Top-Rated Cuban All-Inclusive Resorts to Get You Through the Winter

Have a look at these six excellently-rated Cuba all-inclusive resorts that have guests hollering ¡Viva Cuba!

Cuba is synonymous with the sun to Canadians and there is no more loved way of soaking in the Vitamin D than a good all-inclusive. For years, Canucks have been loyal to the sandy stretches of Varadero, Cayo Coco, Santa Lucia and Guardalavaca and the affordable resorts that make a Cuban getaway all the more easy to fall for.

If you take a leaf out of the trivago user’s travel book, you’d be one to check our user reviews through and through before booking yourself into a week away. What could be more trustworthy than hearing from other Canadians who’ve given their thumbs upto the breakfast buffet, sipped their way through perfectly-mixed mojitos and checked the boxes for strong WiFi, reliable air-con, and comfy beds?

A Top Rated All-Inclusive Cuban Resort in the Heart of Varadero

1/4

Billed as an “ultra all-inclusive,” this five-star Paradisus outpost is on a mission to pamper guests in style at this adults-only resort. Lobster for dinner, nightly entertainment including a water ballet, and 24-hour food and beverage service at the Racquet Club are just some of the highlights of this property.

Opt for the Royal Service which pairs wonderfully with a Garden Swim-up Junior Suiteand includes perks like round-the-clock butler service, an exclusive swimming pool, beach and beach bar, in-room spa experiences (from Equilibrium to Purple Grape) and unlimited golfing.

An Adult-Only 5-Star All Inclusive Resort to Make the Most of Varadero's Laid Back Beach Style

1/4

A favourite for Varadero loyalists, the Meliá Las Americas is a five-star paradise perhaps owing to the serenity offered by their 18-plus policy. For sporty types, be sure to schedule your catamaran trip, scuba excursion and tee time at the nearby Varadero Golf Club on your trip south.

An emphasis on service keeps visitors to Varadero coming back to Las Americas. You’ll likely get a personal greeting from General Manager Bernard Meyer who is happy to check in on your stay and lend an ear to any feedback.

Put in your reservations early for La Arcada where trivago users suggest coming with your classical music requests for the string quartet. That will be Four Seasons by Vivaldi with the lobster bisque, por favor.

A Family-Friendly All Inclusive Cuban Resort

1/4

Sunsets on beaches and sushi for dinner; shimmering pools and drinks for the liver; and comfortable beds where you don’t feel the springs. These are a few of our favourite things — at the Iberostar Varadero.

Spa experiences, a killer water park for kids and lively evening shows are on the list, too.  Lastly, we hear from newlyweds that the Iberostar is a dream when it comes to throwing together a memorable destination wedding in CubaJust saying…

An Adult-Only All Inclusive Hotel in Central Cuba

Take the edge off the island heat with a cool wade in Meliá Cayo Coco‘s lagoon pool. Whether you choose a deck chair under the shade of a palm or a canopied sunbed, users are telling us a crisp mojito is the poolside compliment.

Direct access to this adults-only fine sand beach means that you can spend hours on end working on your golden shimmer with intermittent cuts to floating in the sea, snorkeling with the fishies and grabbing a bite at the Beach Bar. Users love Las Coloradas Beach for its calm waters and lunch fresh from the grill whether it be pork ribs or whole sea bream.

An All-Inclusive Resort in the Centre of Cuba That Promises Fun for All the Family

1/4

After an airport transfer due north from Holguín, check yourself straight into some R&R at the Sol Río de Luna y Mares right on Playa Esmeralda. This four-star all-inclusive has won the hearts of past guests with a loyal following of annual returnees looking to return to their own piece of paradise.

A combination of themed nights (white night and retro night, for example), reliable à la carte and buffet options and crystal clear waters for snorkeling paint this picture of sunny utopia.

The resort staff are happy to arrange off-resort excursions such as local village visits, meeting baby crocodiles at the zoo and horseback riding on the beach. But save room for eats back at the Sol Río. The must-try dish of your stay: calamari on the beach.

A Serene All Inclusive Resort in Cuba with Plenty of Quiet Areas

1/4

The island paradise to an island nation, Cayo Largo measures just 25 kilometers across and completes this postcard vision with technicolored coral reefs, the finest of white sand and a few nudist beaches that throw this cayo back to the time of Eden.

As one of just six hotels on the island, Sol Cayo Largo remains the top-rated choice for trivago users thanks to its stellar location and amenities (from the spa to catamaran excursions). Start each day with made-to-order crepes before staking out your spot on Playa Sirena or Paraiso where the water is so clear that you can admire the native starfishes all without dunking your head in.
