Roc Barlovento is a small resort conceived only for adults (over 16 years) that is located on Varadero's main street, at the very beginning of the town, far from where most resorts are.

Its location is probably its best appeal since the stretch of beach is wonderful and everything is close: restaurants,shops and places of tourist interest…making it great for guests who love walking and very convenient to buy souvenirs and other needs.

There is also a double decker bus which stops right at the door every 1/2 hour or so, costs 5 CUC for a day pass and one can get on and off as many times as wanted.

The hotel is simple but cozy, with nice common areas, well-tended gardens, 3 pools (a main pool + 2 other smaller ones), and easy access to the beach and all restaurants.

Rooms are comfortable, of good size and featuring balconies overlooking the pool or the gardens (the ones closer to the pool might be too noisy for some guests since the night shows take place there and are loud!)

There is Wi-Fi service in the lobby area but a pre-paid card is needed. The hotel very often runs out of them therefore consider buying a few in advance if you have the chance.

All in all, a good choice for those who prefer smaller, more intimate hotels rather than big resorts and at a more affordable price.
