When I booked the trip for my reading week, I was skeptic due to the fact that it is a two star hotel, however for the price we got through sell off vacations we couldnt say no, we didnt really need the hotel for much aside sleeping.

This place is just horrid. We stayed for 1 night as we needed a quick place to stay after an emergency and couldn't make it home. This was the dirtiest, run down room I have ever stayed in my entire life. The bed was dirty... I ate at the restaurant twice, once late at night, and once for breakfast. The...

If you don't mind animals on the resort and old rooms with musty smells - then go ahead and take the better deal here. I found the food fine, and I'm vegetarian. Still lots of options. The service was not good - i was always scrambling to get my fork, knife, napkin, asking for water, wine, etc. But its 2...

Here is a long review of my solo stay at Mar Del Sur from February 4-11, 2017. Check In: I arrived around 10:30 a.m. Check in was easy, and I was told that my room would be ready by 4, but maybe earlier. I used the bathroom in the lobby which was disgusting honestly but hey, welcome to Cuba! I...

My return to this hotel was mainly because I liked it well enough, for the price, when I visited, 3 years ago. Here are the PROS and CONS. Enjoy! By the way, I never ever in my life switched a room in Varadero, but this time I did. Reason being: no phone, no tv working, and the door lock wouldn't...

This is the worst hotel I have ever been to. The experience there basically ruined my vacation impression. We booked the hotel only because our agent could not find us casa particular in Varadero for the period and we were short on time and budget and the we were in a rush. And I regret this deeply. 1.

We’ve been returning to Hotel Mar Del Sur every winter for the past five years….why? Because it is probably the best value you will find on the Varadero peninsula. Because it is charming and comfortable without being pretentious. Because the staff are fantastic – they can’t do enough to try to accommodate your wishes. Looking forward to seeing our Mar...
