This is definitely a 3 star hotel, meaning that it is not luxurious by any means. However, the staff are really really welcoming and friendly and try very hard to please. They gave us presents when we left!!! If you go, stay in the bungalows, they are right by the ocean and are really worth the extra money. The hotel has both 110 and 220 voltage plugs so you can plug Canadian appliances like blow dryers in no problem. The walkways are all cobble stone and are very tough to walk on. This could cause problems for older travelers since the walkways are uneven and often broken or chipped, easy to twist an ankle. The buffet is OK, nothing special but it is good and filling. I got the grill guy to stir fry me some veggies from the buffet and that helped. There is no disco and the everning entretainment is really amateurish. there is a band playing on Wed nights only and they are worth seeing. This is a very quiet older crowd that goes to this hotel and there is very little going on day or night. This is perfect for you if you dont want to be bothered and just want to have a peaceful time by the beach. We went with 2 teenage daughters and we ended up going into Trinidad every night for the night life. The cabs cost 8 dollars per trip and it takes 10 min to get to Trinidad. Once you are in town there is tons to do. There is usually 4-6 clubs open with live bands every night starting at 9 or 10 pm. The best one is on the steps by the catherdral. The band is awesome, it is free, open air, and the cuban men wil dance with any woman they see sitting down. It is great if you love to salsa and cha cha. At 11 pm, the disco starts at the Casa de musica and they play reggaton and other stuff. The place gets packed with cubans and tourists. Avoid the clubs on Friday and Sat nights since it is so crowded you cant move- I mean it, you cant move or dance. A great place to go clubbing is the Cave disco. Totally awesome cave underground with stalagmites and stalagtites. Dont go to the Sunday matinee at 4-9 pm since it is totally crowded,
A big tip for the women is not to wear high heeled shoes to Trinidad. The streets are all cobble stone and you will twist your ankle for sure. If possible wear runners and walk on the narrow sidewalks, they are smooth. My 18 year old daughter twisted her knee due to the cobbles. The museums are great especially the romantic museum, go for sure.
We did the Cayo Blanco catamaran excursion which was not that great for snorkelling but was a great day spent out sailing. the iguanas on the island are great. The reef was dead with few fish. However, by the island 300 m offshore is a sunken ship that has great snorkelling. Swim out to it if you can. the pilings 100 m off shore also have good fish and corals. We also did the horse back and hike to El Cubano park. this was really great, well organized, good horses, great meal, great hike and the swim in the waterfall pools was awesome. Swim under the waterfall and you end up in a huge cave full of bats and stalagmites. Really worth it. Have fun!
