This was our first trip to Cuba and hopefully won't be our last. (once I forget how bad the food it, we'll definately go back).... We loved the people~ it was great to leave the resort and explore! Havana was amazing (Thanks Jorge and Alex)
We chose the Tuxpan for it's size, the price and the proximity to town. A nice thing about a small resort is that the guest seem to be alot friendlier ~ Friends of ours stayed in a 5* and came to our resort 2 nights to socialize...they said our place was fun and theirs was too stuffy :) LOL
Location: loved the location. Really enjoyed going into town in the evening and experiencing some of the local music.
Food: I knew ahead of time that the food could be iffy. So we brought salad dressing and ketchup with us. My main complaint about the food was the lack of variety. Also, part of the dinning room was closed and the line up for the buffet was a pain. I also didn't like that you had to "order" at the pool bar...I wasn't expecting that. A lunch buffet would have been more convenient.
Pool: The pool was nice and big and centrally located. It needs some repair....some of the plastic on the outside was breaking off and made it very dangerous getting in and out.
Rooms: Basic but clean. I knew about the hard beds prior to arriving, so I was expecting that. Thank goodness we had a mattress topper after a couple nights cause I don't know if my hip could have handled a whole week! The beds are like rocks.
Resort: I really liked the layout of the resort. Everything was compact .... We travelled with 11 people so we never had to go searching for them :)
Overall I would say that the resort met our expectations, having done alot of research and knowing ahead of time what to expect. If you're on a budget and want a inexpensive vacation, this is a fine choice. People who stayed here and hated it obviously didn't do their homework...I read many reviews and was not surprised by anything...Keep your mind open and enjoy the sunshine.
