Fodor's Expert Review Iberostar Varadero
Carretera Las Morlas Autopista, Km 17.5, Varadero, Matanzas Province, 42200, Cuba Fodor's Choice
This top-of-the-line, rather grandiose resort has an impressive pool with dramatically eclectic design elements, including domed temples on islets, connected by Venetian bridges. Thatched palapas provide private shade on one of the smoothest stretches of beach, and there are calm waters on the peninsula. Other sophisticated features in this columned pleasure palace include Japanese and Mediterranean options among the five restaurants, an ultra-luxe spa, a nightclub, and sports ranging from archery to tennis. The elegant, spacious rooms and even larger junior suites are spread over 11 thatch-roofed, low buildings. Decorated in shades of peach, these rooms are among the most luxurious in Varadero. The large bathrooms are notable for their high-quality fixtures,walk-in showers, and decorative tile work. There are organized activities for kids 4 to 12, but this is mostly an upscale, adult environment.
- the property feels less resort-like and more hotel-like
