Perhaps I'm spoiled but I don't understand the rave reviews about the food at this place. It was my third and last visit to Cuba. Food was mediocre at best. Line-ups to get into buffet restaurant. Tons of rocks on the beach. Mini-bar gets replenished every TWO days. My daughter spilled some chocolate milk on the bed sheets - same...

I would first like to say, any person who has a bad review of this place must have had way too much rum. My husband and I along with our kids travel every 6-8 months and this was our first time in Cuba. Upon arrival we had the most flawless check-in process ever.. We did have to wait for our...

The First Choice brochure said this was their best hotel in Varadero and I'd say they were not wrong. From the minute we arrived to the moment we had to say good-bye we had a great time.
