This was our first time visiting Cuba and all I was looking for was some sunshine and relaxation. Our travel agent recommended the Paradisus Princessa del Mar, and she sure sent us to a great place! The beaches were gorgeous. We'd go down to the beach and the staff would find us a cabana and two loungers where I could...

On behalf of our group, we had a fantastic time staying at this lovely resort. It is indeed a jewel in paradise. The facilities are beautiful, the rooms very comfortable, the ocean beach gorgeous, the entertainment very enjoyable but most of all we would like to thank the staff for always being so courteous, friendly and accommodating. Our expectations were...

This winter we spent another beautiful vacation in Varadero. This was our 6th year in a row at this wonderful place. We had tried some other hotels in Cuba, but this one surpassed all others and we keep coming to Pincesa del Mar year after year, 2017 being the 6th one. Each time we arrive here, it feels like coming...

To Varadero for a few days relaxation after a week touring Cuba. This is a well-established, planned and landscaped resort situated at one of the best, deepest stretches of Varadero's perfect beach. The beach made it for us, and we spent every day there. Good, permanent, palm-roofed sunshades, ample recliners. Regular service from the beach bar if you wanted it...

I read many reviews before we visited this resort and was prepared to be a little disappointed. However, our room was clean, the food was better than I expected and the beach was gorgeous. We ate at the Japanese a la carte and enjoyed the company of the other diners while the chef put on quite a show. The Bamboo...

I can't say enough about this adults only resort. The food, service and atmosphere was excellent. The beach is beautiful with sand like baby powder. Activities every day and night. Would highly recommend and travel to this resort again in the near future.

This resort, probably one of the best in Varadero, if not the best, is competing with the likes of other Spanish hotel chain properties on the Riviera Maya (Mexico) and Punta Cana (Dominican Republic) on price, but unfortunately not on quality of service and maintenance. You might argue that Cuba should be given some slack because of the 50 some...
