We were there from May 22nd to June 1st 2014. It was our second time at this hotel and it was a great pleasure to rediscover this hotel. DO NOT MISS the international a la carte restaurant located on the lagoon (las caletas). The food was great as you would expect in a French restaurant. All the superior rooms (lagoon) have been redone with new furniture and paint.
The Wi-Fi works quite fast at the lobby. It was 4.5 CUC per hour. There two different cards, one for onsite computer and one for Wi-Fi. Ask for the right one. I have to mention the impressive filet mignon at the buffet, it was soooo good, especially for low season. We really enjoyed the ambiance at the lobby bar. We like to drink cava (sparkling white wine) before dinner and they have plenty of bottle at the lobby and with orange juice for mimosa. We rented a car to discover the neighbor island Cayo Paredon, there is an impressive lighthouse still running since 1859.
About the construction East of Melia, yes we hear sounds, but not really loud, You cannot go to Cayo Coco and not spending one day at Playa Pilar in Cayo Guillermo. That beach is probably the nicest one in Cuba. There is a hotel under construction on the west area, not really close to the restaurant. Take the hopon-hopoff bus for 5 cuc it definitively worth the trip.
