The hotel was OK. Considering the deal I got on the hotel. The good: The check in was quick but be sure to get your towel card at check in as they didn't offer it to during check in. The room was cleaned daily by the maid who left us little notes and did towel/blanket art daily. Given super tiny... More

Just like wherever we go lately...rude, cheap, ever-smoking French-Canadians! I suppose cheaper priced resorts attract those people. The good thing is that no children are allowed there! Eating breakfast was not pleasant in the sweltering restuarant also! We won't be back. Will go back to Mayan Riviera next time...

In fairness we didn't pay a whole lot; but I have paid equivalent and had got more at other resorts in Cuba...This is a 3 star resort so you get what you pay for... If you aren't fussy, love to smoke cigarettes and just want beach and don't mind drinking cheap low grade booze this can be a fun place..... More

We had a great time! The food was ok but could have been a bit warmer. There was always something to eat even for the very picky people! The beach is great, the main pool was good although it seemed there was not enough chairs and shade around the pools! The rooms were great and our maid Clary was fabulous!... More

Although the hotel has 4 stars, it does not have an elevator which might be bothersome for some travellers. Breakfast, lunch and dinner takes place at fixed times and last between 2 and 3 hours, in my opinion this is more than reasonable. All meals are sufficient and above average. I noticed a difference in some products: I tried pizza... More

Thank you to Juan, and our amazing maid Clary for a great week. I am a travel agent, so am well aware of the in's and out's of all inclusives, and the Roc Barlovento surpassed our expectations. Food, yup, it's Cuba, so don't expect steaming hot, seasoned food. The breakfast buffet was great with plenty of options, the omelette station... More

I went alone and a friend met me at the resort. It was my first trip to Cuba. The food wasn't the best, but the restaurants at the resort were good. The staff were amazing, very friendly, maybe a little too friendly with us younger ladies, but it was a confidence boost, so it was all good. We loved the... More
