In April 2015, I spent a week at the wonderful little resort of Villa Marinera, on the island of Cayo Largo. I chose this location because I was looking for quiet and convenient accommodation. VM is composed of 10 side-by-side cottages (or 20 rooms) - five along the shoreline with a ‘front-row’ view of the canal, and five recent additions... More

We just returned from a wonderful stay at Villa Marinera. We loved this tiny resort/hotel and everything about it. My husband and I prefer peace and quiet on our holidays and were looking for something as simple, quiet and easy as possible, and we found the perfect place. This is a tiny hotel that doesn't feel like an all inclusive... More

Villa Marinera still special on our second visit at this resort! Much preferable to the bigger resorts on Cayo Largo. Food was improved over last year which was a nice surprise. Stayed in the newer bungalow in hopes that they would be quieter than the older ones, but this is not the case. Be prepared for the town disco nights... More

If you wish to combine scuba diving with a week in the sun. Villa Marinera is an excellent choice. You are a short 5 minute walk to the dive center, the bank, the village and the boat to the beach. The resort itself is quiet, simple and is best suited for clients who want to keep it low key. The... More

We enjoyed our recent stay at Villa Marinera. We booked it because it was the smallest on the island and we wanted small hotel, more personal and cozy. This is not your usual AI with pretty much standard fare which we grew tired of after few times. This one has just 20 rooms - 40 guest when it's full and... More

Overall this was very disappointing. This was our 4th trip to Cuba and we always choose small quiet resorts. This resort is quiet during the day. We were there from Dec. 27/14 until Jan. 4/15. Of the 4 nights we were there we were blasted with booming, very heavy bass speakers until 4 am. This might have been excused on... More

here we are once more at Villa Marinera, it just gets better every year as we make new and old aquaintencs with the most caring and helpful staff. I understand the hotel is under new management and some maintenance improvements are being planned , but no change in the overall concept and most important no more cabins because it is... More

I want to preface this review by saying that we have been to Cayo Largo many times and have stayed at various resorts. If you love beautiful beaches, appreciate laid back - no pretence - live and let live attitudes more than fancy resorts, then you too will love Cayo Largo. Having said that, this was our first stay at... More

In all, I had a great time here! I made new friends during my stay. The quality of the food, the cleanliness of my room and the beauty of this place will make me want to come back. The only down fall staying here is that you need to plan ahead when going to playa Blanca. Put money aside for... More
