    Stunning beaches with gentle waves
    So having done a few oven beach trips with my little one this was the first time he played in the ocean and likely due to the clear water and he could see his feet and the calm waves. The sand was soft and no seaweed or sharp shells or rocks in our resort area. Beaches alone are worth the trip!

    Paradise beach
    Traveling with a companion to Varadero Beach was an unforgettable experience. The pristine shores and inviting waters provided the perfect backdrop for relaxation and shared moments. Walking hand in hand along the beach, enjoying the warm sun, and taking a dip in the sea together made for cherished memories. The beach's beauty was matched by the friendly locals and the vibrant atmosphere of the area. Varadero Beach proved to be an ideal destination for a memorable getaway for two.

    Another trip to Grand Memories Varadero
    A pretty good visit in October. Check in on arrival was the quickest it has ever been. A fair amount of work to improved the grounds has been done since our last visit at the end of summer. Buffet was typical, the a la carte retaurants were quite good. Service seemed to have gotten better. Quite a list of staff to recognize. Lily at the Gensing restaurant provided great service. The whole group at the pool bar - Disney, Rene, Alex and Julio were friendly and quick with refills. At the buffet, Melissa, Reinier, Rigoberto and Arelys were always keeping busy and we had what we needed. Duniel at the beach bar always greeted us with a smile and small talk. And the team in the lobby always worked well with each other helping each other and taking time to talk with the customers. Leidy, Mabel, Darlay, Yohamel, Louis, Niurkis, Beatriz and Michel were always attentive and had a warm greeting each time we saw them. Danai always had a great smile on her face and remembered us from a previous visit. And Coca whenever he saw us always asked how we are doing and if everything is alright. And then there's Dayan, the fellow who would exchange the beach towels if there were any. He always had a smile on his face and had plenty of time to talk with us. This was one of our better visits here.

    One of the Caribbean's best
    The beach is definitely the best thing about Varadero. Every aspect of it is excellent and it was a joy to walk several miles along it. Swimmers need to look out for jellyfish and observe the red flag warning when in force. But the sea is a beautiful shade of turquoise and having been lucky enough to experience several Caribbean beaches I can attest that this is one of the best.

    Nice beach area
    Absolutely beautiful beach with several good restaurants and bars nearby. Nice swimming area for families and children with water slide. Offers snorkeling, which was fun. Pleasant place to spend the day.

    Varadero Beach: A Spectacular Underwater Adventure
    One of the best experiences in Varadero Beach was snorkeling in its vibrant waters. The marine life is simply stunning, with colorful fish and coral reefs that seem to come alive before your eyes. Swimming alongside these majestic creatures was a surreal experience I'll never forget. Renting a car in Cuba further deepened my connection to the island's beauty.

This visit was much different than our last visit to this resort. We understand that Cuba is under hardship and experiencing shortages, but the trip prices should reflect the services that are being offered. The resort is so nicely kept, the beds are comfortable, the beach is so beautiful, and the pool was pristine. Bar staff were INCREDIBLE and did their best to find a drink you would like. There was no shortage of draft beer, no canned beer, no sodas. There was a lack of nighttime entertainment, but the staff kept things fun during the day. We will return to Cuba, but we are going to explore other resorts. We were disappointed that we weren't recognized as repeat guests. :(

Varadero looked like an amazing dream beach each day, always with different shades of blue that enchant, it doesn't seem real that a beach so big and magical exists.

Talking about the beach by itself, the most beautiful beach in the world is Varadero, in the Matanzas province, in Cuba.

The beach is over rated! Yes, the water is pretty blues, but the shore is sharp w broken shells and tiny rocks. Once you get past that, it’s sandy. This time of year, the beach is infested with Portuguese man O’ war. I was stung, so there’s that. The water was also chilly and quite high waves. It was yellow or red flags most days. When it was green flag, the waters were beautifully calm, but I still saw jelly sacs floating around, so I got out of there! I guess depending on where you stay, the beach may or may not be clean. The sargassum is very smelly. Also, many tourists are quite dirty, leaving their cigarette butts, plastic cups and other trash dumped around. I stayed at the Meliá Peninsula Veradero AI resort. It wasn’t a great experience. Maybe other resorts clean the beach front, but this one does not. I’ll be glad to get home tomorrow.
