Our Opinion
Please note that hotel standards in Cuba tend to be lower than in other Sun Destinations. Unless travelers are familiar with the resort or Cuban hotels, we typically recommend that travelers book a minimum 4 star resort when traveling to Cuba.

Overview
Set 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.

Million dollar view

Cabana Airlines 12 hours late for flight from Toronto. Received a $20 voucher and no explanation. So unfortunate we arrived at the hotel at 5 in the morning instead of 5 in the evening the night before. This was not the hotel's fault however our rooms were not adjoining and we had two young children. There was still more problems rectifying this the following day but the manager took up the issue himself accordingly and there were no more problems for the rest of the week. Thank you!!! The food for Cuban standards was acceptable. Breakfast is great with fresh juice at the juice bar. Orange juice bananas mangoes grapefruit. The staff at the hotel continues to improve and make your stay as comfortable as possible. The buffet is now air-conditioned all the time. Which is great in the afternoon during lunch. We had beef turkey pork fish variety of foods that changed daily. Most rooms are ocean view however the lower section is the best and the fourth floor is the renovated floor so request this when booking. All the bartenders are great and speak English for the most part. Reibel was great!!!There were a lot of tourists from Haiti and Cuba which could make things frustrating at times because they demand a lot of service from the workers and with their culture they don't tip. Moderate tips at this Resort goes a really long way. Only if it's a couple bucks here and there you will never wait for anything ever. You will enjoy your stay here it's extremely peaceful and nature at its best where the mountains reach the ocean and the staff is great the beds are okay the Landscaping is incredible as the gardeners are continually working all day. If you have any questions at check-in the bell boys are great so ask them for anything you might need or questions you might have. Danielle was great thanks and see you again next year

Enjoyed 3 days nice resort amoung Sierra Maestra mountains

Good room with plenty of towels, strong shower and cable stations. Friendly / helpful staff around the resort. It was low season, so an interesting mix of tourist and Cubans - a fun time to be there. Highly recommend to bring beach shoes for swimming in the sea as there is some grass / corral in shallows.

Fun under the Sun by the Sea.

We had a great time once again at Brisas Sierra Mar. travelling there for a week, were my husband 2 teenage daughters and I. we had a very easy check in, they actually greet you at the airport and while boarding the bus you get possession of your room key and your bracelet gets put on. we flown down with Cubana, late arrival at the hotel, but they had hold the Buffet open for us to eat then Bell boys help us to our room" quick side note if you only need 1 to help you say so, they seem too eager and were each carrying a suitcase and kind of pushy for tips" we give them 6 bucks 3 dollars per room and they seem to think that was not enough, however that's all we had as we had just arrive and it would have to do. we stay there from June 29- July 6, Canada Day celebration was good. This is the slow season for the hotel and locals are welcome to fill the space we leave; so there was a very wide variety of people from all walks of life, the hotel was great at keeping all entertained and well fed.we had 2 room on the 300 block. air-conditions worked great on both room. the toilets flush, water was Hot and very high pressure on the showers. rooms clean dailyelevator to get you from the level 1 beach front to level 5 lobby, restaurant, pools worked the whole time no issues.it rain every night usually after the show for about an hour, sunshine everyday( not something you can control though) it was hot 35C- 40C but with a cool dip in the pool or the beach that was not an issue. The Pools are Clean, the Beach is a lot better that it was many years back a lot more sandy, bar services were good all around, same goes for all the restaurant and cafeterias, most overlapping services with different offers never went hungry. Make sure you make the A La Carte reservation as soon as you get there, only the wine on la Bodeguita Restaurant is not included you will need to buy the bottle, or drink something else, then go to the lobby and have some wine:-)they didn't ran out of anything that I know off, friendly kind service from all staff, over all a great vacation, I totally not only recommend this place I keep coming back with my family.

Always a treat to return to Sierra Mar

I've been coming here several times a year since 1998. It's true the resort is not what it used to be but what hasn't changed is the 6 star view, which one can never tire of as well as the incredible staff, from the front desk, to the bar, to the restaurants, to the cleaners of the rooms or main areas, to the dive shop, to the gardeners...everyone works hard to do a great job and ensure your stay is the best it can be.We have been here 3 times this season, once during Hurricane Matthew and had to be evacuated. I appreciated the effectiveness of the staff to ensure everything runs smoothly. However, we were evacuated into the city to stay at the Melia, while all guests at that hotel were evacuated out of the city to other provinces. I'm not confident that Holasun were looking out for the best interest of their customers.Always, one of the best parts of our stay is the scuba diving. We were able to dive in October, even the day we were evacuated because of the impending hurricane. It's true the boat was broken recently but the amount of time out of the water was minimal, all considered. The diveshop worked diligently to get it repaired and back in the water. The second engine, that was not working anyway has been left off and the boat seems to run faster and more efficiently since the repairs. For the distance the boat goes to the dive sites, one engine is more than adequate. For some reason, the food is very unpredictable. We have been there twice in the last 6 weeks and for a week the food is really great and then suddenly severely lacking. I'm not sure what causes that shift but I suspect it has to do with whether there are more Cubans or tourists in the resort at the time. In all the times I've been there, I have never experienced an ongoing issue with the air conditioning in the rooms but this last 11 days, it was down for 4 days and then back working again for the next week. It's also wonderful to have air in the buffet restaurant and I've heard that a few more units will be installed as well.

We enjoyed our 2 days

We came from Santiago de Cuba for 2 nights, it was good value if you book through the agent at the hotel Santiago, 185cuc a night for 5 adults and a 2 year old staying in 3 rooms all inclusive. We wanted a couple of days chilling by the pool and on the beach and we had a great time.The hotel is in lovely location by the sea, surrounded by mountains, the beach is quite small but ok, the Hotel is a little bit run down, I would say it's a 2 star hotel, I wouldn't really want to stay for more than a few days. The food in the buffet restaurant was average at best, the entertainment was fun and the staff were helpful and friendly.It was low season when we stayed and the hotel was no where near full, if it had been full I think the pool area and the beach may have been a bit crowded.But all in all we had a great time.
