We stayed at the paradisus Princesa Del Mar for our honeymoon and we had a blast! We took private car from the airport to the resort with authentic Cuban tours. Highly recommend this as your room most likely won’t be ready until after 4pm. This gives you time to get to the hotel change into some comfortable clothes and check out the resort. Since we arrived early we were waiting for our room and were greeted by Hector at front desk. This man is a true gentleman. He knows how to engage, listen and solve problems all with a smile on his face. Hector you are a true professional and I have no doubt Melia sees what they have with you. While hector assured us once the room is ready he will let us know he gave us wristbands to access the buffets the resort. We went to check out the lunch buffet as it opened at 12:30 after lunch we returned and we met Lily who was the manager on duty. She was an angel. She greeted us and welcomed us on our honeymoon and advised she would get our room ready and mentioned special events planned for us during our stay. We asked her if she could get us some reservations at some of the higher end a la Cartes and she came through on day 2 seeing my wife and I in the lobby and told us she got us a table at the hill top the same night. We really appreciated this gesture and my wife and I were excited for the dinner reservations for the rest of the week. There was plenty of food at the buffet and options nobody can go hungry. We sipped on mojitos during the day and Jameson in the evenings. The Sakura hibachi restaraunt is a blast and the food was very close to home. We went to marseille and got 2 beef steaks on rice with our own spices and it tasted similar to the home grilled steak. We dined at the hilltop twice. The service at all the restaurants was top notch and the piano player at the hilltop, and the piano bar singer were so talented! We would love to come back just to listen to his voice again. The beach: stunning , beautiful walk endless miles in the sand on this dreamy beach no bugs, lots of chairs, bring your bubba and get comfortable. Bring a shawl as it does get breezy on the beach. We spent a lot of time at the lobby bar which Amaury was working hit butt off! He was making sure everyone gets their drink orders quickly and efficiently we noticed this as he moved effortlessly table to table with full drink orders on his tray. Cappachino over the coffee in the lobby bar. They will have piano player in the lobby bar also with a very talented local singer. Don’t by shy grab your partner and dance like no one’s watching. This was my 4th time in Cuba and 2nd time at this resort and I cannot wait to go back. We met a lot of very likeminded people who were also on vacation which made the trip much more enjoyable.

There Feb 22 29. Our 6th visit, first after COVID and this beautiful resort did not disappoint. Laura's help prior to and during our visit, front desk, all dining experiences (Luiba in the buffet especially) all bars and bartenders. Our room was always taken care of. Every member of the staff go above and beyond. Cannot leave out the entertainers. Different show every night. Special mention goes to Carlos who was so full of energy all day. He made the beach activities so much fun and the after party dancing. Planning next year already!!!

A very good experience overall. Our group of 11 ended up doing an upgrade to the Royal service area of the hotel and it was worth it. The beach is fantastic, the hotel grounds are beautiful, the food is as expected in Cuba, but no one goes hungry (make sure to have an open mind in this matter), the rooms were big and very pleasant, some of the a la carte restaurants were very nice, my favourites were the Japanese where AMID the chef entertained us super well and the food was great, and the second was the “Hill Top” with amazing service by YANETSY, we loved her, very elegant and professional. Because our group loves the beach, our mornings were extra special by having Yoga/Stretching classes with our beautiful MARIALYS, she is the sweetest, most genuine girl, love her dearly. After the classes she would also pamper us with her foot massages while we were resting on lounge chairs looking at that beautiful blue ocean, (please be a generous tipper, she deserves it). We were also very spoiled by BELGIS for breakfast and lunch at the “Miramar” restaurant where our table for 11 was always ready for us, followed by espressos “made with Love” by the best barista in the house, YUNIESKY VALLIN at Royal Service bar. Cuba is a beautiful country with beautiful people, be kind, thoughtful of their situation and be generous.

I liked the nature, a very cool garden inside the hotel, beautiful palm trees, a comfortable pool, a gorgeous beach. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The food is sufficient for comfort; I would like there to be a shorter line for scrambled eggs and fried meat. I liked that there was a gym - it was nice! I wish the hotel would update the rooms as much as possible. Overall, I had a very pleasant experience staying here! Very nice staff! Thank you ❤️

Orestes on Royal Side bar is the absolute best! Yessica at Mirimar for breakfast and lunch was always there with a smile and hug! We loved everything about our experience on the Royal side this time (first time was just the regular.. which was also great). Our butlers Yaz and Randy made sure our mini fridge was stocked. We will be back again soon as we can!

My family and I were there Feb. 6 - 13. Very beautiful resort. The staff are great. I had a great room in the newer #6 building which is right beside the Royal suites. We requested to be upgraded to the royal services (not the full royal just the services.) 2 of my boys and their partners had booked the suites and they had issues with their rooms. Myself and the other 3 in rooms in our group had beautiful rooms. We always had water in our room, always had hot water and clean towels. The beach all I can say is OMG I loved it. Cuban beaches are the most beautiful beaches.The food was ok. We had 4 night of the a la cartes and they weren't to bad. I rather enjoyed the buffets myself. We had the breakfast buffet on the royal side which I will say was better than the regular side. Less people to stand in line with so you got your food faster and hotter. There were a couple things that I didn't like, one they have no control over are the no-see ems sand fleas. I had a severe allergic reaction that sent me to see the doctor there, (she was absolutely wonderful.) The other was when we were on an excursion. We were heading back to the bus from snorkeling, when some locals approached me. One had a big conch that I bought, one was selling little ones which I also bought. The third was not selling anything. When I went to pull out the money to pay the others, he tried to grab my money from my fanny pack. I have been 3 times to Cuba and this is the first I experienced this. All in all I had a great trip, the resort and the staff are just awesome.
