Read more and have the Luxury package which includes private transfer to the hotel and a butler which we did not abuse like many people. The spa was nice. We are golfers and it is included (extra charge for the cart) Beautiful golf course 18th hole is amazing. If you have a chance book a meal at the Xanadu beside the golf course. Read less

We were told in advance that this place was amazing, but the food, wasn't. So we knew what to expect in terms of food. Apparently food is terrible at every resort in Cuba. Over-cooked fish and... Read more seafood, under-cooked veggies. It all looked very appetizing but was very sub par even at the restaurants. If you have the opportunity may I suggest making a reservation at the Bellamar restaurant on the Royal Service side, they seemed to have a well trained chef. When we arrived we did not like our room and the staff were very accommodating and we got a much better room the next day. Might I add that most of the time check-in was not until 4pm. Staff were amazing but be prepared to tip. A lot! The room was great for a 3.5-4 star resort but it definitely wasn't 5 star. The grounds are beautiful and so is the beach and perfect for kids as it's shallow for quite a long time. We had a great time, but I don't think we'll ever go back to Cuba. It's kind of a been there, done that sort of place. One piece of advice. Do not arrive at the airport any less than 3.5 hours before your flight in the high season. First you have to wait in line to check your luggage, then you have to wait in line to pay the airport tax ($25 pesos/person) then you have to wait in a very long line (we waited almost 2 hours) to go through passport control. All in all Cuba was meh but the resort was nice and the people were extremely friendly and definitely don't go for the food. If you have high expectations you're more than likely going to be disappointed. Read less

After returning from the Paradisus varadero resort & spa there are just a few areas which I would like to make you aware of. Firstly the lack of different bars available you can only get a drink in... Read more the lobby bar as the fun bar does not open as advertised 10 am til 1am, the food in the Buffett restaurant is cold and food can be under cooked. We walked out of the Mexican restaurant as we were only given the meat for fajitas and the tortillas they had run out of and nachos ? We asked on day one for the patio door locked to be fixed and was also reported to our rep and still wasn't fixed by the time we left. Pool was dirty and not cleaned daily. There was a dead rat out our room . Building work opposite hotel which we were not advised of before departure,worked is carried on through the night and we were told that this is standard and nothing they could do apart from offering to move us to another area within the resort. All of the above was reported and signed by management at the hotel. Hotel staff not quick at clearing the tables in buffet restaurant or serving drinks,All in all not upto standard very disappointed. Rooms basic and need updating as previous customers have already commented on which are correct. Read less

Well well Varadero ! After an amazing 10 dayKuoni Cuba Explorer Kuoni tour with 12 of the most wonderful travelling companions, a great tour guide Betty and our driver Pepino who was afraid of the... Read more Santa Maria non venomous snake wrapped around by backpack on the bus Varadero was NOT Cuba. Having visited many historic places and seen the way of life for the local Cuban who still have ration books cannot afford the basics that we Europeans take for granted Varadero could e any beach resort anywhere in the world. So as a group we were not impressed . We wanted to go back to the real Cuba with its Che and revolution , sugar plantations and the history of this lost country. No 1950s cars here, no turkey vultures hovering. Nothing to give you a clue as to where you are. All inclusive so no bartering . The food was not bad but we had no hot water for 3 days, no light bulb in one of the lamps and a patio door that was dodgy to close. All reported to no avail. Ah Cuba ! The bathroom was a refurb but not 2015 refurb as we would have at home. But still a work in progress. Cuba has only really had tourism since early 1990s. The beach, well is a beach with Palm trees, sand , loungers and blue jellyfish. There are beach bars. Entertainment is there. Although communication re. events is poor. This time of year Canadians come to get away from -40 degrees. Leave any unwanted clothing , smellies, pens, pencils as they are very needed by the local staff working in any hotel . 2 Currencies: 1. CUP local peso worth nothing. The locals are paid this as salary. 2.CUC . This currency only available to get in Cuba as its tourist. Not available outside Cuba. Bring Sterling/ Euros. U.S. Dollars 10% commission. Dollars not wanted tbh. 1 CUC = 25 CUP .Betty our tour guide was on 400 CUPS a month . £100 Sterling = 144 CUCS So if you are going to Cuba go to Cuba . If its Sand and Sangria you want hit the canaries. Read less
