The Amigo hotel doesn't have much charm and its architecture reminds us of Soviet buildings. Not very pleasant but it does offer many activities.

    Location 9.14 /10

    The Amigo club is located in the centre of the Varadero peninsula, 30 miles from the airport and 6 miles from the town centre. It is just next to a superb beach. The Chaplin marina 2/3 of a mile away.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The 411 rooms are spacious and bright. All rooms have satellite television, telephone, minibar, safe (extra cost), and air conditioning. They are simply and pleasantly decorated. The bathroom has a shower or bath with hair dryer. It is very big and bright. It is quite complicated and difficult to find the rooms. The 80 rooms in the Looka Playa Grande are in one floor bungalows. Decorated in a tropical style, the all have a lounge in warm colours, satellite television, telephone, minibar, safe (extra cost), and air conditioning. And all have a balcony or terrace. The bathroom has a shower, bath, hair dryer and separate WC.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    Built in 1996, the hotel is in a large, concrete building with three floors and is installed around a swimming pool. The Playa Grande bungalows are a bit further down in a tropical park. The main building has the style of Soviet buildings, in concrete, very cold and not very welcoming. Its arranged in such a way it is easy to get lost. The only pleasant place is the small lounge under hundred-year-old trees where you can have a quiet drink while listening to the birdsong. Not easy to find but once you've found a place to sit it's great!

    Food and drink 5.20 /10

    The Amigo club has a buffet restaurant and 2 la carte restaurants. A buffet restaurant offers international cuisine, not varied and of average quality and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The restaurant is large, dark and noisy. The decor is kitch and simple. An la carte restaurant proposes Cuban cuisine and Italian cuisine as another type. Booking is mandatory. The Looka Playa Grande has a buffet restaurant near the the swimming pool. Local and international cuisine. Themed evenings are arranged.

    Beach 8.20 /10

    You have to cross a wooden bridge to get to the beach. This is a large white sand beach where many activities are on offer (kayak, catamaran, pedal boats.) Large parasols and deckchairs wait for people who just want to relax. A snack bar offers snacks and drinks during the day.

    To know

    The hotel's rooms haven't got a sea view because the hotel is set back from the sea. The Amigo club and the Lookea Playa grande are on the same site. The Amigo Club is in the large central building and the Playa grande in the park with bungalows. Le Playa grande is closed in the low season. The hotel has a large lounge surrounded by nature and under large trees. Very pleasant!!!

      The Acuazul is an unpretentious town hotel with 257 rooms. This is an exception in Varadero, where most hotels are giant seaside resorts offering an all-inclusive formula.

      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.
