We stayed here December 17th to the 24th, 2013. The property was very nice for Varadero, everything was newer.
However the resort staff didn't seem very happy or motivated. I felt like a nuisance at times.
The beach is amazing although there's no sunset.
The food was fairly good, remember you are in Cuba.
Go here for the beach and the rum. Don't expect amazing service or food and you'll be fine.
