It is what you make it. We had a two-bedroom apartment way in the back. It was clean and quiet but who stays in their room on vacation? Close to the beach and the bank. Two good restaurants a few steps away. Bring peanut butter! LOL. You have to let your water run for about 15 minutes before hot water... More

I took a solo trip last April. If you are not particular about bells a whistle and are on a budget, Mar Del Sur will do you just fine. I paid $500 (taxes in) for 7 days all inclusive. Got a basic room with two single beds. Property is kept clean and room was air conditioned. Daily maid service and... More

I had 3 rooms before I checked out and moved to another resort. The bathroom had no showerhead. Food was nasty. Staff were rude. I paid an extra $400 to move from here,this resort is like a bad dream.

Stayed at this hotel from February 27th to March 5th 2016. Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment in building 20. Compete with 2 bathrooms and kitchen with a fridge. Great location on the strip. Typical Cuban food so don't expect much but passable. Pool area was clean and entertainment was great. Bars were great...beer was cold and service was good.... More

I spent a week in this hotel from April 8-15 . This hotel should only be rated maybe a 2-star. Been to cuba many times over the last 4 years , so I know what to expect especially food wise. I was actually given a 1 bedroom upgraded apt. Did not swim in pool because it looked filthy green. Was... More

I will do my best to give this resort an honest and fair review, but we rather knew what to expect before we got there - not much! For me the only consolation was the great deal we got on this vacation from Air Transat. We have stayed at several other resorts in Cuba - some in Varadero and some... More

If you're lucky, you'll get one of the new rooms with new paint, new mattresses new Windows, bathrooms etc. We got lucky! However, the first 2 rooms we were shown were to put it frankly... Shocking. Missing glass in Windows, rotting wood, missing shower heads, no fridges. I wasn't expecting much as the price I paid ($700) was a great... More
