Five star hotel - not after german standard but for the relationship of price to the country very good! A great hotel, right on the beautiful beach, the really for relaxation. The hotel consists of many small houses, which are not more than 2 floors. We had a wonderful view of the beautiful garden/almost park sheltered. Check in: neutral, fast and uncomplicated. The room was immediately available. The rooms are: large, direct view of the sea or garden, not very new decor - but rather a bit chipped, the cleanliness was good, the bathroom ok size, the water pressure of ... the shower minimalist, similarly weak hair dryer. The closets are clean but a bit dated. The meals in one of the innumerable buffet restaurants: the food is diversified with a huge selection, waiting for some thementheken, as much freshly prepared. Tablecloths are not available but always. The service is very friendly and attentive, the drinks at the table were always filled and every request was, if possible. The drinks service at the bar, as well as on the beach is attentive and good. Contrary to all information we had no insects in the garden, on the beach or somewhere else in the area. A great holiday in a beautiful country, friendly people, great location. The beach invited to long walks. Worth mentioning is the guide of TUI ' Hubert ', great service great tips and tried to meet every wish. All in all a great holiday, we were refreshed and would love to go back. read hotel review

We are already visited the whole world, but here in Cuba we had a wonderful holiday in a top hotel - i can only excellent 100% say Royal service in all areas from the management team to the gardener here great job. There were all very friendly and helpful, but were friendly and particularly lidaimi Jorge of the rs pool bar as well as in service xiomara, one just had to point out. The rooms in the Royal-service areas left nothing to be desired - there is really everything perfect. Perhaps the only very small drawback was the somewhat stony ... beach directly in front of the bungalow, but only a few steps and one is at the beautiful sand beach - so really no deduction white. It was a great vacation - we gladly come back read hotel review

Best hotel in Varadero with significant drawbacks.

  • January 2014
We have stayed in many luxury beach resort in the world and must say, that the standard in Cuba much cheaper than elsewhere. This also applies to this hotel. We have several facilities on site Varadero also looked at and found however, that the paradisus in Varadero the best hotel is. So, if, after Varadero, then the paradisus and don't of the star rating of the hotel fooled. We were horrified, in which catastrophic condition vermeinliche 5 star hotels. Now back to the review from paradisus: The size of the room is very good and definitely greater than 'normal' hotel ... rooms. The hotel itself is about 20 years old. Only the royal area is only three years built. The hotel and the rooms are in a good constructional condition, only the cleanliness in the rooms left a lot to be desired (bathroom not cleaned - we found bspw. The toothpaste of our predecessors in the tooth finery cup to, hair and a lot of dust in the bathroom). Also over several days, despite many hotel employee, the whole day run around there, trash, etc. in the area, the not cleared. The same applies to the beach. What for us was the worst, that the large main pool unusable is, since the water was very cloudy and on the walls of the pools algae and color deposit on a very bad wasserhygiene point out. We have from health reasons not dare once go. Similar saw the the other guests, since during our two weeks there we only twice guests there are swimming. Also missing several tiles of the pool. Only the swimming pool, the royal area had transparent water and was in order. This is however the royal customers reserved. Many russian customers, the majority were, otherwise canadians and a few german. We would generally Cuba only people to recommend, the trip as culture make. If you only beach holiday would, get for the same money somewhere else in the world much more luxury and cleanliness offered! read hotel review

    Entertainment was unfortunately on the beach and also very loud. We went to the farthest point on beach and heard unfortunately still the entertainment music, but it was bearable the volume it was. Main pool hygienetechnisch a disaster. Could also due to the fact, that no equipment have. There is no sieve and no ' poolsauger' ; instead try the staff the pool with normal broom clean to keep, but did not work.

    Friendliness of the staff in the restaurant is good and partly even cordial, especially, if you regularly tip. But that is normal and also ok.

  • Location
    5.0

    The hotel lies as only all local hotels right on the beach. All other hotels are reset and a dense shrubbery away from the beach. Thus this hotel has the advantage, that you at all because, many of the rooms and also from the restaurant from the beach and the sea can be seen. Besides the beach is very much wider than in most other hotels - certainly three times as wide - which means, that you on the beach not close to on close is. The really is very pleasant! The beaches of other hotels partly up to a meter high scarps, which is not very nice and hardly erklimmbar are.

  • Gastronomy
    4.0

    We were always in the buffet restaurant and in the à la carte restaurants. Therefore, the rating for the buffet restaurant. Absolutely in order, except for, that many dishes often cold. Cold especially the meals, which in buffet form there. If you place fish or meat roasts left, the food was good.

    Rooms are very large: the term junior suite is absolutely right. Cleanliness bathroom see above.

The hotel is very recommendable. The hotel is located directly on a beautiful beach and it is in perfect condition. In the sea one could itself both withdraw and entertainment, depending on where you are in the very expansive beach ones had. At first we had a 8 - day trip and then in this hotel our bathing - and relaxing vacation spent. The buffet food left with live cooking and incredibly diverse selection nothing to be desired. Only the à-la-carte restaurants were very different. The mexicans could not convince, Romantica and asian Cuba were very good and the japanese ... was very good. read hotel review
