Two good restaurants a few steps away. Bring peanut butter! LOL. You have to let your water run for about 15 minutes before hot water...

I had 3 rooms before I checked out and moved to another resort. The bathroom had no showerhead. Food was nasty. Staff were rude. I paid an extra $400 to move from here,this resort is like a bad dream.

Stayed at this hotel from February 27th to March 5th 2016. Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment in building 20. Compete with 2 bathrooms and kitchen with a fridge. Great location on the strip. Typical Cuban food so don't expect much but passable. Pool area was clean and entertainment was great. Bars were great...beer was cold and service was good....
