Cuba Resort Reviews
Travelers loved …

  • Great beach: “thin but beautiful”
  • How friendly the staff were
  • Great all inclusive family beach resort
  • Great children’s activities
  • Clean, large rooms
  • Beautiful grounds
  • Some of the best food found in Cuba (see Cuba Travel Information for info on the quality of Cuba food)
  • Fridges were stocked with beer, soft drinks, and water
  • Lots of beach chairs available all day
  • A variety of pool side activities
  • Ocean shallow for a long ways in front of the resort

Some travelers disliked …

  • The evening entertainment was very similar each night
  • Room service food quality
  • Television reception wasn’t great
  • In bad weather the beach can have quite a rip tide

Tips for staying at the Iberostar Varadero:

  • Book the Japanese restaurant at the beginning of your stay to try it so you can make reservations again.  It was voted the best restaurant in the resort.
  • Book reservations at any of the restaurants you want to try (other than buffet) when you get to the resort
  • Do the day trip into Havana (the capital of Cuba) to see the “real” Cuba
  • The garden view rooms overlook a nice gazebo and pond so if you’re trying to save money this may be a good option
  • Pack some tissue in your beach bag as the bathroom at the beach sometimes ran out of toilet paper
  • Bring mosquito repellent (especially for the evenings)
  • Money exchange at the airport got a better rate than at the hotel
  • Take a trip into Varadero if you get bored in the resort.  You can catch the open top bus into Varadero for 5 CUC return or the open train for 4 CUC return on the main road in front of the resort.  A taxi is about 30 CUC return.
  • Don’t go to the Mediterranean restaurant if you don’t eat fish or seafood as they don't have many alternative dishes.
