Everything is spotless. Nothing to say except that the staff prefers to speak English and Spanish. We who have a chance or two per year to practice this was not always easy to do.

Positive :

The food is good, the staff are always vigilant and his business. We do not achaler for tips and courteous service remains even without tip while in the town of Varadero is just the opposite! Relaxing stay without noise in quiet rooms and areas in general.

Negative :

Lack of any short music and Latin music. It is not necessary to put strong but to put in the background, especially at the bar. We recommended and there has been an effort of fact during our stay. The old Cuban music, songs, folklore would be very appropriate.

Very nice beautiful hotel.Plage. Very nice staff who appreciated a lot to talk to them in Spanish.

Positive :

Very pleasant stay .. We had a small very little frequented pool next to our room it was awesome. Excellent musical evenings at the bar and different every night.

Negative :

Unfortunately exterior spas were all defective and off. Near the waterfall in the main pool coating the soil is broken several, it is not reported, it can easily injure feet. It's a shame. A terribly hard and uncomfortable bed.

beautiful location, nice rooms, clean, quiet, beautiful beach, decent food

the restaurant near the beach is the weak point of this place (food, cleanliness and service), too many Cuban folklore show (one would suffice), foul odors during the site (sewers?)

Very nice site and lush vegetation. Very large room, garden suite, clean. Cheerful and friendly staff. Excellent food at the buffet and a la carte restaurants. Huge and clean beach. Beach umbrellas and chairs on the beach in sufficient quantity. The hotel was full but we thought we were almost alone because of the tranquility everywhere whether on the beach or around the pools. Very relaxing. If you like animation, there is something for everyone. Shows good taste 2 nights and more professional than those already seen in other hotels in Cuba. We would recommend this hotel. 5 *.

Positive :

The site, the staff friendly and efficient, the beach, good food and wine good enough for Cuba

Negative :

no

Nice hotel, close to Varadero and easy access by bus. Quiet place.

Positive :

A large and beautiful beach ideal for walkers, many umbrella (palapa) on the beach needs not make it early to reserve a space. The main pool is very well maintained and the other pools are ideal for tranquility.

Negative :

For a complex considered as a 5 star, the food is just ok. The most bothersome in our room was bad odors from outside the morning and sometimes in the evening.

WOW. 18 years and older. Transport by taxi from the airport to the hotel, very appreciated. Page wow, great food, service with a smile and very professional, renovated room.

Positive :

Many positive in this area. -Renovated room, large and super clean (3009) the household was excellent. Hot water at all times with great pressure for the shower. -Beautiful beach, no seaweed, no rock, deep (large), no long walk. Deckchairs available at all times. -Eating a la carte (4) perfect service and good quality food. Buffet ... well it's a buffet, very very good eats! Very well maintained garden 18s + WIFI for 3.50 CUC to lobby FAST (with your device, iPhone, lap-top) Vin pink, excellent. SERVICES-around was at the height of my expectations. -People are smiling, helping, tip or not!

Negative :

Improved: public toilet, does not reflect the rest of the hotel. None or very little music in public places (atmosphere) not comfortable chairs in restaurants. None of ca tarnished my stay. I would go back!

Excellent 5 star complex. We recommend it without hesitation.

Positive :

Copy and courteous service. Direct roundtrip transportation between the airport of Varadero and the hotel taxi. General cleanliness. No bracelet to wear. Availability chairs at all times as much in the shade than in the sun, whether at the beach or to the central pool. Excellent food with meals at unmatched card in Cuba. Room obviously renovated and spotless. Several international drinks. Mature vegetation. Tranquility of a hotel complex for adults only. Plenty of room on the beach.

Negative :

Cold water pools earlier in the week. Frankly, we do not really find negative points.

I went several times to this hotel and like the last time my expectations have been met and it really at all levels. Upon arrival, Abel and Jaime received us with a beautiful smile in Welcome ... what about JB at Mirador lobby bar always cheerful. I had a great pleasure to meet Felix and his wife Susette that are just a couple absolutely adorable. Angie nice pool with its outstanding service. A big THANK YOU'''' to you all for putting even more'' sun'' during my vacation. A'' special'' THANK YOU to Julie for the particular director to me that really touched me nice touch. Julie is really much more than the service it :-))) Julie, you're really very kind and very caring, I am absolutely certain of your eventual success in your new position. To all, hope to see you again soon. MT
