    We didn't particulalry enjoy our stay here for a variety of reasons. Although the standard of food was acceptable, the restaurant was often really busy and there was sometimes a real scrum at the food counters - not just because people were trying to take food, but also because there was a shortage of plates. Worse, though, was the bar in the evenings - the music was deafening, making conversation impossible. We did try going to the sister bar just down the road, which was quieter [dead!] but closed early. The rooms were adequate, although the corridors were a bit dingy, as not all the lights were working. The pool was fine, with plenty of loungers and the beach seemed even better, although if you turn right when you get there and stroll for a while you are confronted by what appears to be an open sewer.

    The beach is great though there are waves always not big good for swimming. Lots of places for shade to choose from. The food is bad: no chicken or shrimp for a week, poor variety, but lots of fruits and fresh juices: always mango, papaya, guava. Friendly staff. Marian was the best waitress, Ivan was good too. Very quiet especially Mares part. Excursions were canceled. 1 hour from the airport. Spacious and clean rooms. Mosquitos at night but not terrible. Internet connection in the lobby was good: 1 hr for 1 peso.

    This resort has one of the most beautiful beaches that I've ever seen! There was one worker in particular named Leoxdeni Hernandez Bidopia. Although the resort was not particularly packed due to the covid-19 outbreak, he still managed to create a very fun and entertaining environment and was very easy to have simple, fun conversations with! I would definitely consider going back in the following years especially to visit our new friend again!

    We came as family of 4 mid March, including 2 teenagers. All had a great time, food was very good. Facilities excellent. Staff excellent. Beach excellent. Love the fact there is no loud music blaring at the beach! My kids looked forward to beach volleyball everyday led by Leo. Leo even got me up to play beach bocce! I never participate but will so now because of Leo. I have been to Cuba 15+ times and this hotel and staff rank number 1 in my view.

    My 7th time at this resort.

    Got back to Canada ???? on March 14th after another wonderful week at this resort.I only booked the day before arriving, but emailed Belkys on Thursday afternoon, and she’d arranged a newly renovated room for me on Friday. The bathroom has a walk in shower and a Japanese sink, although there is no bidet like the older rooms. My favourite thing is the Yoga on the beach every morning at 10 am with the fantastic animation team, mostly lovely Amauri, occasionally Leo, or Claudia all of whom are excellent. Following that,take your pick from beach volleyball, bocchi ball, aquacises Zumba Spanish or many many other choices. Yarelis is also a good dance instructor. My maid was Mylady and she did a lovely job in the room each day. The beach is wonderful, Quiet and no need to worry about loungers as Eduardo and his crew put them out as you need them and there is never a shortage. Jimmy is a lifeguard there and he has studied life saving and paramedics . There is no shortage of clean beach towels which are also used as yoga mats and George, the lovely guy in the towel hut is always accommodating . All the staff are very friendly and after your first visit it is like going home and meeting old friends. All though the buffet is very much the same there is so much choice and you can choose from all types of fish and meat and have it cooked fresh for you. There are also a la cartes and a lovely VIP special dinner for returning guests. The staff in the buffet and restaurants are helpful and pleasant, and there is also a specialty coffee bar where Paula and her colleagues will make you good things. I don’t drink, but I’m sure everything is good there. I only went to the aquatic ballet, in the evening, which is lovely. For people like me who go alone, there are trips out each morning run by Roberto for 10-12 cucs and you can go with a group, horse riding to a ranch, visit caves, or a fishing village or a school and take things for the kids and the people and get a feel for the culture. The only negative thing about this lovely place is that there are a lot of steps going down to the beach,but I think there is also easier ways to get down too.Each day there are different traders who come and set up a little market right in the resort, and there is one artisan called Orlando who is there on Cuban day to who makes amazing things from nature. Can,t wait to go back, was worth doin quarantine for.lol
