Cuba has no end of delights for those planning a family trip away – whether you want to explore the island’s picturesque setting, beautiful beaches, or fascinating history, there’s something for everyone. If you’re visiting Cuba with children and want to know where to stay, take a look at our pick of the best spots around.
The beach town of Varadero is arguably Cuba‘s most famous among holidaymakers. This 574-room hotel has great swimming pools, plenty of dining options, plus daycare clubs for children of varying ages. Leave the kids to play, and relax in the ocean-view infinity pool for a few hours before enjoying a meal together.
Another great option in Varadero, Breezes Bella Costa is a four-star property that offers all-inclusive stays. There are great activities for children and teenagers, and you can book family suites or interconnecting rooms depending on your preference.
If you like the look of Holguin, this all-inclusive property is another top choice for families. There’s evening entertainment, kids’ clubs, and five swimming pools, in addition to a lovely stretch of beach just outside the property. Connecting rooms are available for those with older children.
Northern Cuba is full of great beaches, and Cayo Coco is rapidly turning into a favourite destination with visitors. Known for its top food, Tryp Cayo Coco has good a la carte restaurants – families with adolescents will love the teenage centre, where youngsters can make new friends.
Stay at Memories and you’ll be on one of the best bits of Varadero beach. There’s a baby club, a kids’ club, and supervised games for teenagers, as well as evening shows for all the family to enjoy. Family suites can fit up to four people.
Just 20 km (12.4 miles) from downtown Havana, Hotel Atlantico is perfectly placed for those who want to combine a beach holiday with some city sightseeing. There’s a free bus to get you into the city, but the fine white sand is equally welcoming. Enjoy the swimming pool, tennis courts and games room, before settling in for the evening entertainment.
