We stayed at La Cabana Nov 3-9th 2013. We are blue green owners and stayed in room 206B( I think? or 106B I can't remember) . At first I was sad that we were on the ground and tried to get them to change it but she wanted to charge us a fee to "upgrade" so I sad no we would stick with the room we had. I am glad we did because being on the ground about 6 units from the end by the pool was great! It was very close walk to anywhere we wanted to go..no elevators or stairs! It was great to walk right out and over to the beach in the morning. The studio room was great, plenty of room for a couple and the kitchen and bathroom were nice. We don't like to have room service so we left the "do not disturb" sign on the door all week and we were not bothered at all. My only room complaint is that the hallway is enclosed and has tile everything so we could hear people walking up the hallway and when people would open and close doors it was very loud…only one night was it an issue..someone had kids an they kept running in and out… they were not slamming the door but it seemed so loud in our room! Luckily that was only an issue once as I am a light sleeper and every little thing wakes me up. So overall I would say the room was great! We would definitely ask for it again.
We did not get a rental car and I am glad we didn't most of what we wanted was within walking distance and when we wanted to go somewhere the buses were cheap, safe and easy to catch. The tour we went on ( abc jeep tour A++) picked us up so a rental would have been a waste of money.
We walked over the super foods the first full day there and spend around $100 on breakfast, lunch and snack items - super foods was close, and great! Great variety of fresh food - we loved the fresh baked bread and enjoyed it all week! We bought hamburger patties and grill items and grilled out one day after our tour - the grills are very nice and the staff come out and light them for you. Prices were somewhat higher than home but I expected that.
The pool was very nice.. I think we were only in it once because the beach was so amazing and we preferred to be out there. They had live bands, dancing, even an outdoor movie one night. Even though it was just the two of us I noticed lots of fun things for the kiddos to do.
We did notice that 75% or so of the people there were older retired folks.. which I love because we are the quiet type and want a relaxing quiet vacation without a lot of craziness and noise.. so if you want a place to chill and relax this is it!
