Our first time here. We loved it!!!!! The pool entertainment staff are fantastic, especially Julio. The resort's grounds are well maintained and cleaned daily. Room are clean and roomy, for a Jr. Suite which is a must if you go. The food is, well, Cuban so don't expect anything like Canadian . We survived for a week mostly on pasta, and fresh eggs cooked as you request. We didn.t go for the food though. The specialty restaurants are good, especially the Italian. The beach is fantastic and the ocean is awesome. You must do the snorkelling tour for 25cuc. Well worth it. Staff will except tips in loonies and toonies as they exchange with guests leaving after their vacation. Go to the Commercial Centre bank to exchange your money, as better exchange rate than hotel. It's a 3 min walk from resort. Ask for Havana Club rum in your drinks as it's their premium. The Ice Coffee with cafe liquior are fantastic, obtained at the lobby bar. Take lots of flip flops, hair clips for women staff and baseball hats etc for men staff. They will except anything you can leave behind. Wear clothes you can leave for them. The pool/bar staff are the friendiest we've encountered at any resort in the Caribbean, We would go back in a heartbeat. There are people there from Ontario who stay 8 to 12 weeks. It's a cheap place to winter and all inclusive.
