We stayed at the Iberostar Varadero from June 3 - 10, 2007 and had a most excellent time! We had our two children with us, ages 4 and 6 and they had an amazing vacation... they are still talking about the mini club and the mini disco. They made friends with a lot of the kids their ages and spent an inordinate amount of time in the kid's pool. The mini club was great as the activities kept the children out of the sun for a couple of hours and of course they had a ball.
We all enjoyed the food. There was plenty of it and there was enough variety that no one ever complained there was nothing to eat. We all enjoyed the pizzas at supper in the main dining room and the cook was happy to make a pizza to suit the children's tastes (if they asked)! The fruit was excellent, the desserts were lovely and the main dishes were always delicious.
We had a junior suite, ocean view and it was perfect. There was a roll-away bed provided but we didn't need it - the kids slept in the second double bed. The bathroom was spacious and clean. The patio wasn't used much but that's because we were rarely inside. The room was kept very clean and the kids got a kick out of the towel art every day.
The people working at this resort are outstanding. The Star Friends, as a lot of people have mentioned, were a lot of fun, very respectful and were very energetic. They also never missed an opportunity to make a big deal over the children. The S/F made the shows very entertaining every night and we made it a point to attend every night. The acrobatic show was outstanding (professionals). There was one night the children were included in the show and they were charmed!
All in all it was an excellent vacation - we are planning next year's vacation right now and will be returning to the I/V.
