      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Villa Cuba Varadero

      Villa cuba is good

      from

      the food wasn't the best but everything else was great

      Value for your money

      from

      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.

      Villa Cuba....the real deal

      from

      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:

      -beach was excellent!

      -rooms were clean and there was plenty of water pressure for warm to hot showers

      -food was okay...they definately like rare meats

      -there was also lots to do off the resort (rent cars, rent mopeds, snorkeling tours, walk to the city of Varadero, tour Havana). We always felt safe off the resort.

      -I found most of the staff was quite crabby (unless they were tipped of course)

      -Activity staff however were friendly and outgoing.

      -their disco was dead

      -Every night the activity staff would gather anyone interested to go out to a busy club for a $10 U.S fee plus transportation (all inclusive once you got there but some places were so busy you couldn't get anything or had to pay to use the bathroom!)

      -We all agreed that we paid quite a bit of money down there for a poor country. People will try to hustle and grind you for anything

      To sum things up....Villa Cuba is fine. There is good and bad to Cuba no matter where you go. I do advise to got to at least a 4 star resort.

      Some people are just never happy

      from

      Having read several negative review about Villa Cuba, all I

      can say is quitcherbitchin.

      Great staff, great drinks, clean rooms and average bland food - so the latter aspect should make the Brits (of which I am one) feel quite at home!!

      A problem with the shower in one of our rooms was attended to within 20 minutes of our call to the front desk. It took them an hour to fix it, but at least it was done properly.

      About the only problem I had with the stay was the quality of the wine served which fell under the general terminology of Plonk.

      A tip to the people who felt that they had been jerked around by staff. Smile and treat them like equals. Introduce yourself and over them some small treats- we took along bar soap, crayons, disposable razors, toothpaste,

      toothbrushes etc. The whole bag of goodies cost us $25.00 Canadian and this little bit of good cheer got us a great deal of mileage in both Villa Cuba and our other stop., the Hotel Nacional in Havana.

      Cheers

      David D.

      Spend a bit more, stay somewhere else

      from

      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

      from

      Stay away from Villa Cuba, food was terrible, service was terrible, rooms had major mold patches.....

      Had a wonderful time!

      from

      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!

      from

      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

      from

      Horrible food and service. Everything broken or unavaialble.

      The staff don't care about you or your problems.

      Stay Away.

      Pretty good by Cuban standards (which are low)

      from

      Stayed at Villa Cuba for two weeks in Dec. 2001.

      Thought the facility was very nice, one of the best spots on one of the most magnificent beaches in the world. Friendly and helpful "entertainment team" double up as the evening entertainment providing dancing/singing and skits(sic). Anyone going to Cuba should realize that the food is not great anywhere in the country. Cubans get little meat in their diet so their idea of delux is to trot out piles and piles of (usually stewed) meat. The veggies are not up to North American or European standards; vegitarians beware! I met a number of people who were very dissatisfied with the food at Villa Cuba, but them again I met dozens of others from 4 and 5 star resorts with the same complaints. The message is: don't go to Cuba for a gastronomical experience.

Everywhere you travel in this amazing country, Che Guevaras face looks at you, from house walls, T.shirts and monuments such is the presence of the man.

After the first 2 weeks at The Memories I wrote a glowing report and when I went back the following week I was told I could have any room I choose, plus I got other perks. For some people the perks are more important then the animals, thus the coverup continues, There are so many nice kind seniors who will go nowhere near these countries because of what happens to the animals.

      ... Canadians and some were European and Latin American. They were very friendly and very entertaining. I never felt alone all those times I was there. No matter where I go, there was always a person or two willing to talk. While I was wondering around the resort, I was also taking pictures of all the things I have seen. 1 pm arrived, everyone made their way to the restaurant for lunch. I looked around to see what they have, I was pleasantly surprised. Very decent food but the ...

      Matanzas, Varadero, Caves and Snake Oil

      ... in the morning, this stopover was appropriate.

      From Matanzas it was a short distance through some back-alleys to Cuevas de Bellamar, a labyrinth of beautiful caves that are billed as Cuba’s oldest tourist attraction. I recall my mom saying she used to go there with my dad.

      Exploring the caves required A LOT of walking, some of it a bit precarious, and most everyone bumped their heads at one point or another. I was impressed ...
