    The hotel itself has alovely hotel lobby and the rooms are clean and very spacious. We stayed for 5 days and the food was pretty much the same everyday at the buffet, and only 3 restaurants were open during the whole stay! The buffet food consistented of meat and vegetarian food all next to each other and cross contamination of the food which is not ideal as a vegetarian! The meals at the restaurant were again meat heavy, although they did make me veggie dinners it just consisted of rice and vegetables for 4 nights! The buffet also had flies on the fruit!!! Half the options on the menu were not available! The bar by the pool had a lovely lady called Jenny who was the only member of staff who smiled - everyone else acted like their job was a chore! The toilets in the main lobby and near the pool were disgusting!!!! Overall, I think it is very expensive for what it is! I would not go back to this hotel or recommend anyone to go there!

    Incredible attention of all! Exquisite place for a vacation in the Caribbean. Always enjoy Mojito at Lobby bar. I will return to this hotel next month! I definitely change my life. Love Cuba for ever and ever .

    I actually had my wedding here and i brought almost 50 guests. But i felt like i didnt get amazing service here. i upgraded to the LEVEL which imo was very good service with very attentive workers. But the service on the main floors were not that good at all. It was as if they required a tip just to function. I should mention my group were a rowdy bunch and ive stayed at many other all-inclusive resorts with no problems what so ever, but it seemed like they werent acustomed to late night partying. The manager at the time Oscar was very easy to get along with and tried his best to make us happy but as soon as his shift was over the night staff just did there own thing and made sure we had to be quiet and not talk to loudly. Apparently they have a quiet time where your not allowed to make noise, i believe its 11pm. Maybe it was just for my group because when other groups came into the late night lounge to drink and party the staff didnt seem to have a problem with it. Food was average which i knew coming in since it was Cuba, there ala cart was pretty good id give it 4/5 stars. Beaches and pools were decent. Id stayed on the Level so my room was great but my other friends said there rooms were average, nothing great but nothing bad. If your coming here as a small group or 2 this is a good place to go if the price is right. I would advise not coming here if your wanting to party and take advantage of all-inclusive. FYI the date i traveled was 2 years ago.

    Humberto Reyes- Level at the beach provides the most attentive service offered at the beach. He is always on top of any thing you need to make your day at the beach relaxing and pleasurable. He is amazing! That's why are frequent guests. We will definitely be back.

    Very relaxing stays

    We stayed at this resort hotel during our last days in Cuba. the resort was very nice with lots of facilities such as kids club, restaurants, pools and most importantly access to the beach. we enjoy and use the facilities as much as possible. we swam, played at the beach, and our son played in the kids club often during our stays. our room was on the fourth floor with ocean view. we enjoyed watching the sunsets from our balcony. the room was clean but clearly old. the bed was not very comfortable as it made sounds if we change our sleeping position. the mattress was also not very comfortable as we felt more tired after sleep. the bathroom was clean for our standard. the best thing of the hotel was because we have the all inclusive. that meant we could use all facilities and join a lot of activities for free. Moreover breakfast, lunch and dinner was also for free as they were also included in our reservation. so we had breakfast, lunch, dinner buffet for at least 2 days full. They also have quite big variation of foods and also delicious so you won't get bored eating buffet all the time. if at some point you think you have too much buffet, you can also dine at their ala carte restaurants. they have more options for restaurants than we thought. the employees at the resort were also very warm and friendly. they helped us as much as they can and our son really enjoyed the attention they gave to him. all in all we have a very memorable stay at this resort thanks to its employees. This hotel of course will be our first option if we visit varadero again.
