Hidden Gem!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 4, 2012

The Palma Real is my new favorite resort in Varadero. I loved the location - 63rd Street and 2nd Avenue - it was very easy to get out and about the town without spending a ton of money on taxis. The Calle 62 bar is a 2 block walk from the hotel - we ended up there several times during the week of our stay. Sure, it's a 2-block walk from the beach, but they have a nice house at the beach for drinks and food and the beach in this area is the best in Varadero. The pools were nice and clean and we really enjoyed ourselves at the swim-up bar one afternoon! (maybe a little too much?) Our room was large and clean, the beds were good and we had a mini fridge and balcony. What more can you ask for? The rooms were a little outdated, but for the price of this place, it was well worth it, in my mind.

Unique Quality: The food at the resort was very good, and there were several restaurants to choose from. The buffet had great selections of food every time we ate there, the hamburgers at the 24 hour snack bar were very good (and that's saying something - I usually avoid hamburgers in Cuba at all costs!), the pizza place made excellent pizzas, and the omelettes at the a la carte restaurant in the mornings quickly became a regular stop for our group. The staff at this resort were truly outstanding. They couldn't do enough for us, and always with a smile. They really were the best! I plan to return to Palma Real again and again.

Directions: Basically at the centre of Varadero, within easy walking distance of restaurants, bars, markets, even Josone Park. A perfect location in Varadero!

The room was clean, fresh linen or towels daily and the staff fairly courteous. The sliding doors didn't lock so i rented the safe key. Buffet food mostly tasted unusual. Once had to remind the cook that the frozen turkey cutlet was not cooked completely. Morning omelets were good. Mostly the restaurant was a good place to meet up with new friends. The 24 hour restaurant facility had some good reviews by others.
Some form of entertainment was provided every evening.
Tips are a part of the package with some staff adopting different patrons.
Be mindful of your own conduct as staff are monitored as to their behavior with non-Cubans.

Unique Quality: This is decent facility. It's only rated 3.5* It's unique benefit comes from it's location, close to the ocean and yet close enough to local shopping and the Cuban elements of Veradera. It's not insulated like the higher end resorts up the peninsula. No mosquitoes!

This 4 *hotel has 400+rooms and is located in the middle of the peninsula. It's divided in several small buildings and doesn't give you the impression to be in such a big place. It's an all-inclusive only hotel, not beach front but has a private beach which is only 5mins walk where you also have a bar.
The hotel has 5 pools, 4 restaurants (international, italian, chineese and cuban), lots of entertainment, bars and shops everywhere.
The rooms were big and each have either a terrace or balcony .
Beware of the receptionist ! Before you know it, he grabs your wrist and puts one of those bright blue bracelet that you have to wear at all time till you leave...

wow I am kinda surprised on the revies here..maybe they have pulled their socks up...I stayed there 3 years ago and it was not much to be impressed by...unfortunately the food was lo quality vs other 3.5-4 stars i have stayed at in varadero. second it's more of a hotel than a resort as it does not have the nice sandy -palm tree pools that back onto the varadero beach...which is the main reason we are here..right!!!
it's not terribly bad..but just a comparison....we stayed at brisas del caribe the nextr year and what a difference..a great middle of the road resort, well lais out, much better food, and a great overall experience
