Let me start off by saying I have never had a bad experience at any other resort we have been to, and we have been everywhere. As a couple getting married, we had been to Varadero once before and had fallen completely in love with Cuba. The people were some of the most

This resort is the best in Cuba my husband and I have stayed so far. We had low expectations about the food based on previous experience but we were pleasantly surprised. The buffet in particular was very good. Especially the seafood pasta. The fish was cooked to perfection!

I was impressed from the first day to the last. We paid a lot for the experience as it was March Break, but would definitely go back. The food was very good. I had the tastiest pork chops made right on the spot, and a freshly made pasta dish to die for. Breakfast was not my

What beach is located at iberostar enchenachos?
Iberostar Ensenachos is on its own Cayo ( Island ) there is only this one hotel but two stunning beaches, Megano beach located closest to the main hotel and nearest to the Spa section and Park Suites section and Ensenachos beach located closest to the Grand Village section but also accessible to all guests if IE. there are no locals on this Cayo except the staff working at the hotel. Both beaches are safe and usually very calm. The other hotels of Cayo Santa Maria are not far away but they have their own beaches, they cannot access Megano beach or Ensenachos beach.

The restaurant at the park ( family section ) is the same menu at lunch as the spa section, the last time I looked. The only difference is that there will be children at lunch at the park section. The Spa section is adults only that have booked that section. You can use both beaches, there is a lunch restaurant on Megano beach now that was not there during Hideaway days and there is a small snack bar at the end of Ensenachos beach that serves hamburgers and hot dogs that wasn’t there in the Hideaway days. You just can’t go and use the facilities in the spa section except the actual spa ) you can still walk the grounds ) and you can’t use the facilities at the Grand Village unless you wish to pay to go to dinner at El Colonial by reservation. You will still love it ( we do ) as much as the Hideaway days but it is a different vibe now. Children in the lobby might be a surprise to you if you remember the quietness it used to be. If you book the spa section you can use both spa and park suites section. If you book the Grand Village you can use the entire resort. We have been many times during Hideaway years and also Iberostar years so if you have any other questions please feel free to message me.

I have seen Beefeater, Chivas Regal Malibu, J&B,Jamison,Absolute, Mastreo, Ballantin's to name a few. I have ever seen Crown, might want to pick up at Duty free if that's what you like. Loads of Cuban stuff, top shelf rums etc. There is a great selection.

"Ask to be upgrated to a bungalow if staying in the spa section!"
"Spa section has no kids so it's great"
"villas at Grand Village are all ground level"
"Pick the second floor instead of the ground floor."
"Select a room on the second floor or in the Spa section - no kids in spa section."
