This beachfront place pulls out all the stops when it comes to facilities – it’s got 4 pools, 4 restaurants and a hefty list of activities.
Thanks to a jungle surrounding, the Iberostar Varadero has a private, secluded feel. It’s parked next to the beach, too, so you’ve got powdery white sands on the doorstep.
Pools, bars and restaurants are scattered around the palm-dotted complex. Varadero’s not far if you fancy exploring – a taxi can zip you there in 20 minutes.

Family Trip with a wheelchair
I was apprehensive about going away. I am a wheelchair user full time and was worried I would struggle with access. I was pleasantly surprised. The complex is quite flat, our room was spacious and cool thanks to the aircon (air con is only in rooms and the coffee shop as the hotel is set to be open air so ceiling fans, it can get very hot and sticky) with an adapted wheelchair friendly shower. Wooden bridge with viewing platform on the beach was lovely. My only gripe regarding disabled access was that there were no accessible toilets in the main hotel area, so I had to go back to my room, which could be a bit of a pain in the heat or in the middle of the evening entertainment show. Food was ok. There was a lot to choose from. We have children with food allergies and my husband is Vegan. Veganism is not really understood in Cuba, but there was always fresh salad and veg to eat at the hotel. Childrens allergies were a little harder to deal with, guest services wrote a letter for us to give to staff to read. Which did help. But it was Antoine and Mabel in the restaurant that went absolutely out of their way to help and make sure the girls were safe. I was always glad to see them at meal times. We tried two of the al carte restaurants, Japanese and Seafood. But the lobster was better in the main restaurant in my opinion. Entertainment was good. Pool was a hive of activity in the day time. Lots of music and games. My kids enjoyed the mini disco every evening. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Hotel was spotlessly clean and tidy. Gardens beautifully manicured.More
Excellence in every sense of the word
You hear so much about how poor is the food in Cuba, that I was expecting "rice and beans" every day. What a variety of delicious food, what service, it was truly a feast every time we sat at the table. The bars are well stocked and the service is excellent. The pools are clean and the beach is beautiful.More
Just came from a week vacation at this resort. We went with other 3 couples to celebrate the 50th birthday of 4 members of our crew. The experience was fantastic end to end. The hotel even though is a bit old is very well kept and maintained. The beach is beautiful with clear turquoise water, clean and lots of chairs and shade. The food is very good at the buffet restaurant as well as at the a la carte restaurants. The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. Entertainment at the theatre was good, you can also find live music every day at the restaurants, lobby and pool. The best part of our trip was the amazing staff who were the ones responsible for making this a memorable experience for us. Especial mention to Charlie, Yiovanny, Eduardo at the beach bars, Anet and Ariel at the lobby bar, Margarita and Lizette at the restaurants, Raquel, Claudia and Laura at the front desk. Thank you to all of them.More
Excellent hotel, lots of things to do, the a la carte restaurants and buffet were excellent. The staff were amazing especially charly, eduardo in the beach bar, chocolat who was part of the entertainment team and Armando who was on the concierge. The beach is really clean and its got plenty of sun beds and the water sports that are part of the AI is good, but you do have additional services, if required e.g snorkelling and parasailing etc.More
An Incredible Emotional Experience
Wow what can I say. In 5 days our lives changed. My husband celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary while there. The hotel is magnificent! It is clean, bright, modern and has plenty of little areas that a couple can retreat to if they need some privacy on the grounds. The beach is gorgeous! Nothing short of paradise. The staff... WOW! Most of the staff there are incredible! So warm, friendly, attentive and positive. We really connected with many of the staff there. A few in particular just made our day every day and I'm proud to say we have a few new Cuban friends we can look forward to seeing every year because we are definitely going to become regulars! The food was great. We set the bar really low and it exceeded our expectations. They have nightly shows and the entertainment is incredible. Over all 10 stars!!!!:)More
