I have stayed here twice and I prefer the Villa La Mar to the Mar del Sur. The rooms have balconies, the beds more comfortable. The food is decent by any standard and as good as any other Cuban budget hotel. I never got sick here, unlike some Cayo Santa Maria hotels. Clean hotel, decent service, but watch out for...

Hotel was surprisingly in good condition for a 2 star. Food wasn't very great but one night they had a seafood dinner which I enjoyed. Staff were great and resort was surprisingly very clean (even cleaner than some 4 stars in Cuba that I've been to)! I went with a buddy (two 20year olds) and it was perfect for just...

Thank God when you pay for 1 you play at 2 (Mar Del Sur) so I slept at Villa La mar but spent all my time at Mar Del Sur. Villa La Mar is closing for good on May 1,2014 and is being turned into a Military hotel so needless to say all the workers are out of a job...

Went back again (last April/May), with a friend instead of the gf. That in itself was a learning experience. My friend loved it because: a) he's frugal like myself, b) plenty of cubans around (in and out of the resort) c) CRAZY people seem to gravitate to this resort. The regular entourage consited of 3 canadians, a potential tranny and...

Recently went to Villa La Mar for a week. This is definitely only a place to sleep while in Cuba. The food at the resort is not so good, I fed all my "meat" to the cats that hang around outside. Even tried the à la carte one night and it wasn't very good. My boyfriend and I decided to...

So some of the other reviews are a little scary, but honestly this place isn't that bad. It's a little run-down, but it's clean and the staff are friendly and eager to please. On our arrival, the room we were given had an overwhelming smell of mildew. We simply couldn't breathe, so we asked to change rooms and they happily...

First of all, it was my first trip to Cuba. Beach was AMAZING no doubt. I went on the third week of August and the weather was PERFECT, HOT & clear sunny sky to be precise. The hotel: Food was good, Idk why people are complaining, I'm not picky, I'm not fat either. Pool was not so crowded, played reggaetton&...

This was our second year at Hotel Villa La Mar, and it felt like coming home when we walked back in to the place! We spent 7 weeks at Villa La Mar, and while our friendships haven't changed since last year...a few things have!! You still experience the intimate feeling and warmth of a small hotel, but you now have...

My wife and I found ourselves looking for accomodation in Varadero at 3am so we had to settle for any hotel that had an available room. So we found ourselves staying the rest of the night at Villa La Mar. The hotel is so so. Our room was spacious with a balcony but was very dated. The mattresses were not...
