Arrived in early January for an 11 night stay. We had requested the Luna side as it was said to be quieter and a king size bed. We received both, however we were on the far end 800 block which meant a lot of walking to the Mares side buffet, etc. We decided to stay and did not bother to... More

We stayed in Mares section for 3 days in February 2015. This place is great if you over 50. Lots of couples from Quebec and Europe in this age range. Rooms are outdated and need some painting and repairs. Our phone didn't work and I had to request front desk staff twice to check it. We loved the buffet, great... More

My husband and I have recently returned from a three week stay. This was our second visit to Cuba, having done a tour of the island first time around. Luna y Mares was everything we thought it would be. Having read some of the previous reports we decided to draw our own conclusions once we arrived. The food was very... More

We booked into this hotel to spend a couple of days of rest. In a nutshell: we were never so disappointed with any hotel we ever booked. The food in the buffet restaurants was the worst I have ever seen. The cheese for breakfast was from the previous days, soaked in condensation water. Asking for a glass of water in... More

It's my first time in Cuba so I didn't know what to expect. The only other comparison was a resort in the Dominican Republic by the Sol Melia hotel chain. Pros: - hotel was very clean - staff was very friendly - great personal touches to celebrations (we had 2 birthday celebrations) Opportunities: - needs renovation, especially new beds -... More

I went with my Mother on a vacation here for a week and we loved it. The resort itself was lovely and the grounds were very well kept. The beach was amazing, far superior to the beach at the Five Star hotel next door. Most of their guests were walking over to our side. Lot's of shade from the palm... More

What a wonderful vacation! We spent a week here from February 8 to 15, and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The beach is spectacular. Powder white sand, kept immaculately clean each day by hard-working staff. The water displays dozens of shades of blue ranging from light aqua at the shore to deep navy on the horizon -- but mostly a visually stunning... More

My first trip to Cuba was Club Kawama so the bar was set very low in terms of improvement... This resort was exactly what I expected Cuba to be, friendly staff, decent food, nice pools and facilities. We would go back and recommend this place.
