I have been a guest to this property 3 times. The large ' family suite' has a washer/ dryer combo along with D/W etc. The studio suites , you must pack some kitchen essentials - (someone on tripadvisor made a list of what is needed.) We ate at the steakhouse nearby one evening., it was great ,went bowling at the entertainment complex and had espresso, ice cream etc. ( Marina Gaviotte open mall) Some of the reviewers, as evidenced by their comments, seem to be confused re: the state of affairs which the country of Cuba has had to endure / its history. In Cuba, one may observe first-hand, the effects ' crippling sanctions' has had upon a society. . However, if one wishes to step outside the ' comfort zone' / do a little research -( in order to prepare to pack certain essentials) - this is surely the place to go. :RE: ' the staff is rude' - Perhaps one should reflect ' who are the lifelong residents/ who are the guests? There are cultural norms unique to every place - If you don't wish to respect what these may be : This is not the place for you. Do you wish a nice property considering the sanctions imposed upon Cuba? Then yes - this is the place for you. PS: to the writers of negative comments.. Please, consider : " actually" travelling ( sorry, "Mexican all-inclusives" do not count ) Expanding your extremely limited world-view would be appreciated by the readers. Thank you. Giving MLB caps etc is a very treasured gift to give to Cubans, but anything at all helps!

This place in a nutshell; - very far from the town and far from the main building - pool looked brutal - sketchy front desk - room not clean and stunk - bed was rock hard along with pillows - ceiling fan was secured with on screw - A/C not working - no dial tone on room phone - can hear your neighbor partying at 4:30am - puke in the hallway - had dirty, bloody bed sheets DO NOT STAY HERE

hotel is clean, lobby is amazing with bar and comfy chairs, our room is big and clean with kitchenette.., microwave is rusty and dirty though, safety locker not working, pillows are so flat.. Pool is not busy which is great we have the pool to ourselves.. Wifi doesnt work in the room Bathroom- no shower curtain, after we shower water is all over the floor.. Staff not so friendly anymore.. My 2nd time in this hotel the first time was in 2016, and i gave this hotel a good review... This time im disappointed .. our first night was horrible due to mosquitoes inside our room, we were eaten alive during the night, i cant believe a 4 star hotel has mosquitoes inside...good thing we’re only staying 2 nights.. We asked also for bottle of water in the room and we have to ask 3 times in the reception, she said she will advise the housekeeping, we waited and no water, we asked again and said need to ask the main reception and we did and we came back again no water and i called again and still No water... next morning i went to reception desk ask for water and she said take this one.. but i said its ok we’re checking out today.. Golf cart- we waited for almost 15 mins..no cart came.. we walk all the way to the main building and we never saw the cart passing by..we made it to the main building.. Marina Apartment-i booked All inclusive, but when we were in pool they charge us for the drink., and nobody told us about this on check in.. we booked apartment all inclusive but they said only in main building.. So be careful when u book the marina apartment even though you book all inc its not really all inc..

All Inclusive Hotel was Very nice and quiet place .... the views are stunning from the room. Maybe they could do better in night entertainment. But theres bowling and a club I believe next to the hotel.

For a new hotel it was falling apart. The staff were completely inappropriate. The only food the snack bar had were ham and cheese sandwiches..even though they had a menu.. Entertainment was meniscal.
