Looking to make last minute trip to Varadero. I’ve been before, Barlovento off-season when only 15% occupied so food very limited, had great time regardless! Travelling companion is not fussy at all. So, we have reasonable expectations for food and accomodations.
Having said that…reading the reviews of the places available for our dates is pretty depressing. I know, grain of salt, but wow there is a ton of negativity. It’s really hard to decide when over half the reviewers say they’d never go back, in all cases.
We’re weighing options like Arenas Blancas, Sol Sirenas Coral, Oasis 1920…but even pricier resorts like Melia Las Antillas and Sol Palmeras takes a bashing. Barcelo Marina gets rated a bit better but I really would like to be more central. Those seem to be the choices.
If someone could chime in with even a “meh, it’ll do” or “truly horrific” on any of these, that would be great.
