I just came from an amazing time at the Playa Vista Azul resort. I traveled with my parents and my friend. Like many, before leaving from here, I was worried about how things would go but honestly it went so smoothly and we didn't feel worried at all once there! So far, no PCR tests are required before traveling to Cuba, so we didn't do any test before leaving from Montreal (I said "so far" because you should stay updated with the rules in case they do change). Once you get to Cuba, you will do a covid test at the resort (it is much less invasive than the one in Canada!) and get the result right away. Then you get to enjoy your stay at the resort! Masks are recommended in restaurants and ok to be removed once you sit down (same thing as in Canada). All the staff wear their masks and are very clean, everywhere in the resort. Cuban people are always so genuine and kind! A special thank you to the Lobby Bar Team: Yosnir, Mirunga, Anay, Amaury, Yoarky, Cavlito, Onay. This was not my first time to Cuba, and it was my second time at this resort and I am looking forward to going back again already!! MANY thanks to all the staff at Playa Vista Azul; we had a lovely time and we send you our love! Stay safe and well! We will see you again soon!! xoxo

I have no complains this place was absolutely beautiful and you definitely feel like your in paradise all the staff that work there (Libia, Felix, choco, amaury, yoalkis, Brad pit, chiki, Alex) and if I have forgotten anyone I am sorry but you all are the best. You all made our vacation amazing and we came back with beautiful memories: The rooms where so clean and perfect for us. My sister my brother and my husband like everyone’s company and we will definitely come back to visit. The food was great but if you like spicy food take ur own hot sauce if you like too but delicious food and amazing services. I can’t thank the staff enough. Wifi is free first it’s for 7hrs and then 3hrs you just have to tell them to recharge again for you, works in lobby the rooms at the snack bar and pool side. I had got into a scooter accident while in Cuba and all the staff members that I listed above took really good care of me and the nurses. I felt like family to all of them there and treated me like a VIP ( I hope you guys remember me now ) This was my first time in Cuba and I was really pleased and happy with their services. I appreciate all of the staff members at this resort for all your help making sure we had a good time. Whenever they asked me what I wanted to drink I would say (MAKE ME SOMETHING SPECIAL) that’s how they will remember me hahaha. The infinity pool was breath taking with the view beaches were amazing to the right and crystal clear: They made sure everyone was having fun and kept the entertainment going on and keep checking up on u for anything you need: Thank you guys once again for a lovely vacation and making sure we all where having fun and a great time. YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST ❤️ Looking forward to meeting you all soon 🙂 Thank You Aditi/Rohan

I still can't believe it!!! It was amazing, the accommodation, the staff, the vibes, just perfect! The cleanest hotel I've ever been, the food everything you want, the drinks very good quality, every single liquor you can imagine, and the delicious coffee, table service as well and the bartenders... i want bring them at home! so friendly, excellent service, ALWAYS with a smile, just they makes you feel at home, actually better! They makes you feel like a queen (or king :D). The hotel has very nice pools and the in the way to the beach there are stunning views, you can enjoy beautiful sunsets, all the services you want at 2 steps, 2 bars besides the beach... all night service at Ranchon, a place you can enjoy snacks and all the drinks you want. All nights they have a show alive, even the aquatic one :O The ambience is very good, safety, there are no drunk people messing around, you can dance (in covid time not so closely, but still they do a lot of activities keeping the social distance). I went alone and to the way i made friends and as i said the people who works there are really respectful and super friendly, in a scale from 1 to 10 they have 20. My room was deluxe, i has a balcony, the furniture was like they just buy it, a hugh bed (always cristal clean), big tv ( i didn't use because there was so many things to do), the bathroom impecable with a shower cab for i don't know how many people XD, elegant that's i can say. I didn't excepted that from an hotel in Cuba but i felt in the most amazing resort ever. Thanks so much to all the people who works there, they have a place in my heart! Muchas gracias mis amigos!!!!
