I learned a new Spanish word Alameda which means tree-lined avenue. At the Iberostar Alameda, Varadero the tree-lined avenue runs straight through the center of the resort. A beautiful boulevard with water fountains and cafes inspired by some of Cuba’s famous historical boulevards.

Beach at Iberostar Playa Alameda

The Iberostar Almeda Beach

Like all Varadero hotels, the Iberostar Almeda has an impressive beach. The huts are spaced far enough apart to give you some space under the shade and a little privacy from your neighbour. The resort’s animation team spent the morning on the beach getting guests to participate in some beach activities and then moved to the main pool.

Iberostar Alameda Pools

You will find pools along both sides of the main boulevard in the centre of the property. The pools have water features, are surrounded by beach chairs with a few shady escapes. Personally, I would have liked to see more shade in the form of umbrellas around the pool.

The resort also has a children’s pool and play area as part of their kid’s club. This is a smaller and quieter space for families with small children.
