We stayed at Las Morlas from Dec 26-Jan 3. It is a smaller family resort. We had been promised adjoining rooms but instead got rooms across the hall from each other. Nothing could be done. After that initial frustration we had a very enjoyable stay. One room faced the pool-disco which was very loud at night until about 1 am. The other room had an ocean-street view which was very calm-great to sit on the balcony and listen to the ocean..
You got a free litre of water in the fridge the first day-after that you had to pay a peso at the bar for more.
We walked by the Barceló resort on our walks and we were so glad we didn't stay there. It looked like a spring break party-the beach was always littered and wild with partiers. Even our teenagers were happy we were at Las Morlas.
The rooms were simple and clean. While the bedspreads could do with replacing, the rooms were kept very clean. The towels were thick. Extra-large bath sheets were available for the beach/ pool. Odalys, our house keeping lady, created towel sculptures every day including swans with fresh flowers on New Year’s Day.
The New Year's Eve celebration was so much fun, complete with noise makers, hats, and masks and champagne. We celebrated twice-Italian New Year as there are many Italians at this resort and Cuban. The New Year's Eve dinner was fabulous. Beautifully presented, huge variety and great service.
I would agree with other comments that the a la carte restaurant is not worth going to. While it is a lovely atmosphere with great individual service, none of us enjoyed our meal there. Stay at the buffet- it changes daily. Cuban ,Italian, fish...We never noticed the shortages other people have spoken of in other resorts.
The buffet had a really good variety of food. Our family has many allergies to contend with. We were worried about it beforearriving, but the variety and presentation made it easy for us to avoid what we needed to. The daily omelette bar and pasta bar were great. We too enjoyed the lunches at the beach bar.
The beach was beautiful-the shades of blue clear water, the clean soft sand...It was kept really clean with enough lounge chairs for everyone. We had long walks every day. There were paddle boats, catamarans included. The Eden Village people included everyone in their activities and even though we don't speak Italian we had a lot of fun trying the variety of activities. We avoided the pool (except for the bar :)) as it was really cold. I did love the Christmas tree by the pool..
We went on two excursions-one to Havana for the day and one snorkelling day. We booked them in the lobby with our Hola tour guide. Both days were fantastic. Our teenagers were really pleased to try new things or just hang out. Don't miss Havana-there is so much to see. Our meal there was our worst of the week though' at El Gato. I think also next time I would bring my own snorkel gear.
Next to the resort there is a little bank. Be sure to walk over there to change your money as the hotel charges a lot. Better yet change your money at the airport before you get on the bus to the resort!!
Lots of fun-would love to go back-thank you to the staff especially the bar and buffet staffs :)
