Just over a year ago my wife and I visited the hotel and she broke her ankle on Day 1. I wrote a review focussing on the superb medical facilities and service Cuba offered as Part 1. A year on we decided to visit again (so my wife could see the resort this time standing up 👍) and so I...

Stayed here over Xmas. Hotel was nice, beach pure heaven . The staff were very friendly and very helpful. The only thing that let it down was the food, it was very repetitive and sometimes cold , a shame really as 4 years previous it was top notch.

I booked this as a last minute trip on my own. The resort itself is a bit dated however the amazing staff and facilities makes up for that. Entertainment during the day is great. The spa was amazing as the full body massage I had was so worth it. There is also the hot tub. Both pools were juts great....

Flew out from England (Gatwick) with Thomas Cook, and although this review is about the hotel I feel it appropriate to warn UK holidaymakers about Thomas Cook's (new?) policy about trying to take every penny they can from you whilst on board. You are expected to pay for the headphones for the in-flight entertainment, which is bad enough on a...

So glad that I chose this hotel. As a solo traveller it was in a perfect location with a fabulous beach and turquoise sea. One could chose to be among all the action at the Mares side or enjoy peace and tranquillity on the Lunes side. I felt very comfortable here and not intimidated. My room in block 7 on...

We had a great stay at this hotel for 10 days at the beginning of April 2017. I had emailed with a room request four days prior to arrival and it was as requested: 3rd floor, Mares section, right beside the stairs. Our room had been renovated, basic, but comfortable, very clean, new fixtures in the bathroom, no rust or...
