Booked with Air Canada Vacations on a late flight arriving approx midnight at the resort. Only 5 couples and a couple of kids booking in so only 1 counter person and 1 driver to take us to our rooms. After we checked in we went to the all night Cafe for pizza, fries and some drinks. Very good after a long day.
ROOMS; were great, nice and clean, modern decor. Bath had separate shower with a rain head so that was nice. No mold or mildew in the grout. We were located half way between the buffet and the beach so it was a good location.
Al le Carte's were all very good food. No reservations required, this I didn't like as you had to line up by 6:45 for a 7:30 sitting.
Animation team and evening dances were great, best I've seen in a long time.
There is a coffee bar and jazz bar, great drinks and nice quiet area for sitting.
The complete staff at this resort are outstanding in everything they do. On you all the time for food or drinks and expecting nothing. The service is great so you don't mind tipping.
I though the buffet food would be better for this resort as everything else was so good, it was just OK, nothing out standing.
Great place to stay, I would recommend to friends and my be back again.
"magnificent place to go"

I just got back from this hotel and couldn’t help but write a review on how magnificent this place is. I and my family went on vacation to this hotel and it was a blast for us, there are lots of positive things to say about Ocean Varadero hotel but I am just going to list but a few. The staff in this hotel is the best thing to happen to this hotel because they were all genuine and friendly. The rooms are clean and very neat, the sheets are also great and the beds are comfy and soft. The air condition is the rooms we stayed in worked fine and every other stuff there was working perfectly. The rooms we stayed in are close to the beach so it was easy for us to visit the beach and the cleaners cleaned out daily. We just had a little problem of bugs but we were prepared for it and sprayed the room daily during our 5 days stay here. During our check in, cocktail was served to us and it was just what we needed after that long travel. Food is amazing, breakfast buffet service was great with great choices, the Italian a la carte restaurant was nice too.. Activities like swimming at the beach and snorkeling where available for the guests and we did some of that. The location is great and all members of my family is saying thank you to the staff for making this holiday cheerful and superb for us. We will see you guys soon again.
