This is my second time to Varadero and I decided to stay at this resort because I wanted a Villa where it would be quieter than in the hotel part itself. I was very lucky! It was quiet and the people sharing the villa were also respectful. I had #3360 on the second floor near the beach. Yes, the furniture was very old in the room but the room was clean and the bathroom was huge with a bathtub and 2 sinks. There was also a huge common living room downstairs. The only negative was the garbage bins that were across from me. They stunk by mid-week and needed to be emptied. The hotel is rated as a 3.5/4 star which probably isn't true, but you have to understand that this is Cuba. The hotels are older, but I thought in general was clean. Don't compare it to Mexico or other areas. There were a lot of Canadians at this resort and it felt like family. We always stopped to talk to each other and made plans to meet up in the evening to go downtown which is only a 15-minute walk. Varadero is very safe and we never had any problems. I have read comments about the staff not being friendly. Maybe they don't smile all the time, but you have to understand the hours that the servers are on their feet. Secondly, there are some very rude guests that aren't nice to the staff. It's Cuba and the food isn't great, but the a la Carte restaurants were. I always found something that I could eat. One negative is the entertainment by the pool. During the afternoon, it was very loud. I really don't care about a dance competition between girls from different countries. And the smell of sewage on windy days near the pool wasn't so great either. Don't get a room facing the pool area if you want quiet because you won't get it. But I would have to say that I went to Cuba for the best beach and to meet people and have fun in a safe country and that's what I got. Sorry to those whose rooms weren't renovated, etc. I wouldn't be happy either, but the front desk always tried to find you another one if you weren't satisfied. I would stay here again!!
The strong points Villa was quiet, big and near the beach. Some have private pools. Lots of friendly Canadians. Close to downtown. 9th floor bar with a view of beach Best coffee bar Nice beach 15-minute walk to downtown Friendly staff The weak points Sewage smell near one side of pool area, but the other side was okay. Food was the same every day.

I think there should of been 4 burners to make the crepes so it wouldn't take so long. The jacuzzi didn't work and a warm pool would of been nice. The converting money was to expensive.The coffee, juices, fruit was wonderful. I had seen 2 cockroaches at the crepe station and told the girl and she killed them. The staff was absolutely wonderful. Some railings need to be tightened.
The strong points Staff was wonderful The weak points Communication when bus was late for pick-up to airport.

“Never going back to this hotel”
This is not a 4* hotel,not even 3*. The public washrooms dirty and stinky sometimes even closed due to the dirtiness. The snacks not good at all, the tables at the buffet sometimes not clean they don't give a good service, if we needed something we had to get it our own ex. drinks or cutlery at the bar often run out of beer. Our room was ok exept for a broken bed. The hallway dark we had to use the light of our cell phone to get to our room. It was hard to make reservations for a la carte restaurants. I wouldn't recomend this hotel to anybody.
The strong points varadero in general is a nice place to visit. The weak points Hotel villa cuba

“This an 2 star, nowhere near 4 star!!!!!!!!!!!!”
I want this review to be long and dragged out...My flight was 3hrs late and lost my luggage to start the tip off right... Got to the resort at 140am and the customer service desk folded a piece of paper and wrote my room # on it and gave it to me, I had to find the villa in the dark due to the resort not being lit up. When i entered room all furniture was moved away from the wall and smelled like Sulphur and bug spray, the air conditioner radiator was loud and when i got in the bed the springs were pushing into me and NO WARM WATER. I asked in the morning to change rooms only to have her roll her eyes but did change the room to one in the hotel. I asked if i could get an internet card(1hr/5pesos) but customer service explained i should check back in 3days when they would most likely have cards, when i did get one i couldn't connect, the searching kept spinning so i closed my laptop and came back, when i did the site asked for my password again due to the card timing out. I went back to customer service and the woman stated ' If you couldn't connect you have to put 188.8.131.52 like the paper says at the end of the counter and this is your fault and not sure you sold you the card", i told her it was herself who sold it to me and she did not alert me to this notice, she said " well it was on the counter and i should have seen it".( to give you an idea the place she gave me the card and the notice are about 25ft apart) her and the other two girls sitting behind the desk spoke for 10mins before giving me another letting me know that the cost was coming out of her pocket and she doesn't make a lot.I felt ill thinking i was taking food from her family but she kept pushing telling me it was her fault for not letting me know and to go. SMH, I feel bad as i write thinking i may have taken money from her. It is widely known that Cuba has bland/boring food but i found both restaurants to be decent although the buffet was bland there was variety and plenty. The beach and location is great, and the excursions were wonderful, but NOWHERE AT ANYTIME NO WARM WATER NEVER MIND HOT. This hotel was rated 4 stars, but this hotel should be re-evaluated to a 2star.
The strong points LOCATION, BEACH, AND EXCURSIONS. The weak points NO WARM WATER, POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE, VERY LITTLE ACTIVITIES, THIS PLACE IS FOR SENIORS. SMOKING EVERYWHERE ALL THE TIME.
