This hotel is an excellent base of operations for touring Havana. It is not a party resort. The hotel is small, old and very run down. Other than the beautiful Ranchon behind the pool bar, there's nothing to scream about here. Bring low expectations and lots of DEET for the mosquitoes and Noseeum at night. The room was small, dank and dingy. But the AirCon worked!
Food quality is typical Cuban all-inclusive. It lacks variety and quantity due to this being a small hotel. The hotel lacks a snack bar for mid afternoon burger. The drink's are also poor quality with low end 'Santera' brand rum being served. I bought my own rum to avoid it. Sometimes they ran out of TuKola to mix with the cheap rum. Bucanero Beer was plentiful, cold, and always delicious. But all drinks are served in 200ml plastic cups. The staff working the hotel on the other hand are very friendly, helpful and kind. They don't hustle and bother you like staff in Varadero. The twice daily bus to Havana is the only reason to stay here. It is VERY punctual and was on time every time. You should make a reservation the day before, but I never did. There was always room on the bus.
The beach is always good in Cuba, wherever you go, so you will have no problems with that. This place is for people who want to be close to Havana, not for the beach!
