This hotel cannot be recommended – and the price is too high. We came and the check in took a while as there was only one receptionist and too many guests. We were given a paper which stated the information regarding thoe hotel and area – however it was in the native language and they didn’t have a copy in... More

I stayed at this resort Feb 2- Feb 14, 2014. I have not seen any updated reviews since August 2013-. First- I chose this only based on price. This is my first time in Matanzas and I am comparing this hotel to other 2.5 start resorts I regularly stay at in Cuba. Price was $ 798.00 all inclusive for 2... More

I've debated for a little while about writing about this resort, but finally decided I should write something. We'd decided to go to Playa giron to see the museum, do some diving and just check out the area that is so famous. On arrival we were happy the layout of the resort. Rather than just a big building with a... More

I have stayed in this hotel on no less than 4 separate occasions - so I suppose that I am rather biased. I think that it is a bit like marmite - you either like it or you don't. The food is not great although it is plentiful, but there is always an ample supply of drink. The accommodation is... More

If you want to feel like you have a small simple house by the beach and spent some days living slow exploring this part of Cuba,then this is a place for you.It is an all inclusive hotel but it does not look like that.The hotel seems like a village consisting of one floor houses having quite a distance between them.The...

This place lets you see the real Cuba - although it is a 2(+) hour drive from Varadero, the drive is interesting, and it gets you out of the tourist ghetto. The food was fine - more fish than a 3 star in Varadero, and lots of meat for meat lovers. The coastline is rocky, but there is a beach... More

Comfortable older resort , Fine for a night or two but would not spend any longer. Food was fine. Drinks were basic. Nice pool and beach. Close to Museum about Bay of Pigs. Interesting to visit even if it is a little bias. .

I would rather stay in Casa when returning to Playa Giron. The hotel, although located right by the sea, is quite neglected. The restaurant is just terrible. I had one of the worst food poisoning whilst staying at this hotel. If you consider staying there, go ahead, but I would highly recommend you eating out in one of many local... More
