This small resort on the ocean is 1 1/2 hours west of Santiago with a backdrop of the little town of Chivirico. We had been there in 2014 and were pleasantly surprised to see guests who were there before. Not much has changed, it is still an intimate small resort with 32 rooms and a very friendly staff. The food... More

This is simply an addendum to my earlier review, based on our third visit there. To start off, the road from the airport to the hotel is now a ''breeze'' - a vast improvement from the earlier trips. In the past this served as a ''dividing point'' and only those who really wanted to visit, came. But the new road... More

First time to Galeones, first time to Cuba. Makes me a Cuba newbie I guess, but I'm a quick study.... Gosh. What to say about this place? Well, first, apologies for the long review but it may help. PM me if you'd like more. Second, know that I research as much as I can, I ping out to the TA... More

Just returned after 2 weeks. This was our 19th year going to Los Galeones. Wilster the manager is making nice suttle improvements. The Staff are all very happy. Food was good. Don't expect 5 star. This is Cuba. The beach bar manager, orlando, has added the option of a pig roast on the beach at lunch time for 40 CUCS... More

I was a little concerned about going to a three star resort. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the great views from the property (its on a hill), private beach (watershoes advised as it is not sandy in the water)with mountain views, and nightly live Cuban music. This was a great place to be with a small group as the... More

This has been one of my favourite vacations to Cuba. The staff are incredible, the resort maybe 3 star but their service is 5 star. Dora, Elizabeth, Jose D, Glenis, Joly, Sandra and Caramelo (chef) really make you feel welcome in their restaurant/bar. Sorry if I missed anyone. The food was good, it was nice having breakfast/lunch as a la... More

Never been to a resort so small and intimate with spectacular views of mountains and sea.Resort is perched on small hilltop about 150m above water.Pretty much everything you need is within one minute.Exception- never had to walk 296 steps down to beach and of course back UP. Advisable to rest several times coming up.Great exercise.We lounged around pool most days.Musical... More

My favourite place for R&R in Cuba. We arrived at about 1:30 am after many delays with Sunwing and a stop at Manzanillo that we weren't expecting. The staff were still waiting to greet us and welcome us back. Sandwiches and drinks ready for the tired travellers. Got the room we had requested (504) and were pleased that most rooms... More

After saying we would never return due to the terrible road we did give the resort another try. To our surprise the road from Santiago to Sierra Mar the sister resort is now great and the road from Sierra Mar to Los Galeones, although not complete as yet, is not terrible. There is a shuttle bus that runs from Los... More

If you want parties, extensive sport activities, and what ever else comes along (a-la-Varadero) this place is not for you. However, if your retired (60's, 70's and 80's), having slogged your life to work and buy a home, save for retirement, watch technology blow you by and see some of your kids move back in, heaven forbid, then this is...
