Patrick Daigneault c’est un excellent hôtel 5 étoiles, service, propreté, la nourriture super, des restos a la cartes, wi-fi en tout temps sa prend juste des cartes mais c’est juste loin du centre ville presqu’au bout de la péninsule

 

Hope Ludlow Aldridge I have stayed there but 4-5 years ago. Then it was as Patrick says, an excellent Resort in every way – and we stayed in the regular section, not in the elite/superior section!   It is at a distance from town, so you have to hop on the bus or grab a cab (which is why I haven’t gone back there, as I like to be in town) – but if you want to spend most of your time on a Resort, I’d highly recommend.

 

 

Sandy Rybak I stayed at the Paradisus Princesa del Mar 4 years ago, Nov. 2013. It was an all girls holiday … we were 4 girls. I absolutely loved this hotel. I remember, when walking through the lobby area and viewing the beautiful pool area … I said to my friends … “So this is what Paradise looks like!”. The food was good, the pool was beautiful and the entertainment was the best I had ever seen at an all-inclusive. I stayed in the regular part of the hotel, not in the ‘Royal Service’ section. Would I go there again … absolutely … in a heartbeat!

IBEROSTAR VARADERO … We got back last night and had a fabulous time. What can I say … the resort is beautiful, the food was good … highly recommend the Japanese Restaurant, the beach is spectacular, the shows were great, especially the aquatic show. and all the staff are so happy & friendly. The only thing that is still under repair is the Theater. I think the shows would have presented even better if they were in the theater, rather than in the conference room … but they were still all enjoyable. We took a private day tour (with Cuban Trip Compass) to Havana in an old 50’s classic car and thoroughly enjoyed it. We also visited Varadero on a Hop On Hop Off bus, which only costs 5 CUC’s return trip .. and the pick up was right at our hotel. To sum it up … we had a fantastic time in Cuba and really had a hard time leaving. To those of you who will be going there soon … have a GR8 time!!! (I will add some pictures shortly).  This is a resort for all, couples and families. It is children friendly and there is a small children’s water park on the property. Too bad I didn’t take a picture of it, but it is on their website, I believe. It is also a resort for couples. We met a few couples on their honeymoon, we saw a wedding on the beach last week, and tomorrow, Wednesday, there are 3 weddings taking place, and apparently, each upcoming wedding brought large groups.

Iberostar Varadero today Some light repair work continues to a few roof areas etc but in no way interferes with stay Food first class and staff incredibly helpful and friendly.

Message reçu (vers 19 h 20 le lundi 25 septembre) de François Charest qui est sur place en ce moment – Merci François !

Petite update sur le Iberostar Varadero: hotel est opérationel. Dommages visibles mais ne nuisent pas vraiment. Le site a été très bien nettoyé mais on peut voir que plusieurs toits de batiments ont été durement affectés. La plage est superbe et l’eau très chaude. Chose a noter présentement nous ne sommes que 100 a l’hotel sur capacité 900. Par conséquent le restaurant interntional est fermé présentement mais le japonais et le méditerranéen est ouvert. Le bar de la piscine est présentement fermé mais les travaux vont débuter demain. Le personnel est sensationnel et toujours le sourire.

On passe du bon temps après 1 jours ici! 🙂

Update on iberostar varadero. Hotel is operational. Damages are visible but doesn’t prevent from any services. The site has been cleaned from everything but you can see that a lot of roof has been damaged. The beach is superb and water is hot. The hotel only has 100 tourist right now out of a capacity of 900. Because of that the international restaurant is closed but meditarenean and japanese are open. The poolbar is still closed but the repair will be starting tomorrow. All staf are exceptionnal and always smiling!  Having a great time after 1 day here !

Andrew Hutton For those of you who have not been there before, you must check out Mike’s Coffee Bar! The resort was great 2 years ago. Decent food (for Cuba), the service was pretty good. We went in Early December last time and it was not all that crowded. Good mixture of ages. Our 7 yr old (at that time) son truly had fun and was treated very well by the staff.

