Misleading resort

Paige M on Feb 17, 2024

The beaches were the best part about this trip. Bring your own towels as they make you pay $30USD a towel and people can easily take them on the beach and you will be left to pay for it. They state that they have many things to offer here however they do not and they are very misleading The drinks were terrible and watered down. The food is mediocre for Cuba. We were always able to find something to eat. Bring your own condiments as they do not have any This hotel advertises free wifi. . They do not. The wifi does not work. They told us it was not working and when asked to be compensated for the phone plan the assistant manager Xavier said no there is nothing he can do about it. Our room was spacious and clean however we quickly learnt that the hotel staff stole from us. When brought to the attention of the assistant manager Xavier he told us there is nothing he can do for us. He was rude and dismissive. They told us to call the Cuba police and file a police report. If you are looking for modern this is not the report for you . This resort is run down and needs some updating. We will not be returning to this resort

Had a good week at Iberostar Selection

SuzanneBob (Canada) on Feb 16, 2024

We enjoyed our time at this resort. Having been to a number of 5 star hotels in Cuba, we know what to expect. We have a favourite hotel in Varadero but because of the reviews we thought we’d try the Iberostar this time. Although the hotel is somewhat worn (as are most Cuban hotels…there are few new one) our housekeeper did an excellent job everyday of keeping our room clean. The room was large and everything worked including lots of hot water. Most of the staff are attentive, the housekeepers and garden staff stand out as they greet everyone with an ‘Hola’ and smiles every time they see you. Some bar staff are friendlier than others. Particular mention of Elie in Lobby Bar. Fabulous! Drinks were ok. No menus so a little bit irritating. Shortage of white wine for a few days but they had what we wanted other than that. Food was good by Cuban standards. Same every day but that’s my experience in other 5 star hotels. Salad fixings were always available, cold cuts , cheese and a variety of cold options were plentiful. Fish, chicken (don’t know about beef) were cooked on demand and were good. Lots of other assorted vegetables while we were there. Great bread. The a la cartes were ok. Small disappointments: -entertainment. The bands, piano player in lobby bar were excellent but you never knew who was going to show up where. Would be nice to know that the opera singer was going to be at the buffet at a certain time. We heard that she was there but we learned after the fact. Please post a schedule so the guests can appreciate the talent you bring in - ice cream. We’ve eaten a lot of Cuban ice cream which is delicious but this did not compare. Perhaps this relates to shortages of ingredients. Also ice cream only available during meal times…there isn’t an ice cream parlour which is rather odd for a family resort -towels. If you lose a towel you have to pay $30US. One of ours went missing (stolen) from our lounger around the pool. The Asst Manager said we were “negligent” so we had to pay. Very disappointing. Although we had a good week, we probably would return to our still favourite hotel on our next trip to Varadero.
