We stayed here for 4 nights and spend the days relaxing on the beach and walking around Varadero.
The hotel is old. If you are looking for new, spiffy or immaculate, do not stay here. The rooms were relatively clean and the air conditioning worked. There was a tv but we never turned it on. The hotel was peaceful at night. The staff was friendly and helpful although they did not speak much English. There were a lot of Russians there when we were there and it is kind of funny listening to them speaking in broken English to the Cuban staff who don't speak much English themselves.
The breakfast was very good and is included with the room which is very reasonably priced. We ate some lunches and dinners there too and they were good and reasonably priced as well.
The hotel is right on the beach and it is spectacular and not at all crowded. It is shallow for a long way out and there is a lifeguard right there as well.
If you accept that you are in a third world country and are content with foregoing the luxuries and standards that we take for granted here, you enjoy rubbing shoulders with the locals and you want to get out and learn some Spanish and eat at a variety of local restaraunts in town, then this is a great place to spend a few nights. If you want to sit around a nice sparkly pool and sip fruity drinks before you waddle back over to the all inclusive buffet then you should book yourself into one of those resorts in Varadero - there are plenty of them.
