Secluded is Ocean Casa del Mar’s middle name – an unspoilt beach unravels right on your doorstep. Plus, there’s plenty in the way of bars and restaurants.
This place has only just opened its doors, so everything’s looking fresh from the wrapping. Outside, there’s a stylish pool scene, and inside, you’ll find eight restaurants, a neon-coloured teen hangout and modern rooms.
The hotel’s parked on one of Cayo Santa Maria’s secluded sweeps of sand. There’s a top-class watersports centre down there, too, so kayaking, windsurfing and snorkelling are all on the cards.

Great experience at Ocean
When visiting Ocean Casa del Mar you can tell that the customer service/hotel accommodations are the best. We were visiting the hotel with part of our family and all areas are super clean as well as the restaurants and pools. Food is great in all the differents restaurants. Rooms super clean and always ready to change towels and keep the minibar fridge full of drinks. During our visit we interact with different levels of employees including the general manager, every body from room keeper to the general manager showed great customer service and also wiling to help the customer all the time. The Beach was beautifull at the same level of other beaches in the country like Varadero Beach or Cayo Coco Beach. Wifi availability is in all the lobby area including rooms too. I would definately come back to this beautiful hotel any time in the future, and I would recommend this to everybody that i know. thanks to all the hotel employees.More
This was my 5th stay at ocean casa Del mar. After hurricane irma We were one of the first to arrive to the resort. The staff and management really amazed me with not only repairing the resort, they used this opportunity to do improvements. A brand new beach was created with giant ships and heavy machinery bringing sand in to expand it. The staff is world class here, truly hand picked and an amazing team. Their spirits and smiles are genuine and create such a beautiful environment. The entertainment team makes you feel like family. Yoa and Lissy do an amazing job at keeping you laughing all day, they make you feel comfortable and like your part of the family. The privilege team treats you like royalty from champagne on the beach to bringing a morning wake up smile with a hand delivered beverage. The food at ocean casa Del mar was already great however now Juan Pierre has really outdid himself since the reopening !! The bar tending staff at any corner of the resort puts a non stop smile on your face. I could go on and on but you need to experience it for yourselves. I could type all of the names of the people that always make my stay extraordinary but I would named everyone on the resort. Honourable mentions : the entire team at oceans casa Del mar !!More
This has to be by far the most beautiful beach I have ever seen, if you can't afford to visit Barbados but want to experience a similar beach go here. The sea is so blue and the sand is pure white, the coral and the fish are incredible. Rooms are modern and cleanish (personally I think they could be cleaner). The buffet food is average, the Italian resturant is good and the Japanese resturant is actually quite enjoyable. You can visit the Resturants as much as you like and don't have to book. There are two pools one is beautiful the other is full of families and kids and has plastic 3* holiday sun loungers. I was disappointed the snack bar around the quiet pool only opened one day then got shut down so we had to eat in the buffet at lunch which wasn't great. The worst thing about this holiday by far was the mosquitos. They are like nothing I have ever experienced. You could not go out without getting bit to death no matter how much mosquito repellent you wore. We couldn't sit out on a night and have a drink as you would get attacked all night by the time you got back to the room you would have no less than 30 bites on a good night. To be honest this really ruined the holiday, it was a constant mission to try get from your room to a Resturant on the evening and it was impossible to enjoy the facilities which I know is not the hotels fault but from the prospective of rating a holiday I would not return on this basis. Also the reception staff really need to learn the word sorry and to smile occasionally they are beyond rude. More
Wonderful hotel and resort. Lovely staff
