Paradisus Princesa Del Mar Resort & Spa
Exquise resort met een Luxury Ultra All Inclusive formule. Dit hotel is, in tegenstelling tot de meeste All In resorts, heel ‘compact’. Vanuit de halfopen receptie heeft u een mooi uitzicht over vrijwel het hele complex én de horizon, wat direct een gevoel van intimiteit geeft. Aan het strand gelegen, in het noorden van het schiereiland Varadero.
Over Paradisus Princesa Del Mar Resort & Spa
Toen dit resort de deuren opende in 2005 was het voor ‘couples only’. De Spaanse Sol Melia hotelgroep nam het resort in 2006 onder de vleugels en gaf er het label ‘ Paradisus’ aan. Dit kenmerk waarborgt de hoge kwaliteit en service; de Sol Meliá Resorts die onder deze noemer vallen behoren tot de beste van de hotelgroep. Nu zijn niet alleen verliefde stellen welkome gasten; een ieder boven de 18 jaar, al dan niet verliefd, verloofd, getrouwd, samen of single, wordt hier warm onthaald. Dit is de plek bij uitstek om uzelf eens echt te verwennen in een luxe, tegelijkertijd heel relaxte omgeving. Er is een ruime keuze aan eet- en drinkgelegenheden, waarbij de nadruk ligt op de à la carte dinermogelijkheden: Marseille (Frans), Firenze (Italiaans), Sakura (Japans), Bamboo (oosters), Rockhouse (steaks & salads) en de Port Royal Grill open air restaurant (verse vis en lokale grill specialiteiten). In The Raquet Club House kunt u 24 uur per dag terecht voor lichte maaltijden, een snack en een drankje. Inbegrepen zijn de lokale èn internationale drankjes (ook alcoholische), wijn, bier en cocktails aan een van de vijf bars. Verder is er een gevarieerd aanbod aan water- en landsporten. Een groot freeform-zwembad met aangrenzend zonneterras en vijf whirlpools die over het resort verspreid liggen. U kunt een (salsa) dansje wagen in de nachtclub, tot in de kleine uurtjes geopend met livemuziek en professionele shows. Een spa met een uitgebreid aanbod aan behandelingen maakt een verblijf extra aantrekkelijk.

Het schiereiland Varadero is de belangrijkste strandbestemming van Cuba. Het heeft een langgerekt, fijn wit zandstrand van ruim 20 kilometer aan een doorzichtige, blauwgroene zee. Voor de kust ligt een koraalrif met tientallen duikplekken, u kunt hier legio (water)sporten beoefenen. Strandliefhebbers kunnen rustig wegdromen op het prachtige strand. Het vertier is voornamelijk aanwezig bij de diverse resorts van Varadero. Maar ook in Varadero zelf zijn er diverse uitstekende restaurants en is er een royale keuze aan winkeltjes. Varadero is hoe dan ook een perfecte strandbestemming in aansluiting op een reis door Cuba of als strandbestemming op zich.
"Not bad, but not great either"
Major points: if you travel alone, if you are young - chose another hotel, its for older people and for couples, or elderly couples I've heard great things about Varadero and hotels there, and when I was booking a hotel for my vacation, I was also reading some reviews and checking the price/quality ratio. At this point I can only compare my experience to my parents and friends', but I wouldn't stay there again. I spent 3 weeks of my vacation there and I probably should've switched the hotels. The food was bad, really bad in my opinion, it was the same every day and it didnt taste at all. So in case you are worried to gain weight with all you can eat hotel, here you might even lose some some kgs, so can be a little positive. The entertainment is all the same, and not only it's the same its boring . Once again I can't compare it to other hotels, but also after talking to some other guests who travelled to Cuba before, they preferred staying in other hotels. The prices are crazy, for massages and any additional services. The only little plus of this hotel , that you can go diving for free (but only one time of course), but still, I'd rather pay for diving separately and save for the hotel costs. Staff was ok, but only when you tip them well, if you just arrived and they see you for the first time, good luck getting your drink! At the cantine, even the tips did work sometimes I would finish my meal and they would bring me my drink when I was about to leave or wouldn't get it at all. And one more thing, if it's the first time your are going to Cuba and planning to travel much, you'll be picked up first and dropped off last, so next time i'll chose a hotel in the middle of peninsula, and not spend so much time in the bus during the excursions.
