    Just to let anyone who wants to know about the hotel Tryp Peninsula in Varadero.
    The hotel is fairly new having opened in July 2001.
    The food was the best that I've had for Cuban foods. They had the regular buffets plus a Cuban restaurant part of the all inclusive package. The food at the Cuban restaurant was spectacular. There was also an Italian counterpart.

    The beach was really great with lots of shade for those who need it with man-made hut umbrellas. Close by was the all-inclusive beach bar/lunch grill. What was great was that they had beach activities during the day, like beach games in addition to volleyball, and in the afternoon some entertainment in the beach bar, plus dance lessons at 5pm.

    The hotel accomodations were also the best that I have seen for Varadero. The rooms were kept well and clean. They accomodated a shower for the North Americans plus a bathtub with hand shower for the Europeans. They also had a dressing room and an inroom safe. The outside was washed daily and the landscaping looked after daily.

    The entertainment was of good quality, and they had a 24 hour bar open plus a disco, but the disco wasn't happening. For after 11 nightlife it was best to hop into a $6US taxi and go to one of the clubs in the Core like La Bamba, Mambo, or Havana Club.

    I would definitely return.
