If you don't mind animals on the resort and old rooms with musty smells - then go ahead and take the better deal here. I found the food fine, and I'm vegetarian. Still lots of options. The service was not good - i was always scrambling to get my fork, knife, napkin, asking for water, wine, etc. But its 2...

Here is a long review of my solo stay at Mar Del Sur from February 4-11, 2017. Check In: I arrived around 10:30 a.m. Check in was easy, and I was told that my room would be ready by 4, but maybe earlier. I used the bathroom in the lobby which was disgusting honestly but hey, welcome to Cuba! I...

My return to this hotel was mainly because I liked it well enough, for the price, when I visited, 3 years ago. Here are the PROS and CONS. Enjoy! By the way, I never ever in my life switched a room in Varadero, but this time I did. Reason being: no phone, no tv working, and the door lock wouldn't...

This is the worst hotel I have ever been to. The experience there basically ruined my vacation impression. We booked the hotel only because our agent could not find us casa particular in Varadero for the period and we were short on time and budget and the we were in a rush. And I regret this deeply. 1. When we...

We’ve been returning to Hotel Mar Del Sur every winter for the past five years….why? Because it is probably the best value you will find on the Varadero peninsula. Because it is charming and comfortable without being pretentious. Because the staff are fantastic – they can’t do enough to try to accommodate your wishes. Looking forward to seeing our Mar...

We booked this being sure that on the agency we booked through it said it was a 3 star, but turned out to be a 2, which is fine. Air Transat told us it had wifi, but you had to purchase a prepaid card for 2 pesos, for an hour of wifi, which was fine too. We were also told...

We stayed here for one night having spent a couple of days travelling around Cuba. Given the price we paid CUC96 all inclusive, you can stay in a Casa for a third of the price in much better conditions. Where to begin... the first room we were given was room 309 in Block 18. The bathroom hadn't been cleaned with...
