Bit run-down but then its a budget hotel with everything included. Once you realise your there for the beach and water, the hotel is fine. The location is great and we had a real good time - remember to book the a la carte restaurant -worth it.

Consider myself a fair reviewer but I cannot say anything good about this place. To clarify we were only there on a day pass, thank goodness! Staff were very unfriendly, and the place was ridden with flys, Mosquitos and insects. The pool looked like it hadn't been cleaned for years. If you want to spend time at the beach i... More

Reading many of these reviews was really funny, because people seem to expect something extraordinary from this hotel, especially in Cuba. I've been to Cuba myself 5 times as of now, Ancon was my 4th. I can honestly say that the beach out there is the worst I've ever seen in Cuba, and those who were to such locations as... More

Well this is the first time I have contributed a review to Trip advisor (although I read and benefit from them often - now I have started I will add all my reviews on cuba as it really is a place where one needs info in advance to benefit from and we had experiences from great to mixed to awful)....

We stayed here the first two nights of our Cuba trip. I came to Cuba with low expectations and this hotel met them. The hotel property was poorly maintained. The buffet food at breakfast and dinner was terrible. The only meal we enjoyed was a plated meal at the Italian restaurant on the lower level. Our bedroom, the bedding and... More

The worst experience ever. In all my years of travelling, I have never met people like I met in this hotel. Staff in the dining room are very rude, busy talking in small groups and not doing their work. Every morning, lunch and supper when we went to eat, the tables were dirty and we had to run around to... More

Price would never correspond to the quality of the hotel. I've been there 15 years ago and unfortunately it looks/feels like a camping. Its dirty, messy; with a very poor room service (only two small soaps for a triple room for two days). Noisy air-conditioning and low lighting. Dirty beach and very careless staff. The pool was green in colour.

The Bartender at the pool is the best, he will make you the greatest drinks in Cuba.... He knows how to take car of his clients very well. He will make whatever you ask him to make with fresh fruits and vegetables.

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
