This was the best location i stayed during my time on Cuba. Compared to other hotels in the same price range this one had the best price to value ratio. The Stuff is polite and most of them speak good english, which is not obvious for cuba. Whenever i had an issue they found a way to help me, especialy Klaus the manager is very capable. Thank you! They have a nice and diversed buffet, even during Corona crisis. Additionally there are opportunitys to book "a la carte" resturants right inside the resort which are included - My personal recommendation is the mexican restaurant. My personal highlight was the entertainment program. There are activities on a daily basis, like minigames where you can win prices or a stage program with magic- and dance shows. Last but not least, i have been to cuba during covid and my intention was to travel around. At this time it was very hard to find some good places to enjoy, but this was definitely one of them.

My wife and I have been to the Roc Barlovento several times now and have always had a nice time. The hotel is smallish by comparison to the large get lost in places on the beach. This place is more intimate with regulars. We missed last year because of the pandemic,,but are looking forward to going again this year as things are opening up. The hotel is older but well looked after and the staff are super friendly. In particular Maypu,Hilda,Yusset and Ernesto always have a smile and a friendly gesture for you. Food is average but lots of,,and the beach is fantastic. So,,looking forward to coming again this Feb.

I have been to Cuba over 20 times and have stayed at various places. By far this is my favourite place. The service is friendly and Efficient and the rooms are clean. Each day is an enjoyment. In particular- a shout out to Maypu, Ernesto, Yusset and Hilda the front end bar. They are friendly and engaging and make the day/evening and night a fun experience. I’m going there again in February’21

Love this place. Its is run down and tired, but literally has the best beach, location to shopping and close to the airport. The staff is fantastic. The food is ok and the pools are nice. Third time here😉 The only bad thing is somebody stole or beach towel. We didnt like having to pay $20u.s for a crappy towel

My wife and I have @ the Roc B 7 times over the past 2 years, Some things not great (hot water at times), food i give 7/10 for the most part. Klaus has done a great job, even now they are upgrading during this moment. Rooms have always been great, clean. The staff has always been amazing, friendly, fix things when they need. I will continue to go here ... wish i could retire there ;)
