Currently under new management and under going major renovation thru out the resort(yes in Cuba), I gave this resort the highest rating for its 3-4km pristine beach, dry and steam saunas, and BEST value...

I chose this hotel because it looked a bit more elegant than Sol Palmeras where I went last time and because it had several pools. As it turned out, the hotel had just re-opened after two months of repairs and most of the work was not finished. None of the three specialty restaurants were open and there was only a...

We were transferred to this hotel from the sister hotel in Varadero (our original hotel was fully book apparently) we had one night here. The hotel was less than 30% full.

Good things first: The location direct on the beach and the style of the hotel are great. Even the rooms are really stylish. However even if the hotel seems to be quiet new there are a lot of shortcomings: beginning with the rooms itsels. For example my room door was broken. I could' nt get out - even with the...

We stayed here in January 2016. The hotel was ok, food was typical buffet for Cuba with bland food,though we didn't try the ala carte due to inconsistent reviews from other guests. The only downside was being so far from the city centre with buses that took forever to get back to the resort. The beach was delightful,with lovely white...

The food was decent, the hotel was alright. The rooms smelt like paint thinner, furniture in the room had just been shellacked. The staff were really great, met lots of cool people. The beer was on tap and usually flat, you could buy international beer and alcohol fairly cheap though. We stayed at this Hotel in November of 2015. If...

We had booked to stay at this hotel two months before our trip. When we arrived at the entrance to the hotel we were informed by the guard that the hotel was closed. You can understand the stress this caused, as we had received no information about any changes to our reservation. I would not recommend booking with this hotel.
