Let me first stay; I am done with Cuba. And that is only because I have been here so many times now that I am just bored of the Island. It is cheaper then most Islands in the Caribbean, but the luxury is not there. Luxury meaning the fancy stuff and more of the "bells and whistle's".
So, to the hotel. Very nice for Cuba. I would recommend it to someone that is an experienced Cuba traveller. The pool and beach were fantastic. Nice location for the beach bar and bbq snackie area; footsteps from the beach. The grounds were well kept and the chess/checker board was kinda cool. There is a few hot tubs available. large and a medium sized
Food was fine, no complaints and I heard of NO one getting sick. The wine was OK for "house" wine LOL
Room was very nice, maids were a attentive and nothing went missing.
***** If you did not upgrade on-line, do it at check-in; its worth the $100 approx.
Lobster night was awesome !!!!!!!!!!!! Annex restaurants were very good. Italian one was a little disappointing. Ran out of Salmon and live music was just packing up when we were arriving.
**** make sure your reservations for the annex restaurants are not past 8:00 pm ie. running out of food choices, no live music, etc.
Thanks for the pleasent stay.
If I was to go back to Cuba, I would come here. Enjoy :)
Oh ya, the shark-like creature swimming around the pond is pretty cool ................
