Posted July 28, 2003 by publisher in Cuba Travel.


Havana.- The Cuban beach resort of Varadero, one of the Island’s major tourist destinations, is benefiting from a long-term expansion program.

Tourist authorities in western Matanzas province pointed out that Varadero would have 26,000 hotel rooms for international tourism by 2010.
At present, that coastal resort has 14,000 rooms in 50 hotels, over 70 percent of which are four- and five-star establishments, and many of which are true gardens due to the combination of internal and external green areas and the construction design.

The experts added that four hotels, totaling 1,600 rooms, would be completed in Varadero in 2004.

New brands such as Gran Lido, which belongs to the Jamaican chain SuperClubs, and Palace, owned by the Spanish consortium Iberostar, as well as Bahía Príncipe, a property of the Spanish company Piñero, which will run the Varadero 1920 hotel, will start operating in the Cuban resort in 2004.
