I stayed here one night and can't see why the call it a 5 star hotel. The food was 1/2 star, the only thing eatable at the buffet was the cheese and the cold cuts. Anything that was prepared by the... Read more chefs were over cooked and lacked flavor. The buffet set up is horrible,the trays are not placed in a flowing fashion. I found myself confused and looking for side dishes from one side of the restaurant to the other, I got a workout just looking for the food, and the left it all on my plate because it was horrible. The breakfast was terrible, the sausages,bacon and eggs were not eatable. The lounge area was very nice, but one lounge does not make a hotel. The rooms are spacious, buy good luck if you have hot water, if you like cold showers you are fine. The staff seems to be too busy stealing the food instead of tending to the customers. I don't not recommend this hotel because it's extremely over priced for what you get. Read less

Ok - here are my thoughts & experiences: - check in was easy & quick - the rooms were extremely spacious as were the balcony's - the bathroom was run down - the rooms were kept clean & cleaning... Read more staff did a great job - we were fortunate to book restaurants 5 of our 7 nights, but people we talked to were not so lucky and extremely frustrated - one guy that takes reservations; goes for two hour lunches, computer breaks down, reacts better to complimentary people - would not recommend the Mexican restaurant - Japanese restaurant was the best - was pissed off that one of the restaurants was only for couples at a family resort - serving staff were AWESOME everywhere we went especially at the buffet - drink selection is minimal - best drinks/cocktails were at the bar in the lobby - pool was massive & clean...GORGEOUS - resort was not overly busy which was great; didn't have to fight for a seat at the pool - appreciated big (purple) pool towels in the room ready to go - gorgeous beaches I would recommend this hotel.

I don't want you to think that I did not have a good holiday. I had a brilliant time. This was due to the lovely guests that we met and the wonderful Cuban staff at the resort. Firstly from the... Read more restaurant Eugenio, Alina and Eneida, always friendly and welcoming, but the best service in the resort came from the exceptional Animation staff, Yuliet and Abel, just brilliant and so much fun. The staff were five star. ***** So the hotel. If you are a frequent traveller and you are accustomed to five star hotels, this hotel will seem three star. The deco was tired, the hotel is fourteen years old, and it feels like improvements (especially in the rooms) are overdue. We were upgraded to an ocean view room, but this was blocked by palm trees. The balcony was broken and unsafe (especially for those travelling with children). The decor and furnishings were tired (Broken lamps, broken tiles, low quality furnishings). The beach and the pool needed someone to check for litter and discarded bottles and cutlery. The pool needed cleaning. little things that could have made a real difference. My main gripe in the room was the lack of water pressure in the morning and no hot water to shower (Three times I complained to reception with no response). So my biggest complaint in the hotel, the food was COLD. The hot plates for the food were not on for 3 days. I had diarrhoea for 11 days and in the end took to eating safe foods or food that I could see being cooked. This really needs addressing. So I have had a moan for the sake of the hotel management, but I really did have a great time and I wanted to leave with some positives. 1) Best bit of beach in Varadero, by far. 2) Exceptional staff, especially the animation team (Yuliet and Abel). 3) The food in Japanese restaurant was great. Book this early. 4) Huge pools, plenty of space to be private. 5) Huge lobby with well stocked bar, great place to relax. 6) Close to Varadero, which is good for a day out on a dull day. Market at 1st and 15th street good for bargains. Read less