"Sadly, quite disappointed."
I have never done a review in all of my travels. Truly never felt the need, until now. I've had some time to review the trip and when people ask how our trip was I need to be honest and say just OK and I actually would not recommend this property at this time. First, it is the beginning of off season. We did not expect the red carpet treatment what so ever. We actually never expect that type of treatment when we travel. We are pretty low maintennace and easy to please. We were offered a discount (like everyone visiting the resort at this time) to upgrade to the Royal section. Not our cup of tea as we do not want someone to wait on us hand and foot. We are active and enjoy getting our own drinks, booking a la cartes, etc. Very pretty section for sure. We would walk through it each morning. Here is why I felt compelled to write. We had absolutely no idea who/where the daytime entertainment staff was?!! Whether we were at the beach or poolside, not ONE single event took place as advertised. No stretching, exercising at the pool or beach, games, NOTHING. Wait, my apologies...at 11:30 all of a sudden you could find staff on the volleyball court...playing amongst each other with little participation from the guests. This blew our minds as there were clientele that would wander looking for something to take place. Now, giving the staff the benefit of the doubt, maybe the hotel does not provide the crew with a microphone to announce the activity??? However, I highly doubt that is the case. They just hid. Bottom line. We watched it happen. One day poolside, there was no music whatsoever. None. We don't ask for much from staff, that's for sure. A little guided stretching or movement would have been wonderful. Such a disappointment. Lastly, the food was the exact same thing at every meal. I will chalk this up to the off season and the lack of variety for obvious reasons. No need to over indulge in wasted food. I've tried to keep an open mind but will not recommend this resort to anyone. I guess we should have dug much deeper into the activity level of the clientele? Read some more reviews? Not too sure how we could have been better prepared for "no options" daytime. Time to decide which staff truly want to be there and engage the guests. I get it, it must be hard at times when you are working with only 30-40% capacity. Someone must love the interaction to make these activities happen!!! The grounds are quite nice. Far, far too many smaller pool/hot tubs around the resort either not working or drained. The spa hydrotherapy tubs weren't even working? Crazy. Anyhow, not at all worth the price at this point in the season. Go someplace else for a better overall experience. Maybe it changes in high season, we won't try again...
This is our 4 th day here at paradises princess del mar in Varadero Cuba. We are staying in the Royal Service area. The grounds of this hotel are nice and bright with the many beautiful gardens and interesting scenery and are kept clean. But booking the Royal club was a Big waste of money! Before I go into all the many negatives I will give kudos to the few good workers here. Dayllen in the racquet club snack bar is amazing! Marlene our day time maid is fantastic! William our butler is also great. The Royal service desk and bar may have 1 or 2 good workers there seems to be more who lack customer service skills. At the Royal bar it Seems like you have to go to the bar yourself there if you want a drink. Only once or twice in the hours we have sat in there were we offered a drink at our table. This evening we were the only ones there and still were not waited on as you would expect anywhere especially in the "Royal area". Service is definitely a top priority. As for our Royal suite..it is tired looking and dated. Our shower drain was block the 1st time I showered and flooded our bathroom. Our power went out and we called and they sent a maintenance man up. Sadly he could not speak English well and could not answer us as to if he needed to get in our room to fix it. Eventually our power came back on. The wait staff at the royal pool are completely rude and ignore you. When we got to the pool area today my husband went to the bar and asked for a sun umbrella that you must have to request as we were never offered it. Eventually someone brought us one.. then we noticed another couple ask for lounge cushions. Funny how we were not offered them when we asked for the sun umbrella. Like they are a big secret and not available to all Royal guests. We have been one of only 4 couples sitting at the pool and couldn't get service at all. My husband and I waited for over 1/2 hour and nobody came to offer us a drink today or yesterday. So then hubby finally went to the bar himself he was still completely ignored and had to interrupt the staff conversation to order a drink. Feels like you are inconveniencing them to try ask for anything. While sitting around the pool hotel staff occasionally walked by with there heads down looking at their cell phones, never acknowledging that you were there. There was a bunch of cigarette buts beside a pool lounger that were