Amy Adejokun Section editor

The architecture of Arenas blancas isn't very welcoming and is outdated. It's just a block of concrete with few openings.

    Location 5.22 /10

    The hotel is a short walk from Varadero town centre and 20 miles from Varadero international airport. Havana is 100 miles away.

    Accommodation 6.20 /10

    The 350 rooms have satellite television, telephone, air conditioning, safe and a fridge. They either have one or two double beds. All have balconies except the ones on the first floor. The view overlooks the sea or the garden. The rooms are very old fashioned in green and blue colours. The bathroom has a bath and a hair dryer. The wash basin is separated from the bath and toilet by a door.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    Built in 1998, the Arenas Blancas hotel has kept its outdated architecture and decoration. The buildings are made of concrete and are quite imposing in white and blue colours. The reception hall is confined within the concrete without any openings and is very dark. The buildings are set around the swimming pool. Four bars propose Cuban cocktails.

    Food and drink 6.45 /10

    A buffet restaurant offers international cuisine and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The restaurant is large and noisy and the decoration is very kitch. 3 à la carte restaurants propose Italian, Creole, and international cuisine for dinner. Make reservations at the public relations office.

    Beach 8.20 /10

    A large golden sand beach welcomes tourists where straw parasols and deckchairs are installed. Palm trees for shading under. A sailing club proposes catamaran, pedal boats, kayak and a volley ball court for sport lovers. The beach bar proposes a buffet at midday and in the evening it becomes a Cuban restaurant. It is quite pleasant, under a straw hut. An important point; the fruit juices are fresh.

    To know

    The tennis courts are lit during the night but you have to pay. All the rooms have a balcony except those on the first floor.
