We are a Swiss family (2 kids with 5 and 1 year) and have spent 2 weeks in this beautiful resort in April 2015. The beach is top and the pool area is also great. Even the gests (like everywhere... Read more ) reserve the seats they use then hours later for short time, you can find always something in the shade. The buffet (breakfast, lunch, dinner) is big and you can always find something you like. I missed often a local dish apart the usual fancy stuff. Very nice is the live music over lunchtime at the pool bar. The theme restaurants are very good and I recommend them. The room we had was big (big enough even for our family with all the toys we had with us). The employees are correct and for Cuban helpful (see below). I think it was the best choice for Varadero. But I missed a playground for the kids and something to play as well in the pool (a slide for example). This was very much better next door in Iberostar (fantastic kids-pool, fantastic playground, fantastic kids club). The minidisco was god and our kids liked it. General information: 1. It is cuba and that means it is socialistic country. An employee is not paid for his performance; he has his fix salary, whatever he is doing during this time. 2. The salary in cuba is very low and the people do not have much. An PhD professor in the university has an salary about 170 cuban peso. With this he can pay electricity and water. For the rest (food, electronics, etc) he needs the convertible peso. For one convertible peso he has to pay in this year about 25 cuban peso. Thatâ€™s why there are more or less three social classes: the regular people, the people with contact with tourists (they hope always for tips), and the politicians. Because the tips of a cleaning woman or barkeeper the have a much higher salary then a physician, layer, professor, etc. Example: We were in a small â€œamusement parkâ€ in varadero. The employees of the carousel put the kids on it and in this time we were there Iâ€™ve seen twice, that they walked away and kept the kids alone (they went for toilet or to buy something or whatever). When the kids started to cry, then other guest hat to stop the carousel and put them down. The reaction of the people got me the impression that this seems to be normal. Example: The tour operator in the hotel has no map of cuba to explain better the tours she is offering. She says, that cuba does not produce one, thatâ€™s why. But she did not understand my idea to rent a map from the store and make a copy in the office just next door. For this you need motivation. In a socialistic country everything is regulated and kills every effort or motivation. And lot of other example in this two weeks PS to the stuff: The stuff should know where you have an AED Defibrillator instead the ambulance 20 minutes later had to bring it. Without one a reanimation is less successful (although in this case it would not help anyway) Read less
