Occidental Paya Turquesa

Hi thinking about staying here 8/12 for 2 weeks can anyone tell me is there going to be a problem with steps to get around the hotel,as one in the party has walking dificulties. Also is there still a problem with the sand flies?

There are lots of stairs at this resort,there are golf carts running around the resort as shuttles though.

On the info I have read for this resort it clearly states that this resort is not suitable for people with mobility problems. As for the sandflies problem that appears to a current issue for all resorts in that area.

Adanac answered you perfectly. We are returning to GPT on Thursday for our 10th time...although I love this place I would seriously think about booking if someone had mobility problems. The hotel is kinda built on top of a hill and it descends all the way down to the Ocean. There are 7 pools that cascade down the hill - it is amazingly beautiful but the steps are challenging bcs there are so many of them! There is a way to avoid the steps - taking the shuttle - but it is not ideal. If you have a great attitude its worth the extra trouble to wait for the shuttles that run all around the grounds. At least you know in advance what the deal is. As for sand flies - they seem to be everywhere in Holguin area - may be an after effect of the hurricane - we will post a review on our return.
