Had a balcony & fridge like I requested. Staff is great as always. My last day my transfer to the airport wasn't until after 4pm & check out time was at noon. I was going to pay an extra day to keep my room until I left but they let me stay in it for no charge. I have been... More

Rooms are spacious, that is just about the only good thing in this hotel. I am not one to complain much but my experience of this hotel was ridiculous. The room I was staying in had a busted shower so I couldn't get a proper wash, not that it really mattered as the water coming from it stank! Don't think... More

First I must make this very clear: Cuba is not like your other Caribbean nations. If you're wanting to stay on a fancy resort with expensive food, expensive booze and fancy expensive rooms and where you can't leave the resort because it isn't safe, STAY AWAY FROM CUBA. If you wan't something completely different, to experience a communist country under... More

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.. 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
