My 29 year old daughter have just returned from this hotel
We are both well travelled and stayed in the 6star Versace Hotel in Australia at the end of last year so were rather apprehensive about staying in this hotel after reading some of the reviews.
Please remember that Cuba is still a relatively poor country so I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel.
There was always plenty of food in the buffet to choose from but, this may not be the hotel for you if you are a Brit looking for burgers and chips!!
Beautiful white sandy beach. Take or hire a snorkel. Feed the numerous fish with a banana from the buffet. No need to go on a snorkelling trip there are so many fish to be seen a few feet away from the beach.
We stayed in one of the news rooms. A few teething problems with the air con and make sure your balcony door locks properly. Ours didn't in the first room but room no. 3 was fine.
Huge new pool with hardly anyone in it most of the time probably because it was their low season.
Weather was very, very hot and humid with hardly any rain. New buffet restaurant in the open which meant lovely views of the beach but, stifling hot at times even at 9 in the evening.
Because we had been to Cuba before and we were only there for a week we only did one excursion. Horse riding, speed boat and a visit to someone's home in the countryside. This was a very humbling experience. Makes you realise just how spoilt we really are with all of our luxuries, gadgets etc,
This is probably only a 3 star hotel but, for the money I paid I had an amazing time. As I said before maybe not for everyone. If you want Carlsberg, burgers and chips for every meal this place probably isn't for you. Stick to Benidorm or Magalluf !!
