The staff is unfriendly and not helpful at all. " we don't provide taxi service. We don't provide information on buses, No, you... More

My girlfriend and I were the only tourists then and this was everywhere we went. It was quite primitive then. We didn't expect anything. But the snorkeling was beautiful. We loved Cuba we sure got lost a lot since all road signs were gone, made for some fun experiences. Food was not easy to come by then. No stores. We... More

Spent two nights here in late February - friendly staff did as much as they could to serve us well (friendly reception, helpful maid, great cafe latte, snack bar etc) but overall this place is shockingly depressing and Cubanacan etc just need to get serious about it. Others have commented about the stray dogs, horses ambling around, run down, broken... More

I hope everyone would take a couple minutes to read this review and get a different perspective on a place that can be often misunderstood and dismissed by some ignorant people. As most, if not all of the people reviewing this place have mentioned, this is an old army camp. After the invasion of The Bay of Pigs, it was... More

This old army camp has sewers with partly open lids that smelt appalling scattered around the concrete cubes called rooms. ours also had an unemptied rubbish bin outside our door for the 4 days we were there. Bathrooms without a single peg or shelf, so only floor to drop towels down, with mouse droppings left during our four nights there.... More

This place is depressing. The accommodation consists of dozens and dozens of "bungalows" scattered over a huge area hundreds of metres from the reception building and bar. The whole complex was an army camp during the infamous Bay of Pigs invasion of 1961. So it is almost 60 years old, and looks it too!! Many of the bungalows are derelict... More

This place is ugly. The rooms are more like little houses, that are in need of alot of work. It looks like a deserted nuclear town. The main part of the resort is more than a little tired. The pool has very strange filters in it, but they don't seem to work as there was a layer of pond scum... More

Playa Giron was amazing. There is no pressure or stress at this place. I stayed there in the begging of Jan 2016 and it is well worth the price. Antonio who works there goes beyond to help as much as he can, genuine with a good heart. I meet a nice couple from Canada, Colleen and Dwayne whom I hope... More
