The hotel complex features a main buffet restaurant and three additional restaurants (including a la carte), which are open all day. The food is fresh and tasty with plenty of different options. Two bars serve you many domestic drinks.
Two large swimming pools and plenty of sunning area in a quiet environment offers a pleasant vacation time. The hotel beach is one of the best in Varadero and is accessed in a short walk. At the clean beach, you could use lawn chairs and the open bar is a very good addition to have a pleasant time.
There are many activities available. One of the most pleasant activities for us was an opportunity to walk along superb beaches (Varadero island is 23 km long and hotels beach is located approximately 10 km from the west end at the canal and 13 km from the east end.).
Electricity in this hotel (because is operated by Spaniards) is 220 V electrical current. If you need to recharge your Canadian/American batteries, an adapter is required.
One word of advice: do not take the room no. 1111 because is located on the main floor next to the noisy bar. The best rooms have northern exposure (our room was no. 1515 -- excellent and cool) and away from noisy evening entertainment shows
