    Location 9.14 /10

    In the heart of a small town of Varadero, about 15 miles from the international airport (30 minutes), the Acuazul is a two building complex that is named after its azure blue colour. It has ten floors and is 500 metres from the beach, along a main road.

    Accommodation 5.70 /10

    The hotel's 257 rooms lack a bit of "warmth" but are decent. They have simple amenities: bath, television, air conditioning, safe (extra charge) and 110 volt plugs. You telephone from the reception desk. The top floors have a beautiful panoramic view over Varadero.

    Overview 5.70 /10

    Built in 1991, the Acuazul looks older than it is. This building isn't very esthetic but owes its charm to the good atmosphere. It combines both the advantages and disadvantages of the town. Curious people can discover Cuban life on the Varadera streets whereas people who are just looking for peace, quiet and nature don't have to go anywhere.

    Food and drink 5.20 /10

    Relatively small, the restaurant serves food morning and evening only, with not much selection. You can have lunch at the pool's snack bar. It is cramped and the food isn't very good. There is another snack bar on the beach and a lobby bar in the entrance hall of the hotel.

    Beach 5.20 /10

    The large beach is great for beach sports such as beach volley. Unfortunately, it isn't just at the foot of the hotel and its sand is neither very fine nor very clean.

    To know

    This hotel doesn't provide the all-inclusive formula. Guests are primarily German, Italian, Spanish, French and Canadian.

      3 miles from Varadero town centre, the Bella Costa is close to a superb beach. The rest, though, lacks a certain charm.

      3 miles from Varadero town centre, the Arenas Doradas is in a pleasant setting: 316 rooms in eleven Caribbean style houses scattered on eight acres of garden. We are far from all the usual mega tourist complexes in Varadero, but you shouldn't look too closely at small details.

      Located 2.5 miles away from Varadero, the Tuxpan was built in the early 1990's. The general setting is not very stylish. However, the beach, the pool and the atmosphere make this 233 room hotel a good spot in Varadero in its category.
