Spent 2 weeks here at the back end of June 2014. The hotel is slightly on the dated side which means it's more akin to a 4 star but Sandals have just sold the resort so is under going an extensive overhaul which will result it looking and feeling like a 5 star hotel. However what sets this hotel apart is the service. It's simply phenomenal. Every member of staff from the cleaners through to the management were fantastic - nothing was to much.
The rooms are large and spacious with huge beds and equally huge bathrooms. There are 4 A la carte restaurants - we found the beach grill the best for the food and the view at sunset is stunning. The buffet offers a wide variety of great food which really does cater for everyone. The main pool is massive and the resort also has two quiet pools with 3/4 jacuzzis so again caters for most people. The beach is just divine and is probably the reason tourists go to Varadero. The entertainment was massive which ranged from pool and beach activities throughout the day and culminated in evening shows where slightly cheesy but all good fun. The hotel has great gym facilities which include tennis/squash courts.
I would without hesitation recommend this hotel to anyone and if we ever return to Varadero we return here in a heartbeat.More
