We decided to stay here because of the novelty of staying in a 'mansion' and the historical background of the property. Unfortunately, the mansion is under renovation which caused a bit of disruption and a huge mess. The mansion is in desperate need of a remodel, so I do not blame them for doing it, but I wish they had...

Dear Jodi: Thank you very much for your comments! We are so sorry for the inconvenience. It is truth, after 86 years, works of gradual restoration process has begun on the facade, in order to restore its original architectural values, so, without closing operations and services, we have published in our website the following: RESTORATION NOTICE: The Xanadú Mansion, a...

Seems that the management is reluctant to close the place down until they do the renovations but actually they are doing more harm than good. This place is crumbling. Everything about it is crumbling, even the bathtub. One can see the splendid that was once a part of this property. I am surprised that bats didn't house themselves in the...

When we visited it was under renovation so it wasn't worth the time to go see. Once done, the view is nice. Great way to burn some time, especially if you take the bus. Has a restaurant and a longe area. They don't let you tour the rooms for your 2 CUC.

This place is definitely showing its "Cuba" all over it... a once elegant mansion that is now crumbling. The staff was generally very nice and the sunsets are great. It is one of the only places on the strip that is not an all inclusive. Which is nice in a way... but also weird cause when you walk down the...

30's mansion turned into a boutique hotel. Real residential ambience. Patio overlooks the crashing waves of the Atlantic. Wonderful lunch of lobster and Chateaubriand. Not cheap but worth it. Arrived by classic car from Varadero to complete the experience.

The hotel is sumptuous, of course, but it's the staff that make it truly a special experience. We enjoyed sunset cocktails on the 2nd floor terrace, and sat with fellow travelers from several other countries. The mojito might be one of the best I've ever had.

Bartender at roof top was very pleasant . Nice place to reward the resort staff for a night out and or invite good Cuban friends. It was my fifth return visit to this Mansion. Nice place to visit but there are better restaurants in Varadero. Bring plenty of CUC's!!!

We visited Mansion Xanadu with our daughter occupying two rooms. The rooms were very grand and spacious - they must have looked absolutely fantastic when in their pomp. However its like they switched the lights out back in the 50's and switched them back on for us to visit. Our room had a magnificent view over the beach because the...

Loved the old Dupont family residence. Walked over here, right next to the Melia Las Americas hotel . It is located on the only 18 hole golf course in cuba. Beautiful place to sit and sip Mojitos and Caipirinhas. The drinks are excellent here. Go here for a great vibe.

Beautiful house and interior! We loved the room and balcony that looked out on the sea! Rooms were not very clean (hair and ash from cigarette on the floor. An old blood stain on the pillow sheet). Dinner was delicious (it's included in the price, except for the drinks - 4cuc for a glass of wine). Breakfast is also good....
