I was sceptical after the reviews I was reading, but in the final it was just Excellent. The hotel is a hudge complex so you can live either in the main building or in smaller houses ( more quiet, but you have to walk a bit for breakfast, dinner). We had our room with the view on the beach, extremly spatious with living room and a walkable closet. The humidity causes that the room smells a bit and nothing goes dry but this is something you need to calculate with going to Cuba as well having a gecco or small frog in the room. The beach is excellent, hotel offers free water activities, we really enjoied the coctails and food ( you could always find someting as the variety is big), I personnaly enjoyed more the common food than the ala-cart restaurants as we visited them 2x. There is plenty of program / animations going on. The hotel and several travel agencies offers trips directly in the lobby. I recommend this hotel as it was all perfect.
