food was always the same. you have to find your own cutlery most of the time and your glass, no one comes around to ask if you want a drink, if you ask the staff for anything they give you attitude. The lounge bar attendants will ignore you. If you stay here and I hope you don't ruin your vacation...

I stayed at this hotel for 1 week. If it were not for the natural beauty of the country, it would have been the worst trip of my life. The only thing in the hotel that works very well is the hotel reception when you first arrive, after that, pray to God for a miracle to happen in your life....

We knew that based on the reviews shared that the hotel was likely to be dated, however we were not expecting it to be quite as bad as it was. We were traveling as a group of five and had booked a double room and a triple room. When we went to check in there was one person handling all...

This is an old and tired hotel. Price reflects this. Our room was clean, beds were comfortable. Room had a slight musty smell to it and air conditioner was fairly loud. We left the a/c on all day and turned it off when we went to bed. Water for bathing was warm at best. Elevator was slow, only one working....

This is my fourth Cuban hotel resort stay within 2 years. Two people traveled December 2016 for 3 nights. I chose this hotel due to the "short dates" I could afford to go away matching with this hotel stay, also some of reviews said food was adequate, which I agree. The main reason for us go to Cuba is mostly...

I understand that this is Cuba and it is not the same as Canada! But that is no excuse for what this hotel has in store for you. Listen to the reviews do not stay here. I traveled to this hotel Feb-2016 with 3 of my friends for 7 days. It was 7 days of hell. The room was run...
