The hotel was inaugurated on Christmas Eve 1950. Built in the solid but elegant architectural style of that period, it still preserves the spirit of those years. The hotel's lobby area is large and open, providing stupendous views and direct access to the beach. On offer are a total of 162 rooms spread across six floors. The hotel has beautiful gardens, and the facilities on offer include a bar, a laundry service (charges apply), parking for those arriving by car, and a kid's club. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner buffets are offered at the Antillano restaurant, while the Universal restaurant presents guests with a range of international cuisine, and the Italiano restaurant serves cooking from Italy. The ""Continental"" cabaret offers excellent dinners with a colourful show with truly infectious rhythms. This nostalgic optional activity will make for one of the best nights in Varadero.
The hotel is located directly beside the beach in the best part of Varadero. Guests will reach the centre of Matanzas in about 2 km, while it is approximately 30 km to Varadero International Airport.
