Hmm does that mean they will be reimbursing $$ to those that purchased a 4+* and are now all of a sudden going to 3.5*? Yeah like that is going to happen.

I went to ITravel2000 and they are both listed as 5* resorts.

Strange!! perhaps they have a lower standard for eastern Canada, but when I select those hotels on the fore mentioned sites, they show as a 5*. go figure.

Well it was NEVER a 5*. Don't know how they can get away with rating it as such!! It is a 4* on a good day but yes I would agree with 3.5* rating sometimes as well. The pricing has NEVER reflected a 5*, it has always been one of the most affordable hotels on CSM, always cheaper than the Melias who are 4.5 and 5*. That is a good indication of what you are going to get for your money...

Barbara, don't go with expectations. Just go with the flow and hopefully everything will be fine. I also vacation a lot in Mexico. What ever you do, don't try to compare the two countries. It would be like comparing apples to grapes.

Go and enjoy the people, the beaches and the heat. :)

Thanks misskittynemo and moineauqc, what types of tips or gifts should I bring? Did you have to bring your own shampoo and blowdryer? Has anyone ever gone to a Cuban baseball game? Were HUGE ball fans....
