Our experience at Cayo Levisa was very different to the review I read on this site! The ferry left a little late with a mass of Dutch day trippers which was no problem. We were met with a welcome drink but had to wait until 4p.m for or room. We did not have one of the newer rooms but were 'sea front'. The room had supposedly been cleaned but the little terrace was filthy, the door to our room was almost impossible to open and close and the bathroom filled with cockroaches as soon as the light was turned off. The resort regularly ran out of water to have showers, wash hands etc. We thought we had an all inclusive deal but found we had to pay for our lunch on the first day despite the fact we were leaving after breakfast on our last day. We had to pay for every drink, including water, which also surprised us as we had believed it was 'all inclusive'. The food was virtually the same at lunch and dinner everyday and the buffet was pretty unappetising. Having said that the chef freshly cooked fish and chicken at every meal which was great and meant there was always something OK to eat all be it a bit boring. We felt we had to hand out money constantly settling up every drink bill daily, paying to 'rent' beach towels etc. The beds were comfortable and the aircon worked well which made a change from other accommodation in Cuba! The beach was nice, white soft sand but the sea was a bed of seaweed a few meters off shore, so no snorkelling as nothing to be seen which was disappointing. We found the manager to be extremely unfriendly and unhelpful ~ perhaps he was just fed up with complaints from customers over no water etc. Certainly wouldn't go back & would need to try out a different coast line to be convinced Cuba was a good destination for a beach holiday!