 

Linda Salerno  Well back from an awesome vacation!! Ocean El Patriarca was great. It was scared I wasn’t going to be able to eat but the food was great. You can’t really even tell a hurricane ran through the place. Everything open and running perfectly.  Weather perfect beach perfect….people all so nice.  Anywhere on the resort is fine to stay. It’s small enough you make your away around in no time. They also have the little shuttles if you can’t walk. If your heading for a day at the beach set your alarm to get a good spot lol. They sure go fast!

Shanise Fowler :  Great time staying at Ocean Vista Azul. Hired the pink car for 2 hours around Varadero for 40 CUC through the hotel and the blue to Havana for the day with Havacub Vision for 140. Would highly recommend the day trip to Havana!

 

Mario Bélanger :  Yes two beaches , the one at the left is smaller but you have much service ( bar , washroom and snack ) An other hotel open since I was there so maybe it is now overcrowded . The one at the right have less service and you have to walk more to go there , when I was there no service was provided on this side . If you like to walk on the beach you will have a lot of place because the beach doesn’t seem to finish !!!

 

Louise MorganAdministrateur du groupe Yes I stayed here in Sept 2016. Assuming nothing has changed all guests can use the infinity pool. I was lucky when I visited, the hotel was pretty quiet. I thought it was a very nice hotel with good modern rooms and two great pools. I would return.

Le bar de la plage etait meme chose que l’an passé mais sur la galerie du resto qui n´est pas encore ouvert. Et pas de toilette. Oui il manquait de palapas. Par chance ils ont des parasols qu ils installent a ta place ou tu desires.   Aiment parce que : la nourriture la plage le personnel le charme de l hotel mais ouiiii tout ca sé plus cher major d homme aussi

We have returned to Royalton Hicacos. We love it here for many reasons. This trip is special because our son and daughter were able to take vacation time from work to be here with us. This is their first trip to Cuba. The weather is wonderful – the water marvelous. All is Good!

The beach bar is open for lunch not supper. The good news is that the bathrooms are open again. No new palapas. Lots of umbrellas. The new general manager started last week. Have not met him yet.

The resort is at full capacity.

 

 

Pamela CovertSlater (février 2018)

 

We returned to Hicacos for a 10 day getaway. Jan 31st to Feb 9th. The weather was surprisingly warm for that time of year. Especially the last 6 days. The water was great and we swam almost every day. Although the resort was virtually full there was plenty of shade on the beach and around the pool.

 

Saturday is Cuba day and there is a full festival of music, dancing and great food on the west lawn. We enjoyed it so much that we stayed for close to 3 hours. You will see Tanya dancing in the photo below. Lots of enjoyment and applause when several good-natured guests volunteered to see who could most accurately mimic the drum roll of the band leader. Definitely a fun and unique percussion experience!

 

There was also a gymnastics exhibition which was awe-inspiring. I have posted a couple of photos showing a gymnast using his neck & knees to support a climbing apparatus while a another gymnast was performing balance exercises. Fantastic!

 

We Loved the Michael Jackson tribute show on the Stage.   Very Impressive!  We had a lovely Birthday dinner in the wine cellar with a guitar serenade.

 

I mentioned previously about the Cadeca for exchanging currencies to CUCs. I have attached a photo of the Cadeca booth with Mabel smiling “Hola”! The hours are posted on the sign above the window.

 

They are very busy repairing the Beach grill. The roof was thatched while we were there. We have been advised by one of the managers that there is a shortage of thatch available in Cuba due to so many resorts being damaged by Hurricane Irma. We are looking forward to the completion of repairs. Just as with so many other guests ~ the Beach Grill is one of our very favourite spots.
During each stay we are fortunate to get together with “old friends” and also to make new acquaintances with lovely people from Canada, England, Europe, etc. It is a highlight of our time there.

