First off, if you are expecting 5 star accommodation then this is not for you. Everything is a bit dated and just a little bit wonkey! However, it's very clean, the food is very good and the staff are amazing. The pools are very clean and well maintained and the beach is amazing. Make sure you go on the HobiCats... More

Stayed with family 2 - 17th August 2016. One of our best holidays (event pre-children)! The idea of seeing the true Cuba (before Americans modernise it) is what drew us to this destination. Cuba is laid back, behind the times......developing......don't loose sight of this. Our room 2003 was large spacious and that's with 2 adults and an 11 year old.... More

Had such a great week here! The beach is beautiful and there are always chairs available to lounge for the day. The hotel itself isn't anything fancy but it's not awful. Comfortable and clean room with a nice view. We stayed close to the main lobby and restaurant but there's also a more quiet side. The food can be quite... More

We visited the Hotel in August for a romantic couple break. The weather was brilliant the whole time, no rain and was very very very very hot! The hotel is split into two sites, Luna and Mares. Most of the entertainment and the food buffets are on the Mares side, with the Luna side being quieter. It doesn't really matter... More
