Value in Varadero
My wife and I will be going to Kawama for the fifth time this January. We stayed at Brisas our second year. We find the location and value for the dollar superior at Kawama. After you have been there once you can get a room upgrade, complimentary bottle of rum, lobster dinner and easier bookings at the a la carte restaurants. Go to the hotel web site kawamahotel.cu and click on the upper left and you'll find these extras. All the reviews indicate lack of spices and seasonings on the resort food but the downtown restaurants do a much better job. Take your own seansonings and salad dressing. Save a little boiled egg, cheese and onion from breakfast, put it in your room fridge and dress up your lunch and dinner salads. Being old the rooms frequently have a musty smell. Take a couple air fresheners. Take a few hats, t-shirts and other gifts as tips. I left my umbrella there last year which I took with me as a cane substitute and umbrella. It was greatly appreciated. Take insulated drink cups as the cups they give you don't hold very much. I also will sometimes fill up one of them with vanilla ice cream at lunch and add it to their pina coladas later in the afternoon. If you book through one of the last minute web travel sites you can get a comparatively low price for what you get at Kawama compared to the other two Varadero hotels we've stayed at. They get a LOT of repeat customers who have learned the ropes.
