El Patrarca Varadero Hôtel service and other

ritapI6302RC (Montreal, Canada) on Jun 28, 2022

Excellent service, friendly people, rooms cleaned daily, towels every 2nd day. Beach clean, warm and calm sea. Beach Security and Life guard visible at all times. Beach chairs and towel attendants helpful in finding and cleaning chairs. Breakfast and lunch ... Very good despite the Caribbean food shortages reported by Canadian news. Could use some improvement with the A la carte (have more than one restaurant available per night) and different dinner menus whenever possible ; reservation desk for A LA CARTE should allow for group seatings of 8 and over; we come as a group and should not be split up because of max seating rule of 6.

The resort itself was beautiful, food was ok but you wouldn’t starve . Would of been nice if there was more of a selection .The entertainers were fabulous such as Yenier / aka chocolate and Dayron which we called D they were amazing people . The maids we found were over worked and understaffed . Nightly Performance would of been nice if it’s was more . Dancers were also fabulous. The flys in the night lobby was ridiculous otherwise we will be back in March .. The bartender Kiki on the swim up bar was amazing .. Laura from Newfoundland Canada

Horrible resort

tracyq649 on Jun 25, 2022

This is the first holiday we’ve had since Covid. We were so looking forward to this holiday. I have never been so disappointed in a resort in all my life. This was shown as a 4 1/2 star. I would be stretching it by giving this resort a 2 star. I have been to many resorts. This is the dirtiest place I have ever been. The rooms had not been swept the whole time we were there 7 days. We had to ask for clean glasses and towels and our sheets did not get changed once. The staff were just down right ignorant. The pool was slimy and cloudy the whole time. There were broken glasses and cigarette butts all over the pool area the bathrooms in the pool area were no better than an outhouse. Also please check the weather before you go if there has been a lot of rain stay away from the beach. I have been on medication since I returned home from the sand fleas the bites are overpowering. The only positive thing I can say about this resort is the ground’s people they are all very nice. So if I had my time back I would have saved my money and went somewhere else. So my advise would be save yours and book elsewhere.

Though we had a wonderful holiday . I definitely would not say this is 5 star resort as indicated. The reception staff do not provide any information at check in and there is nothing in the the room to advise of facilities, so your first couple of days are like a mystery tour finding your way around. One night we were having drinks in the lobby and watched a couple check in then wandering around lost, so we directed them to the buggies to take them to rooms, as they had not been told where to go. Though always able to find something to eat the choice is quite limited and tasteless. The grounds are stunning and well kept . Bed large and comfortable but the decor in the rooms is very tired and distressed and in dire need of updating. Despite this it is kept very clean and the lady cleaning our room 6612 was lovely and friendly. Whilst I don’t object to tipping for good service. I felt tipping was expected for everything. The beach is beautiful and we loved been in the sea. A lovely guy found us nice comfy beds every day.
