My husband and I were at this resort for 5 nights in late May. We were only able to book the Butler Service. I don't think that the extra money was worth it. Our room was lovely. Our butlers were... Read more nice. There is a private pool for the exclusive use of guests with butler service. There are restaurants also available only for butler service guests. The consierge bar is open all evening, it's a great place to chat and meet other guests. The pool was extremely quite. No music or games, unlike the main pool at the resort. I would suggest this side of the resort is you are wanting a quite week away. If you are looking for more of a party atmosphere book on the regular side. No wifi in the room, but you can get if for free along with your butler service package. Our vacation was during a slow period for the Cuban resorts, so overall everything was very quite. We have not been to Cuba for about 3 years, and the airport departure lounge has been redone. Very nice as well. Overall a nice 5 nights away, but think we need to look at another Cuban city. We have always gone to Varadero (6 times). We stayed a this resort back in 2001. These butler suites, restaurants, pool and services are relatively new. The remainder of the resort has not changed. In fact, its looks like it needs some updating. Read less

Went to this resort for a relaxing week away and to be pampered. I paid $$$$ for one week all inclusive service with Butler package. These were not offered. Carrying bag for beach towels... Read more (courtesy) Packing and unpacking of luggage - Never even offered in either of my two rooms. Daily turndown service - Not once during my stay. 1 Green fee included at the Varadero Golf Course per person per stay (not even mentioned) Custom Premium bar, according to client preferences (Filled this out online and nothing was ready / Done) I did get a bottle of vodka • Pillow menu - ordered special pillows never came. Bed linen menu - not available No reservations for the beds by the pool and this was a major selling feature for me. Furnished Balcony or Terrace - could get to because my door was screwed shut had to walk around to access it. Private climate control - sounded like a jack hammer behind my bed. their suggestion was to put the room at 23 or higher. Breakfast, lunch and dinner a la carte - Always out of Chicken on two times i went. Out of Bacon when i had breakfast asked for ham and didn’t even get that. They do not serve breakfast together when dining for two. Exclusive Swimming pool - so DIRTY it has to be half emptied and refilled. couldn’t use it for half portion of the day. Internet Lounge/ area (Free) - ALWAYS out of cards pain to keep going every hour for another card. Internet Access ($) - was not available and i asked because i wanted constant internet. Read less

This hotel was the first place my husband and I stayed together at as a couple, in May 2011. We have since been on many more vacations and we both feel this was one of the best. The service was good... Read more and the bar staff were phenomenal very funny and wonderful to be around. We had an all inclusive package and we had a room near the ocean but not ocean view. I definitely recommend getting ocean front and ocean view, because our room was facing the others when we sat on our back balcony we didn't have any privacy, still great though. Since it rained the last night we were there, we stayed in our room. Tropical rain is lovely and we wanted to observe it, but as I said our balcony was facing other guests balconies so we felt we had to keep the drapes closed. The rooms could use a little updating but perhaps they have been since we visited. All in all it was a wonderful trip, pleasant staff, and beautiful weather. We plan to visit again this November!
