    The worst experience in my life. Did not have the room I booked. Said they would then did not. Food in restaurants was pretty bad along the service. Heard nothing but complaints from most of the guests facing the same issues. Left and only spent 3 nights out of the 10 days. Front desks/room service/laundry service was a joke. Get an air B&B or a Boutique Hotel. Would never recommend the hotel or Iberostar chain! Found plenty of great little restaurants with great food and service. I would give the place a 1 star for the experience I had.

    Clearest turquoise ocean right in front of the hotel. Second stay in 2 years. Delicious fresh bass fish several days, tender pork, lots of fresh fruit and veggies, champagne. Wonderful reception, cleaning, support, and hospitality "Animaciòn" staff. Talented multi-lingual animators of activites (Belery, Duniel, Osvaldo, Elio, Teran, Yandy, Randy, Yanetssy, Michel, Luis, Adisbell + music guys José and Roly) such as: Stretching, Ocean aquagym, Salsa dancing ("Madre Tierra" and African dances), Spanish lessons, games. Nice crowd of Canadians, Italians, Argentinians, Russians, etc. Nice place for couples and for families as well. Glitches get worked out quickly by customer relations and front desk staff. My husband adds, "Front desk staff are effective and cheerful at all times, as is client service." Clean, lively, romantic, fun. We loved it.

    Great first trip to Cuba, friendly service, house keeping staff excellent, food was good. Beach was beautiful:) The shows in the theater were amazing , dancers very professional , singers excellent voices. Only issue we had was a mildew smell in our room , day 2 we went to customer service in our hotel , a wonderful lady her name starts with a D helped us and found us a new room, problem solved ?? Special thanks to our Sun wing rep Anaya, very informative keeping us up to date and calm during a time that became stressful on vacation , a true star ?? We will definitely be back again. Thank you , Lisa from Ontario ,Canada ????

    Fabulous resort! The ocean view room is a must. Food is good. Entertainment fun. Beach is the most beautiful I’ve ever seen, and I travel a lot. Staff was humble, always smiling and friendly. I can’t wait to return!

    Perfect for families

    I took a trip back in May 2019, so some things may not be relevant anymore. Here’s my thoughts on the hotel: Rooms: 5 stars The rooms are well kept up and cleaned. I was on the top floor on the main building. The only downside is that the shower is about 2 ft up off the ground, so if you’re an elderly person or someone with walking disabilities, you will find it hard to get in the shower. Kids pool and centre: 5 stars The pool and kids centre was the highlight of my kids trip. She absolutely loved going to the pool which was safe to be in and play there. The kids centre had a kids playground which is also a plus for parents. The babysitters were really friendly and did an amazing job at taking care of kids. The fact that this hotel is family oriented, made our experience great to be there. Food: 1 star Buffet: I know is Cuba, so I expected the food to be just ok, the buffet food was plain, either over cooked, under cooked, or just didn’t taste good at all. Most of the time I felt I was eating food from a can. Restaurants: We went to the sushi place and the Cuba restaurant. The Sushi restaurant was ok, I did enjoy the chef’s entertainment. The Cuban was good but nothing special. Beach: The beach is awesomely it’s nice and warm and great for kids to play in. The only downside of the beach is the people who like to hoard the chairs. I would see families with small children and elderly have not choice but to either put a towel on the sand, or go back because there was not enough chairs for them to sit on. Even though there were plenty of empty chairs but reserved by people.
