Just returned from a fantastic holiday, hotel was very good. The location was perfect, minutes walk to the beach, the sea was very clear and clean, water activities available, beach bar and for those who like activity plenty of sports, volleyball, football and aqua aerobics, The pool area was also very clean, with games available. There is a pool bar, ice cream parlour and towel change around the pool.
The rooms are more than adequate with fridge, iron, hair dryer, the bed linen and towels were changed everyday, also in the room is a safe deposit box.
The food was good always something different, yes the main buffet could get hectic, we tried all the al a carte, all excellent, my favourite was the Italian.
You do need to get out and see Cuba, it is a wonderful friendly country, we went to Havana, the overnight trip to Trinidad, day trip which included old sugar factory, speed boat trip, also swam with the dolphins. Spent time in the town, trip to the Beatles Bar which is a very good night out. A member of out party had cause to visit the medical centre at the hotel and again can't fault the service.
Do spray yourself in the evenings with insect repellant and remember the sun screen even when cloudy.
Overall the holiday was perfect, would I return to Cuba yes I would, would I return to the same resort yes, but that will depend on UK holiday companies, Thomsons have already stopped going to Varadero, such a shame
