We had a great trip to Club Amigo. We booked a month in advance and did get a decent deal on the trip. We booked thru Nolitours which offered the bungelo section ( highly recommended) and the cameleon package. As a cameleon member you receive special little extra's, which we did not receive. I was very unhappy with Nolitours as they told us that we would receive a special night, a bottle of rum in our room and other bonuses. When we arrived out rep told us that it was not offered in April and was only available in high season. I am very disappointed with Nolitour and will never book with them again. I am still not able to get in contact with anyone to let them know I was sold on something that was not offered when I arrived.
Club Amigo is a great place. The people there are very nice and there is a local market for all your gift right beside the hotel. Most workers make anywhere from 6 peso's ( i.e. the students ) to 16 peso's ( i.e. the housekeepers and bartenders ). I would recommend tipping the gardener's as well as anyone who cleans your room as they can be a great help when you really need it.
DO NOT ARRIVE IN THE NIGHT!!!! EVER!!!! We arrived at 10:50pm Cuban Time and we had the worst time trying to find a room that we could sleep in. The first room the toilet consistently ran, second room had no lock on the patio door, third room had no air conditioner, took us 7 rooms till we found one to sleep in. NEVER ARRIVE IN THE NIGHT!!!! in the morning we talked to someone who could speak Spanish and English who helped us out a lot.
This hotel is great. There was a few time we wanted to just scream we were so frustrated but all in all we had a good time. Weather is warm, amazing beach ( and I mean AMAZING ), and there is a ton of things to do at the hotel.
Booked in the Standard then upgrade when you get there. Cheaper to do it this way and you will have more to choose from.
