“Great value for your money.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

Went to this resort the last week of April 2012 for a girl's trip with a good friend. I was a bit apprehensive about this resort after reading some of the online reviews and after being at the 5 star Melia Las Dunas resort for a wedding in November/December - I was pleasantly surprised upon arrival and had a great stay.

If you are expecting beautifully manicured rooms/decor, spend more $ and go somewhere with a higher rating, the rooms at this resort are very basic but comfortable and clean.

The food at the buffet was better than at the 5 star I was at in the fall, the a la carte restaurants were also quite good.

The size of this place is perfect, everything is close and the staff is very friendly.

If you are the kind of person who is bothered by groups of intoxicated young people with little respect for everyone else around them, this might not be the best place for you. It's low price seems to attract university students with little respect for themselves, the staff, and other guests. You simply cannot fault the resort for the people who frequent it, I'm sure they'd love a little more respect too.

All in all, we had a great week. The beaches in Varadero are simply exquisite.

Stayed here for a week, was perfect, food was great! drinks were great! staff friendly!
Rooms perfect!

Would love to go back. Although its a very hotel orientated holiday, not much to do in the surroundings!
We went to Havana for the day and this was defiantly the highlight of the trip!

Would go back!!!!

Alright, backpacked the world, 2nd time back to the Caribbean, won't be going to Cuba again...needless to say, you take 100 local cubans, give them a day-pass, let them drink, lose their mindset, do you think they will be enticed to steal from the tourists? yes they will..

not that it happened to me but when you see them eyeing your stuff, it makes you sceptical and it doesn't really help your LEVEL OF FUN!

but seriously, the pool bar closes at 5pm, its beaming hot, that's insane.

24/7 bar is not nice, they are mongrel maggots actually..soon as you walk in past midnight they glare at you, make you wait for service while they converse with their cuban counterparts, they sometimes even refuse service even though we're entitled to it.

I have had some instances (4-5 in particular) where they refuse us service, then give the EXACT same service to the cubans, right in front of us.

DAY time staff is awesome, not a thing to say about them, maybe the cleaners, they will steal your bills / items you bring for children, lock that stuff up, untrustworthy maids. The maid never cleaned our sheets once in 10 days..

FOOD / BUFFET -- everyone hates on it, can't knock it, it's decent food, stay on the pasta bar and youll be fine.

Im never going to Cuba again after this trip..
and I am used to sleeping in 1 bedroom closets with NO tv, NO fan and bugs crawling all over me. I would take that again over the miserable service they will try to procure to the customers..

Room Tip: suite overlooking the pool

Beside jamming balkony doors,we had no issues, but the food pallette took a while to get used to. Excellent entertainment especially the Aqua show. Very reasonable price, clean, very nice and friendly staff we felt sorry for. They did not accept any cedit cards, cash only we had to get from our credit cards. Ask for a room in the North, away from the highway.

My wife and I were at Brisas del Caribe March 30 to April 13, 2012. We went with another couple which was a first for us and it was fun to have someone else to hang around with.
We went with Air Canada Vacations and to this resort because of the price. The plane was extremely cramped and Air Canada serves no food on their flights south, not even a bag of peanuts. We were very disappointed with their rep at the resort. He was only there one hour per day the first week and not there at all the second week. So much for service.
My wife and I had been to this resort before in 2005 and it hasn't changed very much. We stayed on the South side this time, where the rooms are larger but further away from everything. The rooms are spacious and clean. We had no problems in our room but our friend's air conditioning quit one day. After 4 phones calls to the front desk, nothing was done. The next morning when the maid came, she made one phone call and 10 minutes later someone was there and fixed the air. Tips Work. There are 2 pools and no problem getting seats in the shade. The beach is very nice but we are really not beach people.
Service overall was very good except if you went to the 24 hr. bar. If you could get waited on everyone behind the bar couldn't figure out what you wanted.
My main complaint with this resort and Cuba in general is that the food sucks. The very same thing over and over. The food here was poor quality but not as bad as last year when we went to TRYP Varadero which had the worst food I have ever eaten.
We went off site twice to eat out. Once to Al Capone's and once to DuPont Mansion. The food was better than the resort but still not great for the price.
We did a guided tour of Havana and also of Varadero which were both very good. We also went one evening to a concert of retired musicians which was also very good.
Over all, we had a great two weeks in the sun with good friends but because of the poor food I feel that Cuba is a one week only destination.
This resort is a solid 3.5* just as advertised.

Okay for anyone who wants to go here .. DONT READ THE BAD REVIEWS.. i came here april 24-may 1 and i was so scared going here knowing what everyone wrote about this resort so I went there with bad thoughts.. but when i got there it was great..

1: there is cosmetic things that could be fixed but is your house perfect? because im pretty sure a resort by the beach is going to beat your house anyday ..
2:The rooms are so spacious and clean .. our maid was awesome .. also ask for Doug to help you with your bags he was AWESOME!.
3:The beach i actually dont have words for .. it was the most beautiful beach i have ever seen.. the water was so blue and warm i spent a good 3 hours in there our last day there.. people are complaining about garbage and stuff like people come on.. the poeple who work there work so hard and they are not going to sit and wait for someone to drop something and then run and pick it up ... like honestly get a grip. The pools were always clean and they were great as well.
4:the food i wasnt a big fan of but i wish i knew this because there is a microwave in the buffet so i woulda brought some soup and stuff .. good idea !! its not the resorts fault its just all cuba i went to numerous places and wasnt impressed with the food but i always found something that i liked.

anyways people i could go on and on about this resort but the bottom line is .. save your selfs and do not read negative reviews people are just picky and ridiculas i found nothing wrong with this resort at all.. It was beautiful .. I hope you guys have a wonderful trip..

Room Tip: south section was farther away but very quiet and i enjoyed it because it was by the 24 hour snack b...
