Me and my Husband stayed here between 13 April and 27th . We travelled in a group of 20 and we got married here on 19th April.
Firstly yes we had a few problems with our rooms when we first arrived however this was sorted within an hour or so and we were given a junior suite which was brilliant. To us that was enough but to top this we were given a bottle of rum to say sorry too. The room was cleaned everyday to a high standard by the maid .
Yes Some of our group were ill with a stomach bug including myself and my husband but I don't believe this was from any fault of the hotel at all. When I stayed in Cuba at a different hotel the previous year I was also ill. I think it's a mixture of the heat and different foods not necessarily that the food is bad. When my husband was Ill the manager could not do enough for him even having some food brought up to our room.
Yes I guess there could be a bit more variety of food but the food was nice!
The pool was lovely , can't say I really noticed that it hadn't been cleaned . It seemed clean and tidy . the beach is amazing out of this world!
The Entertainment team at this hotel need a huge mention. Marvas , Elvis were fab I can Definatley recommend the Salsa and beach games.
Now to our wedding. Our wedding planner Giselle was brilliant , she was so helpful and kind and we honestly felt like we'd made a true friend by the end of our stay. Everything was organised and planned within a couple of hours to our liking , nothing was too much trouble for her. The manager Dejan even came and introduced himself to us and wished us a perfect day which we thought was a special touch.
The only thing I will say which is not a negative point against the staff or hotel is if you have a particular colour theme and you want flowers or ribbons to match please think about bringing ribbon , confetti things like that with you as you are limited to what is available in in Cuba. Don't forget this is a third world country and things you may take for granted in the UKare not always available in Cuba.
Our actual wedding day was perfect.
Although it wasn't on the beach which we knew about before we came it was just beautiful. The gardens surrounding the gazebo are so well kept, the small walk way / aisle from the hotel to the gazebo is lovely . Yes the gazebo is not far from the lobby of the hotel but that had no effect on our wedding day at all.
We would like to say a huge Thankyou to all of the staff at the tainos and a special thanks to the Manager Dejan who helped make our stay even more memorable. We tried to say goodbye but we couldn't find you before our bus arrived for the Airport.
We would go back to this hotel tomorrow if we couls and one day we will return to celebrate our anniversary and to see the amazing staff again.
