Iberostar Tainos details
A plush retreat just seconds from the beach, the Iberostar Tainos is designed with relaxation in mind.
Set on the edge of Varadero beach, this renovated hotel impresses from the off. Aside from the fact it’s set in private gardens and just seconds from the sand, it offers up a great pool, too. It’s a lagoon-like number fringed by a wide sun terrace dotted with loungers. And if that all sounds a little too laidback, there’s a great range of watersports on offer over at the beach.
As for the hotel itself, it’s been designed to capture the essence of old Caribbean charm – think bright yellow and blue walls, terracotta-coloured rooftops and white picket-fenced balconies. Head inside, and bedrooms come simply dressed, with tiled floors, white walls and painted wooden furniture. What’s more, there’s a selection of bungalows on offer, too. Tucked in among the greenery, they’re a great option if you need a little more space. And, wherever you choose to stay, modern trimmings like air-conditioning, satellite TVs and mini-fridges come as standard.
Lastly, there’s the dining scene to consider. Head to the main restaurant, where stainless steel and chunky wooden furniture provide a contemporary backdrop for big international buffets. Or pull up a chair at the à la carte eatery and pick and choose from a selection of authentic Cuban fare. There’s a Japanese restaurant, too, plus a lobby bar that serves up light bites throughout the day. For a front row seat at sunset, however, it’s got to be the beach bar – it’s right on the sand and overlooks the Caribbean Sea.
