Before i left for vacation, i read a lot of reviews here. One thing which i learned the most from them is to lower your expectations, don't use western standard to measure cuba, which is a different society and system, then you will feel much better and appreciate what you receive. Overall, very nice and friendly people and staff in... More

I've been to this hotel many times, mostly for business since my former employer used to pay me stays in that hotel due to the low price. It's a 2 stars hotel and the service and food are pretty good for the price and category is the hotel. The only thing I really don't like are the rooms since they... More

The hotel consists of several buildings. Some are newer and/or better maintained than others. I stayed here three years ago so I knew that it was not a good hotel when I booked again in 2015. It has gone downhill since my last visit and I was once again put in building 17, which is one of the oldest and... More

..firstly it was a "last minute" deal with Sunwing"...save %53 .paid $570..that implies it was a $1200 vacation..not a chance..

Well, this hotel is pretty much as advertised. It is a two star with an in town location. I thought I'd try a very inexpensive option as I was travelling with a buddy and not my wife. It is within walking distance of most of the town of Varadero. The beach is two blocks away, and the hotel has a... More

My family and I spent 1 week at Mar del Sur in March and we had a great time! Senora Yonaiky Medinas at the front desk checked us in and did a wonderful job getting our group of 7 settled. There is no extravagant lobby at this resort and the lobby bar is small but sufficient. There are a few... More

Just back from a great vacation at the Islazul Mar Del Sur. We grabbed a nice cheap deal for a week to escape the copious amounts of snow we've seen this year. We are both well seasoned travellers. We knew going into this trip our hotel was not a four or five star and yet was pleasantly surprised to find... More

I have visited this great hotel for three times. I think it's the best combination of price and quality. Very good location, typical cuban food, nice rooms and great stuff. Five minutes walk to the beach doesn't disturb at all.

My boyfriend and I stayed here from March 11-18. We chose this spot because it was cheap and the location is great. This was our first time here. ROOM: we got a 1 bedroom apartment block 12, room 108 right in the lobby up one set of stairs. It was good enough for us but by no means like a... More
