This resort is not in Varadero, you fly into Holguin then it's about 90 minutes by bus.I have visited Cuba solo for years and one of the best was Don Lino which I visited in March, there was a good mix of couples and singles. It's not a party hearty type of place but although the beach was a little rocky along the shore it's wide and beautiful great for sunning and shelling, there are lots of sun beds and no shortage of palapas it's close to a Cuban town to meet and mingle with locals and a very friendly staff.There's free tennis and horse back riding it's only 3 star so very inexpensive Check the reviews on trip advisor, the overwhelming majority are positive.

I think there are 2 different types of solo travellers. There are those(such as myself) who travel solo and enjoy meeting other people and making friends on vacation. The other type is more of a recluse personality, who vacation to find solitude and escape the stresses of everyday life. Basically, they want to be left alone and not bothered. After reading some of the reviews of the don Lino I kinda get the impression this is more of a solitude type place. Now I don't mean to question richiehere, after all he has been there, but that's the impression I got after reading the solo reviews. I prefer as a solo traveller if there is a bit more of an active social life in the evening, as opposed to the resort turning into a ghost town after 10 pm. Just something to keep in mind.

Breezes Varadero (adults only). Kawama? I don't recommend ROC Barlovento--not sure if it was just my timing, but the crowd was VERY unfriendly/unwelcoming to a solo traveler. As soon as I moved over to the Kawama beach, I had conversations struck up immediately.

I am sort of an in-between solo traveler, I think. I like to chat with people, meet up at meal times now and then, but basically be left alone!

Resorts that cater to the 20 to 30 yr crowd may not be so hot for someone who is quite a bit older. 50 to 60 ish and up.

I think the OP's age is relevant for suggestions. Look for resorts that don't stick you with a single supplement. they definitely attract more singles.
