The wide range of offers in Cuba's leisure industry, including cultural programs, and nature, adventure and health tourism, is mainly based on sun and beach options, a key element in the development of the tourist sector.
Cuban tourism authorities take advantage of the Island's hundreds of excellent beaches that invite vacationers to enjoy their white sand and crystal clear water.
In the world-renowned coastal resort of Varadero, in western Matanzas province, the Mercure Coralia Cuatro Palma Hotel is an excellent choice for the thousands of foreign travelers who visit that destination to enjoy the beach.
Owned by the Cuban hotel group Gran Caribe, the establishment is located by the beach and is characterized by a peculiar look that grants the hotel unique elegance and distinction among dozens of facilities in Varadero.
The hotel perfectly combines its Spanish colonial architectural style with excellent services, including options to meet the needs of the most demanding guests, as today's tourism demands.
The presence of arches, stained-color glasses, columns and railings, in combination with exuberant vegetation, allows creating a panorama of urban comfort in a typical beach context in the largest Antillean Island.
The Cuatro Palmas Hotel also benefits from the services provided by Varadero's Juan Gualberto Gómez International Airport, which is located 25 kilometers away, thus facilitating foreign travelers' access to the facility.
The hotel has 312 rooms, including 160 doubles, seven suites, 23 cabins and 122 bungalows, equipped with all modern amenities, including air conditioning, cable TV, minibar and telephone, among others.
In addition to being close to an excellent beach strip, an ideal place for those who prefer a refreshing swim in Varadero's warm blue waters, the hotel provides other services such as the bars Las Olas and Coralia, and a rich gastronomic offer at the restaurants Las Palmas and El Ranchón.
The establishment is administered by the French group Accor, which gives the hotel a peculiar touch and keeps a perfect harmony with traditions and local construction materials.
A wide range of options turns Accor into a multi-brand group whose establishments operate under the names of Novotel and Sofitel, as well as Mercure, Ibis, Motel 6, Red Roof Inn, Parthenon, Coralia and Suitehotel.
According to experts, the presence of different brands responds to a strategy aimed at covering several market segments, providing specific offers to meet clients' demands.
