Dupont House a must see learning the interesting historical fact's about Cuba ! Learning about how Varadero was both past & present day ! Such an amazing view from the upper floors of such a beautiful well constructed building ! Beautiful golf clubhouse to accent the Dupont house on the hill ! Unbelievable 360 view of Varadero & the ocean & sea !

We started with drinks on the rooftop terrace which were good. Then went down to the restaurant and had a beautiful table overlooking the sea - stunning view. We actually ended up going twice in 3 days and had the set menu both times (bread, starter, soup, and main for 35 pesos which was very good value for where you are). The soups are irrelevant, too salty and don't add anything to the meal). The starters were all good - our favourite was the salmon carpaccio. The mains - we had both the lobster and the steak and the lobster was the better of the two, but both were good, It is worth going to as it is the best place we found in Varadero.

This is the only golf course in Cuba and it is a fun course to play.Not a lot of elevation changes but enough to make it fun.

Dear Golfer,
Thank you very much for your comments about the fun course!
This is the only 18 holes 72 par golf course in Cuba, but there is another 9 holes golf course in Havana.
We are looking forward to your next round!

Always love coming to Xanadu (The DuPont Mansion) to watch the sunset. The view from the bar on the third floor is amazing, great place to step back in time and enjoy a cigar and mojito.

there is no doubt this is a beautiful old mansion and the service is beyond good ! The meal was 4 courses all fine. Chateau briand with a lovely sauce, dinner however cost us $387 CUC ! That's like $435 Cdn ! we ve ate a number of restaurants in Varadero none ever cost like this one!! A SMALL glass of wine in the bar upstairs is 7 C UC ! that like $9 Cdn...come on it s Cuba....I've never spent that at the Keg! Way over priced for what it is and maybe a coincidence but I was sick for 7 days after that meal. Yes of course I drank and ate t o much all week and probably that's why I w as sick ...........BUT I won't be trying this again!!

You are right! This restaurant with ocean view is different from others in Varadero and some rates could be higher, but there are some cheaper choices in the menu.
You are right! It should be a coincidence that you were sick for 7 days after that meal beacause you drank and ate too much all week and probably that's why you were sick.
We are looking forward to your next visit!
