Kawama at Varadero, Cuba – Vacation ratings

Hotel in city of Varadero, directly on the beach, many different building for rooms. The first all inclusive hotel at Cuba, since 1950. Beautiful beach. Economic hotel. For young family, mini-club available. Restauration simple.

Positive :

The location of the hotel is really great. Located at the beginning of Varadero, it is easy to walk in the city, if you're good walker you renderez Calle 62 has the other side of town. The rooms are clean but leaves a desired. I liked the pool, there are even shows syncronisée swimming. The time that this site is very pretty, lots of vegetation.

Negative :

Foul odor upon entering the restaurant buffet. Terrible food and not fresh. We have been sick since the first day, bring you more as to eat elsewhere, small restaurant not very far. The buildings lack maintains, really old mattresses, sleeping in the track left by time and wear. The staff is very friendly compared to other hotels of Varadero unless you TIPER well. The beach is not all cleaned up, there's a party with LOTS of rocks and waste on which you bump or injured feet

Positive :

This is a good place if you want to leave the city. The same for Villa Tortuga and Barlovento hotels that are within 10 minutes from the town of Varadero. For a hotel of this price, I suggest you go eat in town. It does not cost very expensive and the portions are very generous and it's very good. Regarding the hotel, pool level is great yaa it everywhere and the beach is great! Buffets level diversity is not great but this was a phenomenon found in all the hotels in the country. But for me will have in Cuba why? to the beach, alcohol, food and activities at will. So I have no negative point made it all depends on the nature of your trip. Note: the site is huge Kawama 10 minutes walk from one end to another. The shows are very good especially the magic show. This is the third time I go to Cuba and each hotel in its strength compared to others but to have a good trip out of your hotel to see what is happening elsewhere!

Negative :

No!

Positive :

The beach and sea were really beautiful. This is not the big luxury as some other destinations that I could do (Republic, Mexico ...), but it will always do what you want (rest, trips, ...). I found the place still very clean and we had some great meetings with Quebecers, French, Ontario.

Negative :

Unfortunately, the food is ordinary, the buffet is ok, but little variety and it all comes back often. Some (es) Cubans (es) at the Hotel were not very welcoming when we had applications (towels, toilet paper ....). This is a detail, but for some it can be shocking.

Positive :

The hotel has its charm with its stone buildings. Not have the luxury of a 5 star, but charm and a score less artificial than large complex hotelliers batis exclusively for tourists. The site is clean, with trees and flowers, gardeners who clean and security guards. The rooms are small but clean and functional and relatively comfortable kings beds. Dance classes and displays program activity. Lack of information for all water activities.

Negative :

lack of storage in the rooms to move the machine. Hotel clean in general but on cleanliness in restaurants, and presence of mold around the stone ceiling of the restaurant buffet. The buffet food was cold and crappy, sometimes unpalatable, even when one does not expect any luxury ... arrive early to have a few choices, otherwise it is really not much has to be acceptable to chew. Beach towels are not always available, we waited three days. Bring your own towels. By cons, we had our own towels every day in the rooms. The beach is beautiful, a pity that people leave their glasses hang out, their straw and cigarette butts. The beach is cleaned every day. Nice pool but the water is colder than the sea No bar on the beach or the pool. The staff did not smile at first, little service at the buffet for drinks. By cons, and we started to talk with staff, they are lovely. Exhausted, but nice. We must not forget that they work 12 to 15 hours a day and do not always eat with their appetites. Choice very limited to bars, not available mojito.

If you want to learn German and English, this hotel is a good choice. In general, I did not enjoy my trip because I wanted a place for singles and I found myself in a place where there was that family and couples. In addition, there were not many people who do not speak French. Moreover, the activities included in the package are very limited. So plan to bring at least $ 400 per person. In short, I would not recommend this hotel to Quebec.

Positive :

we go to this hotel this winter and we have to spend one month. This is not a consultant for those that want to gain weight and have fun, because more than ordinary food at the buffet plus ca council have in the cafeteria eating out beautiful sea views and impeccable service. the beach is beautiful when maintained, we were lucky because we had several days with good waves, the water is clear and warm, the sand is beautiful. we were 5 and had two rooms communicating with a large balcony with a sea view, ideal for spending time in the evening. regarding service to the room it was perfect but do not forget to give a little something for those people living with the least if anything. Varadero is a 3 minute walk and you can go safely in the evening because this country is extremely safe. we eat at the Cuban lobster, miam.miam ... but établisser the price before you and ensure that everything is included because ns have been surprised, but nothing major .... also made attention to the beach to the seller of cigar they all vest and a badge of rescuer, believe that it has arranged with the guy who governs, in some small mafia, but maybe I'd do the same thing if I lived on a diet of political dictatorship and deprivation. in short, who am I to judge? voullez short if you relax a little cool I recommend it, but difficult if you are not going to this hotel. good trip. ps the food in a la carte restaurant is good and if you drag one has the relationiste tips you will have a restaurant every night.

Negative :

In summary we will losrque in cuba should not be expected eaten as king, but our fammille is dead and no one was sick. for those who love the party Kawama is not the destination, the evening entertainment was dying of laughter, but fortunately ends early enough. if you live on your hunger there is good pizza at a restaurant near the hotel. My main negative comment is for the traveler, do not scratch and Gatter people working in all these countries or the sun and the beach attracts us. share ca've never killed anyone and you will not regret it, do not make your el tabarnacos chipos, thank you and bon voyage
