The hotel room was OK. I don't know why everyone is complaining about the food because it was perfectly fine and if you want a variety, just go to different restaurants. The beach was amazing; very clear water. Nightlife was pretty fun, my favourite night was White Night, it was really cool. The staff was really friendly and kind. If...

Very disappointed in the food. The same thing night after night. We went to one of the restaurant and order TENDERLOIN MEDALLIONS and got blade steak. Very disappointed. Had to pay for lobster if want it. The Cuban restaurant was very good but out of the things on the small menus of choices. The lobby was beautiful looking and then...

Stayed at the Sol Rio from Feb 14 to the 21st. Picked this resort after thoroughly enjoying the sister hotel in Varadero. Overall very pleasant experience, in spite of the rooms on the Luna side being a bit worn out and shabby. Nice and clean though with good maid service. Front desk/reception was good. The food at this place is...

Our third visit, having stayed at Brisas for many years. Spanish run, good quality food & bar. Not 5 star by any means but clean, lovely & the staff are great. Superb beach (though steps down to it so a lot of people fry by the pool). Lunchtime restaurant & the Cuban restaurant for breakfast and dinner are the highlights....

So myself and a friend visited the hotel in October 2016 for an eleven night stay, we choose Cuba because we have both been interested in going. In all honesty although I had a amusing and interesting stay I think the hotel quite deserve to be considered 4* by any stretch of the imagination and before people get defensive about...

This was my first time to this hotel. In had my expectation set prior to the trip because I had friends who went to this resort many times. Yes the hotel is old but they are working on this, the lobby is new and they are renovating the lobby bathroom. The rooms are old but are cleaned every day, the...

My wife and I went to your resort for a destination wedding. The resort was beautiful and the A la carte restaurants were delicious. The locals were very helpful and the excursion to see Columbus's landing spot was a ton of fun! If you're planning on going on that excursion be prepared, you'll be riding a horse, driving a speed...
