We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our tour with g adventures. We stayed in some bunglow style huts but we had one common wall and it was paper thin. We could hear the 2 girls next door to us as if they were inside our room. Also, there was no hot water on both nights. There was... More

I have read many negative reviews about this place obviously dating before the renovation. At present, the whole place is like new with clean rooms, a decent restaurant and a friendly bar. The beach is beautiful with plenty of rest chairs and a lot of shadow. One minor point: they should feed their cats. During our dinner at the restaurant,... More

The scuba diving is great, awesome, incredible! The location is nice as well, picture book beach with palm trees, blue sea, nice sunsets. However, the food is so poor that it destroyed the entire trip for me. I could only dive one out of three planned days, the rest of the time I was with stomach pain and its side... More

The diving is amazing...maybe the more pristine reefs of the caribbean. The hotel rooms had been renovated. Food is good,,,only good. The 2 issues are: 1- Mosquitos!! A lot!!!!! 2- If you are not a diver, you must became one...nothing else to do. (But the diving is world class !!! )

Maria La Gorda is a resort, not a village. So do not look for Casa Particular. You either pay the high price of accommodation here or you can camp with your car next to the road to Maria La Gorda which goes along the shore and is a MUST SEE. No other option to stay over night. Huts are just... More

Well, an average cuban hotel. Room and room cleaning was ok. The quality of the buffet restaurant is below average. The beach restaurant is nicer but doesn't have all the (not very much) items on the menu all the time. Who ever snorkeled in the red sea, should not expect anything comparable here. Some nice fishes but not very much... More

We didn't have hot water in our room and the staff at the hotel weren't very concerned to fix this problem after many attemps from us. This property, like most... More

Maria La Gorda is an international Diving Center located at 150km from Pinar del Rio City traveling to the west, and at about 315 km from Havana. More than 5 hours by car taking in consideration that some part of the road is narrow and is not in a good condition, but if you want to enjoy an spectacular diving... More

We enjoyed our stay at Maria La Gorda, once we got there over the road, which was in a rather pitifull state.. The final 14km along the immaculate beach of the bahia are really splendid. Martin, our dive instructor was a very nice guy. A pity we couldn't stay 2 days for diving, instead of one. The dives were more... More

It is a long drive to Maria la Gorda from Pinar del Rio at bad roads. We stayed at one of the cabins. Those cabins are really nice with air conditioning and a large bathroom. Warm water is scarce. The cabin is cleaned daily and towels are changed daily. The beach at Maria la Gorda is nice and the water... More
