Good,bad food in Varadero European-ownedresorts?

Jump to last reply

We are utterly confused about pos and neg reviews of varadero resosrts on tripadvisor.com.
I've been to Havana and was violently ill after the trip.
Which hotel food is very good? which ones to avoid?

Which chains importtheir food/oils from abroad?It's the pork lard that makes the food inedible in virtually all restaurants.

Even if ownership is European , that doesn't garantee that the food is taken seriously.

I know even spanish chains are half owned by Cuban tourism consortium.

Cuban owned chains: Gran Caribe, cubacana etc

German: Blau and superclub Breezes????
Jamaican:Sandals and Beaches(also cuban partnership)
Spanish:Sol/Melias/TRYP/paridissus are all the same co. RUi has bad press from its Dominica Republic Bachata in puerto Plata where many got ill.
French:Accor vacances
Utalian:tuxpan changed hands in dec 2004

Please correct my assumptions or any changes in ownership. which ones are good? bad? food-wise. food is subjective...so that no lard atste i am asking about...bland ,anything that makes you VIOLENTLY ill type of experience.Rice and beans are ok if it's lardtasting-free


What did 1990s Paradiso turn into ? that was awful...

Thus far:
Oasis horizontes, Villa Cuba and Club Magia- cuban ownership have been reviewed by frds as very terible food.
