Miguel Angel Perez Barcelo was our server for breakfast and lunch many days. He provided excellent service every morning and lunch. He remembered what we liked and was so very efficient at wasting no time in bringing omelettes coffee water and whatever we needed. He had a table set in the area we liked and was very attentive. Always a smile, and so happy when saying Good morning. What a great start to our day. We appreciate great service and want everyone to know how he went above and beyond for us. Thank you for making us want to come back from 🇨🇦 Canada! Ola and Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!xoxo

My mom and I stayed here for the week and had the best time. The weather turned out great, the food was good, and the people were amazing. Special shout-out to the entertainment team Dainerys, Ernesto, Osmel, and Adier for making our week so fun and for being such a welcoming group of people. Also the bartenders and kitchen staff were the best! Always so happy to serve us and would joke around with us (Yadiani, Henny, and Yoile). The beach was very nice and the water was clear. The workers on the beach would come up to us and ask us what we would like to eat and drink and bring it to us. The rooms were clean and the view from ours was amazing (ocean view). Everything on the resort is walking distance which we loved. There were subtle changes after reopening because of Covid but it was still a great time. I would recommend this resort to anyone!

We spent two very special weeks that we spent in Cuba at the Dhawa hotel, highly recommended, we are already planning the next trip with the new opening of tourism. Between the good attention and service, and the facilities; time flies when you are having fun.

I had my best vacation at this resort earlier this month. It was my 9th or 10th time in Cuba. I came on my own and stayed for a week. Sleek modern rooms. Beautiful well-kept grounds. One central pool but it’s gorgeous and very big. There are two resident wild flamingos that frequent the pond by the lagoon and it was surreal seeing them during my sunrise walks. Staff are the kindest I’ve met, which is saying a lot since Cuban resort staff are always kind. I appreciated the front desk staff the most- super cool folks and very helpful. I also greatly appreciated how the resort arranged for COVID PCR testing to take place for travellers 3 days before departure, which took the stress of that off my shoulders. One thing that needs to be worked on however is the food, it’s not representative of a resort of this rating. While food is not terribly important to me, usually I can’t get enough of the food at Cuban resorts and I didn’t at Dhawa. But this can be easily worked on, so I urge the resort to invest in this! Best cappuccinos I’ve ever had however. Overall lovely stay.
