Hotel: Clean, brand new, comfy beds, big pool that's almost always empty, meticulously maintained, no bugs (unless you brought them into the room with you)
Food: Even as non-pork eaters, we were able to find something great every day at every meal! If you go to this resort and you cannot find something to eat, then you are just being picky. Remember where you are and be appreciative for the work everyone is doing to make sure you are fed!
Recommend : fish fry bar right before the beach. Get there between 1230-1 for the best pick of fish!
Beach : amazing. Patches of coral mixed with sand beach to get into the water. There are fish and other creatures everywhere when the water is calm, bring your snorkel. There are sand fleas however if you put on deet , you'll be fine.
Entertainment team: special note to Orlando who made the stay very enjoyable for us. However, compared to other resorts I've been, the entertainment is fairly transparent and unenthusiastic. Most days I could go a good portion of the day without seeing any of them. Hopefully this improves!
Night Entertainment : for the week we were there, the shows that drew huge crowds were the ones that had CUBAN culture and dance. This is what you're good at, this is why we are watching you in Cuba, and this is what you should Focus on! The shows where this was done were AMAZING, the North American geared shows were boring and lacked culture. The Brass band and the other band should honestly alternate early evenings they were so good and got everyone on their feet!
Staff: Every single staff member we met was simply amazing. They went to any length to make your stay enjoyable and always had a funny joke or comment, or were just simply kind. Special thanks to Danys, Carlitos, Orlando, the head chef, and the two In training maids in the white shirts in the lobby. Phenomenal service. Thank you thank you thank you.
In short, the Pestana is brand new, they are getting their feet on the ground and I believe they are striving for excellence from what we saw. Relax and enjoy while these PEOPLE (never forget, these are people serving you) take care of you for an amazing week!
Special side note to the extremely rude, abnoxious Canadians that travel abroad: you are embarrassing our country and making us look terrible. Treat others as you would be treated, don't be rude, don't act as though you are better than anybody else (you arent) and the staff are not your servants. Please shape up, it's humiliating.
