Personally I think Socialism, as a concept, is a good idea. The problem is that all people may be created equal, but all people are not the same. Some are ambitious, some not, some are smarter than most, some luckier. Eventually the smarter, ambitious, luckier ones will figure out how to game the system. That’s just how people are, I think. I think it is a universal problem each nation has to figure ...
... for the twentieth time (at least) that with the right amenities and infrastructure, Cuba could become a first-class tourist destination. Our first stop is a book bindery, where a small group of artisans bind collections of poems, essays, even sheets of music by hand. The covers are handmade from a variety of materials including paper, wood chips. flowers and leaves. Each book is unique, and if not to everyone's taste, certainly interesting. Even more ...

No one has ever had more enthusiastic hosts. Although we arrived late the Cubans were waiting for us as we got off the bus, clapping as we paraded like royalty through the two lines they had formed on either side of the path to to the party ...
... who speak Spanish. Here, we've spent out time laying on the beach, playing volleyball and eating. Funny and somewhat irritating that this is "class." After living in Merida, it is a bit uncomfortable and not as fun to be a typical tourist. I don't know if I'll ever really want to be a typical tourist again after these experiences. But for now, we'll rest and enjoy our last day in Cuba. Tomorrow is a long day of travel back home, and just in time for Dia de los muertos!
... s. We loved the heat, but it also didn't give us much of an appetite, so we stuck to the cute little Taco stand next door. Since they didn't speak English and our Spanish was no better, our first taco ended up with only cheese, but it was still good.
In the evening we did a bit more roaming around, taking in the local musician's at a restaurant down the street and buying a bag full of tasty pastries for about twenty-five cents. There are ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Villa Cuba Varadero
Villa cuba is good
the food wasn't the best but everything else was great
Value for your money
Villa Cuba is value for your money. We have just returned from our vacation and I am glad our travel agent had found us Villa Cuba. Nice and clean facilities and friendly staff made our stay very pleasant. The food was not bad at all, there was enough variety to enjoy. The animation staff was really working hard to engage the guests in activities and to make it fun for us. We had to see the doctor working at the resort for a skin infection and she was very helpful as well.
I feel to write a good review the reader should sort of know a little something about the person writing the review so here goes. I am a bit of a neat freak 26 year old single guy who isn't that picky when it comes to food but I do care about value. I'm not too concerned about resort activites/entertainment or facilities. I went down to Varadero with 5 friends for the beach and other off resort activities. Now the goods:
Having read several negative review about Villa Cuba, all I
Spend a bit more, stay somewhere else
My wife and I visited the Villa Cuba for 2 weeks in early February 2002. We found the staff to be friendly and polite but largely indifferent to us as customers. This seems to be a Cuban thing as we found this to be the case virtually everywhere we went in Cuba. The room was very nice, the housekeeping only "fair". The food was awful! My wife managed to pick-up an intestinal parasite that her Dr. advises was likely from poor hygiene on the part of the food handlers. It was my misfortune to get an ear infection that the hotel Dr. advised was likely from the pool. As a destination, Cuba has a long way to go to compete with Mexico and the other Caribbean destinations. If you do go to Cuba, spend a few extra dollars and stay in a better hotel.
DO NOT GO TO VILLA CUBA
Stay away from Villa Cuba, food was terrible, service was terrible, rooms had major mold patches.....
Had a wonderful time!
My mom and I went to Cuba for the first time last winter. My mom was very nervous about what our hotel would look it. As it turned out, the place was wonderful. Our first room was a little loud, but the staff had no problems moving us when another room was free. The staff was friendly and the food was alright for Cuba. You can't go away on a vacation there and expect to be eating at a 4 star restaurant every night. We both had a great time at the disco every night and enjoyed the days by the pool or on the beautiful beach. Overall, we had a wonderful time and would go back to Villa Cuba again.
Beware villa cuba nightmare!
We stayed at Villa Cuba for a week, from feb.17-24. We had the pleasure to find that we had a room in the villas (that were built in the 50-60). The room was so small and no counter space anywhere. First day the shower broke, the second day the toilet broke, by the third day the braker blew...., with our many problems we were daily callers at the reception. The staff was very rude and unprofessional pretty much all week except for a couple exceptions. Some nights the disco didn't even open... The food, well, good luck... We were very disapointed from the resort and the people. I've been to Cuba twice before (in Guardalacava) and had no problems at all and the staff and locals were much friendlier.
Horrible place stay away
Horrible food and service. Everything broken or unavaialble.
The staff don't care about you or your problems.
