I had a view of the water and as I checked in at sunset, I was hooked. The decoration is okay, but that is not why I am in Cuba, is it? The pool area was great and you could swim in the ocean, in an enclosed area as well. Breakfast was good. Nice lobby, bar and hangout area. Taxis...

The pool is huge, and there is a protected swimming area in the sea. Buffet breakfast is excellent. There were no drinks in our mini bar but we only stayed for one night so it didn't matter. The website advertises a free transfer - this is NOT a free transfer to/from the airport, when we stayed this cost 25CUC. Quite...

Excellent reception and lounge bar.Live salsa music when we arrived late evening.Very relaxing after a long journey and made very welcome. Good choice of breakfast and very fresh.Evening meal not so good so used the excellent Italian restaurant opposite for second and third evening meals. Nice pool and well-appointed rooms (apart from the lighting (very dim)

Yes, the hotel is a bit dated and nothing like a hotel in Canada but we had a great one week stay. The room was spotless and the beds comfy. The staff were all helpful and kind. I loved the sea pool for swimming and the free evening entertainment especially the Saturday and Sunday night band. The cost of a...

Hotel Copacabana is Sunwing's Be Live Havana City Copacabana This hotel is right on the ocean. If the waves are calm you can swim in an Olympic size area in the ocean that is partly protected from the ocean waves. Great for snorkelling and scuba diving. The pool has a kids area and a swim up bar during the warm...

I guess it was cool and all because it was such a popular hotel back in the day but if you are expecting a 3-star experience, don't get your hopes up. The hotel is run down and in need of repair at every corner. That being said, it is a true Cuban icon and the service and staff were very...

Copacabana looks like once upon a time it was the place to be. We only went for a drink/lunch (didn't stay at the hotel). There are beautiful views, drinks were good and very reasonably priced and the food was average. The buildings look like they have seen better days and need a bit of attention.

Well, in spite of undeniable flaws, first of all the just occasionally working elevator, with the ensuing need to use the stairs, crumbling and dimly lighted, even with heavy baggage, I'm giving this hotel a positive review, better said, a not-negative one...acceptable food, freindly staff, which is not always the case in La Habana, quiet room.
