IBEROSTAR TAINOS Feb 18, 2017
December 3 to 10, 2015
After deciding to go to Varadero, Cuba once again (last went in 2010), we then had to decide what resort to stay at. After reading many reviews, we chose IBEROSTAR TAINOS.
I checked out the website Selloffvacations.com and they had the Iberostar priced at $575. plus $410. Tax for a total of $985. 00 each or $1970. for the both of us. I then, called my buddy Kelly at Sears Travel and booked the trip.
The Iberostar is located 30 minutes from Varadero International Airport and fifteen minutes from downtown Varadero.
I read the reviews and overall they were good.
The beach here is amazing with white sand and turquoise waters. The beach goes on for miles.
The Iberostar had lots of shaded areas and someone was always there to help you with your beach chairs.
Our room was a good size, with a huge king size bed, two night stands, a desk, satellite TV, fridge - stocked with 4 cans of soda/beer and 1.5 litre bottle of water - full bath/shower with hair dryer and toiletries. Towels changed every two days, but I am glad I brought my own washcloths as none were provided. Beach towels are in your room and are to be left there. You can exchange for clean ones whenever you like.
We stayed in the main hotel, which has four floors. We were on the top floor (room 1339) and had a nice view of the beach. My only concern was the antiquated elevator which was sooooo slow and made creaky noises.
The Resort also offered bungalows which I think were more money. I liked where we were as it was close to the lobby and to the main buffet restaurant.
The Resort has one beautiful swimming pool which was always busy and there were games to be played there also.
The Hotel offered internet service at a cost of 2 CUC per hour. The card, available at the front desk, is good for 30 days. There is no Wi-Fi
Would we stay here again - probably not as many things need to be updated and is more a 3 Star than a four star resort

Iberostar Tainos, a perfect relaxing vacation Apr 19, 2011
This hotel has the Iberostarname but is owned by the cuban government for about 80%. Still you can find that typical luxury Iberostar feeling in this hotel. Eventhough there's no special room for the disabled, each room is spacious enough to use it when you're in a wheelchair (although the rooms in the bungalows are somewhat smaller). When you keep in mind that this hotel is placed in a country with very limited resourches it's amazing what they offer you each and every day for (f.e.)dinner. The staff is very friendly and always willing to help you whenever and where ever they can. The animationteam is very professional and they try to entertain you the whole day through. In the evening there's is almost every night a wonderful show. There are also performances by prof. artists. When you're in a wheelchair remember that Cuba isn't wheelchairfriendly. The public restrooms aren't very wheelchairfriendly in the hotel. The doors are simply way too small. So that means you have to use the toilet in your own room. When you want to do a trip you can book these in the hotel at the desk of (f.e.)Cubatur. But let me warn you ! They don't always tell you the truth. I asked if I could do the trip to Havana (I'm in a wheelchair) they said I could but they didn't tell me I had to stay in the bus a lot because I couldn't visit places cause there were stairs. Even lunch was a problem because our guide took us to a restaurant with lots of stairs ! All in all a disappointing day. Simply said, when you're in a wheelchair there are no trips you can do.
The "a la cart" restaurants are wonderful ! You really must try them. This hotel is the place to be if you want a vacation filled with fun and rest. Even kids aren't forgotten about. There's a special kidsclub for them.
