Hotel Roc Barlovento Located at the beginning of Varadero Strip June 8th – June 12th, 2018 Ambiance My girlfriend Fernanda and I arrived around 11:30 pm and my first impression of this hotel at night was a disappointing one. It was small, simple, basic and very unassuming. The reception desk to the left looked outdated and the bar to the right was crowded and the air was stale and full of smoke.
