My wife and I stayed here the week of March 11th, and we were impressed overall. The beach is amazing, and we found so much wildlife and opportunity to explore. We walked forever either way, and can honestly say Pelicano had the best beach from what we could see! The food was repetitive, but really good. I highly recommend doing the lobster dinner at the buffet. The two girls, Keily and Mailen were phenomenal. The other server Vladimir was awesome as well. The entertainment was pretty good, some very talented dancers. The entertainment coordinator was pretty nice, he always made a point to come say hi and shake our hands and see how our stay is. One thing I highly recommend is the sunset cruise, if you're looking for excursions. It was worth every penny, and then some! One final thought would be this: it is not buckingham palace, a face lift wouldn't hurt at all. But if you want a quiet getaway where the party scene isn't shoved down your throats then this is the place for you.
We traveled the week of March break (March 11-18). This was our second trip to this hotel and our 3rd to this island. Despite our delayed arrival, the hotel made checking in easy and quick. We did noticed some improvements made to the resort which made our stay that much more enjoyable. The great staff continues to impress with great smiles and lots of energy! We love the never ending beaches, where one can walk for kilometers in peace and tranquility. We had a nice room away from the pool area which was nice. The grounds were nicely kept giving the place a tropical feel. The food was great with lots of choices daily. We loved having lunch at the Ranchon by the beach with live music and a million dollar view. We love this little island and we're looking forward to coming back soon!
Just love Cuba!Great people, great weather and lots of sun and fun!Pelicano was terrific!We stayed in room 4925 which I would highly recommend as it had an ocean view, a living room area, large master bedroom and an outside sitting area by the front door.Rooms: don't forget the 2CUP's per day for the safe, water is scarce at 5:30 to 7 as they direct water to the many kitchens to prep for dinner, tip your room service daily for their services. Grounds and Pool: tidy grounds and walkways, everything is close, pool water is salt water so bring some goggles, lots of chairs and shade areas.Food and Restaurants: lots to choose from, buffet has lots of different items, not a lot of salad items but you'll survive, great pizza at the two pizza areas, awesome bbq, love the pool bar, ocean-side restaurant has a terrific buffet with live music, ale carts are the best!Extras: go on the atv's, head over to the public/private beaches (by bus, taxi or atv), catamaran and snorkeling is amazing, evening entertainment is fun and inviting, great play area for Ping-Pong and Bocce, beach walks go on forever!Some Tips: you don't have to pay the 25CUP when leaving Cuba as it's tacked on to your ticket price, tip bars and table service 1CUP when possible, bring kids clothing for 2 to 8 year olds for the many moms that work there, take a taxi to the airport when you leave to skip the bus part of things, enjoy the second hand smoke because it's everywhere and free :(You'll love Pelicano! The beach in front of Pelicano and West towards Sol are the best!Thanks to all our new wonderful Cuban friends, see you next year!
This will be an honest review of this resort, I am not a fussy person by any means but we were totally disappointed. To start with the good: Our rooms were kept very clean by Eliza our room cleaner and we were very happy for that and theocean view was amazing. The two servers Kaily and Mailyn were also amazing for what they did for our birthday celebrations on preparing our table for breakfast and supper. We had a champagne breakfast and for supper the lobster was beyond amazing which I would recommend in the buffet room for 15 pesos. We went to Sirena beach and it was amazing, the walk in the sand to get to the beach though would not be recommended for someone with bad legs or feet. They seriously need to build a boardwalk from the front to the beach for all to enjoy. The pool area was very nice but they cleaned the pool once the whole week we were there and it was a bit dirty on the bottom. Now the not so good: The food was a repeat every breakfast, dinner and supper and the guy doing the spaghetti bar was so slow that sometimes you waited 45 minutes to get a plate of pasta and the crepe and pancake bar was the same in the morning. The resort ran out of Cuban beer our third morning in and we had to drink Dominican beer the rest of the trip and the other drinks weren't much to talk about either, the Pina Coladas were more milky than slushy which was gross. The entertainment started way to late at night and it was so so. There were no games or activities around the pool at all, they came to do one dance at 3:30 and then disappear the rest of the day. the only thing they did was water arobics one day and a few games of water volleyball. They repeated the same music every day over and over. My over all rating of this place would be a 3 star to be very serious, don't expect much from this place if you go. For some people they may have liked it but I would never ever go back, the best part of our trip there was Kaily and Maillene the two ladies in the buffet restaraunt, they were amazing we thank them so so much. . This place is really dated and needs a lot of work and improvements.
We stayed here In March 2017 and had a great vacation. I was travelling with my wife and two kids (10 & 12). The beach near the hotel is amazing! The room we had was a little disappointing. Our bed was not the most comfortable and the kids had a twin bed and a cot...need I say more. The one show we went to was terrible and people were leaving during the middle of the performances. We didn't bother going back for other shows. The bars and hotel grounds are nice and the pool was great. The buffet was ok at best. If you wanted anything made in front of you (omelettes, pancakes, pasta, TOAST) you had to be ready to wait, sometimes as much as 20 minutes. The food was not that great. The buffet meats were dry and tough... Almost impossible to chew. The beach side restaurant was good but we were unable to get a reservation for dinner even though our friends said that half the restaurant was empty. We did a sunset cruise excursion that was fantastic. Saw starfish, went snorkeling, went to the iguana island and we ate on the boat while watching the sunset. Overall, the trip was worth it for the beach and the excursion but the food almost made it unbearable, especially for the little ones.
