Have been to Starfish Cuatro Palmas 2 times, once in December 2018 and another in February 2020 (had to select May 2020 in order to submit this review). So far this resort is my FAVORITE in Cuba. Enjoy the proximity of the property to the nightlife, wonderful and kind staff, wonder food, perfect size, warm and comforting property, feels like home, I will be back once the pandemic is under control and we are able to travel again. Food at this resort is by far the best food I have had in Cuba to date.

It is a small and nice resort. We stayed in the Colonial area, very quiet and pleasant. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Magdalena was our maid, she was lovely! The hotel areas were always clean. All staff were super friendly and professional. Very good food. We are very happy with the experience and we will surely return! We recommend it!

I visited this hotel in January 2020. The room was on the other side of the street in some modules that have also functioned as Las Palmas hotel. Simple and not very large room with essential amenities. The use of the facilities is in the 4 palms part of the hotel. The beach area spotless, with enough sunbeds and umbrellas. A small bar closer to that area serves drinks of less complexity and beer. The pleasant buffet restaurant is air-conditioned and does not retain odors from the dishes served. The bar at the end of the portals and overlooking the beach is very nice. It was under repair so it did not have air conditioning as before, but the temperature was not high outside. One day it was a rock band, which played classical songs and the animation was very good. I found the overall hotel atmosphere pleasant and the lobby bar space is welcoming both during the day and at night.

Been to Cuatro Palmas in 2019 and loved it. Varadero, probably 9 times. Just booked the Cuatro again, for Nov 7th 2020. Cross my fingers, full planes will be heading to Varadero. Follow the rules and enjoy sunshine and Cuban culture. Great location, clean resort with super friendly staff.

This place is a gem!!! Nice little resort close to the downtown. Lots of markets close by, as well as the Calle 62 and Beatles Bar. The resort is fairly well kept, the rooms are a bit dated, but nicer than the other rooms that I have stayed in at other resorts. The staff are great, friendly and helpful. The staff make you feel like you are family, it is like going to the cottage with family more than staying at a resort. The pool and beach are lovely, food is good and the A la Cart restaurants are great!!!! I highly recommend this resort

Dear guest, On behalf of Starfish Cuatro Palmas staff, we would like to thank you for providing part of your time to share a review of your stay with us. We are glad to know you liked our little but fairly well-kept resort, close to the downtown, with its rooms nicer than the other rooms that you have stayed in at other resorts. It is our pleasure to know you enjoyed the lovely pool and beach, the good food, and the great A la Carte restaurants. Moreover, we are more than happy to know our staff was great, friendly, helpful, making you feel like you are family, like going to the cottage with family more than staying at a resort. However, we regret to know we could not reach your expectations because your room was a bit dated, but we already made some renovations. As we are continually improving, we will take your insight with a profound sense of responsibility to improve that, and address it properly. We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you back. Thank you for choosing us. Best regards, General Manager
