This is my third visit to Hostal Rocco. It is always pleasant to come back. Excellent service and customer service. Rooms are clean and modern. They are equipped with mini bar, tv, closet and desk. They have a nice breakfast selection and prepare at the moment. I love their espresso. I will come back and definitely will recommend to friends and family.

I visited Varadero for first time with my wife and friends. After long traveling in Cuba I have to say that in Rocco haus I was first time in Cuba when we ate something really good. Rocco prepared very good pasta and lobster for us. Very friendly staff and they helped us with advice and traveling. Thank you once again Rocco.

This is my second visit to this wonderful place and "guess what" this place is getting better. This time I found new amenities in the rooms, they even decor the towels on top of the beds. Many hotels completely forgot about it. They have a breath taken croissant and Cuban coffee for breakfast prepared for one of the owners"Jandy" she is sweet,nice and very kind. Rocco is a wonderful cook. I even had a pasta with home made Italian pesto, are you kidding me? I'm Cuba. This place welcomes you as family and makes you fell as such. I highly recommend it and I can't wait to visit them again. Thanks once more Jandy and Rocco " hasta la vista"

Oh how beautiful the city of Varadero was.Rocco and his wife welcomed us with open arms and plenty of laughs. First off, our rooms were immaculate and the view was very relaxing. The property itself is great for lunging. Rocco drove us around and made great restaurant recommendations. In the mornings his wife made us a breakfast spread fir for a royal family. Rocco's hotel is near the beach, restaurants and many tourist attractions. Go for it!

Much has been said and I fully endorse the rich complements. We were 2 couples arriving January 20th after a long flight and to say we settled in with immediate effect is an understatement. The place was spotlessly clean and the rooms were the same with great attention to comfort. Hany was the perfect hostess, helpful and always on call. We ate in the first night (and wished we had done the same the 2nd night, I have to say). Rocco did a fabulous Italian meal and Hany and her glamorous assistant made sure the wine and beer flowed. They had guests round and inspite of a language barrier each one was kind and very courteous towards us. Sleeping was no bother as it was very quiet outside and the bed was very comfortable indeed to compliment the vision of the soft furnishings. Come morning - breakfast was exceedingly plentyful. A great variety of tasty food to mull over, until Rocco did the honours with the Ferrari (his words) and took us to the beach. Much the same on day 2. Nothing was too much trouble for Hany and Rocco and we departed after many hugs and kisses hoping the remaining 5 Hostels/Cassa's would challenge Hostel Rocco. Maybe another one came close.

We just got back from Cuba today and spent two nights with Rocco and his wonderful wife. They couldn't have been nicer and more helpful and treated us like family. They served a wonderful breakfast with eggs, coffee, juices, fresh fruit and one day we even got some crepes with it. They serve the breakfast on a pretty patio on the side of the house where you can meet the other travelers. They have three rooms available. The room we stayed in was very clean and nice and everything was new. There was a refrigerator, flat screen tv, nice bathroom with a hair dryer and a wall safe. The water was nice and hot too when you took a shower. And, the beds were comfortable which is not the case in some of the other places we stayed in. They use really nice cotton sheets on the bed too! The only issue is that they are a bit far from the beach so you need to take taxis. It is about a 10 minute ride so not too bad but you should know that before you go. Rocco was very helpful and gave us a lift in his car several times when we went out to dinner or to the beach. We really enjoyed staying with them!

We are a family of 5 who stayed at Hostal Rocco, which is really a 5 star hotel! We loved the area, very calm and peaceful. The room was very nice, clean and organized, take it from someone who has done some traveling. The place is very well taken care of and loved. The owners take pride in giving a quality place to stay. We enjoyed our breakfasts outdoors, and the food was very delicious! I highly recommend this place, you will not be disappointed! Greetings to Rocco and Jandy, a very nice and attentive couple!

I've been in kuba for 14 days with a friend. For two nights we stayed at roccos hostal. I think you shouldn't call it 'hostal', because its more like a hotel. The rooms are very clean and the food is delicious. You have to try his spaghetti! He and his family are very helpfull and hospitable. You can ask him everything (german, english, spanish). He drove us to the city several times either. It was the best hostal in kuba and if I go to Kuba again I will spend more time at roccos hostal!

No Hotels in Cuba can match Hostal Roccos food, the rooms and gardens are beautiful, and the service is excellent! I would not call it a casa or hostel but a five star hotel! Rocco offers room service, new towels and bed linen everyday, they Even folded our clothes, i have never seen similar and i have travelled alot.
