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.†

 The eye-catching Mar del Sur is located just a short 5 minute walk from beautiful Varadero Beach, 25 minutes from the airport.

Great Stay

Great location, very near the beach and right in the town. I could enjoy the real Cuba! Not the luxury of the big hotels, but the warmth of a small and frendly home. I went out every night to near by bars, try "the beatles" ! You could book tours from local tour operator right un the lobby and enjoy your days as well. It is not expensive and rooms are good for the price. I can't complaint

This is the worse hotel i have ever stay in, Wife bed was twisted on one side, No safe box, Phone don't work, Air condition blowing warm air and very noisy, lots of insect in the room, my wife had to see a doctor when she arrive home to get antibiotic, The only good thing about it we had a good cleaner Room 263 The food was not too bad,

Still Smiling!

This was our second time staying at Mar del Sur. There were many improvements since our last visit. For starters, the food was greatly improved. We brought butter and peanut butter from home this time and loved our breakfasts (best coffee ever) the most. We were too busy swimming and sunning for lunch most days and snacked on good hot dogs at the beach bar or pool bar. Dinners were quite good! We had roast turkey one night, delicious ham cut off the bone another and were surprised with crazy good roasted pork sandwiches poolside late one afternoon so we skipped dinner that night. We absolutely love the staff and the maids are so sweet to us. Remember to reward them with gifts every day. They are so appreciative and you will feel good about it. We had a one bedroom apartment this year and I would say we preferred the two bedroom that we had the year before. The two bedroom had a more modern TV and better furniture but we really didn't care...who stays in the room anyway? The mattresses were brand new this year so that was definitely a big plus. Now that we know our way around a bit and have made so many friends, we will not hesitate to return to Mar del Sur again and again. We have had no bad experiences there and the weather in late January was perfect. Low 80s during the day and high 60s at night. Although this is not a high-end luxury resort, it is perfect for what we want to do - relax! We love it and can't wait to return. The price is right and we fit right in. They are remodeling as well so I expect to see even more improvements when we return next year.
