"Typical Cuban Tourist Trap"

Overall Resort Rating:

Average

Open quote

Most main street residents have turned their doorways into gift shops. Everyone is selling the same thing so not much variety. We still did find some nice items to being back however. The main public park was a treat. It is for locals and it gave me an appreciation for how Cuba could have been had it not been forced to deal with dire economic situations.

Varadero appears to be an emerging resort without varied night life and flea market easily accessible by either bus or taxi

Due to us being all inclusive and having booked a coulpe of days in Havana we did not go out in Veradero much although when we went to the Beatles bar it, was a good change to have drinks in real glass!

Horse and cart ride will allow you to see parts of varedoro tourists do not see. Park very nice but small. Tourist flee markets all sell the same merchandise. Open top bus will take you from the hotel to varadero town.

Nice resort. Very small and safe. Good selection of places to eat and drink. It is only a very small resort centre but is in a great location to visit Havana.

Did not venture much into the general resort as the Hotel provided what we required. However, there were plenty of shops & restaurants in First Avenue that provided a good variety of gifts & food types.

"Incredible Beaches"

Overall Resort Rating:

Very Good

Open quote

The beach of Varadero is incredible! I have never seen a beach so beautiful and been in sea so clear and warm! Varadero doesn't have loads to offer in terms of eating out etc, however as all inclusive customers we didn't really wish to venture out for food and drink. The town is really cute and nice to go to the markets but there isn't loads to offer. Varadero does have a lake where you can swim with dolphins (highly recommended). I'd recommend a trip or two places such as Havana to get a real feel for Cuban culture and do some sightseeing.

"Stunning, peaceful,clean safe beach."

Overall Resort Rating:

Good

Purpose built tourist resort, so I doubt you're seeing anything of the real Cuba. Perfect for beach lovers, as the beach is stunning. Excursions out are essential, as it will feel like "Groundhog Day" otherwise.

Varadero is a nice area to stay it but don't stay at the Iberostar Laguna Azul as this hotel is poor i would recommeded staying at a different hotel and ensure you read reviews before booking don't just go on the Thomson information on the website or brochure

One very long road with some bars and restaurants and shops scattered along the road all seeming to sell the same arts and craft goods.A good public park witha lake makes a good place to sit and chill , it has a number of bars and eating places within the park so makes a nice afternoon venue.

Only visited the town once and had a decent night out,but thought that the taxi fare Made the evening more expensive (A bus can be used but is not very reliable and can take forever to get to Varadero )
