We spent our days enjoying the free activities that the hotel provided like snorkelling, kayaking, catamaran and a pedlo. I'd definitely recommend doing the day trip where you go out and visit a local farmer, it was a...

Go to Santiago, a city steep in history from pirates and forts to the start of the Castro revolution and Fidel's final resting place....

The maids were very polite and everyday the room was left spotless with a little towel animal on the covers....