 

We are very happy when we are at Royalton Hicacos. I have mentioned this several times in previous reviews. Depending on your preference, it can be as upbeat or laid back as you choose It offers a little bit of everything For us it is a warm, gentle, fun experience. We wander around the resort and beach wherever the whim takes us. We enjoy everything about Royalton Hicacos.

It is our Happy Place.

Just got back from a PERFECT 7 day vacation at RH !! The resort is in pristine condition. The only sad part was the beach cafe …. but they have a fabulous bbq going at the beach with lots of great food.

Staff – top notch
Beach – perfect condition
Resort – if you didn’t know Irma came through ….you wouldn’t know there was a hurricane.

HIGHLY recommend this beautiful resort. We had a blast !!!

 

Pools are fabulous. Main pool is HUGE. The other two are more quiet but still beautiful. The food was even better than when we were there in 2015. Buffet very good. We did Italian which was good seafood which was ok for me – not a huge seafood fan but the other three enjoyed. Caribe – also very good and Mexican which we all really enjoyed. All in all great food and lot of options.

 

Would you say it’s a good resort for young people (partys and animation) ? Couples ? Families ?  –

Not a huge “party”resort but plenty of entertainment and the entertainment staff are great. I believe no kids under 16. I would consider us a party group and we had an absolute wonderful time. We met several young couples. Mid 20’s and they loved the resort.

 

What would be your recommendation for the kind and localisation for the best rooms ?

2500’s. It’s by a quieter pool area for those who don’t want bar service or entertainment. We spent our days at the main pool but our block of rooms were a perfect location.

Royalton Hicacos. We are here now and everything is beautiful and working well. Beach bar is still closed but they have a small desk at the beach where you can find food and coctails. 🙂 wifi is great. hope this helps.

 

 

Michael W Hawkins (novembre 2017)

Its a great resort, we have been more than 100 nights. We go for the staff, beach and Cuba. The price has gone up since Royalton took over and I’m not so sure about the value but the beach….spectacular!

Terry Smith.(21 octobre 2017)

Here at the Royalton Hicacos all is great come and visit no worries

 

 

Debra Cowell (décembre 2017)

 

It was beautiful. The only place that is still damaged is the beach restaurant but that is being rebuilt and will be finished late February. We have been many times and would highly recommend.   Most palapas were destroyed. There are some at the very back of the beach (both sides) but they are trying to build more. Plenty of umbrellas though.

 

 

Pamela Covert Slater (octobre 2017)

 

We were at Royalton Hicacos from October 25th to Nov 3rd. We are not usually there in the fall however because of the hurricane we were concerned about the staff and wanted to show our support for them and the resort.

 

We had a marvelous time as always. We were so impressed with how quickly repairs had been accomplished and continued to be done. I have photos of the workers on the ridges of the buildings that took my breath away. Everything was cleared up. For someone who was not familiar with the resort they may not have even noticed any differences. For us, the only obvious evidence of damage was some of the palm trees which had been defoliated. But even those were scattered among others that were fine. Curious how Mother Nature will choose one direction over another.

 

I want to mention one of the great improvements is the establishment of a Cadeca for exchanging money. It is located to the left of the nightclub as you walk towards the cigar bar. It is much more convenient than going to the front desk. We had no difficulty getting CUCs in ones.

 

Most of the palapas were destroyed by the hurricane. There is one lengthy remaining row of palapas abutting the green berm and 200 umbrellas (my estimate). More palapas are being built each day. There are also numerous sun beds available on the beach as well as around the main pool and on the lawn. I will post photos with this review.

 

Although the Tex Mex beach restaurant was closed for repairs a Beach charcoal bbq/grill serving kabobs, hamburgers, hot dogs, & fish was available with large refreshing pitchers of cucumber and fruit waters. In front of the bbq are 20 tables (or more) with umbrellas for eating your meal. To the right of the bbq is the drinks kiosk/bar.

