Despite many negative comments about this place we decided to go anyway because we really wanted to visit a beach that was close to Vinales.
We stayed 2 nights in Cayo Levisa and had a really good time. We stayed in one of the newer cabins. The rooms were spacious and clean. The only problem we had was that there was not enough pressure coming from the shower head. The couple next door to us however did not have any prolems with this so it was probably just bad luck.
We found the food to be not as bad as a lot of people mentioned in their reviews. We have quite high standards and aren't really fond of buffets but this really was not as bad as we expected it to be. Of course there is room for improvement but I think that is always the case with buffets. Breakfast was nice, especially the omelet the cook prepared for us. We had dinner once in the open air restaurant where the quality was indeed somewhat better.
In general we expected the food in Cuba to be bland but we really did not have one single bad experience food wise during our trip. All the was good, fresh and tasty. Maybe we just had luck but we think that if we did not encounter bad food in 2 weeks that it couldn't have just been a coincidence.
We also found the service to be very very good. Not once did we experience a rude host. The people were very friendly, attended us with a smile, made jokes, were all so humble and all wished us a good trip home when we left. I think that if you treat the staff with respect and with a smile that you will get a lot in return. I think it also helps if you try and make an effort in speaking some Spanish.
The beach was beautiful. Snorkeling was also a very nice experience - highly recommended for just 18CUCS.
