We travelled from Feb 23-Mar 1. Let me state we were a bit worried after reading some of the negative reviews. After Day 1 we wondered what some of those people were smoking!

Was there for a wedding and this was one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. Staff was always fun and telling jokes, very fluent both in french and english, For Cuba, the food was very good, lots of walking but totally worth it. If you want to be loud, make sure you go to the family pool...

I agree with Diane W. Terrible rooms, boring nightlife and the food was awful. Service was terrible and the staff barely spoke English. Spend the extra money and go to Jamaica or Aruba.
