You have to decide what you prefer!!!

Bungalows are in two storey buildings closer to the beach and the hotel part is about 4-5 stories high.

My husband and I are travelling on the 18th September and I tried to purchase currency and was told that we would not be allowed to take in or bring currency out of Cuba so I wanted to buy travellers cheques at the Thomas Cook bureau exchange and was told that they couldn't sell them as they were American Express.

Please can you advise on what monney etc we should take.

Take sterling (or Euros) - you can exchange them at the desk in the Tainos for CUCs.This will cover you for local purchases,taxis, tipping etc.

You can pay for trips using a credit card AS LONG AS it is not affiliated to a US bank.

Ignore the doom merchants who tell you that credit cards are very expensive way of paying for trips. We actually got such a good exchange rate on the card transactions that it was only marginally more expensive than paying with cash and I felt a lot safer than taking a huge wad of cash with me to pay for trips to Havana etc.

Hi we stayed here last year and are going back on the same date as you, probably same flight from Manchester. Take Sterling each room has a safe, we got a consistent exchange rate at the hotel so could change what we needed as we went along. We stayed in main hotel last year with lovley views rooms were cleaned each day and air con worked. Have a good holiday.

Going to Tainos July 2010. If we are allocated to the hotel building what choice of views are there? Are all the rooms forward facing?

In the main hotel the rooms can look out toward the pool/sea or they can look out toward the front of the hotel in the direction of the marina,which according to some is a very nice view.I myself prefer the bungalows and even then there are different views,none of the beach/sea though.
