Poor 2.0
Extremely disappointed 1/10
Extremely disappointed We arrived around 1pm and were neglected over the check-ing in and forgot about us. We were added to another couple for the tour. They said we had to wait until 4pm before accessing our room. Then the room was ready and we were walked with another couple and all luggages they set up the other couple first and nade us wait outside under the sun for an extra 30mins. We decided to grab our luggage ourselves and walk towards our room unescorted. We finally got the room but it wasnt ready, there was no "blue towels" allowing you to go to use the facility ( the beach and the swimming pool) we called the lobby to signal it and waited an extra 2hours until we finally stop a cleaning lady that sorted it out for us. Our room was dirty, bath and bed were stained. Restaurants are only accessible with a reservation, if you dont have a reservation you must go to the buffet to eat there is no other options. We went to the reservation desk and the lady said everything was fully booked for the next 5 days but our stay was only 2 nights we tried to push but nothing we had to eat at the buffet every single day. Upon check out we gave all our feedback and the hotel manager Jose Martin came and gave us his business card to report our awful stay. Was a very bad experience for us and we don't recommend this hotel.

We want free wi-fi
Fantastic atmosphere overall. We would definitely use the facilities again in the near future. Nice beach, good booze, lots of activities to choose from. Planning ahead every step of the way makes things better. Late check-in for guest @ 4 pm, We did not like to wait after a long plane ride and bus ride. Disco needs a redo. The Wi-fi should be offered to guest for free. I'll give it a 4 out of 5 stars.

Not impressed with this resort
I have mixed feelings about this place. First, check in was at 4pm but I could only get to my room one hour later and my bags 10-15 more minutes after that. Second, I wasn't able to make a reservation to dine at one of the restaurants because you are supposed to make that reservation 24 hours in advance. I think this was one of the things that irritated me the most. Third, I know this is more subjective but the entertainment was pretty lame. They have a "Jazz Bar", a Night Club and a stage for performances but I didn't feel that they offer enough or good quality entertainment. Fourth, not impressed with the food and drinks. I enjoyed better meals at local restaurants and I had to drink only beer because their cocktails are terrible. Fifth, they advertise wifi as one of the amenities but you have to pay for it, 1 CUC for one hour. In general, the place looks nice and clean but for the price you pay I would expect a better experience.

Lovely Stay - would not recommend Butlers
Overall the stay was very positive - the property itself is lovely and the beach is gorgeous. We were part of their Diamond Club and had an issue from day 1 with our Butler - we were assigned someone who then promptly signed off and we didn't have anyone the following day to help us with our a la carte restaurant booking so ended up getting passed around from the Butler hotline to the Diamond Club to the Food and Beverage team which ultimately resulted in us not getting into the restaurant we preferred. The next night was their weekly Diamond Club dinner - despite being told multiple times in the 2 days prior that all details would be provided in an invite which would be delivered to our Room - we needed up with no details and had to call the Butler hotline at 6pm to find out what what happening - turns out the event started at 6.15pm! Once we gave up on trying to use the Diamond Club lounge and butlers the stay was lovely and very relaxing. All other staff were incredibly helpful and tried to go above and beyond to ensure an enjoyable stay.

Relaxing break in Cuba
Great hotel that made a lot of effort to make its guests happy. There are things in Cuba which disappoint, for example the WiFi and fruit juices which are all watered down. This I guess is part of the experience! However on the plus side this is a great hotel, with excellent service and fabulous music with multiple live bands on site every night.Like the juice some of the food is a bit hit and miss, but the Mexican restaurant was very good (our favourite) and the Italian was our least favourite.

Amazing beach, staff and food
The staff make this hotel, they are all really friendly and helpful. The hotel is well laid out as it’s big but doesn’t feel it. Lots of different areas so never feels crowded. The beach is amazing! The food is very good, especially the seafood and fish. The drinks are good brands
