Hit the Beach

With its Glistening Sand and Luxury Hotels, Varadero Harks Back to Cuba's Glory Days
Thomas Matthews
From the Print Edition:
The Cuba Issue, May/Jun 99

(continued from page 2)

The resort is modeled after a village, with low-rise buildings sheltered by palm trees. The suites are small and simple, and most are only steps from the beach. Meal options include a cozy Italian restaurant and a huge, hangar-like buffet. There's even a grill on the beach where hot dogs and hamburgers sizzle. Club Varadero doesn't offer the luxury or service of the Meliá hotels, but its food is no worse and it fits more snugly into the landscape. Rates range from $125 to $185 a person a day, depending on the season and the size of the suite.
