I stayed on the "level" and, overall, found it to be a great experience. I stayed in the "ocean view suite" and was very comfortable. Room service was great and the room was clean and view spectacular. The staff on the level were wonderful and made me feel welcomed and for the most part dealt with any issues that came... More

We spent six nights here after a hectic 4 nights in Havana. The hotel was lovely, spotlessly clean, staff were very friendly & helpful. The food was fantastic, we tried all the restaurants & every single one was great in their own themed way. The piñacoladas were divine!! A lovely relaxing place to unwind.

The beach is amazing: clear and warm waters! The hotel has all the normal resort amenities: pool, water sports, games, kids club, restaurants and all that things. However the hotel is old and some of the áreas need a make over (they are doing that I think). For me the worst thing in this hotel is the food! There is... More
