Volley On The Puntarena Hotel Beach
Hotel Puntarena is a good choice for anyone seeking an idyllic, activity-filled Cuban getaway at inexpensive cost, & should appeal especially to families.
Located on the beach & at the entrance of the canal to the west of Varadero, Puntarena is a fair distance from the strip but this is compensated by great facilities & fabulous views. Staff are friendly & accommodating, especially the maids who always leave beautiful towel & sheet art in rooms.
Puntarena hotel has a great range of activities & one of the biggest swimming pools in the Varadero area, as well as a separate children’s pool. Leisure activities include a gym, sauna, pool/billiards tables, aerobics, tennis, cycling, volleyball & non-motorised water sports. In addition to on site mini golf, there is also an 18-hole course nearby (for an extra charge). There is plenty to do by day at Puntarena & also great shows in the evening.
Accommodation is on an all-inclusive basis & Puntarena has a buffet restaurant, snack bar & 2 a la carte restaurants (serving international & Italian food). The food is good but there is often limited variety. The hotel also has 3 bars & a nightclub.
Although a little tired & outdated, Puntarena provides everything needed for a great holiday in one site & is a low-cost destination that should appeal to travellers of all backgrounds, especially families.
