Booked a package holiday through Virgin Holidays and all went extremely well. We were unlucky to catch the final 2 days of mourning after Castro's passing so there was literally no entertainment anywhere. Once over, everyone was warm, welcoming and the entertainers themselves are great. This hotel's beach is also one of the better ones without any rocks. The staff...

I have been in many resorts in Varadero. This one is the best. You will find the best service, food and overall great resort. i strongly suggest you go eat at the Mediterranean restaurant and ask to be served by their best waiter there. Her name is Daisy Acosta. You will have the best service and detailed attention.

We had a junior suite - well worth the extra. Our concierge Idelsis Acosta was brilliant. She made sure everything was just right for our Golden Wedding celebration. Everywhere was exceptionally clean, staff excellent. Food in Al a carte restaurants great.

We arrived a bit early and our room wasnt ready yet. We went to the pool for a while until it was. Upon arrival into our room, there was a welcome bag of sand toys for the little guy and a bottle of rum for us. The room was very big and had a private balcony. The bathroom was also...

We just arrived home after 2 fantastic weeks at the Iberostar Varadero and we are already planning our next trip back. The beaches are breathtaking and the people are amazing. I would rate the resort itself a easy 9/10. The food was good and there was plenty of it. All staff throughout the resort were very friendly and accommodating, a...

Stayed at the Iberostar Varadero for 10 nights after our 4 night trip to Havana. Wasn't too sure what to expect given that alot of reviews rate Cuban 5 star standards as being lower than other destinations, plus the food issues. We were however pleasantly surprised! First off, the food......Three speciality restuarants and a buffet restaurant to choose from. We...

We visited here middle of November, the weather was perfect! It only rained for one evening when we visited Havana. The Iberostar Varadero hotel was everything we'd wished for and more. Clean, comfortable, food amazing! (Don't listen to all those people who say that it isn't!) and no bad stomachs. There were 8 of us in our party by the...

Just come back from a 2 week stay. Our first time in Cuba and had a good time even though it was slightly effected by Castro's death. Hotel was okay but I guess our travel rep was correct when he said do not expect European 5 star standards. ROOM - 1145 - Always kept clean. Slight noise as we were...

We stayed in a junior suite in block 17 (room 1741) from 21st Nov to 1st Dec. I believe in being brief so I'll simply say that all the staff and Iberostar do everything to the highest possible standard that is possible for them at this location. Of course you could pay a great deal more and you'd expect to...
