..firstly it was a "last minute" deal with Sunwing"...save %53 .paid $570..that implies it was a $1200 vacation..not a chance.. I would doubt anyone actually paid that to stay at this dump!..people say "you get what you pay for"..NO!..I paid $ 570 for a $1200 vacation (according to Sunwing)..I did not expect filthy rooms,dirty balcony, totally indifferent staff, deplorable food,no...

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

Spent two weeks at the resort hotel. Food was typical Cuba and OK. Room was in need of repair. AC was loud and in need of repair. Bar staff was not always friendly and was ignored at times. Sometimes out of inventory or would not get more. Room was clean and cleaning staff where friendly. Hardly a two star.

Used this place as home base for exploring the area, knew it was gonna be nasty, a Cuban 2 star could not hold much promise. $560/person including airfare leaves not much money left to run a hotel, and it shows. Place is an absolute dump. Old, never been updated, everything is broken, staff is indifferent, food is a disgrace, cocktail... More
