WOW! What a fantastic holiday we had at this resort. We were then end August first week in September and stayed in a lagoon room. This was our first trip to Cuba and hopefully not our last! On arrival we were offered champagne while we waited to check in, which didn't take all that long considering a coach-load of people had just turned up. Our cases were taken by the kind staff and delivered to our room within 30 mins of our arrival at our room. Our room was clean, bright and modern with a wonderful view over the lagoon and mangroves. The staff are so pleasant, the hotel is very clean, the food was wonderful - if you can't find something good to eat in the buffet there is something wrong with you! The other restaurants were great too and we had no trouble getting reservations in them. A beautiful beach which is cleaned daily. We didn't have hardly any problems with mosquito bites - we probably only had a dozen between us, but whether this was because we were in the middle of the lagoon with no vegetation around us, or whether because we used Avon's Skin So Soft Original Woodland shower gel and oil spray or we just had good 50% deet spray I can say, but lots of other guests had lots of bits and swollen ankles.
My only minor niggles, which I put on the feedback sheet and the hotel has already acknowledged, were that because our room was the last in a row, only 3 times out of the two weeks was it cleaned when we returned to it at around 3-4pm after being on the beach or out on a trip - however, the maid was lovely and we just moved to the balcony whilst she cleaned. The other was that because of the time of year, we did have a torrential downpour on a couple of evenings and there wasn't enough waiters to cope with the amount of people in the lobby bar, so we just went to the billiard bar, which was quieter.
I really can't say enough about this place, it was the perfect resort and hotel and the perfect way to spend our 20th Wedding Anniversary!
