Went back again (last April/May), with a friend instead of the gf. That in itself was a learning experience. My friend loved it because: a) he's frugal like myself, b) plenty of cubans around (in and out of the resort) c) CRAZY people seem to gravitate to this resort. The regular entourage consited of 3 canadians, a potential tranny and... More

Recently went to Villa La Mar for a week. This is definitely only a place to sleep while in Cuba. The food at the resort is not so good, I fed all my "meat" to the cats that hang around outside. Even tried the à la carte one night and it wasn't very good. My boyfriend and I decided to... More

So some of the other reviews are a little scary, but honestly this place isn't that bad. It's a little run-down, but it's clean and the staff are friendly and eager to please. On our arrival, the room we were given had an overwhelming smell of mildew. We simply couldn't breathe, so we asked to change rooms and they happily... More

First of all, it was my first trip to Cuba. Beach was AMAZING no doubt. I went on the third week of August and the weather was PERFECT, HOT & clear sunny sky to be precise. The hotel: Food was good, Idk why people are complaining, I'm not picky, I'm not fat either. Pool was not so crowded, played reggaetton&... More

This was our second year at Hotel Villa La Mar, and it felt like coming home when we walked back in to the place! We spent 7 weeks at Villa La Mar, and while our friendships haven't changed since last year...a few things have!! You still experience the intimate feeling and warmth of a small hotel, but you now have... More

My wife and I found ourselves looking for accomodation in Varadero at 3am so we had to settle for any hotel that had an available room. So we found ourselves staying the rest of the night at Villa La Mar. The hotel is so so. Our room was spacious with a balcony but was very dated. The mattresses were not... More

My room had mold and smelled like a humid cave. Food wasn't very good either. The pool area is ok and complimentary drinks at bars are fine too. Staff is alright as well. The atmosphere is from the late 70's and it's kind of funny and cozy. My room was awful, otherwise everything is average quality considering the cheap price.

This was exactly what the Dr ordered! An inexpensive trip to Cuba loaded up with lots of fun non-pretentious people. It gets pretty rowdy there (at least when our group was together) but the sister resort was really slow with lots of older people. Its a nice contrast for people that want to party and people that want it a... More

This place is not a resort! It's a hotel on very lush, beautiful grounds, with crappy drinks, terrible food and lousy service. There was a drunk guy in the lobby when we arrived, and no one at the desk moved to help or relocate him. Our room had wet hand towels and both bars of soap were sitting in puddles... More
