We stayed at this resort from Sept. 14 - 21 and absolutely loved it! We were in a standard room and did not find anything wrong with it...no need to upgrade to Lagoon room. We arrived at 11:00 am and our rooms were ready which was a huge plus(the hotel was not at max capacity which was even better)! The night of our arrival we got a knock on our door and it was a staff member welcoming us to the resort and gave us a bottle of rum. The beach is beautiful, always some activities going on (the animation team does a great job encouraging participation but are in no way pushy).
For $5 CUC you can take the bus out to Pilar beach with stops at other resorts, we spent one day at Cayo Guillermo and it's well worth it! We booked one excursion through our Air Canada rep onsite(David), it was called Ocean Splash - you get about a 15 minute dolphin experience, then off to Pilar beach where you're taken to an island for snorkeling, then a speed boat through mangroves to a restaurant/bar in the middle of nowhere for lunch (meal & all your booze/drinks are included) then to a different place for more snorkeling. A busy day and we were back at the resort by 4pm, definitely recommend that excursion.
The food at the resort is fantastic, we ate at all three a la cartes as well as the buffet and never had a bad meal. Wednesdays are Cuban day and they put on a huge lunch at the beach restaurant where you can get lobster as well. Drinks are great as well...bring your Bubba!
Definitely recommend this resort!
