About The Hotel

Varadero’s beaches are some of the best in the Caribbean and the All Inclusive Paradisus Varadero is located on an ecological reserve overlooking a large stretch of fine white sand on Punta Frances Beach, a short distance from Gaviota Marina and dolphin centre. There are several pools, walk-ways with terraces and gardens, pergolas, palapas and water features which will encourage you to spend very little time in your room! The resort has separate children’s pools and play areas and the daily Club Amigo offers lots of fun activities. In addition to the family rooms and suites in the main building, there are large Garden Villas with private pools.

The impressive array of facilities make the resort ideal for active families. There are five swimming pools in total, including two at the spa, and the main pool is located close to the beach with a splash area, shaded children’s section as well as a bar, sun loungers and games at the Club House. The the YHI-Spa is located overlooking the Varahicacos ecological reserve with views of the sea and offers a wide range of treatments as well as a hydrothermal circuit with steam sauna, Bali shower, Jacuzzis,  rain showers and watsu pool.
