Reviewed November 28, 2013

This was my first time at this resort, but countless times in Cuba. First and foremost the service was phenomenal! Every employee there went above and beyond to ensure good service to make me feel welcome and I could not have had a better vacation.

The rooms are large and spotless. Food is good with a small buffet, but a good variety of meat, chicken, fish and vegetables everyday, and of course a pasta bar, grill with 2 choices, salad bar and dessert bar.. The a la carte, international food, located on the beach was good as well with a wonderful atmosphere.

They put an ice cream bar every afternoon at the sack/pool bar everyday. Grilled sandwiches from 11:00pm till early morning. The entertainment team had great games in the morning and afternoon, and a show in the evenings. Very professional and entertaining. After the shows the on site disco opens at 11:00 till 2:00. The drinks were great and not watered down with local and international drinks at the bars.

The beach was absolutely breath taking. Certainly one of the most beautiful I have seen.

The staff here are amazingly, friendly, and always smiling! Best group I have ever encountered during all my travels. Special thanks to Kenia, Maray, Ramon, Julio and Dayro for making my vacation a great one. Will surely come back.

Friendly honest staff...great beach....good service.
I had a great time. The bus ride was 2 hours but if it's in day-light, just call it sight-seeing....
Rooms were spacious with 3 double beds, very large shower and a bidet. Cleaning staff did a great job and very welcoming. Had ample hot water. Water did stop once... for a couple of hours(it has to be trucked there). Everything in our room worked. We were on the lower floor, only heard the other rooms when the staff moved the beds during cleaning, well sound proofed. Only power was 220 volts. It's the staff that could not be beat...so friendly and helpful. Many of the other visitors there were "returners' for their 6 plus stays....Swimming with the kids was the best...my little one are 5 and 10, I had no worries on the beach. Nice shallow pool and splash park.The kids-club made our stay...the lady just loved the little ones, and it gave us time for our own thoughts and...We went on an excursion to Porta Padre with the Sun-wing rep. He was very accommodating, and capable, 15 peso/person, it was worth it. The only thing I missed here was that there was no village or locals near by the resort....I like to meet farmers and see Cuban life...this resort is 40 km from habitation, at the end of a large mangrove swamp. I did manage to help some fishermen haul in their catch one early morning. Some people may enjoy this isolation, felt so very safe...but I don't worry too much in Cuba. There was some biting insects at some times of the days, but not so bad to require repellent. The little store was well stocked, and cigars were almost half the price of the airport, but they didn't have the real good ones. Our plane was delayed in Canada and they let us stay 4 hours in our room no problem. Most of the staff had exceptional language skills. We came in very late at night and a cook made some sandwiches for us after hours without us asking....how cool is that. Don't walk without shoes off the paths, there is a little burr that will make you cry. Our visit was mid Nov. was still a bit in the rainy season but it rained only at night. Temp. was perfect 20-24c. at night, 30 c. in the day. We didn't need the A/C at night. Resort not very busy this time of year. Quite relaxed. Shows each night at 9pm. and a disco was off by itself after 11pm. I never when...I sleep early. Pool bar is 24 hour. Ice cream is 4-5pm. Food was, well typical of Cuba, but I enjoyed it and the cooks and staff were friendly and seemed happy. Bank was open daily. You get beer in a glass at the lobby bar, not those little plastic cups. This is a well run resort, the Sun-wing rep. was very good too. I would have no hesitation on returning. Also my wife had a massage....she said it was the best ever...hurt my feeling a bit,,, but he was, a trained professional.

Room Tip: not too close to the pool bar...if you sleep before 11pm.

The only regret I have to say about this place is that its a three hour drive from the airport. But everything else its well worth the money we paid. I particullary loved the salt water pool meaning sometimes if you didn't feel like going to the beach then the salt water pool was great to get an even tan. The beach itself is amazing. The water is waveless and you can walk for several hundred yards before you're knee high in water. The sand is pure white and clean everywhere. There's even a cuban diver who swims near the reefs and brings back Conchas. I will definetly recommend this place to all my friends and I will be going back real soon.

Room Tip: All second floor rooms over looking the main pool are the best.

I go every single year to this place and I don't get tired of it. The beach is perfect better that other famous beaches from Cuba like Varadero and the Keys in Santa Clara. I travel with my husband and my 2 kids 9 and 4 and they have a blast, the food is delicious and the staff really friendly. I love the size of the hotel because you can get everything near by. This year we stay with family and friend and my husband and I renew our wedding vows I can only say it was a fairy tale. Iliana & Kenia they were in charge of everything and help me with all the planning since I'm from USA. I really recommend this place to anyone who just want to be around natural beauty, have a nice and relax vacation :)

Amazing beach, friendly service, good food! Love the place! Big, specious, clean rooms with amazing ocean views. Clean, quite beach with no one bothering guests. Swim up bar and 24 hr bar are come in handy while on vacation. Many free nautica options, combined with experienced divers provide for fun on or in the water activities. If one prefers land sweating, tennis courts, volleyball, jogging, yoga are scheduled daily. For adventures explorers, Porto Padre is 20 min away by affordable bus or rent a car, with many historic sites, friendly and most affordable restaurants and bars! Something for every mood or kind of person can be found in and around this resort. Have fun!!

Plain relaxation away from the hussle and bussle of any towns. Blue sky, azure ocean and the beach to die for, white powder that flows between the toes. From snorkelling or going out on the catamaran Joel is always there to help. From the customer relations to the gardeners, to the kitchen staff, they all treat you like family. That is maybe because we are all "family" and they want the best for you. Food is good and plentiful, drinks always there and your soul falls in to the flow of the Cuban rhythm....try and enjoy and you'll keep coming back.

Room Tip: facing the ocean to get the full effect of peace.
