we just came back from Cuba, the hotel is amazing. Super clean, great staff, always smiling.
the beach is amazing. It was a bit windy and cloudy the first couple of days so we sat by the pools. the water was cold, but once in it, it's really nice.
we took the catamaran trip with our ten month old son. it was a perfect day: snorkeling, taking pix with dolphins, then an amazing beach on an island where you can have lobster.
i took everything with me for the baby, food , diapers, medications so I did not need anything for him there. they actually don't have much stuff,but there is one supermarket ( americana plaza where you can find wet wipes and diapers but i don't think the quality is great).
the cleaning lady decorated our room every day. i left her a gift almost every day ( mainly items from the dollar store, creams, shampoos, . I noticed they appreciate it very much when someone gives them clothes.
