Iberostar hotels in Cuba ready for influx of American travellers

After news that a civil aviation agreement has finally been signed by Cuban and American government officials, companies in the hotel industry are keen to benefit from the influx of American tourists expected to arrive in Cuba in the near future.

Commercial flights to Cuba could start as early as autumn this year, and while the island's infrastructure is not yet ready for a surge in American tourists, one hotel group already has 11 hotels in Cuba.

Iberostar has been operating hotels in Cuba since 1988, and the properties are dotted across the island in renowned destinations like the capital Havana, as well as lesser-known spots such as Cayo Guillermo.

In December, 2015, the hotel group opened the Iberostar Playa Pilar Hotel on the small island of Cayo Guillermo that is part of the Jardines del Rey.

The all-inclusive beachfront resort is located just half an hour from the airport, and it has 450 guest rooms and suites. The property caters for families and has a variety of child-friendly facilities including a waterpark, kid's pool, and mini club. Parents can also enjoy some down time at the large wellness centre, which offers massages, hot springs, yoga, tai chi, and a sauna.

Guests of all ages can enjoy group games, dance lessons, aerobics, aqua-gym, sports, themed parties and barbecues, and there are four restaurants that offer international cuisine.

Visitors heading to Havana can stay in Iberostar's Parque Central hotel in the centre of the capital city. The property has 427 guest rooms, and a rooftop swimming pool a buffet-style restaurant, two speciality restaurants, bars with live Cuban music, and a tranquil spa.

Later this year, Iberostar will open the brand new Iberostar Bella Vista located in Varadero. The five-star beachfront hotel will have 827 guest rooms and suites, and will have accommodation sections for both families and adults.

Varadero is located in the province of Matanzas on the Hicacos Peninsula on the north coast of the Caribbean island. The region is one of the most popular destinations for holidays in Cuba with more than 20km of pristine white sand beaches and several luxury beachfront Cuba resorts and hotels.
