Summer Vacation!!

To be completely frank, this was one, if not the best, hotel me and my family have ever been to in Cuba. The attention is amazing and the food is delicious as well. Everything was absolutely clean and the staff are not only very attentive but friendly as well!! I have no complains, great hotel and service overall. I 100% recommend that you come here for your family vacation!

We spent a couple of days at this great hotel. The staff was very attentive and professional, always attentive to our requests. The rooms were very spacious and super clean. I loved our time there and would definitely come back and recommend it to all my friends!

Disappointed

martamC289JH on Jun 20, 2022

Needed holiday; arrival was by sunwing 9:30 pm. Had to rush to get something to eat , at main buffet . Not much left to be honest . Now I am just a tourist who normally read this trip advisor to get a feeling for the hotel and food . The room in 17 block top floor 1752 was amazing, really was . Ocean view . Now the food; remember if you read this and decide to go to this resort after I gave you a honest review its up to you. I understand covid times and 5 star hotel etc . But man. this resort should be 3 star . Everyday breakfast I got two eggs and toast . There is really nothing else to eat that is not already been tasted by flys. Food quality is very poor , seems if it's not eaten during breakfast it goes back to lunch and same to supper . They have a small Cafe by maim entrance for a decent coffee and a small sandwich, if any of the sandwiches are left they appear on the breakfast buffet . The chefs serving trying their best to give you the smallest amount of food they can possibly give you . Ask for more , they look like- I can't , really . Croissants probably 3 days old. , wife tried one , after that she didn't bother . No bacon whatsoever, very little sea food, few shrimps you must wait for your turn to ask. But on weekends the local Cubans who swarm to this resort take over , they don't care you're a tourist , don't get it. Their way for what ever ice cream or meat, Or shrimps they just walk to front of the line speak Cuban to the chef and he gives what they ask for , wait again . Sorry but only happened 1 time I walked out , my background is in restaurant bars , so when we go away I get lots of dollar bills or change a lot so we can tip every meal or drink . That's just the way we are , my wife after seeing what's going on the tourists being totally ignored for the locals who now take priority was enough for her to stop tipping . So sad , if they put effort into looking after the people who give you a decent standard of living and are there for a vacation people would tip more . I also seen cockroaches by the bread table . I didn't tell the wife , she wouldn't eat if I did . The Mediterranean restaurant was very good we ate there 2 times , and tipped very well. If you have kids who like French fries , sorry they don't have any , even trying to bribe chefs please , kid won't eat anything else , greasy thin match sticks . I gave him 15 bucks for trying . Honestly.food is what brings this resort down to 3 star , beach was amazing , this is a real evaluation of our stay there , I have been to Cuba 5 times , sadly I don't think I would return, . A lot of the reviews I have read are not real, up to you but remember if you do go I warned you, bring some food from home. Yes its Cuba, but it supposed to be their best resort and its not worth it in my opinion.

Beach Vacations With the Family

X5036YCalejandral on Jun 17, 2022

This was my first time in Iberostar Selection Varadero and I have no complains, the service, the food, the animation service everything was wonderful. People were very nice and friendly and always give you the best service. It had amazing views of the ocean and amazing bars and food. Also a very familiar place for the kids they have shows for them and animation thing during the day to keep them entertain and having a good time. I will definitely be coming back every time I come to Varadero.
