This is only a 3 star hotel but the staff treats you like you were at a 5. Our stay began with the bellman greeting us with beverages while checking in. Please note; this is an older budget hotel, slow elevator…. but the service and staff are excellent. The food is excellent as Cuban resort food goes. The rooms are... More

It's a great budget place to stay. I was solo and I did not have to pay anything extra, which is harder to find now. It is better than sister hotel Varuazul, so choose carefrully. Islazul, another sister, is lower in quality. There are several good places to eat and getting to the dance area, Calle 63, Beatles, Havana club... More

I booked for about 8 nights, but was out of town and checked in two days late. The receptionist (guy in his 40:s) was really annoyed and did`nt really welcome me to stay in the hotel, because he could`nt find my reservation without putting a little effort on it. When he finally found my reservation, he started slowly acting nicely... More

Second time at this hotel/resort, the room was much cleaner and the room looked like it was freshly painted, service was hit and miss, it depended on who was working the bar, some were really friendly, some were bitter. The front desk were very good, security guards were really nice. The beach was beautiful, the bar moved up to the... More

I spent two weeks at Acuazul and I had an amazing time. The hotel is clean and safe and much better than I had expected for what is rated as a two star. If you are looking for a budget holiday this is a great choice. I read lots of negative reviews and my response is...if you want a 5... More

This was my 4th time to Cuba, first time at this hotel. All the basics are covered at the hotel. Yes the rooms need updating, and things are not perfect but my experience is that is how it is in Cuba. Rooms were clean. Didn't spend a lot of time in the room or in the hotel, Varadero has such...

Location close to the beach with there own beach chairs and parasols (free). Its a all inclusive hotel, what is not my cup of tea. I get irritated looking at the behaviour of some people (not all) when things are for free. I didn't know it was all inclusive, because it was the last hotel after a two weeks group... More
