we stayed at the puntarena from april 11 to the 18. the weather was beautiful the entire time there. we stayed on the 2nd floor and the rooms were very outdated and uncomfortable. the smell coming from the oil refinery is horrid. it didn't matter how much we tipped the bartenders it wasn't that great service and some of them didn't speak very good english or any english.
Noel at the main lobby bar was fabulous!! Ishneil was one of the entertainment crew and he was great. very friendly.
I've been to cuba before and was prepared for how bad the food was… but this resort had probably the worst food i have ever experienced. it was terrible!
the beach is beautiful and always lots of space for everyone.
the bartender in the disco makes the best drinks on the resort can't remember his name.
if you stay on the 2nd floor its the loudest! so if you want quiet… do not stay on the 2nd floor.
the nightly entertainment wasn't the best. but on thursday they do a water show and that was awesome. apparently the rooms on the 7th floor are redone and nice.
the swim up bar was very shallow and hardly ever a bartender there.. we used to lean over and make our own drinks.
overall had a great trip but i wouldn't return to this resort again.
mostly all the bars by the pool close at like 4 pm and the only one that remains open is the main lobby bar! when the nightly entertainment plays they open the bar by that only for the time of the show and is closed immediately after show is over.
the buffet by the beach is probably the best you will eat on that resort.
we got sick from the hamburgers.tasted good while we ate them…. but you ran to toilet 2 min later.
