It said it was a lovely hotel, with a superb beach and good food - and it was. Never done all-inclusive before and expected a 'mixed' experience, but everything came up to a very good standard. Room was excellent, food was very well produced and presented (especially

To start with the positives - the staff are very good, very welcoming, attentive and always with a smile on their face. The beach is fabulous ! and is a very short walk out of the hotel gardens. The bar on the beach is very useful, though limited in what it provides, but a short

Yes you have to pay for wifi. Best reception for that would be main building in reception area. Buses run from nearby hotel it's a 5 min walk down to main road. Buses every 30 mins. You have open air hop on and hop off for 5 cucs. Or another bus that charges 3 cucs into Varedaro and 2 cucs to return leaving on the hour . We gave tips in cucs. You will be given the opportunity to go on several trips which the rep will advise you at their meetings. Havana is a must, we did the overnight stay. The catamaran trip with interaction with dolphins was amazing. You Can pay for these by card, or sterling. Reception will exchange currency, but remember your notes have to be perfect they will not accept any with writing , tears, are marker pens. There's always taxis waiting outside hotel. Both classic cars and taxis which costs around 8-10 cucs. Hope this information helps. Enjoy.

Our room clearly had been used by smokers as the dressing table you had several burn marks on it. But in all honestly I never smelt anything in room on arrival. They are allowed to smoke around pool in fact I saw someone smoke whilst sitting in jacuzzi ? But there are areas in the garden section which is very secluded where you won't be hassled with smokers, hope that helps.

"The higher you go, the less the water pressure, but the better the view."
"Book at Least select seaview room on 8th floor or above for good view"
"Seaview and high floor"
"Get an ocean view room 6th floor or higher for the view and less smoke."
"Rooms at the front of the hotel are a bit quieter, go to higher floors for less noise."
