The price quality is really good at this place. Personnel is really friendly and food an drinks are very delicious as well. Please note this is for Cuban standards. Downside is that the beach is relatively short. Also the wifi isn't for free here. Hopefully you don't mind Canadians.

Although the beaches, weather and water was awesome, we were not impressed with this run-down hotel. The food was ok - we didn't go home starving, but it would be nice to see some labels on what they were actually serving at the buffet. My husband isn't a fan of seafood, and there was lots of it and it appeared...

Staff except for the ladies who served me all week at breakfast (Yamilex Barrera Rolo and Maite) and the lady taking the reservations for the à la carte restaurants, weren't friendly nor smiling at all. The pond in front of the Italian restaurant was disgusting. Every morning and afternoon I sat on the chairs in front of the Lobby Bar...

First time to Cuba and we loved every minute of it. Beautiful beaches and wonderful people. There was so much to do for us adults and our 2 kids who are 16 and 11. I would recommend bringing bug spray for the mosquitoes at night and a bigger travel mug for the yummy drinks. Great staff at this hotel. We...

My wife and I love Cuba and this is our second time being there, which means that we already know what to expect. But being in Playa Alameda made us raise the limit up. We believe that all this is because of the very professional management. When I first met the Manager, I thought he is young and probably not...

Cuba was a great experience for us, Havana was amazing, all that changed the moment we stepped into this hotel in Varadero. Firstly the rooms will only be available after 4 pm for checkin, which is fine. We finally got to our room, and you were immediately hit by a moldy stench. Things were broken, like tiles on the floor,...
