This is a really good hotel, clean and tidy. The location was good with most facilities situated around the main pool and a short (1 min) walk to the beach with it’s own bar. Facilities were all included, safes included in the room and beach towel service all free. Buffet was good and varied and drinks flowed well. As someone...

We have just returned from a family trip and had an amazing time. We were in a group of 12 with ages ranging from 18 months to 62. The hotel location is fabulous with a beautiful beach and great pools. The hotel is spotless and all the staff work very, very hard. We only tipped at the end of our...

This was our second trip to Varadero and this place is really great. A few caveats: Lots of babies and toddlers and couples with young children. You won't find a table anywhere without kids sitting beside you. Really weird. Beach is Excellent. Staff is helpful whether you tip or not but I always tip anyhow. The pool bar and pool...

This resort has so many reviews and it was very helpful in planning our multi-generation visit. We were here in February 2011 with my senior parents and our kids ages 9 and 5. There was something to please everyone and the atmosphere and indulgence led to some of the best family bonding opportunities imaginable. How could a grandfather, father and...

We visited Iberostar Varadero last year May with our 2.5 year old daughter and visited again this year - May 2011! We have never revisited the same resort twice (considered it a waste of money) but we just had to come back to Ib Varadero. The staff remembered us and that made it extra special! They made our return perfect...

Have to say this is not one of my favorite hotels. I don't know if this was because we had just come from 3 days in Havana which was a very big buzz into boredom really. I would have to say that 30% of the staff were very friendly but the other 70% were not like I had experienced in...
