The hotel is spread out in many bungalows which are either single (2 bdrm and 2 baths living room) or double (1 bdrm) with a patio for all. The furniture is basic and the beds are all exhausted. Some units have been renovated others not (our case) and are fed with solar hot water individually. There was never a lack...

This hotel is considered one of the best beach hotels in Bay of Pigs area in Cuba. Unfortunately it is not even closer to good. Rooms were large but very dirty with dirty bed linen. Toilets were big but the fittings were age old. There is no appealing atmosphere in the chalets . Not even a chair in the balcony...

Had a large chalet with 2 bedrooms. It was very dirty, with metal (rusting) interior doors and a front door which didn't lock properly Had to put a chair against it. Air con. worked but was just a unit fitted into a hole in the wall with big gaps to the outside world left unfilled. Plenty of hot water but...

The cabins are quite large but not very clean. One bed was broken when we arrived and there was dirty paper and an empty condom packet below the bed. It was the worst matresses we have ever tried. The restaurant also seemed dirty but the breakfast buffet was ok. The staff was very kind and helpfull.

The lunch and dinner menus exactly the same. the only thing going for it was the 2 Ladies at reception they were lovely and helpful. The woman behind the bar making the drinks very...

The Soviet architecture is a throwback to be treasured by those who are NOT attracted to the Veradero-Cancun cookie cutter scene. My group of four had an inimitable cottage with two bedrooms, living room, kitchen, two bathrooms. The buffet meals didn't vary much, but then what DID in the Soviet era (which isn't that long past). The all-inclusivo price we...

One of the worst places I experienced in Cuba. Bad food, expensive rates. The 2 * are far too much. in the bungalow only the bed room is air con but with an ancient device hardly cooling. The staff is unfriendly and not helpful at all. " we don't provide taxi service. We don't provide information on buses, No, you...

My girlfriend and I were the only tourists then and this was everywhere we went. It was quite primitive then. We didn't expect anything. But the snorkeling was beautiful. We loved Cuba we sure got lost a lot since all road signs were gone, made for some fun experiences. Food was not easy to come by then. No stores. We...

Spent two nights here in late February - friendly staff did as much as they could to serve us well (friendly reception, helpful maid, great cafe latte, snack bar etc) but overall this place is shockingly depressing and Cubanacan etc just need to get serious about it. Others have commented about the stray dogs, horses ambling around, run down, broken...