We arrived at Ocean Casa del Mar on the the 29th August for two weeks but due to hurricane Irma we were evacuated on 7th September. Dispite the fact that the holiday was cut short we still wanted to put a review about this hotel. It is a long transfer from the airport especially for UK flights, as you have already had along journey. But it is well worth it once you arrive at the hotel. Hotel and resort -.Check in was very efficient. Reception area was very clean and modern as you would expect. The grounds are beautiful and are only just starting to get established but over time will get even better. The blocks are well spaced around the resort in a village fashion. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean, modern and with great air conditioning. The walk in, rain head type shower is fantastic. The pools and pool areas are great. Plenty of sun beds which we never had to reserve. Never had a problem changing the beach towels, although some people said they did. Short walk to the stunning beach. Again plenty of sun beds, two bars either end of the beach. Free water sports for guests. Silky soft sand, warm clear water, absolute paradise. Food -.This was low season, so some of the A la carte restaurants were not open but the hotel varied the menu in one of them,so that you could sample each menu. It is the hotel policy not to take reservations for the restaurants but we never had any issue getting into them. The food overall we felt, was of exceptionally high quality throughout from fresh omelettes at breakfast, to paella at lunch to sushi in the evening. We would normally say "remember this is Cuba" but in all honesty, some of this food could not have been better. Congratulations to everyone for preparing and serving very good food. There is a great coffee bar by the reception area called Mikes. It serves fantastic coffee and cakes all day. Entertainment - every evening there was pre-show entertainment by the terrace bar. Some people have been critical that the bar is downstairs but the coffee bar is upstairs. We felt this was a positive.We really enjoyed listening to the various Cuban bands. For us this was a bonus being able to listen to great music and rounding off our evening meal. There was other entertainment later on in the theatre area but we are unable to comment, as we did not go to them. Shop - there is one on site but it is extremely small. More of a kiosk than a shop but you can buy cigarettes, rum etc from here. Out and about - there are two purpose built shopping areas. One in walking distance. It is small and has a couple of market stalls which changes each day.The other you can get to by taxi or the open top tourist bus which costs 2 CUC each way. This one has more shops and market stalls. Staff - Elizabeth in the Oriental restaurant was wonderful. Thank you so much for making our stay here so special. Miss your smile and you. Yunier in the pool bar is a star. Always smiling and acting up. Don't expect to get a drink quickly as he likes to keep you there. Yakimi (Jackie) our housekeeper did a fabulous job keeping our room clean. Always happy and willing to chat. She did us some brilliant towel art every day. The gardeners were always friendly and did a great job. Thank you Fidel (the boss) for overseeing such a great hotel. Thank you to our TUI reps Jayde and Reinier. You both did a fantastic job under very trying circumstances. We can't sing the praises of these two high enough. They had to put up with some very difficult guests, who appeared to be intent on making life difficult and moaning about everything. Negatives - yes there were lots of mosiquites, they were a nightmare. I used every precaution going, but still got badly bitten. The hotel did everything they could do by spraying twice a day. Reception stafff could be a little more helpful especially when you get locked out of your room, which lots of guests did at some point. If you get the opportunity in the near future to go to this hotel, please do, you won't regret it. Ignore the negetatives, go with an open mind and enjoy. Finally, we would like to express our gratitude to the amazing staff and the Cuban people in general, who put the needs of the tourists above their own to ensure our safety with incredible care and good humour. We would not like to go through a hurricane again but if we did, then there is nowhere else we would rather be. Our thoughts are with you all. We hope to visit again soon.More
new hotel, friendly staff, beautiful beach
the hotel was new and the staff were very friendly and I did not feel pressure to provide tips even though I did. The food was not good at all but that was expected. I booked with selloffvacation and i was upgraded to the previlege package with lobster dinner which was very good and 2 hours of internet access. I went in July and the mosquitoes were out of control. we had to run but still not able to avoid them. We could not enjoy the resort at night because of all the mosquitoes. I have been to cayo santa maria before but never experiences so much mosquitoes. Take repellents just in case. The beach was spectacular, very beautiful. The best part of the beach is the one closest to the marketplace which is entrance #3. I have been to better hotels in the are but i will give it a 5 because it is new and well kept, the staff is friendy and do not expect a tip, and the beach is beautiful.More
