My wife and I stayed at Club Villa Jibacoa from Jan 22nd to Jan 29th.I must admit we picked this resort because we got a really good deal on it. Well I must say that it was well worth it!
It is a lovely small resort, tucked nicely in a small mountian range. It is a nicely spread out, the grounds are beautiful. The grounds keepers work very hard to keep it so. The beaches were also nice, it was unfortunate that we were there in a bad week as there was alot of jelly fish washing ashore. This also had the ocean unacessable for most of the time we were there. What little snorkelling I did get in was well worth it as many fish are seen just a few feet off the beach.
Some of the best staff would be found at this resort. From the housekeepers with thier towel art, keeping the rooms very clean to the grounds-keepers every morning on the beach cleaning up the jelly fish and seaweed, the bartenders are simply wonderful,(you have to try the spanish coffees, a work of art). The ladies at the front desk were friendly and courteous, and while a small animation team they tried hard. Do go on the hikes they offer. The one to farm was quite informative. The Cuban people are among the nicest I have ever met. The second hike up the mountian is not for the weaker or unfit. It's about a half hour of hard steep climb up a small dirt trail. well worth the exertion as you get a great view over the resort. The farmers are friendly and let you sample some local fruit.
There are a few restuarants off the resort, I did not personally go, some of the others did with mostly good reviews. There is also a couple small sounvenir stand of the resort, both are run by locals and have good selections.
The resort has only one restuarant, the food was the usual Cuban food. There was always enough to eat with wonderful waitresses. The best meal was breakfast, especially the omellets. We did eat once at the al la Carte, it was also a good meal.
The pool was small but never crowded, there was always chairs available.There was a snack bar by the pool , just hamburgers, hot dogs and fried potato chips all very good.
If your looking for a party place this is not the place for you. If your looking for a nice quiet place to relax in the sun, this is it. We met a lot od really nice people here, many have been to this resort several times and plan to keep coming back.
