We had a fantastic time at Ocean Varadero. After dropping several others off at other hotels, I am glad that we arrived here! The hotel itself was not too busy, I'm told this is because we were staying during off-peak times (which I'm told is November - March).
Staff could not have been more polite, welcoming and friendly. We were part of the privilege section of the hotel and if possible, would suggest upgrading to this package. It includes (amongst other things) private pool, executive drinks, 1 hour free wi-fi, access to privilege lounge, on-call butler and probably the biggest perk - queue jump and prior booking at the al acarte restaurants (the looks we got from other hotel guests suggest this perk was well work having!). Our room was spotless, the hotel itself was very well-maintained and had excellent facilities. Special thank you to "Ayda" at the privilege pool bar who was wonderful during our time - I developed a worrying addiction to her iced coffees!
If you are looking for activities / things to do, there are plenty to choose from. We went sky-diving, swimming with dolphins, snorkelling and kayaking to name but a few. Thoroughly recommend this hotel for your holiday in Varadero!More
