Hard time opening shower and bath handles. Everything is just nasty in bathroom. The toilet hardly works, I had to flush the toilet by lifting up the tank cover every time....

Food was beter than expected, rooms were clean. Grounds were Spotless, beaches were nice on site. Ten minute cab or free bus ride to possibly the nicest beach of Cuba called Playa Sirena. It's a little island with white sand and plenty of fish around you.

Although there have been some good improvements since our last visit to ole playa blanca, there remains room for improvement. one of the issues is that this is an older hotel and the infrastructure of the hotel seems unable to handle a large influx of guests. although the hotel was closed for several months in the fall of 2016 in...

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...
