I marvel at the way people rate hotels is Cuba, which is basically on some -conceived in the USA- formula. I stayed at Hotel San Juan for all of April in 2006, and will return this spring. The room was adequate, and well attended daily by a very nice room attendant/ maid. The included breakfast was again good, with variety and served by very warm gracious staff. Thing is, I do not go to this place for the ammenities. It is the experience. Within my month, I seemed to become one of a Cuban family. Morning hugs hello. Chats throughout the day. Watching the poolside action, where Cubans pay a small fee to enter each day. Disco at night was a hoot to observe or participate in. Once again, it was in large part Cuban. I met the managers, and both of the senior gentlemen, Fermin and Enrique, could not have been more abliging hosts. This is not a hotel that abounds with lavish ammenities. It is a hotel that pulses with the warm spirit and soul of the average Cuban heart. In short, the staff make the difference. Go from this place to a typical tourist beach resort nearby, and the magic is gone!
