The beach is the highlight

La B (Liverpool, United Kingdom) on Aug 02, 2022

The hotel grounds and reception are nice and the staff were pleasant. The hotel rooms were spacious but with very old furniture and bathroom was ancient but all working order. The food is not good at all and we skipped multiple meals as we couldn’t face another trip to the buffet. There is no choice for vegetarians except for fruit, bread, rice and really bland pizza. Beware the rude guests at the buffet who act like a bunch of piranhas the minute a rare tray of chips appears. I’d rather go without than be so undignified. I totally understand the food shortages in Cuba however if you are paying a lot for a 5 star experience, then be aware this isn’t what you’ll get here. At lunch times there are barbecues at the pool and beach which do burgers for the meat eaters. Again zero choice for the vegetarians so back to the bread rolls and rice. Shop on site does not stock snacks so really recommend bringing plenty in your case. They also charged 19 USD for a pair of basic flip flops so don’t forget yours. The pools are murky looking and could do with some repairs. No chance of a sun bed unless you reserve before 8am. The beach is what you come here for. It really is world class. The water is crystal clear and the sand is pure white. No problem finding beach sun beds and the beach bar with the swings is lovely. Some of the cocktails such as pina colada and mango daiquiri are very good. This is what made the holiday for me. Shame about the uncomfortable blue plastic beach beds though. There is no air con outside of the hotel rooms so the evening entertainment in the theatre area is almost unbearable due to the heat and lack of air flow. Also get eaten alive by mosquitos in the theatre area. Trip to Havana is a must to see the real Cuba. TUI need to lower their prices for this hotel to reflect the quality on offer.

It was ok but also no more than that

Lin01976 (Maasmechelen, Belgium) on Aug 02, 2022

-Hotel in need of renovation, -Not worth 5 stars -the first days there were many flies at the buffet, after day 4 I did not see a single fly. Strange. -Pool water was dirty -Evening entertainment was already done at 22h15, too bad if you know that there is nothing to do outside the resort. -On the beach it was boring, hardly any music or animation -Jeep safari was very good and the trip to havana with a private guide was also top. -the boat trip with the catamaran was not good and cajo blanco really wasn't as pretty as she suggested
