Friendly staff, short walk to the beach, clean rooms. All at a reasonable rate. Staff had lots of great ideas and suggestions for tours. Felt very safe on and off the resort. Would definitely go again.

Just cameback from Roc Barlovento and must say it is not a 4 or 5 stars resort. The plumbing needs major renovation. My room was on the third floor (top floor) and had no water pressure whatsoever and barely any hot water. The food was great, either at the buffet or a la carte, gained like 5 lbs during my...

We spent a week at this adults only 3 1/2 star resort on the edge of Varadero. Less than a 5 minute walk to local bars, shopping or the hop on hop off bus. First the good points. The beach is fantastic but everyone knows this. The resort is a typical Cuban resort being a little weathered with cracked cement...

Our experience started at about 4am. We booked through sunwing. The desk staff was a bit cold as we checked in. I'll chalk it up to being night shift. We were surprised to see our room consisted of two small beds as that was not what I had booked. We didn't complain. Now this was our first trip outside Canada,...

Most of the staff are rude, not enough lounges on the beach. Cards used for rooms can be used in other rooms. It is more suitable if your going there just to relax and are an older couple. The nightly shows are okay.. but other than that pretty boring. Also, they are located closely to a refinery and if you...

This was my first trip to Cuba, and I must say I loved it (minus having to pay to use toilets, lack of toilet paper, liquid hand soap, paper towel, everyone expecting tips). The Roc Barlovento is rated a 3.5 star and I would say, in my experience, it is more like a 2.5 to 3 star. We traveled with...

The resort is on the eastern edge of the Veradero strip, so walking to "town" is quite easy. The beach is fantastic, as are the 2 pools. Cuba is essentially a third world country, so you're not going there for the food. That said, you won't starve to death either. Drinks are served in small plastic cups (even beer) except...
