We were at the resort from January 18th to 25th. We originally booked the Standard room and found it a bit too small. The room did not come with a hair dryer and had 2 small beds. We immediately upgraded for few Pesos per day to the Tropical room which was much bigger.
We had a wonderful time at the resort. The majority of the staff were extremely friendly. No complaint at all for the service. The food in general was good. We went to the three buffet cafeterias for Dinner and went to different snack bar restaurants for breakfast and lunch I believe that some people have too much expectation of Cuba's food. What do you expect for one week down South in a 3 stars resort for less than $700 which includes flights, accommodation, all you can eat food and alcohol and non alcohol beverages? For example, when we go to a Chinese buffet in Canada, half of the food is not appealing.
We did two tours during our stay; Holguin and Santiago de Cuba which we enjoyed very much and would recommend to anyone to take. For the Holguin tour, a train ride and lunch was included. Included in the Santiago tour was touring the city in classic "American" cars. Also included in that tour was a boat ride, lunch and a free bottle of rum (11 years old). We were very impressed with the quality of the meals provided. Kathy was our guide for the Santiago tour and was a very knowledgeable and pleasant person.
We spent most of our time on the public beach. Great beach and it was a very good opportunity to meet locals. Also included was water sports equipment such as snorkeling, kayaks, Hobie-cats which we went on it on three different occasions and we had such a blast, pedal boats etc. Special mention to Pedro who navigated the hobie-cat for us and he went out of his way to ensure that we (wife, daughter and monther in law) had a great time.
This was our second trip to Cuba (we went to Varadero before) and we are looking forward for our 3rd trip in Cuba in the near future.
We recommend this resort to anyone who is looking for a great time with a limited budget in a three star resort.
