Allegro Varadero Reviews – Cuba Hotels – Allegro Varadero

The weather was nothing less than amazing. We were blessed with sunshine every day of our stay with temps of 28 to 36 degrees C. The only complaints would be the little plastic cups that they served the drinks in and the fact that certain drinks were not available as they ran out later in the day. MAKE SURE YOU TAKE A TRAVEL MUG. To sum it up if you go to the Allegro Varadero and don’t enjoy yourself, Then it would be your own fault….. Loosen up ….. You only live once ….. Enjoy Life!!!!

This is our honest opinion on the Allegro Varadero.

Your Arrival: We stayed at the Allegro Varadero from Mar 29/10 to April 6/10.

We Arrived mid afternoon. Staff at the front desk very friendly and helpful very short wait then we were on our way driven to our room in the Cayo Largo section of the resort by Louis [great guy].

Rooms: We were escorted to our absolutly gorgeous room on the corner, second floor of the second building from the beach room # 6220. We had a King size bed, coffee maker, fridge, Dresser, two large closets [safe in each one], large clean full bath with private toilet and then there was a balcony with a view of the ocean that wrapped around the side of the building streching nearly 40 feet from end to end.Our room was cleaned daily by Daylin who was without a doubt the best maid either of us could have ever hoped for. And for those who complained that they did not get proper supplies, I tell you all, We recieved everything we asked for and more. A friendly note and a good tip goes a long way.

Restaurants and Bars: Now for the FOOD, I don’t have any idea what people were complaining about. The food was not bland, very good actually. We always found a good variety of food and enjoyed most of it. We found the food to be very much like we are used to in Canada. We ate at only one A la carte which was the Palma Real. The food was ok, The service was great. We had most meals at the buffet restaurant the best advise here is be early this is a huge resort with many people and the Quality and variety gets less & less the later you arrive. We ate in the same section each meal and received super service from our waitress. Also for lunches the BBQ at the beach bar was always very good. We were not real impressed with the pizza but there was lots of other good food.

Beach/Pools/Grounds: We had our own pool with bar and a Jacuzzi in our section. Felix our best Bartender was always willing to do what he could to make our days filled with drink, music and chit chat. There was another bartender who worked with him who was not friendly, But we simply avoided her when possible. The BEACH "WOW!!" the beach Breathtaking to say the least. Very beautiful. Cleaned everyday with a tractor and manually raked. The sand is very white and very fine, a few shells but it is a beach after all. Two evenigs during our stay the beach became the sight of BEACH PARTYS, live music, dancing and even a limbo contest. With a bar set up right on the beach.

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel: Our evenings consisted of taking in the nightly shows that for the most part were entertaining and well performed. Then we would be off to the disco for more drinks, Dancing and watching the peformances of the less than sober partiers as they let loose after a day in the Sun. We did one excursion which was the Jeep safari Amazingly Great Time!!!! Well worth the money. Our tour guide Victor lead us through the tourist free areas of Varadero. With stops for Speed boat drive up a beautiful river, Snorkeling over a Coral reef, A tour of a old coffee plantaion including lunch and horse back riding [Thank you Peter for the tour and history lesson] and then to the cave for a swim in the underground lake. The double decker bus trip is a must. Great way to see Varadero resort area and go down town to enjoy a few hours of shopping, entertainment and dining. If you like old cars as we do this is a dream come true beautiful classic cars everywhere.

Other Comments: The staff for the most part were very friendly and willing to help, there were a few, as everywhere else in the world, that were not so nice but we didn’t let that bother us. The staff worked very hard and there was not always enough staff to accommodate the volume of guests expecting service.
