I decided to try something new in my second trip to Santa Lucia beach with my family, so i booked Gran Club and i was told by the agent that, after the Brisas, the hotel was the most complete one…
The territory is quite big but you can enjoy some walks around..Gardens are well attended and give the resort a real tropical view.
Rooms: I had a junior suite (101) and my mom, aunt and cousin a Family junior suite (304)- guys, wonderful rooms, huge, very clean, and mine with direct sea view, plus both located less than 70 meters.
Food is not the best of its features but it could be worst, and being honest I do not go to a hotel to eat, but to enjoy my staying and for a 100% satisfaction i need very little.. Remember it is a 3 stars hotel BUT i did enjoy all my meals with my family and friends, as I did the assistance of the waiters at the buffet restaurant. Very attentive and most of the time with a smile whilst serving you, which is terrific!
There are two specialized restaurants (at least 2 were opened): Cuban and Italian. We tried the Cuban and was nice for a change, but our Canadian friends weren't that lucky and tried the italian one. They suggested us to rather go to the buffet..lol..
The lobby bar is a must, mainly if the bartender on duty is Mabel - a wonderful lady in her 50's, who's always eager to helping you enjoy a 100% tasty drink accompanied by her smile and jokes.
The beach is not bad itself - sand strip huge, nice dunes, shallow water….negative - seaweed. If you don't like the idea of walking on them, you better take some beach shoes with you.
There were some mosquitoes too , but nothing to worry about, nevertheless I suggest you to take some repellent with you. It won't hurt!!
Try some excursions to Colonial Camaguey, Playa Bonita, etc.. and hey (some very important tip: CATAMARAN IS FREE OF CHARGE..YOU JUST NEED TO GO AND BOOK THE DAY AND TIME YOU'D LIKE TO HAVE YOUR RIDE!!!)
I hope you can enjoy your holidays there the way my family & I enjoyed our stay..
Be positive, successful holidays depend on you..not on the resort you choose..
