First of all, and with no disrespect, accept you're in Cuba so there are a couple of shortfalls. Hotel is in great position on the edge of town and handy for the open-top bus tour (also recommend this - 5 cucs, hop-on hop-off all day, 2 hour tour of the Area). Set in nice, well-tended gardens through which a very...

Every trip and resort has some pros and cons. When we arrived after midnight it took about 1/2 hour to get checked in as there was only one girl on the front desk. We got to our room but there were no beach towels or 2 bottles of water as we had Roc Plus and that was part of the...

We have been to some pretty shady places in Varadero and Mexico. Normally don't complain but this will be the exception. We booked our vacation through our credit card company, and it was put on by Sunwing. Red eye flight, arrived at our destination at 3am. Upon check in I asked if the room had a King bed, the receptionist...

This is our second time to the ROC Barlovento and we brought friends who were going to Varadero for the first time. We had a great time. We absolutely love the location, so close to everything.
