Just returned from a two week stay at this hotel (returned 25th June 2014), and firstly I must say that the staff in this hotel are the warmest friendliest I have met in all my travels. Special thanks to REY, IDONIS, RAUL (entertainment), LUIS AND OMELIO (barmen)) AND MARIANO (restaurant) for making this a great fortnights holiday for us. The Hotel is clean and friendly and the food is great , specially the chefs cooking steaks, fish , chicken (eggs and omelettes at breakfast) around the restaurant. The highlight of our holiday was a two day trip to Havana booked with ROBERTO (guy selling trips around the pool). He drove us to Havana, stop offs for bacon sarnies and lunch, was our personal guide around Havana, put us up in a penthouse apartment, personally cooked us Dinner and took us out at night. Next morning he drove us to Che Guevara's tomb in santa clara then back to the hotel, all for 150 pesos each!! can't recommend this guy enough.
The only downside was the mosquito's. Quite a lot there in June, I believe it is better later on in the year. Also, not much outside the hotel but the beach is Fantastic! probably the best beach I have ever had the pleasure of falling asleep on!! The beach bar and grill is fantastic also. There is always something to eat here somewhere pretty much 24/7 including toasted pannini's next to the bar from 11.00pm onwards.
We met some great people who I would like to thank for making it a good time - Pete and Jane, Pam and Roy, Jemma and Nicky, Lewis, Elly, charlotte, Russell, Alice and her mum, Bryan and Wendy, Shaun and Eunice, Tall john (From Southampton) (Astonishing!), sorry if I forgot anyone, you know who you are!
In closing , My advice is that if you are looking for 5 star luxury, then look elsewhere. If you are looking for a Friendly, clean comfortable 4 star that fits everything you need from an all inclusive summer family holiday, then this is for you.
If you don't like your room on arrival then you can pretty much have any empty room you want other than an upgrade. An email prior to arrival stating what you wish will usually be received well.
