It's Cuba. Food was good, rooms were clean. Grounds were Spotless, beaches were nice on site. Ten minute cab ride to possibly the nicest beach I've ever been to. All in all the right price makes this a great spot!

We have been traveling to Cuba for the past 15 yrs and Cayo Largo was one of the last unchartered territories that we wanted to see. Cubana flights were OK, older planes, not the cleanest, strange service - flight attendants sold full size bottles of rum that some passengers promptly opened and started drinking... Beautiful island, wild beaches with huge...

Why do people go here? I can’t speak for everyone, but in my case as in some relatives that I know that went here recently; we go because it’s inexpensive! There are so many better places to stay in Cuba for a week but if you are on a budget and just want to lie on a beach all day...

At half the price of the local rival all inclusive hotels, the Playa Blanca seemed a bargain. Unfortunately 4 star means something different in Cuba, this barely passes as a 3 star in most other countries. It wasn't the broken air con in the room, the mostly rude staff, or even the so called fitness center, the worst of all...

My wife and I decided to grab a completely last minute trip. We booked only 3 days ahead and got it for $498 each, so $996 total. This is by far the best deal on a trip that I have ever got. This hotel is rated a 3 star, which is accurate, imo. We have been 7 times to Cuba...
