This is my 5th time to Cuba and second time at the Laguna Azul. First and foremost, if you've never been to Cuba, I definitely recommend it, as both the people and culture are absolutely beautiful. I was traveling with my girlfriend and we both plan to go back to this resort sometime soon, as we had such a fun stay.
The lobby is spacious and well maintained by the friendly staff, who walk around taking drink orders with a smile while patrons sit and listen to live Cuban bands play traditional folk music. The view from the lobby balcony that overlooks the middle of the resort is gorgeous during the day and cannot be captured adequately in photos.
The rooms were very clean and pleasant, and were cleaned daily by friendly maids (thank you Ana!)
The food is excellent, especially if you enjoy fresh seafood daily - the Cuban restaurant is definitely the best.
A special thank you to the Animation team, especially Juan and Johnnie Walker, who made our stay extra enjoyable by spending time with us dancing and playing soccer. Both are beautiful people.
If you have not gone to Cuba, I urge you to forget the negative comments that you hear and give the Laguna Azul a go, you will not regret it.
