i love my trip but the hotel, the beach need a lot of love, the place is big, really big, so if you dont know that the beach is separared in 3 place, you dont know that the animation is at the left and you go at the right you think no animation. if you dont know that the cigar loundge is open you dont go and ... the food is the same, for lunch and for supper, i found out the last they that they have rice and meat neer the beach... but the staff is wonderfull, that why im going back
Stayed for 2 weeks from January 25 to Feb 8 and we have been here many times before. Yes the place is showing it's age but it is one of our favourite holiday places mainly because of the people and the beach. Special thanks to Ariel at the pasta bar and his wife Yulien, our friends, for making our time there so special. And also thank you to Danny for the shrimp meals Also thanks to Noel at customer service for helping us get our room. The beach depth depends on the tide and there is a most useful chart in the front lobby that tells high and low tide times as well as the weather forecast. The water was warm and has the most beautiful colors as the water is shallow quite a way out and is nice and sandy with very few rocks if you go to the area to the right. We will definitely return again.
Just got back from the Mojito - we thought it was great value! Remember you are in Cuba!ROOM - perfectly fine, bring a face cloth, tissues and a universal bath plug if you are so inclined - awesome water pressure in the shower and there is a tub but no plug.FOOD - delicious homemade bread and rolls; lots of choice at the buffet for all meals. Some folks bring jam, p. butter and maple syrup. Al la cartes were nice and quiet - we liked the food and the piano player was really good. Bring bug spray and use it before you see any bugs if they love you! Snack bar was excellent too.BEACH - there are 2 boardwalks to the beach - -facing the beach take the left one to be closest to the bar/snack bar - high tide means there is often little beach on this side. Take the one to the right and there is another smaller bar on the beach (closed on Sunday) and a wide beach - great walking! The only washroom close to the beach is on the right side facing the ocean near the beach. Bring your own toilet paper!ENTERTAINMENT - there was no entertainment on the stage(it was being renovated) but lots of live music - it was really good and we liked the solos or smaller groups better than the big productions we have seen before in other places.BAR - quality of drinks is not the same as we have at home so we picked up a bottle at duty free and used this for some of our drinks - bring your own travel mugBEST KEPT SECRET - the Cigar Lounge (half way down the right boardwalk) is amazing and it opens at 6 pm - live music around 9:30 pm, but we went at 6 pm for a quiet pre-dinner cocktail with Freddie - amazing! Watch him juggle the bottles and cups. The bands were excellent - great place to be!GIFTS - we left 1 peso in the room each day and tipped numerous times - Freddie told us that he makes the equivalent of about $31 Cdn. per month and relies on tips to survive. If you want to be really helpful Freddie needs a few things for the bar: bar tools, bottle toppers (the pouring kind), Clamato mix (instant powder), electrical tape, electrical wire for his entertainment system, a large container with a plastic lid to store his mint and someone to fix his bar size dishwasher! Personally he needs Claritin (he can get it but it is very expensive), Pepto Bismal or any pharmaceuticals - if he gets too much he can share with others.All in all a great week of sun, relaxation and friendly people - and the realization that we have life easy in North America!
Looks like 1970's, every thing ok, nice swimming pool, room big, but the food is the worst I've ever had; orange juice is a powder drink!The quality of the entertainment is pour, but ok; actually the overall problem is about quality, and for me the drinks and food were very very bad.
We were in building 15 which was well situated and close to everything but the beach. Everyone had a good walk to get to the beach but it was a pleasant stroll getting there. Our room was very large but my mattress had a huge hole in the side. It did not make the bed uncomfortable at all but just wondering if there was something in there kept me awake. I did tell the front desk and they did change the mattress but the new one had an even longer hole in the side! Back to the desk again! This time my husband's mattress had been changed but mine was still the same! At this point I am getting very frustrated! Back to the desk again! My mattress was finally changed to one with no holes. Other than this inconvenience and climbing 3 stories everyday our room was great! Not complaining about being located on the 3rd floor, as we really needed the exercise! The buffet was very small in comparison to other resorts we have been to! The side dishes remained the same throughout the week but the main meat changed most days. The pasta bar was a pleasant change for the palate! The pool was a bit cold especially in comparison to the warm waters of the ocean. The entertainment staff are very friendly and personable. Daya was very helpful and entertaining. Lots of lounge chairs at the pool and on the beach! There is a small market about 10 minutes down the road where you can get a better rate of exchange for your money than at the hotel. Not sure wh,y but when I asked for cold milk they put an ice cube in the glass.
