, I'm glad it didn't as it seemed to have been "toned down" and was perfectly acceptable, the evening entertainment was very good too generally.So overall an excellent hotel, this is the only hotel I would stay at in Varadero, so --- see you soon --- I hope.
