Been to Cuatro Palmas in 2019 and loved it. Varadero, probably 9 times. Just booked the Cuatro again, for Nov 7th 2020. Cross my fingers, full planes will be heading to Varadero. Follow the rules and enjoy sunshine and Cuban culture. Great location, clean resort with super friendly staff.

Room tip: Be sure to pay the small upgrade fee, to get a room in the main part. Eco rooms are across the road, but you get privileges at Cautro.

This place is a gem!!! Nice little resort close to the downtown. Lots of markets close by, as well as the Calle 62 and Beatles Bar. The resort is fairly well kept, the rooms are a bit dated, but nicer than the other rooms that I have stayed in at other resorts. The staff are great, friendly and helpful. The staff make you feel like you are family, it is like going to the cottage with family more than staying at a resort. The pool and beach are lovely, food is good and the A la Cart restaurants are great!!!!

I highly recommend this resort

Room tip: Standard rooms are nice, for the full experience get an Ocean view.

Dear guest,

On behalf of Starfish Cuatro Palmas staff, we would like to thank you for providing part of your time to share a review of your stay with us. We are glad to know you liked our little but fairly well-kept resort, close to the downtown, with its rooms nicer than the other rooms that you have stayed in at other resorts. It is our pleasure to know you enjoyed the lovely pool and beach, the good food, and the great A la Carte restaurants. Moreover, we are more than happy to know our staff was great, friendly, helpful, making you feel like you are family, like going to the cottage with family more than staying at a resort.
However, we regret to know we could not reach your expectations because your room was a bit dated, but we already made some renovations. As we are continually improving, we will take your insight with a profound sense of responsibility to improve that, and address it properly.

We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you back.

Thank you for choosing us.

Best regards,

General Manager

We asked for a sea view but ended up with the best of both, our room over looked the pool and the sea. Lovely room, very spacious. The cleaners were excellent. Food was good and staff friendly. All inclusive worked well. The person who ran the cocktail bar was particularly helpful and friendly. Entertainment was good. Overall a lovely stay and would recommend.

Room tip: check you are on the main site - there are rooms literally down the road and I wouldn't want to stay there.

First time to Cuba. The Starfish Cuatro Palmas exceeded our expectations. The location is great. The food was the best that I have had at a resort. The beach was top notch. All of the staff were extremely friendly. I would highly recommend this resort. When I return to Cuba it will definitely br here

Cuatro Palmas is the jewel of Varadero.
We have had 15 visits in 11 years.
We've watched it transform from a diamond in the rough to the jewel of Varadero,with many upgrades and renovations that have been done.
It is located in the heart of the Varadero strip. You are surrounded by all the fine restaurants, night clubs and many souvenir markets, which are all in walking distance.
The rooms are exceptionally clean with comfortable beds, hot water, new ACs and new fridges. Based on it's unique layout you can be anywhere on the resort from your room in under two minutes. Whether its the front lobby or the beautiful pristine beach. They have recently installed many new palapas (beach umbrella's) on the beach as well, so there is more than enough for all the guests.

The entire staff are warm and friendly, from the front desk, to the housekeepers, buffet staff, A La carte staff, bartenders, groundskeepers, pool staff, public relations and the Resort Manager. As well the bell hop, Alberto, my Cuban brother.

We have traveled all through the caribbean but always return to Cuatro Palmas at least once a year and some times twice, seeing we are so well treated by who we consider our second familia as well our second home.
We are hoping we can get back there this year to not only enjoy this wonderful resort but to visit with our Cuban Familia.
If you plan to visit Varadero, this resort is a "must go to" place. I guarantee you'll return!

Room tip: All rooms are good .
