Great place to get away from the everyday little battles of life...if your looking for a vacation to just relax all week this is the place for you..not much to see or do other then relax on the beach or by the pool
It's Cuba. Food was good, rooms were clean. Grounds were Spotless, beaches were nice on site. Ten minute cab ride to possibly the nicest beach I've ever been to. All in all the right price makes this a great spot!
I came here on a last minute trip with my bestfriend. I couldn't have asked for a better vacation. The staff were all very friendly and always had a smile on their faces.The manager was always walking around and every time he saw us he would ask how our trip was going and if we needed anything. The food was pretty good, they had fresh pizza and pasta for dinner. They also had a restaurant called the ranchon where they made fresh fries and burgers and a variety of sandwiches. Every monday, wednesday, and friday they have parties in town where they arrange a shuttle bus to come get you and bring you back, they were so much fun. I would definitely return to this resort!!
We have been traveling to Cuba for the past 15 yrs and Cayo Largo was one of the last unchartered territories that we wanted to see.Cubana flights were OK, older planes, not the cleanest, strange service - flight attendants sold full size bottles of rum that some passengers promptly opened and started drinking...Beautiful island, wild beaches with huge waves but still swimmable, for calmer waters head to Playa Paraiso and Playa Sirena. Free transportation from the hotel twice a day (bus and catamaran) but you need a ticket from the reception, if you didn't have one, catamaran guys charged 3 CUC ea. , completely disorganized return trip, no schedule followed, people line up in sweltering heat on the pier at 12.30 and then push their way onto the boat. First come first serve. By the way, it departs at 1 pm instead of 1.30 as posted everywhere at the hotel. Next boat might come in an hour, or 2 hours, or at 4.30 pm:)The hotel itself is nicely laid out, we had a bungalow closest to the beach. Tired furniture, dirty drapes, AC almost non existent, tried to upgrade to Italian villas which only had 25 people staying at the time - no luck, were refused with very illogical, vague excuses, why????Drink selection was the worst I experienced in all my years of traveling to Cuba. No Mojitos entire week, no club soda, no tonic, no Sprite or Cuban equivalent of Sprite, basically just beer and rum. At least wines were drinkable. Bar attenders seemed completely disinterested regardless of tipping. Artificial powdered juices, absolutely no fresh fruit or vegetables of any kind the first 4 days, then some mangoes and guava appeared for breakfast and lunch only. Buffet restaurant unbearably hot as well. Saw cockroaches running around desert serving table:(Last but not least - the Italian side self proclaimed manager (stocky, bald, moustache) was very rude, aggressive and disrespectful, typical "macho" guy, inconceivable that people of his type are employed in the hospitality industry.Many thanks to Dayma at the buffet, what a kind and warm, genuinely nice and hardworking woman!Sadly, would not even consider returning to this resort.
Went in August 1st week. 3rd time visiting. Not going again. Bad airlines, Return flight was delayed for 31/2 hrs. Airport was freezing. Had to spend all time inside airport. Staff was friendly and recognised quickly and extended service to the best. Entertainment team was great. But same repeated performance. Recognition for repeat guests was handled badly by management. Customer service big ZERO.No water many times. No AC for 4 days. Had to keep doors open for air. I read reviews from guests gone earlier. If they had same issues, why not fixed till now? Does not look like they will fix soon. It is game to fool people. Not expecting this experience this time and I know will not g again.
