This is the best hotel we have stayed in Cuba, everything is nice and clean. Food was excellent, fresh and delicious. But best of all is the people who serve you.

The hotel has access to the best beachfront. Staff are friendly and it is maintained well. To get the best experience at the hotel, opt in for the upgrade to LEVEL 5. This will give you the access to the lounge where the drinks and food is higher quality.

We travelled to Cuba in mid-January with another couple, and spent seven days at this resort. We were greeted with sparkling wine, checked in a few hours early and got upgraded with ocean view rooms. The resort is a fair size, with lots of sitting space inside and outside. While the weather was not as warm as we would have... More
