Our driver wanted to get back to get another fare...it's a good thing the oxen and people jumped out of the way...Check in was fine, our room wasn't... More

We were really looking forward to our first visit to Cuba especially after reading previous reviews. However I am not sure where these people were staying unless they have not experienced the quality of food,entertainment,animation team that are available at other hotels and resorts in other countries. The buffet restaurant was like a bun fight,the location of the chefs cook... More

Also doesn't have a fully stocked bar all the time. No tonic water run out of lemon, Rose wine and numerous other things. Hot water is infrequent and hairdryer only... More

Fantastic beach and wonderful staff. Food - not! You don't go to Cuba for the culinary experience! Barely adequate buffet; large selection but lacking in quality. Warm food wasn't warm, cold food wasn't cold. Very much enjoyed the French a la Carte restaurant and the El Dorado bar and the adjoining pool. Clean rooms and common buildings - though in... More

The beach,staff, food, entertainment and layout of the resort are what makes a resort, and this one has it all. Beach: The beach is excellent.... More
