Tryp Peninsula Varadero
Travel Blogs from Varadero
33miliii stayed here on Feb 25, 2007 during their trip titled: Hasta la victoria, siempre.
Yesterday, we drove from Trinidad to Santa Clara, the town which Che Guevara lead the takeover of during the revolution. We visited his mausoleum and monument. It was incredibly large and awesome in my opinion because it included his letter to Fidel which explained why he was leaving Cuba - to help other Latin American countries lead revolutions. Che was a cool guy and is revered all over Cuba.
There are also many posters of 5 men's faces that say "Volverán" ...
... Cuba is a really sleepy country; in fact so much so that I don’t think I’ve seen a car drive beyond ten miles an hour. Everybody drives around in classic cars from the 1950’s; I’d love to tell you the makes but I know nothing about cars, so the best I can do is tell you that there were purple ones, red ones and blue ones amongst many other colours. They look like the cars you get in Grand Theft Auto Vice City, if you’ve ever played that? Retro! They ...
... of wonderful Brazilians like we did. We had a couple of hours in the bus, so most of us slept for a little. However, knowing that these were my final hours in this unique country I stayed awake the whole time contently looking out the window. I began to try and make sense of my experience here in Cuba, and started to ask the questions of "What is the most important thing I want to tell people back home about Cuba?" ...
... home that exists, and then realize that it is impossible to conceptualize the masculinity that this home possessed.
After viewing the house, I ascended his writing tower to be hit in the face with one of the most beautiful views I have ever seen. There was very little civilization to be seen from the top of the tower, as it is surrounded by trees. I immediately felt the appeal of a writing ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Tryp Peninsula Varadero
We stayed at the Tryp Peninsula on the advice of our travel agent and couldn't have asked for a better place to be. We were there January 5-12, and it was a bit cool in the evenings, but what a fantastic resort! Everything was great - the beach, the beautiful pool, the lobby bar where we hung out on the one day it rained. The staff was excellent too - when we wanted to change rooms, it took less than an hour to get a better room! I would recommend anyone to go to this resort. We hope to make it back again someday soon. Don't forget to check out the nightly entertainment and the trip to Havana. Our tour guide on the Havana excursion was fantastic (word of advice - take your own T.P. on the trip. Bathrooms in Havana don't have any!)
Just returned from TRYP Peninsula Veradero and have read other reviews of the resort. Actually, it was other reviews which prompted us to go there in the first place so perhaps one should not place too much stock in them.
Go To This Hotel!
My 2 sisters and I (ages 22, 24, 27) stayed at this hotel Jan 1 - 7 2002...we had never been on an all-inclusive vacation...what a great first experience!!! The staff are hilarious, fun and friendly...we went out with them at night numerous times...the food was awesome, but I am not a picky eater...my sisters were getting bored of it towards the end. The snack bars are terrific and service is prompt. The beach was great, the pool was great and the activities were fun...it's all about your attitude...not as many young single people as we would have liked, but we met enough friends....all in all, an awesome time at a first class place...Oh, don't go over New Year's, if I have one complaint, it wasn't hot enough.
JANUARY 9 2003 " I SAY A HEY, A HA , A HA......."
I went to the TRYP last year with a group of about 30 college coeds. We had a great time.
The beach was great, the resort was fantastic.
The night life at the resort left a little to be desired, but the staff was more than willing to take us out on the town when they had nights off.
I don't think anyone that went with us had a bad time. I'll defenetly be back.
My husband and I stayed at the Tryp Peninsula in September 2002 for two blissful weeks.
we, my wife, two sons and myself (from Belgium) had something we will never forget : on the date of 15/07/2001 we had the honnour to officialy open the above hotel (in fact our son of 5 years cut the ribbon and thereby declared the hotel open). It was amazing : our family, together with 6 other people were all alone in the resort. We could choose our rooms, everything was brandnew. The staff was so glad to see tourists at last.
We just got back from the Tryp a few weeks ago. The beach is beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!! The resort was spectacular! The rooms were clean…and comfortable. . The pool is nice with a good Snack bar. We had no problems with water..bottled water was provided. The staff and service was satisfactory but if you tip the service is excellent. Breakfast was always good….. dinner and lunch was o.k. if you’re not a picky eater. It’s the wrong place if you are single and looking for night life. It’s a good place for family and couples to relax very romantic in the evenings. Make sure you bring Tylenol’s, Peptobis-mol etc. Our last day there ..I had stomach problems and needed Peptobis-mol or anything with bismuth subsalicylate. The gift shop was useless. There was a doctor at the resort, but she could barely speak English. She had no medication, she wrote a $ 85.00 prescription for drug I never heard off. We rented a scooter, went to the pharmacy and explained the situation. She was able to find us tablets similar to Peptobis-mol for $35 no selection. Other from that, it was a good vacation and it was worth staying at the Tryp. The day we were leaving our maid wrote us a letter wishing us luck and left flowers in the room. I would definitely go back again.
We visited the TRYP Peninsula from April 19-26, 2002. An amazing vacation. Beautiful, clean accomodations, amazing staff, great pools and a pretty nice beach.
TRYP Penninsula Resort
Tryp Penninsula....January 2002...one of the coldest Januarys Cuba has ever been in.
A beautyful Resort...cannot say anything will be disappointing. The best place to stay if you really want Rest and Relaxation. There is a man who works on the beach at Resort who really loves Canadian Flags. (Take him one as I'm not sure that he got ours as we left it with some people from Alberta instead of the travel agent from Ontario.)
The trip to Havana is a must for sure!
The rooms are better than excellent! The pool excellent (but cold in January 2002). The entertainment crew are either overworked and tired or a tad bit stuckup or shy...not sure but the serving crew in Buffet are friendly.
