I stayed at the Roc Barlevento from April 8-15, and it was amazing! First of all, my check in was 4 pm, and I arrived at 10 am. The desk clerk noticed that I was pretty tired and did her best to have the room ready earlier, which was nice. I had mentioned that my mother and sister would be...

Remembering that Cuba is NOT up to North American standards, I was quite pleased with Barlovento. It's older, as most are, but reasonably well updated. Many rooms are updated/renovated as well. I didn't have one, so can't comment. Our older room was just fine. I was particularly happy to see that all the rooms at Barlovento are 110 volt electrical...

I will start with the bad and end with the good. First of all this was our 2nd trip to this resort. The food was worse this year, I always find something to eat, but this year it was difficult. The food on the buffet was always cold, no matter how soon it came out. I have never seen wieners...

We stayed from April 8-18, 2017 and this was our second visit to this resort. Big improvements over last year. The resort was clean, food was very good at the buffet, new air conditioning in the buffet was a nice improvement and the management were continuously monitoring the food at each sitting. The room was clean and well looked after....

The rooms at this hotel could use some upgrades as do the bathtub fixtures, but they worked. The water was warm and the room was clean. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

This was my 3rd time staying at Barlovento. I like to stay in this area of Varadero. You are able to walk into the centre easily as well as cross the bridge and grab a taxi to other areas of Cuba. Our Cuban friends can easily visit us on the public beach beside the resort. There are good restaurants nearby...

This was my first and most likely last all-inclusive holiday. I visited with a friend who's not an experienced traveller, so this seemed like a good option.
