Nice economy hotel. Very clean - and good food . Restaurant food is excellent - smoked salmon steaks - good wine and desserts. Pleasant music. In the evening, well danced entertainment on the stage in the theatre or in the pool. Beach clean plenty on sun beds . As for me, too many noisy with bad manners tourists from Russia... More

I have just returned from the Roc Arenas Doradas. The hotel is what i expect of Cuban hotels (it was my 8th time in Cuba), it is maintained as well as possible and, although lacking comforts on american hotels, was quite liveable. Our room had recently been renovated, the bed was comfortable, even if the mattress was stiff by our... More

I loved it here! When we first got there, we had a lower suite and I wasn't keen on it as it had a bit of a mildew smell but when I went to the front desk they cheerfully changed us to an upper room (731) not far from the beach and it was perfect! She asked us to go... More

The grounds are clean and very tropical. Beach awesome,ots of chairs, although many days were very windy and huge waves, but still lovely to... More

The Roc: it started out bad: had six inches of water on my bathroom floor and no one really wanted to fix it, until the Sunwing Rep went to the desk 10 hrs later. Then next morning we awoke to construction pounding and works yelling. This is the bad. Then I was told to move because no hot water, well... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here from November 6 -13. When we arrived at the resort we asked if we could have a second-floor room in either the 600-700 block of rooms. Rooms were not ready (we had the early flight out of Toronto and arrived around noon), but were given bracelets and told to come back in an hour.... More

My three friends and I stayed at this horrible resort from Nov 6th to Nov 13th. This was my fifth time in Cuba and I would never ever stay at this resort again. I've never met more rude or unappreciative staff in my life. Which is very rare for cuba. I frequent Cuba mostly because of the wonderful people there.... More
