Adults only will attract couples and adults looking for a resort without screaming kids running around.

I took my Mom on vacation a few years ago and stayed at an adults only.

Adults only Resorts cater to adults (in the food, entertainment, amenities).

I would still do an adults only. There's a difference between "couples" resorts and adults only. The only couples Resorts that come to mind in Cuba would be the Royalton.

If your going to cuba and want a more active atmosphere look at the Barcelo Solymar.

Barcelo Solymar is family - oriented though.
The pics of Paradiscus (family) and Paradiscus Princesa (adult) look amazing though, albeit a bit more expensive.

Yes, adult places are where adults can be adults.
But several quiet high-star small adult places are too
quiet and too small for adult life.

big 4-star adult resorts -- probably more interesting for
single -- more chances to find somebody to socialize.

Also, barmen know most of single people around.

It's not. It is known as the "party resort" of Varadero. Head to trip advisor for more info. The resort has tried to shake that reputation but it won't happen. They allow kids but I would never take a kid there.

Paradisus Varadero is def family oriented. It will be quiet.

Paradisus Princesa Del Mar is geared to couples.

(Stayed at both of them in the past)

unless its a kid oriented resort, it doesn't matter that much, some of the adults are more annoying then the kids, when we went to Cuba, it was 75% people from Quebec, talk about rude, they are very pushy in the buffets.

If you're staying at the Solymar. Bring your own food, that place is a sespool but it's a lot of fun if you're looking to have FUN.

Singles are almost always outnumbered by couples in Varadero. I wouldn’t worry about children. Even during the various winter/spring school holidays in Canada and Europe, which are by the way staggered, they will be outnumbered by adults. Varadero ain’t Orlando and there are rarely airline rebates for kids (whereas filling the back seat of a car is essentially free).

The crowds will vary by the season. The more expensive the time of year, the more likely the rooms will be full, be it with adults or children. If there is no single supplement (in November or May for example), there will be plenty of single people, but couples will still vastly outnumber them.

That being said, Varadero caters to everyone. Couples, singles, singles with children, extended family vacations, wedding parties, seniors. Basically it is similar to the crowd you’d find at a beach outside of town in Canada on a summer’s day, but with fewer children.

The beaches at the south end with road access are open to the public. There are public toilets inland. The resorts usually have bars on the beach with security.
Toronto is a very small part of Canada
