This hotel has a beautiful beach, lovely building and architecture all around. The staff work extremely hard to satisfy the clients needs. Some rooms are refurbished and some not. All in all a gem of a place to visit. The staff are very kind. The location is good and right on the beach. If there are room issues, be sure to notify reception right away and they will resolve it efficiently. The hotel had a varied spectrum for dining, a la Cart options as well as buffet. The excursions are lovely; try the overnight Trinidad and Seafari with the dolphin visit. Havana day tour was great as well. There is a money currency issue, bring as much money as you wish to have with you as withdrawing money is near impossible at a good rate. Currency conversion is tricky. There is a staff member at the lobby bar who can give you a better exchange then the reception. In general money currency has changed much in Cuba and I am still trying to understand the difference since two years ago. Bring money for tips and gifts for the staff from your country. Something easy for us to buy is near impossible for Cubans. The beach is safe, lifeguards on duty daytime and in general very calm ocean spot. Nightlife is non existent at this hotel after the nightly themed show there isn’t anything to do other then sit at the pool bar, order snacks and drink. So after 10:30 the hotel entertainment is over. If you wish to party you need to get a taxi to go to Calle 62. The hotel has a good club open only Saturday’s, la bamba, fee extra. So, if your looking for a social and entertaining vibe this hotel lacks it for night time events. I know some other hotels have discos nightly and it’s included in the package fee, something to look into. The pools are great although close super early. You can go swimming past 7 pm. The hotel caters to families or couples well not so much solo or single travellers to be honest, that said, the staff are so lovely that I’ll be going back. The design of the building is immaculate.
Second home, second family

How good it is to return to the place where you spend your time like in your own home but with more entertainment. Where the collective treats you so well that becomes in your family. That place is the Tuxpan hotel, my second home, my family, where having a good time is out of the question and it is not an option, it is a reality...
