Our Opinion
An OK resort situated within the Varadero strip. The rooms need a bit of maintenance and upgrading. However, they are cleaned and stocked daily. The food is nothing to rave about, but the resort offers plenty of choices. The resort is notable for having incredibly exceptional staff. If you have any concerns or needs, a resort team member will always be nearby to help accommodate your requests. Really great beach location. Be advised however, that bad weather conditions often lead to beach closures. Plenty of amenities available, such as a gym facility. This is an OK resort in Varadero. However, for the price you pay, it's best to go elsewhere.
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
A long time favorite of Canadians, Brisas del Caribe is set along a stunning stretch of white sand beach in fabulous Varadero. Included are a great kids' program, 24-hour lobby bar and 24-hour snack bar. The rooms in the south section of the hotel are great for families, with room for two adults and two kids. Brisas del Caribe is an excellent value beach-front hotel.

Location: Beachfront, 30 minutes from Juan Gualberto Gomez International Airport, 10 minutes to downtown Varadero.

Worst stay in Cuba

Have been to Cuba 5 times. Love Cuba but this hotel had to have been the most outdated run down place we have stayed in all of Cuba. We arrived at night and we're given room 113 in the oldest least well kept part of the hotel. The room smelled, there was no cover on the electrical panel, toilet and tub drains were plugged and the AC rattled loudly. It was sadly in need of a paint job. Staff was excellent. We moved to room 259 on main floor where it was far better and overlooked the pool. The worst about our stay was the food. Very very plain repetitious and mostly needed to be restocked all the time. The buffet was not big enough to handle the number of people therefore there were lineups at the doors and people madly rushing for food which was always depleated. It was very difficult to find an empty clean plate. Breakfast was the same resulting in most of the food being cold. After being to Cayo Santa Maria the beach was fair. About a 5 ft wall of sand to hop over and the water got deep immediately with a sandbar about 15 ft out. Pool was well kept and liquor was free flowing but forget coffee. The one cappuccino maker on the main side was broken for most of our stay. WiFi in the lobby for 2 pesos per hour was sketchy reception and non existent the last two days. Only saving grace for us was the fun coloured 1950's cabs that ran you into town. Restaurants in town were very good. Forget the Plaza America. Not much there. Would not go back and not likely to Varadero. Much prefer the CayosHolguin and Camaguey. Unbelievably we paid higher for this trip at less quality than on any other trip to Cuba we have ever taken.

Family March Break

My wife and I have been to Cuba 7 times, twice to Varadero. We traveled here with our 5 children, ages 10 to 17. To begin, I love Cuba, the weather, people, beaches, all of it. This is our second time to Varadero with the kids. So the good: Varadero beach is fantastic, clear water, no rocks, shallow enough for the kids, great. Varadero, as with anywhere in Cuba, is extremely safe. We had no problem letting the kids roam around knowing that they were not going to get any trouble. This Resort probably had some of the most helpful and friendly staff of anywhere we have stayed in the Caribbean. Really the highlight of this Resort is the staff they have working there because they are fantastic especially considering some of the clientele they had to deal with there. The ala carte restaurants were fine, and I found the service in all the restaurants to be satisfactory. On the negative side as with some previous reviews it seems to be a common occurrence to have to change rooms to find something that is suitable as was our experience which we have never had to do before another Cuban Resort. I think this is mostly due to the age of the resort and probably lack of Renovations and money put back into it as I was told by several repeat guest that this was a five-star Resort 15 years ago. Definitely one of the major complaints I heard from most guests was due to the condition of the rooms and mattresses. The food was fine and average however there was large lineups in the buffet all the time for the grills. The pool was okay but as with the rest of the resort was showing its age and overall cleanliness was not spectacular. The one thing that really irritated me was the fact that you had to pay a $15 deposit in cash for each Beach towel you wanted to use during your stay. Most other places would only make you pay this if you didn't return it at the end of the trip so for our family of seven it was 105 Cuban dollars just to get beach towels. I found that's a little much. Overall I think this hotel had an excellent location an excellent Beach and the staff were phenomenal but due to the rundown facilities I would probably look to go somewhere else next time.
