PROS: Amazing animation team! I generally couldn't care less about the entertainment factor when I vacation. However, the animation team were outstanding, especially LYZ and JENNY at the pool. LYZ is so warm and friendly that you immediately felt welcome. JENNY has a knack of getting even the most reluctant to participate in the contests, so much fun! The Michael Jackson show was polished, entertaining and very well done. The guitar man and piano man in the lobby bar were great! As were the all male singers that regularly entertained in the lobby.Our room was very nice and always kept very clean and the fridge and towels well stocked. The entire staff, from bartenders to gardeners work very hard and are always quick with a smile.The beach was beautiful with white sand and crystal clear water in the largest area. There was also another part of the beach that was more rocky but still easily walkable that was good for snorkeling and seeing lots of colourful fish. The weather was great, with frequent short rain bursts that happened mostly at night.The chicken dish and the steak dish in the a la cartes were very good. If you've never been to Cuba, you should know, what you think you're ordering does not always resemble your expectations. For instance, the "French Onion Soup" was merely a simple onion soup broth but very tasty. The Italian restaurant was pretty good too.CONS: The bathrooms around the pool were not always kept clean and often one or more stalls were not working. In fairness, there is alot of traffic in those bathrooms, so the upkeep would be pretty much constant. You can get around that by using the bathrooms near the snack bar which were always very clean. We went this June. As expected, June in the Caribbean is very hot, so if you have difficulty tolerating the heat, better to book more towards the fall, when the prices will be higher.I'd recommend this resort, especially because of the fun and entertainment around the pool, the gorgeous beaches and very well kept rooms. Thanks again to LYZ HANNY, hope we see you next time we visit!
We visited Perla Blanca for 2 weeks and it was one of our best trips to Cuba. We would like to say a special thank you to Sergury B. Fernandez who works at the beach bar, he was always smiling, friendly, and remembered what drinks we wanted! Also the girls who serve at the lobby bar were wonderful! The resort was clean and modern! Would definetly recommend!
This was my third time to this resort which adds up to 6 weeks in total. That is a lot of time to get to know people which makes it harder and harder to come home. The Cuban people are very special and will treat you like royalty. For some strange reason we only went to the beach once but I now regret it. We were having too much fun at the pool I guess. As usual there were a few wing dings but we just ignore them. I especially want to thank Vladimir at the pool bar. His service is top notch and hint, hint, he loves Nutella. Dunier also at the pool bar. These guys will make your vacation. All of the entertainment team and especially Yeniley. Too many people to thank but a special shout out to Quality Manager Aliesky for the little details. We stayed in building 28 as we always do and everything was perfect. We did the catamaran trip and I would recommend it. We had never done an excursion before. It's a party!! We did Privileged this time. It was OK but not much difference in service. The privilege bar is way up in the lobby so you have to walk a ways to get there is you want upgraded drinks at the pool. We never had a problem with chairs at the pool. I went down everyday at about 7:30 and I sat in the same spot for 4 weeks straight (2 trips). Please go to this resort and get to now the people personally. You will not regret it. I now call many of them family and look forward to next year where I will be spending more time off the resort with my Cuban families learning more about their culture.
The hotel is recent so facilities are in a good state. Impressive lobby and amazing view on the ocean from the path leading from the lobby to the restaurant. Large rooms with all the amenities.Buffet is ok, many choices although you could get tired of it after a few days.Left part of the beach is really fantastic and great for swimming. Right part is more rocky. There is a natural park close to the hotel.We went there by car and had to pay a 5 CUC entrance fee. A few birds and plants to spot but not really worth the 5CUC. However, we could see out of the reserve in a lagoon around 15-20 flamingos wandering around.Hotel is definitely not a 5 stars by european standards would say a 3.5 stars but its definitely an excellent place for those who want to relax.
The grounds were good, a little walk to the buffet and front desk.Internet was terrible, not a lot of service for that area in wifi, and the dial up was very slow.Beach was not good, very rocky and not a lot of sand.Food was good, and the place was relatively clean.Drinks were watered down, not the best unless you drank the beer.Price was good for CubaThe drive from the airport is too long!!
