Our Opinion

Great resort to stay in Varadero. The staff are very pleasant and friendly. However, there have been issues reported regarding the check-in process (communication problems and long wait times). However, this does not necessarily take away from the experience. Great food choices for both the buffet and the a la carte restaurants. The bars are also really great as well. They are not stingy on how they pour their alcohol! Amazing pool service as well. The dreaded 'towel game' is avoided at this hotel, as most of the staff would go out of their way to ensure that you get a lounger. Amazing beach views.

Princesa del Mar is a luxurious 5-star resort where you can relax and be pampered. This elegant adults-only resort offers two secluded beaches, first rate spa facilities with a wide selection of fine dining & bars to choose from. Combining an atmosphere of elegance and harmony with beautiful natural surroundings and the unique hospitality of Cuba.

Location: Beachfront, 40 minutes from the airport.

  • Stephie C :
highly recommend- Incredible hospitality, great entertainment,clean room, great food

Staff was incredible, all so friendly and always smiling. Barbie, Oerestes, and Diane had the pool bar flowing with joy, Entertainment staff Humberto, Osmel & Mayjuillin got people involved in dancing and were great patient and fun teachers. Activities all day long at the beach and pool. Piano Bar singer has the voice of an angel. Managers introduced themselves and ask if we need anything extra. Offered us a late check out and upgraded our friends. Room was wonderful, deep bath tubs, patio view of the pool. Food was the best I have seen in Cuba. All in all, exceptional service, wonderful resort, by the end you feel part of a family. I would highly recommend this to anyone considering Cuba. I will definitely be returning soon!

Failed my expectations

It has been my fourth time in Cuba.Second in Varadero. The last time I have stayed in Iberostar Varadero and I loved it. It seems that in Cuba, if you love a resort –stick to it ,or you will get disappointed.This is what happened this time.I would rate this resort 4 at best. I did not have complains re amenities and the resort itself. Even though the resort was a bit dated, it was nice, clean and you did not feel the devastation of a hurricane.However, much to say about the food. Going there, I did not have major expectations, however, I was very disappointed.It seems that the management is trying to cut corners in keeping the supplies of ingredients.I understand, that some fruits and vegetables are in season: there was no mangos, avocados, tomatoes, lemons and limes.They serve fish, and there was no lime or lemon in any of the restaurants. They have limited choice of ready prepared food. There was a line up for grilled fish/meats. One day we decided to go to the stand closer to the beach , where they grilled fish.I could not believe that a beautiful ocean fish could be prepared so poorly. No salt , no lemon.. They need major cooking lessons. I suppose due to the luck of internet , they can not even educate themselves. “Specialty restaurants “ were so bad, except Japanese, that the waitress apologized. I had an impression that the cook was ill and one of the waitresses was trying to salvage dinner.The entertainment acts were good. Overall, I would say , I would not get back. That experience set me back a bit..

Welcome to the Paradisus

I went to Varadero, Cuba, with my wife for a family reunion. We stayed at Paradisus Princesas del Mar. We are extremely happy that we choose the marvelous Princensas del Mar over the rest of the hotels in Varadero.Why? I'm very familiar with the hotel and the service that they provide. I was looking for a long beach area to run and walk. Service and Staff are excellent. We spend our honey moon there and is our 4 time back in the hotel.The front desk team went above and beyond and we got upgrade to the Royal Service!! They make our day even better. We stayed in one of the amazing hotel suite with a terrific ocean view, the suite are very spacious with an indoor jacuzzy. Near the suite There's the infinity pool. but also the Hill Top Restaurant, with a great friendly and professional staff. I have not complaints about the concierge, Ernesto and Pedro are exceptional. The concierge manager always making sure that every client is experiencing an amazing time. Our maid was great always keeping our room clean and organize.

We stayed at this resort from november 2-9, 2017. It was my first trip to Cuba and my wife's fifth, but her first stay at Varadero. This is an 18 yo+ hotel.Since we did not stay at high season, there were quite a few vacancy, thus the place did not feel crowded. Exterior design is superb with 6 three floors units of about 70 rooms each, disseminated on a large landscaped ground. The beach is accessible after a short 2-3 minutes walk. Well maintened exterior premises overall.The room was comfortable, spacious and well furnished. Closet door was hard to slide and the sink plug did not work. It was clean, A/C operated efficiently and silently. Good room service, except for the replacement of bottles of water which was sometimes omitted; the same for the replenishment of the minibar. Nice and inviting curvaciously designed large outside pool. Varied buffet providing a variety of simple and healthy food, some of it cooked on order in front of the guest (fish and others). Vast air conditionned dining room, with an exterior terrass.Varied daily and nightly entertainment. A few small shops for liquors, cigars and items like straw hats, and the like.Very courteous and amicable personnel.White sand beach but littered with small alguae débris, probably brought there by the recent storm and that machinery could not rake away. Lots of parasols. Ideal place for long and leisurely strolls. The weather was in the 25-27C° with an constant light breeze. A couple of showers during the week. Sunny weather most of the time.The large, open at both ends, hotel lobby with a bar at one extremity is a good place to have a drink and greet acquaintances.I recommend without reserve.
