I'm an American who decided to visit this beautiful country, but i made the worse mistake of my life by staying here. A lot of friends said it was good and cheap, but now i know why it was so cheap. I have a 4 year old who got eaten by mosquitoes almost every night, the place is dirty, it... More

Brutal resort, urge you to avoid it if at all possible. Went there to dive and while diving in the Bay of Pigs was beautiful, the group was too large, the DMs were impersonal and our first dive was too short (we were only out there around 30 minutes). But this was certainly the highlight of our stay at Hotel... More

For the great location by the sea we booked a room in the government own Hotel Horizontes Playa Giron. But the location is the only good thing about this hotel. It is VERY run down. The bungalow was obviously not cleaned, when I touched the floor my finger got black and dusty. There was an old cockroach nest behind the... More

As frequent visitors to Cuba, we tend to avoid the larger 'resorts' in favour of low-key spots such as this (Don Lino being another example). First, the good: You feel like you're part of the local community there. It wasn't until the last day or two of our stay that there was a sudden influx of non-Cuban tourists; up until... More

I went diving with the dive centre here and was very unimpressed with their operations. They take massive groups of people out 8-10 people per DM and go to really uninteresting sites and do 30min loops. It was impersonal and really not worth the money. Sad thing is there are no alternatives, so my advice is save your money and... More

…if you love and live-to-dive, like I do…take the 15-min. 3 CUC return Guama bus ride from Hotel Playa Giron to Caleta Buena where you could enjoy some good Ol’ boat diving for a spectacular change of scenery. No big crowds and Guillermo, the fun-loving and very safety-conscious Caleta Buena dive center director, would lead me and then the 2... More

We arrived with a lot of hope at playa giron, received a bungalow got installed and went immediately at the beach. There the "lifeguards" suggested us to go further take a 10 min walk to a deserted strip. Once arrived the sea was to wild as a storm was heading our way so we returned to the swimmingpool of the...

Well, consider this hotel an all inclusive 2.5 star hotel, we paid 30 $ per person, for a clean room,all you can drink and all you can eat (per day).Now playa giron itself is a nice cosy village, where I actually went for a hair cut and a shave (done by the village's barber). The beach is nice and clean,... More

This is form my experience one of the worst places in Cuba. They have tons of cabins; most of them are deactivated; no water, no power, or whatever. But some of the cabins are still rented, mostly to Canadians who seem to like the place. It is an all inclusive facility. One has to see the food they offer there;... More

The staff here were very helpful and they tried hard to entertain and offer good service - far better service than some 4/5* Hotels in Cuba - but overall I would have rather stayed in a Casa, and wouldn't darken its doors if all inclusive at 25 CUC's. Food dire - struggled to find anything edible Drinks - plentiful but... More
