My previous visit to this hotel was in the winter season, when I came simply to use the pool. At that time, I had been warned by friends that the pool was not clean, however I was pleasantly surprised to find the water was clear, with a light smell of chlorine. This time, however my experience was different. I arrived on a Sunday afternoon in early September to find about 100 Cubans in full party mode around the pool, music blasting, with hardly a tourist in sight. Everyone was having a great time, however the murky pool water looked like some sort of yellowish-lime colored soup. I did not dare go in bathing.
The standard entrance fee was CUC 10, which includes a CUC 2.00 fee for the pool and then CUC 8.00 of food and drink consumption. Alternatively, there was a CUC 5.00 alternative that included lunch at the Varma Restaurant. The waiters were quite attentive and the food was good (drinks were extra).
The tienda was closed in mid afternoon – go figure.
