Value Priced but will not return
I went there with my friends last June 2005.
-good location, right in downtown Varadero. Rent a moped and ride up and down the hotel/Varadero strip.
-Rooms are good - Try to get a room with a pool view or ocean view.
-Food was okay, but I normally don't expect too much when I travel to Cuba.
-Beach was great. Varadero is one of the best beaches in Cuba, although I prefer Cayo Coco.
-Close to Havana. It is about 1 1/2 hours to Havana. So check out Old Havana, the markets and other historic sites.
-not much food selection
-okay nightly entertainment.
I stayed here earlier this year and will be back in September. The people were great, lots of younger guests, the pool is nice and big, the food was even passable, which is saying something in Cuba.
The location is great, any closer to the town and it would BE in the town. You walk across the street and you are in town, Havana Club is right across the street, La Comprasita is just a short walk.
Unique Quality: The scooter rental guy in front of the hotel is the best in Varadero, he's very accomadating. We always rent from him, vene when we stay in other hotels.
