I am currently at this resort. If I could have a warm shower I might be happy. I have asked for my safe to be fixed twice. Buffet food is ok. Many salad type things but made with pasta. Not a lettuce in sight. The beach is nice but there are quite a few rocks. Rooms are clean but very dated. Bring butter, peanut butter, sugar, snacks, condiments. The cheese is one note. No cold cuts. I really don’t like the grilled meat. Tonight we are going to an outside restaurant by horse and buggy. We’ll see how that goes. If you are tolerant and realize what a poor country this is, you’ll be fine.

We had a lovely vacation. staff is friendly. For having been to cuba before i must say that the food was great. Zonia who works at the buffet was very dedicated. She even ran after my brother to give him is sweater that he had forgotten on his chair. We were very happy about that. we went on a catamaran with jose and we had a wonderful time. the rooms were clean. we had enough utilities and fresh water to drink. we are definitely going back next year.

This was our second time at Playa Costa Verde and there will be a third time. We were there for 3 weeks. The food is very good. Even with the shortages there was never a lack of a large selection of food to choose from. The pasta bar was fantastic and so was the soup especially the pumpkin soup. The a la carte restaurants were very good as well. Thank you Sr. Alta, the Food and Beverage Manage, for making sure all was done very well. The presentation of the food was excellent. The room was large and very clean. The bed was comfortable. The grounds were beautiful and well taken care of daily. All the staff was very friendly. Many remembered us from the previous year and greeted us with a hug. They could not have been more helpful. I would definitely recommend this resort.

First timers so booked because of the positive reviews . Not the least bit dissatisfied. The resort is lovely. Beautiful lobby,grounds and pool . Rooms very spacious and clean. cleanliness was very important to me . Our room was 4229 and was quite far from pool and lobby.We took advantage of the walk to get some exercise but would prefer something a little closer to everything next time. Despite shortages in Cuba we were never hungry . I would suggest bringing butter and peanut butter for your toast .I couldn’t find any while we were there . Fresh bread was lovely . Snack bar was great ! The staff was absolutely wonderful . Will definitely go back for 2 weeks the next time .

Wish we could have stayed longer! It’s our home away from home. The weather couldn’t have been any better. Lots of Rum and Sun! This was my 6th trip to Cuba in less than 3 years and PLAYA COSTA VERDE has been my ONLY place we have ever stayed. I’m hooked. It’s the staff there that keeps me coming time after time. HECTOR on the entertainment team hands down for us is why we come back. He goes above and beyond every time to ensure we have a great stay! You will find him at the beach in the mornings playing volleyball with the guests and if you like to play pool or ping pong you can find him in the games area in the afternoon before crazy games at the pool. One of the nicest guys you will ever meet. If you haven’t yet booked a resort you have to try here!! Can’t wait to come back! Bree

It's a sad day, we are leaving this beautiful resort. Had a great week, yes there were shortages but there was always something to eat. Lots of water and drinks. Very clean resort, and staff are amazing. Will definitely be coming back. You just have to keep in mind that everyone is suffering worldwide and Cubans are definitely suffering as well. Keep an open mind when coming. For the staff reading this thank you so much for a great week.
