So I went with my family to this hotel for 10 days in July. It's advertised as a 5 star but even before we went we were told it would be more like a 4 star. Now, I have been to all inclusive resorts before and by previous standards this hotel was poor. Before I mention the negatives I will... More

I really enjoyed my first Cuban vacation at El Patriarca. The beach and water are amazing - so warm! The resort is beautiful, extremely clean and well maintained. I liked the fact that we were in bungalows and not a huge highrise hotel. The entertainment team was great. Jenny is fantastic! So sweet and a lot of fun, and her... More

Our room was situated in block 2 which was near the Lobby,restaurants and Mike café. Our room was very clean and we had 2... More

First impression when you walk into the lobby is great, the decor is nice and modern and the staff is very welcoming. The grounds of the hotel are clean, but its very bare, it doesn't feel very tropical. The rooms were nice and spacious but no view.. As for the food, we expected the worst since its Cuba, but it...

We travelled to this excellent resort the week of Aug 22-29 with our 3 teenage children. Overall it was a great experience. I'll break it down below from the perspective of a first time Cuban visitor: Departure, Travel and Arrival We flew Air Transat out of Toronto Pearson on a ~4PM flight. Not much to report here. The airport was... More

Was okay nothing new, Good food, nice beach to have fun, a lot of historic attractions, different types oh night shows, Airport and city washrooms facilities not the best and you pay before you enjoy sad, very good customer service at the hotel and you have to tip from morning till you go to bed.

First thing I will say is don't be picky with the food, most of it is buffet and its pretty meh considering how many people they have to cater to. My parents ended up bring their own spices, ketchup, and jam because of the reviews we saw and we are so glad we did. The restaurants were a joke! We... More
