Havana Overnight trip

I was wondering how you would know the standard of the hotel you will be staying in an overnight excursion.

Does your rep offer different prices of excursion based on the star ratings of the Havana hotels.

If you go to Havana, do you get a meal or breakfast at the hotel? What about lunch on the excursion, are you left to buy your own, or does the tour guide recommend you to certain restaurants.

Some say the hotels, they stayed in were great, with regards to location, room standards, etc. others are not so good. So any information or advice would be appreciated.

I guess it could depend on the specific Tour, however we got lunch covered by the tour both days, dinner at the hotel (4 star - though we stayed at the Occidental and didn't find it was all that great but still edible food), a breakfast buffet was also included.

With each lunch one alcoholic or regular drink was included, as it was with dinner as well.

We also went to the Tropicanna, they include a bottle of rum and some cans of coke during the show and glass of sparkling wine before it starts.

hope that helps

We spoke to our rep about this while we were away and you basically get what you pay for!! We chose the overnight havana with the tropicana and trip to pinar del rio which cost 195cuc this is the most expensive trip but you stay in one of the best hotels the panorama which was of a very good standard. all your meals were included at various restaurants and drinks were always provide.

For the lower priced overnight trips you stayed in a slightly lower standard of hotel which from what i was told was ok but not great. so if you want a good hotel pay the little bit extra and you will get it. If you want anymore info feel free to pm me.

Well yes you certainly do get what you pay for and we took the more expensive and the Occidental is a 4 star hotel. We still did not think it was up to the standard that the hotel we had been staying at had set, however others in our group were just thrilled as they had been at a 3 star in Varadero...
