Just returned from the Ancon. I have stayed there many times but never in the older part built by the Russians. The woman I spoke to that was staying in that section said it was very dismal. ON the other hand, I have always stayed in the new section, 3 floors all with balconies that you can sit in. You... More

We stayed for two nights at this all-inclusive as part of a tour of western Cuba. The public areas (pool, coffee bar, outdoor entertainment theater) are fine; the rooms are not. The door to our room, although it had a card swipe mechanism, did not have a bolt or locking mechanism. The bathroom door did not have a working handle... More

We stayed in the oceanview room very close to the beautiful Ancon beach. The hotel is clean, has a nice loby and a decent pool. The food was not great, but we are not picky eaters and we always found a few tasty dishes in the main buffet restaurant. However, we didn't like a'la carte restaurants much. Staff is not... More

I enjoyed my week at Ancon. If you stay there get a superior room which are the low-rise units in the new section. they are great! I hear the standard rooms are not very nice but didn't stay there so can't comment. Beach is very nice and never had a problem getting a chair. Food in buffet is so so... More

I'll admit it has been 2 years since I've stayed at this hotel but we will be returning this winter. The reviewers who trash this hotel obviously don't see the gem it is. First: Cuban food is not great at the best of times. Make sure the meat is well cooked and be suspicious of anything that is not cooked.... More

The best. Jesus the bartender is still there and makes the best Spanish coffee. The staff inside and out are great. The food is good but repetitive. The beach wonderful. We will return again. The guest are (sometimes) obnoxious and pushy,impolite and disrespectful to the staff.

Soviet style concrete colossus. Worn out, basic rooms,but OK in Cuban standards. Only one computer connected to internet, which was very slow. So, perhaps forget it. But well, probably you care more about a nice beach and sunshine. Stayed three nights on a Cuban tour. Half of our group (20 people) got some kind of stomach problems from the breakfast... More

Avoid at all costs. I'm going to be brief as I haven't got the energy to write how rubbish this place is. - the room are horrific. Didn't get a floor mat for the bath room, had to share a dingy towel. - we were on our honeymoon and they gave us two single beds with a room with adjoining... More

Given the choice of facing the firing squad or staying here take the firing squad. I suppose this is an example of a forty year old Soviet style all inclusive tropical resort. My room had two twin beds that might have been military cots. It took my extremely noises air conditioner 24 hours to cool down my room. At least... More

This is my first visit to Cuba and only my second in an all inclusive. Being very busy and trusting the agent, we were booked into the Club Amigo all inclusive. This would be a one star experience for me. We had a Tropical room, close to the beach but not facing the beach. Our rooms were number in the... More
