Our family of 4 spent last 2 weeks of August in the villas section, booked through Nolitour. Mine and my wife's overall impression is the hotel provides good value for the money.
ROOM & GROUNDS
I asked for quiet room when booking, and on arrival we got one without reminder. Even the basic room in villa section is really a two-room suite with the door between rooms and TV in each room. Air conditioner was good, strong and quiet. However, the couple of days it rained there were water leaks, probably because we were on the 2-nd floor. The hotel is old and it shows, as many others pointed out. Grounds are well maintained though.
We came mostly for the beach, and it was perfect. Water was warm and shallow very far into the ocean (perfect for our children of 7 and 4). Do not leave towels on the beach though, as they may disappear, and the replacement cost is 10 convertible pesos (10 USD) per towel. On the bright side, there is no need to do that as there was always free palm leafs umbrellas on the beach any time of the day.
POOL and JACUZZIS
The pool was always crowded, as most people like to spend time there (could not guess why, when a perfect beach is steps away). In the villas section there are 2 jacuzzis which were not working, but still served as a great swimming pool for our youngest.
Kids really liked Animal Show and Magic Show. Also, the dancing shows at night were quite pofessional and very entertaining.
SERVICE & FOOD
Service was wonderful, all employees we met were simply nice and not focused on getting tips, as in some other places we've vacationed before. Food was good most of the times (we are not into fries and coke). However in 2 weeks there were couple of days when it felt like kitchen did not plan for the influx of local tourists who rent rooms for a day or two. Minor inconveniences were compensated though by really nice and helpful employees of whom I would like to mention Jose of Guest Services (hope you liked the book!), Janier of Reception, Tania from The Jimmy's (our whole family hopes to see you again!), and Aymara of the Room Services.
Our Nolitour representative Mayelin did great job describing available tours, of which we chose a day trip to Havana. I am glad we decided to stick with the tour guide, and not split from the group. The tour was interesting, and informative, and we wanted to see how the local people live, and we saw it.
