    I went with my whole family and it was amazing. The people are unmatched! My daughter loved the kids club. She bugged me everyday to play. The deck is so amazing to meet people, relax or hit up some entertainment. Cant wait to have my wedding there next year!

    my family and friends went to this resjort in February 2020. it was really a great experience. the majority of the staff were nice, and some went over the top to be excellent (like the pool bar, the kids club and the coffee shop). the resort isn't perfect, there is some wear but I didn't go there to hang out in the hallways or in my bathroom. overall it was nice. in terms of beach, it was very nice. we were with kids so we spent WAY more time at the pools. the kids club was excellent for my daughter who turned six while we were there. they had different activities and themes each day and made sure to come say hello at breakfast to get her pumped up for going. we were able to walk to a little strip mall down the beach which was nice. houskeeping was good, they restocked what we needed when they had it. hey left nice towel designs on the beds and it was done up daily. the food was decent. again, cuba is not known for food. we brought condiments and peanut butter to keep the kids happy. I like fish and seafood so I was pretty happy with it, my husband who does not like fish or seafood was not as pleased but he found something at every meal. the snack bar food was hit and miss. they often ran out of what was on the menu but did manage to find substitutes (example: no more chicken fingers but offered chicken wings). the entertainment was fun. there were lots of activities. had a blast at the beach party and many talented people are in the shows. I want to thank the staff for the great vacation. I can't remember all your names but hopefully you know who you are from us giving you gifts when we left (I only remember Mylene from the pool bar). I didn't take photos of all the awesome things. the only staff photo I have is of my daughter's birthday party with the kids club (which was fantastic!). I recommend this resort if you can overlook the flaws. the staff were kind and some fantastic, the location was great, the pools and beach were clean and I didn't get sick, so what more can I ask for. I believe you can make the best of your vacation, and we did with this resort and we would go back!

    Great experience with friends!

    We organized a great gathering of Canadian and Italian friends to spend a few nice days in Varadero, Cuba. It is a relatively new hotel and I loved its facilities, its beach is paradisiacal like all the beautiful beaches of Varadero. It has several restaurants with a limited gastronomic offer, there are missing some food in Cuba, but that does not prevent you from enjoying the beautiful beaches and spending beautiful moments. The hotel staff is always very friendly and always well prepared to assist the guest in everything you need. Always with a lot of humor and sympathy!. I stayed in a suite with a beautiful sea view, the suites are quite spacious and very modern, I really enjoyed my room. The bathroom had a very large jacuzzi that easily had two people. It is an ideal hotel to relax and unwind. It is a very nice hotel. There are always guests from many countries. Ideal for making new friends It is a hotel that I recommend and will always come back!

    The worst experience in my life. Did not have the room I booked. Said they would then did not. Food in restaurants was pretty bad along the service. Heard nothing but complaints from most of the guests facing the same issues. Left and only spent 3 nights out of the 10 days. Front desks/room service/laundry service was a joke. Get an air B&B or a Boutique Hotel. Would never recommend the hotel or Iberostar chain! Found plenty of great little restaurants with great food and service. I would give the place a 1 star for the experience I had.

    Clearest turquoise ocean right in front of the hotel. Second stay in 2 years. Delicious fresh bass fish several days, tender pork, lots of fresh fruit and veggies, champagne. Wonderful reception, cleaning, support, and hospitality "Animaciòn" staff. Talented multi-lingual animators of activites (Belery, Duniel, Osvaldo, Elio, Teran, Yandy, Randy, Yanetssy, Michel, Luis, Adisbell + music guys José and Roly) such as: Stretching, Ocean aquagym, Salsa dancing ("Madre Tierra" and African dances), Spanish lessons, games. Nice crowd of Canadians, Italians, Argentinians, Russians, etc. Nice place for couples and for families as well. Glitches get worked out quickly by customer relations and front desk staff. My husband adds, "Front desk staff are effective and cheerful at all times, as is client service." Clean, lively, romantic, fun. We loved it.
