We booked a casa particular for four nights which ended up being a nightmare so after the first night we ended up in this hotel for three remaining nights. I'd call it OK for sleep-over. Don't expect too much but it was sufficient for us. The rooms were spacious, everything was clean and that was all we wanted. Sure you'll...

Varadero can be a souless place along the 15 kms hotel strip outside of the town. Oh the beach is beautiful and people can be happy with a respite from winter but this is tourist Cuba. Hotel Dos Mares in in the town itself and there is lots of shopping and restaurants just a stroll away. It is frequented by...

A basic hotel, that could need some TLC, but only 1 min. to the nice beach and close to everything. Liked the fact that it was away from all the big hotels and more quiet on the beach. Breakfast was average.

Stayed here for two nights in mid jan (am on gardening leave at the moment....). This is not a nice hotel. The rooms are tiny, not cleaned properly and rarely swept. I walked in the room in my bare feet and they were filthy after a few minutes. The hotel was built in the 1930s apparently and it looks like...

We booked the hotel via a travel agency. But it was a mistake. The room was very poor, the toilet did not even have a seat. The corridor and the room were mucky. So far every private room was better and much cheaper than this substandard hotel. The reception staff was unfriendly and the checkin-experience was like "don't bother us...

This wasn't a bad room at all. Decent amount of space. The bathroom was bigger than normal & I had hot water all the time. AC was the usual old & noisy box but to my surprise I had a new flat screen tv in my room. The staff is great. All the bar staff are great & the little...

Actually this is not a bad hotel at all....... Great location, nice beach, decent but spartan rooms. Great bar with very reasonable prices and a fairly good restaurant. The cost including breakfast was 40CUC per night in January 2016.

It's a old Hotel & rooms are a decent price. They have improved the breakfast. They have a small buffet now which makes it better. The staff is always friendly to me. I spent New Years in the hotel & the staff was very pleasant. I have a Cuban girlfriend who is always with me here. She is now friends...

We didn't stay at this hotel, but we ate there twice and both times, the food was good. Nothing extraordinary, but well cooked fish and, of course, rather cheap. The waitress was agreeable and could speak a bit of English. The toilets had toilet paper and were relatively clean (rare in Cuba!)
