Don't go there is nothing on the island but hotels, no people live there and it takes 2 hours to get cuba by bus through trips (that are really expensive) and you have to fly to Havana cost £180.00 each for basic trip just for the day. Only cows live on the island you are trapped.

Cayo Coco review

"Worst experience ever"

Horrible, horrible, horrible. My partner and I went in June 2008, he's been before but it was my first time and it was supposed to be a dream holiday. It turned out to be very far from it.

We were extremely isolated and when we tried to venture out somewhere else, the hotel staff lied to us about what was available-there was nothing as it was all closed as we later found out and it cost me 80 cuc(around 70 euros)

We were woken up at 5am every morning by the mosquito spraying and when we questioned it the staff were rude and didn't care. The food wasn't very hygienically kept-containers open to birds, insects and cats, never fresh, same with the pool bar. I contracted food poisoning after a few days. The pool wasnt cleaned once in the 2 weeks we were there and as a result this made both my partner and I ill. We had to later seek medical treatment whilst we were in Havana on a trip.

We booked 3 trips with the reps and were ripped off, they cost a lot of money and weren't even worth half of what we paid for them.

On the whole the best part of the holiday was when we went home, so many problems and both thomas cook and the hotel staff couldn't of cared less. We are still battling with thomas cook now-9 months later for compensation. I wouldn't ever recommend this hotel or thomas cook themselves. I can't paste the complaint letter we put into thomas cook as it was 9 pages long and there's not enough room on here.

As I said at the beginning this was supposed to be a dream holiday and it turned out to be one from the depths of despair.

suitable for beach lovers only , I was told it woud have been dangerous to go exploring on my own outside the exclosed resort itself. not what I expected as I wanted to go looking around on my own time. I felt pretty trapped after a week.

i havent made it due to hotel closure and change of flights. I can't tell you what I don't know. I simply want to warn travellers to get in touch with their tour operator to avoid disappointment like me.

Varaderon and Havana -Cuba is like the soviet union was in the 1970's (i know cos i was there then) little to do apart from rip off tourist trips because it simpy isnt safe to go out of these areas - got my wallet lifted from my bum bag for gods sake that takes some doing and skilled pickpocketing! Half of the tourist area like bomb wreck or condemend housing sites. If an animal lover you will be sickened by the sight of the dogs cats in havana and varadero bags of bones no fur covered in sores etc!!! Lots of lovelly firendly locals to help you & sell you things whilst pick pocketing you!!

"NOTHING SPECIAL"

Did not really see much of the resort as this was an all inclusive package therefore the majority of the time was spent in the hotel (unfortunately). Would recommend the Jeep Safari tour but avoid Havana - dirty and full of beggars not the busy vibrant cosmpolitian city it is marketed as.

Varadero review

"Paradise for thieves"

80%
of reviewers would recommend this
resort to a friend

Open quote

A paradise on both sides of the spectrum. A nice open planned resort and on the other side as with most places where control is limited, thieves galor. After realising that our room was burggled and got the resort security to investigate , his opening words of re-assurance to us was "In Cuba if someone who works in the hotel industry gets caught thieving they are not permitted to work in the industry for 4 years so I know that none of the staff here would do such a thing." Now how does that make you feel? How much effort do you think the resort security put into the investigation especially when they did not report the incident to the police (which apparently they are supposed to)? The response? They resort staff did not do it. We then contacted the director of the resort who told us that even though we had seen 99% of the looted items in the actual resort, that because we had transferred from a hotel in Havana a few days earlier and that the rate of theft is higher there, we did not see these items in the resort as they got robbed in Havana. Believe you me I am fluent in Spanish and English so no language barrier there. Think of your safety and security of belongings and do not stay there.

Varadero review

"Greedy for money"

80%
of reviewers would recommend this
resort to a friend

Open quote

A very up-market resort which currently still looks like a building site on some parts. No beach bar, beach huts/brollies still being errected. Staff training a majoy issue.

Cocktails where shocking. A Coco loco varied from white in colour on one occassion to yelow (pineapple) the next the pink the following time. The same applied with the mojito no sugar one minute to no mint leaves the next. Noisy in the corridors linking the rooms.

Food wise, made for the greedy population. All mass produced, bland, no consistency, vegetarian food in the buffet had meat in them on more than one occassion. The Italian speciality restaruant was the first time I've acctually left a restaurant in the middle of the service/meal without leaving a tip.

Shame though as the beach and apearance of the resort is absolutely brilliant.

My reason for calling this section greedy for money is because my feeling is that the Iberostar franchise/company have rushed to open another resort on a the most popular beach front within Cuba for the extra money despite it not being ready.

Falmouth review

"Didn't dare get out of the taxi"

68%
of reviewers would recommend this
resort to a friend

Open quote

All in all, this is a facility which is in dire need of a management shake-up and long overdue for a refurb. How the travel companies can rate it as a 3-4* property is beyond me - its 2* at most!

We went to Falmouth but didn't dare get out of the car. The place was crawling with police who were obviously there for a reason. We felt very uncomfortable. Walking on the beach was a nightmare - constantly badgered by folk trying to sell trinkets and drugs!

Jamaica has better resorts to offer.....stay away from this one!
