TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Horizontes Herradura Varadero
Hotel Herradura is a run down, charming, eclectic, funky, unpretentious soviet style hotel on the Cuba side of Varadero. it has lots of warts, but a lovely staff and the most fantastic stretch of beach right outside. We loved it, even though our door knob fell off.
