Best mid-priced All Inclusive beach resort to see Havana?

Postby acv » Fri Nov 11, 2005 1:41 pm

Hi there,
We're looking for some advice on what area of Cuba and which AI beach resorts are best to stay at in order to easily see Havana on our own. We're planning to go between Christmas and New Year's and looking for something under 1800 per person with taxes included (a 4 star +).

We were thinking of Breezes Jibacoa but it is sold out :(
so we're back to the drawing board...

We're a married couple in our mid thirties and we're looking for a combo of R&R, maybe snorkelling and city site-seeing. We don't really care for loud disco/party scenes.... any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

Beach Resort Near Habana

Postby Steve-YYZ » Sat Nov 12, 2005 5:49 pm

One of the problems with Havana is that other than Jibacoa, there are not a lot of other "Beach" resorts close by. To get another 4*, you will have to go as far as Varadero.

Another alternative would be to take a very nice 4* or 5* in Havana itself, and then travel out to the beaches to swim.

If you decide to go for a 3*, you can get a reasonable beach resort at Blau Club Arenal, Hotel, Playa Santa María del Mar. La Habana del Este. This is just outside Guanabo and would put you within a $15CUC taxi ride from Havana. You'd have your beach resort and the close proximity to Havana you're looking for. It's actually closer to Havana than Jibacoa.

Here's a link to the Blau to give you an idea of the hotel.

Hope this gives some better idea of what will fit your requirements. Havana is a wonderful city to explore. You'll be glad you didn't miss it.

Rodraad thinks Varadero is fine for visits to Havana

(rodraad knows he is going to get it: but anyways, rodraad found Breezes Jibacoa to be geared to an older clientele and boring (this has also been confirmed to rodraad by people in their thirties who visited this resort))

You have the opportunity to visit Havana through guided tours and hoping on a local bus from central Varadero

Though rodraad recommends a tour as Havana is a hectic city with so much good stuff to see

Good mid price resort Breezes Varadero
