We were a large group of 14 people, which consisted of 2 seniors (70-80), 6 adults (35-48), and 6 kids (5-15yrs). Was there from Aug 3-11 (8 days) Let me start by telling you that we have now been to particular resort 5 times. It started off a little rough when we got to our room and found the fridge... More

Words can not express how much I love this resort. The resort is a small, older resort but beats anything new because of the great staff, food and accommodations. I have visited the resort twice (September 2014 - 1 week, January 2016 - 3 weeks) and am going back in the fall of 2016. I can not say enough how... More

My husband and I stayed in room 823. The AC work very well the housekeeper was very wonderful and kept our room very clean and supplied us with... More

Moved to this hotel as the original one was a horrible disaster. Really nice hotel with great pool with a swim upto bar. Buffet restaurant was good but al a carte restaurants were better though these had to be booked in advance. Beach was outstanding and we were lucky enough to have our room close to it. Great entertainment at... More

Very nice resort, has been renovated and the rooms and the resort are very well kept, and the A/C actually worked so well that you could get cold at night if you do not adjust the temperature. This resort was quirky. No minibar fill up, they only gave you one bottle of water for the week and you were expected... More

Just got back from the Roc Arenas Doradas Resort today. We were there from August 3 to August 10. The beach was the best I've ever seen. I wouldn't rate a 5 star but certainly a 10 star. Pool area also was good but we stayed most of the day at the beach as this is the reason why we... More

We stayed here July 14th - 21st. We had 2 rooms in the 300 block (close to the pool, snack bar, buffet and hotel lobby). Not a long walk to the beach either. Fantastic maid service (lots of personalized touches - thank you Ireisy). Fresh bottled water daily and a VERY clean room. AC was perfect - the kids even... More

Cuba is archaic and rustic, so don't expect a Hilton. Overall, the rooms are clean and are groomed daily. The beach is beautiful and the pool area/facilities are typical of any all-inclusive resort. The staff are moderately friendly, with the exception of Jorge, who is awesome! Jorge speaks English very well, is hilarious and will provide you with advice/help if... More
