Stayed in Nov in 2013, and visited some friends there in July 2015. This resort has an awesome beach where you can snorkle directly off the coast. It also has a clothing optional beach, and further west, there is a beautiful 4km stretch of undeveloped, quiet, safe, pristine beach. A real gem which will probably dissappear. I went in Nov,...

I arrived late in the evening and the young man at the front desk was most helpful and friendly. Best service I've ever received at a front desk yet and this is my third time in Cuba. My room was spacious and very clean and I was happy to be close to all amenities. The only thing that wasn't great... More

Been at this hotel when it first opened in 2002. Price was a bargain and it was very good in all aspects. Please note this is the smallest resort on cayo maria, and the last one on the sandy strip, it has a very laidback atmosphere compared to the huge hotels nearby. Now 13 years later... Price still a bargain.... More

A relaxing few days here at the end of a touring holiday. Unfortunately the food was rather disappointing, and the sight of the birds flying over the food in the main restaurant rather off putting. The hotel is fairly dated, however several pools, very good sandy beach and colorful gardens. Plenty of sun loungers and the rooms kept clean and... More
