Vacationed at this resort from April 10-17, 2012. This is my second trip to Varedero. I found this resort to be clean, with many pools, a beautiful beach with plenty of chaises available (no need to reserve one). The staff at the spa and hair salon were wonderful and very professional. The Lobby Bar staff were expedient and friendly. Arianna served wonderful Tequila Shots!!!! and the Best Spanish Coffee. This is a large facility and prone to the hazards of many guests. Book your A-la-Carte Reservations prior to arriving at the Hotel, get confirmation by email, as we were only able to book 2 a-la cartes reservations at the hotel. The restaurants were booked and we had limited availability. Bring facecloths, there seems to be a shortage of these. Bring your own Beach Towel as the daily availability is limited. There seems to be an issue with laundry service as fresh towels were not readily aviliable. The Japanese and Steakhouse/Seafood a la cartes were wonderful ! (the only 2 reservations we could get). There was a large selection at the Buffet and something for every palate - no issue here. If you enjoy morning coffee - do not get it at the Buffet as it is very bad,bad,bad. As I mentionned earlier the Lobby Bar has the best coffees. The pianist and musicians in the Lounge were great!!!. The nightly entertainment was very good as was the disco. The food is typical cuban fare, the pork is amazing as is the fish, lots of veggies to choose from and salad fixings too, The Best however are the breads and rolls, they are absolutely divine!!!! (I am not a typical bread eater). The house white and red wines are mediocre. The ice cream bar was definitely a bonus at this resort as was the cigar lounge.
