We were there a couple weeks ago for 7 days. The rooms are old and need updating. Not much choices for food but you can find at least one or two things to eat. Wished they served butter everyday and maybe fries or fried chicken once and awhile. There was hot water the whole week except one day. Pina Coladas were not the greatest, so just stuck with Fanta. Besides that, the resort and beach are clean and nice. Loved having the after dinner live music to dance to. The 10pm shows are good and the Cuban day mid day dancing was fun. Free wifi. Love how easy it is to catch a cab/bus to Veradero where there are shops and restaurants. I love going to Cuba and always feel safe traveling there.

Positive: hotel is just the right size, beach is close to the rooms, the pool is nice and clean. Staff is nice and professional. The location is great, walking distance to the marina and delphinarium. They have a nice mini-club and outdoor park for kids, special thanks to Maria at the mini-club, she was great with our kids! There is a coffee bar open from early morning to 10 pm, the coffee is amazing. The coffee bar has a nice outdoor terrace. The rooms are comfortable. The beach is beautiful and clean, plenty of beach chairs. There is a volleyball court. Day time animation is fun, they had magic shows, circus shows, bingo, etc. Negative: the hotel is very worn down, paint peeling everywhere, elevators don't work, broken lights, etc. We didn't have hot water for 3 days in our room. The food at the buffet is ok, but prepare to eat the same things all week long. During our stay, they had various types of bread, but nothing to eat it with (butter, jam, nothing). Only vegetables we saw were eggplant and cabbage. The 2 "à la carte" restaurants the food is very bad, the wine is bad, the portions are so small we had to go eat at the buffet afterwards. The pool snack bar, they were serving hamburger and ham sandwich, no fries, no vegetables, no condiments, just dry meat and bread... Nighttime shows start at 10PM. The quality of the shows is mainly not good, except for the magic show which was nice. There is a discoteca, always empty during our stay, don't expect to party a this hotel.

Seeing cockroaches coming out of buffet plates and the most disgusting thing I've seen in my life, hygiene problems (especially where there are pieces of focaccia). Cockroaches in the corridors, dirty rooms in really bad shape. I haven't touched much food for days, I had to be careful about everything I took, especially because the marble is black so it's difficult to look. Poor hygiene throughout the hotel, they are only kind to you if you leave a tip otherwise expect sulking, tired and pissed off faces as if the problem was you and not the structure or the government that leaves this mess open. One point at the reception who at least welcome you with a smile and are the only kind ones. Cuba is going through a really difficult time on all points, lack of food, but when it comes to hygiene it's a completely different story. I don't wish anyone to be in this place.

We have been to this resort 6 times over the years and this has to be the worst time and probably the last time . The beach and weather and staff are the best thing about this resort...but they cannot hold it together any longer. The elevators weren't working . The poor staff were left to haul everyone's luggage up 5 flights of stairs . The worst experience as far as food goes due simply to the fact there was an influx of Cuban people who obviously have money and would take all the food from the plates as they were brought out...they would but in line , and take every last piece of food on the plate .they took all the buns and sat at their tables making sandwiches of buns cold meat, and cheese and put them in plastic bags to take away. I have pictures of this however won't post. The management does nothing about it. I do not begrudge people food however I paid to eat too. I am truly sorry that I will not be returning to this resort as I have made some great friends. The MGM Muthu needs to put some real money into this place.

I have travelled extensively throughout the world and just about every country in the Caribbean I’d say 70 to 80 trips and this trip and hotel are without a doubt the worst excuse for a hotel , they would be better off closing down, the elevator doesn’t work , hopefully you don’t get a high floor room because there are a lot of stairs to climb several times a day, the restaurants are horrid , the same recycled food everyday for both lunch and dinner , nowhere to get a coffee after 10 o’clock, there are coffee maker in the rooms but the only problem is there is no coffee packets , it’s there are a decoration, shower wand broken , in behind toilet seat is dried crusted urine stains that haven’t been cleaned in ages , the room door is very hard to close when leaving the room, and the list goes on and on but I don’t have all day to list everything, but probably the worst is the hotel is over run with with locals who are very very rude , cut in line , hog almost all the food like dessert and meats if there is any , one person gets to the front of the line and then stands there passing plates of back to every member of their family, you can tell them but they just ignore you and hotel management refuses to do anything and turns a blind eye to this nonsense, I have visited Cuba many many times and I love the humble people of Cuba but I just can’t stand the Conditions that the hotels in Cuba have become, the owners of these hotels , the Cuban government and their business partners it seems are let the whole industry go down in ruins , my heart goes out to the people of Cuba that work in this industry but this frequent visitor has had enough, I will pay a little more but will enjoy my experience, again please do everyone a favour and close down this wretched hotel , I would give it 0 stars but 1 star is the lowest you can go

Our room was clean. Staff were absolutely amazing. Lots of things for kids to do and the entertainment at night was great! Beach is gorgeous! Walking distance to dolphinarium. The coffee bar was an added bonus. Great family vacation! Would definitely go back. Elevator does not work but never bothered us

We had a wonderful experience on the bike tour with Yohan. The ride was at a leisurely pace, so we were able to keep up with the group. We passed the marina, cafe bar, and Dofinario where Yohan was able to call the dolphin over to the bridge so we had a real closeup view. We rode to the cave and had an informative tour and then went onto the natural forest where we did a self guided hike in the woods. It was well worth the minimal cost to enter the attractions. Thank you for the adventure.

Love this place. Rooms are average, but staff and entertainment are incredible. The lobby is beautiful and inviting to all. Miguel will greet you with a smile, and the vibe is fantastic. The beaches is among the nicest in Varadero, and the pool is beautiful. Not too big, but not too small. We will be back.

My friend and me went to the Hotel only for 3 nights for short trip from Toronto. Even though the hotel facilities and equipment are not as perfect as you expected, but all the peoples and servicers at the resort are very friendly and nice. They are pleased to help the customers to give more useful information to everyone, The last day of our stay is a beautiful day then we decided to ride the bike to enjoy the sunshine. Yojan who is in responsibly to gym and bike management at resort help us a lot and take care of me when I fell down from the bike. He is so kind and sincere that protect and ride with each customer carefully. I can not recommend more of finding Yojan for the enjoy of bicycle if you decided to go to stay at Muthu!
