Riu Turquesa, Varadero, Cuba?

Does anybody have any experiences to share about the Riu Turquesa (sp?) hotel in Varadero, Cuba? I am looking for a nice all-inclusive, but with Villa or Bungalow accomodation, and this one seems to fit the bill.

Thanks!

Hi Renee, you could check out the Riu web site at www.riuhotels.com then go to the forum area to see what they say.
I have never been to the Riu chain but am going this spring, I have chosen the Riu Las Morlas for 2 weeks. I don't think you can go wrong with the chain.
Have a good holiday! Larry

Thanks for the info Larry!

I have tried the site, but each link opens up another set of frames with the same top and side banner. Inside an ever-shrinking frame, I am unable finally to see what I want to see. I don't know who designed it but it's a dog!

Oh well, I guess I'll just have to wing it, or try elsewhere.

Renee, I can't understand why the site will not work for you. It works evertime for me. If you want I can cut and paste information from that site onto here. Let me know.
Have a good one.

Yes, please!! If you can even give me the exact URL of the page for Riu Turquesa, I could go directly there.

The site works for me, but it opens with a top banner that covers half the screen. Each link I click opens another top banner that covers more of the screen, and finally I can't see anything..... harumf.

Renee, I found one comment about the hotel but there is an e-mail address where you could contact these people. There is no web page for that hotel, you must go to the main site, and yes it sucks. Message from that site as follows

I recently returned from a holiday at the hotel Riu Turquesa with my family and friends and i would just like to say thanks for a great time.
The staff were really friendly, and we made great friends with many of the entertainment team, Jensi/ Jorge/ Ernesto, in particular.
Once again thanks and i'll look forward to making a return visit!!!

**************************************** I hope this helps some. The hotel is a distance from town and not on the main Varadero beach. You could also look at Sol Palmeras, they have bungalows and a terrific beach. We will be trying the Riu Las Morlas, but this is a hotel only. Better book something soon before it is too late.
Have a good one!

Thanks again Larry! I had not planned to book for a while because I am having a hard time deciding, and thought I just might wait to see what comes on sale last minute.....fly by the seat of my pants, so to speak!! Have a great trip!
