I just asked my beloved what she thought and she couldn't think of anything to complain about. Not that she has a perchance to complain....because she doesn't (though may tend toward pinching depending on what I write).
The welcome was pleasant and we were efficiently booked in, went to the room which was new, clean and modern. The only things about the room were, you have to leave a key card in the AC to keep it running, if you leave sweets or unwashed mugs in the sink there are ants (it is a tropical resort not the city) and on one very windy night the door whistled but a towel against it stopped that.
The pool was cool and refreshing, the beach was beautiful and so were the grounds.
For food you will always hear the usual negatives about Cuban food there was always something we could eat. The lunch buffet by the beach was sometimes an adventure often tasty but not always what was expected. Dinners at the A la carte's were ok we tried the Italian and oriental and they were fine but not great.
Mike's coffee house had latte's that I am told were fabulous, the piano bar had live entertainment and good service.
The staff for any hotel related service was consistently great, always pleasant and friendly returning a smile with a smile.
