Elegantly sombre, this hotel is, to a large extent, the one that best represents typical Varadero. Gardens, strong walls of light colors and red tiles stand out against the background of a sea that shows surprising shades of blue and vegetation that resembles an oasis of greenness. The hotel is located on the spot where the Hicacos Peninsula pushes out into the sea, precisely at the point where the beach begins--among the best in the world. It's about two hours from Havana and 25 minutes from Varadero's International Airport. You have a view of the beach from most of its rooms, giving you the opportunity to enjoy its beautiful sunny days and the smell of the sea.
