    This resort was one of the best we've been to in 10 years. Check in was fast and the front desk staff were fantastic. Very friendly staff all around this resort. The resort was very clean and the grounds impeccable and the pool was pristine. Drinks and food were some of the best we've experienced in Cuba. The hallways need some sprucing up with paint but the room we had had been renovated recently with a clean fresh paint job and bathroom was new with tiling and clean. Rooms themselves are pretty quiet but the doors needed to be slammed to get them shut. Sounded like a bomb going off at times. The lobby bar had great drinks, the pool bar had ok drinks and the beach bar had good drinks. The beach view is fabulous and lots of lounge chairs at the pool and the beach. Guests ranged from couples to young families and the pool was accessible for children and us old people lol. Overall I thought this resort deserved 4 stars not 3.5. Free in room safe as well.Not much could have been better. Except a crabby older woman who thought she was a prima donna who deserved 6 star accommodation on a 3.5 star budget and was rude to everyone around her but that's not the resorts fault they handled her perfectly So kudos to them.

    First time in Cuba and it didn`t disappoint at all! We were welcomed by the friendliest front desk staff and checked into our room right away. The resort is very clean with staff working 24 hours to ensure that. There was ALWAYS a place to sit around the pool and the beach is fantastic! The staff really went out of their way to make us feel like gold! The shows were great, especially the rock show and the magic show. Food got a little repetitive but it didn`t matter because everything else there made up for it. Our room was cleaned very well everyday, she even went out of her way to write a little note. Will definitely be back at this resort!!!!

    Great resort with an amazing beach !

    This is our second visit to this resort. This time with young children. The beach is amazing!! We found the staff very friendly. The food is just ok but enough options to make do. The coffee bar in the lobby is excellent. The pool area was perfect for the kids and adults. Everything was clean. Definitely recommend this resort for an affordable, clean and safe place to stay. We would come back.

    Great resort!
