tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Iman K : Toronto, Canada
Lovely place and entertainment

After reading the reviews online, I was nervous but this place turned out to exceed my expectations. It was beautiful, clean and staff was very friendly.Our room was cleaned day and night with no issue. These 2 sweet twin sisters were in charge of our room. Always smiling and happy. They'd wake me up with a sweet "Holaaa". They also left us a sweet Goodbye note on our beds before departure.The food was decent, not at all as bad as people give Cuban credit for. Fruits were delicious. I think I ate mangoes every single day. The bar staff was always there who late at night sometimes stayed up with us dancing, playing music and chatting with tourists. The nightly entertainment was amazing! Really good dancers, singers, magic shows and comedy. We were surrounded by the beaches with some breathtaking views. Also a really beautiful walkway to the beach where you are surrounded by turquoise waters and sometimes tiny colorful fishes.There's a lady at the front desk who helps with all the excursions- from horse riding to scuba diving an visiting waterfalls. Varying prices too.There are cabs always outside that take you to Trinidad city in 15 minutes. There you can walk around the markets, look at beautiful century old architecture, take pictures in front of the colorful houses, listen to live music, dance inside a nightclub in a real cave or go to Casa de la musica where the whole town gathers to dance on the streets.The only downsides I can think of are pretty small to me considering the overall excellent experiences but if you're picky, you won't be happy. - There are huge crabs that sometimes show up on the hotel but it makes for a hilarious laugh when you hear someone scream because the crab startled them. They do not bother anyone. You are right next to a water body, not in the city anymore.- Every now and then, the pool can be a little dirty from tourists going back and forth between beach and pool. But it is cleaned regularly.-Once, a cockroach showed up in the washroom. It died immediately, one phone call to the from desk and it was removed right away.One very big suggestion that no one had given me before. There is absolutely no place in Trinidad to buy Hair Conditioner. As crazy as it sounds, it is impossible. Take a bottle with you! And lots of strong sunscreen, it gets very hot in the summer months. .

Great Beachfront Hotel

Our tour group stayed at this hotel for two nights while we toured around Cienfuegos and Trinidad. The room that I had was quite large for a solo traveler and I had a beachfront view from the 2nd Floor. Unfortunately, I could not see the beach due to the trees planted along side of the hotel wing. The bathroom was quite small and one has go in and close the door in order to access the toilet. Also, the lighting is too dim and I would hate to take a shower late at night, since the shower stall gets real dark when you close the shower door. The beach is just a short walk from the tower that I was in and it looked like a real nice place to crash. I am not a water person, so I did not go into the water at all. There are bungalows adjacent to the beach, and those units must be the best due to their location.The restaurant is buffet style and the room is usually full as soon as it opens. Since there is no other hotel close by, most of the people in the hotel end up eating at the same place. I waited for awhile after the restaurant opened and the place didn't appear to be so crowded. The food is plentiful and fairly good tasting. I really enjoyed the ice cream as I had one that looked like mango and was really good.

Our grand children ( 6,3,and one year) just want to come back for next year recess. Thebeach natural pool is excellent and safe for kids, the staff very nice with kids and their requests for drinks! It is our fifth stay and the improvements are noticeable, beds, food,maintenance. The staff is as always very serviceable and smiling.Thanks to every one.

  • Valentino C :
The Bungalows are great

We had a bungalow just yards from the beach front. Very quiet, food was good, the shows were fun Lazaro, the beach bartender always came up with winner drinks not always on the menu. Loved my daily cappuccino and brandies. Available as early as u are

Great value, once again!

My wife and I stayed at the Costa Sur for two weeks in February 2017. It was our second 2-week stay there. This is a lovely Cuban resort but what sets it apart from most others is the unique and wonderful beach.If you measure a resort by the whiteness and length of the beach, this may not be for you, but read on..............The beach is protected by a 'seawall' of natural rocks so it is very safe to swim in, for people of all ages. There are no huge waves, or undercurrents, just a nice area to swim, wade, snorkel, and enjoy. The Trinidad area is almost always reliably hot, which is what most want when they go to a Cuban beach resort (but won't necessarily get in other areas of Cuba!).Add to this the view of the mountains just beyond Trinidad, and the most amazing sunsets....................it's a great beach area!So that's the 'beach' question! The other thing most asked about or commented on (by food 'experts' no doubt!) is 'how about the food'?There is lots of food, lots of choices, lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, lots of beverages and lots of variety. What more could you ask for? A couple of times they had an excellent turkey right out of the oven. And a beautiful roast beef. And so much delicious, fresh-caught fish. Many times my wife and I commented on the food............'this is delicious'!Sure there are waits at times, but the resort is popular and busy. And the staff handles things quite well.We also recommend the à la carte restaurant. It's a class act with very good food dishes, including amazing pizzas!There are three levels of accommodations. The 'standard', the 'oceanview' (but the standard rooms also have an ocean view!) and the bungalows. We had the bungalow both times, and while more expensive, they are wonderful. Roomy, and right on the beach!Overall the resort is well managed, not too noisy and kept clean.Some miscellaneous points:The nearby city of Trinidad is a must-see. It just had its 500th anniversary and carries much charming and beautiful architecture and character. There are many good restaurants now and some good night-life clubs.There are ‘excursions’ to the mountain, but we opted for a private ‘taxi’. A great way to go and our driver was from the mountain town. We had considered a car rental, but I’m glad I did not have to drive the mountain road!For bird enthusiasts (birders and/or photographers) there are some interesting birds near the resort. At the resort I saw the Cuban Emerald hummingbirds, Cuban blackbirds, several varieties of warblers, among others, and along the beach area you will likely see the Anhingas, perhaps some Frigatebirds, etc. Along the main highway to the three Ancon resorts there are several tidal flats and ponds. I saw (and photographed) many Egrets, several varieties of herons, Black Necked Stilts, Sandpipers and a dowitcher.There are no bicycles or motor-scooters available at the Costa Sur. However, I was able to rent a motor-scooter for ten days with the assistance of the hotel public-relations representative, Liyenis. Liyenis is a great resource (and lovely person!) who can assist with any concern you may have (when she is not responding to TripAdvisor comments!!).So many people reading these reviews get caught up on the 'star' ratings. Well, this is not a 5-star resort. You may choose to go to one if that is what you desire! (It is very likely that dropping your 'standards' for star ratings you may be able to afford to stay another week with the savings!). A very telling indicator of a resort's attraction and true value is returning and long-stay clients. While we were there we met folks staying 2 weeks, 3 weeks (both durations with clients from Europe included!), a couple staying 5 weeks, and another client staying 2 months. Plus, there are clients who have been returning for over 20 years!!!! Obviously, the food, service(s), beach, and true value is there for many. We plan to return.
