    as you see from the number of times of been, this hotel, has never disappointed me. sure there have been shortages, which is beyond the hotels control, there is lots to eat, water to drink, and adult drinks. this time i didn't venture outside the hotel. my week was spent, in the sun, on the beach, in the ocean, in the pool. fantastic vacation!! i can hardly wait until Cuba opens its boarders again to vacationers.

    Our room was very clean, we had an excellent view and the food was great. I went with my family in July 2005 and we had an amazing time together. The pool was great and the food was amazing, such as the service.

    My mother and I stayed here during the beginning of the virus outbreak, so the number of visitors undoubtedly dwindled down as the days went on. We had a pleasant stay, our room had a broken sink which was quickly fixed. Food was good, although the main buffet was closed for lunch most of the days. There was definitely a lack of seafood most days, although there was plenty of meat and pasta options to choose from. A variety of baked goods and dessert every day. Staff were friendly, special shout-out to Chavely and Liliana at the coffee bar for their kind service. Drink choices were perhaps subpar, and the coffee was definitely not as strong as we would have liked but good nonetheless. Beach was fairly empty, clean and lots of chairs available. Overall, a nice stay at a great hotel, would definitely recommend to any families or individuals.

    Good times cut short by Covid

    Just back from a group trip to the IB Bella Costa. Was not keen to return to Cuba though the price was right. Typically the lack of quality food puts me off. Our trip was cut short a couple days but honestly was fantastic. It's Cuba so I think one needs to rightsize expectations - the rooms are pretty beat up and while clean, are in rough shape. The beds are not exactly sleep number, but for me firm and comfortable. I suppose serviceable is the best I can say. We stayed in the main tower - upgrade to family suite was offered but at 10CUC per person per day was a tad expensive. We arrived at midnight and after a not so great experience with the 24hr cafe I was ready to leave. However, dawn came and it was 29C and gorgeous. The beach is among the best in the world and everything looked that much better in the morning. Breakfast each day had great quality with the star of the show being the omelet station where the lady staffing it (wish I caught her name) greeted you with a smile and a flourish each day and knocked out egg dishes at a rapid pace. The beach had great service from the beach crew to the bar tending staff (thanks Maikel) and felt well looked after each day. Evenings in the lobby bar were low key but fun. Of note, it's a pretty mature crowd here - not the spot for young folks looking to party. Lunch always had some good protein options and was anchored by a well protected and fresh salad bar with lots of interesting options for dressing. No fries though while we were there, but not an issue for us. The Cuban BBQ day was a highlight - awesome pork and fish. Dinner we stayed mostly do the buffet and always found something decent to eat. Wine suffered a bit in supply (no champagne in the breakfast room for mimosa's a major bummer!). Quality it wasn't much better though we found the red/rose better than the very watered down tasting white. Overall, value was great, people were friendly and attentive and the beach outstanding. We would return and would recommend it. The downsides aren't deal breakers and easily outdone by the upside. Bummer that Covid fears @ home had us leaving early.