disgusting. Although clearly a rude guest put them there no staff seemed to even look at the mess to clean it up. There is no way they were not noticed. The service at the Royal club beach was no better. There was up to 5 staff standing around talking at the bar acting like you weren't even there. Last evening the Restaurant inside the Royal area was closed apparently due to lack of people in the Royal area. Also the Royal area the pool snack bar was also closed. When asked if they would be open tomorrow the only answer they had was to stare blankly at you and shrug their shoulders. It seems very few staff here understand English even a little. It is so hard to communicate with them. We are very disappointed with the service here especially in the Royal area. We would have been better off saving a ton of money and being over in the main area. Seems that we have to go over there for everything anyway. Sometimes the wait for a ride over in the golf cart seems to take forever. Again if we saved money and were over there at least we would be somewhat close to a place to eat. The main lobby is a disappointment. Just like mostly everywhere here you can't seem to get service without going to the bar yourself. I tried getting the attention of a waitress who walked by us a few times but we could not get her attention. Seems like some staff here spend more time trying not to work then working and serving the guests This resort is affiliated with the Melia hotels but does not even come close to the level of service that we are accustomed to when staying at Melia hotels in Cuba. It is rated as a 5 star...but even by Cuban standards it is more like a 3 star if that. I don't consider us as hard to please and have stayed in Cuba many times without problems. We are very very disappointed by this hotel and other than the few I mentioned above we are also extremely disappointed by the majority of the staff. We have spoke to many other couples some who have stayed here before. No one is satisfied with the service, the rooms or the Royal service. One couple spoke to the manager who said he would find them to talk again the next day. They never seen him again. They said 3 years ago this place had great service and an amazing Royal service restaurant, but this time there is no buffet as advertised in the Royal service area. And what food is available is crap... I do not recommend this resort. It is a disappointment from the Royal suite to the service and cleanliness. We have a few days left to go here, I will put a follow up review up at the end of our vacation. If you do already have a vacation booked to come here soon be sure to bring a ton of bug spray. Met a lady today who had over 200 bites and had seen the resorts doctor. We haven't counted our bites but also have a lot too. So bug spray is a must.
"Has potential but needs a revamp"
We were offered this hotel originally for out holiday and initially thought it looked great but the we read the reviews and booked at the iberstar Varadaro instead. Unfortunately we couldn't get in the for the first night so had to stay at the Paradisus for one night. When we first checked in I thought it looked lovely. Nice low rise buildings and pool area and nice beach. Check in was smooth and we were sent off to find out rooms by ourselves which was a bit odd. We were told the luggage would follow. However 2 hours later it still hadn't arrived. We rang reception and were told we had to fetch ourselves?. The restaurant is nice and it's great there is an outside eating area. The bar staff are also really lovely. The next morning we had an hour round the pool and then it started to rain so I thought I'd go to the gym...What a joke. 3 or 4 treadmills with only 1 working which was all sunken. Only some of the bikes working too. For a 4 5 star resort this just isn't acceptable. When we checked out the rain was torrential so we took the umbrella from the room to walk up with our luggage but no a maid shouted us and said we couldn't take the umbrella. I explained we would return it but we had to get absolutely drenched walking to reception without it. Surely a little trust would go a long way???. The grounds and gardens are not really looked after. Fountains not running broken tiles etc. Our room however was really nice. Spacious clean and newish. Its such a shame as this resort has so much potential. A little TLC would go such a long way. We were so glad we moved after a night but don't worry if you are booked here as it's clean etc just needs a bit of thought into getting some of the basics right.
"Fantastic time in Cuba especially my first time at the Paradisus Princessa, winderful Resort"
Wonderful hotel, so clean, food fantstic, as was entertainment (top notch) staff so friendly and helpful. Beach spotlessly clean, clear ocean and very warm. I would reccommend this hotel to anyone looking for comfort, a great introduction to Cuba. I met many who had been several times to this resort, one family 25 times!! (twice a year), and all said the same thing - they will return. I feel a very well managed Resort. The Royal Service offers a butler, and we had Yasnibis(Jazz) who was excellent.
