Villa Cuba-don't go there
The worst place to be if you want to have a relaxed holiday.
room - could have been better
The only good thing about the hotel were the drinks and the beach& ocean.
Entertainment- bad, they advertise that they have a kids club, which did not really existed....
Also if you don't tip everybody you don't get the services for which you have already paid...
The first time in Cuba we were...
The first time in Cuba we were in Varadero, at the Villa Cuba. It was a beautiful resort, with everything you needed nearby. This last time we stayed at the Sol Rio de Mares in Guardalavaca. It was absolutely fabulous. The service was unbeatable, the resort was beautiful, the food great, the drinks better. The people we met who worked there were great. All in all I think it was much better than Varadero, although we had a great time at both. The facilies were outstanding, clean. The pool was beautiful, with a nice swim up bar. The view was fabulous, no matter where your room was, all ocean-view. The rooms were nice and clean.
A perfect balanced vacation
Are arrival was prompt with a informative bus ride to hotel.The hotel lobby is beautiful with a river flowing through the bottem. The check in and room selection was great teh busboy did morethan his job having me feel a little akward as this man of maybe 50 years old and 5'2 carried two large suitcases 3 stories up to our room made sure eveything in our room worked and that we were satisfied before attempting to leave we tipped generously afterwards and he was extremly grateful. Our room wasnt the fanciest room in teh world but is was clean two double beds rum in and water in the fridge a nice balcony with the best view ever is teh in between the beach and the main hotel. The restuarant was suffieciant though i think you need to approach from a cuban perspective what do they eat. I found a great selectioneating items many did not chose. Breakfeast i stuck with hard boiled egg toast fruit and cafe con leche. This resort has teh best cappicino ,esspresso, and coffee in general i drank liek 7 a day . Lunch was okay dinner was great stick to rice and fish with a vege and your good to go.The bars where good prompt service too much rum I ended up having to order all my drinks saying a little bit a rum please. The pool bar guy is great cool guy good convorsation. The lobby bar is very hot and gets all the older ruder tourist it seemed so a smile went a long way.The beach was amazing. The best ive seen it looks just like the pictures in postcards. The sand is so fine and the water so clear. The nightshows where okay just somthing to do after dinner.Well thats all for now any further questions ask away. i would suggest this hotel for anyone but dontgo if your expecting to have 5 star treatment and be spoon fed off a silver platter.
One more thing tipping is good yes its all inclusive but there providing a service a dollar will not hurt i tip a dollar for good service a drink dinner ect..... My awsome view from my room in a villa..................................................................
This second time we stayed at...
This second time we stayed at a hotel called Brisas Del Caribe in Varadero Cuba.
It ran us around $1600 for air and hotel (all-inclusive) It was a nice hotel, but it was still a hotel. I do not think that I will go back to this area of Cuba again, I have been there twice and enjoyed it but have done pretty much everything that I can do there!
BRAND NEW RESORT IN VARADERO
Tuesday December 7 to Tuesday December 14, 2010
As we were looking for a week getaway spot with hopefully a little sunshine and to celebrate our "39th" Wedding Anniversary, we picked Varadero, Cuba. We had been there three years ago and really liked the beaches there. We chose the brand new five star RIU VARADERO.
When completed, the resort will offer 1110 guestrooms.
The Beach area was smaller than the resorts either side of us, but had loungers and some parasols with bamboo thatched roofs. The staff at the beach are very helpful and bring a lounger to the spot you like on the beach.
The swimming pool area was huge, also with lots of loungers and comfortable pads. There are some sheltered areas (I counted about ten and they were snatched up by the early birds in the morning). There is a swim-up bar in the middle.
There were five bars open when we were there:
Lobby Bar "Mariposa" - also a Cappuccino Bar was opened up here
Theater Bar "Azahar"
Poolside Snack Bar "Adelfa"
Swim-up Bar "Ortencia"
Our room - #21128 in Pod #21 - was on the first floor as we requested at check-in. We had a huge king-size bed, 2 comfy chairs, one small table, a desk, mini fridge, stocked with 2 cans of beer, 4 cans of soda and a bottle of water. As we were on the ground floor, we had a small patio with garden view and 2 chairs with one small table.
Other amenities included, a coffee-maker, radio/CD player, Satellite TV, Large closets with safe (no charge), iron and ironing board, bathroom with hairdryer and supplies- shampoo, bath gel, soap bars & body lotion. Towels are exchanged daily.
The RIU does offer internet services. The charge is 5 CUC per half hour. From others, I heard the service was very slow.
A few nights there was entertainment in the Theatre. The "Animation Team" consisted of about a dozen amazing young local dancers who put on shows such as "Michael Jackson Night" and "International Night".
In the Lobby Bar, there was an awesome guitar player/singer. And there was also a wonderful lady singer, accompanied by a piano player.
Our package was 7 night all-inclusive with Signature Tours. Included was flight - room - all meals - all drinks - taxes. Our all-inclusive price was $555.00 + 240.00 airport fees for a total of $795.00 CDN per person.

Hotel Villa Cuba
My boyfriens and I are travelling to Cuba January 6, 2004 for a week and are wondering if anyone has some honest opinions or reviews of the Hotel Villa Cuba. We have read mixed reviews and are a little scared!
