i just returned after a 7 day vacation. i stayed at the `southern rooms`. these are a bit further away from the ocean but what a difference. they are new, clean, and if you can find one that overlooks the pool, amazing.
other rooms in the main building are quite dated. the smell of mould is annoying in these rooms and you'll see a lot of bugs. our friends stayed there and the difference was amazing. we originally booked an ocean view room then changed our minds. ocean view is not worth it. good rooms are..
the beach is amazing. the staff does not expect tips but appreciate the tips a lot. some of the staff was just there to work. and some were very pleasant. especially the ladies at the bar in the lobby. they make the best drinks. they were all very helpful.
beer is always cold and delicious. canadians and american with 3litre jugs get annoying but oh well. pina coladas are usually good or excellent depending on who makes them. you ll figure out in the first 2 days and stick to the same bartender :)) mojitos were not good as they sometimes use some kind of fake juice for them
food was very bad. you'll live if you like cheese, tomatos, cucumbers, rice, and croissants. just dont expect anything special. they made chicken breast once and that was good too, im guessing it was organic. either way, if you dont expect steaks and burgers and other warm, delicious food, you'll live and enjoy the experience. even pasta wasnt that good.
shows at night were entertaining but not really `cuban`. typical resort contests.
they had very good music for lunch and dinner but the band usually plays a few songs then goes near the tables to take requests and expect tips. that wasnt fun. would have been better if they kept on playing, on the stage.
overall, keeping in mind the cuban standards, i think this hotel was good.
***find a deal, and get one of the newer rooms.
**most of the receptionists are aware of the non standard rooms and will let you change rooms if you are not happy with yours.
***very important: food was not good, but it's only a matter of selection and taste. noone got sick.