 

Luckily the Diamond Club beach bar is fine with no damage. We had lots of fun there with J.B. and Leonis most afternoons when leaving the beach and on our way back to our room. Of course the next logical stop was the ice cream shop..yum yum!

 

A few days had some drizzly moments but we were not fazed at all. There was always something to do. We were often entertained in the lobby bar. One day Tanya brought a large table into the lobby bar and provided at least 100 Royal burgers and Cuban sandwiches for lunch. Everyone was delighted. It was very thoughtful and a lot of fun.

 

Prior to leaving Ontario for Varadero I booked a dinner at The Mansion for a special evening. It was a true disappointment. Without doubt the building is physically stunning. We were prepared for the expense but not the poor quality of the food. We both had the lobster…it was huge, cold and tough. Very difficult to release it from the shell. We felt as though we were fighting with it. It is highly unlikely that we will return. We have much better dinners at Hicacos.

 

We enjoyed wonderful meals in the buffet as well as the a la cartes. Throughout our stay the staff were wonderful, food was good, drinks were flowing, music everywhere. A time of love, fun, laughter & music.

 

We have traveled throughout much of Canada, the U.S., the Caribbean, Israel and Europe. All have had their own special appeal and provided us with wonderful experiences and memories. Many provided superior facilities.
That being said ~ We always return to Hicacos.
That is when we are Home.

Sonja Stochlinski I liked it very much… it’s small (in 2016 I’ve been to Grand Memories which is much bigger) and it has a homely, familiar atmosphere.
The food is good, the rooms are ok, but ours smelled a little like mould… which I also hat at Grand Memories, so I think it’s normal in Cuba…  The cocktails were better than at Grand Memories. Unfortunately I did not like the pool, the water was awful – dirty and warm..

Just back from Iberostar Laguna Azul great week in Varadero sun rise.   It was good not alot a lot of night life and shade around pool but good time.  Food was good and room clean. It was good

We just got back from there as well. We loved it!!!

 

Crystal Laing-Boys

Hi everyone!  Varadero is amazing! Everything is beautiful and at 100%. Even in Havana you would never know there was a hurricane just weeks ago. I’m in Laguna azul and it is fantastic. Employees are amazing, friendly and so welcoming. I feel like they are all family!. Beaches are perfect! Water is almost clear now but still stunning. The weather has been great too! Sunny and hot!

 

Geneviève Gagné

J’ai adoré le Laguna Azul, c’est pas tellement “party” même s’il y a des gens qui sont la pour ca! C’est très couple, personne d’un certain âge! Il y a beaucoup de jeune famille mais j’arrivais facilement à oublier qu’il y avait des enfants sur le resort. Le resort est tellement vaste que même à pleine capacite (comme lors de notre passage) on ne le sent pas autant sur la plage, dans les piscines que dans les restos! C’était notre première mais pas notre dernière fois. Le père de mon chum en est à sa 16e fois a ce resort Oon y retourne en avril! Pour ma part le site super vaste me charme, le fait qu’on aille l’impression de ne pas être beaucoup de client sur place et qu’il est facile d’avoir de l’intimité c’est parfait!

Information on Melia Las Antilles. Just a quick note. I will post more information when service is better. For Canadian cell phones. Telus does not hold a presence in Cuba. Purchasing a package will do you no good. The Hotel is beautifull. It is dated but no enough to complain. Rooms are very big. Grounds are clean. Staff. omg the staff are fabulous. Plenty of food. If you cant find something to eat you’re too picky. As previpusly stated this is just a short and sweet update. more pics to come.

 

 

Melissa Pelley (19 octobre 2017)

Just came back from Melia Las Antillas, Varadero.

Weather was beautiful and hot! Hotel had barely any prof of hurricanes, they were working on a few of the umbrellas by the pool, a roof over a show venue (which is still being used to perform without any issues) and a roof over one of the restaurants. (Not in use, but instead they use one of the restaurant venues “Don Pepperone” as both the International and Mediterranean restaurants, switching back and forth night to night)

The buffet food was like most hotels in Cuba, edible but really not spectacular. If you like prosciutto you’ll be happy, the eggs in the morning are a safe bet. Fresh made breads are fabulous. Fish cooked on the spot was good.

