The beach immediately in front of the hotel is not the greatest, but the beach gets much better the closer you get to the Melia las Antillas, so not a great hardship to find a spot on a beautiful beach. Another negative would be the constant noise from the generator, which is annoying if you want to sit on your...

We especially enjoyed the Samurai Japanese restaurant, entertaining and tasty,. It,s not terribly...

We have just returned from a week long vacation with our 7 month old and almost 3 year old. We were so impressed with this resort! The building shows some age in spots, but it's still comfortable, clean and well maintained. What really made the trip for us, though, was the staff. Gustavo, Lizbet and Osmany in the dinning room...

First visit to Cuba and we were only able to stay for 1 night. The room was very nice with a large balcony and certainly similar to European standards. The furniture was old but in good condition and the mattress was nice and firm. With the short stay, we did the buffet for dinner and breakfast. Great number of choices...
