Reviews for Starfish Cayo Santa Maria
Our stay at the Starfish was very good, weather and of course the beach was amazing. The food was very good, service was great, grounds were kept very neat and tidy, rooms were cleaned well, over all we had a great time. On November 18th, my mother and myself will be returning to the Starfish for a week of relaxation.

This is a stunning place for a beach holiday. Our TUI rep Jayde was amazing she did everything to help us English guests out. Extra gatherings and meals. After Issues with the pool, using the derelict side of the resort's pool wasn't ideal so the beach was great. The beach bar staff were amazing remembering our drinks and having a queuing system was fair too! But the lobby bar staff were awful rude and very anti British. I stood at the bar for ages they would serve everyone till I shouted at him hello I am here!! If your looking for a peaceful picturesque beach holiday then this is a good place

The grounds are well groomed. Facilities are well maintained and clean compare to others. It's a good size, not too big and not too small. I think its just right. There is an identical half to this resort but it's closed. Staff I think were excellent - Very friendly and helpful specially the beach staff in charge of entertainment. The beach is beautiful fine white sand. Although, during our stay the water was often wavy because of hurricanes approaching. Stage entertainment was somewhat lacking as some nights had no stage shows. But they always had singers at the lobby bar. One big complaint I have is the a la carte restaurant. First of all there's only one, and the only one they have has little or no air conditioning. I was sweating inside and couldn't wait to just get out and go to the buffet next door. We requested to have birthday arrangement in the a la carte. Unlike other resorts, management did not bother to provide a birthday cake or some decoration. We were a big group ( 30 people) and we were seated separately. No cake, no decoration, no happy birthday wish from staff (who probably were not told by management there was a birthday). Although, there was a smaller group ( 5 people) who had a birthday cake and decoration - but not us. Very disappointing!!!!

Arrived here from the cayos due to the hurricane .This hotel is badly needing a full refurbish .Rooms stink of damp and have there own bug zoo.Food was poor at the buffet and was not covered flies everywhere.The hotel staff excluding the people on reception were very helpfull .If your going to Varadero stay at one off the better hotels Avoid this 1 .
Stayed at the starfish at the end of Aug until the 5th Sep on two weeks vacation Must say that I was concerned about some of the reviews but these where unfounded as I found the hotel and staff to be more than up to the task of making this a pleasant and relaxing experience. The bar and restaurant staff where polite and helpful with any request made of them Evan if the items or services where not available. Reception staff always helped with service or housekeeping needs. Hotel grounds are well maintained and the staff attempt to keep the pool area and bars clear of empty cups ( plastic by the pool ) cleared most of the time but on weekends when the Cuban locals made up a large number of guests this was a difficult task to say the least. The general manager Raul is always around and is a very approachable and intelligent person who will answer any question you have about the resort in a honest and frank fashion, I also recommend that you do the rum tasting event that he runs on a Saturdays As it is extremely informative and gives you a good insight into the different types of rum in Cuba. On the minus side the rooms in the half of the hotel are dated and in need of upgrading and the mini bar ( fridge) in the room is only stocked with one bottle of water a day and not the stocked mini bar as claimed by Thompson in there advertising. So to sum up go hear with a open mind and make your own decision about the starfish. Ps didn't see one cockroach during the hole two weeks.
