We returned Saturday. Had a fantastic time, not much to grumble about and we are v fussy. Everything everyone else says tells the story so wont go on anymore about how lovely it is. We did pay extra for the superior suites and they were fab. Ours looked over a lovely garden and had an outside shower which we used all time so would definitely recommend them.
- everything everyone else says, its really fab and has the best gardens we have seen anywhere and we have travelled loads
- would agree about reserving sun beds by pool bit of a pain getting up early but if needs must. Also disco music drove you mad after a while!
Beach - we found a bit too windy for us and also had a funny smell at times.
Bathrooms - agree they could do with a bit of tlc
No one mentioned to us before and haven't noted in the reviews that there is a definite loo roll shortage in Cuba! Not at the hotel, but if you venture outside and need the loo be prepared to be handed one sheet on entry or have none at all (ie the airport, bars & restaurants etc.). I took one with me once I left PRDO everywhere I went, especially in Havana.
We are going to return next year and hope they don't change a thing before we get there!
