The Iberostar Bella Costa In Varadero – Cuba

My wife and I recently enjoyed a wonderful 2 week vacation at this resort, from our home in Canada.
Iberostar Bella Costa – Our Stay
Below is a detailed review of the resort and what you can expect when booking your all inclusive beach vacation at this Iberostar resort.
Upon arrival at the hotel, we were warmly greeted by reception and the hotel manager, welcoming us to the hotel.
A refreshing tropical drink was served at check in as well!
We were quickly checked in and our luggage was taken to our guest room by a porter.