The rice paella at the little picnic barbecue in between the pools and beach was raved about by other vacationers. The burgers at Norberto’s grill right by the beach are decent and cooked on the spot.

We ate at the International restaurant and the Mediterranean restaurant. International: get the rice with mushrooms and egg to start (out of this world!) the carrot soup is great. The beef sirloin is a very good choice for the main. Mediterranean restaurant: Also very very good! Bruschetta and prawn soup is fantastic. The beef skewer with truffle reduction was very good. Desserts are super fresh. Reserve the restaurants every night if you can! You have to reserve a day before the night you want to eat there.

Negatives:
When we asked the staff for an extra bottle of water for our room, they made it hard to get one. It seems they have a quota on how many bottles of water to give out. Not impressed with that.

If you have a sensitive stomach, Cuba may not necessarily be the ideal place for you to go. We were 4 people. There for 5 days, one of us had a rough time… Imodium and Pepto bismol were required for two full days…this was before having eaten at the à la carte restaurants. Could have been due to food, or maybe the heat, or maybe both.

All in all, good trip because we had a good group of girls. We’re all around the age of 29 and could have benefited from a resort geared more towards our age group. We seemed to be young for the average vacationer at this hotel. They do live music in the lobby during dinner hours, and then a show near the pool around 9:30pm. Afterwards, the nightlife at the resort was slim to none…but we made our own fun at the discotheque on site anyhow!

Hope this helps!

 

 

Thorsten Schulte (27 novembre 2017)

Just a short review about my vacations at Melias las Antillas. Actually, almost everything is working fine after “Irma”. However you have to expect some work going on right now. Like parasols are being replaced at the pool and at the beach. There are missing more of them. Also I have to say that reserving the sun chairs starts at like 6:30 in the morning. And, as most vistiors want them to be in the shadow, there are not enough oft them. Also food is boring…. BUT! Hey Folks. You visit Cuba. A very poor Country. And those People over there do a great job. Apart from what I said before I had a great time at the Hotel. The stuff was very friendly and did a great job. Also my room was very good and clean. You can drink (24 h) and eat nearly all day (and night). The pool and the beach are really great and as I already mentioned, the stuff do their best. Sometimes something is out of order (like Tonic water), but hey… That’s Cuba. Be aware, that not everything is perfect, but… and that makes it so special and lovely… This belongs to the Country. And always remember…. You will get much more than any cuban will get in his life… So respect this.
I LOVE CUBA !

p.s.: please excuse my english as i am no native english speaking guy

 

 

Mary Monica (published on February 18 2018)   Hi Kim I have been a few times and it is a lovely resort, fabulous musicians. Great terrace for end of day gathering. Good assortment of drinks. Beautiful beach and I find food at the Melias has more variety. Be sure to book the a la cartes in particular the Romantico which I understand has been renovated following Irma.

 

Suzette Bond (published on February 18 2018)  I have been there 14 times and it is a good resort. Mary you are right the Romantico restaurant has been renovated as well as the Italian one. The beach is beautiful with lots of space and the employees are just great! You will surely have a great time! By the way the Melia did not have too much damage due to Irma but some roofing have been restored since then.

The Roc is awesome! My parents and their friend have been there multiple times the last 2 years. My family was just there this past spring as well. The food is awesome and the people are like family. The beach is very nice as well. Clean white sand, and they just rebuilt their beach umbrella trees. The pool is a good size with a nice swim up bar. They also have a small baby pool if you have little ones in your group. My parents keep going back because the people are so amazing and the service is awesome. We wouldn’t go anywhere else next time we go back either!  Just bring bug spray. There is a swamp near by. But lovely swim.up bar

 

Françoise Larrivée I went to Arénas Doradas 3 years ago and the site is beautiful, but the food is not very good….
