Had a large chalet with 2 bedrooms. It was very dirty, with metal (rusting) interior doors and a front door which didn't lock properly Had to put a chair against it. Air con. worked but was just a unit fitted into a hole in the wall with big gaps to the outside world left unfilled. Plenty of hot water but...

The cabins are quite large but not very clean. One bed was broken when we arrived and there was dirty paper and an empty condom packet below the bed. It was the worst matresses we have ever tried. The restaurant also seemed dirty but the breakfast buffet was ok. The staff was very kind and helpfull.

Would not recommend this Hotel to anyone. The rooms were dirty, tired and require an major overhaul. We could not wait to get out of there. The lunch and dinner menus exactly the same. the only thing going for it was the 2 Ladies at reception they were lovely and helpful. The woman behind the bar making the drinks very...

The Soviet architecture is a throwback to be treasured by those who are NOT attracted to the Veradero-Cancun cookie cutter scene. My group of four had an inimitable cottage with two bedrooms, living room, kitchen, two bathrooms. The buffet meals didn't vary much, but then what DID in the Soviet era (which isn't that long past). The all-inclusivo price we...

One of the worst places I experienced in Cuba. Bad food, expensive rates. The 2 * are far too much. in the bungalow only the bed room is air con but with an ancient device hardly cooling. The staff is unfriendly and not helpful at all. " we don't provide taxi service. We don't provide information on buses, No, you...

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...

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...

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...

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....
