I visited Costasur with my husband two teenagers (ages 13 -girl & 16 -male), and parents ages 68&72. This was my fourth trip to Cuba. I wanted something for everyone in my family. I definately got it. We have taken the kids before to Santa Lucia,Cuba(a four star) They prefered Costasur. My parents have never travelled any where tropical. They can't wait to go back!! My husband and I (45&43) had a great time also. I can't think of many vacation places that can please this wide an age group! The staff at this resort are tops!! From the Sunwing reps, Levys and Maryelvis, who are the most personable reps at any resort that I have stayed at! Levy was wonderful to my family. He was great to my mom who felt sick on the bus to the resort, to my daughter who contracted an eye infection on route to Cuba. He ordered sterilized water for cleaning and brought her antibiotic drops the next day(no charge!). Maryelvis made special trips to an orphanage and senior's residences to deliver items I brought for the Cubain people.
All the staff at costasur are great from the waiters in the restaurant(especially Palito who befriended my entire family) to the cleaning staff,bartenders,to the entertainment staff,the likes of which I have never met! They befriended my teenagers and made them feel like family. All staff went above and beyond what was required of themselves, to make our stay the best.Yeniel my kids speak of you often. Thank you! Also the dance crew you were great to my daughter. For the people who have written bad reviews about the staff all I can say to you is ....you reap what you sew. If you are nice to them (Not just talking about tipping ect) they are more than nice to you!!!
The resort itself is great ! The view of the Mountains from the beach is nothing short of breathtaking! We stayed in the Bungalows which are right on the beach very nice and roomy. They all have a small fridge, separate t.v. room,and bathroom. No door between t.v. room and bedroom. the bedroom had Two double beds. We also had a twin bed in the t.v. room, not all bungalows have this. The rooms are very clean and no bugs.
The food is cuban. If you want gormet go to Toronto! The food was always hot ,plentiful and well displayed. There was always fresh fruits and veggies both regular and cuban fare. There was an egg grill every morning some fresh meat grilled every lunch and dinner. There was always something for everyone.(remember the age range of my extended family)The bartenders were always promp and frendly, and YES THEY HAVE MOJITOS!!!!!(see Carlos at the beach bar for the "best" ones)
My family always felt safe at Costasur, I was nevered worried about my kids roaming alone on the resort.
The nightlife was good in town at "the cave" and town square . I never went but friends did go and said it was good. The resort is fairly quiet after the ''show" ends at 11:30. The shows are O.K. They are usually funny and entertaining. Nothing big just good fun.
The extra trips off the resort were good and well worth the $.
The beach is lovely. A small cove area for swimming and amateur snorkling, was enjoyed by my family espiecially my kids. The sand is white but not powdery. It was course with some rocks. Some wore water shoes most didn't. We never had a problem getting a beach chaise, a seat at the bar or poolside,or at the buffet. We didn't have a problem getting a reservation at the a la carte restaurant (which was O.K. but we prefered the buffet.)
Overall Costasur is definately a resort I would I'd return to, and recomend to anyone.
Until we meet again my friends.
