Restaurants & bars
As you would expect from an all inclusive resort in Varadero, there is a variety of drinking and dining options, suitable for all tastes.
For an entertaining dinner and mouth-watering Japanese dishes, you should give the teppanyaki restaurant Sakura a try. Italian cuisine is served at Stella di Mare while Cuban and international treats can be found at the main buffet restaurant Ara.
Those looking for a romantic atmosphere and gourmet international fare should head to Turey restaurant – an intimate venue where musicians play as you dine.
An afternoon or evening barbecue is a fantastic experience and can be enjoyed at the laid-back grill El Chiringuito, which is located just steps from the beautiful beach.
The gourmet eatery Bellamar has an air of exclusively about it as it is solely for the use of Royal Service guests.
The nine bars (three exclusively for Royal Service guests), including the swim-up pool bar Toa, the charming beach bar Carabo, and the pool side snack bar Cairi which is open all day every day, provide relaxing spots to enjoy a sundowner or live entertainment. Royal Service guests can enjoy refreshing beverages served from the pool-side bar RincónFrancés, lobby bar La Notteor the Royal Service beach bar.
The resort features a baby club for 1-4 year olds, open 9am-5pm; a mini club for 5-12 year olds, open 10am-5pm; and a hobby club for teenagers, open 9am-11pm.
The Paradisus Varadero is a great choice for families with baby, kids and teens club. We recommend upgrading to one of the Family Concierge suites. Located in a dedicated area of the resort, these rooms extend the 'Royal Service' concept to those travelling with younger guests. There is a dedicated family lounge as well as exclusive kids' and adult's pools and a private beach area. On arrival children will receive a beach kit which includes a backpack, cap, sun cream and an inflatable. Even the turn down service is tailored to children with a small glass of milk and two cookies for each child at bedtime.
One immersion dive is included each day from Monday to Saturday. This includes equipment, boat (reservations required and subject to availability). Personalised service for beginners and certified divers is provided. Introductory dive lessons are held in the swimming pool every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9.30am to 1pm. Clients with an international scuba diving licence must show it while booking the service at the hotel's scuba diving centre.
