Just spent 4 nights at the Marina Hemingway in Havana. This should be considered least 4 stars. The first day there was no air conditioning in the rooms, The buffet is the dirtiest, most low quality Hotel I known, At the buffet the food is cold. Badly cooked, poor service, no napkins, discourteous staff, you have to stop and look... More

Having read previous reviews of the Marina Hemingway, I thought we were in for a mozzy-infested 1960s throwback, but this was far from the case. There were a few mozzies about in mid-May (so perhaps more in June/July?), but all you need is your anti-bug spray, so what's the problem? Girls - there are hair dryers in the rooms... The... More

After reading the reviews, I expected the worse! We arrived approx. 1am from London, (as you can imagine very tired after a 12 hour flight) , the staff were amiable, a porter (for 3 pesos) showed us to our room which was clean and larger than I expected, with 2 double beds and a balcony with a view over looking...

This is a straightforward tourist hotel a little out of Havana but with a reliable free shuttle bus. The problem is that all afternoon it operates as a kind of public swimming pool with an unreasonably noisy public address blaring out disco and local music for the sole benefit of the many local people who flood in and certainly not...

The hotel comprises a number of buildings alongside a private road within a gated marina. We arrived late in the evening and there was no one to show us where our room was or to help with luggage. Refurbishment is taking place but it caused us no problems. Rooms are quiet and spacious with two double beds and they have... More

We stayed there for 4 nights June04 and the first day we killed over 80 mosquito,s in our room. There was hundreds of splat marks on the wall before we arrived. Its an old hotel which is in need of remoderation. The locals can also use the pool area. We left a beach towel and a t-shirt by accident at... More

Myself and my boyfriend have just returned from Cuba. We stay at the Marina Hemingway for 4 nights. I definitely would not rate this hotel as a 4*... 2* max!! Overall, its very rundown and in bad need of a revamp. Its a real pity because the Marina is a nice place. The rooms, whilst they looked okay, the smell... More

Excellent value for money when you book direct with the hotel - the rooms, restaurants and general area were very clean. The restaurant prices were very good and quiet day and night. This is not party central - I was there to rest and enjoy a few cigars, walks and watching the sunset from my balcony. Note this is not... More

Marina Hemingway, is a nice and historic place. The hotel offers a lobby that is straight out of a 60's James Bond Movie. The staff are helpful but slow, there is a great pool and the surf pounding against the break wall at night can be both soothful and annoying. When our flight was delaid out of Havana City Airport,... More
