So far I've been here twice and was happy with what I got on the whole. The food is recycled on occasion but there are several restaurants within walking distance. I had friends to walk with. Alone I wouldn't do it. Single supplement is super low. Water didn't always work but I didn't see any cockroaches. Because the place is cheap I was able to spend in Havana and travel to Trinidad.
As for the prositution...there are girls for the old geezers, young guys and men for the women. The women give gifts and money just as much as the men. Doesn't bother me about Cuba. The people are poor and are exposed to the western life style by tv so they want a piece of capitalism. The local discos are full of young girls plying their trade but I had a good time dancing with the tourist men anyway.
I liked the other bar for mojitos. Too bad it wasn't open on my first trip.
People are friendly at this hotel. I made some great friends from all over.
Smoke was a bit much for me but it's to be expected.
Management: Good staff. I would recommend a more intensive beach cleanup with signs for the polluters. What a shame people are such pigs.
Fellow tourists: Bring clothes, flip flops, chocolate, soap, toothpaste to give away. The staff and other Cubans really appreciate it.More
