I agree with all what was written below me
except for the NO mosquitos. We are bit all over so bug repellant might help.
Pool was great...lit at night and we were allowed to use it as long as we were quiet.
Toilets are way too far from the beach. We also found it easier to go back to the room, seeing that the toilets that were the closest were at the a-la-carte restaurant and had no soap.
The lack of soap is what bothered me the most.
Lobby bar service and piano playing at night was awesome.
Sure you wait for your drinks but these guys notice are working NON-stop, always rushing (we had bad weather : 6 days out of 7 so the lobby was always full)....don't forget they have 16 hour shifts every other day, and often travel hours by bus to get to the resort. Regardless, they were always friendly and warm.
Julio and Pedro, Pino and Oslin = great guys!
Hard working men :)
the food was ok. I'm not one to complain because we could always find something to eat but this was my least favorite resort for food. No pizza so hamburgers and hotdogs every day at lunch time became hard to digest. True that at the buffet, the bread was always fresh and you could get grilled meats made infront of you. The breakfasts were the best meal for me.
I couldn't stand the Celine Dion playing. They had it going in all the restaurants at dinner time, regardless of it being Christmas. Variety missing there.
The rooms were well kept clean. Yes I had a few ants on the bathroom sink also but that did not bother me, I've seen crabes in my room in other places so i was quite pleased. Two cokes in the fridge with a bottle of water for your week. Make friends with the bar people and they'll fill up another one for you.
They are all about recycling :)
Pillows are flat but at least they give you an extra blanket in the closet.
Rooms i thought were cleaned late. I'd go back to my room at 4 to see the cleaning lady hadn't passed yet. W ater pressure ok, but hot water was rare in my room. The rest of our gang could not complain.
I badly sprained my ankle 3 days into my trip so room 2307 was pretty far from everything. Seeing it rained a lot and the ceramic was slippery, it wasn't easy in crutches either but the staff was very friendly, bringing me an extra chair, asking if I wanted ice and even got rides to and from my room with a cart. Very helpful, altho I did not find the dr. very helpful. He didn't even take time to see if the crutches were fit for me. First time user so, not too sure about the height. Now that i'm back home, my crutches are much more suitable. Note that it costs $10 CUC per day if you need them.
The pool bar guy is great! can't remember his name because it was only nice on the last day but he does great tricks with icecubes. You can see he's been trained to entertain.
Entertainement, none. In some ways it's good, when you want to rest and have some quiet time...but none at all tends to get boring if you are there one week with bad weather.
In general, I recommend this hotel for those with families, not so much a party place. Not sure if I will be back altho there are employees there that I would love to see again. Great people :)
Gym was in great condition. 2 carpets, a few bikes and a step master. was glad to see that.
Big thanks to Julio!
