Above average 3 star accomodations IMO
I had a great stay at Playa Caleta. The room was very, very clean (Thanks to Bacopa for that!) and was quite roomy. In addition to 2 twin sized beds, we also had an arm chair, desk and mini fridge in our room. The good sized balcony had 2 plastic chairs and a small table. The air conditioning was wonderful, and the satellite tv in the rooms included many English channels - including Edmonton! It was good to get some news from home after a few days.
Front desk staff were for the most part helpful. Our Sunwing rep, Annie was fabulous and was a huge help!
Serving staff everywhere in the resort were great. Tamara, at the lobby bar, really went out of her way to help me with my Spanish and to answer all of my curious questions. The servers in the restaurants were equally wonderful. I can't say enough about the great people that we encountered here.
Unique Quality: None of the hotels in Varadero have heated pools. If you are going to be there in the winter months, plan on swimming in the ocean, it's much warmer than the pools! The poolside entertainment was enjoyable.
The beach is very large, but there are not very many palapas. If shade is really important to you, you might want to stake out a spot early in the day. There are 2 bars that you can access from the beach for snacks and beverages during the day.
The coffee shop downstairs serves the most wonderful coffees - complete with fancy syrups. If you like your coffee, be sure to check out their menu as you are sure to find something to suit your tastes. And be sure to stop by the lobby bar in the morning before you head into the breakfast buffet for a coffee con leche - trust me, you'll understand why after you try it!
The food at the buffet was very good, and there was a very large selection to choose from. Everyone in our group was pleased with the menu offerings daily.
Directions: At the extreme west end of the peninsula, about a mile from downtown Varadero. (7CUC cab ride)
