“Good choice for a beach hotel near Trinidad”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

We enjoyed our two-week stay here on the beach. Although there was a lot of coming and going at the hotel, the beach is very nice and quiet, as well as being public, which is nice. We had a nice room in block 8 on the third floor overlooking the lagoon and Trinidad in the distance. The real problem here are the biting insects, much worse than other destinations in Cuba that I have visited. The food is so-so at best, but much like other similar hotels in Cuba. The staff was mostly friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Naiza who looked after our room. The evening shows and the entertainment in general were much too loud. The shuttle bus into Trinidad is great, return trip for 2 CUC, takes 30 minutes. It would be helpful if the rooms had screens to keep out the bugs.

Room Tip: Block 8 or 9, second or third floor

If you want to spend most of your time in Trinidad, this hotel is not the best option - too far away. If you want to be close to a beach, this hotel is a good option. The beach is OK, the rooms are acceptable, and the service is fine. The entertainment at the pool area at night could have been better, but the Mojitos were excellent!

Brisas Trinidad del Mar is located 15 kilometers from the town of Trinidad on a Caribbean sea peninsula. This is clearly a beach holiday hotel with all inclusive service. Room is a standard and clean, as well as bathroom. We had a problem with water pressure in shower but they managed to fix it - at least partially. Food was average on Cuban hotel standards. Service was not too fast at buffet restaurant but adequate still. Beach was very nice and there is plenty of room. Pool seemed to be OK too but we didn't really spend much time there. There is a watch tower next to restaurant and there is a pretty nice view from the top, recommend to check it. At bars they seemed to have lack of yerba buena (mint variety used for mojitos), spirits and even classes (they used plastic cups instead), but all this seems to be typical in Cuba. There is also a open air show each night with some music and dancing. In overall this is a OK hotel if you are going to stay next to Trinidad.

Room was fine but on ground floor. We didn't suffer theft but two of our party had stuff stolen so don't leave anything you value unattended for a moment. Usual bland boring food you get everywhere in Cuba and predictable selection of garish coloured cakes tasting of absolutely nothing.

Room Tip: If you want peace try 8015

We spent 2 great weeks at this hotel,from Jan.5th.Weather was great except for the last 3 or 4 days of clouds,and a total of 1 day of rain,so not so bad.This is our 10th time in Cuba,we've been to 3*up to 4.5*,I would have to say this is a good 3.5*.The rooms we're dated but very clean,we don't spend so much time in our rooms anyways.We had paid for a seaview?We could only see aprox. 10% or so of the sea,but could here it in the evening which was fine.Very quiet.Food wise,well I would unfortunately have to say this was not the best!Breakfast is breakfast pritty much anywhere,but lunch & supper AYE!!We did have good fish at the Marinera rest. a la carte.So we ended up going quite a few times into Trinidad for some really good,huge lobster ,& even a few pizza lunches.We had a great time in Trinidad!Ther are 2 bars at the hotel,one of them,great drinks,great service,& real glasses,as compared to the other one where they serve in plastic glasses and are not in a rush to serve you.You can take a bicycle ride into La Boca which is aprox. 8 klms.a nice ride along the ocean,great stops for snorkeling along the way. Nice beach,nice people,beautiful surroundins,food....,well we always found something.

Room Tip: Lagoone view is probaly as nice if not better.

From the minute we arrived it had an open airy tropical resort feel. The resort was reasonably well laid out. Our rooms were fairly near the dining area and snack bar and just steps from the boardwalk to the beach. The rooms were above average for a Cuban hotel. Unlike other reviewers I had no problem with the service. The beach area was large enough that it didn't feel crowded and one could go for a long walk along the shore, swim, etc. The resort was a long way from the town, which was probably a good thing since I found "charming Trinidad" overrun with tourists, vendors and beggars. Brisas had a much more laid back vibe. Personally I don't eat or drink enough to get my money's worth at an all inclusive, but others in my group enjoyed adult beverages at all times.

Room Tip: The buildings are 3 stories and there is no elevator and the rooms in the 2000 series are on the 3r...

Three generation family, ten persons, four kids, stayed for 6 days. Shortchanged on two "sea view rooms" bought on a 40% higher rate. The rooms faced music scene. To survive the noice we changed to regular "palm view" rooms (belive nobody had sea view). The other "extras" were free minibar and choice of restaurants. The bar was not refilled and the food was identical on all locations, the "cheap" buffet had the best staff.-"Tropical standard" was money wasted. Main other complaint was losing items for plus 300$. Things left unattended "vaporised". On one occation we left some exspensive snorkeling gear for ten minutes on beach by hotel, empty of guests. We confronted the staff conserned, even offered money, but to no avail. The "seguridad" lady present seemed focused on the security of her fellow employees. In three diifferent such instances we sought help in the reseption. They seem used to this problem, but did nothing to help.- This seemed not their responibility. We belive this resort has a leadership problem.
