Buffet food horrible, do not be late or they will have nothing left to eat they do not believe in replenishing anything, we booked a tour with Transat to Havana and our bus was involved in a head on collision with a cab, when we got to the hotel all shook up no one at the hotel was informed of...

We left for MCSM on February 22nd for a week vacation. We flew with Airtransat. This is my third time visiting Cuba (I have been to Cayo Guillermo and Varadero). Beach/Resort The resort is small and pool/beach areas are very clean. The beach is beautiful and during calm days the water is incredible. Where we sat, the water got fairly... More

Our trip was mid-Feb and the weather was all over the place. We missed the rain but got a couple of chilly days. Temp range: 22-30 degrees. Sunny, windy but not humid. This resort is a good size and nice atmosphere. Nice staff but they like to be tipped. Slow restaurant service if very busy. Buffet was not to my... More

We were at MCSM from Jan.29th to Feb.5th. We had booked Elegance Club. Off the bus, we were welcomed with drinks and dancers, what a great way to start your vacation! Check-in was quick and very well organized. Within fifteen minutes of our arrival we were in our room. Room: Cuban style deco, very bright and clean, comfortable bed, mini... More

First let me begin by saying I traveled the week of Feb. 9th, and I have to agree with SaskBeachBums review, I myself was ill. While this was my first trip to Cuba I did not have high expectations on the cuisine, however as with any place you travel you can always find something to eat, this was not the... More

We’ve been to Cuba now for the 20th time, so we know what to expect from this country. First time we were there was in 1976. We just came back from a 2 week stay. From Feb. 7th to Feb. 21st. It is certainly the last time there. The biggest scam in CUBA is the internet. Be aware than they... More

Note regarding review by SaskBeachBums: while I appreciate that what they experienced was real to them and I feel bad that they did not enjoy their vacation, please take their review as a one off and not the norm. We did not come across anyone else who was not enjoying themselves and this really is a great “Cuban” resort. We... More

This was a last minute trip for our 15th anniversay. It was absolutely perfect in every way. October can be very risky when travelling to the caaribean so we weren't too sure what to expect. There wasn't a single drop of rain for the entire week. If anything, it was the hottest trip that we have ever had. The resort... More

This is a fantastic little resort. It is aging a little but for the most part it is quite lovely. The beach is absolutely fantastic! The week we were here we had some calm days where the water was like glass and some very wavy days where you couldn't even go into the water. The food is good, I've had... More
