Our Opinion
Please note that hotel standards in Cuba tend to be lower than in other Sun Destinations. Unless travelers are familiar with the resort or Cuban hotels, we typically recommend that travelers book a minimum 4 star resort when traveling to Cuba.

Overview
This elegant Spanish colonial hotel has been a long time favourite of Canadians traveling to Cayo Coco. Guests will enjoy its unique architecture and lush gardens.
Location: On the beach, 1 hr to the town of Moron, 15 minutes from Cayo Coco airport.

Average resort, not worth the money

We stayed at this resort as a family, September 2016, it is very unique colonial style, we have never been to such a quiet resort, literally myself, my wife and 2 children and another group from Ontario we met in the plane and that was it, besides the Cuban regulars. The food was average, always found something to eat, no one was sick. The swim up bar was drained and closed, no work was done to it all week. Room was nice, 3rd floor ocean view, beach was nice too, as you had the whole beach to yourself, the salt water pool was no very clean, mainly used the fresh water pool which we had all to ourselves. No daytime activities. Nightly entertainment was very lacking, best part was the piano bar where we went every evening after dinner, wonderful piano player and singers. The was lots of work going on to some of the buildings, but it needs a lot more upgrades, hopefully the new owners will invest. We found the wait and bar staff to be very friendly, but found the reception to be not very interested in us as customers and more concerned about thier cell phones. We recently stayed next door, and rated that resort which used to be part of the Colonial a 5 out if 5. We will likely not go back to Colonial and for the money spent, would not recommend it, would spend a little more money and get a much better experience and what you actually paid for, slow season or not. Sad thing is if people don't start filling up this resort, it may never move up from it's bottom rating. Thank you for listening.

Worst Hotel out of 25 we have visited in Cuba

When we arrived we were told the rooms we requested were not available. Our walk to the room was right past the pools that ran very close to the buildings and had pool views. There were two sections of the pool that were so green with algae that the water was a green-black color. ( a cesspool for germs) The others we not in good repair and not very clean. We had our 4 year old grandson with us and these were not acceptable for swimming. The childrens pool area was old and unfit for swimming. The room was old but clean. We went to the beach which was beautiful. It was lunch time so we looked around and found a small building that was serving lunch. Very little to offer at this buffet style lunch.We immediately decided we could not keep our grandson in this unhealthy place so we went directly to the Sunwing rep and were moved to another resort.This resort should be cleaned up before Sunwing sends anymore clients here.

Magical......almost

We stayed here January of 2016. We're a middle aged couple and have been going to the Caribbean for many years. This was our second trip to Cuba and first to Cayo Coco. We got an awesome deal on a ten day trip so away we went. This resort is amazing to me. I'm not typically awed by architecture but the old Spanish style immediately appealed to me. I felt relaxed and at home right away. We had a second story room in a nice quiet area with a beautiful view of the beach. Room was very clean and again, I loved the old style. Maid was awesome all week with water refills and prompt service. The beach!!! 🌴😀. Aaaamaaaazing!! The pools.....beautiful. Clean and go on forever. The drinks were wonderful. No watered down drinks here! Lovely. The food....well, ummmm, in a word, awful. 😞 I will admit I am a bit fussy, but my husband isn't and he had a hard time finding anything he liked. But we didn't go home gaunt or starving. Haha. Pizza was delish. Bread is very good, and ice cream also good. Fries and grilled cheese sandwiches were also good......when they were available, which was hit or miss. We did all the a la cartes and the Cuban was actually not too bad. After ten days we swore we wouldn't be back. However, I have never been able to forget the atmosphere, the people, the placita in the evening with the softy Cuban music and smell of a good cigar. And of course the churro wagon. Yummy!! We're going back!!!! Next January! Can't wait!

Family Vacation

We took our son, daughter in law and 2 grandson for a vacation to this resort, it was for their 10th Anniversary and coincided with my husbands birthday.It was a great vacation, all the staff is fantastic, friendly and looked after us really well!The rooms were large, clean and the AC always worked,The food was always good, lots of choices, even our picky grandson ate well!The second week, after a plane load of Russians showed up proved to be interesting.....pools were painted, bacon showed up in the buffet and there was more entertainment provided! Thanks Russians!The weather the second week was not great, but, there was always something to do and we loved this resort and are hoping to return!As this was our kids first vacation, it was a great place and did not disappoint!Special thanks to Joy for entertaining the boys, Silva for entertaining us all and the pool guy for whose name I don't remember, you will never be forgotten by the boys!

Quiet resort, decent food, beautiful beach

Well, our last trip to Cayo Coco proved that Cuba has a lot of to offer, something different from place to place. We stayed one week in May, accompanied by friend's family. And we had a good time. First impression, since we came at 10pm with rain, was that resort is too quiet and dark. Low season contributed. But, lovely and clean beach, clean and worm water reminded us why we came at the first place. Not so many tourist, plenty of shade and "your" spot can be accessible any time of day. 2 minutes distance from beach and our room was a big bonus, specially since we had 3 kids. Buffet restaurant was at 1 min distance and was serving decent food. Fresh omelet, fish and salads as well as coconut ice-cream were our favorites. During day, we were walking around, exploring, admiring great architectural elements. Coffee at lobby was great as well as Spanish coffee. They had different type of cocktails. Even enough mint for mojito. Night was a little disappointment. Very little entertainment and music. First 3 days we had to play our music at pool bar and at the beach. We are used to have a lot of lovely Cuban music, some live performances and a lot of night entertainment. Somehow, this resort was very quiet and boring at night. We used our time to talk, walk and admire composition of the shiny stars. We reminded ourselves how is lovely to see so many stars and not shiny buildings ;) Stuff was friendly but with no proper English at buffet and a la card restaurant. I ordered salad and got salt and pepper instead. Over whole, we liked this beautiful hotel. We will try to come again. If anyone from management is reading this, we are sending greetings and hoping that you will include more entertainment on daily/night basic.
