Spent a nice summer vacation at the Areas Doradas in August. The weather was really hot and sunny!! But it was nice to spend the day at the beach to keep cool with the cool breeze and ocean water. The white sandy beach is the best and the water is so clear. Even though it is middle of summer for...

My boyfriend and I returned from Arenas Doradas on 5th Dec.after being there for a 1 week vacay. Its Cuba so always a nice beach and friendly people. The first room we were in was in Bldg. 3, barely warm water from tap, and quite dirty and old. We asked to be moved the following day to Bldg 6 (rm...

This resort was recommended to us but everyone has their own idea of "great" We were a group of 23, somehow the amazing Yoly was able to put us together in building 8 and a couple right beside us in building 9. We were pretty close to the beach and a few minute walk to the main building and lobby....

This was our fourth trip to Arenas Doradas, and we loved it. Honestly this place just keeps getting better. When I read the bad reviews I can't believe that people went to the same resort, or maybe they have unrealistic expectations and should just stay home. The food was probably the best I have had in Cuba. We really enjoyed...

I researched this place extensively by reading reviews and going through pictures and I think you won't be disappointed if your expected standards are realistic you remember what country you're in. We had so much fun, everything went really smoothly checking in, the bellhop was nice and brought us to our room in a little golf cart vehicle and gave...

We have recently returned from a 7 nights stay at the ‘Roc Arenas Doradas Hotel’ in Varadero and sadly we were terribly disappointed. The hotel is advertised as a 4 star hotel which is most certainly is not and would struggle to be considered a 3 star establishment. We arrived on the evening of the 15th November and walking into...

As others have mentioned, it's what you expect from Cuba. Pool: Great swim up bar, afternoon activities if you wish to join Beach: Bar and bbq restaurant within seconds of the beach. Lots of space to sit and relax Food (A la cartes): The Italian and Mexican A la cartes were great! (We didn't try the Cuban restaurant, but heard...

Nice economy hotel. Very clean - and good food . Restaurant food is excellent - smoked salmon steaks - good wine and desserts. Pleasant music. In the evening, well danced entertainment on the stage in the theatre or in the pool. Beach clean plenty on sun beds . As for me, too many noisy with bad manners tourists from Russia...

I have just returned from the Roc Arenas Doradas. The hotel is what i expect of Cuban hotels (it was my 8th time in Cuba), it is maintained as well as possible and, although lacking comforts on american hotels, was quite liveable. Our room had recently been renovated, the bed was comfortable, even if the mattress was stiff by our...
