Sand like Grand Beach

Beautiful, extensive white sand beach. The sand reminds me of Grand Beach in Manitoba. Can walk along the water from Club Amigo Atlantico to the seafood restaurant on the cliff.

Great beach to visit off of our resort. The market is just a few steps away with lots to see. There are a few places to eat right at/on the beach as well as get drinks. This beach is for anyone and everyone, public are welcome. There are beds/chairs if you are able to get one, the beach can be... More

We stayed for two weeks in January/15 at the above-mentioned Hotel & really enjoyed it. This was our fourth time there & it's just so very comfortable; a lovely family resort; great beach; fantastic staff; the grounds are manicured & raked daily; an overall wonderful experience! In our opinion, the food was very good at the a la carte restaurants;... More

Been to Cuba 3 times visiting different areas but this beach takes some beating. Brilliant white soft sand and kept very clean. Be more helpful though if more visitors did respect the beach too and clean up their rubbish. Spent hours either strolling along or just relaxing taking in the sights.

We went to the beach one of the days to see around the area. I think our own beach was better in Playa Esmeralda, that's the reason for 4 stars. It's a big beach and you can mix with the locals, sit down for a coffee or a beer and enjoy the hustle around you. There is a market near... More

Get to the Club Amigo beach before 10 and you will get a beach chair, otherwise pay 1$ later. The water was beautiful, but not much fun for snorkelling.

I visited Guardalavaca beach first time after 16 years. It definitely changed. The hotels grew in size and with that, the number of guest of course. The beach seems wider now, but my recollection may be wrong. Still a perfect beach, only you will not have it for your self. Even the market beside the Hotel Club Amigo Atlantico grew... More
