Located on the beach at the Rincon Francés zone, one of the most beautiful sites in the Hicacos Peninsula, within the Varadero ecological reserve, Paradisus Varadero is an ultra-all-inclusive 5* Eco-Resort with 510 rooms; a beautiful deluxe hotel complex with a quasi-Thai motif, standing out from other Varadero hotels for its Caribbean decor with hints on a colonial theme and a huge freeform pool.

It is, in one word, a beautiful resort with a great working staff that is always striving to assist you.

Rooms are clean, spacious and really comfortable.

Food is good in all of the available restaurants. The beach barbecue is great for fresh fish and paella and features live Cuban bands. Besides the buffet, four other restaurants are available (reservation needed). The Japanese is probably the best, and a 24 hour snack bar from the pool might come in handy as well.

The service at this hotel is very good value for money and if you are willing to pay a little more for top class service we recommend the Royal Service section / rooms, since reservations for restaurants are much easier and at the time you prefer ; pool bar staff comes around constantly with fresh drinks and fruit ; rooms feature large bathrooms, Jacuzzis, outdoor showers, terrace with ocean and sea views...besides many other exclusive services like butler, Spa, and 24 hour room service.

Recommended for families, weddings, honeymoons, and wellness/spa.
