Awful from start to finish A review of Barcelo Varadero

First of all, we waited 2 hours for our room to be ready - just had to sit round reception, despite having a check in time of 2pm - it was not ready. Our apt was at the furthest point from reception, and there was no one to help me and my 50 something mother with our luggage, so we had to cart it ourselves through the rows of sunbeds.

The apt was tatty, the wardrobe STANK of mould, the pillows and blankets that were in there did too. The beds were awful, rock hard, there was only CNN in English on the TV, and there was also no kettle ?

The food was SHOCKING, breakfast not so bad, but do not attempt dinner, it was revolting. We went all-inclusive and ate out every night after the first - at good quality restuarants.

Didn't sample the entertainment, couldn't stomach it after the rest of the experience. This accomodation is no better than 2 Star allocation on arrival package holiday places. Have stayedin other barcello hotels and this one does not compare.
