The Bahia Principe is a pleasant hotel where families and couples can make the most of the sea and the many activities available. It is well located on the peninsula, not too near nor too far from Varadero centre and the other hotels.

    Location 10.0 /10

    A few miles from Varadero centre and 30 minutes from the airport, the hotel is in a pleasant setting, set back from the other hotels. Havana is 78 miles away.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The hotel has 503 rooms that were all renovated in 2003 and tastefully decorated. The main colours are blue and white. The bed head is made of wrought iron and decorated in soft material. They have either a garden or sea view with balcony. All rooms have satellite television, telephone, minibar, safe (extra charge), and air conditioning. The bathroom has a bath and the WC is separated from the shower and wash basin.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The hotel has a main building and small bungalows scattered around a garden with restauants, nightclub and other facilities. The hall is very nicely decorated, in wrought iron, wicker, and columns in warm, bright colours and greenery. Large bay windows let the light filter in. A white wooden staircase leads to the rooms. The hotel's architecture retains the Caribbean style.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    A buffet restaurant proposes international cuisine and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A large, colourful room welcomes all the customers in a wicker decor full of greenery. 3 Ó la carte restaurants propose Italian, fish and refined cuisine for dinner. You have to book beforehand. All of them are near the beach.

    Beach 8.20 /10

    The hotel's beach is rather deep and narrow compared to the other hotel beaches. It is almost as if we were in a creek. The fine sand welcomes holiday makers to relax or play beach volleyball. There is direct access from the hotel. The snack bar on the beach is open 24 hours a day.

    To know

    Before, The Bahia Principe was the Varadero Club Med, it was then renovated in August 2003. Part of the hotel is reserved for "el pueblo cubano". This is a place with bars and shops and where shows are put on. A piano bar to relax and enjoy Cuban cigars.
