Couples (1) Family (1)
2 out of 5
Not what I expected for a 4 star All-Inclusive Hotel in Varadero. I had to be changed rooms because the 1st one was Full of Mold Room# 5107. I was changed to Room #5219 and the TV and Remote did not work, our room wass full of dust and the Sheets and Blanket smelled like dirt and dust and on the closet floor. I went to the Reveption Multiple times to get a replacement and they had none available. The cleaning lady finally the next day sais she would.have theme washed and a Lie all she did was fold them and put them on top of the couch. Thankfully I was there for 2 days Only for my Honeymoon. The staff was very Nice. The food was Not all that good almost the same stuff all the time and not alot of options. I would say take your money somewhere else. Its too expensive for poor quality and service. I will Not be Returning to this Hotel. They did give us a Bottle of Rum and Late checkout for our Honeymoon but that was all. Overal I am.not very Happy but it is what it is. The people are very nice and the Beach is Beautiful
