    Casa très agréable mais trop éloignée du centre de Varadero qui nécessite l'utilisation de taxis à des tarifs prohibitifs

    Un excellent séjour dans cette charmante casa avec une magnifique vue et un excellent déjeuner, dans une petite ville tout aussi charmante ! Une hôtesse attentionnée et accueillante, une chambre magnifique qui dispose de tout ! Je vous la recommande !

    Si buscas un hotal cerca de una bonita playa y en un lugar tranquilo es ideal, si buscas amiente, restaurantes o bares cercanos no es el sitio, quedan como a 20 minutos en taxi.

    Cute place near a small beach

    Cute place, with a very nice terrace near a small and untouristic beach. The people a very nice and they make some delicious food :) We really enjoyed our stay and it is nice if you want to see varadero but don't actually want to stay in such a crowded place.
