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 :

beautiful site, a la carte restaurants ok, beer is good, the beach is beautiful but narrow, there are chips in homes that are broken crust is super huge bonne.site peusi long walk!

Negative :

buffets not no extra pancake or French toast déjeuner.la room is small and the moldy could I ask for another room and he replied that it was not possible, air conditioning not working for 2 weeks and I watched a big son of dust that floated with the big task at the ceiling. not very short! the sheets were not changed despite the fact that I've thrown in a ball pit after the first week. the maid was back on the bed despite the tasks and the sand! not that hard either! Do not change your money at the hotel because you care too much for a 2 minute walk to the right when you're facing the canal there is a bank with a lower interest rate. and if you like action, well you're away! 5 CUC taxi to go to the centroet the same to return. the evening show are quite flat and the host does not exist in the days!

Positive :

Near the town of Varadero. We can eat out at restaurants and explore the city. Nice site but nothing more. Beautiful beach but many shells. Friendly staff, slow service, but hey, you're on vacation! A successful change rooms in a day.

Negative :

Always the same food. The mayonnaise-based salad dressings and yogurt hang on long counters with flies. At dinners, paella with rice or spaghetti and attention if you want shrimp, we put you in a just and if you dare ask for more, you made the big mine. Mediocre buffet, always the same thing and more, meals are cold even though there are stoves! The a la carte restaurants are mediocre and the service is very slow. The site gives us the right to go out to dinner with Al Capone. We have not been informed initially and if we would not informed, they could not qualify because it's part of the package with the site Kawama. It's not a big loss, because it is really rotten. The atmosphere and the restaurant is enchanting, but it stops there. At the bar, depending on day and servers, there was no ice, no margarita or moitos or beer or coffee! Service a bit faster if tip and wait if you do not give. In two weeks we were there, our bed was never changed and our towels were changed once. In addition, we did not have beach towels for two days. The rooms in section 20 are scary. Dust and clients who have gone before us (I do not know how) and that the room had been made, we could see in the mirror traces of toothpaste. Sale at will. We changed rooms and the cleanliness was better. No toilet paper and Kleenex. Bring it with you! We came back with colds and turista! General cleanliness is ordinary. I will not go back and do not advise it. For young people (my 20 year old daughter was with me), the site suited him because she loved the shows and the disco and meetings she made. The food was okay for her. Happy holidays.

Positive :

Cuba is Cuba! If you are looking for comfort and cuisine of the house, it is not in a hot country you will find it! With a little open-minded people you will find a smiling, friendly and always ready to explain you their culture. Nice staff, a smile attracts another ... The rooms although small, are clean and correct * (remember that this is a 3 1/2 stars) The buffet is good and we always find something to put in their mouths, at worst a toast with bananas ! The snake bar lunch is very good and there is a good procedure for booking a la carte restaurants. Near the entrance of the town (5th Ave) that Varadero is easy walking. You will find 2 O chip market to 12 and 15th Ave. Very good very affordable restaurant near the hotel ... to change the buffet! Varadero is safe, you can walk there without fear. Ask the personel of the hotel or to find out, eat and have excursions other than those offered by tour operators. You can go with Alex snokling CUC for 15 pesos for 2 hours.

Negative :

We requested a room change since the first was too wet and airless. We were chilled by moisture from the bed. The staff was not surprised at our request when we mentioned that we were in isle 23 ... the other occupants had made the same request. It seems that this section is not sunny and no balcony. And yes, unfortunately, the tourists leave their garbage on the beach .... What a pity some respect please

Positive :

The site is large and quiet, proximity to downtown Varadero.

Negative :

The beach is not cleaned. and shellfish waste. Poorly maintained pool. It was not my first visit to Cuba and I have rarely seen a buffet so little change. The unkempt room, a pump was going day and night under very unpleasant establishment. Three a la carte restaurants was very good one. In the same category of best hotel in Varadero ago
