The Brisas del Mar is a gorgeous resort on Ancon beach styled a bit similar to nearby Trinidad town. They have a lovely pool and very nice beach just in front of the hotel. For non-guests a day-ticket is avaiable for 30 CUC (about 28 Euro) which gives all-inclusive access between 9am and 6pm. Pretty good deal if you are staying in a Casa in Trinidad and look for a day of fun at the beach.
We have now been at this hotel 3 times, we would love to be able to travel back again. The area is very safe and great for walking. The staff are all very friendly and professional. We always take a couple trips to the local towns really enjoying the locals. The manager, Osmany, can be depended on in looking after all your needs. We always enjoy spending a couple days with George (Jorge), another manager at the hotel , George lives in the nearby town of Casilda.
Good place, if not staying in Trinidad itself. Beach is very nice and staff gracious. As typical Cubs the infrastructure needs attention, but that is part of what one needs to accept. I will be back!!
Great view from our room, pity that you cant use the shower at any time, especially in the morning as there is no hot water, suggest you shower either in the afternoon or evening. The self service restaurant is good, just not happy about having small birds flying around the restaurant settling on the tables and walking all over the cutlery, the waiting staff did nothing to get them away, cant be healthy. Also not great that they cook some of the "meats on the spot, I had to leave the pork as it was still raw one night and the same for the chicken. I think they should pre cook some of the meat as it cant be healthy. We had to book for the "Cuban " restaurant, what a disappointment, not a good choice of food and I had to take my chicken back twice as it was not cooked. We were not told that there was a starter as in soup. Also the dessert is the same as in the international buffet, so nothing special. The al carte restaurant was good and would suggest this, however, you must book this, why I dont know as when we went it was not busy.The free drink is ok, they have the cheapest drinks and the vodka was not that good, we stuck to rum as we thought it would be the safest. Staff are friendly but I feel they want you to tip them for everything.
If you want a great beach, warm water with all drinks included this is your place. On the other hand if you like running water in your room, a safe that works and a toilet that flushes all the time you might look for another hotel. This resort appears to have been built in the 1950's and I suspect at one point it was a prime destination for American tourists. The present hotel seems to have had little or no maintenance for over 50 years. If multi-millions were spent modernizing the rooms it could again become a top destination for tourists. It appears that most of those visiting were from Europe, Canada or Cuba and room basics and amenities were a secondary considerations for them. The price is very reasonable and if low cost and a great beach are your primary objectives it can't be beat. If however, you plan to spend any time in your room other than sleeping and want to take a hot shower with adequate water pressure I would look elsewhere.
