2nd Visit

We vacationed here a couple years ago. This resort as wonderful. Rooms are spacious and clean. Pools are awesome with all the amenities like food and drink and games. Lots of chairs to soak up the sun. Food buffet is good, lots to choose from. Drinks are always cold. Grounds are very well kept. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Beach is great. Good snorkelling, tiki bars and chairs. 👍👍

Great staff - resort is dated

Stayed at this hotel Sept 30-Oct 7 for a wedding. All in all, a decent resort but definitely dated. A huge shout out to Javier - the bartender at the adult/relax pool, Teo from the animation team, Sandy, the waiter at the buffet restaurant, and Barbara and Jayleen in the gift shop. All went above and beyond with their kindness.

Great Second visit!!!

We decided to go back to MLD after huge price drop.Booked on Oct 13th and flew out on the 15th for $609 with ATWe've stayed and several resorts in Cuba and this is the best one so far.This was our second visit here and we knew what to expect.As with my previous review, we had an awesome time.Rooms are clean, food was good as before and better than most other Cuban resports.Grounds are clean, entertainment was very good, Mojito's everyday.Beach was good but most days the water was rough and more sea grass than before.Weather forcast before we left showed rain and cloud the full week.However, we had mostly sunny days with rain at night and some rain during the day but didn't last.We watched the Blue Jay playoff games in the Beer GardenWe met some good friends here and didn't manage to exchange information at the airport as it was super crowded.Big hello to the Hamilton group...Mike, Rita, Liz, Joe, Danny and kids.Hopefully you guys read this and leave me a message.

Nice hotel that could improve buffet

The hotel is quite nice in general. Not very old and well mantained. Rooms are clean and well equiped although a noisy air condition will disturb you in the night. Buffet in general could be better for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This is like some other 4 stars hotels in Cuba but the price is 5 stars. Wifi at the lobby was nor working properly but this is not the fault of the hotel.

We Loved it Here!!!!

Where to begin. The resort is absolutely wonderful. Very very clean, the staff is so friendly, they are the best. Our room was very spacious, we had a king bed and another twin as well. TV to catch up on all the news, that is if you want to....who wants are in paradise, so enjoy!!!! you are on vacation. The swim up bar was great. Yutilda was the very best of bartenders, though they were all great. Check in was seamless. There is a bank on the premises to change you money into convertible pesos. The grounds are beautiful. Meandering walkways around the villa type buildings, lit at night for safety. There are all kinds of places to eat, ice-cream available at all hours. Coffee bar in the main lobby....great staff. There were nightly shows put on, they were very colourful and fun....great dancers. There is a family side to this resort and also a adults side, we stay on the family side. There were 10 family members. Beach was wonderful, though the water was a little rough on some days, but beautiful none the less. Stroll along and catch the surf. Staff ready to serve you your favourite drink. We did 2 tours while there, a Speed Boat and Snorkel which was a lot of fun, and a Scuba tours. I can't say enough about the Scuba. I hadn't done one before and the tour staff was exceptional. Because I hadn't done one before, our team leader, stayed with me every minute and never left me....I can't say enough about this shore tour. Only 65 pesos each. Put on by Gaviota....highly recommend this tours. There were 2 dive sites. Both great, the second on was like swimming in an aquarium. Absolutely wonderful. Highly recommend both tours......One of the best trips I have ever been on. Can't wait to go back......
