Overall

Had always wanted to go to Cuba and was recomended this hotel by a family member and was not disapointed! Beautifully set out, emailed in advance to request a quiet room with a sea view and in all fairness that is what we got. Read some reviews about the room being dated etc. however I had no issues with it. I suppose if you are going to base your holiday on the colour of the room you use to sleep in, it probably says something about you as a person? I found it to be a lovely big clean room with amazing views, fridge, safe and air con worked brill.
The grounds are beautifully kept, with so many little creatures to see wondering around... lizards, flamingo's, kittens, baby chicks, turtles in the pool and peacocks. I was in my element feeding the ducks in the afternoons.
Plenty of room on the beach, always a secluded spot with sunbed to sit. Also the pool had plenty of room so you weren't all squashed like sardines. Honestly the beach was out of this world, I mostly travel in Europe was nice to see such a perfect unspoilt beach. Cannot really find anything bad to say, considering how most Cubans live what they provide for guests is fantastic and after going on the dolphin trip to Trinidad (which was out of this world!!) I felt kind of guilty that we get to eat all that food when maybe they don't.
The staff go out of their way for their guests, so hard working especially the staff in the buffet style restaurant. They try hard with the food - fresh meats, pancakes, omelettes, fresh fish and fresh pasta made how you like.
We also went horse riding on the beach which was lovely, the horses are well cared for (I worry about things like that!).

If anyone has any questions at all I am happy to help. Enjoy your holidays!

Room Tip: We stayed in block 3 - sea view, by the flamingo pond and very quiet! Lush!

This hotel has easy access to the beach, large swimming pools for the younger set and a more quiet one for we older folks. The staff are fabulous and will attend to your every need. Don't forget to tip!

Rooms are very clean, some paint missing on bathroom walls as there is lots of humidity and a few things still need repair, like the lagoon. But, in Cuba things are hard to get so repairs do not happen as fast as in Canada.

This is my fourth trip there and we have gotten to know the stories of some of the folks. Lovely people who work very hard, and will help you get what you want. You should bring things to share as supplies are really hard to come by. We bring personal items, school supplies and some over the counter items. Clothing is welcomed also.

Food, well when it comes to food, if you tend to gain weight, be careful. There is so much wonderful food and fresh fish, yummmmm! You have to try the Red Snapper and Mie Mei.

I cannot say enough goods things about Tryp as I look forward to our next visit. My friend, who introduced me to Tryp, has gone 7 times and she and her husband are already planning for next year. One week is short and goes by very fast, enjoy.

Room Tip: If you are older, ask for rooms by the smaller pool.

Just returned (10/03/12) from 2 weeks at the Tryp Hotel - fantastic. Staff very friendly and can't do enough for you, nothing is too much trouble and they don't bother you or beg like in other countries.
Don't take too much notice of the negative reviews others may post. If you want a beach type holiday in Cuba at a reasonable price then you will be fine in the Tryp, if Cuban food and the way they cook things doesn't bother you then the Tryp is fine. If you don't like a beach type accommodation and foreign food then go somewhere else.
We did the the twin resort stay and went to Havana for 3 nights - absolutely fantastic. Once in Havana you need to get out and see the sights well worth it. Old Havana is a must.
They are working on the Tryp and giving it a facelift, the manager is young and dynamic and is out and about on the complex and does spend time to talk and seeks your views and comments. They put on a British night on our last night to show their appreciation of how far we have travelled and how grateful for our custom, all the staff are fantastic - special thanks to Yoell Jorge and staff in the main restaurant and Alcides Capero in the Italian / Chinese Bar.
Cuba is very basic and the Tryp is more like our 3 star than 4 star, but that is the charm of visiting Cuba. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are spotless, cleaned daily. You get what you pay for and hopefully won't be disappointed. Typically Carribean and worth every penny. The rum is a must.
The hotel is only as noisy as any other beach hotel, if you get a room away from the main pool it is quiet, the beach is excellent and the gardens are fantastic.
Long flights but well wort it.
Would I visit again - yes.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the main pool area are quiet enough, you won'y be bothered by noise.

Most of the previous reviews had some truth to them. Both the good and the bad. The good: The pool-lovely and clean and big; the buffet- a nice selection and we recommed the stir fry and pasta bars and the omelettes in the morning; the beach- lovely though it was a bit windy when we were there; the Cubans- very friendly and helpful; check in and out- very smooth
The bad: the smelly lagoon- got bug bites from it; the rooms- very out dated and the towels and sheets stained although the maid did the best she could to keep it "clean"; the a la cartes- food not great although the ambiance wasn't bad. The entertainment- mostly audience participation shows with a couple of dance numbers; the air conditioning in the rooms was terrible - mostly damp air
We all had fun in our big group but I wouldn't go back until the rooms were are renovated and the lagoon was cleaned up.

Room Tip: They don't let you choose your room anyway.
