My husband and I stayed for a week at the beginning of February. After doing a lot of research on Cuba and the different resorts we were quite happy with our stay. Yes the rooms are older, the... Read more mattresses are not pillow tops, and the water pressure wasn't great. The room was clean and everything was in good repair. The resort itself is beautiful with a great beach. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. My suitcase was delayed and finding something to wear was not easy. There is a small store at the resort selling a variety of souvenirs and toiletries. The staff were very helpful in finding me something to wear (I will always remember to bring a change of clothes in my carry on from now on). We only ate the buffet restaurant and snack bar. The food was frankly better than I expected. Good flavour and hot. The restaurant staff were fabulous. We got to know a couple of waitresses and they always helped us find a table when things got busy. We didn't have any problem getting clean towels in our room or in getting clean beach towels. The woman who cleaned our room would leave a different towel or bed spread design everyday. The resort itself was not very busy while we were there but even as it got busier toward the end of our stay they seemed to manage well. The only bar we went to was the one in the lobby. The drinks were good and a variety of mixed drinks were available. No this is not a five star resort by North American standards but we had a very enjoyable week and would stay there again.

My mother, my sister and I booked a last minute trip to this resort as a girls getaway . We know and love Cuba and the Cuban people and this resort did not disappoint. Upon arrival we upgraded to the... Read more Royal Service side which was magnificent, amazing pool and view... The service was outstanding, from Annia at reception, to the butlers who made our stay special (Sergey and Yadil), the bartender at the pool (Lidaimi) and our very own yoga instructor, Victor... (Special mentions to Hernan and Orestes also who drove us around in the golf carts) and to Janet, the manager of the Asian-Cuban Fuzion restaurant! We are grateful for the amazing week we had here and for all the great people we met. As for the food, it is better than what I have had anywhere else in Cuba. The a-la-carte restaurants are mostly good and there was quite an extensive choice at the buffet (always keep in mind that this is Cuba) If you ask for something specific, they will do their best to get it for you. The beach here is absolutely gorgeous... All in all, we enjoyed ourselves here, thanks again to all the beautiful people who worked so hard to make our vacation special! Read less

Feb 9, 2016 - Stephen B - Toronto, Canada

I stayed here during the first week of Jan 2016. I stayed in the standard junior suite facing the pool. The rooms are good, lots of space. They could use a little upgrade but overall they are fine... Read more . They always leave bottled water and stock your fridge with beer and pop which is nice. The staff are all amazing and friendly. There is always someone around to help you. The staff in the buffet were the best. Always had our table ready, they remember and drink orders and had them ready for us. Really great customer service The food was good. I had heard food in Cuba was not that good at resorts but there is a lot of choice here, there are around 6 a la carte and the main buffet and a few grills/snack bars you can get food from. In the main buffet there is a pasta station, meat station and a fish station. During lunch time they have a BBQ near the ocean with Chicken, burgers, red snapper, pork, hot dogs etc which is very nice The lobby area is nice, there is plenty of seating and a bar which is nice when there is bad weather in the area and its all open so you can enjoy the weather and view The beach is the best part of this resort. The beach area is huge, plenty of room for sports, lounging, walking etc. I think it has the nicest part of the beach from the area’s i walked too. The water here is also nice. Clear water and a nice pretty blue. Overall I had a good time here, I would recommend this resort and I would go back. It would be a 5/5 once they do more upgrades to the rooms Read less
