I stayed at this resort in April a couple years ago. It was amazing. The staff was nice on arrival and very helpful. Food was blah, but everyone knows that you are not going for the food at a Cuban resort. There was roughly 40 of us for my sisters wedding. Only one issue, we rented a catamaran for just our group. We had local friends there and asked if they could come. However, Cubans are not allowed on boats for personal use, they are only allowed on them if they work on one. So we asked the resort if our friends could enjoy the pool at the resort while we were on the catamaran. They agreed but we had to pay a small fee. We paid and the minute we left the resort they kicked our friends out. We were livid, they did reimburse the money but that does not excuse the treatment our local friends endured. Other than that incident the resort and staff were excellent. Staff very helpful and always smiling. I would gladly go back and I will.
