So this was my first time to Cuba and My representative at TripCentral told me it was a good place since he was there. Boy was that ever a lie. He first told me he our room would be on the top floor, which it wasn't. We were on the 3rd floor, and the first thing I see is Piss... More

Belleuve Puntarena - Formerly known as Puntarena Playa Caleta I was there in February 2015 and returned again in August 2015. Well, things have changed in 6 months. They have a new Spanish owner. The reason I notice were their uniforms at the Front desk and new faces. The other hotel is still under renovation. Front desk staff is always... More

Well, where do I start. I am not one to complain, but even my husband was shocked when I told him how disappointed I was in my vacation.

It was not user friendly. Alll around disaster... I have travelled to cuba before and have loved every minute, however, this trip has taught me... More

I stayed at Playa Caleta and Punta Rena (they are twin properties) three times myself, and my son, my daughter and my grandson stayed there on their last trip, and they will return. We like Playa Caleta/Punta Rena for its location, and that is, because it is farther from the downtown area and from the strip of more "prestigious" and... More

My family have traveled to many places and was not as disappointed as we were while staying at this hotel.I did not expect for the hotel security to harass my husband. He took a walk to take pictures and was asked what he was doing there. Mind you, my husband was wearing the hotel ID bracelet and he told the... More

I stayed at bellevue palma real in March and wanted a change. This resort did not have a lot of reviews but honestly, I just wanted a quick getaway and for $500 this was perfect. It was busy on the weekends with lots of locals but throughout the week there was maybe 1/3 of the hotel full. It was pretty... More
