Club Amigo Ancon
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This resort really must have been something special during its' hey day. Beautiful location just a bit worn right now. We stayed here for two nights in a beachfront cottage, the rooms were clean, and comfortable our only issues were water pressure to shower and flush toilets. Our last day there was a discernible smell of sewage and when we spoke to other gusts staying in the cottages they had the same experience. Food was buffet only, many choices, we always found the best bet was the food straight from the hot skillet. Beachfront was kept clean and a fun place.
Worst hotel I have ever been in ! Everything is broken, all staff speaks only Spanish and are reluctant to help, no hot water in the room, all doors had break-in marks.For breakfast we had to search for a table that was NOT disgusting... We stayed in the 'Tropical Wing'. Some bungalows on the beach look in better shape...
After an 8.5 hour delay we finally arrived at Club Amigo Costasur. The front desk informed us to go eat quickly as the dining room would be closing soon. The check in was swift as there were only 6 of us on the bus for this Hotel. When we woke up in the morning and opened the door of our bungalow we got a VERY pleasant surprise. The view was absolutely beautiful and only feet away from the beach. The Escambray Mountians loomed in the distance and were a nice backdrop to the crystal blue waters and white sand beach. The natural pool was calm and shallow although I would recommend water shoes. The food was good especially the big shrimp on the grill and the crab balls. The staff were very pleasant BUT some of the staff in the dining room did nothing and I do mean nothing. It seemed 2 or 3 servers did all the work running around, clearing and serving. I don't think you need 4 people standing at the door while others are working hard. We had 2 fabulous servers who smiled all the time and couldn't do enough for you and those are the 2 that got a good tip in the dining room. Our maids were very nice. The beach bartenders were pleasant and friendly with big smiles. The lobby bartenders were good too and make great capuccinos and Spanish coffees as well as mojitos etc etc.The pool bar had a very nice bartender named Jose. We would and will go back to Costasur for sure. Thank you for a great, relaxing holiday!!
We joined the tour and assigned to stay in this hotel. It's a resort hotel with all the meals and drinks inclusive. First of all, the service is crap, whether you are in the bar or in the restaurant . Food is very average and choice is limited. Both my son and our tour guide has an upset stomach after dinner.I did not go to the pool but went to the beach. There's no towel station so you need to bring your own. The beach is ok with not much wave. The gym is small and smelly.Now, the room-extremely basic and old decoration. One side of the tap in the sink is broken, so, I have only hot water. The light in the toilet is also dim. Pressure in the shower is alright but the hot water comes slowly, so, need to wait a bit.Internet in the lobby is not stable, better use it late at night or early in the morning when not many people there. Really a hotel that is strongly not recommended, there are better hotels in town like the grand hotel. You don't really need a resort but a comfortable sleep. The air conditioning is also installed in an odd place that blows directly to you when you sleep
Stayed for two nights of a 9-day tour of Cuba. Was excited for the beachfront location, but was highly disappointed after our two-night stay. Positives: beach location. Negatives: 1) Our air conditioner didn't have a remote and there was no way to manually adjust the freezing temperature or the full-force air unless we hit the off button. On the second night, the air con slats moved somehow in the middle of the night and made noise so loud like metal scraping. 2) There were cigarette ashes on the desk in our room, looked liked there had not been a thorough cleaning before we arrived. 3) Noise from the evening poolside entertainment was really loud even though we were in a separate building facing away from the pool. 4) Sliding door to the balcony was only secured by a rod, no real door lock. 5) In-room safe was a dial combination lock and no instructions for use. 6) we only had one small bottle each of bath gel and lotion (my siblings said they had a big bottle of shampoo as part of their toiletries). 7) We left a tip and note for housekeeping in the AM, but when we arrived back at our room at 2:30 PM, it was still there with no sign that housekeeping had cleaned our room. My mother and I took naps and are very light sleepers and would have heard them knock, but housekeeping never came. Our group left for dinner offsite and when we returned in the evening, still no sign of housekeeping even though our trip mates raved about the bed sheet and towel sculptures that housekeeping left for them. 8) Poor quality breakfast buffet, bread and "sausage" croquettes looked and tasted like leftovers (who wants hard garlic bread croutons passed off as breakfast toast? It was so bad that I did not eat breakfast the next morning. Unfortunately my sister did and she got sick from one of the breakfast "meatballs", vomiting four times a few hours later. Another member of our group felt ill after our first day at the hotel.The beachside location is prime, but stay at your own risk.
