Managed to flea from snow covered Gatwick with only a 3 hour delay. Landed in Varadero at sunset...and were faced by a sea of coaches...welcome to package tour land! We were whisked onto a Thomas Cook bus where a lovely Cuban hostess apologised as she couldn't locate our welcome envelope...not knowing that we hadn't actually booked a package and …

Sexy Beach at Varadero

Cara y Alan,

Our time here in Cuba is going so quickly! It's hard to believe that we will be back in Mexico next week.

After Playa Larga we decided to go to Varadero – the "Miami Beach" of Cuba. I don’t know quite what I expected, but I certainly did not expect what I found.

Varadero is a thin strip of land that is home to perhaps one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and arguably ...

... herbs-everything perfectly preserved as it was on the day the pharmacy closed in 1964.

Santeria, the African-influenced religion that is practiced in Cuba both along with and in addition to Christianity, is based on the worship of an array of different African gods and is most vibrant in Matanzas. In order to enhance our understanding of Santeria, we were treated to an Afro-Cuban dance presentation including Yoruba and Bantu dances, followed by ...

... and cheers. As the revolution was 65 years ago, I was surprised by her militancy.

Then the party began. We were offered plates of food and drinks from a table laden with fresh fruit, tea sandwiches, bottles of liquor and cans of beer and soft drinks and an enormous cake decorated as the Cuban flag. These Cubans were a match for any Jewish mother; it was all I could do from being force-fed.

... bus station, said hello to a local wearing a nice Montreal Canadians t-shirt, and then tried to find our bus. We followed the crowd of people and tried to buy a ticket with the locals, but were promptly directed towards the tourist bus. Our comfy waiting area was air conditioned with nicer seating, as was our bus that cost $10 for a three hour ride. Most of the ride was on two lane roads, having to stop once to allow a cow to cross. It was nice to see ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Iberostar Varadero

    Overall a good experience

    from

    Just spent a week and the Iberostar Varadero. I was pleasantly surprised considering this resort was only opened for 2 months prior. This resort is about 25 minutes away from the airport. And check-in was smooth and quick as we were the only ones from our bus that had booked the Iberostar Varadero. The front desk staff were good to deal with, and effectively communicated where things were located around the resort. The bell staff were also great and provided even more info on what is going on at the resort. We had a great room in building 10 on the 3rd floor that faced the trees at the front of the resort. Building 10 is really close to the lobby, disco, and pool. The room is typical of a resort of this level (ie. tile, and marble). They did not have a dresser so we just keeped things in our suitcases and hung shirts and pants in the closet. The air conditioner did not initially work, but after a service call, we had an attendant come in 15 minutes and correct the problem. Unfortunately, we then couldn't turn the air conditioner off. But better to have that problem than a hot, humid room. Maid service was good. Always had a sculpture or two awaiting us. The fridge was stocked with both Cristal & Bucanero beer, tonic water, carbonated water, and mineral water, and an assortment of Cuban soft drinks. Our fridge was never fully stocked but we consistently had a 2 litre bottle of water replenished.

    An excellent place in Cuba!!!

    We really had a great time with our children. The mini club is the best our kids have ever been to. The staff is really friendly. That's a 5 stars indeed!!!

    Lobster ? What lobster ?

    We stayed at Iberostar Varadero february 6 to 20...While we were there the beach bar and beach snack opened. Gardeners were working like crazy planting shrubs and trees to embellish the grounds. Potted plants and trees were coming in everyday for Lobby , theatre , lobby bar and pathway leading to Buffet.No turf yet around blocks 17, 16,15,14,13 and 12.

    I had a great experience there

    Looking at the discussion board, I know that many have vested interest in hearing about reviews from this new hotel...

    Loved the Iberastar Varadero

    from

    Obviously, some folks go on vacation looking for only the worst aspects of any location, and not appreciating the best!! We, too, spent 2 weeks at the new IB Varadero at the beginning of January and came home from one of our best vacations ever. Yes, there is some work to be done, but we knew that before we left home. It stated quite clearly that this was a new resort and that all facilities may not be completed. We also paid about 60% of what we would have paid for a 5 star resort somewhere else!! We found the rooms lovely, the food well varied and delicious, the staff friendly and anxious to be helpful. The entertainment enjoyable- if you want a Vegas review go to Las Vegas! The people who put on the evening entertainmant report for work at 8-8:30 AM and put in a full day with guest activities and most days don't leave until 11:30 at night! And they work a 6 day work week- And they get paid approximately 20 Conv. Cuban Pesos($20 USD) per month!!! The landscaping that is being completed is in no way intrusive to the activities we so thoroughly enjoyed. As always, it's very much easier to find fault than give credit.

    Iberostar Varadero

    Not up to par!

    from

    Hotel opened on December 22, 2004. Should not have done! The hotel is nowhere near finished, with only 60% of the rooms open, and the grounds not fully landscaped (no grass and a lot of mud/sand) They should hawaited until February to open properly at 100%.
