This marina also symbolises the decline of this island's treasures. Not only Habana Vieja portrays the city's sustained dereliction, as this place used to be a rather posh convergence point where yacht owners used to dock their vessels in pre-Revolution Cuba. The place nowadays consists of just a few shops where to buy grocery, alcohol and souvenirs. Nice sunset views... More

The marina and hotel are quaint and have all of the basic features one would require for a stay. The hotel pool was beautiful and had a range of night time entertainment. The marina docks were in need of updating, as were the rooms, but both were adequate.

We thought the Ernest Hemmingway Marina would be a place to stroll around some time. But we found the area boring and the restaurants within the Marina quite unfriendly.

Came by boat to Marina Hemingway from Key West. Entering the Marina may be tricky for Big Yachts but we had no problem on our 39' Charter Fishing Boat, Double Down. We stopped to clear customs and this process took awhile as three vessels including us arrived simultaneously. Customs sent a doctor on board first to check our temperature and... More

Was looking around the marina for a future visit by boat, very nice operation, friendly staff and good location. Seems very reasonably priced.

I was with a group of people who sailed from key west. We had 3 boats in our party. Customs check in was courteous and efficient. It took less than an hour for us to check in. Marina is run down but what do you expect? This is Cuba. That being said, they have convenience stores where you can buy... More

We brought 17 boats from Key West to Havana. The commodore took very good care of us, he was kind and accommodating to our group. The people walking around (not sure if they worked there) helped with cleaning our boats and helping with repairs, for a fair enough fee. The marina is very safe and secure. We will be back... More
