I have to say over all, it wasn't bad...we went as a group of seven, ages 20 to 35. We found everything we needed, food was better then expected for Cuba and You have the use of both resorts... i have to say, the caleta sides buffet was much better. the beach at night, was full of jellyfish, I believe...

This was my 3rd time at Playa Caleta. It has now merged with with the Puntaarena which is the next door resort. Guests can now use amenities at either hotel which I really enjoyed since the scenery doesn't get as stale. I personally thought the buffet and bar at Playa Caleta had better service, was also glad to see that... More

Food was very good! My daughter had a lot of fun. Dakira from the kids club is really good with kids! It was cheaper than the other hotels and I was very satisfied with what I paid. I would like to send a gift to someone who works there. Please contact me if you go to Playa Caleta or Club... More

I went into this assuming we'd be eating in the town every day, that there would be one or 2 days we'd get sick. but this hotel surprised me. Food was pretty decent. we ate for every meal & no one left hungry or sick. Take advantage of snack bars & the pizzeria :) The hotel grounds were a little... More

If you're looking for a cheap vacation with a gorgeous beach, lots of booze but not much else, this place is for you. The food is sub-par throughout all of Cuba (we tried it at 10 resorts and it was bad everywhere, not just here). The staff were excellent and the area was very safe. It was a fun trip... More

We stayed in this hotel in November 2012. There are not many good things to say about this hotel. The bright side was that because of the hotel being almost empty we changed our channel-facing room to sea view rooms (after paying extra, which I think wasn't necessary). So it was nice hearing the waves every night and morning. Another... More

Stayed here with my son and mother, found the hotel to be fine, food was ok (always something to eat) Staff were wonderful. Elevators were a bit concerning at times, lots of groaning, I joked that the next time I came to Cuba I was bringing a whole lot of heavy duty grease. a day or so later I find... More

My husband and i almost skipped Cuba cause we thought the food would be awful. Well I wish we had have gone to Cuba first. We ate more on this vacation than we normally do. The staff were amazing, friendly, courteous and very accommodating. The beach was one of the most beautiful, we walked for hours and never reached the... More
