Cuba has become immensely popular among travellers looking for 18+ and “adults only” all-inclusive resorts. ABC News rated one of Cuba’s adults-only resort — Royalton’s Cayo Santa Maria — the top all-inclusive resort in the world.
But, Cuba also has world-class resorts for the entire family. For parents hoping to enjoy the soft white sand and tranquil turquoise seas spilling onto Cuba’s shores with their children and the grandparents, there are dozens of can’t-miss options, but five surpass the others.
5. Paradisus Rio del Oro
Worrying about having enough to do at Paradisus Rio del Oro won’t ever be a problem. The Paradisus is a family-friendly, large-scale resort. It has more than 350 rooms. Of those rooms, 70 percent are “junior suites,” all of which have a balcony or terrace. There are seven restaurants on the grounds.
The resort is designed to give kids room and parents space.
4. Melia Las Dunas Hotel
With almost 1,000 rooms spread out over 77 two-story bungalows, the Melia Las Dunas is a mega resort. It has 17 restaurants on the grounds, playgrounds, arcades, ice cream parlous and a kid’s club.
For adults, there is a hair salon, a wedding pavilion and a beer garden.
3. Royalton Hicacos Varadero Resort & Spa
Not the biggest or the most family-oriented, but it is a Cuban all-inclusive resort at its best. A walkway around and through the entire resort that rests over a meandering river motif; big and luxurious buildings, rooms and suits; and a softness thanks to the peace and quiet at the Hicacos Varadero make it a unique resort.
The food and service are outstanding, as are the views. With spas, restaurants and cocktail bars at every turn, the Hicacos Varadero is spectacular.
2. Iberostar Ensenachos
It is fair to argue that the difference between a four- and five-star resort is the service, but if a person were to only use the beauty of a resort’s grounds, the quality of the infrastructure and the luxuriousness of the rooms; it would be impossible to call the Ensenachos anything less than five-star.
From the traditional Cuban architecture — big entrances, vaulted ceilings, arches and columns — to its state-of-the-art children’s water park, the Ensenacho is one of Cuba’s best family-friendly resorts.
1. Iberostar Varadero
Shallow water lagoon pools spread throughout the grounds; domed pavilions, bodegas and casitas to hide under from the sun; and Spanish architecture that is fine down to the smallest detail make the Iberostar Varadero the most exceptional all-inclusive, family friendly resort in Cuba.
Every aspect of the Iberostar Varadero is worth a luxurious remark.
Visiting one of Cuba’s all-inclusive, family-friendly resorts and visiting the beaches and surrounding towns will change your perception of one of the world’s most famous island countries.
