We enjoyed our stay here, all the staff were very friendly and helpful. Rom large and clean very quiet too, sea/pool view. We did not find it a long wait for the lifts nor did we found them to be slow. Meals were plentiful and a wide variety of choices. Best place to have a cocktail is in the beach bar. avoid the Mexican specialist restaurant like the plague I got a stomach bug and the food is tasteless. We would certainly return here if we should come back to Varadero.

It is a little village in the outskirts of Havana City with a special touch.
Famous for the landmarks left By Ernest Hemingway and where he kept his yacht, the one he used to go fishing as well as chasing Nazi submarines during Second World War. In this place lived Gregorio, the boat’s captain.
There you can visit “La Terraza” where the famous writer used to go for his meals and drinks. Often, when I take tourists from Varadero to Havana interested on him I give them a little tour around the place that people enjoy a lot. The photo by the table where Hemingway used to sit is a must.
Visiting the monument that local fishermen made in 1962, just one year after Ernest death is touching.
It was also here where the British made their landing in order to take over Havana in 1762.
Nowadays many famous Cuban artists like painter Nelson Dominguez and photographer Raul Corrales live in this place.
It is worth to use one hour on your ride from Varadero to Havana in order to have the experience.

The Beach in Varadeo is simply Carzy! It's very beautiful and the water is so clean that you can see the fish!

Beautiful white sand. You can go out far enough and still be waist deep. Many palapas for everyone which means shade for whoever needs it.
