Actually this is not a bad hotel at all....... Great location, nice beach, decent but spartan rooms. Great bar with very reasonable prices and a fairly good restaurant. The cost including breakfast was 40CUC per night in January 2016.

I spent New Years in the hotel & the staff was very pleasant. I have a Cuban girlfriend who is always with me here. She is now friends...

We didn't stay at this hotel, but we ate there twice and both times, the food was good. Nothing extraordinary, but well cooked fish and, of course, rather cheap. The waitress was agreeable and could speak a bit of English. The toilets had toilet paper and were relatively clean (rare in Cuba!)

Good position, close to the ocean. We had big bedroom, but most or rooms are very small. Very poor maintenance. Cleanliness at the minimum level. Very bad pressure in water pipes. Lazy staff. Expensive (cca 3 EUR/day) beach towels for rent.

The personnel wasn't really engaged to help or even give you a better impression of this hotel. Breakfast was ok, but not a good quality. We would definitely not choose this...

Stayed one night, very shabby. Two star hotel, and no pretensions otherwise from the owners. Good location to the beach. Value OK for one night together with breakfast. Out of season rate 35CUC (CDN$45)for a single with beakfast. 45CUC for a double.
