My husband and I travelled to Cuba for the first time for March Break this year and we were not disappointed. The resort is a great size, large enough to have lots of variety, but not so large that you cannot comfortably walk anywhere on the resort. The rooms were spacious and clean, and were very well maintained. We had...

The Hotel is quoted as the second best Hotel in Cuba by Tripadvisor, knowing the nº1 is wanted to give it a try and was disappointed. Service is good and they are there ready to help. Food is an other point: beach bar is offering hamburguers and sauciches of 'fast food quality' , the buffet near the pool is very...

I think most of what has been said already is true. It has been a real pleasure to stay at this hotel. Everything about it was great. Staff especially made the holiday. Do I need to expand - No, i don't think so. Our maid Yolande was absolutley great. We celebrated our anniversary during our first week of stay and...

I found the hotel to be very clean and quiet and well maintained. I had heard lots of bad about the food in Cuba, but the food at the hotel was very good. I had some things I didn't care for but I was trying things that I hadn't tried before as well so it's to be expected. The bread...

We stayed for a week. The hotel was what you would expect for a Cuban five star, food, entertainment, service etc all excellent. For me, what let it down a little was the rooms, which in my opinion, are NOT five star. Maybe 3.5 ish. A little tired, though the bathroom was beautiful. For me a five star hotel (and...

Hola, Just returned from our second visit to the Iberostar Varadero and as previously experienced, it was just as great as our first visit six years ago. The beach is magnificent, our junior suite room was fantastic. Thanks to Armando in the Lobby Bar, Emma at the Swim Up Bar and the gang at the Beach Bar for making us...

Probably like most people you read the reviews and try and take a balanced view, which we did and wondered just what we would find. We should not have been worried! The staff at this hotel are the best we have come across in many years of travelling the world, without exception, they could not be more helpful or friendly....

This was our first trip to Cuba and, after reading a number of reviews regarding resorts, we chose the Iberostar. The Iberostar made our vacation for us. The resort itself is very well kept and clean. The people are the nicest people I have ever met. I did not encounter one disgruntled employee...they all seemed to like what they were...

This was our first Cuban vacation after six years on the Mayan. Primarily convenience dictated this trip as there is only one charter company and one destination out of Windsor Ontario this year. Flight first. Do not waste your money on Sunwing's "Elite Plus". We chose this as it promised a number of things including extra leg room. Not! Air...
