I took my daughter and her youngest sister here for her 30th birthday dinner while we were staying at the Melia Las Americas next door. We walked over during the day and had cocktails on the roof overlooking the golf course. You can climb up three floors the last set of stairs being quite narrow and scary or take an... More

We had a lovely meal here for our anniversary. We had salmon and prawns to start, soup and then chateau briand and lobster for mains. We were so full we could not fit in puddings. Only one niggle is They presented us with bread and butter, which we happily ate but they charged us for after- sneaky! Other than that...... More

We stayed here for a night because we wanted to play golf and it included the green fee, best decision ever. The mansion is really charming, staff is very polite and made us feel like home. We had the best dinner of our trip in cuba in the mansion (lobster and steak). We liked it so much we decided to... More

I had a divine lobster lunch. Excellent service. The most beautiful sand bar and very beautiful clear blue waters. My favorite swim lunch spot! Drove from from Havana in a 1950s car for 150cuc, well worth it, stopped for a pineapple colda with a breathtaking view, only 2hrs from'Havana. The house has a beautiful roof top bar with free wifi!

This place is a little gem of history in a prime location along the beach front in Varadero.i absolutely loved the terrace overlooking the beautiful ocean. Apparently the DuPont family paid 1million dollars in the 1920's to have this place built to there specifications. I can only assume they we gutted when they had to leave the property when the...

Expect a great service, really old rooms, not so comfortable beds but an incredible venue. The beach is awesome, Ask the service Peolpe to install you a beach set in a tiny private area far away from the families in the closest hotel. Great for couples. AMAZING FOOD. No between meals service, by the way. So prepare your self if... More

This mansion was built by the DuPont heiress, and it shows. The house and grounds are stunning; when we visited, all was deserted, allowing us the fantasy of owning this wonderful property in a bygone age. The bar on the top floor is accessed via the servants' staircase (mind your head!) but is worth the climb. Staff and musicians outnumber... More

We came here one afternoon to visit the mansion and spent the afternoon walking around the grounds (even though we were not guests staying at the hotel, they allowed us to walk around and explore the place). The views from the top floor bar are amazing! Apart from the great views and very friendly staff, the daiquiri's served there are... More

We opted to skip the very expensive dinner and just enjoyed touring the property and went for a drink at the bar. Guzman served us BY FAR the BEST Daiquiri we had for our whole 15 days in Cuba! He was so lovely he really made our visit memorable.

The group of forty had prearranged a dinner over looking the ocean. The setting was wonderful. The building is a true beauty. The appetizer plate was artistic with 6 items carefully arranged. There was only one entree offered. The fish was a large serving but dry and tasteless. Dessert was ice cream cake which was again forgettable. The best part... More
