Looks as good as new after Irma. Most areas have been repaired. It’s been cleared and the water is as gorgeous as ever. Beautiful sunrises and rainbows.

Great holiday. Food not so great in most places and very ‘samey’ everywhere you go. People were great and our hotel Ocean Vista Azul was fab.

Beautiful white sand , crystal clear water and nice (Ice) cold mojitos. Went in March and going back to relax on the beach in January. I have been to Mexico and Punta Cana but nothing compares to Varadero Beach!

Must do if you like beaches, but watch your stuff, do leave it unattended. My water shoes and beach towel went missing and I was in the water 5 minutes.
