Me and my family of 10 stayed here for 15 nights from the 29th October, (ages from 22 up to 65), we originally booked to stay in another hotel but due to the damage from hurricane sandy we were told 3 days before flying out that we were staying at playa pesquero instead- to begin with we were gutted however our opinions very much changed.
I must say we had the best flight with thomsons premium and I will now never fly with anyone else it was fantastic.
When we first arrived at pesquero there was broken trees/plastic/rubbish all over the walk ways around the hotel to get to your rooms (this was due to the hurricane and the poor hotel looked like a bomb site), we had been put in rooms so far away from the main complex and from each other, the rooms were awful there was damp walls, bugs everywhere and a ants nest in the bathroom we also had a friendly cockroach there to greet us.
After a terrible night sleep (in my clothes- there was no way I was sleeping in that bed without being covered) we were all moved to a different block where all our rooms were together, we were closer to the main complex and not a cockroach in site. The receptionist and Thomson rep could not be faulted.
From then on our holiday got better, we had a few issues including the Italian restaurant where the staff were so rude (I have been to Cuba 3 times and never met a rude Cuban until now), a few members of the bar staff were miserable and liked to grunt at you a lot, some of the restaurant staff were equally as grumpy and when asking for anything it was a massive effort, the dancers of an evening had the talent but clearly did not want to be there and couldnt be bothered to keep in time with anyone else on stage- it was hard and smbarrasing to watch and one last thing the french canadians are probably the rudest people i have ever met unfortunately nothing can be done about them however they tend to mainly go to cuba in november so I will be returning at a different time of year next time! but that's about it as far as "bad" goes for this hotel... Now for the reasons why you should go...
The beach is beautiful especially right down to the end of the right side,
The food is incredible- absolutely anyone can eat here, our favourite was the beer garden tapas menu especially the calamari and the romantica restaurant is amazing!
The ice cream parlour is the best thing ever but awful for the waist line haha the lady in there is always smiling and so friendly make sure you try the mango ice cream- wow!!!
The mojito bar is a must- best mojitos I have ever had and the service is great!
The "egg lady" in the buffet made mine and my boyfriends mornings! She remembers you and can't do enough to help (I wish I could remember her name).
You can always get a sunbed whether its round the pool or the beach.
The sun cruise excursion with the dolphin swim is the best trip ever I have swam with dolphins 3 times and this is the best! Fabulous day!
The entertainment team do everything they can and are brilliant but it is a shame not one of the dancers look like they want to be there when doing the shows- luckily the entertainment team make up for it (lea, Ellie, Dickson, marsial)
The Cuban people should be so proud of themselves on how they managed with the hurricane, within 4 days of being there the hotel was completely cleaned up including a brand new roof on one of the buildings! They work so hard!
I would definitely recommend this hotel, if you want to relax and have fun and eat and drink well then book it! Thank you playa pesquero! X
