- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
OverviewSet in the foothills of the dramatic Sierra Maestra mountains and overlooking a glorious 4 km blaze of golden brown beach, the Brisas Sierra Mar has a wide range of activities and entertainment for all ages.
Location: Hillside, overlooking Sevilla beach, approximately 60 minutes from Santiago de Cuba airport.
Went for Beaches, weather, the good people of Cuba.Unfortunately the beach is lacking due to a huge storm that they've had some time ago that caused much damages. People are great and do their best in entertaining guests.Great shows each and everyday.
This was our first time at the resort and we stayed at the resort for 11 days. The first week was okay but as our stay progressed things went down hill very quickly. Firstly, the food was the same everyday, breakfast, lunch, and dinner - they really need to add more variety. Eventually we couldn't even look at the buffet because we can only eat so much rice and beans because after a while that's all we could stomach. There is also no air conditioning tin the buffet, so it gets very hot and sticky and there are always bugs on the fruit. If you want to eat fruit go to the restaurant by the beach as the fruit there is put in a fridge and you open the door to serve yourself. As other reviews have said the beach is not nice, which we knew before going. We rented a scooter and went the red sand beach on the same road as the resort, or Playa Blanca. DO NOT rent the bikes at the hotel, they are not maintained or serviced at all. The bike literally broke when my boyfriend was riding it and he could have been seriously injured, thankfully only a couple of scrapes. The staff really seemed like they could care less which was offputting, mind you there were 2 or 3 that were really great but most quite honestly sucked - basically better off serving yourself. If you have the free snorkeling excursion with your stay use it, the reef is beautiful. The landscape is beautiful however and it is very warm there, our room was clean, beds were hard though. Also, like previous reviews there are many young Cuban girls with older men at the resort. Additionally, on weekends the resort is full of Cubans so it is advised that you do not leave anything lying around as we had our reusable cup stolen of all things - and expect to be served last as they will serve the Cubans first even if they were after you. We will not be returning to this resort, nor would we ever recommend it to anyone - we were happy that we got a cheap price as it was worth nothing more. One thing that really bothered me was that the owl they bring out for the "Birds of Prey" show was always left chained up by it's feet outside. Each time we walked by on our way to the beach it was always sitting there unable to move. One time we walked over when we saw staff spraying the bird with water, which is when we discovered the bird was shackled down. This was shocking and very upsetting, I eventually stopped going that way because it bothered me so much. I doubted anything could be done about this but maybe if someone sees this review and can think of some way to change this I'm sure the bird would be appreciative.
One time a long time ago this hotel was excellent. It went down incredibly. Management was good but head office was very poor. Now, the manager is excellent and he is bringing the hotel back to what it should be. It really is a lovely place to vacation. i
With his 200 rooms the hotel is located on the caribbean sea surrounded by mountainsGreat staff, very friendly, good service. The resort is 1,15 minutes drive from dt Santiago de cuba, the 1 st capital of the island before Havana The sea is good, 'not the best, good for snorkeling and divingThe food is not bad always 3 or 4 varieties Desert is horrible ! ( sorry) The rooms are very good, flat tv, mini bars, AC, clean ......Almost every personnel in the hotel speaks English The sand is black with lots of palm trees Excellent view for photosBicycles are free !
have been coming to Sierra Mar for over 20 years, no place for perfectionists, still the same crew, justlike family, excellent service with genuine smiles, after more than 20 years some fatigue in buildingand facility is apparent, but who cares? it is located on Cuba's Riviera and you are guaranteed 30 Cel. inJanuary !!! while visitors to Varadero and Cayo Coco will suffer frostbites should the Wind turn northerly,guess I shall be coming back for many more years
